05:45 - Apothecary Marrow Of The Spirit is definitely underrated, not sure why people say Agalloch went downhill with that album. I definitely don't think they ended on a strong note with Serpent & The Sphere though
23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
23:51 - Czerny Reiter Ashes Against the Grain & Marrow take the cake for me. The Mantle has some sections where it loses steam and gets all too mellow.
Blood Stain Child just unleashed their new music video today and announced the new line-up. You can enjoy the new tune "Nexus" below. They also plan to release their new single "Nexus" this summer. Enjoy!
Japanese trance metal band Blood Stain Child have recently released a trailer for their new single Last Stardust to be released in December, 2013. This single will also feature their new female vocalist Kiki, who replaces Sophia after she left the band last year. You can watch the trailer below.
Japanese metallers Blood Stain Child have broken the news of the departure of their Greek singer Sophia, who joined the band in 2010 after their former vocalist Sadew left, and made her debut with the band on their 2011 release, εpsilon. She has now decided to leave the band.
Japanese metallers Blood Stain Child have announced the postponement of most of the dates on their European tour in November and December. The dates in Russia and Ukraine will however remain as scheduled.
Here it is the statement from the band: "EU tour postponed - Due to various unfortunate situations, we could not avoid the change in schedule. Therefore, we would like to apologize to all the fans that have been waiting for us, from the bottom of our heart. Soon, we will be able to announce new dates for the tour, so we ask for your understanding and your patience."
Blood Stain Child - the Japanese cyber-melodeath band with contemporary Japanese music culture influences - have signed with Coroner Records for the release of their fifth album.
The album will be released in the spring of 2011, although the release date has not been confirmed yet. Ettore Rigotti (Disarmonia Mundi, Slowmotion Apocalypse, Destrage, Stigma) will take care of production, mix and mastering of the album in his "The Metal House" studios.
After the success of the previous album Mozaiq, mixed by Tue Madsen and released in Europe and America by Dockyard1/Locomotive and after some line-up problems, the band finally announces the new members: Greek vocalist Sophia and drummer GAMI (ex-Youthquake) had been added to the band.
Japanese metallers Blood Stain Child have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:
As of June 2010, Sadew and Violator are resigning from the band. Sadew is leaving due to musical differences, or rather to embark on a journey towards self-realization. Violator inherited his father's business in a state of many, different feelings, so he is no longer able to continue band activities. All of you who supported Sadew and Violator until now, thank you very much.
Regarding the next album, we have already recruited and started working with a session vocalist and a drummer.
Apart from the member change, our next work, is by far superior than anything we have done until now, so please look forward to it.
