06:39 - deadone I don't even buy all 9s. Some of it I just don't see as something I'd listen to regularly often enough and other stuff I just can't get (*sniff* Skyclad)
06:36 - deadone I meant literal buy which in turn means I'm going to listen to it repeatedly at home where I only listen to CDs.
06:34 - Fearmeister No, I'm poor. by 'buy-threshold' ;, I mean that you have the album take up a more or less permanent place in your music collection
06:31 - deadone As for 10s, give me an album that keeps me enthralled from start to finish and I'll give it a 10.
06:24 - deadone Oh and do you buy CDs/LPs? I notice your collection is only 43 albums. Obviously it might not be up to date.
06:21 - deadone And sometimes I buy a song based on a casual listen or even a single song (e.g. Arsis A Celebration Of Guilt when it came out).
06:19 - deadone Fearmeister, I don't necessarily have a buy threshold. Occassionally I buy random CDs without ever having listened to the band (e.g. Warbringer or Switchblade). Doesn't happen as much these days due to lack of decent CD shop
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.
