16:28 - Dima seems like an opportune time to link this [link]
16:20 - IronAngel If I were to describe her stuff, I'd probably say something like "psychedelic, drony rock with some gothic flair and the occasional metal-tinged riff." Or something.
16:19 - !J.O.O.E.! Lots of what's called hardcore, and also metalcore, is probably better described as being metal. I think people hear certain kinds of vocals and call it hardcore. Plenty of hardcore is punk based though.
16:17 - Kuroboshi One thing I've never understood is the distinction between metal and hardcore. Also, metal and grunge. It sounds to me like they're all part of metal. :P

Hail Of Bullets have announced On Divine Winds as the title of their upcoming new album to be released October, 8/11 via Metal Blade Records in Europe and on October, 12 in North America.
Hail Of Bullets' debut album ...Of Frost And War was a concept album about the Eastern front war of Germany. On Divine Winds is another concept album, this time covering the Pacific battles between Japan and the USA.
Comments singer Martin van Drunen: "This time Hail of Bullets takes on the Pacific War. The expansion of the Empire of Japan throughout Asia, introducing a full scale war using all forces combined. The massive strike back of the Americans, whose marines bravely fought many tough and bloody battles on now forgotten insulate islands spread throughout the whole Pacific. This led to desperate Japanese defense tactics such as Kamikaze, human bullets and suicidal Banzai charges. Until finally, incendiary bombings brought the empire to its knees."
Dutch Death metal masters Hail Of Bullets have finished the recordings for their long-anticipated second longplayer to be released October 8/11 via Metal Blade Records in Europe and on October 12 in North America.
Comments drummer Ed Warby: "I don't think I've ever worked this hard on anything in my entire life, but it sure has paid off! Although Of Frost And War is a tough act to follow, my ringing ears tell me we've succeeded in besting it on every level: songs, playing, production... at the moment Dan Swanö is putting the final touches on a mix that could squash a tank, and then it's off to the pressing plant! All the main ingredients of our blood 'n' guts style death metal have remained intact and I honestly can't imagine anyone that liked our previous work is going to be the least bit disappointed, on the contrary!"
Metal Blade Records have posted a sample of the new Hail Of Bullets song "Liberators". Check it out here. The song will be featured on the band's upcoming EP "Warsaw Rising". All info about that EP here.
Dutch metallers Hail Of Bullets will release a new EP in the summer, "Warsaw Rising", featuring two brand new tracks, one cover and three live recordings.
The band comments: "The new songs are "Liberators", a rumbling ode to one of the most magnificent bombers ever built and the title track, "Warsaw Rising", which tells the tragic tale of the bloody 1944 Warsaw uprising. A massive cover of the Twisted Sister classic "Destroyer" and 3 tracks from the Bullets' earth-shattering performance at last year's Party.San Open Air complete the searing sextet!"
The band adds: "The mini-CD will be released as a 6-page-Digipak sometime during the summer and will be available in a strictly limited edition of 2.000 copies only! First come first serve."
