08:09 - BlueMobius Just got my tickets for the Decibel Magazine tour! :D
07:14 - ScreamingSteelUS My top choice was Persefone's "Spiritual Migration." Next was In Vain's new album, and after that I couldn't decide between Amon Amarth and Children of Bodom. Omnium Gatherum's I liked.
06:31 - AngelofDeth also think it was the fact that not much else came out that was good. Beyond is Omnium's best yet so I gave my vote to them but damn it still not that great an album
05:52 - deadone My problem goes down to individual albums where songs blur into one tedious dirge
05:51 - Unhealer Wonder what would have happened if the staff hadn't nominated them. Would they still win as write-ins?
05:38 - ScreamingSteelUS I wouldn't go that far, but I agree they can be repetitive. For me, it's one of those cases of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." "Twilight of the Thunder God" may be my favorite, though.

"A few days ago I checked my mail and was happy to find out Toy's Factory had sent me the Japanese releases of our last 2 releases: The Scattering Of Ashes and The Incurable Tragedy! It's nice to know that we have such great industry people and fans supporting us in Japan. I will never forget the great times we had in 2008 and 2009. Japan rules!
In other news, we have started rehearsals again and things are coming along. We have also started on "song 1". I have lots of music demoed at home now, so we are looking through it and starting our first new song. So far the song starts with an arpeggio instrumental and then heads into some heavy riffing.
The wait is finally over as Canadian extreme progressive metal "icons" Into Eternity proudly present their new conceptual, visual masterpiece for "Time Immemorial". The track appears on the group's critically acclaimed concept album, "The Incurable Tragedy", which debuted at 17 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart upon its September release.
The video, which features vocalist Stu Block in a prominent role, was filmed in Montreal in August, just before the group embarked on the Summer Slaughter Canada tour. That trek was followed by a run alongside the legendary Iced Earth, which capped off a year that also saw the band tour with Symphony X, At The Gates and The Dillinger Escape Plan, among others.

Comments bassist Troy Bleich:
"We ended up making it to Montreal just in time for our video shoot for 'Time Immemorial.' The location was awesome, as it was apparently a haunted house. Didn't see any ghosts, though. That would've been cool, as it might have filled in the 13 hours of time spent waiting for Stu's acting career to take flight! In all seriousness, it was a very cool experience and I think the video is going to be awesome. Thanks to the director Craig and the rest of the crew for making it a time that was truly...immemorial."

Extreme progressive metal leaders Into Eternity have completed the touring cycle for their highly acclaimed album, "The Scattering of Ashes", and are currently hard at work on material for their much anticipated new recording, which guitarist/vocalist Tim Roth says will be the group's first conceptual album.
"The Scattering of Ashes" campaign saw the band embark on five North American tours with highlights including an appearance on Gigantour performing alongside Megadeth and Lamb Of God, but it was this past summer's tour alongside Dream Theater that really saw the band reach out to a new audience.
Roth states: "We are officially done touring for "The Scattering Of Ashes". We ended up doing 150 shows and being away for close to 200 days of the year! The whole band did a great job, as it's not always easy being away from home for so long, but I think it's important to do it the old-school way and tour as much as we can. No one can say we're a lazy band!
Canadian progressive death outfit Into Eternity has officially announced the addition of new members Steve Bolognese (ex-Beyond The Embrace) on drums and Justin Bender on guitars.
Tim Roth (guitars, vocals) states: "We are really excited to announce Steve and Justin as permanent members. Both will be hitting the road with us in January. They figured all the music out by ear, so I didn't have to teach them anything. That just blew me away. Steve can do rapid-fire double-bass at 240 beats per minute, so the drumming on the new album won't be a problem for him. Look for us on the road in the U.S. this spring. See you soon."
