02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong
02:17 - Apothecary I still think sludge is far from "the next big trend" lol, that's grossly over-exaggerating its appeal to the average metalhead. More people are into thrash, death, and symphonic type shit before sludge, at least in my area
02:14 - Karlabos yeah, sludge seems to be quite the thing nowadays. still beats the power metal trend from when i was a kid tho
01:42 - Marcel Hubregtse BlackEssence is 100% right with his sludge comment. On average of every 20 albums I have to review each month at least 10 are sludge

Norwegian metallers Sahg have issued the following update:
"Sahg has signed a new record deal with Indie Recordings. The band's engagement with Regain Records is hereby terminated. Sahg's third album release is already being planned, due for release through Indie Recordings in October 2009."
Singer and guitarist Olav Iversen states: "Signing with Indie Recordings seems like the most natural thing in the universe for Sahg to do. These people really care more about the music than the money, unlike most others in this business. That was crucial for our decision. We believe this is the right place for Sahg to develop further and keep on expressing what we want musically."
