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
Paradise Lost has announced that the band will be working on their new album this autumn, which will likely be released in 2017. This will be the first album they release under Nuclear Blast Records, after signing a deal with them this year.
Gothic metallers Paradise Lost are returning with opus number fourteen, The Plague Within, on June 2nd in North America (one day earlier internationally) via Century Media. In anticipation of this release, the band has now premiered the new lyric video for the track "No Hope In Sight" which is the first new song you get to hear and also the album opener. Is it a worthy successor of Tragic Idol? You can be the judge of that.
Candlelight Records has confirmed October 9th as the North American release date for Daylight Dies' new album, A Frail Becoming, four years after the release of Lost To The Living. Mixed by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Katatonia, Devin Townsend), the album features photography from award-winning Jonathan Mehring and packaging design by Agni Kaster. The cover artwork, final tracklist and album teaser can be found below.
British gothic metal act Paradise Lost will release their highly anticipated new album "Faith Divides Us - Death Unites Us" on Century Media Records on September 28, 2009 in Europe and October 6, 2009 in the US.
Now, "The Rise Of Denial", a brand new track from this landmark gothic metal opus has been posted at the band's redesigned MySpace site.
Guitarist Greg Mackintosh comments: "A classic PL song. This was the first song written for this album and the reason I decided to switch to 7 string guitars. It's almost like melodic, well structured grindcore. Dropping to 'A' really took this song in a different direction. It gives the song a kind of crushing, seething anger."
