21:47 - Risto It's their own tongue-in-cheek description. The vocals tip it over to the avantgarde side I think.
19:55 - Moose Many thanks to whoever introduced me to Astronoid via the shoutbox the other day. Their new album, Air, is magnificent. I can even understand why some refer to their genre as "Dream Thrash".
19:12 - Opethian @Apothecary, I got to meet him when I saw them play at Denver this past January. Dude is down to earth and was a privilege to get to meet him and Dallas \M/
18:18 - Apothecary Yeah, you wouldn't want to get in a fight with him though. Just check out this vid lol, apparently at this show some dumbass was throwing beer on his pedals [link]
18:01 - Marcel Hubregtse Karl is a small,. albeit quite fattish mf. He is smaller than I am. And I am only 5'11"
17:56 - 3rdWorld He definitely isn't massive as he once was.
17:26 - Apothecary I think I am slightly taller, I'm about 6 feet. But he is definitely a bigger guy than I am, overall
According to a statement on the band's website, Turisas have begun work for their upcoming third album in Sound Supreme studio, Hämeenlinna, Finland - the same studio where the band recorded the previous album The Varangian Way. The new album, successor to the renowned records Battle Metal (2004) and The Varangian Way (2007), is due to be released still later this year.
Vocalist, songwriter and producer Mathias Nygård comments: "After a nine-month break from touring to be able to fully focus on songwriting, we've finally moved forward and have now started recording. It's going to be a long project, and keep us busy all the way until the break of summer, but believe me, the wait will be all worth it. With three years between albums, there's been enough of time to find a fresh angle and new ideas not to repeat ourselves or albums we've done in the past. The songs rock big time, but the epic elements aren't going anywhere - it's going to sound larger than ever before. The leap forward is going to be just as big as between Battle Metal and The Varangian Way. "
