11:54 - Overrwatcher I had to leave Knotfest after Trivium due to dehydration issues ($5 water when I'm broke), Carnifex was so fucking good. Got autographs and a busted nose. 100% worth.
11:52 - !J.O.O.E.! Everyone should stop arguing and listen to Crimson [link]
11:50 - Overrwatcher I oversimplified it quite a bit, my bad on that. Marcel is right, Opeth has growls but no other DM characteristics. DM-influenced? Definitely. Actually DM? Definitely not.
11:47 - Overrwatcher My god, people are STILL arguing about my late night Opeth post? To clarify, I meant that the average person will go "wow, death metal can be good", regardless of whether or not Opeth is DM.
10:24 - Joe Zombie Let's play a game. I'll post a track and you have to tell me if its Opeth, or Mumford & Sons.
10:08 - Mr. Strawberry Judas Priest's "Better By You, Better Than Me" is really a weird song (lyrically)
09:42 - Mr. Strawberry I'm not really sure..., but I hope no one will steal my name "Mr. Strawberry" as their band name. My name sounds really cool and smart anyway.
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. "
