00:01 - Bad English yes but she is strong in Eluveitie ... Sara van der Scnitzel wont work
23:52 - MichaelGrimley Anna doesn't have nearly the potential of Tarja. She can make it in a folk band but her singing can't hold up by itself. She has a nice voice for what it is. But that talent pool is very limited to her. She's NOT a strong singer.
20:37 - Bad English SSUS - I think Anna can be key figure,she can ride as Tarja, after NW but where is Annete?
20:29 - ScreamingSteelUS I disagree, as far as Eluveitie's music and appeal go. I think they had gotten steadily better since Evocation, and I adore Anna's voice. Plus, how many bands have a hurdy-gurdy?
Finnish progressive/melodic death metal band Crystalic are offering a free download of their sophomore release Persistence. Go to this location and get your free copy.
The band explained as follows: "So this is the way that music business works these days... We have patiently contacted record labels for over a year now and have not managed to get a single deal offered, that was nothing more than a total rip-off on the artist's expence. You really think that this material is not worth a decent release?!
We want to progress and evolve as a band and concentrate on playing live and composing new songs. This is not possible if we have an album's worth of material recorded and ready for release. Just waiting and waiting endlessly for a possible collaborator. We have waited enough and this is the only choice.
The name of the album is an indication of the last 3 years that we have managed to pull through after a near break-up and the difficult process of recording, which took almost 2 years, 3 studios and a vocalist change in the middle of it all. This album is dedicated to all of our fans, who believe in this band and to all people who fight for their dreams and never give up! So without further ado.. Download the album here, leave a comment, spread the word and LET THE METAL FLOW!"
