06:39 - deadone I don't even buy all 9s. Some of it I just don't see as something I'd listen to regularly often enough and other stuff I just can't get (*sniff* Skyclad)
06:36 - deadone I meant literal buy which in turn means I'm going to listen to it repeatedly at home where I only listen to CDs.
06:34 - Fearmeister No, I'm poor. by 'buy-threshold' ;, I mean that you have the album take up a more or less permanent place in your music collection
06:31 - deadone As for 10s, give me an album that keeps me enthralled from start to finish and I'll give it a 10.
06:24 - deadone Oh and do you buy CDs/LPs? I notice your collection is only 43 albums. Obviously it might not be up to date.
06:21 - deadone And sometimes I buy a song based on a casual listen or even a single song (e.g. Arsis A Celebration Of Guilt when it came out).
06:19 - deadone Fearmeister, I don't necessarily have a buy threshold. Occassionally I buy random CDs without ever having listened to the band (e.g. Warbringer or Switchblade). Doesn't happen as much these days due to lack of decent CD shop
Polish extreme metallers Hate have completed work on a new album, entitled Erebos. The album is slated for a November 2010 European release via Listenable Records. The album will be available in North America in January 2011 as an "extended version" featuring bonus live material.
Erebos was recorded at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland with producers Slawek and Wojtek Wieslawski (Decapitated, Vader). The new album contains ten new songs, which are said to be a fusion of blackened death metal, industrial and ambient sounds, deathcore and heavy metal. "Erebos" comes from ancient Greek and means literally "deep darkness" or shadow. Studio reports and vlogs are available on the band's MySpace page.
