19:59 - Ceddybu pretty much agree with J-swizzle about amazon, ain't had problems with them and theres some good deals
19:50 - Cynic Metalhead Ebay are retarded. i once ordered Razor and they delivered defect one. i though gotta new one but that annoyed me like anything,
19:44 - Redn1ght Just a little annoyance to me Jaeryd, nothing much else. :p
19:15 - Jaeryd17 But I don't see how auto-rip is a problem, since it's not required that you use those files at all. Basically it's just a nice extra that doesn't cause any problems, so I'm not sure how that's a bad thing.
19:11 - Jaeryd17 I've never had a problem with Amazon. And sometimes you can find some really good deals on new CDs that aren't delivered by Amazon themselves, so you don't get the auto-rip anyway.
Finland's progressive death/doom metal band Barren Earth have entered Helsinki's Sonic Pump Studios to record the follow-up to last year's highly acclaimed debut album, Curse of the Red River.
The band has written 12 new songs, and is currently laying them down with engineer/co-producer Jukka Varmo. Dan Swanö (Katatonia, Opeth) will once again be at the mixing helm. The tracks mainly continue in the vein of the previous record, having perhaps even more 70's prog influences, but maintaining the basic heaviness and brutality one has come to associate with Barren Earth.
The album is due for release in autumn 2011 on Peaceville Records, and the artwork will be made by Paul Romano (Mastodon, etc.). Studio reports will be updated at Barren Earth's Facebook page.
Barren Earth recently completed a successful US tour with countrymen Finntroll & Ensiferum, as well as receiving the accolades of "Newcomer of the Year" at the Finnish Metal Awards, and "Best debut album" at the Metal Storm Awards 2010 for Curse of the Red River.
