09:27 - Lokaeda Check the album "morbid fascination of death" by Carpathian Forest, there's a song with some sax on this one.
08:29 - Unhealer First use of sax in metal I can think of is on Pan.Thy.Monium albums. It had to be Swano.
08:10 - AngelofDeth you're right, a little weird to get used to but it works pretty dang well in that song. It needs to be stylized to metal rather than just sticking a weird 80s sax break down in the middle of a song
08:04 - AngelofDeth didnt know other bands were doing it too. Very strange. Ill check that out though
06:56 - hadriel Listen to Ihsahn's On the Shores and all of the doubts anyone would ever have about the sax being in metal will be squelched
05:28 - Unhealer It's because it's just awesome <3 It really fits metal.
05:13 - Zaphod Turisas, Whispered and Behemoth are just the ones that don't pull it off, there are plenty that do.
"Veilburner", another new song taken from Enslaved's upcoming album RIITIIR is streaming exclusively over here. The almost seven-minute song is the second song to be released from RIITIIR, which will be available for public consumption on September 28th in Europe and October 9th in North America under Nuclear Blast. More album details here.
"Thoughts Like Hammers", another new song, can still be streamed here. You can also watch a making of RIITIIR clip here.
Some really great riffs in this tune. I'm definitely more excited for this album than I have been for an Enslaved record in a while. It again, sounds a lot like Below the Lights to me, which is their best album in my mind.
I'm going to try my best to ignore this song. I checked out "Thoughts Like Hammers" when they released it & that was enough for me to get excited. I Pre-ordered the album so I want to try & wait for that to arrive & discover everything in one go. Of course, knowing this song is only a click away means i'll probably get impatient & give in to temptation
