03:01 - Maco I can't think of a good supergroup right now. :s
03:00 - no one supergroups usually imply that they will suck
02:46 - ScreamingSteelUS Supergroups do tend to be kind of bland, but I happen to love that Killer Be Killed album. That's why I'm so glad they've been touring and working on a second album. It's coming into its own as a band, no longer just a one-off.
02:36 - deadone Supergroups imply members from several famous bands getting together and often for a one-off. Off course some last a lot longer e.g. Down.
02:07 - ScreamingSteelUS I wouldn't say that Megadeth counts, because the thing that Daves Mustaine and Ellefson are known for is being IN Megadeth, even if Dave Sr. was previously in Metallica.
01:52 - Constantine Supergroups are mostly shittygroups. Getting a bunch of random people from great bands doesn't make a 10x great band.
01:46 - Severian93 At what point does a band become a supergroup? Megadeth for example now have members from Metallica/Angra/Lamb of God
"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
