14:48 - !J.O.O.E.! I'm so used to the original now though, that I'm not sure the vinyl version will be enough for some people. Definitely clearer and punchier though, particularly regarding little details.
14:25 - Dima ooo defs gonna check that out. The original was unbearable for me
13:38 - !J.O.O.E.! Having heard most of this version now, it's a contender to knock Unlock The Shrine of its pedestal [link]
13:00 - Timmeh Indeed, I cannot possibly read the word 'Mayhem' without hearing the voice of Necrobutcher.
11:46 - !J.O.O.E.! Funnily enough some of the best tracks from that BTC comp are from the new entities, that have nothing else to their name [link] Probably Ramirez fucking about.
11:37 - Joe Zombie Still waiting for updates on Charlie Fell's new band...
08:34 - ScreamingSteelUS I've returned from tonight's show with a setlist from Mayhem, a pick from Watain's bassist, the new Mayhem and Rotting Christ, a Mayhem shirt, and vomit on my shoes from the guy next to me. Shook Necrobutcher's hand. Good show.
Among those who still hold faith in melodeath, Be'lakor's upcoming opus is certainly on their wishlist. The Australian band has been throwing hints our way on their Facebook page. This time around, the band seems inclined to take into account their fans' (constructive) opinions. Whether or not they actually influence the album will only be made apparent after our first glimpse of the material but Be'lakor's album number four is on its way.
A few updates from the band include the following:
"...We're also thinking about ideas for the next album's theme. There's a good chance it will be a concept album. Stay tuned, more updates to come!"
"...The first new song for the next album is also nearly complete. We're able to explore more ideas this time around..."
"...favourite Be'lakor riff, and why? ... Keen to hear your thoughts as we continue to work on album number four!"
"...favourite metal producer? Anyone you'd like to see us work with?"
Shaun and John hard at work on new material. Also present: a pot belly heater for warmth, and an Axe-Fx II for effects and pre-amping
The band's latest offering Of Breath And Bone won the best Melodeath / Extreme Power / Gothenburg Metal album on Metal Storm Awards 2012.
