02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong
02:17 - Apothecary I still think sludge is far from "the next big trend" lol, that's grossly over-exaggerating its appeal to the average metalhead. More people are into thrash, death, and symphonic type shit before sludge, at least in my area
02:14 - Karlabos yeah, sludge seems to be quite the thing nowadays. still beats the power metal trend from when i was a kid tho
01:42 - Marcel Hubregtse BlackEssence is 100% right with his sludge comment. On average of every 20 albums I have to review each month at least 10 are sludge
Polish pride Blindead has today unveiled more news about their upcoming highly anticipated album titled Absence which will see the light of day on October 2nd, 2013 via Mystic Production. The album cover art made by Maria Michalska has finally been revealed alongside with the tracklist which you can check out below. Tell us about your impressions.
More album details were previously reported here. The music will come later.
The thing that most puzzles me is the strikethrough "Blindead". Maybe is this the end? Maybe is this the last Blindead's release? I hope not. Anyway, I don't like this cover. I prefer by far their previous "scribbles art".
