17:25 - Apothecary I definitely would not say that sludge is the "hot new trend" within metal. If anything, that's deathcore and the recent ramp up of all the pseudo-intellectual "progressive" death metal
17:23 - BlackEssence But it's true. 5 years ago I just know couple of band playing that kind of music. Now - everyone is playing it. Because why? They have no money for good guitars and amps?
17:21 - Apothecary I don't often respond to comments with memes, but that last one calls for it [link]
17:16 - BlackEssence Sludge is some kind of nu metal now. Everyone want to play it and be "so sludge". It's stupid trend.
17:09 - Apothecary I think it works both ways, really
16:31 - Kuroboshi Well, isn't it so that the fans usually vote first, and then other people also start looking into the album and don't give it as high votes, thus bringing it down.
15:48 - Apothecary Could be, I don't underestimate the degree to which people sometimes downvote shit on here to appear edgy though
Another new album on the horizon, this time from French metallers Chaos Echús. They signed a deal with Debemur Morti Productions last year and will enter the studio in August to record what will be the follow-up to Tone Of Things To Come. Their new opus will be recorded at Downtown Studios in Strasbourg. Prepare yourself for a gloomy concept album!
The band's latest album update is the following: "We have completed all vocal takes for our pre-production demo during last week's session. And we have to admit being damn pleased with the whole result. Expect T R A N S I E N T to be some kind of concept album, a deeply introspective journey of seven chapters, fulfilled by wicked, twisted, abrasive and gloomy weird sounds. We can't wait to be in August to record it!"
