12:43 - Zaphod Well, any other country than my own would be an amazing opportunity if I ever decide to start a band, I was just giving it as an example because that's where Jari's from.
12:39 - Redn1ght Zap, Finland isn't that great apparently for touring bands.. (They seem to avoid it like a plague tormented country...)
12:31 - Zaphod Yeah, the comments on that guy's long post are also pretty entertaining.
12:30 - MelancholiaC Just curious, if he indeed turns his fanbase into a charity service, how is that any more ethically honest than "those greedy bloodsucking record companies"? (and I doubt Nuclear Blast can really be called one...)
12:26 - MelancholiaC I see that in the fb comments one guy in particular has called him out on it in a long response. Most people just want to throw their money at him through paypal...
12:20 - Zaphod The fact that I saw him live in my own country (Belgium) says enough. If I ever get a chance to tour Europe and play in Finland with my non-existent band I'll already have achieved more than I could ever hope for.
Next week Folk/Power Metallers Elvenking will fly to Germany to Gernhart studios to record the drums for the band's next album. All the drum parts have been checked and everything's ready for recording. "Zender is hitting as hell and the groove is already there!" says the band. Elvenking will stay in Germany until the drumming is completed, and from there travel back to Italy to work on the last arrangements and lyrics. After that Nino Laurenne of Sonic Pump studios will set the basic sounds of the album and the other recording sessions will start.
Elvenking also says that they'll give updates as often as they can, with studio reports, pictures from their recording sessions as well as videos.
Here is a comment by guitarist Aydan: "What can I tell about the songs? One word: heavy!!! Be ready for the most
crushing Elvenking album to date, but with all the melody still there".
