Virgin Black - New Album On The Way


The End Records have set a release date of February 19th, 2008 for Virgin Black's "Requiem - Fortissimo", the much-anticipated follow-up to 2007's "Requiem - Mezzo Forte".
On its latest album - the second instalment of a trilogy - Virgin Black exhumes the death/doom vibe of early Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride albums. This is by far the band's rawest and heaviest work to date.
The album's cover art was created by esteemed fashion photographer Andrew Dunbar who's work will be seen throughout the series.

"Requiem - Fortissimo" tracklisting [cover]:

01. The Fragile Breath
02. In Winters Ash
03. Silent [listen]
04. God In Dust
05. Lacrimosa (Gather Me)
06. Darkness
07. Forever

Oh yeah can't wait! Requiem Mezzo Forte was great, so I hope it will be better... Surely it will be more metal and extreme...

Yes, except for Damnation by Opeth :p. However, this actually is their heaviest album up to date because thats the focus of the album... heavy, raw and dark. Hell, they even have death metal choires!

Yes is true that happens a lot, but in this case though they had it planned like that, this album will be the heaviest and most raw of the trilogy but the next one is supposed to be the mellower and more symphonic. I can't cait for it
