22:59 - !J.O.O.E.! Interesting. BTC draws a lot of influence from Mexican culture (might be some bands from there too). Will have to look into that movement / scene.
22:58 - 3rdWorld @Red Maybe the ones who can write a solid record I guess instead of writing a good opener and then stuffing the rest of the album with fillers.
22:57 - moonflash Apparently this underground black metal circle buisness is a thing, I discovered a similar label from Mexico, need to look into it further though. [link]
22:53 - Redn1ght How does anyone dare to release an album with shitty songs at the start staring at your face? :p
22:52 - !J.O.O.E.! Btw, I usually update this thread whenever something new from the group pops up [link]
22:49 - !J.O.O.E.! Yeah as comps go it's one of the best I've heard. The first 3 tracks aren't great but the rest are gold.
22:49 - 3rdWorld @Joe That seems to be a really interesting comp from Crepusculo negro. Of course I should've seen it coming, its the label that Arizmenda is on. Browsing music through labels is really fun.
Canadian masters of brutality Cryptopsy are currently putting the finishing touches on their sixth full-length studio album, "The Unspoken King". The band recently announced the addition of new frontman Matt McGachy (3 Mile Scream) and keyboards/samplist Maggie Durand to their line-up. Vocalist Matt comments the work on the new album as follows:
"The studio process has been very fulfilling. We have just recently finished all of the vocal tracks and the samples are in the process of being completed. The songs are just as brutal as on the previous albums while being far more concise. We have even brought in ex-Ion Dissonance vocalist Gabriel McCaughry to add some vocals to a track called 'Anoint The Dead'. Some of the other tracks on the album are called 'Worship Your Demons', 'The Headsmen' and 'Bemoan The Martyr'."
Regretfully, Cryptopsy have been forced to cancel their recently announced tour of South America in March, after drummer Flo Mounier broke his knee cap. Mounier had completed the drum tracking process for the group's new album prior to the incident, so it did not affect the recording. The tour of South America is expected to be re-scheduled later in 2008.
European Cryptopsy fans will be delighted to hear that the band will be touring Europe right on time of the release of their highly anticipated new effort in May-June 2008, supported by Decrepit Birth and Unmerciful. So, prepare to be crushed!
