23:01 - Erik M. Btw, say all you want about Dutch people. I'm very anti-nationalistic so honestly I have a lot of criticism on the Dutch as well. Self-centered, racist, greedy, cheapskates is what the Dutch are (I'm only the first thing though).
22:58 - Zaphod Of course it was Marcel, we go waaaaay back. He's like a brother to me.
22:57 - Erik M. Oh wait, I met him 3 times. Forgot about the Officum Triste gig in Tilburg last year. I also saw him at Dordrecht Doom Day II in May 2012, but he didn't know me yet, while I recognized him from MS. :P
22:53 - Erik M. Was that friend Marcel? I only met Marcel twice but the first time at Dordrecht Doom Day III he was shouting "The Netherlands!!!" at a band who referred to this country as "Holland". Hahaha.
22:49 - Erik M. Zaphod, my bad then. I didn't know that. I always find it funny we (the Dutch) make fun of you guys being dumb and all, while you beat us at "our" language most of the time on TV. :P
22:48 - Zaphod I had a Dutch friend once who kept getting annoyed at me doing exactly that :P
22:46 - Erik M. Holland = North Holland and South Holland btw. Two provinces out of 12. I'm definitely against referring to The Netherlands as "Holland", even though many non-Dutch and Dutch people do so.
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!
