11:11 - Hex_Omega Thanks flight :D I can die now. Im in da club haha [link]
10:52 - Joe Zombie Yeah, he's talked about it. I very much enjoyed Z2 though.
10:47 - Zaphod Agreed! Although it really showed in Z² that he wasn't fully on board.
10:37 - ScreamingSteelUS In fact, I think he's even admitted as much in interviews. Still, he's 95% delicious.
10:31 - ScreamingSteelUS I definitely got that impression from Z2, which is why it turned out to be the weakest thing he's done in years. But Casualties of Cool and the Project stuff I mostly love, and what I don't totally love I at least respect.
09:23 - Desert Father I just think Devy's got too big for his boots. He seems lost and pressured to put out things he doesn't really want to do.
06:03 - Joe Zombie I could never get into Deconstruction. Probably my least favorite DTP album.
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!
