21:48 - 3rdWorld Unearthly good stuff. Vocals and songwriting couldn't be any better. Reminds me of Protest The Hero/Mastodon but much more fun than either of those. [link]
21:13 - !J.O.O.E.! Totally forgot what that album even sounds like lel. I think I recall it being good though.
21:12 - 3rdWorld I know this is something Joe shared in last year recs thread. But seriously, this is one of the best fucking album titles I've come across. Artwork isn't shabby either. Very epic-y. [link]
21:09 - Netzach Duck me sideways, Bölzer's new shared track is awesome: [link] (submitted it as news too)
21:07 - 3rdWorld Very nice. But sounds a bit dry to me could've used some cymbals. Or Maybe thats the desolate sound they were going for.
21:06 - !J.O.O.E.! Actually a release from last year but oh well.
21:00 - !J.O.O.E.! Immense funeral / death-doom [link] feels like this year was sorely in need of something like this.
Fear Factory members Christian Olde Wolbers (guitar) and Raymond Herrera (drums) are proud to announce the debut album of their new group, Arkaea. The band also features one of metal's hungriest young singers, Jon Howard (Threat Signal).
Arkaea has just finished up preproduction and are scheduled to enter the studio to begin recording.
The band's yet untitled album is due out fall 2008 on Koch Records and plans for touring are under way in support of the record.
Geez... in how many bands are FF going to break, anyway? Divine Heresy already sounds like FF-II... I'll have to wait 'til I get home to listen to Arkaea's MySpace to say something about what they play, but I sure wish it's not FF-III.
I love FF, but too many clones are a bad thing.
