Samael - Launch First Virtual Metal Band Ever


Swiss electronic metallers Samael have launched a new project titled Above, which they have labeled the "first virtual metal band ever".

"For the story, Above was formed on the six of June 2006, it is the fruit of a collaboration between creative minds who wanted to focus on a common project. Described as "Merciless over the top Metal with an intensity rarely achieved."

Doesn't sound too bad... I'm not sure if they have heard of Dethklok, but I'm pretty sure they are a "virtual" (def. "Existing or resulting in essence or effect though not in actual fact, form, or name") band already...
