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."

Above's first song "Black Hole", can be heard on the new Above MySpace page.

A bit to heavy for my taste but I thought it was really awesome! Check it out!

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...

virtual metal - do they mean a virtual band, like virtual reality? like in the freaking Sims game? no real musicians, just pixels?
