21:45 - !J.O.O.E.! Disappointments for me would be Coffinworm and Lord Mantis, and Blut aus Nord haven't attained masterpiece level release for a while now and their releases haven't been very visit worthy so I guess they count too.
21:44 - Apothecary I liked the sound of the preview, it sounded like Monoliths + Scott Walker, when the actual album got going, his typical poetic nonsensical rambling took over and just ruined it
21:41 - !J.O.O.E.! After the preview song there was precisely zero expectations so I can't say I was that disappointed.
21:37 - Fearmeister Mine was probably the new Sargeist :/
21:32 - Apothecary God, this Sunn O))) / Scott Walker collab is the biggest disappointment of the year :(
21:27 - !J.O.O.E.! It only happened to me twice so you might be lucky xD
21:26 - PocketMetal If that happens I'll probably just have a heart attack, Joe.
Norwegian metallers Octavia Sperati have issued the following update:
At our last band meeting, Octavia Sperati decided to put band activities aside/take a break. We have reached a point where we have decided to put more time into other projects both within music, studies and families among other things for a while. We will all continue playing music, but we will take a break from the normal "Octavia life". If there are any news from any of us, we will of course let you know as soon as possible.
We are all looking forward to playing the lovely outdoor festival Lost Weekend near our headquarters Bergen on Friday, August 1st and will take the break after that. We are sorry to say that we will have to cancel the Dames Of Darkness festival in Birmingham in September.
Hope you all have a great great summer!
