20:53 - !J.O.O.E.! Maybe more like 40% / 60% in favour of dark ambient though really. - Lol, that list hadn't been updated since April, I'm surprised anyone missed it at all =P
20:51 - Jaeryd Alright, I'm down for that, then. BTW, what happened to your bigger 2016 list? I was using it to explore random albums, haha. I guess your smaller one will make my explorations a little more focused, but still...
20:47 - !J.O.O.E.! Heard it a few days ago, and yeah, it's pretty damn good :P sort of half an half dark ambient and droning black metal.
20:46 - Jaeryd [link] I have no time to listen to this today but someone check this out and tell me if it's any good
"We are very sad to inform you that we have separated from Thilo Herrmann. After all the euphoria about the second guitarist in the beginning, first doubts regarding the current situation of the band started showing up bit by bit.
There were many different things, starting with the free room on the stage and going on to musical aspects, that have been observed by every old member of the band independently and which finally made us feel that we would have to separate from Thilo. This decision has been made by common consent and on behalf of the whole band. It does not have to do with any interpersonal problems or the like. In fact we took it very hard to separate from that really nice guy that Thilo is.
Grave Digger has been a well-attuned team for a very long time and according to expectations it's hard for a new musician to become integrated. Where previously a well practised team performed on the stage we were not able to pal up to a sixth man.
As for Thilo we wish him all the best for his musical and private future."
Pff .. I saw them a few days ago and everything seemed fine. They came up with an enjoyable show and I thought this little variation did them good. It also didn't look like there was some unnecessary rivalry going on.
