09:27 - Lokaeda Check the album "morbid fascination of death" by Carpathian Forest, there's a song with some sax on this one.
08:29 - Unhealer First use of sax in metal I can think of is on Pan.Thy.Monium albums. It had to be Swano.
08:10 - AngelofDeth you're right, a little weird to get used to but it works pretty dang well in that song. It needs to be stylized to metal rather than just sticking a weird 80s sax break down in the middle of a song
08:04 - AngelofDeth didnt know other bands were doing it too. Very strange. Ill check that out though
06:56 - hadriel Listen to Ihsahn's On the Shores and all of the doubts anyone would ever have about the sax being in metal will be squelched
05:28 - Unhealer It's because it's just awesome <3 It really fits metal.
05:13 - Zaphod Turisas, Whispered and Behemoth are just the ones that don't pull it off, there are plenty that do.
We'll hear from 'em soon.
According to their official website: "After three years despite all difficulties the album is fully ready, we shall share 3 of the 9 songs on the internet at most to fulfill the promise we had made to our friends and Kahtmayan's fans. Naturally the album will be fully distributed by a known publisher outside Iran, most probably. And we won't be able to share the whole album on the internet till then. The first song will be published in early 2013."
Actually you can hear/view some of their rehearsals here and here.
The recording quality is awful in rehearsals, but I like some special aspects of "Sacred Fire".
