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.

Dunno how this leaked so early, but here's the opening track, "Deadlock"!
Pretty awesome song I have to say!
I'm in agreement. Compared to their s/t, it's like they took Metal and added some more aggression to it. Granted, that is a very loose/unfair comparison, but all in all, the main point is that it hits really well.
Also, this is one of the few cases where I'm very pleased with Padden's vocals. It feels like a fresh breath of air since it fits the song... at least in my own opinion.
Yeah! Love the re-recordings of 21, Word Salad, and Brain Dance a lot. Somehow, Padden's voice fits these tracks extremely well. And Jeff's vocals on 21 is just killer, in my opinion. I think I like his vocals better here than on the original. I think the one I was the least satisfied with is Bloodbath, which I just couldn't see his voice fitting anyways. It's still an ok re-recording though.
