18:18 - Alex Lemon Glad to see you added Desire's sophomore release as opposed to their debut. While I enjoy both, their second full length is their best imo
18:12 - EMols86 [link] So I just added Arcturus, Desire, Disillusion, Nocturnus and Shape Of Despair albums to my list. Definitely an improvement.

15:56 - Apothecary I love the punk feel of this, like Kvelertak on PCP [link]
15:52 - EMols86 @Jaeryd17 that's pretty cool (and insane if it were real), but I've heard of that concept before. @huascaman probably in the top 20 of best movies I've ever seen (for the record, I've seen 1200+ movies :P).
Brazilians Almah continue working on their fourth studio album, yet untitled, and have released a new album update as well as videos from the pre-production stages. You can watch the videos below which feature new material from the band. At the moment, the musicians are finishing the pre-production of new songs at the home studio of the frontman/founder of the band Edu Falaschi (ex-Angra). According to Falaschi, "the new album will be more positive. While Motion (2011) is a fucking heavy, tense and dark album, the new one will be hopeful with fast songs".

Guitarist Paulo Schroeber has been forced to part ways with Brazilian heavy metallers Almah due to health problems. Band vocalist Edu Falaschi posted the following on the band's MySpace page: "Dear Almah friends and fans! I think many of you already know about health problems that our brother, partner and member of the band, Paulo Schroeber, has recently faced. Due to these problems we had to call another guitarist to replace him at the latest Almah shows during Motion tour, but we always hoped that Paulo would be with us again very soon."
Finnish metallers Kalmah have issued the following update on their official website:
"After inspiring hunting season Kalmah has found new keyboard player. We welcome Swamplord Veli-Matti Kananen (One Morning Left) on board! Velski has already played session gigs with us in Russia and Switzerland so we knew his skills and most of all his state of mindlessness.
We have started to write material for next album and so far we have 4 songs on the way - fast and fucked. New video will be shot next summer with mosquitos and Finnish swamp soil. Song for the video has already been chosen. Studio sessions will take place at the end of this year."
