23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
23:51 - Czerny Reiter Ashes Against the Grain & Marrow take the cake for me. The Mantle has some sections where it loses steam and gets all too mellow.
23:45 - Overrwatcher The Mantle is beautiful. It's not technical or experimental, it's just a well-crafted album made with simple instruments. I show it to non-metalhead friends and they love it.
23:12 - Netzach 3rd, compared to those albums, The Mantle contains a lot more post-rock and acoustic/folk.

The band issued the following short update on their Facebook page, letting us know that a new album is in the works: "Today we will start the vocal recordings for the 5th Bloodbound album! The album will be released on AFM Records after the summer! Greetings from Nosferatu and the boys!"
Bloodbound are pleased to announce the addition of bassist Anders Broman to their ranks!
The band commented: "We're very excited to have Anders in the band and we are looking forward to working with him. He is adding his own flavor to the band as well as being a very powerfull player and live performer."
Former bass player Johan Sohlberg decided to leave the band and focus on his career and family. The break-up was on good terms.

Swedish metallers Bloodbound have issued the following update on their official website:
"Bloodbound has decided to part ways with lead vocalist Urban Breed. Due to musical and personal differances the band has decided to move on with a new lead vocalist. We wish Urban the best of luck in the future and thank him for his time in the band.
Bloodbound's new lead singer is 27 year old Patrik "Pata" Johansson (Dawn Of Silence) from Finspång, Sweden! Patrik has been a good friend to the band for a while, and with a great voice sounding like a mix between Bruce Dickinson and Tobias Sammet he will fit perfectly into the band.
We want to give him a warm welcome, and we're looking forward to work with him.
One of Sweden's finest metal vocalists - Kristian Andrén - joins BLOODBOUND!
Official statement from the band:
We're proud to announce that one of Sweden's finest metal vocalists, Kristian Andrén, has joined the band. He is previously known from Memento Mori (featuring members from King Diamond, Mercyful Fate and Dream Evil) where he replaced Candlemass singer Messiah. He was also the original voice in Wuthering Heights and Tad Morose. Kristian is an extraordinary singer and front man with an incredible voice and we're very exited to have him on board!
We are also happy to announce that Tomas' younger brother Henrik Olsson is our new rhythm guitar player. Henrik is an experienced and highly educated musician with a background in jazz and can handle most musical styles. A new bass player will be announced shortly.
