12:43 - Zaphod Well, any other country than my own would be an amazing opportunity if I ever decide to start a band, I was just giving it as an example because that's where Jari's from.
12:39 - Redn1ght Zap, Finland isn't that great apparently for touring bands.. (They seem to avoid it like a plague tormented country...)
12:31 - Zaphod Yeah, the comments on that guy's long post are also pretty entertaining.
12:30 - MelancholiaC Just curious, if he indeed turns his fanbase into a charity service, how is that any more ethically honest than "those greedy bloodsucking record companies"? (and I doubt Nuclear Blast can really be called one...)
12:26 - MelancholiaC I see that in the fb comments one guy in particular has called him out on it in a long response. Most people just want to throw their money at him through paypal...
12:20 - Zaphod The fact that I saw him live in my own country (Belgium) says enough. If I ever get a chance to tour Europe and play in Finland with my non-existent band I'll already have achieved more than I could ever hope for.
"Remember Your Name", a brand new video from Swedish metalcore band Marionette has been unleashed and is now available for viewing below. The song is taken from the band's 2011 effort, Nerve. The band is confirmed and will play at the Bloodstock Open Air 2012 Festival in the UK today.
"Stand In Line", a brand new song from Swedish metallers Marionette is now streaming online at this location. The song comes off Nerve, their upcoming new album out December 5th. More album details were previously reported here.
Gothenburg, Sweden based metal-sextet, Marionette, are set to release their upcoming album entitled Nerve on November 14th. Nerve is the band's third album and will be released digitally via Pivotal Rockordings in all major web-retail outlets and streaming services while the physical album will be self-released by the band in individually numbered high-quality digipaks featuring two exclusive bonus tracks. The album artwork is being handled by Gustavo Sazes of Abstrata Design (Arch Enemy, Firewind).
Gothenburg based metal sextet Marionette recently entered Studio Fredman with producer Fredrik Nordström (In Flames, Bring Me The Horizon) to begin recording the band's as of yet-untitled third album. Guitarist and backing vocalist Aron Parmerud made the following remarks regarding the recording sessions and progress thus far:
"The recordings for our third album are underway! We spent a great deal of time after our last UK/EU tour with BLESSTHEFALL working on new songs and ended up with over 14 songs. Last month Jimmy came in and nailed each of the songs on drums and from there we began tracking the guitars and bass all at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg. Keyboard player Linus Johansson and I are working with the ambiance of the music and the keyboards. Vocalist Alexander Andersson is currently working hard on the lyrics and vocal lines. We've made some studio photos available on our Official Facebook Page.*
Swedish metallers Marionette have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:
"We will embark on a UK headlining tour in October.
Commented bassist and founding member Mikael Medin: "UK fans get ready for some monster shows on our headlining run this October. We took three trips to the UK last year, each being better than the last. Those seeing us for the first time will get a proper evening with Marionette. In addition to extended sets, including fan favorites from Enemies And Spite, we'll play songs we haven't tried out on the road in quite some time. Fans will also see that we've worked hard to upgrade all elements of our show. We'll be announcing more shows in the coming weeks.
Swedish metallers Marionette have posted online two new songs, "The Swine" and "Through Veils", on their MySpace page.
The two songs come off the band's forthcoming album, entitled "Enemies", which is scheduled for release on October via Listenable Records.
The band adds: "Today you get your first taste of "Enemies"; we have posted "The Swine" and "Through Veils" on our MySpace page. The songs represent the new album in a good way we think: one of them is a more heavy song while the other one is more catchy. Either way, these songs take what we did on Spite to a new level. We hope you will love these songs as much as we do.
Swedish metallers Marionette have set "Enemies" as the title of their forthcoming album, due in Europe in October via Listenable Records.
The album was recorded with a team of up-and-coming as well as established names in Swedish music including Pontus Hjelm (Dead By April) and two-time Swedish Grammis award winning producer and songwriter Åke Parmerud. The album was mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordström (In Flames, At The Gates, Bring Me The Horizon) at Studio Fredman and Peter In De Betu (Dimmu Borgir, Zonaria) at Tailor Maid respectively in May 2009.
