04:50 - The Maratha Also, black powerfully blending with genres of death, drone, psychedelic, doom, sludge and so on. More or less, this past 2 years there has been a trend of experimentation in metal altogether.
04:44 - The Maratha The problem is that Sludge creepingly blends into heavy, doom, black and death. Look at Roadburn for instance.
03:24 - Marcel Hubregtse SLudge is actually already dead since most bands in that genre are copying each other . Savannah SLudge is doing it and so are the others. If you hear mrore than 6 new sludge bands each months you will notice it.
02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong
02:17 - Apothecary I still think sludge is far from "the next big trend" lol, that's grossly over-exaggerating its appeal to the average metalhead. More people are into thrash, death, and symphonic type shit before sludge, at least in my area
02:14 - Karlabos yeah, sludge seems to be quite the thing nowadays. still beats the power metal trend from when i was a kid tho

Irish metallers Primordial have revealed the artwork and tracklisting for their upcoming album, Redemption At The Puritan's Hand, which will be released on April 23rd in Europe (April 26th in North America) via Metal Blade Records.
About the front art, vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga commented: "So it's finished, ready, done and dusted as they say. The cover was done again by our by now resident art executioner Paul McCarroll from Unhinged Art. Simple I think you will admit but definitely one that we argued least about through all the years, dark, macabre and beautiful it perfectly portrays the themes of the new album, which I will get into shortly."
