15:49 - E.Mols86 Compare it to whatever you like, I still find it totally silly. My brother went to the Anime Con a few years ago normally dressed. The year after they went in costume so they fit in and didn't feel like outcasts.
15:48 - MechanisT There seems to be a recursive pattern in all this.
15:46 - !J.O.O.E.! But people make lists to show off ;)
15:44 - E.Mols86 That's a strange comparison. Cosplay isn't so much about discussing your favourite anime movie/show, but rather about dressing up like your favourite character and showing off your costume. So it's totally different.
15:38 - Syk EMo - same could be said for your movie/TV/black/doom discussions. just a way to meet like-mindeds, innit? surround self with safe satisfaction, maybe expan 2 somethin' new
RIP Vomitory. The last update from the Swedish death metal band revealed plans of a new album but today they have announced that Vomitory is disbanding at the end of this year with eight albums under their belt and a career of 24 years.
Swedish death metal horde Vomitory have been busy on tour but the band has now checked in to let us know what they have been up to, including news about a new record. The band stated: "It's been a while since our last news update at vomitory.net, but we have been quite active during the summer nonetheless. We experienced two absolutely fantastic shows at Hellfest, France in June and at Obscene Extreme in the Czech Republic. Thanks to every single one of you who attended and gave us your massive support! And a huge thanks n' cheers goes out to superheroes Danny Tunker and Anders Bertilsson for filling in for Peter Östlund on these two shows!"
Peter Östlund, the guitarist of Swedish death metal outfit Vomitory, will sit out three shows in the month of May, June and July. The band reports: "Due to family commitments, lead guitarist Peter Östlund will sit out on some of the upcoming shows. So therefore, we have recruited our dear friends Danny Tunker (ex-God Dethroned, ex-Prostitute Disfigurement) and Anders Bertilsson (Coldworker) to step in for Peter. All other confirmed shows will be done with the ordinary Vomitory line-up."
"Regorge In The Morgue", a brand-new track from Swedish death metallers Vomitory, has been made available for streaming over at this location.
"Regorge In The Morgue" comes off the band's upcoming new album Opus Mortis VIII, which will be released on April 25th in Europe and on April 26th in North America through Metal Blade Records. More album details were previously reported over here.
Swedish death metal band Vomitory have revealed the album artwork and tracklisting for their long-anticipated eighth studio album Opus Mortis VIII.
The new effort was produced, engineered and mixed by Rikard Löfgren in his own Leon music studios. Unsurprisingly the album "proves to be the best sounding Vomitory album ever!"
Opus Mortis VIII will be released on April 23rd/26th in Europe through Metal Blade Records. The limited first edition will be a Digipak featuring four exclusive bonus tracks. Those tracks are re-recorded versions of songs taken off the first two Vomitory albums.
Commented drummer Tobias Gustafsson (The Project Hate MCMXCIX, Torture Division): "Opus Mortis VIII is our eighth album (no shit!) - our eighth Opus of Death. And I dare to say that this is one of the strongest albums we've done, and it most certainly has the most powerful production we've ever had on any album, hands down. For the third time, we worked with Rikard Löfgren in his Leon Music Studios. We raised the bar quite a few notches in the studio - both production-wise and performance-wise, and we couldn't be happier with the result. We are not breaking new death metal ground with this album - that was never Vomitorys' mission - but Opus Mortis VIII offers diversity and dynamics that you haven't quite heard from Vomitory before. Still, this is a very intense and aggressive album in the true Vomitory tradition - all the essential signature details are there. Once you hear the opening track, "Regorge In The Morgue", you will need no further proof of that!"
Swedish death metallers Vomitory have finished the recordings for their anticipated new album, Opus Mortis VIII.
Comments the band: "On Sunday, December 19th, we completed the work on the eighth Vomitory album that we have entitled Opus Mortis VIII. It's our eighth musical work of death, so we think it's a very fitting title and we have some nice things going on artwork-wise for this one.
Producer and studio owner Rikard Löfgren has done a tremendous job to get the best sounding Vomitory album to date - no competition! We are so fucking happy with the result. The production is absolutely top-notch and the material offers diversity and dynamics that you haven't quite heard from Vomitory before. You will get 14 songs altogether and roughly 54 minutes playing time."
Swedish Death Metal monsters Vomitory have posted the first new song of their upcoming album "Carnage Euphoria", to be released on 8 May via Metal Blade Records. Click here to download (mp3) or here to stream "Serpents".
Swedish death metallers Vomitory have completed work on their seventh album, entilted "Carnage Euphoria", for a May 11 European release via Metal Blade Records (May 8 in Germany). The artwork of the album can be viewed here.
Commented drummer Tobias Gustafsson: "Carnage Euphoria" was a bit harder album to record than our predecessor, but damn, it was worth it! We are ridiculously happy with how the album turned out in the end! Engineer/producer Rikard Löfgren of Leon Music Studios did once again a killer job to get what we wanted for this album, and then some. Compared to our previous albums, "Carnage Euphoria" is a lot wider, warmer and more natural sounding-wise. But still, "Carnage Euphoria" runs you over like a steamroller, just as expected. The true Vomitoryelements are all in there, but there are also some more mid-paced groovy stuff that adds diversity to this album like never before. Even some ore melodic hooks that won't go unnoticed. Songs like "The Ravenous Dead" and "Great Deceiver" add fresh slices of flesh to the Vomitory slab, while "Rage Of Honour" and "Possessed" are rotting chunks of the relentless death metal Vomitory is known for."
On January 5th, 2009 Swedish Death Metal band Vomitory will enter Leon Music Studios in Karlstad/Sweden to begin recordings for their seventh (yet untitled) album. Studio owner Rikard Löfgren will once again engineer, partially produce, mix and master the new album like he did with its predecessor "Terrorize Brutalize Sodomize"!
The new album is scheduled for a May 2009 release through Metal Blade Records in Europe. The release date for the US and the rest of the world is not set yet.
"The upcoming European tour in September together with Incantation has unfortunately been cancelled. Incantation has been forced to cancel due to personal familiy issues, which leaves us with no headliner for the tour. Vomitory will still play a few of the planned shows (see dates below). We are of course very sorry for the cancellation, but the things that have happened are beyond anyone's control, which makes it impossible to fulfil this tour. We apologize to our fans and all the promotors involved. We are aiming for a full European tour next year after the release of our next album, which is planned for a May 2009 release."
Vomitory will still play these shows just as planned:
Vomitory will be hitting the road again for a European tour this coming September. Countries included in the tour are Denmark, Germany, France and the UK among others. Incantation will be the support band for the tour.
