20:28 - !J.O.O.E.! Maybe find a big hardcover book or something like that to put it on.
20:27 - Karlabos Sounds nice. Yeah because of the heat I can't use laptop on my lap like it was supposed to.. Unfortunately it's the only position where yo don't get a sore arm/neck/whatever when using
20:24 - !J.O.O.E.! Lel maybe. I don't like regular laptops personally as they're heavy and get hot easily. I own a little one that weighs less than a kilo and doesn't emit heat. Great for long journeys as the battery lasts for ages.
20:22 - Karlabos Wait, this means I'm gonna have to buy a new one?
20:22 - Maratha Not yet a review of new Bölzer in the upper section?
20:15 - !J.O.O.E.! Don't use a laptop covered in snakes and glass?
20:14 - Karlabos How can I use laptop in bed without feeling pain in anywhere on my body?
Job For A Cowboy are currently putting the finishing touches on the pre-production demos for their next full-length album.
Commenting on the new material, the band recently had the following to say: "Don't worry, we aren't going to throw a nu-metal curve ball. Also, we are going to have an 8 minute instrumental track of just 'bree's' to make all the younger kids shutup."
A tentative spring 2012 release through Metal Blade Records is expected. Job For A Cowboy's latest EP Gloom was released earlier this year in June.
After weeks of rumors, The Human Abstract have now parted ways with vocalist Travis Richter. Reasons for his departure remain unclear.
His temporary replacement for the upcoming Frak The Gods Tour featuring Periphery, Textures and The Contortionist will be Ryan Devlin - current vocalist of San Diego progressive metal band Corelia. The Frak The Gods Tour takes place next week. Get all dates here.
Quoted Devlin: "I am very excited for the opportunity, and hope you will come see me on tour."
Richter apparently issued the following statement explaining his departure: "A couple months ago I told the guys I wasn't going to tour anymore for a couple reasons. One, I'm turning 30 and have given all my time to bands and the road, and I want to be able to start a family and see my parents and grandparents more. Secondly, I graduated with an audio production degree, and I feel myself being pulled into that world as more of a full time position. I think The Human Abstract is an amazingly gifted group of musicians with mind bending potential and I couldn't thank them enough for everything they've done for me since I joined the band in feb of 2010. The fans have also been more than amazing and accepted me into the THA family, and for that I sincerely thank you!"
Danish death metallers Dawn Of Demise have checked in with the following announcement about recruiting a new drummer:
"The new drummer in Dawn of Demise is 19 year-old Simon Blåbjerg. He's been with us since February 1st. We had 2 full days of auditions planned, but when Simon blew us away - as the last guy on day 1 - we decided to cancel the second day of auditions. So far we have written 6-7 new tracks with Simon, which all will be on our next full-length record.
In another attempt to please the fans, Dream Theater have released their fourth and fifth song previews off of their new album A Dramatic Turn Of Events. The song entitled "This Is The Life" can be previewed at this location, while "Beneath The Surface" can be viewed below.
