18:03 - !J.O.O.E.! Is the last one similar style? Am on my second play of the new one, and it's currently the joint second best thing I've heard this year, though it could end up on top. Its quality is through the roof.
17:59 - togo95 yup, already the previous record by Pogavranjen was great and this one is even better.

"Under It And Over It", a brand-new track from US groove metallers Five Finger Death Punch has been made available for streaming over at Revolver Magazine.
Commented FFDP vocalist Ivan Moody: "This one is about the rumors and gossip that go on everywhere - especially online. It's comical to see how much crazy, ill-informed shit people will post as news and when they're trolling around message boards. In today's day and age, speculation and bad info can just fly around the internet and catch fire - even when it's completely false and unfounded. Funny shit."

Matthew "Blaps Warmonger" Hall, lead singer of New Zealand death metal band Backyard Burial, was murdered earlier this week.
A massive police hunt has been launched for the killer of a man who was the victim of a "ferocious" stabbing attack at his Wellington home. The body of Matthew John Hall, 35, was found in his Johnsonville flat about 6.15pm on Tuesday.
Police said that an autopsy showed he died of multiple stab wounds following a "ferocious" attack while he was in bed.
Tributes to Mr Hall have been left on the band's Facebook page, with one saying he was "head brewer, scholar, vocalist and best friend to many".
Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Thornton said he had "no doubt" someone had seen a person or people either enter or leave Mr Hall's property and called for any witnesses to come forward. Police were in the early stages of their enquiries and spent much of today speaking to Mr Hall's friends, family and associates, Mr Thornton said. He added: "As part of the investigation we have profiled Matthew's background, where he worked, all his friends and associates and we are taking that into consideration."
