02:37 - !J.O.O.E.! Hey ZÖN, I found your stuff last week actually, really nice, especially with headphones.
02:00 - mz also, I have not heard your music yet, but experimental/ drone/ dark ambient fits my taste prefectly.
01:56 - mz on a serious note, the majority of active users are into black, death, doom and sludge it seems.
01:54 - ZÖN Are there any interested in blackened power metal though. I can get on board with that
01:52 - mz @ zon: welcome to the MS. We have a nice comunity of small number of people who are active, and the atmosphere here is much more civilized than MA+ there are not many active users interested in power metal, which is very good :D
01:38 - Maco Call me Maco Trunk. Don't tell it to my man Karl.
01:35 - Maco I'm like Eddie Trunk, main difference is that I don't believe good music died in the 90's.
The Finnish folk metallers Ensiferum have partnered up with Spotify to bring fans their new album One Man Army in its entirety. In celebration of their upcoming release, now less than two weeks away, the band has teamed up with Spotfiy for a stream of the record.

Six days away from release of Slipknot's upcoming album .5: The Gray Chapter, the band has been releasing other new songs for streaming. The song called "Sarcastrophe" might feel like a trip back to the roots of Slipknot. Enjoy it here below!

We haven't heard much lately from the Umeå based trio but here's something that will most likely make the Zonaria fans happy. They are currently in the studio working on the pre-production for their new upcoming album that is yet to be named, recorded and sealed. We can only speculate about the release date but hopefully it'll be soon.
There's finally some news addressing the future release(s) from Wintersun. Even if we don't get a date, mastermind Jari Mäenpää felt the need to at least talk about some of the reasons why there's no release date confirmed for Time II now but the initial plan was to release it in early 2014. Time I was released back in 2012, of course.
Satariel have come back from the dead to release 3 new songs from their upcoming new release White Ink. The reason why they only release 3 songs right now, in digital form only, is the lack of time and big distances between band members. Still they managed to produce these 3 songs and we are promised more is to come. You can listen to the new songs by heading over to their Bandcamp page.
Finns Ensiferum have just released a brand new video today for the song "In My Sword I Trust", which was directed by Rafal Szermanowicz. The song will appear on the upcoming release Unsung Heroes, which hits stores on August 27th through Spinefarm Records. The new video for the song "In My Sword I Trust" can be watched below and you can get all the details about the video here.
French masters of modern dissonant Thrash Scarve have posted a new song, entitled 'Endangered', on their MySpace page. The track comes off of the band's upcoming album, "The Undercurrent", which will be released this April through Listenable Records.
This album marks a grandiose return of the band marking them as pioneers and way ahead of their time. Beyond any doubt the most sophisticated, intricate, unconventional Scarve recording to date. Scarve will impress and annihilate both friend and foe!
Drummer Dirk Verbeuren commented: "Our darkest and most brutal release yet. Developing the sound of "Irradiant" to a more devastating level".
Here's the tracklisting for "The Undercurrent" again:
