16:42 - Risto Interesting metal shows are getting more and more scarce here. No Teatria and Nuclear Nightclub is closing down this weekend :(
16:27 - Bad English Erik - I attend what I can in Luleå , dont trevel, it costs so ... but ned ppl damn ude 1h in train you're in Brussels or somewhere in Germany , ok 2h
16:23 - Erik M. I think more variety is definitely a good thing, so most doom subgenres would be nice (death/gothic/epic/funer al). Edgar, I don't attend live gigs often. Last time is already 6 months ago or so. Only when it's close to Tilburg...
16:22 - Bad English Erik I didnt know you attend live gigs , so you saw Marcel and other mates
16:20 - Erik M. Ah that would be a real shame. I haven't been to the first DDD but the last one was my least favourite, I have to say. Then again, the first time (2012) I only saw like 3 bands due to damn train delays (well, mainly :P).
More news arrives today from Sweden as Evergrey unveil the cover artwork for their upcoming album Hymns For The Broken. They further announced that August 15th will mark the premiere of their new single and video entitled "King Of Errors". Those of you who are eager for a taste of what is to come, please direct your attention to the one-minute snippet here below. And check out the album cover too.
It's been three years since the release of Evergrey's last album Glorious Collision (2011). After signing with AFM records earlier this year, the band announced they would be releasing their ninth album before the end of the year. They entered the studio at the dawn of April and with production just about wrapped up, the announcement has arrived in the form of a 55 second video. The title of the new album is Hymns For The Broken and it will be released on September 26th!
Jon Oliva, the mastermind behind Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Doctor Butcher and Jon Oliva's Pain, announced late last year that he would release his very first solo album in 2013 via AFM Records. More news has emerged, announcing that the album is called Raise The Curtain and will be released on June 5th.
And the plot thickens... Arjen Lucassen, prog demi-god, kindly let us know in a funny video last October that he had started work on a new Ayreon album to be released in 2013. While the guest musicians are still unknown, it was revealed today that the new album will be entitled The Theory Of Everything, following 01011001.
