22:59 - !J.O.O.E.! Interesting. BTC draws a lot of influence from Mexican culture (might be some bands from there too). Will have to look into that movement / scene.
22:58 - 3rdWorld @Red Maybe the ones who can write a solid record I guess instead of writing a good opener and then stuffing the rest of the album with fillers.
22:57 - moonflash Apparently this underground black metal circle buisness is a thing, I discovered a similar label from Mexico, need to look into it further though. [link]
22:53 - Redn1ght How does anyone dare to release an album with shitty songs at the start staring at your face? :p
22:52 - !J.O.O.E.! Btw, I usually update this thread whenever something new from the group pops up [link]
22:49 - !J.O.O.E.! Yeah as comps go it's one of the best I've heard. The first 3 tracks aren't great but the rest are gold.
22:49 - 3rdWorld @Joe That seems to be a really interesting comp from Crepusculo negro. Of course I should've seen it coming, its the label that Arizmenda is on. Browsing music through labels is really fun.
The new album of the Italian band Secret Sphere, titled Archetype will contain 10 tracks. Some track titles are: Mr. Sin, All In A Moment and The Scars That You Can't See. Two special guest will appear, Trevor from Sadist and Alessandro Conti from Trick Or Treat.
Heavenly guitarist Charley Corbiaux has announced that, unfortunately Thomas Das Neves has decided to leave the band. "We wish him the best for the future and keep in mind all the good work he has done for Heavenly. Thank you bro' and good luck. But now it's time for good news, my friends. Heavenly is proud to present you our new drummer. He's fast, he's loud, he's crazy and his name is Pierre-Emmanuel "Piwee" Desfray (ex-Fairyland).
And you must also know that the new album is almost finished. The great Philip Colodetti is working very hard at this time. Surrounded by his machines, sweating and screaming, he's processing to the mix and the master of Carpe Diem."
Samples of the new upcoming album "Sweet Blood Theory" by Italian Power metallers Secret Sphere have been made available at this location (Flash Player required).
The album was recorded during December '07 and February '08 at Authoma Studios by Federico Pennazzato, and mixed in March '08 by Achim Koehler (Producer for Primal Fear, Brainstorm ,etc..) in Germany at Indiscreet Audio.
"Sweet Blood Theory" is a concept album based on the novel "The Vampire" written by John William Polidori in 1814 and is regarded as one of the early novels with a vampire character, by some even as the very first.
To embrace the concept and create the music for this fantasy epic, the band took inspiration from the famous movie director Tim Burton ("Nightmare Before Christmas", "The Corpse Bride", "Edward Scissorhand" etc), trying to re-create the typical atmospheres of his most famous movies in both the orchestral score (reminiscent of that of Danny Elfman, who did the music for the aforementioned Tim Burton movies) and for the artwork.
