Wow... This comes unexpected. It'll be surely one of my favourites of this year! And wonderful cover art, btw.

I also can't see how this will dissapoint. Then again this is possibly the most hyped thing in the history of my music taste. The promise of more music dedicated to Blut aus Nord's industrial style ala, Thematic et al is almost too much to bear.

What a bloody artwork! If there ever was an epicly esoteric piece of art embracing the cover of an album, this has to be it.

So it's going to be more industrial, less atmospheric black metal? I wanted a continuation of Memoria Vetusta!

Nope =P from what I've read it'll be very industrial orientated. I think I read it'll be more of a continuation of the the sound from The Work... record but I have a feeling with a more pronounced industrial tone like Thematic.

I personally hope they never release anything like MV:II again, sorry. It's a pleasing listen but it's outdated and way beneath the Nord's creative and experimental abilities. They're best when they're fucking with people's minds.

On different note I love the cover art but I don't like the religious iconography. It's an area I hope BaN never tackle with too much seriousness, I'd rather they stick to more esoteric themes and leave all that crap to Deathspell and the thousands of others. Maybe I'm just seeing a cross and making too much from it. I suppose they mention God quite a few times in their song and album titles though...

Hm, I don't think I'll get my hopes up for this if that's the case. I find their industrial moments utterly boring and almost completely off-putting, in a way that makes me just sit and stare at my Zune and think...they're actually happy with this?

But obviously this is just a matter of differing opinions - I like their atmospheric black metal, you like their industrial work. I don't think the band could care less about either of our personal tastes - they'll just write whatever the fuck they want.

Yep, they're great at both sides, just their darker side appeals to me more because it's quite unique. Anyway the description of the new one is as follows:

777 - Sects(s) is an organic, cascading volume of deviant, dark art that exhibits Blut Aus Nord's natural habitat, a cleansing blade amid transitory moments of non-importance. Hypnotic guitars, discomforting beats and alienating voices clash with the ferocity of aural tectonic plates to produce horrific Black Metal decadence for an anonymous, lost, irrelevant generation.

Make of that what you will =3

Actually it's probably the most pretentious description of anything ever.

Hey wait a minute, you're right. There are three new forthcoming releases (Sept(s), The Desanctification, Cosmosophy) in the database. Am I going to have a triple orgasm then?

A new one on the way already when it only feels like yesterday they released there one, it already seems like they're going in a different direction sound wise if the artwork and titles are anything to go by but we'll see.
