12:43 - Zaphod Well, any other country than my own would be an amazing opportunity if I ever decide to start a band, I was just giving it as an example because that's where Jari's from.
12:39 - Redn1ght Zap, Finland isn't that great apparently for touring bands.. (They seem to avoid it like a plague tormented country...)
12:31 - Zaphod Yeah, the comments on that guy's long post are also pretty entertaining.
12:30 - MelancholiaC Just curious, if he indeed turns his fanbase into a charity service, how is that any more ethically honest than "those greedy bloodsucking record companies"? (and I doubt Nuclear Blast can really be called one...)
12:26 - MelancholiaC I see that in the fb comments one guy in particular has called him out on it in a long response. Most people just want to throw their money at him through paypal...
Finnish melodic death/doom metal band Swallow The Sun are currently in the studio recording their next album, the follow-up to the 2009 release New Moon.
The band has issued the following statement on their official website: "During the well deserved break we took from shows this year we've been preparing new music, and now we are happy to announce that we have entered Drumforest Studios at Viitasaari to record our fifth full length album, which will be released February 1st 2012 by Spinefarm Records."
"Drumforest Studios is an atmospheric studio built in an old school middle of Finland in Viitasaari. It's the perfect environment for the legendary sound engineer Mikko Karmila to capture our signature sound. Mikko is well known in the metal world for his work with such names as Nightwish, Sentenced, Amorphis and Children Of Bodom, just to name a few, and we're very happy to work with him."
