01:44 - moonflash Thanks Jooe, I shall listen to it right after I'm finished with the Jesus the Jew. I had heard a few songs here and there but silly me never paid them the attention they deserve. That will be changing now for sure !
01:44 - Apothecary The early demos are great as well, it's really interesting to see how the band has evolved. Again, I wouldn't really say any era is better than another, even early on they were always interesting
01:42 - Apothecary By the way, you really might wanna check out Metatron's essays explaining his lyrical inspiration. He's unfortunately only done them for TMOJTJ and Sonderkommando, but still, highly enlightening
01:40 - !J.O.O.E.! I highly recommend this record too: [link] joint fave along with the Jesus murdering one.
01:40 - Apothecary We're always looking for new recruits :D
01:38 - moonflash It's too divine dude. I can see the obsession coming, got a free spot in the fanboy club? :P
01:37 - Apothecary Indeed an awesome band and there's really no bad release by them, each is superb in its own distinct way. TMOJTJ is often hailed as their best, and with good reason, Damascus Steel is my personal favorite though
Dutch atmospheric rockers The Gathering have announced on their official website that they are still working on their new album but have now set September as its release date.
The band posted this short update: "We are still working on the new record. We will release a new single in May, the album will be released in September. More info as soon as possible! In the meantime you still can listen to "Heroes For Ghosts", our 11 minute opus magnus which will be on the new album as well! And it is still possible to download it for free at http://thegathering.bandcamp.com."
Wonderful... Just wonderful! I love this band and I hope this next release is going to be an even better showcase of their songwriting and Silje's vocals. I'm not expecting any miracles but a guest appearance by Anneke would make my day.
