23:14 - Apothecary Pretty much lol, and I mean think of where sludge originated too: New Orleans. That's really all that needs to be said
23:10 - no one i think the raw ugly drunk rasping vocals suits the genre just fine, it's meant for rowdy drunk metal heads anyway isn't it?
23:07 - Apothecary So, uh, new Plebeian Grandstand is awesome? Especially this track [link] , sounds like some fucking evil "blackened drone" or something
23:00 - Karlabos Indeed. i don't get why is it commom sense that sludge singers must all sound like a drunk bad thrash wannabe vocalist. the only bands i like on the genre are the ones with vocals as far away as that as possible
22:48 - TrueMetalJope IMO it's rather: typical sludge vocals < all other vocals : -)
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.
