18:48 - Zaphod The Broken Empire has three books and they're short by fantasy standards. The main character is pretty interesting as he's kind of mad. I only read the first book though, and everyone besides the main character was pretty boring.
18:48 - PocketMetal Malazan series are the most detailed and the most huge fantasy books ever written , Steven Erikson is probably my favorite author.
18:44 - Fearmeister Malazan Book of the Fallen, 12 big books. Super epic ;)
18:42 - Redn1ght I'm fine with one to three books at maximum however...
18:39 - Zaphod 7 books, yes. Pretty long indeed. I haven't really read many standalone fantasy novels, though I'm planning on reading some since I'm sick of those long series. So I can't recommend much short works.
18:26 - Redn1ght Hmm... Dark Tower seems to have a lot of books. Those kinds of series take me forever to read.
US progressive metallers OSI have announced the details of their upcoming new album. Entitled Fire Make Thunder, it is slated for release on March 23rd in Europe and March 27th in North America via Metal Blade Records. You can check out an album sampler in the video below.
Written and recorded throughout most of 2011, Fire Make Thunder once again reflects the eclectic influences of both Matheos and Moore. Returning as the band's session drummer is Gavin Harrison of Porcupine Tree, this time co-writing one of the tracks with the band. All other instruments and programming were performed by both Matheos and Moore, while vocals and lyrics were handled exclusively by Moore.

All of the recording for Fire Make Thunder, with the exception of drums, was done by Moore and Matheos at each musician's respective home studio with drums being recorded at Harrison's home in London. Final overdubs as well as some additional writing/arranging were completed in July 2011 in Jamaica, Iowa, where the band mixed alongside engineer Matt Sepanic at Sound Farm Studio and Recording Environment. Mastering was handled by renowned engineer Roger Siebel. The record was produced by both Moore and Matheos.
Fire Make Thunder tracklist:
01. Cold Call
03. Indian Curse
04. Enemy Prayer
05. Wind Won't Howl
06. Big Chief II
07. For Nothing
08. Invisible Men
My feelingss exactly, but in my case a real boner
If they top Blood I will die. I don't think I haven't enjoy any of their releases.
It would be awesome if they toured for the new album atleast and then come to India
