23:05 - Erik M. None of the songs on PC come close to this brilliance: [link] Best song hand down from Damnation.
23:03 - Opethian @Erick M, Yes. It has that vibe that i actual want to listen to and wish that there was more ;)
23:01 - Erik M. Actually now that I listen to Faith in Others again, I just realized it actually has a Damnation vibe going on... am I right?
22:59 - Erik M. Ilham, that's just because of Pale Communion. Before that, Opeth almost never got mentioned here. ;) Opethian, true enough! Definitely what I think as well. If he doesn't care about that, then he's an arrogant bastard.
22:56 - Opethian If i could say something to Mikael, "I hope that this shift in sound and retro style has made you a happy person, because you have lost a lot of fans over it"
22:56 - Ilham I should make a list of the days I haven't seen Opeth mentioned in the shoutbox. It would be a short list.
German power metallers Helloween have broken the silence and announced that they have just entered the studio to work on their new album, which they plan to release in the beginning of 2013.
The band issued the following statement on their official website: "Watch out for news and reports from the studio as the Helloween-machine is on a roll again.... The recordings for the 7 Sinners - follow-up will be running until the end of 2012 with a release being looked at in the beginning of 2013."
Says guitarist Michael Weikath: "Right now we are busy with finalizing the songwriting process and are getting ready to take the accumulated ideas into a final selection for the new record. Everybody in the band is excited and eager to take what we have worked on so far to the next level."
"The new production will again be helmed by long-term producer Charlie Bauerfeind and will of course contain all the trademarks. Already in this early stage the new effort promises to be much more than a fine follow-up to the highly acclaimed Gambling With The Devil - and 7 Sinners - albums. Bombastic epic pieces have been worked on as well as ultrafast heavy songs and mid-tempo anthems. After the major 7 Sinners world tour and a well deserved break the boys have just entered the studio to work on their new studio album."
"Bombastic epic pieces have been worked on"..i like that cos till now epic songs was rerserved for Keeper albums and as we know they wont do anymore Keeper albums so this is great news Just hoping that Sascha and Weiki will be more inspired on solo parts!
