23:23 - s_t_s hey not that I miss them so but fo you know where band Deathstars's gone ? Seem they vanished...
21:47 - Risto It's their own tongue-in-cheek description. The vocals tip it over to the avantgarde side I think.
19:55 - Moose Many thanks to whoever introduced me to Astronoid via the shoutbox the other day. Their new album, Air, is magnificent. I can even understand why some refer to their genre as "Dream Thrash".
19:12 - Opethian @Apothecary, I got to meet him when I saw them play at Denver this past January. Dude is down to earth and was a privilege to get to meet him and Dallas \M/
"Introspection", the brand new single from Ihsahn has debuted at GuitarWorld.com. Head over to that location to check it out. The song also features guest vocals from Devin Townsend and comes off Ihsahn's upcoming album entitled Eremita, which will be released on June 18th in Europe and June 19th in North America via Candlelight Records. More details about the album were previously reported here.
I haven't been bothering with Ihsahn's solo stuff - it's too progressive for me... but this song sounds pretty nice with Devin in there too. Good things seem to always come when these two work together.
It has Ihsahnic elements as always...
Screams which has a kind of gravel in it and it's not that clean and straight,
clean arpeggios with a little distortion added and smooth melodies along the way
plus a mixture of vocals in the main conclusion.
Overall, it's an average one IMO; neither the best, nor the worst.
