08:10 - AngelofDeth you're right, a little weird to get used to but it works pretty dang well in that song. It needs to be stylized to metal rather than just sticking a weird 80s sax break down in the middle of a song
08:04 - AngelofDeth didnt know other bands were doing it too. Very strange. Ill check that out though
06:56 - hadriel Listen to Ihsahn's On the Shores and all of the doubts anyone would ever have about the sax being in metal will be squelched
05:28 - Unhealer It's because it's just awesome <3 It really fits metal.
05:13 - Zaphod Turisas, Whispered and Behemoth are just the ones that don't pull it off, there are plenty that do.
French metallers Blut Aus Nord have revealed a teaser trailer online for the band's new upcoming release 777 - Cosmosophy, which will be released in North America on October 9th and in rest of the world on September 21st. Teaser can be viewed below.
Debemur Morti Productions commented on the release: "The denouement. The calm after the storm (but, still, disquiet interrupts the serenity); when the floods have washed away the debris. The circle is closed. Haunting, dreamlike, an altered state has been achieved. All-knowing wisdom prevails. At one with all -- omniscient. Soaring, alive with insight, bursting with extra-ordinary energy. Almighty. At the centre of an infinite structure in perpetual deconstruction, 777 - Cosmosophy represents the instinctive manifestation of human and obsolete conception of Time. Where the light feeds the darkness, where every second is the Eternity and sounds the death knell - the monumental work of the eccentric soul gets lost in a deep echo... and this echo is the sublime Sound of the Universe.
A beautiful tragedy; a tragic beauty. Devastatingly restrained, the climactic movement in the monumental 777 trilogy represents the culmination of a rapturous evolutionary process. Arguably Blut Aus Nord's most - daring venture yet, the third and final chapter represents both the beginning and the end. Et le Chaos se tut..."
