04:50 - The Maratha Also, black powerfully blending with genres of death, drone, psychedelic, doom, sludge and so on. More or less, this past 2 years there has been a trend of experimentation in metal altogether.
04:44 - The Maratha The problem is that Sludge creepingly blends into heavy, doom, black and death. Look at Roadburn for instance.
03:24 - Marcel Hubregtse SLudge is actually already dead since most bands in that genre are copying each other . Savannah SLudge is doing it and so are the others. If you hear mrore than 6 new sludge bands each months you will notice it.
02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong
02:17 - Apothecary I still think sludge is far from "the next big trend" lol, that's grossly over-exaggerating its appeal to the average metalhead. More people are into thrash, death, and symphonic type shit before sludge, at least in my area
02:14 - Karlabos yeah, sludge seems to be quite the thing nowadays. still beats the power metal trend from when i was a kid tho
Finnish ambient melancholic metal band October Falls unveiled new details regarding their forthcoming album The Plague Of A Coming Age. The album will be unleashed this coming March 15th, on both CD and vinyl format and is already available for pre-order at this location. Check out also the full tracklist and artwork of the album below.
Of course this is not all. The band is also streaming a brand new song "Snakes Of The Old World", which you can listen through the Soundclud player below the album artwork and tracklist.
Official press release by Debemur Morti Productions: "On this new offering, the band continues to explore its exquisitely sonorous world, deeply melancholic, subtly aggressive and always divinely melodic. Once again, M. Lehto gathered gifted musicians around him for the recording: M. Tarvonen (Moonsorrow) on drums and S. Hinkka (Ensiferum) on bass. A very special guest contributed clean vocals on two songs: T. Joutsen (Amorphis). The visual art was imagined and painted by talented Argentinian Artist Santiago Caruso."
The Plague Of A Coming Age tracklist:
01. At The Edge Of An Empty Horizon
03. The Verge Of Oblivion
04. Snakes Of The Old World
05. The Plague Of A Coming Age
06. Mouth Of A Nation's Harlots
07. Boiling Heart Of The North
08. The Weight Of The Fallen

Well, sounds like October Falls but certainly not their best effort. No real progression in style despite taking quite some time since their last record. And why does there have to be that stupid guy on the cover
