08:29 - Unhealer First use of sax in metal I can think of is on Pan.Thy.Monium albums. It had to be Swano.
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.
Scottish metallers Falloch have announced that they have finalised the line up for their next album. The band welcomes Tony Dunn as the new vocalist and guitarist, which means that the new line up is now completed and ready to work on the band's second full length release, after their critically acclaimed debut Where Distant Spirits Remain in 2011.
The band stated: "We're very pleased to announce that we have finalised our line up for the next album. Taking over the vocals and second guitar position will be Tony Dunn. We are currently finishing off the writing for the second album and are planning to record it over the summer. Our first show with Tony will be at Stereo in Glasgow on Friday the 26th of April. We will be playing a couple more live shows before we start recording, more info about those will follow soon."
Good news flowing from Scotland: "We're also nearing completion of our new album. A few tracking sessions left and then mixing and mastering in February!" (Official fb page, 14.01.2014). Finally something is happening here.
