02:11 - Apothecary I do still probably prefer Emptiness, but it's nonetheless a great album in my book. Surprisingly groovy too. But you're probably right, I don't see anything touching the particular atmosphere of NBTW for a while
01:33 - !J.O.O.E.! Not in even in the same league if you ask me. That Emptiness record is pretty much a one off. That Desolate Shrine stuff is a dime a dozen quite frankly.
01:11 - Zaphod I've heard it but that's not even coming close in my book.
00:57 - Apothecary Dunno Zaph, that Desolate Shrine album is giving Emptiness a run for its money. You heard yet?
Long time no see Vanden Plas. Three years have passed since the release of The Seraphic Clockwork, the band's latest album, and today there's finally some news about what's next for the power/prog metallers. Be prepared for a new Vanden Plas album next year, more precisely in January. The band has been recording new material and preparing the new release.
Band update: "First of all - sorry for the long time without some V.P. news. After we finally finished the new album (release January 14), Andy played - berger in 'hair' - in 21 sold out shows 42.000 people were watching in Augsburg a very unique stageplay on one of the most beautiful outdoor stages in Europe. During this time the rest of the band were playing very successful 'aida' in Kaiserslautern. And now - we slowly want to work off all the news for you. Be prepared for many many upcoming Vanden Plas facts during the next months. All the best to all our friends out there - and we hope you had a very great summer!"
