16:28 - Dima seems like an opportune time to link this [link]
16:20 - IronAngel If I were to describe her stuff, I'd probably say something like "psychedelic, drony rock with some gothic flair and the occasional metal-tinged riff." Or something.
16:19 - !J.O.O.E.! Lots of what's called hardcore, and also metalcore, is probably better described as being metal. I think people hear certain kinds of vocals and call it hardcore. Plenty of hardcore is punk based though.
16:17 - Kuroboshi One thing I've never understood is the distinction between metal and hardcore. Also, metal and grunge. It sounds to me like they're all part of metal. :P
Last December, it was revealed that Norwegian black metallers Ancient were working on their seventh album to finally follow Night Visit (2004). Recently, the band updated on that. Their comeback album is being recorded and will be called Chapter VII: Back From The Land Of The Dead, for a release around September.
Nick Barker recorded the drums for the CD at Alpha-Omega Studio in Como, Italy, and the guitars are in the process of being laid down right now. Founder and frontman Zel (a.k.a. Aphazel) will record vocals with Jacob Hansen (who also produced the Proxima Centauri album from 2001) in Denmark.
One song on the album will feature guest vocals by Martyr Lucifer of Hortus Animae and Martyr Lucifer. The master is expected to be ready in May.
