21:21 - !J.O.O.E.! I'm usually bored by doom that pace but it sounded almost like early Emperor doing doom.
21:20 - Apothecary I dunno, I guess I've just been spoiled too much by ROB and Elysian Blaze :p
21:20 - Apothecary The first one just really bored me tbh, though those almost Monarch-like choirs in the background were cool. I just prefer blackened doom to be a bit more... balanced, I guess, and not ALL slow tempo
21:13 - !J.O.O.E.! I dunno, I like the sound of all 4 of their tracks (less so the third one but it's still good)
20:58 - Apothecary So a friend rec'd this Old Witch band to me the other day, and I'm listening to their split with Keeper. Not bad, but I wish more of the music sounded like that second track here, that's really the style I prefer
20:47 - !J.O.O.E.! Heard a bit of that the other day. Not my thing really but quite well done and it seems to chop and change styles on a whim, but still make it work.
Soulfly bassist Bobby Burns has issued the following update:
"Stoppin' by for a quick second to say hello! Its been a real busy year for us and as I write this we're all finally back home in our collective home cities relaxing and packing up to head into the studio in L.A. this Friday to begin recording the new Soulfly record! We've been playing together better than ever in recent times and we're all really excited to get to work on the new shit! I've been 'thinking' about doing some sort of video diary on my mac from the studio sessions to kinda keep everyone in the loop and possibly post them up like once a week on my MySpace page but I have yet to make up my mind. Other than that. Talks of more touring in the new year but I'm not sure yet.
My wife Joy and I are expecting our first baby, a son due February 4th! Ryder Lee Burns is his name and I'm so fucking excited / scared / nervous I can barely stand it! He'll be a little rocker for sure! He's already been to 3 Primer 55 shows and five Soulfly shows and he's not even here yet! Needless to say I'll be taking the month of Febuary off to be at home with him and my wife. So I hope I won't be missing any of the Soulfly tours but what can ya do...
That's that in a nutshell.
In the studio with Soulfly this month, Primer 55 on tour December through January, meeting my son Ryder for the first time February 4th!
I'm not very familiar with this band, but best of luck to them with this album. By the way, congratulations to Bobby Burns and his wife for the parenthood. I hope they have a good long life with the son.
