"We're working on new songs for our next album at the moment"

That looks like it implies the material isn't even completed yet and they're ready to record it in two months? hmmmm

Yeh, maybe they're rushing a bit, but I'm still excited about this.

Even thoguh I quite liked the last album, I hope that this one will be better... Otherwise they should take a break indeed... And they should hire a keyboardist... Cause without keyboards they sound a bit hollow...

Time Unchained was horrifyingly bad. I hope they can rebound from that catastrophe.

Where the hell Wolves are gone? They said this one will be their best and most different effort. A new level. Well i believe this time thei'll be dead to me. I hope i am wrong...but...

Again where those wolves...
the riddle wants to be...

Wait, Catamenia is still called blackmetal?

Firstly, where the hell are the wolves? If you're going to ditch your mascot, at least get some interesting cover art instead of letting one of the bandmembers do it when he's hungover (that's what it looks like anyway).

Secondly, why is the Sentenced dude on the album, and on the first song? Looks like it will make a bumpy start to the album, to say the least.

Time Unchained takes some getting used to but I enjoyed a lot of it. I'm already pissed off with this one for some reason, not expecting too much.

I only listen to their debut and Chaos Born... The rest has been a disappointment for me, with VIII being their worst release. That shit was unbearable.

I'll approach this with caution. Listen-before-I-buy type of material (not that I'll be dishing out 20 bucks for VIII Part 2.

Let's just hope they will ditch the clean vocals this time. Those shitty pop-ish cleans utterly trashed the last album.

I like all the other albums very much but "VIII-The Time Unchained" sucks ass. I've never been able to listen to it.

Maybe the reason they want to release a new album so soon is to make us forget the mistake that the last album was. As much as I like this band, I'll listen to the album before buying it. And, if they use those crappy cleans again, I won't buy it.

The clean vocals were indeed shite....but if it was done properly I wouldnt have minded - gives another dimension to the music if done properly.
