|Want to find out current and upcoming releases
that you should know about? We will randomly update these when
we see something worthy of noting. Some of these will have links
to web sites where you can take a listen to future releases
or at least find out more about the band and release. Release
dates are in parenthesis.
May/June, 2008 Update:
Opeth - "Watershed"
(6-3-08): "As if the world could possibly wait- but I doubt
it. Opeths' 9th studio release is due out in June thru Roadrunner
Records. This newest offering will feature the debut's of new
drummer, Martin Axenrot (also with Bloodbath and Witchery) and
new guitarist, Fredrik Åkesson (formerly of Arch Enemy
and Tiamat). Watershed features 7 tracks, a near-hour following.
There is also a limited edition release around the same time
that will feature 3 covers. Prepare yourselves..." www.opeth.com
Ihsahn - "angL"
(5-26-08): "Renowned as the voice of Emperor, a black metal
legend, Ihsahn spews forth his 2nd solo album. The new album,
angL, is just over 45 minutes in length and will have 9 tracks
total. Guests on this release are Lars Norberg (from Spiral
Architect and Satyricon) who plays the bass on the whole disc
and Mikael Åkerfeldt (Opeth and Bloodbath) who sings on
"Unhealer". This is to be an exciting progression
from the 1st release!" www.ihsahn.com
Mourning Beloveth - "A
Disease For The Ages" (5-13-08): "Germany's Prophecy
Productions will be handling the release of Mourning Beloveths'
4th album as of May 13th. There are 5 tracks set forth along
the way of almost an hour of epic Doom metal. Meaning.... about
10 to 12 minutes average / song. If some of you readers are
new to this band, think older My Dying Bride with a more guttural,
aggressive attack. From Ireland, this is Mourning Beloveth!"
Stormlord - "Mare Nostrum"
(5-23-08): "Perhaps the greatest black metal band from
Italy, the Stormlord returns on the 23rd of May. Album #4 is
described as a collaboration from their 1st 2 releases and will
feature 9 total tracks. A label called Locomotive Records will
be issuing this release. It's entirely up to you, but in my
honest opinion, Stormlord should not be ignored by any extreme
metal fan!! Check them out on their myspace page..." www.myspace.com/stormlordband
Moonspell - "Night Eternal"
(6-10-08): "Portugals' dark metal lords are set to release
their 8th album or 9th if you include the re-recording of their
early works released just last year. This album is presumably
darker, but a nice counter to their successful Memorial album.
There are hints of pretty much everything from their past works
and some previously untouched horizons as well. Expect a US
release on June 10th and a European release in mid-May. 45 minutes,
9 tracks total..." www.moonspell.com
