Upcoming Attractions

2010 is shaping up to be a year with a lot of great bands releasing new material. Here is a list of what I'm looking forward to.

1. Tarja's What Lies Beneath. Release date for North America: August, apparently.

2. Sabaton's Coat of Arms. North American release date: June 29, according to Amazon.ca. I have pre-ordered it!

3. Crimfall, title unknown. This CD is slated to be released in the fall, and I can't wait.

4. Visions of Atlantis, title unknown. Their web site is down & I can't find any recent news, but I have heard that they are in the studio recording and that something might be released this year.

5. Evanescence, title unknown. North American release date: sometime in the fall.

6. Amberian Dawn, title unknown. In an interview published May 19, the band said the new album was in the mixing stage. The band's site doesn't mention anything about a release date, though, but I hope it's soon!

7. Within Temptation & Delain are apparently releasing new material this year, but I can't find anything on either of their sites about this.

8. Borealis, previously posted about here. Title unknown, North American release date: early fall.

9. Liv Kristine, Skintight. North American Release date: August 31! Woo-hoo!

10. Midnattsol, title unknown. Release date unknown, but they are recording this summer. Really looking forward to this CD, too!

Nice list. Looking forward to 5 of them. [Tarja, Amberian Dawn, WT, Delain, and VOA)

BTW: Delain has announced it on their news site. They talk about it, for example, under gig newsupdate =P And ofcourse on their forum.

Anyway, nice list :D

Sorcha: Thanks for pointing that out! I had visiteed the site but I guess the news didn't have its own headline so I just missed the info!

Oh well...if only I were a fan of any of those bands! LOL! Glad you're excited, though!

Magica also has a new CD coming out this year entitled "Dark Diary."

Well got word from Antony Hamalainen about the new title tracks for the 5th Nightrage album, Poisoned Pawn, Delirium Of The Fallen and The Utmost End Of Pain.

I thought I'd already posted this, but anyway:

Of those bands, at least Dragonland (and perhaps Amaranthe) might be your cup of tea, Canuck.

Hairul sent me links to Amaranthe on FB and I didn't care for them too much.

BTW, both Liv Kristine and Tarja's albums release dates have been pushed back. :(
