A few snippets of news have come to my attention I thought I would share here.
has described the music in the new album as "probably the heaviest we have ever written. But then we have some cool songs with a dark, 'old-school' vibe, and then some other rocking songs which are a bit more modern and anthemic sounding." I'm curious, of course, but I was so disappointed with Shallow Life I'm not sure I can move on. But I'm open-minded!
Dawn of Destiny, is teasing fans like me on Facebook with hints about a new album, being very coy about a release date. Apparently, from what I can glean, it'll be out sometime late this year. It'll be their first album with new vocalist Jeanette Scherff, who, I have to say, I haven't been really fond of when viewing live performances the band's had with her since she joined. Again, I remain open-minded! We shall see.
3. Evanescence finally will be releasing a new CD, self-titled, also on Oct. 4. It's about time!
4. Nightwish has been confirmed for the 70000 Tons of Metal Cruise, which takes place Jan. 23 - 27 and will sail around the Caribbean. The cost is $666 and includes meals and non-alcoholic beverages. Other confirmed acts are Amorphis, Tristania, Eluveitie, Therion, and Stratovarius. This sounds like an awesome event!
