I hate seeing the word “metallers” on other Web sites.
When did it become acceptable to use this word to describe bands? I am seeing it in press releases now, which just means some label folks be lazy. Whoever started this trend needs to have their colon punctured with a mailbox post, riddled with rusty, mostly-protruding nails.
Swedish epic doom metal band Below are currently hold up at Sonic Train Studios in Varberg, Sweden, working with King Diamond guitarist Andy La Rocque recording their Metal Blade Records debut.
Below actually cite King Diamond as an influence, so this must be a special thrill for them.
Says La Rocque: “This is one of the heaviest bands I have worked with in the studio for a very long time, and the sounds so far is amazing! And always great to work with great musicians!”
A glowing endorsement, no?
Look for the band’s album to drop in 2014, at some point. I’m thinking somewhere towards the middle.
