Actually it's as simple and boring as "an interview", "a chat", "a questionnaire" etc. I must admit that I could've come up with a more imaginative title. We just always title interviews and chats as "interview" for some reason.

Be'lakor tour is our featured thingy on Metal Obsession, which means there's also a simple interview with George on there http://metalobsession.net/belakor-ge...osmas-14062009

Although people on here will probably already know everything there.

Definitely do it. They are SO much better recorded than live. Particularly their first album.

I believe it is mate! You guys have no idea how pleasing it is to see the old school fans enjoying Stone's Reach - incredibly satisfying Thanks for taking the time to review it Brendan.

Found a review here!
http://autothrall.blogspot.com/2009/...each-2009.html

Quote:
I haven't had much luck in hearing decent Australian melodeath these past years, in fact I can't ever remember a standout band of this sub-genre to emerge from that corner of the world. Be'lakor is out to change this, and Stone's Reach, their sophomore album, is both immersive and entertaining. I am reminded of a mix of Opeth's more exciting, progressive death moments and the veneer of Dark Tranquillity when listening to this. There are a few cases of the familiar and throwaway melodies, but these are vastly overshadowed by the overall quality of the release. This is also one of those albums you want to listen straight through, it's quite a moody journey.

"Venator" eases you into the somber skies of Be'lator's world with a tasteful, flowing acoustic intro, before lifting into the strong dual guitar work. One guitar is always counterbalancing the other with the proper string of chords, or plucky melody, and this persists throughout the album. George Kosmas has a brutal if average growl, but it's mixed just right and justfully anchors the sad dreaminess of the compositions. "From Scythe to Sceptre" opens with a big, beautiful string of melodies, almost like a stone monument being built through the grace of its guitars. If you like anything in the 21st century Dark Tranquillity discography, you will enjoy this. "Outlive the Hand" has some nice progressive death flourishes, the pianos well integrated with the chords. "Sun's Delusion" is simply glorious, the dual guitars once again impress with their constant, busy companionship. Other strong moments on the album are the angelic acoustic instrumental "Husks" and the epic, sweltering "Countless Skies" with its memorable melodies.

There are few if any flaws to this album. The production is fantastic, all vocals and instrumentation fit perfectly across all tracks, as a single one hour work the album is a travel worth undertaking. As mentioned earlier, some of the riffs and melodies may seem as if you've heard them a thousand times before, but they simply do not hinder the impressive whole of Stone's Reach. Be'lakor have crafted the very best melodic Australian death I have heard to date. The lyrics and titles are introspective and interesting, and the band sounds like they've been at this for a decade minimum.

Verdict: Win [8.5/10]

A few new reviews have gone up. Most of them aren't in English, so any aspiring French or German translators are welcome to have a shot! See top post.

"Cette série de chansons regorge de tout ce qui fait qu’on aime quelque chose comme le Melodic Death Metal : technicité sans faille, mélodies ŕ se taper la tęte contre les murs ("From Scythe to Sceptre", exemple assez fort des tendances progressives de Be’lakor), sens de la progressivité en musique, soin apporté au visuel, grand écart possible (la césure en clair de "Husks") et excroissances climatiques. Tout ne se fixe pas, en effet, dans la recherche d’agressivité chez Be’lakor, ni la dynamique."

Translation

"This series of songs contain what makes us love melodic death metal: faultless tecnique, melodies to bang your head against the wall and progressive feelings in the music are strongly manifested together with atmospheric elements. Everything doesn't revolve around seeking the aggressiveness nor the dinamique approach at Be'lakor Camp."

__________________________________________________ _________________

Let me say, I agree with most of that, but defining the band "progressive" is probably related to the lack of creativity this genre offers. Some so called "doom/death" bands like Slumber and In Mourning do sound closer to Be'lakor than In Flames and similar.

Thanks for that I tend to agree with you about the whole 'progressive' thing
, it seems to have evolved into meaning 'not generic', whereas it used to demand a higher standard of difference.

Well yes, verse bridge chorus, verse bridge chorus, chorus x2...and it gets really old, especially for those who have been listening to metal for over 2 decades. Be'lakor's complexity allows you to listen to a song 50 times and you barely get it in your system, and it takes a while before it gets out, especially when lyrics are not death, suicide, and so on
