    :p :lol:

    I'll definitely be installing the feed, but I haven't had the chance to get to my home computer since it's been set up.

    All the same, I'm definitely looking forward to samples and more details. Next year is shaping up to be an awesome year for metal releases. :headbang:

    Cold winter, recording into the chalet...
    The snow falling soothed by guitar harmonies,
    The white floor shaked by yanic double bass drum kicking and splitted by his cymbal attacks...

    it's just a few songs, not a whole album, with all the downloading crap going on I'm not sure what will happen with "albums" - especialy for bands like QV who self finance everything.

    This is a terrible reality :mad:
    The only way for a lot of bands is to be on the road and make gigs...

    If only youth (more and more young metal fans nevertheless) could stop downloading !

    I've recently discovered a way to attract them at gigs. In France, there are places called "MJC" (Maison de la Jeunesse et de la Culture) in lots of cities.
    And french bands are touring there in all the country. The place can gather 200-250 people, and every time I went at an MJC gig, it was full of teenagers.

    Even if young people download too much, they are future...
    I don't know if in other countries, there are some kind of MJC, but I found this way to promote interesting.

    You're right, perhaps getting your music out through iTunes is the way to go, lots of bands are doing it nowadays... they only thing is though, once you get your music out through iTunes it's bound to wind up on the web/Torrent sites etc... or just have it streamed through myspace and make some $$ from touring

    Will it be released as an EP then? I'll be glad to buy it regardless of format. :headbang:

    Bart, do you guys know what kind of direction the new material is heading in? I would love to hear more choral/string stuff like the interludes from Defiant Imagination (I would love to hear a more traditional QV song that included some of those elements, or even something similar to Sans Abris with Stephane's vox and female vox).

    yes, it's a problem =[

    In case I was born on anglo-saxon America or Europe... I'd buy all QV albums and the DVD + shirts

    but here in South America, it's hard and expensive to get it, I have the "Forever..." I bought it of other south-brazilian guy. I want to buy all original albums on 2008' winter(here in july)

    actually i'm pretty sure 99% of the downloading is happening in North America/Europe where DSL/cable internet is widely available... I was listening to this audio interview with Jon Shaffer from Iced Earth and he had a pretty good point - there seems to be some sort of disconnect with reality, people don't feel they're stealing by downloading and not buying the albums afterwards... i don't get it, if you're a real fan of a band and like their latest output, you'd buy it...

    downloading is a reality, it has both positive and negative effects I guess we'll see where things lead to in 5 years. At this point things are in flux and it will take a while before they reach an equilibrium. I think an objective discussion on this subject should include various points of view. Too often the discussion is too one sided.

    what's funny is that record labels/stores etc would rather lose money than lower their prices, they don't seem to get it somehow... I think if they kept prices at around the $9.99 mark they'd see a lot more sales... buying a CD at 25-30 bucks is quite ridiculous...
    on the other hand you have bands like Radiohead posting their new album up for free, which is more of a marketing trick on their behalf, imo... they know they can pull a big crowd when they tour anyways...

    The only time I will support downloading something is if it's otherwise unavailable (i.e. out of print, a demo and so on). Outside of that, if I like something I will buy it and then preferably straight from the band if that's an option.

    Hell, I think Gojira's debut ran me close to $30 with shipping and such. :headbang:

    i don't think you need to worry. the point will be made when a group of musicians is good (i don't like to use the term "band" to refer to good musicians). the ones who really like your stuff will BUY your stuff. afterall the arts was something to appreciate since the beginning, people voluntarily gave monetary value to the arts because it was worth it.

    sad truth is, music now is very different from the way it was intended to be, that's what i think. maybe that's the future, maybe the real practitioners of such arts need to adapt. you see every teenager jumping on the bandwagon, it's no longer what you want/love but what you think will let you have an "identity", which is more of pseudo identity.

    i downloaded the songs you guys put up on your website, and given the fact that you were pretty rare in my place at that time, it did take a while before i placed my orders. and i will admit i got 2 or 3 other songs through a friend, but that's a process of spreading the art i believe you know that very well. so you see, i love(d) your material, and i bought em ;) yeah, this gigging and touring thing may be a good idea for "adapting", since DRM and all that bogus crap benefits neither the musician nor the listener.
