HOLY FUCK THEY'RE COVERING ALICE IN CHAINS.
I just read about this on Blabbermouth to.
Hopefully it'll be a good album
The whole album could be shit, the only thing I care about is the AiC cover.
Kidding... but that made my fucking day.
Hopefully they took more time in the writing process than they did for GR.
Akerfeldt said they had a lot of fun doing this record, unlike the others. This album might be very, very good.
im pumped, other than the fact that i heard theres gonna be a good ammount of folk on it
It's going to be interesting, probably unlike a lot of their older stuff.
An AiC cover? Weird...they usually cover bands with talent.
*ignores what he just said about AiC*
Looking forward to it.
Clarification: I don't hate AiC, I just don't think they have a whole lot of talent.
I am looking forward to it. Is it gonna be a concept album?
Why the fuck do they have to cover anything? Bullshit
who cares, it's just bonus crap
anyway, I'm pumped, should be killer
and "watershed" is a much better name than Holocaust on the Moon
I am looking forward to the covers
I actually can't wait to hear that AiC cover - a lot of people can appreciate that they wrote killer tunes. Their albums were well put together and the melodies were incredible at times.
horaaay, can't wait
Yeah, Cantrell is such an underrated guitarist.
^Indeed. Cantrell is a great songwriter as well. The only "big" songs Layne wrote was Angry Chair and part of Man in the Box.
What do you consider "talent"?
I think Opeth covering Alice In Chains is a pretty shitty idea as much as I love them.
I can't wait. I really enjoyed Ghost Reveries and think the new album is going to be much better.
Ghost Reveries and Damnation were good albums despite the huge commercial direction they took (but quite honestly, they always had commercial leanings).
Damnation was to please the fans, not a commercial move, and I think that GR was just underwritten, and was pressured by the label.
