Title: 4th studio album?
Post by: machinaeFREAK on August 15, 2010, 02:37:26 pm
I quote wikipedia: 'The band is currently working on material for their fourth studio album. Andreas Gerdin hinted that the new album may be set for an October 2010 release.'

IS THIS TRUE?

plz let it be  :)

Great banana waffles!

Didn't we hear about this a while ago? lol

Plus they update certain social pages with things like: "Sitting here, working my way through the album material, polishing the details... And considering what parts will need re-recording ;)"

Well, while it's not updated nearly as often as their facebook page, Robert's deviantArt page (nordlander.deviantart.com) has been giving some tidbits every once in a while about stuff going on with the new album. His latest post (mind you, this was back in May) states:
Quote
Everything is awesome.

...Except I'm not very good at bullshitting into a camera.

I was thinking about making some sort of video log of our album recording process, but I just feel like a douchbag explaining things to a camera.

I don't know, maybe I'm not a camera person?

Anywho, will probably give it another try and hopefully produce something worth watching... We'll see

So you can occasionally get little snippets like that from the dA page, but these can be few and far between. His last post before that one was about him listening to ideas for the new album ^_^ but this was back in Nov of 2009 ;P

I thought this is what the Webology is for?
Also, i don't mind SID in winterstorm-quantities, but i appreciate a good guitarwork, too.
Especially heavy metal riffs like in Conveyer.

5€ says there is going to be a cover song.

Alas, no we didn't =P
We turned up the Methul, got rid of some pop but not all and threw in some crazy amount of SID. Not winterstorm'ish -lots, but enough to get the MOAR SID whores to jizz. =)
I guess most of the songs got a really solid SID track. It's kinda ironic tho that ttlg and e&p don't have like ANY SID.

You'll get teasers in September. =)

You should make a teaser trailer, counting down to release date of the trailer, and then the trailer itself. And trailer should start with words "IN YEAR 2010" with deep voice. Also it should contain snippets of "Fly in space".

Most probably going to include a poster, although word from Dezo is that for signed things you have to go to a gig, so unfortunately said poster won't be signed. As for other epic uber fan things, I spoke to him about the possibility of a Trinity guitar pick, and it wasn't sounding hopeful. Any guitar pick manufacturers that print custom icons are either rubbish or too expensive. Dezo did say there is a possibility that they may choose not to profit on the epic uber fan pack, that they may include many random things at a cost to them but with an affordable price for us, the fans.

I'll put money on a poster, a Trinity button, exclusive album art and one or two extra tracks being included. As for other stuffs, we'll just have to wait and see.

As for preorders, this is just speculation but judging by information gathered thus far, I'd say end of September to the start of October, with a release date within the first quarter of November.

Don't quote me on it. Complete speculation.

And as awesome as it would be to get to a gig, or a release-party thing, how many people would head out there in Winter?

Speaking of gigs, I did actually speak to Rob about gigging in the UK a while back - and seeing as this next album is going to be more of an international release there may be a possibility of some publicity gigs in the UK if Spinefarm decide to fund it. Here's hoping.

Oh yeah, it's amazing to read some litte informations from the new album even when it's only leaked album titles or an information that anything is recorded or mixed or something.

May you can give some more of these information-bites to let us hooked fans keep horny for new Masu drugs ^^

What I want to know: Are there any planed songs for the last album (like Player Two: Sidstar, or the planed rock ballard) which are not been on Overworld in the end, available on the upcoming one? A simply Yes or No would be sufficient.

Another one: When the new album is out how long we must wait for the 5th one? And when comes the 6th? Just kidding, can't wait of the 4th  :P
Title: Re: 4th studio album?
Post by: robert on September 01, 2010, 03:11:47 pm
Only completely new songs. But one of the songs is named after one of the album title suggestions (before we chose 'Overworld').

I might do a play-by-play description of the new album somewhere inbetween now and the release date to give you guys an idea, if only in words, what to expect.

To give you something a bit more specific right now, I'll just leave you with this:
There is no Steve-song on this album. There is however a March of The Undead part IV.

Any hints if March IV will be more like the originals, or more like the eery, slow, beautiful part III?

Also: Steve is always present, even if he doesn't have a song. ALWAYS.

Anyway, to sum up all revealed songs so far:
  • A View From The End Of The World
  • Rocket Dragon
  • March Of The Undead Pt. IV
  • Indiscriminate Murder Is Counter-productive
  • Nova Prospekt
  • Shinigami
  • 9. Cybergenesis
  • 10. Crouching Sniper Hidden Camper

I only know 2 track numbers so far. I don't think Cybergenesis has been quoted on the forums as being track 9 before but I'm pretty sure Dezo said it was 9 on Facebook chat with me at some point.

Wow this time some of the song titles are very long compared to the others. E.g. "Indiscriminate Murder Is Counter-productive" looks mega long on a tracklist compared to songs like "Ninja", "Ronin", "Nemesis" or "Skin". But a title like "A View From The End Of The World" sounds very epic and promising.

What's about "War Angel" which was mentioned before from dezo in this thread: http://forum.machinaesupremacy.com/index.php/topic,6643.msg238935.html#msg238935
Is it on the roster or will it come for free like mentioned in the thread? I know I'm annoying because I'm so curious ^^

Oh, War Angels? Isn't that the 2nd game that Machinae Supremacy/Hubnester Industries was supposed to make music for (Jets'N'Guns being the first), but it didn't get completed? I remember some of the tracks we got our hands on were really sweet.

It won't be a good album unless if the band thinks that it's great. If not, then it shows that they didn't put a lot of work into it.

Then again, I don't think Ozzy put a lot of work in his last two albums yet everyone froths over them. /boggle

Different is only good if it doesn't suck. And as it happens, when it comes to art, I have _one_ skill. Hawt cyberchick faces.

The other cover, I realize now, is simply a lesser specimen in every way. Yes, folks... What I am saying is: Prepare for yet another awesome chick staring back at you from the new album cover.

News! From Robert's twitter:
Quote from: starbert
Album cover work. I've done female faces as cover art for the last two albums. This time, I'm doing something different.
Not everyone is using this Twitter thing, so I thought it was worth copying. Let the speculations begin(?)!
Yet again here with the inside scoop.. Gaijin is rumoured to be doing a collaboration with rob for the album art. Now, seeing as Gaijin specialises in artistic nudes, my automatic guess would be along those lines. However, I do think it's something much different and unexpected.

He does plenty of photography in plenty of different categories, maybe he is just taking a nice photo of a city or town that Rob can light on fire!

Hmmm... might this be an early prototype of the album art?

The cover for the Redeemer Underground Edition was awesome, and it wasn't a female face. Are the same things every time not a little bit drab? I don't dislike it but a different style would be cool imho.

Working on the booklet right now. I'm curious... How important are lyrics in an album booklet? Personally I like it, but I want your opinions. Don't be shy, let us know... Do you buy an album, and lie back on your bed and read the lyrics as you listen the first time, or do you buy/warez/spotify digitally only and don't really care? // gazz

What I tweeted back at Gaz:

Quote
@starbert @machinsupremacy I like booklets + lyrics, but doing something different / surprising is even BETTER. Think Tool CDs

I always like to have the lyrics in the booklets, especially when it's hard to learn all the lyrics by just listening. But, if you do something special, like Tool often does with there CD's, I like that even better. The transparant Lateralus cover or the 3D 10,000 Days cover are great examples of that IMO.

Lyrics are always nice.

But not having them makes you listen that much harder and pay attention a lot more which makes you appreciate it more.

I would love to have the official lyrics, as lyric websites tend to get things wrong. In some cases, it's just plain hard to hear what's being said, and this holds true for every band in existence.

I would also like to point out, in a completely unrelated note, that there is a disturbing lack of booklet scans in torrents  O0

I couldn't agree more. I think if the album were to somehow mysteriously randomly make its way into torrents that there should be high resolution scans of the booklet and album art should be included also.

Then again, there is also the chance that rob could release the album art as a dA piece or something like he has done with previous albums :)

Post by: robert on September 22, 2010, 09:25:16 am
The new album, play by play:

1.   A View From The End of The World
A truly unmistakable Machinae Supremacy track, echoing songs like “Seventeen” and “Fighters From Ninne”.

2.   Force Feedback
This song is the very definition of SID METAL. Rolling kicks, insane ARPing, and a very melodic and epic chorus. This song also features a new female guest-star.

3.   Rocket Dragon
A war song. Very melodic, with a NES-inspired verse and an epic bridge. A classic NES-synth also roams the chorus. Epic guitar solo (over 1 minute long).

4.   Persona
Ever wonder what a rhodes piano would do in a Machinae Supremacy song? Wonder no more.
"...And though the war path hardly knows your name, all the same. The taste of blood between your teeth feels real."

5.   Nova Prospekt
Drawing inspiration from songs such as “Empire”, this modern fight song shifts between heavy and intense, but remains aggressive throughout.

6.   World of Light
Intro for Shinigami.

7.   Shinigami
A SID-punk anthem that combines elements from songs like “Sid Icarus”, “Return to Snake Mountain” and “Overworld”. Pure fast-paced win and awesome. The title of the intro to this song should pretty much make it clear which “Shinigami” reference this is.

8.   Cybergenesis
Guitar-heavy metal track with 80s-rock influences. Megaman-inspired verse, a lot of cool guitars, wah-wah-solo(s), and more. The story of the song is pretty cool too, but I’ll refrain from giving it away completely because I rather enjoy letting you guys interpret freely. Though it is an "original" story, not a reference.
"We placed the light of our sentience within the machinae, and we would send it to heaven to end God's regime."

9. Action Girl
An ode to all Action Girls out there. This track is metal by sound but action rock by design.

10. Crouching Camper Hidden Sniper
Playful punk song that touches upon a subject that any true gamer can relate to. "I always got the Most Knife Kills - Check your killcam to review my skills."

11. Indiscriminate Murder is Counter-Productive
Someone who enjoys GTA a bit too much will run into trouble playing games like Zelda. A bouncingly fun song about murder.

12. One Day in The Universe
A love song. Srly. This one might be one of those “old-style” Machinae Supremacy songs that take a few listens to get used to. Spinefarm actually suggested we cut it from the album but more or less thanks to Gordon's sister, it is still there. :)

13. The Greatest Show on Earth
Pure pop-metal song about the online generation (yeah, you/us).
“Oh how we’ve waited for this. Art, expression, and... Shared playlists.”

14. Remnant (march of the undead iv)
The 4th in the series of March of The Undead tracks from Machinae Supremacy. Heavy. Epic. What else would it be?

The Rhodes piano is an electro-mechanical piano, invented by Harold Rhodes[1] during the fifties and later manufactured in a number of models, first in collaboration with Fender and after 1965 by CBS.
As a member of the electrophone sub-group of percussion instruments, it employs a piano-like keyboard with hammers that hit small metal tines, amplified by electromagnetic pickups.[1] A 2001 New York Times article described the instrument as "a pianistic counterpart to the electric guitar"[2] having a "shimmering, ethereal sound."[2] Artist D'Angelo described it has having a "thick, almost gooey sound."[3]

So many Happy Punk Pop Rock songs :(

Screw that. I'm sure that this album gonna kick ass. Because This Is MaSu. And i believe that Gordon approved those songs.

And also i see a half full glass:
numbers: 1,2,3,4,5,8,14... also 6,7,9,10,11,12 and 13 will be awesome.

This is more than half! I'm not optimist, i must be drugged! Life is beautiful, and Machinae is better than life!

Just by description, this album sound awesome. And I mean really, really awesome. Props to you guys for experimenting in every direction and not closing yourself into your declared genre. I think that's what makes you true musicians - exploring every new possibility, making great music and also discretely telling your label to fuck off. Can't wait!

I must have a release date within the next seven days, or I will kill one innocent child every hour until one is announced.

The release date must then come to pass within the next seven days after that, or I will kill one innocent child every ten minutes until it does.

Discriminate murder, however, can be hilarious. You can't spell manslaughter without laughter.

I told you guys; I'm a changed man now.

To attempt to re-rail the topic; has anyone noticed we're currently in the calm before the storm? The album is finished, album art has been submitted and I'm guessing the cd's are being printed as we speak. Rob is working on the website for the big reveal, and also designing some new merch and some other "cool things".

The time is upon us, very soon (I'd say within the next two days) we will get a spontaneous website update some time during the day, and everyone will explode with excitement, jizzing all over the place and throwing mounds of cash at the webshop for preorders and sexy new hoodies and shirts and posters and yet again the forum will be overrun by 1001 n00bs.

I love album release time. :)

Yes, the album will be available from the MachinaeShop as well, we're just waiting for new shirt designs to release it so that people can get the chance to order both a shirt and the new album if they want. It will be available from the MachinaeShop no later than October 6th.

Downside, band may not get as much ferraris.

I already knew about that ;) the majority of the album is going to be in E tuning. Seems they've been in a pattern of down-tuning every album, some drop D in DXM, drop C in Redeemer and even some drop B in Overworld. I'm so glad they're reversing this trend and returning to their roots.

As far as I know the tunings on Redeemer varied wildly, from E (Seventeen, I think?) down to Rogue World Asylum in A. I don't think there was more down-tuning on Overworld than on Redeemer.

Furthermore, IIRC they used standard tuning in lower pitches, not drop tuning.

This doesn't sound right. I went through the list of Rock Band Network songs. I found many bands outside of the US, both independent and signed, in RBN. One in particular, Amberian Dawn of Spinefarm Records, from Finland has a song called "Lionheart" on the RBN store. Maybe they recently changed their policy, but I don't think it's only available to American bands, unless I am missing something????

I dunno personally, I've never tried. Thats just what Rob said, and I remember thinking that was super exclusive of RBN to not allow other bands. Are you sure that Amberian Dawn song is not just a cover, as Chronologix suggested doing for a Machinae song? I know back when I played Guitar Hero, many of the songs were covers, and it would say things such as "Beast and the Harlot, as made famous by Avenged Sevenfold", stuff like that.

To be not off topic anymore, what's about my last band releated question about "War Angel" which was mentioned from dezo one year ago? Now that the track list for the new Album is out, and "War Angel" isn't count on the list, I'm even more interested of the track.

hehe, as you all know we actually enjoy releasing stuff at random for free.
Mebbe it's time to bring it to spinefarm and release War Angel...
So when it must be brought to spinefarm, it couldn't anything to do with the Hubnester War Angels Soundtrack. Is it a canceled track or a song on ice/work in progress like "Player Two" or "Sidstar"?

I think Robert was talking about this part of the program terms (http://creators.rockband.com/site/programTerms):

Quote
2.1. U.S. Residents Only. You must be a legal resident of the United States, its territories or its possessions.

The thing is, I'm pretty sure those terms only apply to the person who charts the songs, and there are people who'll chart songs for bands who don't have the time/interest/citizenship to do it themselves.  For example, I've seen this group (link (http://www.rhythmauthors.com/faq.php)) mentioned a couple times while lurking on ScoreHero (not an endorsement by any means, just a name that I remembered).  If MaSu were to give their masters to a group like that, they could get their songs on RBN, in exchange for giving the charting group a share of the royalties.  Shades of the label system >_<, though I suppose it would also be possible for a few U.S. people on this board to do the charting/uploading without taking a cut.

Really, though, there's no point in worrying about RBN until it has been updated to support the Rock Band 3 keyboard.

There are companies who take your money (500usd per song) to chart and put your songs on RBN if you are not american.

I'm not sure we really have the budget for that, and also it makes me a little bit uneasy to include a middle man in something like this. It's really stupid that we even have to, I really don't get why the services isn't just available for everyone.

I think the US is just a little paranoid about copyright and "teh intarnetz"

Alot of US based online programs and stores are doing 2 things recently, 1 is restrict access to only US citizens, and the second is open access to international means.

Example was Newegg, you used to only be able to get things as a US citizen, now they have some "wider" arrangements, whereas something like AdultSwim, only allows access to US citizens, when they previously allowed all information to international countries.

We are just in an unlucky state of affairs when you try and deal with American businesses as an international provider. :P

Maybe if you contact Harmonix directly, and if they like your music enough, they can get you into official DLC. That way I don't think you would have to pay a dime, your tracks would be charted by the pros at harmonix and could include the pro mode for guitar and keyboard, and it's probably better publicity and money to be included in official DLC as opposed to RBN.

I'll stop talking about Rock Band now... :P

The year 2010 is treating me good! My three favorite bands have all released (or will be releasing) a new record this year! Coheed and Cambira, Volbeat and Machinae Supremacy! The tension is building here, can't wait! Reading the song description again, I can only believe this album will be great. I thought Overworld to be slightly disappointing, and if I had to describe the different songs, many of those describtions would be the same: "Happy, light, up-tempo bleepy bleep rock/punky song."

Awesome! BUT the quality is crap or the mastering is strange.

May that's the compression from facebook? For me it sounds cool, after I've downloaded it.

I have compared it: The download-file has much better quality. Plus you can use an equalizer to adjust the sound :)

The funny thing: Every time I listen to a new MaSu Album/Song, I think it's the fucking best Album/Song on earth. After I heard Redeemer for example I ask me that the Album/song can not be better and then there was Overworld, improved in quality and still cool and awesome. And now I've heard one song from the new album and think: "That's unbeliveable... it's supremacy" ^^
Title: Re: 4th studio album?
Post by: WilllemNL on October 06, 2010, 10:58:10 pm
New song sounds awesome! I'm really surprised. Overworld disappointed me a little bit and I didn't like the overall tone of that album. Force Feedback sounds really, really awesome though. It's more gritty, and the riffs are really oldschool. Nice SID. And it's a good sing-along too. What an accomplishment!

Besides:

When I click 'download entire album' in the Music Section, nothing happens in Google Chrome!

After few listens... damn, Force Feedback is a new definition of uber-epicness. You make your metuhl stuff so magically, that it does appeal even to casual metal listeners, like me. This track is so awesome that it's hard to tell what's best in it. Nicky's drums are awesome, Jonne's and Gordon's guitars are awesome, Dezo's bass is awesome, Rob's and Tove's voices are awesome, backing track is awesome.

If at least one third of your new album keeps this level of awesomeness, I'm building you an altar.

And screw that I'm unemployed, I'm buying the fan pack even if it means I'd have to steal the money from homeless prostitutes.

At first, I want to repeat my facebook comment - absolutely awesone song, I continue to go insane, waiting for the rest of the album.

To be honest, I was a little afraid that Nicky's drumming style would be different from Tom's style. As a drummer, I often notice the difference between the style of different drummers. And I was wondering: "Will Nicky's style fit the music? Won't it sound unusual?", because the Tomas's style of playing differs in many respects from Tobbe's one.
And now I'm completely sure that Nicky is the Real Machinae Supremacy Drummer - his play does fit the whole band style - and this is great :)

PS Like every law-abiding Machinae fan, must say that I will try to pre-order the album, but it's not a simple thing for me to do, so...  :-\

Thanks to whoever that is, scrobbling the songs from the new album, we have the track lengths, which I'm not sure if have been publicized yet:

A View From The End of The World (3:53)
Force Feedback (5:35)
Rocket Dragon (4:52)
Persona (5:18)
Nova Prospekt (5:14)
World of Light (1:14)
Shinigami (4:09)
Action Girl (4:13)
Cybergenesis (5:44)
Crouching Camper Hidden Sniper (3:59)
Indiscriminate Murder is Counter-Productive (4:06)
One Day in The Universe (4:16)
The Greatest Show on Earth (3:32)
Remnant (March of the Undead IV) (5:55)

If this is accurate, I'm disappointed by the lack of epics. New song is fantastic, though.

If this is accurate, I'm disappointed by the lack of epics. New song is fantastic, though.

I dunno, there gets to be a point in some songs where they feel like they're scrabbling to stay on track. Even Force Feedback, Epic though it is, seems at a couple points to go a tad aimless before it segues back into awesome.

If the songs are good, I'd rather more, shorter ones with different themes (and perhaps styles as well!) to fewer long songs that may or may not maintain cohesion.

What's not epic about a 6min long song?? I'm sure Remnant will be lots of epic. Besides, Skin is the very definition of epic, and still it's 5min24 long.

I guess we can count getting a shirt as pre-order also. The song will be released as soon as we reach 150 orders. / Gordon

I don't post here very often, even though I (as you will notice from this post) do Machinae Supremadrugs at least lots of times a day. This day, however, I noticed something fantastic. I found a new track on MaSu's facebook page, and this is what happened when I pushed the magic button:

Let's begin with saying that I was extremely pumped even before I heard the song. I've been looking forward to this moment ever since I was fucking born. That's right, you heard it, fucking born, that's how much. I was shaking uncontrollably by the unfathomable POWER generated by the news Evilcandybag was so kind as to deliver to me, when I moved my mouse over to the play-button, and as I clicked with my mouse I simultaneously punched my desk to shove me backwards. This was just a security measure to ensure I wouldn't destroy my computer when the surge came.

The first SID bleeps and beeps suddenly burst out of my (father's) huge 14000 € amazingly awesome 5.1 sound system like a cyber-powered spaceship flying a million times faster than light, while firing it's huge lazers AND barrelrolling to escape from the universe. The POWER-output of that single occurrence was so huge that I couldn't hold the ultimate POWER-roar of awesome in anymore. I was amazed that I didn't cause an earthquake or make small pieces of random debris levitate around me, because that was insane! Not to mention when the drums and guitars and base and everything nice kicked in, I totally flipped. And with flipped, I mean literally. My first head-bang was so violent it threw me off my feet, and it also caused me to fall over and faceplant the carpet. Here I was yet again amazed that I didn't break the floor and fall straight down into awesomeland. In space. With fire. And lazers. And a stage. And a band, literally slaughtering their audience with their awesome sounds of insane POWER, powered by engines of  extreme metal and fueled by lazer-doped SID of doom. You know which.

Though the pain didn't matter to me at the time, because I was so pumped by this awesome piece of music that has been produced by this awesome band called Machinae Supremacy that nothing else mattered. I could write on for ages about how fantastic the song is, but I guess many of you feel the same way, and that my writing would be wasted.


Anyway, I got so muchinae awesomisanized by Force Feedback I pre-ordered three copies of the album. One album for me, one album for Evilcandybag (happy birthday in advance, bro) and one for myself.

The MaSu shop is just our own shop. Managed by us.
Ofc we can't make the same deals on our merch as bigger companies can... so even if the shipping is a tad more expensive and the merch not as cheap as you're used to while shopping at wallmart, bear in mind that we're working our methul-asses off to get you all the best quality possible.
In our opinion quality always surpasses quantity. That's why d00ds that bought the zipped hoodie 4 years ago still can represent with pride.
Tho if we by some random chance start to sell shitloads of records from our own shop then ofc we'll get better deals on shipping too.

It seems like Stifo might like the releasegig. =)

Yes, I just realized what I actually had written when I read your post.

I still have my zip-hoodie. I've wore it as much as I've could over the years, it's definitely one of my best purchases! :D

Well that actually makes perfect sense!
Oh well, I guess I can live without the EOTW-shirt, or buy it later.

On teh facebook Gordon says something special (new song) would happen at XX amount of pre-orders, and since you guys can manage your own shop, could you change pre-orders to have special benefits depending on the increasing number of pre-orders?

Like 200 pre-orders = t-shirt, 275 = t-shirt and a poster, or something?

And this is why you guys are awesome...  I've worn my zip hoodie every fall/winter since I got it, and it barely looks a day older.  It was a bit expensive for me as I ordered from the US, but I'll be damned if it wasn't worth every penny.   ;)

And wow, it really has been four years...  I'm getting old XD

Okay, so I've been trying to work out how close we are to getting that new song..

The count started at roughly 7:00PM on Friday night according to Facebook. I made my preorder at 7:30 PM and was order #2221.

Quote
Your Order ID is: #2301
Here we can see Ageless is order number #2301 at roughly 1:10 AM the following day.

That means that between 7:30 PM and 01:10 AM, 80 orders were made. The difference between those two times is 5 hours and 10 minutes.

Using this data, I worked out that between 7:00 PM (when the count begun) and 01:10 AM, 88 preorders were made.

If 88 orders were made in the 5 hours and 40 minutes that we have data for, taking into account slow early morning sales and also that some of the orders would have been for multiple copies of the album, I'd say we're due that new song today at roughly 6PM today.

EDIT: But ofcourse I suck at maths and sales aren't a constant flow of easily calculable data, so I may be off by one or two minutes ;)

If you order the album from the MachinaeSHOP or RecordshopX or whatever - the album may take a while to be in your hands but I am certain it will reach pirate shores after (if not on) release date, so you'll be able to listen to it in true lossless 32bit .ALAC format whilst you wait.

I really figured we would. You guys are too awesome to do that to us ;). I didn't wanna put words in anyones mouth though. But I still hope we get 150 preorders this weekend. Everyone needs to experience the fun of that hand written address package, tearing it open and getting the CD. Then keeping the packaging cause it's like an autograph from potentially a band member, just never know who ;P. I still have all mine, heheh

Oh, and happy binary day :P

On a related note: I guess the ordernumbers were reset when the new webshop launched? so you´ve gotten 2300+ orders in a couple of days? Thats awesome :)

THAT. Just that. Can't wait!

I think Nova Prospekt is going to take some time getting used to, an exact opposite to Force Feedback, which I loved immediatly. Having to get used to a song is mostly a good sign. It says: "This is something different, something new, something that feels 'wrong' at first." I experienced this with albums like Crack the Skye (Mastodon) and the first Coheed and Cambria record. Now two of my many favorite albums.

Yeah. I like that too. It's more subtle than on the site releases and DXM, but it's definetly A LOT more there than on Overworld. Just like I love it. And the SID at like 3:30 - end is soooo fantastic. Music is too.

IMHO Nova Prospekt sounds way better - it's not as compressed as Force Feedback and the high frequencies are intact here (just listen to Nicky's open hats), with mastering resembling Redeemer, pretty close to the sound of Reanimator. That's soundwise.

But in general both songs are equally awesome. I noticed the band's tendencies to do epic bridges and solos on the new album. Nice of you to give us two pretty different songs, but as I said both are equally awesome and it's impossible for me to point out the better one.

There are even more styles on the album. As per usual, we transcend genres as we reinvent them ;)

No, but seriously, like with Overworld and Redeemer, you'll find pure "poprock" songs, fast punk-like songs, heavy metal songs, power(ish) metal songs, and more!

Remnant comes closest to ballad, but it's not an acoustic-style ballad like Flagcarrier but more of a doomsday metroid-meets-demoscene-after-dark ballad. Dunno if that even makes sense. But yeah.

5.   Nova Prospekt
Drawing inspiration from songs such as “Empire”, this modern fight song shifts between heavy and intense, but remains aggressive throughout.

xD Throughout the song I often had to think of Empire, and here Gaz is also mentioning Empire.
Like the others, I like the use of SID in both new songs.

The song's a true hymn. It's nothing like any other MaSu song. It has this very powerful tempo, and accelerates during the bridge with, once again, a master solo. Heavy as fsck, with an unforgettable chorus. The more I listen to it, the more I like it.

The drums are pure awesomeness, they make the bridge sound soooo epic.

The chorus on Nova Prospekt is orgasmic, the beat is wonderfully intense.

But I dislike the ending of force feedback. after the bleeps at the end (@5:11) they repeat chorus once more, personally I would have liked if the bleeping ended the song ;). (but that's just me being a hardass)

Hi guys!

I'm a little bit confused at the moment. It was long time ago that new songs are released for download. One year ago the band was asked for the reason and dezo answered following:

We can't release stuff for free anymore since we have a record deal.
We released Bionic Commando and Area 8 for free tho.

Atm we can't even rehearse because of the drummer situation.
With your support we'll soon take over the world tho =)

Now there are two songs from the new album released for free. Are there not any problems with Spinefarm anymore?

And few days later, after dezo has explained the situation, he says that "War Angel" can be released, when it was brought to Spinefarm. That's why I'm confused because it controverts each other.

btw, I love the new songs so much. I have a cool new playlist with two songs in ^^

I'm not listening to MaSu today. Whole night of listening to Nova Prospekt made me dream about wanting to go to a MaSu gig in Sweden, but not having money to do so. And I just woke up (it's 11 AM here), so I've got like 5 minutes to take a shower and go to university, but still I'm posting on some Swedish SID-Metal band's forum. Damn it!

About a week ago I made a playlist compiling my 15 personal favourite songs by Machinae Supremacy.
Then I heard about new song (Force Feedback) being released in a short time.
After listening to and falling in love with instantly, I was considering two options: add it to the existing playlist or create another one, with other awesome tracks and Force Feedback.
A bit later, even before I had had enough of Force Feedback, Nova Prospekt has been released.
And I've been blown away.
Now I'm certain that my second playlist of MaSu absolute favs will be in fact the whole new album, A View from the End of the World.
And I just can't wait.

BTW, anyone has "Area 8" as an mp3/ogg/whatever file and is willing to send a copy to me?

That's not the same. Here, they release some songs to promote the album. They are not just songs we get for free. They're on an album which will be sold. In order for this album to be sold, it needs to be promoted a bit, so the band teases us with some extracts of the album. Hope it was clear enough dude :s

I'm a little annoyed by all the guys here who shoot with big double barrels on Overworld saying it lacked this or that, which the new songs totally have. I was here when Overworld was released, and the reactions were the exact same ones as today. Everyone was stroking himself real hard over the new songs saying they were awesome and epic and more mature. So you all loved the album. And now you say it was not that good, not enough SID etc... It's a little confusing. I know you're not hypocrites, so why suddenly say that Overworld was just okay when at the time of the release it was the best stuff in the galaxy?

I had not heard of Machinae Supremacy beforebefore Overworld came out. My friend sent me one of their one site release tracks (Fury, if you ask) and I then downloaded Overworld. I joined the "MaSu is awesome!!!!1111" clan late, but nevertheless, I am here. I loved Overworld as soon as I listened to it. Personally, I think it is awesome, and on a par with redeemer and DxM, if not better.
I am afraid to say I torrented all MaSu's albums (don't worry, I have bought Overworld and Redeemer RE, and plan to buy the rest when I can afford them) but if I hadn't, I would never have discovered how awesome their retail cds were.
I can't wait for EOTW and I can't wait for any other albums they release, for free or not. Machinae Supremacy will be a band I will always have faith in (the are made of pure win and awesome) and will always be a band I am prepared to buy music from, no questions asked, with no hypocrysm about whether I like a song when it is release.

I love Overworld Xarion.  ???

In fact, I usually use Overworld tracks to introduce people to Machinae. I typically work my way backwards since it just seems to ease people not familiar with this sort of thing into it. Overworlds overall sound quality was top notch. As for me, I keep everything from site releases to Overworld on my playlist. I don't find anything lacks any particular instrument, it's just good music. Sid is awesome, but not required en mass to make a good song.  ;D

With that being said I don't think I've seen anyone flame Overworld but maybe I missed it. If so, poo on them! ;)
Title: Re: 4th studio album?
Post by: Schattenjaeger on October 11, 2010, 08:50:49 pm
Overworld was, I think, conceived and created as a more mainstream album to try and draw in people who might be off put by the unique sound of MaSu if they were not weened to it by liking the band and then the music, rather than the other way around (for those of us who were introduced to MaSu through the web tracks/DXM/RUE), as noted by Drakonis. I, too, introduce people to MaSu largely through Overworld, excepting those I know are enough like me to dig the SiD-heavy early stuff. EOTW, on the other hand, in a tour de force return to their roots; now the people who came to them via Overworld are going to learn what MaSu is really all about.

And the hardcore fans get to drool more = P

Yep, you're absolutely right, that's a far simplier explanation ahah. They don't give away free songs anymore, now the songs are available for streaming only. Good point!

@Hadou & Drakonis : hell yeah I'm glad you still hold Overworld in high esteem guys! Overworld hasn't been exactly flamed, but I'm fearing it might head that way... Schweinsteiger you're right, Overworld is a more maintream album. But I think it's a more mature one too. An album in which they digested the SID side of their music to incorporate it in a more subtle way. Meaning that the moments when we hear SID clearly (Overworld, Stand, Conveyer) it blows our souls. But I can understand that for someone who came to love MaSu with DXM (not my category, I discovered them thanx to Redeemer), Overworld could have been a bit of a disappointment. But it's an album so powerful... I've never ever heard a riff as headbanging as the one which starts Overworld. I still listen to that song twice a week at the least, because it justs pumps me up and pushes me to 200%.

I too use Overworld to introduce MaSu, but not because I think it's a more mainstream sound, but because it feels like the highest quality music they have done. and I don't think Overworld lacked in SID, it was just not as consistent , few tracks with large SID and few tracks not so much. Sid Icarus, well let's say that it's appropriately named :P. Then Conveyor with a SID solo, Violator has a very prominent SID the entire time, and then Overworld, Need for Steve, and Gimmie Gimmie deliver the SID very well. Then the rest of the tracks are lacking, and it's usually the slower stuff, and idk about you guys, but I fucking love the slow MaSu as much as the SID-rage MaSu. Anyways, there is my 2 cents. I just appreciate the variety and style given by the band. \m/

Overworld was, I think, conceived and created as a more mainstream album
And I think Machinae wouldn't give a shit about being mainstream or not ;)

To be honest, I also have been getting a bit bored of Overworld lately, but maybe that's because it has been around so long already and I've listened to it too much. But maybe that is also because Redeemer had a greater diversity in style. I don't know.

I agree with this. Overworld has my favorite guitar tone evar, i love it so much, especially in songs like Overworld and Stand and like all the others XD However, I don't think that, as an album, Overworld was as strong as Redeemer or DXM. While Overworld has some of my all-time favorite MaSu songs, it also has some of my least favorite of their songs (still awesome, just not AS good, imho). Redeemer is a better album to me, it's got so much variety in the styles and tones and everything, it's just such an amazingly diverse album, and I love every song on it. I also slightly prefer Deus Ex Machinae over Overworld, simply because I love all the songs on DXM (cept one), but I dont love as many on Overworld. I dunno, Overworld is still great, and a helluva lotta fun to listen to, I just prefer their other albums :)
Also, Im part of the group that joined the bandwagon during the Redeemer days, so I got to experience later and earlier stuff than when I joined :)

Besides, I'm pretty sure we can all agree that EOTW sounds like it is going to completely blow us away as Machinae Supremacy expands and transcends their own work, from the songs we've heard so far :D :D :D

Edit: Also to me the new songs sound more metal and have more predominant SID \m/ !!! Also Nova Prospekt sounded kinda power metal to me :)

I have a feeling this album is going to be a perfect mix between DeM / Redeemer and Overworld. Awesome lively songs, good use of SID, great vocals and awesome guitar / synth / drum play.

By the way... Nova Prospekt, isn't that a reference to Half-Life 2?

I've ripped the .mp4's off the official Youtube page (the 720p ones) and they seem to be higher quality than the Facebook player rips.. I'm not 100% sure but the filesizes are definitely bigger - may be because of the video though but they do come out as 20.5mb and 21.5mb instead of ~10mb of the FB player rips..

As I said though, probably just because of the huge 720p picture. Although it is pretty cool - would be interesting to rip that out and probably make an unofficial wallpaper :P

Probably more to do with the whole big brother mentality of today's society, what with Nova Prospekt being "a security and detention installation controlled by the Combine in Half-Life 2."

That's just my two cents.

10mb for an mp3 is actually pretty good quality.

Most programs can rip a CD in FLAC. I have done it with Winamp, Foobar, and AIMP2. IMO, unless you have an amazing and expensive sound system, you really can't tell the difference between 320 MP3 and lossless FLAC. And since most MP3 players don't support FLAC, I just try to get 320 MP3s.

The facebook rips came out to be 256k, but they definitely do not sound like they are actually playing at that bitrate.  The youtube vids sound better at 720p, but either way I have the album on order so I'll have lossless come Nov 3rd (hopefully) :D

You can tell the difference if you have high-spec speakers cranked up to 11. The bass is much clearer on FLAC, as opposed to 256k mp3's, in which the bass warps and overwhelms the trebles.

MP3s and other compressed audio sources ultimately cut out the frequencies which humans generally can't hear. This nerfs the experience for those whose hearing ranges span a wider range than the typical human. Myself, for instance, I can perceive up into the 14-16KHz range, which is quite rare.

It can, however, be quite painful as well...

Every bit of compression is a loss to the song. (Not mixing/compression, mp3 and such).
Ofc you can have a better experience if you hear a song on a sweet rig with a correct source then if you hear the same song from a iPod with the standard (apple white piece of iShit -phones).

I threw out the iPhone headphones immediately. I have a few different pairs I use, all in ear buds. Razer ProTone 100 I believe is what one is called. I find myself using a pair from Brookstone often ironically. They were expensive but they are crisper and clear at high volumes, lock out all outside noise, and provide considerably sexy bass. I'm open to suggestions though for sure to improve my experience. Ive even considered getting a unit for my car so I don't have to listen on my iPhone. Or even replacing the iPhone as my music player to begin with. I guess it sounds great to me, but I know if it can sound better then id like it more. Kinda like when I finally got a pair of decent earbuds for the first time. I didn't know it could sound that much better so perhaps I'm ignorant. If there's room for that kind of improvement again I'd be foolish not to pursue it ;)

Like I said, to me what I have sounds great. But I also know there's bound to be better, so why not save up and enjoy it? :)
Title: Re: 4th studio album?
Post by: yas‮ on October 14, 2010, 12:47:07 am
iPhone/iPods could also use a graphic equalizer, but there's none available, which is sad. To listen to your MaSu when mobile I really recommend some in-ear phones, as they greatly reduce the outside noise. They can also act as a sort of an equalizer - want more bass? Just push them deeper into your ears. :) Creative's EP-630 are probably the best choice if you want a good quality to price ratio.

MaSu albums really differ in terms of mastering, so If you want to maintain a consistent sound throughout every song, you will definitely need some equalization. My personal favorite is Redeemer RE with its guitars being dominant, quieter but still noticeable bass and not too loud drums. Overworld's and DxM's open hats can make your ears hurt when listening loud through the headphones, though vocal is definitely a lot clearer and the overall sound is unique for both of them. It's greatly a matter of personal taste. I can't judge AVFTEOTW (what an ugly acronym) basing on crappy facebook rips yet, but for now I think it'll be a mixture between Overworld and RRE, with overall sound basing on the first, but the amount of compression and general feels similar to the latter.

Remember: you can use a high-end player, but two sets of headphones - different models, but even from the same manufacturer can alter the sound. Sometimes switching form the stock cable to a custom one can make a big difference. Even a pair of new headphones can play the sound differently than after 50 hours of playing. And as for the speakers - A LOT depends on your room's acoustics. And the nerves of your neighbours.

Don't forget a headphone amp for mobile devices...  I listen to music a lot on my Droid Incredible, and I noticed my UE Triple.Fi 3's sounded washed out...  $20 and a CMOY kit from ebay later, I noticed a MASSIVE improvement in sound quality.  It's still not as good as a more expensive amp, but it did make a pretty big difference.

Of course, don't bother unless you have higher end headphones, an amp would probably blow out the stock iphone earbuds :p

Yap, like I said I use strictly in-ear phones. It's been a while but I spent around 70-100 USD on the two pair I use today (well, one was on sale and probAbly ran me closer to 40. Go woot!). Of course cost doesn't really measure quality. When I'm on my PC I'll link what I use. I didn't even know ear phone amps existed. Sounds like it's time to research! ;)

If it's recorded lossless digitally (ie. as wav) writing to a digital media (like optical disks) does not involve any kind of compression.

If it's recorded on analog media first (such as tapes, DATs and shit - which I'm certain MaSu doesn't use), then some there will be losses in analog to digital conversion (known as ADC).

I hear you, I've been playing Nova Prospekt and Force Feedback way too much. The beautiful thing is, even with my rediculous abuse of their play they're holding up. They're every bit as good the first time I heard them as they are now. Machinae songs hold up so damn well, it's amazing. Theres not many songs, let alone bands, that can hold up to this kind of abusive replay without getting at least kind of boring or needing a break.

Wav is not lossless. It only has a limited sample rate!

http://www.justin.tv/ is a fairly popular streaming site, so you won't need much bandwidth.
Just plug a decent camera, then plug the mixer output to PC's soundcard input (or to camera's line-in), set it up in the browser and you're done. For a bit of a "live" feel you could also get a mic pointed at the audience and mix it quietly to the master output. There's a ton of possibilities for you to explore, though it seems like a fairly easy task. Note that a second mixer might be needed, cause the gig mix may sound crap, when heard at home.

DO THIS.

Just so you know guys, this isn't an impossibility.
I'll see what I can do about streaming/recording the concert. (If it's okay with the band OFC)

Are you familiar with the guys from the band or with recording, directing and broadcasting a show? Otherwise this is going to be a long shot, dude! But I wish you look, would be awesome if we could see the show.

Familiar with the band, kinda. Familiar with recording, a little.
I doubt I'll be able to stream it live, but recording it shouldn't be that hard. All I need is a camera and some mics, which can be provided to me through my school. :3

Nova Prospekt - 21:00 (9 PM).
So... are we waiting until 22:00?"

BUT SUDDENLY!

Hey people.... When this thread reaches 300 likes... A new song will be released. Ok? :) / Gordon

When you record vocals you record 2-3 takes that are all heard simultaneously. Then, add on top of that, 4 vocal harmony tracks.

Can you imagine what that would sound like without processing? 7 people trying to hold a perfect chord. It's impossible. All harmonies and dubs are tuned to not garble the mix. It doesn't matter what genre we're talking about, any pro recording will have tuner applied to the dubs and harmonies, if albeit varying degrees of it.

Some examples where it is really apparent: Bad Religion. You've all heard those "aaahs" in the background. You think those would sound that "steady" if not tuned? They wouldn't.

If you know what to listen for, you'll find this in everything from Celine Dion to In Flames. Sorry guys, whoever thought tuning was just for T-Pain, I hate to break it to you: It's a required ingredient of pro recording.

Yes, ofc.
However, Auto Tune != Post Proccessing, should be noted.
Fixing a minor error here 'n there is no biggie, auto-tuning the whole thing is bad (Like every other rapper today). ;)

Also, after listening to the song for real and with headphones, I didn't actually hear anything outstandingly auto-tuned (where you could actually hear that THIS is auto-tuned). Weird.

Rocket Dragon reminds me of something from Jets 'N' Guns. Can't put my finger on it exactly, though... Rocket Dragon is an easy listen. I don't like it as much as the the two other tracks, but it's good nontheless. I think this is going to be a great sing along live (for those who will be there).

I like Rocket Dragon very much. It's a very cool melody which remains in my ear even I don't listen the song. Same thing with the Force Feedback chorus by the way. It is hard to describe how amazing the new songs are. It's like: "put all existing Machinae Songs into a blender, press start and the mixed shit is like a huge orgasm" I love the new album, even it isn't out yet.

Btw, has anyone recognized that with "A View from the End of the Word" Machinae Supremacy is celebrating their 10th Anniversary of Band history? Congratulations from me for this capacity. MaSu I looooooove yooooou!!!!!1111one *screams like a teenage girl*

I wouldn't  care too much about the opinion from the guys at GlobalDomination. They often write reviews that make no sense, because they think music is not 'true' enough. They like to swear a lot so that they look bad-ass. One of the guys writing at GD is a member in The Project Hate MCMXCIX, a Swedish death metal band (and a good one at that).

I think it's just the rhythm to be honest.

To me, it's quite different, but then again I listen to a lot of fast-paced music.

Maaaaaan, album is so close I can taste it.  ;D

I guess now the song I'm dying to hear is Cybergenesis.... and the rest of the album, whom's I be kiddin?

Edit: Also, to join the discussion here, I honestly do not like Dragonforce. I've listened to some of their stuff and meh, just not a Dragonforce fan. I can see why people would like them though. With that being said, I loved Shinigami. I did not even THINK of Dragonforce when I listened to it. Didn't even remotely cross my mind. I don't see where anyone could make that comparison, but I guess it's all subjective to what you hear and what you like.

Yeah, GD have evidently done two things:

1) Desperately claw around for a comparison in something that's incomparable.

2) Only listened the first 10 seconds of each song. If you do that then, yes, Shinigami will sound a lot like Dragonforce - fast paced drum and SID that sounds like Li tapping. If they listened to the rest of the song they'd notice it's completely different.


Gratz on being on P3 - didn't know what that was but it's sounds like a big deal :)

True on the review thing. I honestly believe that many reviewers don't actually sit down and listen to the album, just listening to it once or twice through speakers and writing the review meanwhile. (This is not just for the Masu album, this is reviewers in whole.)

And P3 is one of the biggest radio stations in Sweden. :)

I can see where the DF reference comes from... the fast drum sections and synth'd sounds inside them are not dissimilar. That said, I wouldn't have drawn the comparison myself.

Also, the SNES-like synth starting about 1:52 reminds me incredibly of TMNT for the SNES.

Shinigami has pushed Forced Feedback aside and taken the throne as my favorite for this album.

The possibility that any other song could be MORE awesome is frightening, in the "will the MaSu fans' neighbors survive the sonic onslaught" sense.

Oh yes. This is aural sex. Repeat ad nauseum and not getting old yet.

Less?! How? I can only assume these four songs are the tip of the iceberg of Epic.

The wait, it kills. Slowly.

It's better than not hearing any of it and waiting and entire agonizing month after putting the money down for the pre-order before hearing any of it. They release one song, then we listen a lot, and we get occupied figuring out the lyrics on the forums together, and as soon as we start getting antsy for more, another release, and repeat. At least we get a little new MaSu in our system before the album arrives. I am still mega-hype for the rest though, 9 more songs to hear, wooooo!

Gratz on being on P3 - didn't know what that was but it's sounds like a big deal :)

P3 is Swedish national radio. Being played on P3 is a good way to get into the conciousness of the common populace in Sweden.

To illustrate: the song "Boten Anna" (later released as "Now you're gone" internationally) was released as an IRC in-joke and floated around on the intarwebs for about 6-12 months, before someone at P3 decided to give it some airtime. Just one or two months later of occasional airplay, the song was a national phenomenon which everyone had heard or heard of (although the IRC in-jokes were of course lost on them).

Post by: Amdor on October 24, 2010, 03:45:52 am
The release is approaching fast, so... I've decided to do some pretty much useless statistics!  :P

We have been granted 4 out of 14 tracks, what makes 28,57% of them.
The added duration* of the released songs is 19:46 - the total play lenght of the album is 61:50, so we've heard 31,97% of it.
Imho, that makes a lot...
<stupid>All the song titles combined include 247 characters (w/o spaces). Released ones - 53, which is 19,34% of total.</stupid>

Probably somebody has made one before, but in other case - here's a timer (http://www.timeanddate.com/counters/customcounter.html?day=03&month=11&year=2010&hour=00&min=00&sec=00&p0=239), counting days, hours, minutes and seconds (in different combinations) until the release of the album. I set it for Stockholm time, 00:00 (midnight... or should it be sidnight?).

*Based on the official numbers shown on MaSu site.

So far I've got more kicks out of the few songs I've heard on ze tube than any other release this year, and the year has been like beyond excellent with tons of great albums by some (especially one) really big bands. Seems MaSu are cooking up some pure awesomesauce. Thought I'd just drop in and say that (or the Rocket Dragon forced me to do it).

The song I expect the most is Remnant, but I would like to hear it on the album. Must be a great, epic, heavy concluder, like Reanimator (another March of the Undead...) and/or Empire.

As much as I love the MotU series (now a quadrology), I fear that I hope for it so. It always turns out that the things I expect the most disappoint me the most (eg. Sid Icarus)*... But I suppose it is just me. I'm still waiting and believe in Machinae. :)

Yeah, you can't avoid some measurement noise if somebody goes like "OMG YOU GOTTA LISTEN TO THIS" or if iTunes jumps to a random song or, or, or....

I've now listened to the title song a couple of times and must say I don't like it as much as I like the others so far released.
It doesn't have the impact or exquisite bass guitar loop that Nova prospekt has, the stick in my head hum-along lyrics of Force Feedback or its equally exquisite bass-guitar, the need for me to bop my head up & down on Dragon Rocket.

Probably time to burn me...

But no, for me really, the EotW track just sounds like any other easy listening (wannabe) rock song. Sorry.

I assume you mean The Greatest Show on Earth? I didn't find the album on TPB, so I don't really see how you would have been able to listen to the title track.

And, to me, it sounds epic. ;)

He also referred to Rocket Dragon as Dragon Rocket!

But I kinda agree for The Greatest Show on Earth...that does not mean it is not Epic, but it does not seem like it is "MaSu Epic"....
Title: Re: 4th studio album?
Post by: Muckwuddly on October 28, 2010, 10:45:31 pm
While not epic like Empire, Edge 'n Pearl, etc, The Show is popish like Gimme Moar (sid), Need For Steve, Violator, Seventeen.
MaSu are just doing their thing, they just need to do songs and they'll automatically be awesome. ;)

It has been a long time I have listened to you guys. I like all of your new songs. Gonna order CD and T-Shirt.
Very good guitar playing and robs vocals are really cool. From what I've heard it will be one of the top albums this year (with "The Panic Broadcast")

Yeah, that's the one. I wasn't even into the title, can you imagine, but sorry for that.
Then again, Rocket Dragon, Dragon Rocket... pff... whatever. I'm old. I forget the correct sequence of words. What's your excuse? :P
At least that's a good song, whatever it is called. :)

Heh, it's nice to get a new MaSu t-shirt as well. My elite shirt is like completely destroyed... there are a dozen holes in it and the print has faded for like 30%.

Damn, seems like it wore out real quick compared to my Metallica T-shirt from about 12 years back, and it's just getting to that condition you describe. My MaSu hoodie still rocking strong, though it is seasonal wear.

What I reallllly want and would wear daily is a MaSu hat. Just a black hat with the logo in white on the front, thats it. Would buy that soooo fast. *wink wink, nudge nudge*

The only problem is my head is really small and most hats lately have been using that "flex" style which never will fit me, I need velcro or fabric strap / fastener :(

OK, I revise my view. In the context of the album, this song is great. All on its own it's mwah.
But since I have heard it in the context of the album now, I think it's truly great. :)

Remnant ... Hell what a remake!

By the way, different Windows music players and what they make of this album:
Windows Media Player (on Windows 7 64bit): Unknown artist, unknown album, track 1 to 14. (Yay! :D)
WinAmp (5.572): I see only "Crouching camber hidden sniper" misspelled... camper, not camber, whomever has access to the DB Winamp gets its info from. ;)
CD-Ex 1.51 and 1.70b: All spelled correctly.

No, I didn't know that.

But even then, if it is a continuation, you can also see it as a remake. As the main tune comes back all the time. Now, even if you go from II to IV, that can be seen as a remake, trying another way to use the song.. no, trying another way to use the tune.

Perhaps compare it to that whole album by Oasis of which all songs sounded just about the same, and where the next album you got of them they sound exactly the same as the last album. (used "you" in general, I am not saying you buy Oasis albums)). But then better. And not a whole album.

So yeah, remake. :)

Quite optimistic you are here, sir.
Predicted timeline:
-- (Lulea, Sweden) ------ (Polish Postal Center) ---------------------------*----------------------------------------------------> me
* = a tour across the country and/or idle waiting in a dark corner of an office.
You can literally go postal. I hope that the CD is wrapped in the t-shirt or hoodie...

I can just hope that I'll get the album tomorrow (tuesday).
Oh and btw, today while listening to The Show, I suddenly started dreaming that I was seeing that song live. Needless to say, I got huuuge goosebumps.
Fuck I can't wait 'till 27th. <3

the US Customs Office
Talking about that... my envelope was open. Despite the 5 staples. So someone must have opened it before me.

If US or Canada customs opens it they will reseal it with a bag that has customs labels on it and an inspection notice. If there is no bag you are just shit house lucky nothing fell out because it opened during transit. This has happened with my two most recent orders from the masu shop and somehow nothing fell out of the package. Needs moar tape.

Well, this answers my question. Now I get to silently scream vulgarities at the US Customs Office until it gets here (North-Eastern USA).
I can confirm that one copy reached the Chicago area today, so you shouldn't have to wait too long unless your local office is really slow.

EDIT:  Cybergenesis just made me put my book down.

Could you keep some distance please, I do not like your constant breathing down my neck.

Just remember, people around here come from far and between to tell the group they admire and the other admirers that they admire the group and their music. They'll tell them in their own words how they like them, which music they like best, which song makes them drool more than the other, etc. They'll have their own opinion about a lot of things. What they then don't need is someone on the forums telling them how to believe, how to listen, how to like, how to and what to drool to. And please keep in mind that other people have their own opinions, their own thoughts and their own style of posting and living. You do not have to think for me, post for me or teach me how to post in your own (rather annoying) style.  That's what you're doing. Stop it. I'm old and wise enough to know my own things, without you needing to hold my hand in any way or form.

Please go annoy someone else.

The funny thing is, I didn't actually read his reply - I read the first line, realised it was a personal attack/rant thing, then skipped it. Whatevs, it's unneeded on the forums - especially the band section.

I propose that the discussion about the album move to another thread which I'm about to create. This one has probably overstayed it's welcome, and seeing as the album is released, we need to get on to actually discussing the new songs in detail.
