Well it's been fully recorded and I think it's mixed the other day when I was talking to Olof he was doing the layout for the CD book. I think it's just the cover art that they're having problems with.

Exciter "Thrash, Speed, Burn" and Portrait "s/t" are the only good ones I heard this far.

The most immortal lyric line of 2008 so far is "the antichrist will immortalize".

I gotta hear Portrait! I have heard the songs on the myspace and they rule. I agree that "Hornets of the Pogrom" is some top notch material.

I'm not really familiar with that Enforcer, but I'll be sure to check out their new album if it blows away Portrait. :)

www.myspace.com/enforcerswe is a good start but it's missing a lot of material I've come to love.

Heavy Metal Perse - Heavy Metal Perse (A Finnish outfit that play some really, really catchy melodies). So far, this is myfavourite album this year.

The new Opeth is good. But I think I might need a few more listens to form a solid opinion of it...

On first impression, the new Meshuggah album is quite cool. Hardly Corroseum material, of course.

right now im listening to the lastest Pharaoh album, and although i liked more the other ones, i think its a pretty cool album! plus it had a patch! :D (thanks to fucken chavez-SM who bought it for me at KIT)

on the swedish side, i think Insolitude debut is gonna blow portrait and enforcer easily 8)

keen to hear this Falcon album too - I have the S/T album and while its a bit patchy you can see its heading in the right direction (lyrics are kitsch as fuck tho!)

I didn't do too much spins of the PORTRAIT LP, so I won't give any opinion, but I'm glad people here told about Hornets of the Pogrom , which is already in the path of being a masterpiece. This one is even better in terms of compositions than Incorrigible Bigotry. Only PAGAN ALTAR can surpass them if they release a new album this year. The rest may be excellent or even genius, but not as godly.
