Really cool Cirith Ungol article here:

Thanks for the link Aiden, that was a fine piece of writing & a great little primer for the uninitiated.
I particularly enjoyed his description of Tim Baker's vocals "sounding like some sort of lunatic half-man half-hawk that’s dealing out warning shots from a burning pulpit". :lol:
Barking mad, but oddly accurate.

Tim said it best himself. "I just yell at people."

Thanks for posting the Last Rites article - good read.

Agreed on the sound of the LP - I am not happy with that. The guitars should be loud and clear, not muddled up, like they are there. I am very happy with everything else though. Good to great songs, arrangements are great, the artwork is to die for and Tim's singing is as good as anything he has ever done before.

Is the sound on the CD release noticeably better? If so, I will have to buy it

It is. :(

Is it just me, or does the album sound quite bad on vinyl? It’s very muddy and lacks clarity and punch. I suspect Metal Blade just put the CD master on vinyl. Certainly no “mastered FOR VINYL by Patrick Engel at Temple of Disharmony” declaration on this release. I redeemed my download code and indeed, the bloody MP3’s sound better!

I practically gave up buying new recordings on vinyl 10+ years ago because they usually sounded inferior to the CD’s, but I thought the industry had long since realized records aren’t souvenirs but people actually buy them to listen to. :cry:
I don't hear a lot of difference in sound between the vinyl and the download ; both sound very 'muffled' to my ears. A damn shame! I wonder if the CD-version sounds better :?: ... However, musically I think "Forever Black" is a great record. Can't stop playing it, and I'm soooo looking forward seeing them on KIT next year (cross fingers...). And by the musical quality of this record, I wouldn't have minded a full set of more 'recent' songs ("Paradise Lost" and onwards), which was the original idea of them headlining both nights I guess.
