New Eisregen (Icerain) material :D
I think it's enjoyable even without the lyrics, though those are a essential element of Eisregen's style due to the excessive use of repulsive, nauseate writings. The new Eisregen stuff never kept up to their old records since 'Wundwasser' for me, but fans might still give it a try. All of you that don't know Eisregen may want to try 'Krebskolonie' (1998) first, as it was one of the bands greatest records in my opinion.

Digipak will have the Bonustrack `Blut Ist Leben´ (Blood is Life).

The swedish Progressive-Metal band Burst have managed to impress me a great deal with their newest effort "Lazarus Bird". In tradition of "modern" progressive Bands like Isis, Becoming The Archetype or The Ocean these Swedes have composed a truly epic album that combines so many different styles - making it very difficult to classify their music... -
We´ve got some Modern Metal,Post Hardcore, Death Metal,Doom, Progressive Metal, even some Free Jazz passages.
One might think: "oh hell no, not another over-ambitious group that´s trying to grab the listeners attention by combining weird musical genres...."
It turns out to be very different with these guys. Allthough, the extra-long songs, contain many breaks and eccentric passages, the album never loses coherence. Lazarus Bird is complex aswell as groovy and people who enjoy the bands I´ve mentioned above will surely love this record too.
So go and buy this album when it´s out!
Genre: Progressive, Post Hardcore
Origin: Kristinehamn, Sweden
Label: Relapse Records
