"We're extremely proud to announce that the one and only Johan Liiva (former ARCH ENEMY, HEARSE, KDF) will be doing guest vocals on the song 'In The End' from the upcoming fifth th album 'The Arrogance Of Ignorance'.
We think that Johan has one of the most characteristic voices in Metal music EVER and we all worship the work he's already done (the 'Burning Bridges' album of ARCH ENEMY was a big influence for us all)!
Goddamn, what a great way to start the weekend!"
Vocalist Tijs Vanneste of Belgian progressive metallers OCEANS OF SADNESS has issued the following update:
"At this time we've finished about 75% of the new material for a fifth album and you may call us fools if these songs don't rock like burning hell! This is again a big step in the unpredictable evolution of your favourite Belgian brass band."
"In the second half of March 2008 we'll pay the smelliest of smelly, Sir Jens Bogren at Fascination Street studios in Örebro, Sweden another visit in his dark cave and won't return to civilization before we clensed our souls from every possible stain. But before that we'll be doing two more supports for EPICA in The Netherlands and in February we'll do three headlining shows in Italy." More...

Anyways, this is the chance to prove that Belgian headbangers bang the best to a Belgian headbanging metal band!" More...
