MTV showcased the album's brilliance through videos of "Rapture" and "God of Emptiness"--the latter track was made more famous by the nitwit ridicule of "Beavis and Butthead."

Vesperian Sorrow Seeking Second Guitarist

Texas metallers Vesperian Sorrow have checked in with the following update about seeking a new second guitarist:

"Hails all! [HUDSON] here. JZD/Jerry Donahue is no longer a full-time member of Vesperian Sorrow. He has been contributing some killer guest lead work to the new album, but after its release we anticipate some heavy touring, and for that to be possible, a new guitarist is vital.

"Therefore... If you think you've got what it takes (i.e. your own equipment, financial margin for studio rent, a firm grasp on the neoclassical, a sharp aesthetic, a non-piece-of-shit attitude, etc.), please don't hesitate to drop us a line."
