I wonder if the track "Ultra Silvam" is some traditional or folk cover... It's a beautiful track.

No, it's not a folk cover.



So it's their own composition?

Yep, completely. To me, it's reminiscent of The Doors and Fields of the Nephilim.

Is it possible to pay through Euro bank transfer? Experiencing some problems with Paypal at the moment...

Absolutely. No problem at all.

The t shirt and hood are exclusive to Invictus and won't be available on the tour.

Henry, I might have a shirt left when you're here. What size?

I'm sure IB will have merch.


I usually wear size S here so I guess size M in Europe? Thanks!

I'm on my third listen right now. I really like all the components, but the progressive parts often tend to be nothing more than mere (albeit well-done) decorations on a borderline generic Metal foundation. A lot of the songs seem a bit underdeveloped really. It's hardly a riff-fest at all, and maybe it wasn't meant to be. But I for one would have liked the riffs to be in the same league as the leads. An album full of great ideas, but also one that lacks in the most basic areas.

Yeah, not sure what to think yet. Tons of Watain influence (not straight rip off, but...) and it hasn't really grabbed ahold of me. Will give it a another try.

When I first heard the sample tracks I wasn't too impressed, but listening to them in the context of the album they make much more sense. Very impressive record, if a bit long. The best songs however are definitely the more epic and developed ones. I hope with the next record they take a real step into the unknown, and pursue this direction, as their more straight ahead material just doesn't quite have the bite that it needs to have. Looking forward to spinning this a lot more...

And the instrumental work is fantastic; really creative and interesting players all round, aside from the vocals, which are a little generic.

I wanted a "The Horror" pt. II as that one reminded me a lot to early MERCILESS...and that was an easy way to go...and then they decided to take a bit different path...and if there was a band able to succeed it was TRIBULATION...this album will be a referencein years to come...now, the usual NWN! forum questions...when will be the vynil version? And who carries the CD in the US of A? A metal salute to INVICTUS for releasing this one...another fine addition to a great catalogue...

The layout isn't complete yet but I would hope it will go to press next month (once we're all agreed, of course).

AJNA is handling the US release of it and will co-release the vinyl of it with Invictus as well.

Tour shirt was available only on the tour. I have an exclusive shirt and hoody design available from the web store for pre-order (waiting on them from the printer currently).

Anyone waiting on a pre order for other shirts, I'm working through em since yesterday as quickly as I can. Sent a mass email to people today letting everyone know that they're being sent out along with orders received when I was on the tour.

Ordered.

From what I heard, it seems really interesting and good. Some lead guitars reminded me of Sabbat (japan).

The "dancing" riffs toward the end of Wanderer in outer darkness reminds me of Satyricon as well.

SHIT, I WANT THOSE GOD DAMNED SHIRTS. TRIBULATION DOES NOT ANSWER ON FB.

(I already pre-ordered the hoodie)

I haven't given it as many listens as I'd want to yet cos I'm waiting until I buy it, but you are wrong mister. I believe this album was never supposed to be a riff-fest, nor was it meant to focus on the progressive parts solely; its magic's found in the production and how everything sounds incorporated. Personally, I consider it a masterpiece, Tribulation is the only band out there who managed to fuel their death metal music with a prog touch without losing its primal edge. How many bands can you think of, who accomplished such a perfectly balanced mix of influences? I don't think there's any other.

Kinda same here, i even agree on most of things... expect couple of details like i think to get labeled "masterpiece" music must past time-test, and "only band out there who managed" is also a bit too loud words.
