Did you know that Kelly Shaefer of Atheist was one of 6 singers considered by Velvet Revolver?
I didn't think that someone else on this board would know that, hah. I am obsessed with Atheist. Such a great band, and puts on a hell of a live show, even today.
I'm sure you know this already, but Florida's finest is working on a new album.
Vocalist Kelly Shaefer of legendary technical death metal band Atheist has issued the following update about new Atheist material:
"[I'm] heading to Atlanta next Friday to jam with Atheist drummer and my best friend Mr. Steve Flynn, this will mark the first time we have written together since 1991's 'Unquestionable Presence'. So I am curious how it will sound. I know it will be sick, there is a formula that me and Flynn have that automatically sounds like Atheist...so it will be fun to hear what it will sound like. And who knows? If it it goes well...?? We will see what happens."
If they could top Unquestionable Presence... eh, I shouldn't expect the unrealistic.
Yeah, I heard this one. I'm a bit skiddish about this, since I didn't even think Kelly could still manage to play guitar like he used to given his carpal tunnel. Atheist is my favorite band, followed by Cynic, so to hear about both of them making/possibly making new albums is great, but I'm still a little apprehensive, given their respective legacies.
On a side note, the band Quo Vadis, I'm not sure if you listen to them or not, officially disbanded yesterday. The Montreal tech-death scene is getting hard lately, with Cryptopsy's god-awful new album, and then this. Looks like its up to Martyr and Negativa to deliver some good news.
Habeus Corpus is for suckaz!
