killer_roach;4268784 said:Yeah, if you didn't like Polaris, I doubt Elysium will be your bag. They tried to imitate the style of similar Japanese artists by throwing some slower songs and ballads in there, but the band (in particular the vocalist) is not particularly adept at it. If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, I'd probably suggest just going to the source and listening to an X Japan album instead.
Swedish heavy metallers Portrait have tapped Nicke Andersson (Imperial State, Death Breath, Entombed, The Hellacopters) to mix their second full-length album, "Crimen Laesae Majestatis Divinae," at Deuce Studio. The CD is currently being recorded at Necromorbus Studio in Alvik, Sweden for an early 2011 release via Metal Blade Records.

afterstasis;4276910 said:It is always nice when the longest song on an album is also by far the best.
