PostSubject: Virgin Black Are Alive!   Thu Aug 30, 2018 2:09 pm

For the past few weeks, Virgin Black's facebook page has been posting images of milestones throughout their career, working up from their beginnings to the present.  Today a new picture and "2018" was posted.  Oh man I am stoked.  I'm really hoping we'll finally get to hear Pianissimo!

I love that everyone on their page is going nuts over this, but they have no idea what it means.  I too hope it means Pianissimo is soon forthcoming.

With the time lapsed between their last album, you'd think they were a DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM band  Very Happy

Did you guys catch the fine print?  Where they said the new album will go in more J-Pop direction?

Har harrrrrrrrrrrr.....................  Razz Fight

I am curious whether they'll be making new music too and if so, what direction they'll go.  No VB album is like another, though they do all have a distinct sound unique to VB.

Slacker!  Razz   Mine shipped almost two weeks ago so I'm eagerly expecting it any day now...

I was torn on the shirts and ended up not ordering one.  Even though I'd love to rep one of my absolute favorite bands, I don't really love either of the designs.

Now who's the slacker.  I bet you probably didn't even see them when they were stateside a few years back  Wink

Ha, yeah I am a bit of a slacker I suppose...  I do own two or three of their other shirts but they're all very old and worn out now...  Eh if they come out with some new designs I would love to pick one up.  But I DID see them back in 2008 or so when they toured with Amorphis and Samael!

I have to admit I've heard the name...

But alas I have never heard their music...  listening to something on YouTube... intriguing...

Sombre Romantic...

Oh dude you have been missing out!  They're one of my absolute favorite bands.  If you're just exploring their stuff... know that each album is quite different from the last.  Definitely try a sampling from all of their albums.  In brief, I'd describe them as:

Sombre Romantic - gothic metal with a lot of industrial and black metal influences

Elegant... And Dying - the most "pure" gothic metal of their albums

Requiem Mezzo Forte - a masterpiece of gothic metal and classical music combined

Requiem Fortissimo - doom/death metal and classical music combined

Requiem Pianissimo - no metal, all classical instrumentation

Hmm, so a goth/symphonic Babymetal.

LOL.  Virgin Black is one of those bands that even if they DID (heaven forbid...) release a J-Pop/Babymetal/whatever album... I'd probably still buy it.

What I like is when My Dying Bride said that Virgin Black out-My-Dying-Bride My Dying Bride.  That's saying something.

I just got an email explaining that the "order completed" (which I read as "shipped") really just meant that the payment has been processed.  I apologize for any confusion...

Dear Kerrick,

A friend of the band has alerted me to some confusion expressed on forums regarding availability of pre-ordered Requiem - Pianissimo CDs, and your forum name appears to be aligned with an order (I apologise if this is incorrect). As stated on the webstore the expected shipping date is November 30. I believe the confusion may have arisen due to the auto-generated wording of the transaction software. "Order completed" in this situation means simply that payment has been processed.

My apologies on behalf of the band, and all involved. It would be much appreciated if you were able to share the clarification with any others that hold concerns.

Thank you for your support of Virgin Black.

I thought I remember it saying that you'd get an email when it had been shipped.  So if I haven't received the email, I shouldn't be expecting it.  But that's just me  Very Happy
