Nice :D two or three Linoleum songs on RS2, I'm really happy that it wasn't worthless that I resisted listening to Linoleum at all

NecessaryPain

So it's 2012 before RS2 will be released?

That's very disappointing if true.

Lynxo

Very, very disappointing that they drag it out so much. One double album, reduced to two albums and one EP dragged out over two and a half years. Road Salt One wasn't bad, but I want the next chapter!

From Daniel's blog (one of 'em...):

"Alright, I have remixed Gone and added some expansion to The Deeper Cut. Remains to see if I'll rework If You Wait or not..."

Adami

I didn't hear anything wrong with Gone or If You Wait, or even Mortar Grind from the EP. I actually liked all of those way more than Linolium. :(

It is kind of disappointing given what we were expecting, but if you put it like this it's actually not that bad. 2 albums and an EP in 3 years. Plently of bands do much worse than that.

Lynxo

I do see where you're coming from. But in my mind, they have played out this playful, 70ths type of sound/look by now. They should move on to new territories.

Also, WHAT THE FUCK happened to the video Daniel said were almost finished several months ago? I'm sorry, PoS is a great band with many great albums. But I don't feel like they take particular good care of their fans. Maybe I'm spoiled by DT, but having screenshots from a video, telling the fans it's almost finished and then never mention it again is just stupid.

wolfking

Is that the one with him covered in blood?

I'm assuming that it's going to become another "Ending Theme" for no particular reason.  


Or the label finally realized that this whole video was bound to fail and was a waste of money from a financial standpoint.  
Still, if Daniel has it, what the hell is he waiting for to release it?  


Or it could be personal reasons, of course. 


wolfking

I think Lynxo's point was, no matter what they decide to do with it, the fans should be updated.  If Daniel has decided not to release it, the fans should be told straight up.

Lynxo

Exactly. It isn't the first time I've felt a lack of communcation with the fans from Daniel. Which is strange, considering the ridicoulus amounts of blogs he has...

ariich

I don't see the big deal, if they release it, great; if not, oh well, there's so much other stuff going on in the world of music.

True, I couldn't care less if I never see it, but we should at least know what might happen with it.

Anyway, I just heard a couple of POS bonus tracks.  Time Weaver's Tale is fucking amazing!!

From Daniel's Facebook page:

"The last week I have re-recorded parts of Mortar Grind and remixed the song from scratch to fit Road Salt Two. I have also remixed Gone. I like what I hear! :)

To those who have requested the insane: No, I will most definitely not extend If You Wait, that would be an utter offense to the song's very nature!

Yes, Road Salt Two WILL be in a mean, close and painfully dry 70s-on-steroids style like Road Salt One, maybe a bit darker but it's hard to tell for sure until it's all done.

Where It Hurts video released globally within the next 2 weeks!

Album will be all done (mix, mastering, artwork) in mid-May, release in September, tour in Oct/Nov/Dec (dates are being booked right now).

Some additional exclusive show dates are secretly being planned for spring and early summer, I'll keep you posted regarding this.

:)

Hugs,
Daniel"

:D Just as we were talking about that video. :P

wolfking

That's.....umm.....shit......freaky......I'm scared!  :(

ClairvoyantCat

Good to know that he hasn't abandoned Where it Hurts, but SHIT!  That's a looong wait for Road Salt Two.  Assuming that it isn't postponed, which it most likely will be. 

wolfking

Yeah, hopefully we get it before 2012.  It's six months overdue already.  :lol

I'm looking forward to it being darker too.  I'm happy with the 70's style, but I hope Daniel gets this out of his system.

These days I revisited the good parts of BE, namely Iter Impius and Of Summer Rain (don't remember the latin name). Sooooooooooo good.

I visit the good parts of BE all the time.  It starts from the Animae Partus and goes all the way through to Animae Partus II.

Six months? Remember when it was supposed to be a double album release? And even then, RS1 was greatly delayed. This album has been on the shelf for ages.

wolfking

Shit, I never knew it was suppose to be a double album.  :lol

SoundscapeMN

September..kind of funny how Road Salt or whatever other title they were going to call it, was potentially going to be released the fall of 2009, lol.

ClairvoyantCat

Ok. I'm just copying this from another forum, but..




Next week, Tuesday and Friday, Daniel will attend the morning show "Efter tio" on TV4 to talk crap and play music. The theme is apparently arachnophobia. Oh, well.

For the Swedish-impaired who still want to simply look at the man, possibly covered in spiders, hopefully not playing Road Salt for the millionth time, you will be able to catch it online at www.tv4play.se

The exact address and a transcript will be provided once the shows have been uploaded.




NecessaryPain

Is RS2 this September, or next?

Crow

Okay, so I'm trying to find a write-up detailing the points on BE's concept. I remember seeing one somewhere before but can't find it, if anyone can be of assistance it'd be appreciated.

I was relistening to some of the older PoS albums recently.  Still baffled how people consider One Hour By the Concrete Lake to be in the same league quality-wise with their other stuff.  That album's pretty bad.

I can hear quite a bit of bass on anything Kristoff played on. He's more present on the first two albums, but he's there on everything else.

true. the mix isnt bad at all on the 3rd thru 5th albums. but i love that extra 'pop' the bass had before TPE.

That album is pretty fucking amazing actually.
