I'm still trying to figure out the Burning The Masses thing. Is Big Chocolate still in Disfiguring The Goddess too, or no?

Anyway, good to see King Conquer got signed and the new Demon Hunter album is going to be really good. Don't know about new Veil Of Maya though. That song just sounds like something from their last album, but with better production.

It'd make sense since the original lineup is playing together again. They actually have a show in Montreal on March 12th.

Does a band really need three guitarists like in the case of King Conquer?
