Isn't Hyperion the name of Eric Park's other band too?

Really looking forward to seeing Prophecy by the way, and Carnal Decay again.

Yeah, there's a Manc show booked on September 23rd and a Southend show booked on the 21st. Not sure what the full line-ups are for either yet.

Think there's a couple of other bands called that as well.

Ha no worries man, it was well deserved. I was blown away by how powerful you guys sounded and that had a lot to do with your drumming.

Shame I had to miss Prophecy due to the late starting but Carnal Decay and Rottenness were awesome.

i'd say it was all a bit average in Manchester tbh...

Rottenness get respect for being so damn enthusiastic and fun-lovin guys, but the music didn't seem to translate that well through the mangy Manc PA.

Carnal Decay and Dull Beyond Boring were bland and I left before Prophecy mainly to avoid a two hour early morning bus ride home, so can't comment on them

Cerebral Bore were the only band I saw that actually made your ears prick up and interest you. Sounding pretty cool actually, kinda like old Gorerotted on steroids and the resultant man-rage.
would have bought something but didn't spot owt.

CORPSING !!!!!!
gotta love The Wizzard + The Baron combo, what a team!

honestly, those guys have so much potential, they really should be taking some time off lounging about and getting a 10 date UK tour across the country, let people find out about them.

they can really win fans from their live performances!! (that's a quite rare gift, in my view)


P.S. Only comment is that you could benefit from tightening up the guitar sounds. A lot of the detail and precision in the riffs get lots in the necro bm sound. my £0.02

thanks for your 2pence. you're spot on there. i knew the guitars werent loud enough when i was behind my kit, i wanted to crank em up but the stack on my right was maxed out apparently...anyway

we WILL be gigging more often dont worry. just been a very slow summer. mostly due to people going back to their home-lands (Italy and Gibraltar).

thanks very much for your view on our performance. appreciate it!

I heard the new Corpsing album recently and was really impressed. It was nice to hear someone doing something more original in brutal DM, and I liked the ambient elements too! Hopefully you guys will play something more northernly (or I could arrange something) at some point?

Me being me, that's too northern haha. Transport is a bit of a bitch for me at the moment! I could see if we could arrange a gig Birmingham or Stoke way at some point though. If you want to PM me a contact address, I'll see what I can do!

Will do mate, I'd like to catch you guys, even better if I put it on! I might even need a second band haha! Cruciamentum is gonna become (temporarily) inactive after we've played London, we're having a miserable time finding new musicians and it's costing too much to rent a practice room between three people!

If that did happen, I'm afraid it's not going to happen this year or next. I'm too busy with college and other commitments to start working on that again. We wouldn't perform it live anyway, Ulf lives in Sweden, and I've had enough of playing live with a drum machine.

I should come to Hertfordshire then! I'm actually looking to move in the next year or so and go into buisness doing musical things, so I need to start looking for places with a good scene!

well as i said theres loads of players, but alot of them are crap. just here playing an instrument is definitely the chosen hobby. ive noticed that theres more bands than fans! theres too much musical snobbery with hardly any real people who just want to hear music rather than sit there commenting on every note. make sense?

alot of pretty big bands have come from here actually. seems to be the breeding pool!

Sounds like a town of Dream Theater fans! Haha! But yeah, I know what you mean, it still sounds better than here though. There's plenty of fans here, but everyone is more than content to go to the same old rock nights to hear the same Korn and Machine Head songs as they listen to at home all the time, and they're more than happy to just worship/ass kiss the hordes of generic Slayer/Metallica/Lamb of God rip offs, rather than having a go themselves, or learning about new music. Saying that, the scene is really dying here now - local support is diminishing even for the bigger bands, and all but one of the live music venues have closed or opted to change for "rock club" nights instead, but from what I hear this has started to happen all over the country... I guess taking that into consideration it's understandable that a band who is mainly influenced by cult or demo stage early 90s death metal isn't getting much interest from locals. Perhaps we should change to sound like Job For A Cowboy or Waking the Cadaver ;)

basically yeah. my local club isnt bad. its on the touring circuit for bands and we do have allocated metal nights. infact we got Ephel Duath down the other month and quite a few other known acts. not all is lost!

but yeah you're right about all these slayer/metallica/lamb of god ass kissers. i played a show in Islington, London the other week with another one of my bands and the band on before us had some pretty fucking good contacts considering the vocalist was the son of Bruce Dickinson, and he was in the audience. but guess what.....it was the same old crappy boring riffs, same old song-writing style which we hear these days. you know what i mean. every songs got to have a little singy bit in it, a catchy chorus, boring verse riffs... basically some half-arsed excuse for metal.

why dont people make some effort!! jesus. no wonder metals dying when it comes to local-scenes. its cos people just copy their favourite lamb of god/killswitch engage/trivium album and expect everyone to love it.

AND whats with all the breakdowns??? i swear some songs have so many break downs i might aswel call the AA.
