    Sigil 04_: Welcome oblivion

    Welcome Oblivion


    In case Amazon takes it down, here are the details: $42.21 (ouch!) import CD from Japan, release date is March 12, no tracklist yet (although I think we already know it).

    If it's the album, I hope it's better than both EPs combined together. I'm not saying both EPs are unlistenable, but the actual album should be BIG!

    Tracklist

    Welcome oblivion:
    CD:
    01 The wake-up
    02 Keep it together
    03 And the sky began to scream
    04 Welcome oblivion
    05 Ice age
    06 On the wing
    07 Too late, all gone
    08 How long?
    09 Strings and attractors
    10 We fade away
    11 Recursive self-improvement
    12 The loop closes
    13 Hallowed ground


    Vinyl:
    01 The wake-up
    02 Keep it together
    03 And the sky began to scream
    04 Ice age
    05 Welcome oblivion
    06 On the wing
    07 Too late, all gone
    08 The province of fear
    09 How long?
    10 Strings and attractors
    11 Recursive self-improvement
    12 Unintended consequences
    13 We fade away
    14 The loop closes
    15 Hallowed ground

    So the name hasn't changed since the last leak - I wonder if the art etc is all finalised then, and they really are just sitting on it for label reasons?

    Good to see that CDs are being pressed. Hopefully they will be in the States as well...

    So it's finally ok to talk about this without overzealous SPOILER tags?


    EDIT: Anyway, it's cool that the title is confirmed, because that was the one thing that I still saw some people skeptical about. Someone even told me there was no evidence of the title on Last.FM.

    When it was on Last.Fm, that was a mistake on part of the band. When it's on Amazon, it's a label screwup and ETS loves blaming labels/

    I kind of wish that the tracks that were on the EP were just on the EP. Hopefully though the tracks will at least be mixed somewhat differently on the album. I mean, not that I think that those tracks are mixed badly, but I want a reason to continue listening to the EP on its own.

    2 tracks from the EP are not on the album, in case you didn't notice.

    I wish I was more excited for this. I wouldn't miss out on it, but more out of a feeling of long-time fan obligation than real excitement for what they've come up with.

    Sweet. Thanks for the heads up. Hope for the official announcement and maybe some new artwork soon. Really didn't expect any news this soon at all

    Not sure how I feel about KIT opening the album, if the tracklist is accurate (which it most likely is). Ah well. I'm liking those track lengths a whole lot, though. Double-LP time.

    One of my favorite too
    No problem. That makes the EP special for me and a 'stand alone' as vinyl!
    If it was me who could decide, the new full album would contain complete new tracks...

    Luckily (or maybe not) my two least favourite tracks from the ep as well, rarely listen to to them already. Great to have a concrete release date at last.

    you have a point there! Never even thought about it that way, I don't know where my head is at...

    Love those song titles. Brilliant.

    I'm willing to bet this is legit. I didn't expect it so early but I see no reason why it couldn't be seeing as it's finished and everything

    Yes very interesting. I understand how there is a process for artists & having their material submitted, approved & listed on Amazon but there must be a "Do not make product visible" option when Amazon does this stuff... or a "Publish on this date xx.xx.xxx" option. This way as I see it now, with no real info or album cover, just looks like a web developer doing a shitty job. If this is not HTDAs intention then I would be on the phone.

    If this is legit then yea, it generates a small buzz but I think it's nothing compared to how people would react if HTDA was leaking the info bit by bit & hitting us with teasers. We like to figure things out as if it were a puzzle... right?

    I do wish that there were more images, snippets and even tweets from HTDA... setting an atmosphere for the group and the LP; and follow up to the EP... it's as if the band vanished. (Understanding the recent holidays as a factor)

    --edit--
    i get it, but i also enjoy large amount of music which i knew nothing in advance, and "the need to be teased" is such a caprice

    Things and people, or in this case the band, can vanish leaving artifacts behind (something made or given shape by man). You're thinking I said "... it's as if HTDA in its whole entirety and material vanished". I also paraphrased by explaining "setting an atmosphere for the group and the LP; and follow up to the EP"

    My apologies if you didn't understand my post, I do rant and misuse semicolons often.

    They haven't vanished. There was a Soft Moon remix in mid-December, and Q has been posting photos on Twitter since after New Year's. They're certainly not going to keep up Omen-release levels of activity until mid-March, especially when you consider that members of the band have other projects that demand their attention.

    Bring on the official site/band pre-orders. Hoping for an awesome super-duper deluxe package with all kinds of bells and whistles. Real bells and whistles!
