Long Distance Calling - Long Distance Calling (2011) (1.0)

12/21/10 4:17AM

I know it's a few days late, but here's the track list and artwork, trailer along with more about it.

1. Into The Black Wide Open
2. The Figrin D'an Boogie
3. Invisible Giants
4. Timebends
5. Arecibo (Long Distance Calling)
6. Middleville
7. Beyond The Void

LONG DISTANCE CALLING push the envelope even further this time out with the surprise guest appearance by Armored Saint/ex-Anthrax vocalist John Bush on “Middleville”.

However, John Bush’s guest-appearance is not the only reason that should encourage people to check out LONG DISTANCE CALLING.
In times of overproduction and compression in order to get a pumped up sound LONG DISTANCE CALLING went for the opposite and worked on an organic production that allows their music to breathe. Hence, the audiophile quintet headed to Hours Studios in Hannover where Celtic Frost, Donots, Paradise Lost, Eloy, Scorpions, Rolling Stones and many more produced some of their classic albums.
The self-titled album was recorded with Benjamin Schäfer who has worked with diverse bands such as Celtic Frost and Subway To Sally.
The result is a production that allows each instrument to unfold its unique sound and its waves to travel the air.
Instead of just cutting your eardrums it’s a 3d sound that surrounds you like a cozy cocoon.

After supporting bands such as Opeth, Katatonia, Dredg, labelmates And You Will Know Us By Trail Of Dead, Anathema, Coheed And Cambria, and Deftones they will finally play their own club shows again in order to give people the full audio-visual experience of “Long Distance Calling”:
