It was eh, the songs I hadn't heard were about as fun as the material on Ode aux Années Froides, or slightly less so. Hope we wont have to wait another 7 years for his split with Blessed in Sin, judging from the samples it will be pretty good.
Those Opposed Records answered that this should have been 3 years ago but due to other people being slow they just dropped it. Instead it seems to be that Dernier Bastion will release the split in a couple of months.
I don't even know where to buy that fucking split. The split with Gorgon should have been re-released in 2009 by Blazing Productions. I emailed them in early 2009 and asked when the split will come out and they said it would be the next release they're going to distribute. Nothing happened for the whole year, so last January I asked them again and got no answer. Funnily enough, the O.T.A.L./Gorgon split is the only release that's highlighted in gray and it only says "TO BE RELEASED BY THOSE OPPOSED RECORDS". I didn't find anything on the TOR site, though. Gonna ask 'em, if they're really going to release that split.
I messaged Hunferd on myspace but he hasn't replied yet, seems he was away for some time and just got back to a ginourmous stack of mail. I do remember him mentioning the split with Gorgon still being available at some distro ca 2008.
