Abominable Putridity announce rather ridiculous new (vocal) lineup

So, apparently Abominable Putridity, everyone's favorite Russian slammers, were either trolling the slam scene or were just confused and seeking direction when they announced that Cameron "Big Chocolate" Argon would be the new vocalist for the band some time last year. This disappointed more people than I can even count at this time, and the rumors kept being confirmed with various pictorial evidence posted by the band themselves on last.fm and the official forums. It seemed likely that, indeed, a *gasp* deathcore vocalist masquerading as a "slam/brutal death metal" vocalist by doing boring, one-dimensional exhales, usually unhelpfully backed by a completely equally boring, equally one-dimensional group of other instrument-players, would become the vocalist of the spearheads of Russia's hallowed slam scene. As you can tell, this would rightfully anger quite a few people.

BUT, there has been good news announced quite recently. Here's a quote posted by Sergey of AP on their official forums.

"
We are going to make 2 song promos when we will have it professionally mixed and mastered in USA...So be patient... i promise that all you guys will like this album, we spend about half of year to record it and make songs powerfull and tight as hell, and this material is waaaayy different from the first one, as for vocals Matti leads on all tracks, other guys making back vocals on 4 tracks (2 songs with Corey, 1 with Aj and 1 with Angel), album will have 8 tracks total..."

Anyway, since you're probably shitting yourself in excitement right now, here's a picture for some more pictorial evidence. This time it's actually exciting, we promise.

From L to R, that's Angel Ochoa (Condemned, Cephalotripsy), Matti Way (of Pathology, Cinerary, Liturgy and Disgorge fame), AJ Magana (Defeated Sanity, ex-Disgorge, Deprecated) and Corey Athos (Flesh Consumed).

holy shitting fuck.

that is all.

HELL YEAH. Never been disappointed when Matti way is on vocals.

Holy fucking shit, indeed. Corey is probably the most suited for the band, but I can't wait to hear them all. I hope AJ turns out good (not like on new DS, but more like on Consume the Forsaken).

I was kind of looking forward to hearing Big C do vocals on this, but this lineup is killer too. Also, I'm pretty sure Big Chocolate's vocals aren't inhales, or boring, but that's just me.

I said they're exhales.

Big C being in AP wasn't just hearsay, he played live with them in russia and there are some leaked demos with his vocal tracks on them as well.

If you watch Big Chocolate's vocal videos on Youtube you see that he is an exellent BDM vocalist (no Deathcore).
This "trveness" makes me sick and is just childish.
