I'd love for him to consider releasing his old albums together even if combined into a signle package.

Then again, I'd kill for a hard copy of his mellower shit under BM Sharp as well.
i'll try to find the CD he sent me way back in like 05. find it. rip it.

Looks like Ben released two new samples from the upcoming album. I absolutely love the way the guitars sound on this. Very exciting!

"I’ve gotten some emails from people asking about what’s been going on on my end (also if I’m still breathing), so here’s a little what’s what concerning what my plans are at the moment.

I’m done writing the new release, but I’m doing things differently this time. Since my schedule has been a bit busier this year I just haven’t had the time to sit down at 9 am and get up at 8 pm, starving and dehydrated but finished with an entire song. I’ve been writing in bits and pieces, not worrying about whether it’s perfect or about anything other than song structure. I finished the actual writing process about three weeks ago and in my spare time I’m listening to everything over and over again, taking notes and thinking about how everything should fit together.

I’ve even been jamming things out with my drummer BFF, recording those sessions and using them as reference for programming the drums. After that I re-record all the guitars, trying to get them as close to awesome as possible without using any computer trickery. I’m really trying to take my time and make sure that the final product is as good as I can make it.

If I had to sum up what things sound like I would use the words GUITARS and LOUD. Hell of a lot of guitars on this album. Like 6 tracks of lead guitars. If you read about how Butch Vig recorded Siamese Dream I’m basically trying to copy that—which should tell you something else about how it will sound. I’m using almost no reverb or compression. Oh and LOUD. It’s probably the loudest album yet which is ironic because it’s also the quietest. For you audio nerds, the quiet parts are around -10dB and the loud parts top out at ~-1dB. All that means is that it’s fairly dynamic and I’m not trying to squeeze everything as far as it will go. My goal is that when you TURN IT UP it will sound like you’re listening to a band play awesome music in an awesome space—not listening to a guy punch in and out until everything is perfect and the waveform looks like a brick. Personal preference.

There are seven tracks, it will probably be about 40-45 minutes. The longest track is 10 minutes long. I’m using a Telecaster and a Jazz Bass in standard tuning (except drop D). As I mentioned previously, you will definitely hear the Siamese Dream/You’d Prefer an Astronaut influence. But it’s also definitely post-Beacons Cloudkicker. There’s no china cymbal at all or passages that require a calculator and an excel spreadsheet (yes I’ve done that), but you can count the 4/4 parts on one hand. You might not even notice the odd timing parts, but they’re there. And in the midst of all the mid-90s arena-shoegaze will also be wacky influences like Steve Reich, Arvo Pärt, Hans Zimmer and Battles.

When? Right now I’m aiming for late September/early October. It will probably be before that but I don’t want to rush anything.

Thanks for all the emails and for constantly reminding me why this is so much fun. I’m not trying to be weird and withhold anything like I’m some kind of big deal, I just really want you to get it all at once—I think it will be more fun that way.

Oh also pretty soon I’m going to start selling the older shirt designs again. Remember that tan-colored one with all the triangles on it? And the brown one with the explosion thing on it? Yeah those. Except the brown one is now black and silver so all you metalheads can finally buy a shirt (also it looks pretty cool and who doesn’t like variety?)

That’s about it. Thanks again! I really do read all your emails, even if I don’t answer or it takes me two weeks to answer."

Thought the same thing but then I realized that his newer stuff is not as heavy as it was before. The china could easily be replaced by another cymbal such as a splash.

god damn man i hope he doesn't turn his back on heavy stuff all together. i like his softer stuff too, but i think he should have kept on the track of stuff like ]]][[[. I really think that was his best work. Beacons was pretty cool too, but ]]][[[ just blended the heavy and soft stuff soooo damn well.

I still listen to "fourteen nights" almost every day. I'm glad "you and yours" was on his last release. That song along with the clips of the new stuff he posted a month or so ago keep me interested. Even if he does get softer I'm still going to dig it. However, it would be awesome if he did something like Portmanteau or ]]][[[ again.

I still feel that States is highly under appreciated. That riff slams so hard.

Agreed, even though pretty much anything he has written in the last year or so doesn't even mildly resemble djent (thank christ).
