Hot News – Shining's Niklas Kavarforth Comments On Recent Announcement Regarding Next Album

2011. jún 11, 19:56 :

Niklas Kvarforth, founder and front man of Swedish Extreme Metallers SHINING, today issued the following statement regarding the recent announcement by KING DIAMOND guitarist Andy La Rocque that he would be working with the band on the recording of their eighth album at his Sonic Train Studios in Varberg, Sweden.

“The pre-production stage of the new album should more or less be finished in August, and we have booked the studios for the whole of January and February 2012 to complete work on it. It’s an album I’m particularly looking forward to recording because it will give me the chance to work with Andy La Rocque. I am a huge KING DIAMOND fan, and working with Andy was an opportunity I wasn’t going to pass up. He will be attending some of our rehearsals and it will be interesting to see what his input will be to the almost finished album and to SHINING’s particular sound. Whilst we’re there, we also plan to record some covers for future release. As to the direction VIII will take, well, for the time being let’s just say that it will be blacker and more sinister than our previous releases”.

SHINING is set to release the band’s first ever single this month, which comprises “Förtvivlan, Min Arvedel”, the opening track from the newly released “VII / Född Förlorare” album, plus a cover of ALICE COOPER’s “Prince of Darkness”. Whilst the single, which is released on Spinefarm Records, will only be available in Sweden, the band is looking into the possibility of releasing other versions elsewhere.

Just in time to kick off your weekend in style, high-traffic music portal today hosts an exclusive stream of  "Casse, Pêches, Fractures et Traditions" from French black metal miscreants, PESTE NOIRE.

Released in North America by Transcendental Creations, L’Ordure à l’État Pur is a truly brilliant work of wormy, muddy black metal for derelicts, ingrates and scoundrels; a mixed bag of Filth and Tradition brought to you by the one and only, DJ Famine.

Hot News – Furor Gallico join our roster

'Furor Gallico' is the description that the ancient Romans gave the Celt warriors, who prepared for battle and were ready to die to defend their people and land.

FUROR GALLICO are the bards that bring the ancient legends of the Celtic world to life again with their folk metal!

Their music features metal riffs with powerful growl and scream vocals that blend in with the melodic folk melodies of the violin, flutes, Celtic harp and bouzouki (a Greek lute).

The band was formed in 2007 from an idea of Melissa (bass), Ste (guitar) and Becky (Celtic harp). They soon were joined by Pagan (voice), Marco (Drums), Oldhan (guitar), Laura (violin) and Merogaisus (whistles, bouzouki and  bagpipes).
The  band recorded its first demo '390 b.c. - The Glorious Dawn' in 2008.  FUROR GALLICO started playing gigs and in the meantime Simo became their new drummer and Mac the new bass player. In 2011 Paolo joined FUROR GALLICO as new whistler and Fabio became their new bass player.

FUROR GALLICO's self-titled debut is scheduled to be released on July 29, 2011!
