Hot News – Behemoth: Rehearses For The First Time In 2011, Pictures Available!

2011. jún 29, 19:09 :

Polish black/death metal kings BEHEMOTH haven't rehearsed as a band since Nergal was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2010. Since then, Nergal has undergone chemo therapy and a bone marrow transplant. Now, for the first time in over a year, BEHEMOTH is back in the rehearsal space working on old and new songs.

Vocalist/guitarist Nergal has issued the following update: "Sooo, first rehearsals after the transplant are under our belts! I didn't want to get overexcited at first, just wanted to see how things would go, but I have to tell you…the second rehearsal we fuckin' nailed "Ov Fire And The Void", "Lucifer", "Conquer All" or "Antichristian Phenomenon" flawlessly! One of us even asked: 'Did we really take a year off from each other?' Ha ha… it was good times in great company! But the biggest surprise were the songs we NEVER played live ever and planning to do on the upcoming "Phoenix Rising Tour". I won't reveal any names yet, let it be a mystery til we hit the stage, all right?"

"In other news, I started jamming out some NEW shit too…too early to give any further comments but it sounds VERY disturbing and eerie. Can't fuckin wait to unleash those ideas to my friends…"


Hot News – Lock Up: Album Preview Online!

2011. jún 29, 19:06 :

LOCK UP, the death-grind super group featuring Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH, VENOMOUS CONCEPT), Nicolas Barker (ex-CRADLE OF FILTH, ex-DIMMU BORGIR), Tomas Lindberg (AT THE GATES, DISFEAR) and Anton Reisenegger (CRIMINAL, PENTAGRAM) have uploaded an album preview for their upcoming album „Necropolis Transparent“!

Check it out below!

Producer Andy Sneap commented the new stuff:
“Having known Nick and Shane (a.k.a. the sumo tag team of grindcore) since the late 80's its always great to get together with old friends and make some noise in the studio. "Necropolis Transparent" by far, surpasses what we achieved together back in 1999 with "Pleasures Pave Sewers" in terms of brutality, speed and song writing along with the help of new guitarist Anton Reisenegger (Criminal, Pentagram). For me personally ,it was quite refreshing and great fun to do something this extreme, especially with my mates Nick, Shane and Carcass mainman/Mersey scally Jeff Walker swinging by the studio to handle guest vocal duties and help us drink way too much.

Hot News – Nightrage: Reveal album details!

2011. jún 29, 18:38 :

NIGHTRAGE have revealed the following statement about their upcoming 5th album entitled "Insidious" which will be released on September 26th in Europe and a day later in North America.

The new NIGHTRAGE album is ready! We are extremely happy with the results and we look forward to sharing this music with all of you. Here is the journey thus far:

We recorded the music at Zero Gravity studios on Athens, Greece with our great friend Terry Nikas at the helm. He did a fantastic job and provided us with an amazing environment and atmosphere to make the best record possible.

Antony had the pleasure as well to work on the vocals in a very different setting with Ryan Butler at his Arcane Digital Recording studio in Arizona. Ryan has been assisting us with demo sessions since the last album and it felt very natural for us to try the final product with him. We then went to Studio Fredman located in Gothenburg Sweden for the mix and master. Our longtime producer Fredrik Nordstrom and Henrik Udd worked long and hard to make the best out of what we gave them.
