Has just independently released its first full length CD entitled "Synthetic Deity". The CD is a progressive death
metal masterwork that contains 8 tracks of aggressive death metal with complex arrangements and apocalyptic lyrics.
Their music is a hybrid of metal with influences from the likes of Iron Maiden, Slayer, Death, and Morbid Angel. The CD is available on line at,, and many other retail outlets on the net. Of course you can get the CD from the band by writing to : For more information or to download a mp3 of "Synthetic Deity" visit: .

The release of THE CHASM LP have to be delayed due to a problems of getting the printed cover. The cover is printed in Europe but it is undeliverable to the label's P.O. Box address. Questions should be asked to FERNANDO CASTEL at .

SOD Movie - The film documenting the 1999-2000 tour is scheduled for release in November on VHS/DVD from Nuclear Blast. Concert footage cut in with interviews, behind the cenes and stuff that's completely bizarre like Twiggy Ramirez reciting Martian dialogue then shooting himself. Go to the web site to view the trailer!

The writing of the much anticipated fifth BAL-SAGOTH album is nearing completion. The band intend to record the saga's next episode in the autumn, for a spring 2001 release. Like the band's fourth album (The Power Cosmic), the forthcoming fifth opus will once again be available on Nuclear Blast. Fans can expect an album characterized by BAL-SAGOTH's trademark twisted genius, infused with pure erudite lunacy and utter symphonic bombast. Additionally, the new material is far more dark and malevolent than anything that has come before, and promises to take listeners on a journey to the very limits of one's darkest imagination and beyond. The celebrated "Hyperborean Empire" saga reaches its third and final chapter on the new album, as events within the besieged and benighted kingdom of Hyperborea culminate in a pulse-pounding and cataclysmic climax of unparalleled proportions. The fifth album will feature full text and stories in the inlay booklet, as well as extensive accompanying illustrations throughout. The cover art for the opus will once again be provided by ace English fantasy artist Martin Hanford.

Dragon metal from Latvia long-awaited debut-cd entitled «Mythical Beasts and Mediaeval Warfare» has finally been released under the wing of the British Demolition Records! Gleaming with a myriad diverse elements and enthralling melodies, they consider «Mythical Beasts...» to be a great step forward from the well-received «Dragons of War» demo, and not merely due to the greatly enhanced production and atmosphere... Our first full-length contains over 60 minutes of epic dragon metal of many colours to the glory of eldaer times and realms, traditionally adorned with the beautiful elf-maid lead vocals of Rasa and the scaldic string rapture of Jester and Majesty to transmute the crestfallen soundscapes of symphonic black/death unto a blazing alchemy of sorts, epic spirit, primordial might, illuminating visions and heraldic fantasy. Available for only $15 (Europe) or $16 (overseas).
Still available: «Dragons of War» demo '97: $5 ($6 overseas)
Special offer: order both the CD + demo for $18 ($19 overseas) only...

"The new Euro Death Kings" from France is now working on its next cd. a video will be added. 3 songs are ready, and the recording should begin in April '2001, for the cd to be out in June-July. More info should be ask to

SWEDEN - After much anticipation, Swedish metal kings HAMMERFALL are set to release their third full length opus entitled Renegade. Recorded at Wireworld Studios in Nashville, Tennessee with producer Michael Wagener (Metallica,
Ozzy, Accept, Skid Row), Renegade clearly proves to be the band's most mature, well written and plainly explosive offering to date. "Recording in Nashville, TN with a big time producer was a bit scary at first thought. We
were worried that the great Michael Wagener would try to interact and interfere with the musical side of things too much and change the sound of what fans have come to look upon as the 'Hammerfall' sound.", explains guitarist Oscar Dronjak of the band's initial session worries, "But he proved to be the greatest guy you could ever meet and a perfect producer to boot! We had written and arranged the complete material before we left Sweden virtually down to the last note. Michael recognized this and didn't start to tamper with the songs at all, which gives this album a decidedly HAMMERFALL feel."

Renegade picks up where Legacy of the Kings left off churning delicate, yet power-driven melodies and thought-worthy lyrics furnished by the consuming vocals of Joacim Cans. But Renegade is leagues heavier than its predecessors. "Musically we have taken it to the next level. Artistically, I truly believe we have composed the most complete heavy metal album HAMMERFALL has made so far. I like to compare our progress to that of the Star Wars movies: it contains everything you can expect and have gotten used to but improved according to the increasing capabilities and experiences of the people involved. " says Dronjak, "A couple of new twists and turns have been added to create the feeling of a completely new adventure."

Formed in 1993, HAMMERFALL are considered the rejuvinators of the heavy metal scene. Featuring Cans, Dronjak, bassist Magnus Rosen, guitarist Stefan Elmgren and drummer Anders Johannson (their current lineup), HAMMERFALL's 1997 debut, Glory To The Brave blew itself into a colossal success wooing listeners with it's classic metal appeal. The band performed the prestegious Wacken Open Air festival (among many others) and took on several high profile tours proving they are crippling both on stage and off. 1998's Legacy of Kings was met with even more enthusiasm with the record entering the German Music Charts at #38, the highest ever debut for a heavy metal band. The release also earned the band "Album Of The Month" in both Rock Hard and Heavy Oder Was ? (two of Germany's top metal magazines) as well as a nomination for "Best Hard Rock Band" at the Swedish Grammy Awards that year.

• "Martirios", new work of FALLACY has been promoted on Portuguese underground and mainstream music media since March. Fortunately the results have been good.
• Their future challenge is to promote "Martirios" Demo CD on foreign media press. Later this year they plan to show the promotion results, and FALLACY's sound, to several labels.
• FALLACY are already working on some new tracks. They in the same vein as "Anorah" is. The band's passion for technical and progressive metal remains the same. 
• FALLACY's third demo is available since last March. It costs $6 US Dls (posts included).
