An extreme death/grind/black metal band called DELUGE is begging everyone downloading their song, "Divine..." and send in your comments.
http://www.angelfire.com/band/Deluge . DELUGE can be reached at
Press statement of Dimmu Borgir:
"After much confusion and mystery surrounding Astennu's replacement, we feel it's time to put everything in its place. When we released Astennu from his duties, we made a few hasty business decision's due to pressures regarding the new album and time schedules. As it turns out, unfortunately, it didn't work out with Archon the way both parties expected. But all the bullshit aside Dimmu Borgir is very proud to announce that no other than Galder (mastermind and songwriter of OLD MAN'S CHILD) is Astennu's permanent replacement on guitar and will feature on the forthcoming, as-yet-untitled Dimmu Borgir album, to be recorded in Studio Fredman, Gothenburg, Sweden with Fredrik Nordstrom (AT THE GATES, ARCH ENEMY, IN FLAMES), starting September 4th 2000. Some tracks are as follows: 'Blessings Upon The Throne Of Tyranny', 'Maelstrom Mephisto', 'Architect Of A Genocidal Nature', 'Sympozium' and
'Kings Of The Carnival Creation' among others. It will also feature a re-recording of the '96 classic track 'Devil's Path' for the Japanese version of the new album."
LOCK UP have parted company with Peter Tägtgren. The band would like to do more shows but due to Tagten's busy schedule they decided to get someone else. That someone else is former AT THE GATES member Thomas Lindberg. The band hope to tour South America at the end of September, possibly recording some of the shows for a live mini-album which is due out in January and will also include covers of songs by TERRORIZER and IMPALED NAZARENE. Meanwhile, the band continue to write songs for their next full-length album.
The newest NB singing is the new band of former DIMMU BORGIR-drummer Tjodalv and his new band SUSPERIA have finished their first recording, a promotion CD which contains 5 songs. The production is called "Illusions of evil". This promo was recorded in November and December `99 at Pitfire Studio, mixed and mastered by L.Argedick. Synth and piano on this recording was done by Mustis (DB). SUSPERIA Line up is:
Cyrus - Guitars
Memnock - Bass
Athera - Vocal.
Their full-length debut "Seven Sins" is set for a release date in March, so be patient but watch out!
Hereby ORPHANAGE proudly announces the incorporation of a new bandmember.
"After years of dedicated service our drummer Erwin Polderman, together with the other bandmembers, decided to put an end to the collaboration. Erwin's search for challenge urged him to make room for other musical projects and possibilities. We regret his departure but respect his motivation... WE WISH ERWIN ALL THE BEST FOR THE FUTURE! Nobody better than the following maniac is able to take over Erwin's position; his fanatic hunger for heavy music and precise and powerfull drumming perfectly fits the Orphanage-style. His name: Sureel."
Please note that AMORPHIS will enter the Studio between September 26th and October 30th to record their forthcoming album, which should contain at least 12 songs. All songs will be produced and mixed by Simon Efemy (Paradise Lost, Pantera amongst others) who has already worked with the band on Tuonela. The album is scheduled for a worldwide release in early Spring 2001!
Martin Walkyier was in the Park Gates Studios in Hastings/UK and provided some guest vocals for CRADLE OF FILTH for their coverversion of the SABBAT classic For Those Who Died. The new album FOLKEMON will be released on October 23rd, 2000 via NUCLEAR BLAST and shows Skyclad back in a much heavier way than on their last albums.
Bal-Sagoth will enter the studio in November to record their 5th album during 4 weeks.
The new material is their best yet, and the band is sure that it will expand their legend to unparalleled new heights in the black-metal.scene. The new opus will be the final chapter of their trilogy that is based upon the saga of the Hyperborean Empire. All artwork again is provided by artist Martin Hanford, so you can be sure that you'll get a great booklet along with another great CD of these britannic battle metal-masters!
The recordings for the new killer album "Nuclear Fire" are finally finished. Releasedate for NF will be the 15th january 2001. A headliner-tour is planned for mid-february and there's a new US-webpage to be seen as well: -
SOILWORK will be entering the studio DHS in Stockholm on the 11th september to record the drums for their third album (working title: 'A Predator's Portrait'). The album then will be finished from the 18th september 'til mid-october at Studio Fredma, Göteburg. Releasedate?
Probably the 29th january 2001.

The album will be released in Scandinavia by SPINEFARMand in Europe by NUCLEAR BLAST at the end of January 2001, followed by full headlining European tour. Before that the band will play 10 shows with MORBID ANGEL in Europe in December 2000.

The start of the recording session for the new album had a small delay, since the ferry, with which the band traveled had to make an intermediate stop because a passenger decided to commit suicide while driving by jumping into the water in order to drown......

ETERNAL FROST webzine is looking for BRUTAL death/grind bands to participate in the upcoming first edition of the Eternal Frost Webzine compilation CD series!

If you are in a band of this style and would like to take part, you must first send your shit (CD, tape or vinyl) for consideration. Please be aware that simply sending your material does not guarantee you a spot on the CD! Bands will have to pay $150 to participate. The first compilation will feature only death and grind bands, but black metal and extreme doom metal bands feel free to mail me your demos/CDs for consideration for the second comp, which will focus on those two styles.

-Irritate has LOTS of new releases coming out: split CD with Godstomper (Riotous Assembly Records), split 7" with Unholy Grave (Caustic Records) and split 7" with Fetus Eaters Vulgar Records)... Some of that stuff is already delayed a lot, but will be out sooner or later! If you like grindcore, this stuff will blow you away!
-Incriminated / Bloodhammer split 12" vinyl LP will be released by Northern Heritage, will be very limited edition so keep your eyes and ears open for this! And for those who haven´t heard the new Incriminated stuff; new material is far more primitive and dark than old recordings, imagine the worst possible mix of Hellhammer and Necrophagia... Lyrics are still hateful and anti-christian. Fucked up horror metal of death.
-Irritate and Incriminated have both also recorded stuff for tons of different compilation CD´s including "Tribute to ´85" compilation on Impaler Records where Irritate covers Lärm ("TV Spots"), Rattus ("Will Evil Win") and Bathory ("Possessed") and Incriminated does their
version of Onslaught: "Thermonuclear Devastation". This CD is really important for both bands, cause 1985 was maybe the most influental year in extreme underground.
ZARAZA's "Slavic Blasphemy" CD are now available in MP3 at: http://www.mp3.com/zaraza . The CD originally released in 1997, this brutal dose of experimental industrial doom/death metal has been hailed as one of the Top 10 Albums of 1998 (according to Chronicles of Chaos webzine). They have realized that the old way of doing things in the underground music scene is simply sick. Bands or independent record labels sell their CDs for a measly price to distributors who then jack the price up and pass it on to the record stores that jack it up even more. We've seen CDs we sold wholesale for $7 show up in stores for $22.99 and other such ridiculous prices. They believe this amounts to nothing but a high-scale rip-off of our listeners and an unneeded barrier between our music and them.
To put it simply, they are more interested in getting our music out to anyone who wants it rather than charging for it and seeing others make a ridiculous profit margin on it along the way. Underground music shouldn't be about the money anyway, at least in our opinion.
From now on, the music of "Slavic Blasphemy" is available for eternity as a free MP3 download (although of course we still offer the original CD version for those who prefer hi-fi sound quality).

RED STREAM RECORDS
• NEW JUDAS ISCARIOT MINI CD RELEASED IN SEPTEMBER 2000
In the last few months Akhenaten surprised Red Stream with the recording of an unexpected MCD, "Dethroned, Conquered and Forgotten" which shows a brutal and unrelentingly sinister corner of this musician's vision. Unleashed by Red Stream almost without warning to the industry or fans, the MCD is yet another example of the band's (and label's ) unwillingness to conform.
• KOROVA SIGNS WITH RED STREAM
Austrian tonetravellers KOROVA (Austria) have left Napalm Records to mutate and perform their forthcoming kills at Red Stream (U.S.A.). The mightiest avalanche of the alps will ram the studio to memorialize their third album "WaterHells" during the sunstorms of November 2000. It will be a concept work about the phantasmagoric underwater-journey down to the skullpalace; a dive into your deepest nightmares. There are a few more months to wait before entering the broken dams. There are another few kills before killing the devil within you.

The band will be putting in an appearance at the November to Dismember fest. Also, a few exclusive and additional US and CANADIAN dates will be made while the band are overseas. (See dates below)! The band will be entering the Abyss Studio in the end of January. To record their long awaited third full-length album. The new album will be produced by Peter Tagtgren.
- WOLFEN SOCIETY -
The much awaited debut from WOLFEN SOCIETY has finally been recorded. These five misanthropic musicians all met up in Columbus, Ohio to record their upcoming mini-CD "Conquer Divine". On September 15th, WOLFEN SOCIETY entered THORNAPPLE STUDIOS, while many of the members were just meeting one another for the first time. The chemistry was great and the band worked well together.

Songs that will be featured are "Blood Oath", "Life is War", "Conquer Divine" and a cover of CARNIVORE's classic song "Race War".

- DOMINION CALIGULA -
November 13th Emperor Magus Caligula and Dominion will release the debut album "A New Era Rises", from their side project simply called "DOMINION CALIGULA" on No Fashion Records. This debut recording, which exclusively contains, ultra-heavy, moody and in some ways melancholic songs, with lyrics dealing with such unexpected topics as the rise and fall of the ancient Roman Empire, seen through the eyes of a twisted and narcissistic mind, giving the lyrics almost a pornographic approach. The album was written, arranged and produced during 1999 and finally you will be able to hear the results which are uncompromising, unique sounding metal which is meant to leave scars both physically and mentally.
- THE STORYTELLER -
The Storyteller has now a LICENSEE in Japan and America. This means the availability of the album in Japan and in the States will be improved, as not only stores which have decided to import the album will sell it. As Japan bonus track the band have decided to include an old acoustic demo from 1996. Release dates have not been decided yet, but it's not far away! Speaking of Japan; The Storytellers self-titled debut album was rated "10th best album of 2000" on a Japanese website! The song "Guardians Of Kail" was rated "14th best song of 2000". If you live in the USA or Canada and haven't been able to get the album due to lack of distributors, we have some good news for you too. An American online store (Alta Mira Online) has decided to import the album. You can find their link in the Album-section on the bands official website (http://welcome.to/storyteller). If you're in Sweden, try to attend any of the bands upcoming shows, Västerås, Uppsala or Gävle. More info at the website, and more dates to come! http://www.metalmeltdown.com has a full MP3 of "Book Of Mystery" in the MP3-section on their website. This is a golden opportunity to get a full song from the album in cd quality!
And finally a warning;
The Swedish online store Ginza, and a few others, have confused "The Storyteller" with a band called just Storyteller... they recently released an album titled "Corridor Of Windows". Many people have asked about this, but this album has nothing to do with THE STORYTELLER!
- VERMIN -
Finally. The new and long awaited 3rd full-length album from the demonic death rockers VERMIN is completed" It was recorded at Studio Sunlight with the infamous producer Thomas Skogsberg. The new album include 12 songs and will go under the banner "Filthy. F***ING. Vermin"! After the killer response the band got on their highly acclaimed "Millennium Ride" album, we are here to expect a high intensive album with lot of juicy metal riffs. Swedish death-metal has never been better! More info and release date soon to be announced!

The new album was recorded at Finnvox Studios, Helsinki (Finland), thee same studio as Stratovarius uses. Insania also worked with the same producer as Stratavarious, Mikko Karmila. Mikko was very easy to work with, the band says. He had a lot of ideas, how to make their sound better, and how to lift up the important melodies in Insania’s music. The recording was very successful, and the album contains a total of 11 songs, whereof one is an intro. The band also recorded a bonus track, which will appear on the Japanese press only. Compared to their previous album, Hymns of Insania part II-Sunrise in Riverland has a more powerful sound.
