KREMATION, death metaller whom in 1999 released “Reborn” EP (distributed by Nebiula Production), have cancelled the plan to release another cassette EP under NORTH POEM RECORDS. The songs have already been recorded but due to the bad sound, they decided to re-record in and this time add few more songs and release a cassette LP instead. The songs are said to be more thrash-ier. North Poem will handle this LP.

LARRONG, another Sarawakian dark/death also postpond the release of their debut cassette EP due to some problems. The worse porblme might be the injuries of Supreme Vayoh, which broke his leg in an accident. The EP, will be released under his own label, MENJREX NERTO PRODUCTION. 

Also plan ro be released under Supreme Vayoh’s label, is a Sarawakian death/black metal compilation tape which should be titled as “Sarawak Metal Horde”. SHAMANIC RITES, REMUNENT, WORSHIP and BUTCHERER have desecrated the holy month of Ramadhan recording the songs for this compilation in Sibu. KHERROW (black metal) will record their opus in Feb. 2001. All band present 2 songs except for Larrong and Butcherer.

KREMATION will not be in this compilation since there are bigger thing have been planned. They, together with LARRONG will form a project band and should release something soon. All the releases said above will be released in March 2001. Expect a ‘Sarawakian Metal Invasion’ soon !

• Mr. Chris Forbes, known for his honest work with METAL CORE FANZINE and who also manages the mighty IMMOLATION, will be handling DIES IRAE PRODUCTIONS promo mailings for the following territories;  the US, Canada and Mexico from now on. For those of you within the mentioned territories, please contact Chris at MetalCZine@aol.com if interested in receiving our promos. Chris will lend DIES IRAE PRODUCTIONS his mighty hand beginning from Dim Mak's second album, "Intercepting Fist", the band's sophomore effort which will be out on DIES IRAE PRODUCTIONS.
• They have confirmed the dates for the new Dim Mak album which is entitled "Intercepting Fist". The band has begun recording from the 6th to 20th January 2001. They've flown over to Florida for this next effort and it is engineered, produced and mastered by Erik Rutan himself in his very own studio, Dimensional Sound Studios! Expect a much more killer sound than the band's previous effort. On top of that, we at Dies Irae have already got the chance to listen to DIM MAK's advance tracks and they all think that the new album will rule supreme!!! The release date is yet to be confirmed. However, if everything goes as planned, it should be safe to say that a March/April release is possible. Paw Nielsen will most likely be doing the artwork again this time. And yes, DIES IRAE PRODUCTIONS will stick to their usual practice of making the first pressing of 1000 or 2000 copies a limited edition. In what form, you may ask? Well, they'll think of something. Whatever it is, they'll make sure it'll be worth your every penny!
• Also, they'd like to take this opportunity to announce our most recent signing, FLY MACHINE *formerly known as the mighty CONFESSOR (previous releases out, and some still available, on Earache Records)!!! As we all know, Confessor made it on the "Top 100 album of the 90ies poll" in both Metal Maniacs and Terrorizer Magazine. It is really hard to describe them but if you've heard CONFESSOR before, then you'll have an idea of what FLY MACHINE is all about... only better, perhaps?!! Tentatively, the recording will commence sometime in June 2001. More info will follow as the day of wrath draws near...
• They have yet to finalise the recordings of our other equally great bands; namely DEATH OF MILLIONS, STARGAZER & INVOCATION. 
• Be sure to check out the new MELECHESH album which will be out on OSMOSE PRODUCTIONS in due time soon! They are, to them, one of the very best bands around and definitely worth checking out! This is one other release, which is not on DIES IRAE PRODUCTIONS, that must be obtained by every metalhead! Buy or die!!!
• They are hoping that anyone who receive this news can help them out with:-
1) getting their bands to play in your area if you organise gigs/shows.
2) airplay/possible interviews if you host a radio show.
3) reviews/possible interviews if you're involved with any publication (magazines, fanzines, etc.).
4) licensing/trades if you run a label.
5) buying their releases if you run a distro.
6) spreading the news (if you're anyone at all... heheh?!!) to your friends/correspondents everywhere.

Newsletter January 2001 
News, tourdates, upcoming releases... see what's hot in January and beyond... 

These news are also available on our website! Just follow this link: 

The new album is finished! It's called "AM UNIVERSUM" and the track list is as follows: Alone, Goddess (Of The Sad Man), The Night Is Over, Shatters Within, Crimson Wave, Drifting Memories, Forever More, Veil Of Sin, Captured State, Grieve Stricken Heart, and they also did record "Too Much To See", which will going to be a bonus song on some versions of "AM UNIVERSUM". In January the band will start doing a video for the song called "ALONE" with director Tuukka Temonen. 

Their upcoming album "ORGANIZED CHAOS" will be delayed as the producer they wanted for this album is currently busy in the USA. So, watch out for further news coming soon! 

..Will go on tour in February to promote their highly acclaimed new album "FOLLOW THE REAPER". In Europe, the band will support PRIMAL FEAR, and for the first time, CHILDREN OF BODOM will play in Korea! Of course they won't miss Japan this time as well, where they'll be on the road together with DARK TRANQUILITY. Check the tourdates at the bottom of the page! 

Are of course still alive and will let the metal flow! The master tapes of the upcoming live album "Live At The Whiskey A Gogo" just arrived, and we're sure no fan of Chuck Schuldiner wants to miss this great metal masterpiece that features the best tracks of every DEATH-era in a powerful live-sound! Stay tuned for further news! 

Finally the master tape arrived as well, and it's gonna be their best album so far, we can assure you! The album is titled: "Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia" and will be released 12th March 2001. This is the songs for the new album in no particular order: Intro (possible title "Fear and Wonder"), Blessings upon The Throne of Tyranny, IndoctriNation, Sympozium, The Maelstrom Mephisto, Hybrid Stigmata, The Apostasy, Puritania, Perfection or Vanity, Kings of The Carnival Creation, Absolute Sole Right, Architecture of A Genocidal Nature, Burn in Hell (Twisted Sister-cover, featured on Digi-Pack). 

Have begun to arrange a world tour for summer. Their new album "THE SILVER CORD IS SEVERED" will be available the 5th of February, including a free live-CD with 13 tracks. So go for it! 

Their new album "DESERT LAND" is in stores in February, the 12th. The band received really enthusiastic reviews so far from the press, be sure to check it out if you're into melodic metal! 

The band will start touring from Feb. 8th 2001 incl. some outstanding Open Air festivals during the summer. Fantastic news as the first reviews are coming in from the top German music magazines: Album of the month in the German HAMMER - Soundcheck No. 1 (review: 7 / 7 points), Album of the month in ROCK HARD 9/10 points, Metal Heart 10 / 10 points, Heavy oder was! 11 / 12 points... and more enthusiastic reviews are coming in daily! Check out their tour dates... at the moment the band is negotiating to add some shows in Canada and the USA! Also visit our website for an exclusive pre-listening: http://www.nuclearblast.de/events/primal_listening.htm 

Shortly after the release of "ROUND 6", the band will release a live-album entitled "ROAD RAGE" which was recorded during their last tour. Release: 5th february! They'll be going on an extensive tour again to promote "ROUND 6", so check our tourdates below! 

These swedes will deliver one of the best and unique death/thrash metal albums ever! If you doubt our words, read what the Metal-God himself, Rob Halford, says about this band: "SOILWORK represents a new sound in the metal scene. The combination of styles created is exciting and unusual. SOILWORK have obviously worked hard at breaking the metal mold and definied a futuristic approach that no other metal band is exploring. I am particularly inspired by Speed's variety of vocals. He sings in an individual and unique manner. SOILWORK are a band to watch for the new Metal Millenium. Go get it!" You better believe it... 

Their debut album "PREDOMINANCE" will be released at the 19th of March and is a KILLER! They'll be going on tour with DIMMU BORGIR and IN FLAMES, so don't miss this tour! 

Their "MACHINE"-Single will be released on January 22nd, there will also be a video-clip for it soon. Watch out for it in the end of January! Also, the band and Nuclear Blast want to give their warmest congratulations to former guitarist Tommy Olsson and his long time girlfriend Cathrine Finnestad that got married on December 30th 2000. Please note the following: In connection with the upcoming European tour THEATRE OF TRAGEDY want to invite the audience to submit live photos taken on the tour via e-mail.

"Here´s some latest news for you, I figured with Christmas being back and everyone´s pirouetting around in their faux Christmas mood, what better way to utterly destroy all that with a few carefully chosen words on what´s up with me at the moment?

I´m going back to Sweden, end of December to continue working on the new album (working title The smell of Rain) together with my friend and percussionist Fredrik Bergström (also of No Festival of Light and Ordo Equilibrio fame). The completion of this album is scheduled for sometime early/spring 2001. The official track list is:
- Monolith
- Spirit in a Vacuum
- Mental Maelstrom
- You put a hex on Me
- Everyone Leaves
- Antimental
- Smell the Witch
- Marshland
- Parasite God

Though obviously not in a that order. These songs have not been easy to write, seeing that the past couple of years have been pretty insane, with massive depression attacks, a total lack of moral and respect for myself and others resulting in lost friends and way too superficial friends and relationships gained, and finding out what a piece of shit I´ve turned out to really be. But hey, at least the decadence and the desperation has made me write an album that I consider to be a milestone in my career and a brand new beginning for Mortiis.

During the time gap between The Stargate and this one, my music has gone through vast changes, though not all at once, it´s been happening step by step. There´s been a lot of backtracking songs, a lot of throwing material away or simply choosing not to work on the demo material after all. I even had a side project (again) in the works, with a name, concept, an album worth of material written and in demo stage (we even rehearsed once) but then I decided that it was all a bunch of shit so I discarded the whole thing. Similar events have made the conceiving of this album into a pretty slow process (I´ve probably canned close to 2 albums´ worth of material)... Did I mention that each song was probably backtracked/re-written 3-4 times?

On a different note, that book thing, Secrets of my Kingdom is, according to Earache Records (www.earache.com) finally coming out, though the only release date info we have been given so far is some time during first half of the year - vaguer than a politician, I know, but far better than nothing at all. So be on the lookout, and be ready, since it will be limited and should sell out pretty quickly.

A couple of weeks ago I did an interview with UK metal/alternative music magazine Rock Sound, to be published some time January 2001. This feature will be very cool for two reasons:

1. The interview was conducted by Amen´s singer Casey Chaos.
2. The ensuing photo shoot (with Casey Chaos) shows a prototype of some new visual ideas that I´ve had. Not the complete/over the top thing I ultimately want to go for, but a very cool prototype for it.

Lastly, our web site has been completely redone from scratch, and it all ready to put up on the internet, though there´s been some technical problems so unfortunately this has taken way longer than expected. However, it´ll be up there any day now, so keep checking at: http://www.mortiis.com/

In January 8th, 2001 Modern Music has joined forces with the Sanctuary Records Group to form Sanctuary Records GmbH.

The British management company RS&AT started 25 years ago by launching Iron Maiden on the world. Later on the company developed into a conglomerate of various companies, most of them dedicated to Rock. Sanctuary acquired UK independent record company Castle Music and US independent company CMC International in the spring of last year, and with Modern Music now part of the group, Sanctuary is one of the biggest independent record companies in the world.

The declared goal: to put Rock into the position it deserves. In 2001 we will delight you with releases by the cult band WASP, the metal heroes Megadeth, guitar god Gary Moore, a new masterpiece by Gamma Ray, live records by Rob Halford und Virgin Steele and a new album by Kamelot. On January 8th we will start with the release of Iron Savior's "Dark Assault".

Noise and T&T Records will keep on supporting and furthering young bands playing melodic, power and true metal, just as you expect us to do. For Modern Music Sanctuary was the only logical partner, because both companies
think alike. Together we will stay independent, which means for us being open to new influences, flexible, available and motivated. To put it in a nutshell: NO BULLSHIT!

statment from Matt Of LIVIDITY
"This goes out to all the people,promoters and fans in europe....due to some problems with one of our members not being able to make the tour due to a new baby being born we have had to cancel our european tour....this has nothing to do with martain and erebos.....they have done a killer job supporting lividity and we feel bad 
we have to cancel...BUT We will not promote lividity at 50% and didn't wanna tour without a member or as a 3 piece...we are hoping to reschedule for fall and hit all the countries we've talked about.....We are sorry for any inconvinces due to our cancelation......we had no choice and it hurts us probably more then people realize.... we live to play and hate when we can't do something....I hope all promoters and firms will work with erebos to reschedule these shows for us when we try to return in the fall 2001 this is only the second time we've cancelled anything in over 7 years as lividity...so people you should understand!! we're doing everything possible to try to get out there in fall so we hope to see ya then! any commets contact me at lividitymb1@hotmail.com...will answer any questions you have about the whats and whys...stay sick"


SANATORIUM will record new CD in forthcoming days... They will enter Moonset studio (known by records of SUFFOCATE and few other bands) so be prepared for new dose of ultra brutal death metal. They will records like now like 3 piece band (Onecque - guitars, Dzordz - drums and me on vox/bassssss) with guest Miroslav from GOREOPSY on vocals. I have to say, that new material is totally different from "Arrival of the forgotten ones" CD. With new line-up everything changed and finally we are able to present SANATORIUM is one of the most brutal bands from Europe with old school touch. CD should be out on Erebos Productions, but we will send some promos to few labels to find better deal if possible. Every label who is interested to hear new material, write us. We will send CD-R with new songs to you.

LIVIDITY cancelled their SODOMIZING EUROPE tour and there is still possibility to replace them with DISGORGE from MEXICO.

Finally !!!! The recordings for the new album "Cognitive Dissonance" have STARTED. 
The band is proud to announce the new line-up, which will record the album in Exponent Studio, Slovakia, during January / February 2001

Basta - guitars
Luky - guitars
Peter Böhm - bass, vocals
Wolfgang Süssenbeck - keyboards, backing vocals
Bernd Pichlbauer - drums

The band has parted ways with their longtime singer / guitar player Peter Durst due to personal and musical differences, which have become unmountable. The band regards the matter closed with this statement and is not going to reveal any further details upon this matter.
Basta, one of the new guitar players, is joining DARKSIDE after a previous cooperation with members of the band on the project "NOOHOORSH". He hails from Ceske Budejovice / Czech Republic and his original band is czech trash monster COLP. The other new member in DARKSIDE is Luky, a young guitar player, who previously played in NEMA, an austrian black metal band.

DARKSIDE recently played two shows with ATROCITY and PAIN in Austria, and the reactions from both the crowd as well as from members of both bands were very positive.

DARKSIDE has also been signed to a new label, but in order to not to interfear with the label´s promotional work, until now, the band only reveals that it is a french label. The label will soon itself reveal the signing of DARKSIDE in one of its upcoming newsletter.

The final tracking list of "Cognitive Dissonance" is as follows

This record definately retains much of that heavy sound combined with a much more psychedelic approach. A great record! A must have for fans of the Melvins, Wellwater Conspiracy and Masters of Reality. Out in March 2001.
