AS I LAY DYING - Tim & Nick explain how to leg-wrestle
Video footage of AS I LAY DYING vocalist Tim Lambesis and guitarist Nick Hipa
"leg-wrestling" at this year's Download festival has been posted at
Tim Lambesis recently told MTV.com that the band's forthcoming LP, "An Ocean
Between Us", was largely influenced by what he perceives is the deterioration of
the so-called "metalcore" genre.
Produced by KILLSWITCH guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz (EVERY TIME I DIE, ALL THAT
REMAINS), the album — which hits stores August 21 and features backing vocals
from members of DESTROY THE RUNNER — will include a dozen tracks, including
"Separation", "Within Destruction" and the likely first single, "Nothing Left".
Lambesis said listeners will find that each song differs from the next, with
some cuts bordering on chaotic and foreboding, others more driven by melody, and
a couple that are just straight-up, balls-to-the-wall thrashy.

Well it's been a quite while since the last news...
The band is currently working heavily on material for the next album. Many of

raw energy is and remains the most important thing within SONIC REIGN's sound.

REIGN arose). There you'll also find a studio video from the "raw dark pure"

JOB FOR A COWBOY comment on Metal Hammer Golden Gods Award
Red hot extreme metal unit JOB FOR A COWBOY was named "Best Underground Band" at
the 2007 Metal Hammer "Golden Gods Awards". JOB FOR A COWBOY joins an esteemed
list of metal titans that have laid claim to the award including SATYRICON,
MESHUGGAH, MASTODON and IN FLAMES. The band was present at the June 11 award
ceremony in London to accept the award onstage.
JOB FOR A COWBOY, who delivered an exhilarating live set as part of the UK's
Download Festival on June 8, are in the midst of a host of European festival
performances in support of their critically acclaimed debut album "Genesis".
"Genesis" debuted at #54 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in its first week of
release, joining the initial releases from STONE SOUR and DAMAGEPLAN (which
featured members of SLIPKNOT and PANTERA respectively) amongst the highest
charting metal debuts to crack Billboard's Top 200 since SLIPKNOT's 1999
"We're happy to accept this award, and are proud to be a part of the underground
scene," states JOB FOR A COWBOY guitarist Ravi Bhadriraju. "We'd like to thank
all of the fans who voted for us, Metal Hammer for giving us the opportunity to
be nominated, our management and Metal Blade Records for everything. We're in
Europe right now with CONVERGE, ANIMOSITY and RISE AND FALL. We'll be heading
out to Sounds of the Underground in a few weeks. Come hang out and have a good
"I am truly thrilled and humbled by this great award," comments Metal Blade
Records owner and founder Brian Slagel. "We are very happy at how well JOB FOR A
COWBOY has been received for such a new, young band. This is just the beginning
of a long and great career for JFAC, and I am happy we could start off with such
a prestigious award. Thanks to Metal Hammer and everyone involved and congrats
to JOB FOR A COWBOY!" Slagel, the man known for releasing the first recordings
by METALLICA in 1982 and signing SLAYER the very next year, welcomed JOB FOR A
COWBOY to his label's roster in 2006.
In additional JOB FOR A COWBOY news, the band has announced the first dates of
its Summer U.S. headlining tour, set to launch on August 13, immediately
following their participation as part of the 2007 "Sounds of the Underground"
tour. Support on the JOB FOR A COWBOY tour will be provided by A LIFE ONCE LOST,
DESPISED ICON and THE FACELESS.

Ephel Duath "Hole IV" from "Pain Remixes The Known" on
Ephel Duath have posted an mp3 of "Hole IV" from the upcoming album "Pain
Remixes The Known" on their myspace page.
The "Pain remixes the known" album is a remix album of "Pain
necessary to know" which came out in 2006.
Guitarist Davide explains " The way we designed the previous album, Pain
Necessary to Know, left room for a lot of new interpretations, or remixes as is
the case here. The initial idea came from Earache's Dan Tobin, and it seduced us
We were on tour at the time and therefore had enough spare
time on the road to discuss about all this and we all arrived to the conclusion
that slowing down the BPM of PNTK to a dubbish rhythm would be a slight risk
that had the potential to become a thrilling experience."
"Two years ago ambient-dub guru Eraldo Bernocchi contacted us
just to congratulate us for our work and ended up inviting us to dinner. Eraldo
is a guitar player, producer and electronic musician. He's got more than 20
years of musical career and 75 full length albums spanning many different audio
and visual projects with artists and musicians from all over the world.
Some of his partners and collaborators are Bill Laswell, Mick
Harris, Toshinori Kondo, Thomas Fehlmann, DJ Disk and Harold Budd. He scored
various soundtracks, just to mention a few "Nirvana" and "Denti" of the Oscar
Prize winner Gabriele Salvatores.
Among his remixes he counts Almamegretta, Prince Paul/Jungle
Brothers, WordSound, Robert Miles, AFA, The Maldoror Project and many others
ranging from dub to metal and drum and bass. A brilliant artist basically. So
Lucio and I went to Tuscany where he lives and a lot of ideas regarding possible
collaboration came up that night.
fter a few months Eraldo asked us to compose a song with him
for the 20th anniversary of his band Sigillum S. The song came out real Pink
Floydish, with spoken words as well as the typical Ephel Duath appeal added to
the ambient guitar of Eraldo. Some time went by and our friendship developed,
and at some point Dan Tobin's idea for the remix album came up and we
immediately thought of Eraldo.
The whole album, Pain Remixes the Known, has been composed by
Eraldo in his home studio called The Place with the help of collaborator and
singer Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari."
"An Ephel Duath fan knows that the band is shapeless. We think that PRTK is an
extremely important experiment that can help the band widen the scope of its
fanbase and can surprise whoever is used to our sound. Just listen to it and see

PRIMORDIAL - news update from A.A. Nemtheanga
It’s been a long time since my last message….
The first and most important thing is that PRIMORDIAL will enter the studio in
July and August to record the new album. We are travelling across the water to
Wales to the middle of nowhere to an old analog studio. And with the blessing of
Metal Blade it should be out in 2007…
The themes have moved on from the last album (they are also becoming more
expansive and perhaps less desperate then the last album) and right now I’m
beginning to piece together some ideas for the artwork with Paul from Scald who
made "The Gathering Wilderness" look so special. It will look incredible I can
guarantee that and will be an absolutely pure artistic statement in this day and
age of hollow, plastic meaningless Metal covers. This of course goes for the
music as well without saying !…
Apart from that some bad news, we have had to cancel both Dong Open Air in
Germany and Metal Healing in Greece. Rehearsing has always operated at a premium
with Primordial and now with the comparatively large distances between us we
can’t devote time to both rehearsing for shows and making a new album. We
sincerely apologise, anyone who knows us knows we hate to disappoint those who
always come down and show their support for the band live. We will do our best
to make it up to everyone in 2008.
Sentinel Records from Ireland are going to release "The Gathering Wilderness" on
picture disc, No Sign of Life from Finland "Dark Romanticism"
and Black Ace from Holland look like doing "Storm Before Calm" on pic disc with
some revised and improved artwork all before the end of the year !. Not to
mention my plans for splits with both Desaster and Rotting Christ. It’s going to
be a busy 18 months with Wars to fight on several fronts…
I am also going to release a split 7" with a project I wrote some songs for
called PLAGUED. I recorded a 2 track demo about 5 or more years ago. Finally
Einheit Productions from Germany have persuaded me to release one track as a
split 7" with Trimonium. I’m interested to see what people make of it. I’ll put
the track up there on my myspace site soon. How very 21st century of me…I might
continue now and try and forge a proper line-up for the band with this shot in
the arm of enthusiasm. We shall see. Click Here for cover art and label info.
So that ends this transmission for now, If you are one of the few people still
waiting on shirts. Bear with me, I’ waiting on reprints at the moment.
We will never rip off anyone and you will all get something extra if you’ve been
waiting some time…

replacement for ex-drummer Maluschka. New drummer will be Alex "Sasch"

years, either on the mix or otherwise. Sasch apparently is the perfect choice
for the band and we are very excited to start writing the new record with him
Also, the vacant bass player spot is filled. To complete the line-up, Alla
Fedynitch joins DISILLUSION. She has been a session bass player for quite a
number of bands before and is of course more than a mere gain in the low

ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS - sign to Century Media; post
new album artwork & premiere new song @ MySpace
Century Media Records announce the worldwide signing of the most notorious pack
of degenerates from Santa Cruz, ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS, who will unleash
their second full-length slab of brutal and diverse sonic insanity "The Game Of
Life" on August 20, 2007.
Produced by Zach Ohren of Castle Ultimate (Animosity, Light
This City), the follow-up to "Hits From The Bow" (2006) promises extreme metal
fury daringly dancing on the tiny ridge between sanity, musical ingenuity and
utter craziness! The eye-popping album artwork as well as the brand-new track
"Shoeshine For Neptune" taken off the forthcoming album can be checked out at
their official MySpace page.
Currently ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS are on the "Captain America Is Dead" Tour
with Elysia and Knights Of The Abyss. Following that, they head out with My
Bitter End and Moria on the "Plowing Ballz" Tour for another US run. An European
tour is currently in the works, so expect to be able to witness the band’s
lunatic live show later this year!
Dates and additional show information can be found on their MySpace page as
HIMSA - announce new album title & release date
Like a voracious hellion, the mighty HIMSA have returned to
annihilate the masses with their scathing new metal assault, "Summon In
Thunder", which is set for a September 17th release. Steve Carter (who produced
HIMSA’s second album "Courting Tragedy and Disaster") produced the music while
Devin Townsend (Lamb of God, Darkest Hour) produced vocals and the renowned Tue
Madsen (The Haunted) brought it all together, nailing the mixing and mastering
Derek Harn (bass) states: ""Summon In Thunder" was paid for in blood, sweat and
fury. Over 5 weeks straight of 20-hour days, and metal masters from three
countries worked tirelessly under tight deadlines to create this monster. It was
pure -- but ultimately rewarding -- anguish. In the end, it all paid off, and
the intensity of the recording process carries through the album like a horde of
To watch HIMSA "suffering" in the studio, watch the third part of the band’s
studio report series at this link
Derek continues: "During our endless hours in the studio, we had a great idea
for a video that we couldn’t pass up and decided to make this our first enhanced
CD. The video is for our shortest, thrashiest song, "Unleash Carnage", and is
truly one of the grossest, most ridiculous displays in all of metaldom.
Also on the CD, we included video footage on the making of the
album, sort of a diary of how the process was working out at the time. To top it
off, we put lots of pretty pictures of us in a photo gallery, so all the girls
can make posters of us and hang them on their bedroom walls.
Speaking of pretty pictures, the ever-masterful Paul Romano (Mastodon, The Red
Chord) created all the art and design for this album's packaging. He researched
what ancient cultures believed created thunder in the heavens and worked closely
with Pettibone’s lyrics to create the imagery of mythological creatures and the
power of nature’s dark wrath. It’s amazing art.
We are incredibly proud of this album and feel it’s a pure representation of who
we are as individuals and as a band. We are anxious to get back out on the road
and see all our friends across the globe."
With original guitarist Sammi Curr returning to the fold and collaborating with
Kirby Johnson (guitars) this scorching new effort (and debut Century Media
offering) promises a shredding onslaught of massive riffs, devastating dynamics
and refreshing savageness.
With an European tour already planned for autumn 2007 and the stunning "Summon
In Thunder" under their belt, there is nothing that can prevent HIMSA from
taking the world by storm!

THRONE OF KATARSIS: Hyllest
"There will be held a special live performance with the Norwegian Black Metal
band THRONE OF KATARSIS in order to celebrate the opening of a brand new
intimate stage at Hellion Rock & Metal pub, Norway. This will take place on the
14th of July, cover charge 100 NOK. THRONE OF KATARSIS released their well
reviewed debut album "An Eternal Dark Horizon" on Candlelight earlier this year,
and have gotten themselves quite a name already.
A very special support act will join in for this celebration; NORDAVIND from
Stord, Norway, will do their first concert ever this night. Their demo "Ukjend
Land" was one of the best demos in 2006, including folk elements in their Black
Hellion Rock & Metal Pub is located in Kopervik, on the west-coast of Norway"
IHSAHN to collaborate with Starofash and Grimen on new
Neo-Folk album "Hardingrock"
This recording is a collaboration between the musicians Starofash (Heidi Solberg
Tveitan), Ihsahn (Vegard Tveitan) and Grimen (the fiddler Knut Buen) in a
musical category we have labeled "Hardingrock". "Grimen" presents folk tunes on
the Norwegian national instrument, Harding fiddle, text and melodies based on
Norwegian mythical tradition, arranged and re-composed in modern form with
influences from heavy metal and classically inspired electronica.
An experimental project where folk tunes are thematically
broken down and expressed in a new rhythmic and harmonic form with guitars,
piano, keyboards, percussion, recitation and song. "It has been a great
experience to work with such a fine musician as Knut Buen", says Heidi S.
Tveitan, the name behind Starofash. "The process has been challenging in terms
of us having to work within the tonality of Norwegian Folk music, and to make
non-rhythmic music into 'rock'n'roll rhythms'", she continues. "Even though the
elements the three of us brought to the table were very contrasting, I think
we're all very pleased with how it came together", says IHSAHN. "The material
provided to us by Knut is a huge part of Norway's cultural treasure, and I think
the album definitely is a worthy development that rocks!"
New ENTOMBED album out now
With regards to the musical direction of the new album, the band previously
said, "'Serpents Saints' goes wider and deeper than the 'When In Sodom' EP but
it's a pretty good indicator. It's no concept album but an ambitious attempt at
creating a solid album with some recurring themes. Almost like the soundtrack to
the film with the same name."
"Serpent Saints - The Ten Amendments" track listing:
01. Serpent Saints
02. Masters of Death
04. Thy Kingdom Coma
05. When in Sodom
06. In The Blood
08. The Dead, The Dying and The Dying To Be Dead

BORN FROM PAIN - 2nd anniversary show
Anniversary show that we were possibly planning for Thursday the 28th. We had
about 150 reservations already and an awesome surprise guest for the show, but
it was increasingly turning out to be a problem logistically with just 3 weeks
to get everything promoted decently again and get everything together the way we
Something else we have discussed the last week is the fact
that, besides an Anniversary show, it's the last show of Che. 1 The day before
without him just didn't feel right. Another reason is that we couldn't get a
clear view on the whole pre-sale situation for the Friday (as a lot of people
might understand since they had the same problem...), so to make it easy we
decided to just the one on the Friday.
Like we said before, make sure you are there at 19:00 if you
don't have a ticket yet, people might be late picking tickets up. It's a risk
but we figure there's good chance... Sorry for everyone who reserved tickets at
the venue for the Thursday. Hope we can make it up at some point.
