GOD DETHRONED -
New album ready + European tour booked!
Dutch Deathsters GOD DETHRONED are gearing up for another
Blitzkrieg European tour with Vader & Severe Torture. Being the main
support and having the new album out during the tour will give the band a lot
of well-deserved exposure. Scroll down for the full touring schedule!
"The Toxic Touch" is the band's 6th album for
Metal Blade Records and was recorded at Soundlodge Studios in Germany with
Producer Joerg Uken. Mastering was handled at Wisseloord Studios in Holland.
The tracklisting is as follows:
02. Hating Life
04. Falling Down
05. On Wings of Pestilence
06. The Day You Died
07. Away From Emptiness
08. Macabre World
09. Typhoid Mary
10. Fail to Exist
The Japanese edition will have a bonus track called
- 'The Toxic
Touch' is the product of two years of extensive and intense touring all over
the world. The new line-up has proved to be superior to all the previous ones.
You could see it as a learning process. While everybody knows us as a band with
a fine mix between the brutal and the melodic parts, people appreciate us
mostly for our groove and melody, especially live. The new album reflects that
more than ever before.
The number of
blast-beats on this album has been decreased to a minimum. Why? Simply because
in a live situation it's probably the most boring part. In the new situation
the blast-beat adds something special, the explosion, whereas in the past it
was just a common part of our style and therefore 'nothing special',
GOD DETHRONED mainman Henri Sattler, and adds: - 'The Toxic Touch' has become an album with new and broader influences,
techniques and songwriting, but sounds exactly the way God Dethroned should
sound anno 2006. This time with our best and heaviest production to date.'
„The Toxic Touch- will be released on the
20th of October in G/A/S, and on the 23rd of October in Europe!
The cover artwork will be revealed soon!

SUBWAY TO SALLY - Acoustic album + DVD
to be released in November
In April 2006, Medieval metallers SUBWAY TO SALLY embarked
on their very first acoustic tour named "Nackt" (="Naked")
through primary churches and smaller clubs with intimate atmosphere all over
Germany. The unique project turned out to be a great success!
Accompanied by cellist B.Deutung (ex-INCHTABOKATABLES) the band created magical, unforgettable
evenings - both for the fans and themselves. Everyone who has missed the tour
can cheer up now: SUBWAY TO SALLY recorded their "Nackt" concerts on
April 30th (aural for the CD) and May 5th (visually for the DVD) at the
Passionskirche in Berlin - the material will be released as high class CD/DVD
package in November.
Besides, SUBWAY TO SALLY are working on songs for a new studio CD, presumably
to be released at the end of April/beginning of May 2007.

Press release on new album!
FALCONER have finished recordings on their fifth studio
album entitled „Northwind".
Comments guitar player Stefan Weinerhall:
"'Northwind', the fifth album of FALCONER is a return to the folkish style
after some experiment on the last one.
Very melodic and catchy, and with
Mathias back on vocals he gives the album that extra epic touch that none other
can do. The album is not a concept album although the title sums up the
atmosphere of both the music and the lyrics. From catchy metal to sweet ballads
to medieval minstrels gone electrified, there´s something for all tastes."
The album will be released as a limited first edition
including a bonus-cd with recordings of four Swedish folk songs and a video
documentary of the album recordings.
2. Waltz with the dead
3. Spirit of the hawk
4. Legend and the lore
5. Catch the shadows
6. Tower of the queen
7. Long gone by
8. Perjury and sanctity
9. Fairyland fanfare
10. Himmel så trind

ILLUMINATE - New album!
Germany poets of dark romance, ILLUMINATE, finished their tenth record
(!) "Zwei Seelen" to stir up the scene. The toweringly album will be
available in the stores the 29th of September.
The album is heavier than the
previous ones, thank you drums and more guitars, as singer Johannes Berthold says.
The thrill of anticipation in the fan-scene was amplified by the gig at this
years WAVE GOTIK TREFFEN where the new Gothic Rock ballad "Es Brennt Die
Welt" stunned every fan. "The song describes with strong metaphors
what happened in the night of 13th February 1945.
In that night, 40.000 people
died because of the senseless bombing of the city of Dresden", says
Johannes. The album features the typical dark ILLUMINATE style with songs like
"Tote Gärten" and "Siehst Du Mich in Dir?" but also fresh
tones with tunes like the hit "Wer Lieben will!." - a song without
An intended contrast: "The duality of the both sides of the
album must be drastic and striking. On this record, we have well-known romantic
and emotional moments, but also tragic and depressive moments." As a
bonus, the first ever-live CD in the history of ILLUMINATE will be included.
The concert took place in Mexico, October 2005. "Zwei Seelen" shows
the rocking side of the band and convinces with its intense and emotional

IGNITE - new video for
"Bleeding" - Century Media Records News
- Bleeding' is the first video from IGNITE's new
album - Our Darkest Days'
that was released on Century Media Records in
Europe May 15th, 2006. IGNITE who have been crafting some of the most
definitive melodic west coast hardcore over the past decade are also known for
their no holds barred social and politically engaging lyrics. This song and
video is no different as the subject deals with the Iraq occupation by the U.S.
As bassist Brett Rasmussen explains, it is about - the lies our Government told
us to get us into a war without taking the rest of the world's consideration
Vocalist Zoli Teglas who wrote the lyrics has a
younger brother currently stationed in Iraq where as he explains - he is forced
to risk his life driving Halliburton execs to meetings that benefit the
politicians and not the people.'
The performance footage of the video was shot in
the blistering California Desert. Interspersed with news footage of the war and
intense images, the message is driven home by director Chris Sims (Lamb Of God,
As I Lay Dying).

and fan success as the best Ignite album. - The album's strength lies not only
in its strong musical qualities but also its socially conscious and challenging
lyrics' says PunkBands.com which goes on to call it - The best album so far in
Popular website for heavy music Lambgoat.com
calls the band - one of the only remaining hardcore bands from the mid 90's that
have never compromised their beliefs or their music.'
IGNITE are currently killing all with their
appearances at huge European fests including With Full Force Festival (D) which
had 10,000 people singing along with Zoli as well as Hellfest (F), Graspop (B)
and Pressure Fest (D).
The band is also doing European tour dates with
With Honor and Convict. They will be back stateside for late August and will be
playing with the legendary Gorilla Biscuits for their reunion tour on Aug 21st
at The Glasshouse, Pomona CA.
- Any band that refuses to be pigeonholed in the
early 21st century should be commended, and Ignite continue on their path with
their 2006 release Our Darkest Days.' - ALLMUSIC.COM

great tunes and determined to wring every ounce of emotion out of frontman Zoli
Teglas's vocal range.' - KERRANG! (UK)
