FLOTSAM & JETSAM's Doomsday for the Deceiver 20th Anniversary Set

"Flotz Fanz".

Here we are again facing another release, but this one is different" On November 3rd/6th we will be unleashing the very album that put us on the map in the metal world.

Doomsday for the Deceiver 20th Anniversary Set

The set will include unreleased material and live footage from the Bootlegger in Phoenix from 1985 as well as other live footage. Also included is a photo history that goes back before Mike and Ed joined the band."

Original drummer Kelly Smith was nice enough to provide some inside info on Flotsam's history and the upcoming release:

The Beginning - Stage One

"In 1982 I had put together a band during my early high school years, "PARADOX". It was 2 guitar players and myself, no singer or bass player. The usual makings of an everyday early stage garage band. So we decided to run an ad in the local paper since we didn't know any bass players. So a few called back but no one stuck, than I received a knock at the door. Here stood a curly haired guy with his black explorer bass guitar in hand. So we met and proceeded to the back porch of my parent's house. We practiced for a few months and then Jason asked do you know of any other guitar players that like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and the like."

Stage Two - New Line Up

"I asked around and got a hold of the next set of guitar players that would eventually turn us towards the path of Flotsam. Kevin Horton - Rhythm Guitar and Mark Vasquez - Lead Guitar. We started to learn all sorts of great music; UFO, Iron Maiden, Motley Crue, Judas Priest, and Ted Nugent.

At our first gig professionally as, "DREDLOX". Jason sang lead and had acquired a friendship with Jeff Newsome who at the time was running sound for UFO on the road. We played at the infamous "Mason Jar Lounge" in Phoenix. I'm sure a lot of you who have been through Phoenix have been there or played there. So anyways back to the story. We played that evening and we were so loud that we knocked eight glasses off of the bar. We didn't get paid and the owner fired us on the spot."

Stage Three - A Singer Evolved

"We made a decision that a front man might suit us better for the music we were playing.

I was in summer school and I remembered seeing this guy in my class who sang in the talent show earlier that year. He sang a lot like Halford although what he sang at the show wasn't metal he was still an awesome singer. So I asked him if he wanted to audition. He had to learn 4 Judas Priest songs in 4 days. I am not certain but this is the list as I remember it:

1. Desert Plains

2. Hot Rockin'

3. Victim of Changes

4. The Green Manaleshi

So we played on his back patio for his audition. He kicked ass like no one we had heard or seen. We put him on 2 week probation. Later on he took a denim jacket cut off the sleeves and wrote "2 WEEKER" on the back. We joked about that for years. Shortly after AK joined the clan we wanted to get another lead player in the band. We were heavily influenced by the dual lead scenario of the bands of the era; Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and the like. We found Ed Carlson from a rival band in Phoenix called Exodus, it's not the same one you're thinking of; I think every city had an Exodus then.

We also decided that we should change our name to "THE DOGZ" as DREDLOX didn't suit us at all. Ed joined the band and played his first show with DOGZ after only five days in the band. We played at the local ice arena with local heroes Surgical Steel. As time went on we developed our own repertoire of music and locally we started to get a name for ourselves. We played with artists like: Armored Saint, Riot, Exciter, Mercyful Fate, Alcatraz featuring - Yngvie Malmsteen and a many others."

Stage Four - Transformation

"So at this point the line up was:

Eric A.K. - Vocals

Jason Newsted - Bass

Mark Vasquez - Lead Guitar

Ed Carlson - Lead Guitar

Kelly D Smith - Drums

In 1984 or late '83 we decided another name change would do us some good. We had written a song back in the DOGZ days called "Flotsam and Jetsam". It was written from the Tolkien Trilogy of two drifters in the story. We were getting stronger locally and writing more and more. During this time I was in deep in my addiction to cocaine and then it happened. I was indicted for the sales of narcotics and sent to prison. Not long, 30 days in D.O.C. During my time in prison, Mark decided he wanted to go another direction and left the band. Jason and the remaining members sought out Mike Gilbert, who at the time was 17 years old. He was in the local band called "The Kids".

So when I got out of the clink they had already started to write songs together."

Stage Five - New Direction

"Before Mike Gilbert, Mark had been the main writer in the band. Jason was always the lyrics guy with musical input as well. Now that Mike was in the band and things were starting to make the final turn towards the sound and feel of Flotsam is known for. I was very resistant to the new wave of metal that was appearing. I was still in the Maiden/Priest stages of music.

Now Metallica, Anthrax, S.O.D, Megadeth and Metal Church were coming up in the scene. I remember it clear as day when the band was pushing me "play it faster" and I was mad that I had too. I grew up with Neil Peart and Rush as my Idol and now there was no room for that. In fact it was the writing of the song Metal Shock that this happened. The first song Mike wrote for Flotsam was I Live You Die. Pretty amazing, Huh?

We started getting more speed metal songs under are belt. Jason was doing the business part of things at this point. We used to play at the local club "The Bootlegger". It became our home. Gloria Cavelera (manager and wife to Max from Soulfly, Sepultura) was the former owner of the Bootlegger. She had a battle of the bands at her club and the band that won broke up.

 Gloria gave the studio time to us. She was the one responsible for the making of the Metal Shock Demo which eventually got Flotsam signed to Metal Blade Records and of course led to Jason's departure into Metallica."

Stage Six - Evolution

"After the demo was completed, Jason came up with a plan to get some of the people around us to invest in us and duplicate the demo and send it out to magazines, fanzines, radio stations and record labels. We also sold them through Zia records a small local chain in Phoenix.

All the proceeds went to the promotion of the band. So we made our first MTV like video "HAMMERHEAD" in Jason's apartment living room. Really, no kidding!!! We used to practice there as well in a room just off to the side of the apartment. We also recorded live video from the Bootlegger which we sent out to Brian Slagel of Metal Blade Records. We had finally gained a record deal with Metal Blade records. It was amazing to us."

Stage Seven - Revelation

"In the winter of 1985 we went to Los Angeles and started recording "Doomsday for the Deceiver". We had a tight budget 12000.00 to make the entire record. A time period of two weeks total. I had two days to record my drum tracks and I had fifteen stitches in my arm five days prior. Life was chaotic but it was good. We were making the first record of our lives. It was very surreal to think from the back porch to this point how it all worked out the way it did.

So on July 26th 1986, Flotsam was unleashed on the world with a label behind them. We had Roadrunner the best metal label in Europe supporting us as well. Some of you may remember that in 1986 we were the first band in Kerrang's history to achieve the 6k rating. As a band we had never at that point even toured any farther than California with Megadeth on a few shows and at the Country Club in LA. It was amazing how we were buzzing the scene. So it was working well and the BUZZ was BIG."

Stage Eight - An Open Door

"On September 27th, 1986, the world of metal suffered a terrible blow. Cliff Burton had been killed on the Master of Puppets tour in Europe. No one could believe it. It was strange as we had seen Metallica in Phoenix only months before. That night I stood in front of the stage banging my head with Cliff up above on stage and now he's gone. They had been on tour with WASP in the states.

We all wondered what would happen now. Then Metallica announced they were going to audition to replace Cliff. Jason had been working with one of the A&R's from Elektra keeping an open dialogue since Doomsday had been released. Mike Alago, who was responsible for signing Metallica to Elektra Records as well as Metal Church, Rob Zombie and many others in metal, was a factor in helping Jason get the audition as well as Brian Slagel and a few others.

Mike Gilbert and Kevin Horton helped Jason to learn the songs so he could go in finely tuned for the job. Jason is not a person that fails when he sets his mind on a goal. He had been through a lot up to this point. He even stayed in a 10 x 20 steel warehouse that we rented to practice in. He was jobless and homeless and in Phoenix where it gets up to 115 degrees. He lived on only peanut butter sandwiches and whatever he could scrounge up. So now he is looking at the ultimate gig. He wasn't leaving without the gig. As you all know he made it."

Stage Nine - Moving On

"The last show that Jason played with Flotsam was exactly 20 years to the day of this release. That's right Oct 31st, 1986. There is a picture from that night inside the anniversary box set. Quite ironic that it ended up this way. Let me reassure you it was not at all planned this way. He was and is an awesome choice to this day for Metallica. It is unfortunate that they had a falling out."

Stage 10 - And So On

"Since his departure we created the second master piece being one of the fan favorites "No Place for Disgrace". On Elektra Records 1988 Jason was a co-writer on three of the songs on this record as well. These were written before he left to join Metallica.

No Place For Disgrace
I Live You Die
Other Albums include:

When the Storm Comes Down - MCA 1990

Cuatro - MCA 1992

Drift - MCA 1995

HIGH - Metal Blade Records 1997 *Last record with Mike Gilbert and Kelly D Smith

Unnatural Selection - 1999 *Craig Nelson and Mark Simpson enter the band

My God - 2001

Dreams of Death - 2005 most current release

When I got the remix copy of Doomsday I nearly cried at the performance and the realization of how great a band we were at that time. We practiced nearly everyday for at least 2-3 hours and even more after Jason left as we wanted to be the best metal band as well as the best musicians we could be.

We lived it, we ate it, and we breathed it in and made it apart of each of us. I hope it is that way with you out there. I am very proud that I was a part of this project and had the chance to play with such awesome musicians and work with great talent behind the board.

Enjoy the Anniversary of Doomsday, for us you have made the path along the way more than great. It is unexplainable."

As Fans and Believers of Flotsam YOU FUCKIN' RULE.

We thank you!!

Flotz ‘til death

LIZZY BORDEN working hard on new record!

LIZZY BORDEN has signed with Coallier Entertainment Ltd. (W.A.S.P., TWISTED SISTER).

"We are all very excited to be with Coallier Entertainment," the band said in a statement. "Touring in all territories has been our goal for a long, long time and now with Coallier Entertainment booking us, we can play in places that we never have before and bring the LIZZY BORDEN show worldwide."

For booking information, contact or

LIZZY BORDEN is working on a new record and is looking to recreate the LIZZY BORDEN logo to fit with the new concept. The logo shape has not changed very much over the years, but the inside of the logo has gone from red with blades ("Give 'em the Axe") to a hypnotizing green ("Visual Lies") to the American flag with exposed bones ("The Murderess Metal Roadshow") and then finally on a contract signed by the horned one himself ("Deal with the Devil").

Commented Lizzy: "With every record we try and make the logo fit the concept. The concept for the new record is very dark and ominous and we need the logo to reflect that.

"We've seen some amazing artwork on MySpace and other places on the net and would love to find that artist who understands Lizzy Borden and be the one to pen the logo for the forthcoming Lizzy Borden record."

Biomechanical: Painkiller cover version Mp3 now online

London's progressive metal thrashers Biomechanical have placed online an advance preview of their Judas Priest cover track Painkiller, which they recorded last week with the original Judas Priest producer Chris Tsangarides at the production helm. Their cover of one of metal's all-time standout cuts is now available on Mp3 for fans to preview online here:

The cover of the legendary ‘Painkiller' was recorded over three days with the track's original producer Tsangarides, at his own studio in Dover, UK.Singer John K from Biomechanical recently spoke about his appreciation of the track, which has featured as a highlight of the band's set for some time, stating: "When the song was first introduced to the scene in 1990 it blew everything out of the water, it was an instant classic and sure withstood the test of time. We're really glad to be able to do homage to the original".

You can take a look at a pic of the band with Chris Tsangardies in the studio here

‘Painkiller' will be released by Earache on a limited edition re-dux of Biomechanical's second album ‘The Empires Of The Worlds', which will also include 3 bonus Quicktime Videos including behind the scenes footage of the band in the studio and on location filming their promo clip last year.It is instores across UK and Europe on November 3rd.

News from Vomitort

Vomitory will enter Leon Music Studios outside Karlstad/Sweden on December 3rd to start recording the new album.

"This time we'll work with producer Rikard Löfgren, who is the founder/owner of Leon Music. Rikard Löfgren is still a pretty unfamiliar name within the death metal scene.

He mostly works with more commercial music but he is a great producer and has his roots in metal. We know the guy since ages and we have great confidence in him."

"It's going to feel strange to do a new Vomitory album not working with our side-kick Henrik Larsson, but we feel it's time to try something new.

Since Vomitory isn't exactly an experimental band, we feel that working in a new studio with a new producer is a good way of renewing the band. We have two weeks for the recording and one week of mix and mastering."

The album is planned to be released by the end of April next year through Metal Blade Records.

Deicide's dynamic frontman, Glen Benton, spews out musical wisdom

Glen Benton is known for his poignant, yet cutting opinions on life and religion (amongst many other things) and has never been one to stray away from telling the brutal truth.

In the December issue of metals' most thought provoking publication, DECIBEL, Glen Benton throws out some opinionated darts of wrath on a variety of artists in the "Call and Response" section.

Benton was asked to evaluate and provide his thoughts on a variety of musical tracks and subsequently laid out varying thoughts on tracks from artists such as SHAT, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, and IRON MAIDEN.

In a true melting pot of the minds, when asked to share his thoughts about the radio hit "Sexy Back" by JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, he adamantly replied "Sorry, I don't do techno in any way, shape, or form."

Pick up the December issue of DECIBEL (check Decibel out online @ to check out more of Glen's thoughts on these assorted titles and experience articles that present some of the most forward thinking opinions in extreme music today!

Rare Ewigkeit performance Live from a Bunker

EWIGKEIT - "Live from a bunker" was recorded on Saturday the 4th of October 2006.

Mr Fog outlines the plan:

"It really is an old nuclear bunker - converted into a studio, it belongs to a rich friend of mine. Its on the outskirts of Brighton, and is a underground concrete complex of 3 rooms. The room we used is the reinforced room which is supposed to be where you ideally go when the nuclear strike takes place. The ceiling is 6ft thick, with a lead lining and wire mesh throughout"


James Fogarty (vox/ guitar), Jordan Long (bass) (nominated for a Perrier award for his comedic ability and an in demand actor) & Andrew Bridge (keys and digital manipulations) Camera by Anthony Gates

Mr. Fog, front man and reclusive genius behind Ewigkeit states "EWIGKEIT played it's first live studio performance deep in a converted nuclear bunker because due to the themes of the music, we thought it would be the safest place to escape the tyrannical power of the New World Order"

He continues - "the bunker is (as far as we know) bunker-buster proof, and impenetrable to US spy satellites"

The gig which lasts for about half an hour "it is dedicated to all those who fight the powers-that-be past, present and future and the successful continuation of anti-establishment musical warfare"

Mister Fog also mentions that "The gig induced extreme paranoia"

Fogarty continues to prepare for all-out total war with the illuminati through sonic mind altering and anarchic riot inducing noise. Battle plans are currently being drawn up to continue where the last musical assault on the fascistic global elite left off (Conspiritus Earache rec. 2005)

Devilish Impressions + More Conquer Records news

DEVILISH IMPRESSIONS who has signed records deal with British label Conquer Records in June 2006 has been confirmed as a main support act for AETERNUS on their European tour in November/December this year. The band will be promoting their latest effort - "Plurima Mortis Imago" which is out now.

The band's first official release consists of 9 new compositions, plus - as a special bonus - video clip to "SataniChaoSymphony". DEVILISH IMPRESSIONS' new album may be a big step forward on the Avant-Garde Black/Death metal scene, as this time the band goes even further to gain more brutality combined with unique atmosphere and a subtle melody of each track.

According to one of the band's member: „ (...) it is a record for every metal fan, as it contains a mass of technical death metal riffs as well as essential dose of original melodies, breathtakingly fast blasts, raging vocals and beautiful keyboard passages, enveloped in a totally sick and furious atmosphere of all-pervading coldness, rebellion and licentiousness!

With this record we want to prove that not everything within this field has been said. Moving across the genre makes it possible to distance oneself and play the music a little differently, but without losing the original spirit of what metal has always been, is and what it should be in the future!!!" (Quazarre)

One of "Plurima Mortis Imago" producers is Arek Malczewski, who is also the producer and sound engineer for Behemoth, Vesania, Asgaard and Lost Soul amongst others. Editing and mixing were carried out in the home studio of Asgaard's keyboard player, Wojtek Kostrzewa, and finally the album was mastered by the Wieslawski Brothers of the Hertz Studio in Bialystok (Vader, Decapitated, Hate etc.).

"I will hold a guitar clinic next Wednesday (October 25th, 13:00 CET) in RumEtt at Dunkers Kulturhus in Helsingborg [Sweden]. The clinic is arranged by Mega Musikgymnasium and is mainly for their guitar students, but since the room is open to the public, anyone can attend if they are interested.

I will play along to songs with DARKANE and [solo project] Non-Human Level, and will talk about what I think is important for a metal guitarist."

"We've had a very successful three weeks on the hell on earth tour passing England, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Austria, Italy, Danmark and of course the center of the world, Switzerland. We'll be finishing the tour report soon so you can check out where we've been rocking out.

We want to thank all the people who made this trip so f'ing amazing for us, most of all Schlumpf "der Kassierer" and MAD for making it happen, all our drivers (we stopped counting at five), AK, our drinking buddies in Heaven Shall Burn including Benny and Maroon plus Pappe, Narziss, God Forbid, Purified in Blood (Manowar form Norway) and our French compagnons from Perfect Murder - très bien.

All hail to the local promoters for making it all possible and once again the people coming to the shows, especially the crowd at Kofmehl Solothurn for making it one of our best shows ever!

Some other news:

We have some new merch which should also be uploaded soon, plus there will be various new designs made by Imperial Clothing. We will also upload some more pictures soonish.

We also started booking shows for 2007, first date confirmed is the Rock Hard Festival where we will play Friday with Heaven Shall Burn, Grave Digger and Amon Amarth. We're working on a trip to southern Europe, plus on a headlining tour next year.

We're not going on the X-Mass tour as you might have catched, this is final. We're sorry about this and thank all the people who sent emails and phoned in - we will make sure we come by soon, especially to Paris.

Finally we will be presenting the X-Mas Mosh on the 22nd of december with Kingshot, besides us Soul Demise, Dark Day Dungeon, Vale Tudo and Taste of Tears will be entering the stage of the Galvanik in Zug.

The Haunted confirm headline UK tour for Feb 2007

Swedish metal titans The Haunted have announced that they will be returning to the UK in February 2007 for a full UK tour in support of their new album "The Dead Eye" - the full touring package is still to be confirmed and will be announced shortly along with additional shows.

The band have been confirmed to play the following venues so far:

04-Feb Bristol Academy 2

05-Feb Birmingham Academy 2

06-Feb Dublin Temple Bar

07-Feb Liverpool Academy 2

08-Feb Nottingham Rock City

09-Feb Glasgow Cathouse

10-Feb Manchester Hop & Grape

11-Feb Leeds Cockpit

01.11.2006 London Underworld (w/ Mercenary & Needleye)

With their highly anticipated new album only a week away from release and already receiving rave reviews in the media worldwide it is safe to say The Haunted are still a musical force to be reckoned with, they have pushed themselves to create something unique that effectively combines elements of their previous works while exploring new ideas to continuously challenge themselves. Vocalist Peter Dolving says it best, "This album is simply more diverse, dynamic and heavy as fu*k. Look forward to an album that we're all extremely proud of."

Their video from the album will be for the track "The Flood" is complete and will be hitting TV Channels very soon .. if you think you know the band, think again you'll be seeing something rather different and unexpected.

Norma Jean - "Redeemer" UK release date confirmed & European Tour in January

After being released in the US through Solid State Records and debuting at

#38 in the Billboard Top 100, Atlanta-based NORMA JEAN will now unleash their new album ‘Redeemer' their latest slab of emotion-laden noisy sound eruptions in UK via Century Media Records on January 15th 2007.

With 2005 released "O' God, The Aftermath", drummer Daniel Davison, bassist Jake Schultz, and guitarists Chris Day and Scottie Henry welcomed new vocalist and Arkansa´s native Cory Brandan to their lineup and took their artful, technical noise to the proverbial next level, earning critical acclaim and a 2006 Grammy nomination (for Asterik Studios' awe-inspiring artwork) in the process, and embarking on a tough touring schedule that most recently found them on Ozzfest 2006's second stage.

Produced by Ross Robinson (At The Drive-In, From First To Last, Sepultura) at Radio Star Studios, the weird angles and difficult guitar figures that comprised "O' God, The Aftermath" are still present on "Redeemer", but that album's refined, very-much-studio feel has also given way to raw atmospheres in which you can practically see the sweat running onto the instruments. Brandan, who's already proved himself a formidable vocalist, fully comes into his own on "Redeemer" with a style that veers between unhinged screaming and down-on-his-knees melodic belting.

Slide it into your player, and you will feel "Redeemer" more than any other NORMA JEAN album. Emotional, spiritual, visceral, physical - this isn't just the third album the band wanted to make; it's the career-defining statement they had to!

The tracklisting for "Redeemer" is as follows:

1. A Grand Scene For A Color Film

2. Blueprints For Future Homes

3. A Small Spark Vs. A Great Forest

4. A Temperamental Widower

5. The End Of All Things Will Be Televised

6. Songs Sound Much Sadder

7. The Longest Lasting Statement

8. Amnesty Please

9. Like Swimming Circles

10. Cemetery Like A Stage

11. No Passenger : No Parasite

NORMA JEAN will be touring Europe in early 2007 together with He Is Legend (who will release their new album "Suck Out The Poison" through Century Media on January 15th in Europe) & a still to be confirmed third band, see below for the so far confirmed dates!

16.01.2007, Birmingham (UK) @ Academy 3

17.01.2007, Manchester (UK) @ Academy 3

Jared Anderson RIP

Earache Records would like to express its condolences to the family and friends of Jared Anderson who passed away on October 14.

Jared made a lasting impression on the Earache catalogue with his contribution to the Hate Eternal album 'King of All Kings', as well as his masterful live performances with the band, a feat he was to repeat with equal class when fronting Morbid Angel after the departure of Steve Tucker.

Earache label manager Dan Tobin commented on Anderson's passing:

'I think Erik Rutan has pretty much said it all when it comes to expressing the regret and shock at Jared's passing. I only met the guy a couple of times when he came through the UK with Morbid Angel, but he struck me as a thoughtful and dedicated musician who was able to take on the challenges presented to him by both Hate Eternal and Morbid Angel. Particularly with Morbid Angel, he won over fans with his wholehearted commitment to the music and also the fans of the music. The response from the fans to the news of his death only goes to prove the positive impression he made on people.'

Severe Torture report from tour

Severe Torture currently on tour with Vader and God Dethroned have been keeping a diary whilst out on the road.

Here's the SEVERE TORTURE tour report so far:

"The tour started out on the 28th of September in Berlin(DE). After hooking up with Vader, God Dethroned and crew we picked our bunks in the nightliner.

This bus was going to be our home for 6 weeks and as far as our experience goes, this was the best and biggest bus we ever had! The first show was better than we expected. Turnout was good for a Thursday (200+) and people seemed to like us. It definitely was a perfect start of the tour!

The second day we went to Jena(DE). The venue was great and we spent the afternoon with some sightseeing in the center of the city. Turnout was good again and the audience was wicked as well. The beer tasted very good and both God Dethroned and Vader gave good shows as well.

Next on the list was Giebelstadt (DE). We definitely want to give a huge shoutout to the people there who organized the Bringer of Death-fest for the wonderful evening. More or less than 500 people showed up and gave us a warm welcome!

In Hannover(DE) we hooked up with some of our friends from Dew-Scented at the bar after the steaming hot show we did over there. It must have been about 40 degees Celsius on the stage that night! Getting in the ' Tourmode'

took a couple of days but now everything is the way it's supposed to be. The turnout so far has been great and the fans have been really kicking ass at all of the shows we've done so far.

The 5th show was in Mons(BE) and it's always good to play in Belgium! We played a tight show with a lot of crazy fans and after the show it was partytime with Jupiler, Chimay and belgian weed!

Yesterday we played the 'Nouveau Casino' club in Paris(FR). The club was packed with crazy metalheads who were out for blood and it was amazing! We had to shorten our setlist cause we arrived late at the club due some nightliner problems but that didn't stop us from giving a brutal show! The fans were great and after the show we hooked up with our friends in Aborted and we enjoyed Paris at night a little bit.

Today (04.10.06) we are playing Nancy(FR) in a club called Azimut 854. The club provides us with enough showers, a fitnessroom and enough backstage space and that's very much appreciated after yesterdays club. The show is sold out and our French fans are going crazy again! We love France!

Next is Lausanne(CH), big venue, good catering and a huge stage. The show went ok but some of us are feeling a little bit sick and with 20 people in one bus that isn't very comfortable. Dennis did a small DJ set after the show before the long trip we have ahead (900KM) towards Rennes (FR).

It had been four years since we last played Rennes (FR) and we had some good memories playing Antipode. So it was good to see nothing had changed and the crowd was sick as ever that night! Afterwards we had a cool parking lot party untill early in the morning with some die-hard metalheads. Rennes already proved to be a highlight on this tour.

In total contrast to the Rennes show, the show in Le Havre (FR) had to be cancelled because of obvious reasons. The venue was a discotheque which was totally unfit for concert shows. No PA, no lights, no backstage...NOTHING!

So we had to do what anyone else would hard! We took the nightliner to the nearby city of Caen and treated ourselves to some welldeserved R & R.

The tour continued on to Limoges(FR) (where Sardonic left the tour) and after that, Irun, where we last played four years ago on the Cannibal Corpse tour. So with the weather getting better we headed out to Vigo where we played The Iguana Club. This somewhat strange venue proved to be a setting for a very nice evening with a good audience and a killer athmosphere.

The next show in Porto (P) was another highlight on this trek. The Hard Club must probably be one of the most beautiful clubs around with a breathtaking view over Porto.

 Luckily we got the chance to check out the beautiful city and all that it has to offer. To top it off, we played to an incredible crowd that night and it was a special experience for us as well as for Vader and God Dethroned.

From Porto we went on back to Spain for the rest of the week with the first stop being Sevilla where spanish gorelords Avulsed were added to the bill for a one off stint. Again, the spanish crowd showed that they must be the craziest motherfu*kers on the planet. The venue was packed with a 450+ capacity. From Sevilla it was on towards Murcia on friday the 13th, and Madrid and Barcelona for the weekend.

The Madrid show was sold out and again the venue was packed with deathmetal fanatics and we, together with Vader and God Dethroned gave them a run for their money.

Due to the routine in our set we created space to add one more song to our set, this being the song "Impelled to Kill" from our sophomore release " Misanthrophic Carnage". Bashed, beaten and battered, the crowd left the venue at the end of the evening as we set sails towards the next show in Barcelona.

We arrived a couple hours too early at Mephisto club so we had some time to go to the beach and relax a bit. The show went very well and after that we took a hotel to sleap in a normal bed and take some good showers. Next day we had the day off in Barcelona and we took the oppertunity to do some tourist stuff and enjoy this city a bit."

POTENTIA ANIMI celebrate Christmas

The lord's dearest servants are back! And the brotherhood known as POTENTIA ANIMI wouldn't be POTENTIA ANIMI if they let the Lord's main celebration, the birth of His son, pass them by uncommented.

That's why these not-so-kosher monks honor us with an EP titled "Sind die Lichter angezündet?" ("Are the Lights on?"), presenting their very own statement about the birth of God's son. And the timing couldn't be more perfect: the beginning of the advent season, just before the whole Christmas business gets serious. Be prepared for December 4th, 2006!

On "Sind die Lichter angezündet?" there's something for everyone. POTENTIA ANIMI's humorous adaptations of classic German Christmas carols like „Morgen Kinder wird's was geben", Kling, Glöckchen, kling!" oder „Guten Abend, gute Nacht", will reach beyond their usual parish, well into the hearts of family celebrations complete with aunts and grannys.

Hier die Tracklist:

1. Des Jahres letzte Stund

2. Morgen Kinder wird's was geben

3. Es ist ein Ros entsprungen

4. Stille Nacht

5. Tausend Sterne sind ein Dom

6. Kling, Glöckchen, kling!

7. Oh Tannebaum

8. Schnabausens arme Kind

To live up to the tradition of these classic songs, POTENTIA ANIMI have used both prominent and exotic help. Prominent guest musicians such as cellist B. Deutung (INCHTABOKATABLES) and Alexander Goldmann with his modified church organ Lola (LOLA ANGST), and exotic instruments like Indian tabla drums and a lita (Indian guitar with 24,000 strings), which underline the musically ambitious character that POTENTIA ANIMI have preserved despite their rather obscene sense of humor.

The band, currently in preparation for a new album which should see the light of day around the end of February 2007, has also announced details of its new singer.

DIMMU BORGIR - Recording update

Norwegian symphonic black metallers DIMMU BORGIR have entered Studio Fredman with producer Fredrik Nordström to begin recording their new album for an early 2007 release. DIMMU guitarist Silenoz checks in with the following recording update: "So, just to let you know, everything moves along nicely in the studio, perhaps a bit too well"?

With past studio ghost experiences in mind, something is just bound to happen" I'm sure of it. Well, apart from being the typical pessimist, at least it didn't take us too long to get all the basic rhythm guitar tracks down and even better - it sounds awesome!

A fat and razor-sharp tone, without compromise, hitting you right between the eyes! Proper equipment — Engl amps, ESP guitars and Seymour Duncan pickups — make things hell of a lot easier, I say. Leads/solos and acoustic/clean guitars will be laid down later when everything else is ready. Bass and keys are up next.

We expect it to sound nothing less than grandiose once this beast is finished. Oh, yeah, almost forgot, we have the album title as well, but we're not gonna announce it until the time is right!"

News from Rich Walker of the Miskatonic Foundation

In case you didn't realise, THE LAMP OF THOTH are now part of the MISKATONIC empire. Words cannot express how happy I am about this, rarely does England produce such quality mystical occult orientated Doom. They harken back to the elders of our beloved metal history such as PAGAN ALTAR, HELL or DEEP SWITCH. I predict geat things from them, listening to their demo's sends shivers down my spine.

I finished the layouts for the WARNING CD, will go to press I hope in the next week.

DESOLATION ANGELS will follow shortly after I recieve the WARNING back, we need to adjust some of the layouts on that (DA) and address some packaging issues quickly. DESTRUCTOR is postponed until I work out something with Jamie, it WILL happen, just not sure when, time constraints mean they cannot get into a studio just yet.

Will begin mastering HELL in the new year, need to meet up with Kev and Tony ASAP, so thats on the cards for around late spring I hope for the CD release first. THE LAMP OF THOTH album will be recorded next year too, hopefully spring, but we have to make sure everything is OK at their end first. Also around then should be PAGAN ALTAR "Mythical & Magical" on limited vinyl, and summer should see the release of the COLD MOURNING Demo's LP and THE LAMP OF THOTH CD

Represses will be made of the first SLOUGH FEG CD and REVELATION "Frozen masque" all been well. By then I hope to generate enough money to pay REVELATION their royalties at long last, and break into profit on the SLOUGH FEG seeing as Mike Scalzi spends money like nobody's business on hot tubs and masseurs.....

No prices are decided yet, just please wait. Once the ball gets rolling, it will seem unstoppable I hope. Somewhere amongst all that too will be HAIL BRITANNIA II as well....

THRESHOLD - confirm album cover artist

Threshold have confirmed that their new CD artwork will be created by Thomas Ewerhard, who's credits include Kings X, Vanden Plas and Asia. Thomas Ewerhard has been responsible for Threshold's artwork since 1998, including the iconic Hypothetical and Subsurface covers.
The title of Threshold's new album will be Pilot In The Sky Of Dreams. The band plan to finish recording during November, with a release date planned for 2007.

HAMMERFALL - "threshold" charts

The story of success continues: Mightly HAMMERFALL conquered # 15 of the German Media Control charts with their new album "Threshold"! Thus the Swedes continue to stand for high quality over a longer period of time as their previous records also managed to capture the German Top 20 on a regular basis:

2005 "Chapter V - Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken" # 12
2002 "Crimson Thunder" # 13
2000 "Renegade" # 17
1998 "Legacy Of Kings" # 15

Also GREAT NEWS from HAMMERFALL's home country as the guys managed to enter the album charts on # 1 (!!!) there last week - "Threshold" on the top!!! More chart notations Europe-wide to be announced soon!

SIX FEET UNDER cancel X-Mass-Festival tour

Unfortunately we have to deliver bad news for all SIX FEET UNDER maniacs. The Floridian death metallers had to cancel their participation on this year's X-Mass-Festival tour, because they want to focus on the work for their new album.

The band has issued the following statement:
"We will not be appearing on this year's X-Mass Festivals in Europe. To all our European fans, please accept our apologies. We are currently in the studio 'till the end of the year working on our new CD, which will be released in spring of 2007."

THE COUNTY MEDICAL EXAMINERS have completed work on their Relapse debut, Olidous Operettas.

Olidous Operettas, the band's first recorded discharge in three years, was recorded and mixed at Tillinghast Workshop and is scheduled for a January 2007 release. The complete track listing is as follows: “Casper's Dictum”, “Morgagnic Anatomics”, “Necrotic Apologues”, “Blunt Force Flight”, “The Virchow Postmortem Procedure”, “Expeditious Evisceratory Mishap”, “Maturating Decompositional Gas” and “Kaleidoscopic Malacia”.

A sample of the Olidous Operettas artwork can be previewed here and a three minute audio teaser can be heard via the band's official MySpace page

THE COUNTY MEDICAL EXAMINERS (TCME) are a collection of real-life pathologists with an unhealthy adoration of and fixation on CARCASS. Formed by Dr. Morton Fairbanks M.D. (Guitar) and Dr. Jack Putnam M.D. (Drums), the band--rounded out by 63-year-old Dr. Guy Radcliffe--have always felt that the label "Carcass Clone" should be a badge of honor and distinction, and pursue that emulation with an almost religious zeal.

TCME have previously released one full-length and a split album (w/Sweden's GENERAL SURGERY) via Razorback Records.

MISERY INDEX tour dates

Misery Index has announced several more weeks of U.S. tour dates, extending their current headlining tour in support of their acclaimed new album Discordia.

Additionally, MISERY INDEX has completed work on their first music video for Discordia for the track “Conquistadores”. The video was filmed on location in Brooklyn, NY with director Rick Carmonaand producers Kim Resteghini and Melissa Manousos of Raging Nations Films. Still images from the video, which will make it's international debut shortly, can be viewed here.

THE HAUNTED Launch The Making of “The Flood” Video Online

Swedish titans THE HAUNTED recently completed a stunning new video for the track “The Flood” with renowned director Roger Johansson (Arch Enemy, In Flames). Click on the link below for exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the shoot.">The Making of "The Flood"

The track comes from The Dead Eye, their highly anticipated new album (in stores Oct. 31st) that is sure to surprise and possibly overwhelm the entire metal community. The group is set to make their triumphant return to the U.S. this November on the Blackest of The Black tour with Danzig, labelmates Lacuna Coil, Belphegor and Asesino (see below for their complete fall touring itinerary).

A special collector's edition of The Dead Eye will also be available, featuring two bonus tracks (“The Highwire” and “The Program”), a bonus DVD with the “Making of The Dead Eye,” music videos for “All Against All” and No Compromise” and two live audio versions of “99” and “Abysmal.” The videos and live tracks are all from rEVOLVEr, the band's 2004 album.

Since their inception, the group have been pigeonholed as a thrash unit, a moniker further solidified by their lineup featuring two ex-members of the legendary At The Gates, but the quintet have continually evolved over the years and strived to create offerings that defied the musical boundaries attached to the genre. With this album, THE HAUNTED ultimately prove that their songwriting prowess is indefinable and undeniable, hoping to show everyone that within this genre, there are no limitations.

On Oct. 31st, THE HAUNTED return with their most accomplished and dynamic work yet.

ULTRA DOLPHINS debut full-length


While this won't be in stores and distros until November 7th, we just got the debut ULTRA DOLPHINS full-length MAR in the mail and it turned out totally sweet! The CDs are here now, and the vinyl should be here in about two weeks.

ULTRA DOLPHINS debut album, briefly titled MAR, represents a fairly major departure from the band's previous spazz-oriented, garage band freak-outs. Without losing focus on songwriting, the off-kilter structures move continually forward building up frantic but calculated momentum.

Several piano tracks accompany drums and noisy guitars along with well-placed vocal melodies. The result is a dizzying but somehow unified listening experience which features a band at the height of their creative prowess. The packaging for this thing is equally intense, with a 6-panel chipboard jacket and 12-page song book. A solid debut album to say the least, and a true masterpiece to say the most!

We're totally amped on how this beast turned out and you can check out three MP3s from the album here:

Vinyl folks, thanks for being patient, the 12-page booklets were actually kind of hard to get made so it got a bit delayed. We should have them in a couple weeks though and will make another press release then (and post the pressing info and photos of the vinyl then as well).

DIECAST Debut New Video On YouTube

The clip can be viewed now exclusively through Century Media's YouTube site, which can be accessed by clicking the link below.

NAPALM DEATH Headline The ‘Death By Decibels' Tour; Shoot New Video

This fall seminal grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH will annihilate the masses on the ‘Death By Decibels' Tour, their first U.S. headlining tour in more than five years.

The Decibel magazine sponsored trek kicks off on November 15th and also features A Life Once Lost, Dead To Fall and Animosity in the support slots with Arsis and Impaled joining on select dates. See below for the tour's complete itinerary.

NAPALM DEATH just completed an extremely successful run on the Monsters of Mayhem U.S. tour with Hatebreed, Black Dahlia Murder, Exodus, First Blood and Despised Icon in support of Smear Campaign, their highly acclaimed new album.

The disc, produced once again with Russ Russel, is an uncompromising, ferocious assault that continues to address serious social issues that plague today's society. The group recently shot a video for the track, “When All Is Said and Done,” with up-and-coming director Kevin Wildt (Set Your Goals, The Warriors); look for it early next month. Click below to check it out.

Barney Greenway (vocals) checks in with the following post tour report: “The Monsters tour seems like something of a whirlwind. It wasn't always pretty in the RV, but we came, played as fast as possible and then left with positive words in our wake pretty much everywhere.

I must admit that I expected some opposition beforehand over the things that the band projects lyrically, but there really was none to speak of. People that usually wouldn't go along to a Napalm Death show (mainly through not really knowing about us) were pretty wide-eyed over the intensity of the band, and have said they will come and see us in December, which is nice.

“I'd like to throw out a wide thanks also to all the bands and crew for making us feel so welcome. There was a genuine air of friendliness there, which is always encouraging. A special mention goes out to First Blood for sniffing out vegetarian restaurants in the unlikeliest of towns. Cheers all!”

After celebrating its 25-year anniversary, the band's goals still remain the same: to outlast every trend; to never compromise; to provide a political voice for the voiceless; and to create the most brutal, challenging music on earth.

Relapse Records is proud to announce the signing of Long Island, NY's CAR BOMB.

CAR BOMB (Michael Dafferner - vocals, Greg Kubacki - guitar, Jon Modell - bass and Elliot Hoffman - drums) was formed out of the dissolution of Dafferner and Kubacki's previous band NECK and have spent the past few years fine-tuning their brand of wildly progressive, technical style of heavy music.

CAR BOMB will also pair up with BURNT BY THE SUN for a split 7" release. The split 7" features the CAR BOMB tracks "M^6" and "Pieces of You", the first new material from the band since the release of their self-titled demo, as well as the first new material from BURNT BY THE SUN in over three years.

The 7" will surface in the fall via Relapse. "M^6" can be heard via any of CAR BOMB's web (,, and pages.

Additionally, CAR BOMB have recently completed work on their first ever music video for the track “M^6”. The video was shot by Jeremy Jackson and the Filmcore crew (UNEARTH, CANNIBAL CORPSE, AS I LAY DYING, BRIAN POSEHN) in New York. A preview of the video can be viewed at

WITCHCRAFT forced to return to Sweden

Sweden's Witchcraft who were to start their first US tour in Seattle on October 23 have been forced to return to Sweden for additional processing at the US Embassy in Stockholm. The tour, also featuring Portland-based Danava who have been performing all venues as scheduled, is now being reworked for a later start date with West Coast performances planned to be rescheduled at the end of the planned dates.

The band have their flights booked to return to the tour in Austin, Texas on Tuesday 31st October, Halloween.

Venues and dates for rescheduled dates will be noted shortly.

Rise Above Records, via Candlelight will reissue the band's self-titled debut in the US on November 14. The band's latest album, Firewood, is available in stores now.

And this from Ola:


As you may have noticed we did not show up at the start of the US tour because we were forced back to Sweden by the customs in Seattle.

The reason is that we did not have our temporary work visas because the approvals from the US were delayed. We gave it a try anyway without the visas and got caught.
We have done everything in our power to get to the US in time for the tour and those who think otherwise are wrong!

However, now we have our visas and flights booked for the Austin show on the 31:st of October!

We will try to reschedule the west coast gigs to the end of the tour (18th - 26th Nov).
Venues and dates for rescheduled dates will be noted shortly.

Danava will be playing the gigs as planned.

We are really sorry for the trouble this may have caused you and hope to see you all on the tour.

It will still be a killer you know!


Ola Henriksson, bassplayer in Witchcraft.

VITAL REMAINS Tour Report; Erik Rutan To Produce New Album

Extreme metal titans VITAL REMAINS recently wrapped up their touring campaign for Dechristianize with a successful run alongside Dismember, labelmates Grave, Demiricous and Withered. This trek also capped off an extremely busy year which saw them tour the U.S. four times, further solidifying their status as one of the genre's hardest-working acts.

The group will now focus on completing their much-anticipated new album before heading into the studio with the renowned Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore) early next year. This effort marks the group's second recording with Glen Benton (Deicide) on vocals, and promises to be their most blasphemous and devastating offering yet.

Tony Lazaro (guitars) checks in with the following report: "So our tour with the Swedes Dismember and Grave has come to an end. We had a killer time out there and want to thank all the bands we shared the stage with.

Thanks to all the metal fans that came out in support! It was great to go out on one more tour before we lock ourselves up in the practice space and finish witting the album. St. Pete, FL was a great stop as we got to hang out with Trey from Morbid Angel. A big thanks to him for coming out to the show and hanging out all night at the Hard Rock Cafe drinking until the sun came up.

"The mighty Erik Rutan took Dave Suzuki (guitars) and I up to visit his studio, Mana Recording. The place is so nice, and the gear they have is awesome! We can't wait to record our new album down there; it's going to be sick! With Rutan, Benton, Suzuki and me locked in a studio for a month, there's not enough holy water to wash away the mess we are going to make."
