AUTUMN - Update from Nienke

Dear all,

A little personal update. The past few weeks I've been working on my recovery, trying to get back on my feet. I am happy to say that the effort is starting to pay off, I'm gradually feeling better and better. The show at the Goudvishal next weekend (4th of November) is yet still a bit too early at this stage, so unfortunately I won't be able to make it, for which I'm very sorry.... to say the least.

But on a more positive note: if things keep progressing like this, I hope to make it to the next show on the 17th (Lelystad). So, I will keep you guys posted and see you real soon!

Last but not least: thank you for all your kind messages! It's comforting to
know that so many people care!!!

Hug, Ninx

HATCHET sign with Metal Blade Records

Metal Blade Records has just inked a deal with Bay Area thrashers HATCHET! HATCHET is an onslaught of 5 thrash metal fanatics from the San Francisco Bay Area; a starting point for infamous thrash bands like METALLICA, EXODUS, TESTAMENT, and VIO-LENCE just to name a few. Formed by Julz on guitar and Slave behind the drum kit in January 2005, HATCHET was started as the two were fed up with the stale metal scene in their hometown. Their desire to create music filled with substance and driving aggression would be enough to help revive a genre that had slowly began to fade away over the years in their hometown.

HATCHET will be playing various one off dates until they release their new album in spring/summer 2008 and will then be on a heavy touring schedule. Head over to the band's MySpace page to check out some tracks to get a taste of what's to come!

"It is an honour to be working with Metal Blade, and to be a part of the legacy of amazing artists they have worked with over the years! Together we will help bring Thrash Metal back to the top where it belongs!" - Hatchet

"In a time where thrash is making an awesome comeback, we are stoked to be working with bands that are a part of the rebirth. These guys are young, ruthless and talented and we can't wait till they rock you like its 1984!" Metal Blade

Marcus (Tormentor) - Vocal Assault
Julz - Lead Guitars
Sterling (McFly) - Guitars
Slave - Drums
Dan (Destroyer) - Bass

WOE OF TYRANTS sign with Metal Blade Records

Metal Blade Records is very pleased to announce the latest addition to its illustrious roster, WOE OF TYRANTS. From Chillicothe, Ohio comes the next heavy metal Goliath. WOE OF TYRANTS is comprised of five guys dead-set on playing metal the way they want to, never listening or caring what scene they belong to or what sells the most records; who mix the best of death, thrash, and power metal in a concoction that defies pigeon-holing. Mix the vintage sounds of TESTAMENT and METALLICA, brutal death metal, epic power metal, and even some southern fried flair thrown on top, and you have what has become known as WOE OF TYRANTS.

"We are extremely excited about working with Metal Blade and feel that we have a lot to offer the label and more importantly the heavy metal community all together. We feel Metal Blade has our best interests at heart as they've shown their dedication to their artists and fans by releasing some of the best metal in the world for decades.

We have always stuck with our guns when writing and performing our music, refusing to give into any of the trends or clichés that pop-up in the heavy music genre and are very thankful that Metal Blade has not let this go unnoticed. We are prepared to unleash the best and most crushing material we've written thus far and hope to reach as many people possible with our music. We are blessed to have such an opportunity. Keep a lookout for our debut, and lots of touring, this is only the beginning!" WOE OF TYRANTS

"WOE OF TYRANTS plays a unique blend of death, thrash, melody, exceptional guitar riffs and even a little bit of Southern rock. They have a great work ethic and we can't wait to work along side them to take them to the next level. W.O.T. will definitely be a band to keep all eyes and ears on. Welcome to the Metal Blade family, guys!" Metal Blade Records - Jen Graham

WOE OF TYRANTS will be touring through the winter and will be finishing up the writing of their Metal Blade debut in the spring with plans to enter the studio in early summer 2008. More details on tour dates and the album will be made over the coming weeks and months so be sure to keep an eye on the band's website.

The following is a statement from a member of Covan's family, via Martin, former bass player of Decapitated, with regards to the band members situation following the bus crash in Russia earlier this week:

"Covan and Vitek are still at the hospital in Novozybkov, Russia, where they were taken to following the accident. Despite the rumors, they are not in Moscow.

Their families are currently trying to decide the best possible city and hospital to take them to next for additional medical attention.

Covan is showing some progress, but unfortunately, there has been no signs of improvement in Vitek's condition. The families of Covan and Vitek appreciate everyone's concern on the matter, but please do not spread any more unconfirmed rumours or information on the Internet. More details will soon be released."


After recently delivering their brutal Death Metal sound to Mexico, Severe Torture have given an exclusive insight into the life of a band on tour. Aptly describing the visit as 'Vengeance Over Mexico', with their latest album Sworn Vengeance due for release this month, Seth reveals all about Mexico, Maffia and bootleg Merch. Read what he has to say here:

"On October 1st we arrived in Mexico City, where we met with our Mexican friends: Dave, Javier, Micky and Carlos. Of course the first night we went for some beers and tacos to relax after a long flight.

The next day, travelling to Monterrey, just to sleep and on Wednesday we had our first gig in Laredo. Many fanatic maniacs showed up and the show was a blast. Before and after the show we had to drink many beers with our fans and that gave us a warm welcome.

Next day, October 4th, we went to Tampico to play at the Club Golden Billar. It was a hot, but brutal show!!! After the show we wanted to drive to our Hotel, but there was a Mercedes with black windows blocking the street. It didn't look ok so we turned around and took another street. Another car with black windows pulled up in front of us and blocked the street again. We were now sure this was not good, especially when we saw guys coming out, holding guns...

We got the hell out of there, went the opposite direction, drove around the city and got to our hotel safe. Next day we saw a newspaper, it said that later that night, the army went there and arrested 18 drug maffia-related members, who were loading up a truck of cocaine in the street they were blocking. We were glad we weren't there, that's for sure! We played in Monterrey and the day after we did an open air show in San Luis Potosi. The crowd was for sure one of the most brutal ones we ever played for!!! We spent a lot of time hanging out with them and had a great time.

After another great gig in Queretaro we had 3 days off, so we went to Teotihuacan to climb the Pyramid of the Sun and the Moon. It was something no one of us ever saw. Thanx to Dave and his friend Gabriella for taking us there.

Our hotel was in Mexico City so we spent our remaining two days there.
On Oct. 11th we played in the Area Chica in Toluca. And again the people showed that they have a great passion for metal. The two last shows were Guadalajara and last but not least Mexico City in the Infernal Bar. Guadalajara was hot. We went to a market first with just CD's, t-shirts, bags etc. All of a sudden we hear a track of our new album coming from somewhere. We checked it out and that's when we saw the first bootleg version of "Sworn Vengeance". Guadalajara was so hot that my whopper came out again. Lucky that was after the show, sorry to the club by the way...

Finally, Mexico City. Probably the best show of the tour. When we arrived at the club we saw a big merchandise booth, with lots of different bootleg Severe Torture shirts! Awesome to see such support! We even got a Sworn Vengeance longsleeve now, before the album's out! But who cares, these people are 100% metal!!! Thanx for the support! There were a lot of people we met in the days before that show, so a lot of partying! We picked some good tracks out of the death metal jukebox and had our last Mexican beers with our friends.

We like to thank Dave, Javier, Micky and Carlos for taking good care of us! We had a blast!!! And also many thanx to our Mexican fans, you were great!!! Hopefully we will be back soon with more Severe Torture!
Salud cabrones!
Seth, Severe Torture"

Severe Torture's latest release 'Sworn Vengeance' is out on November 12th. For more information about the album and where to order it online head over to

Fresh from taking the UK by storm on a recent rip-roaring tour with US metallers Sanctity and Romeo Must Die, Evile guitarist Ol Drake has spoken out about how the fast-rising Huddersfield thrashers found the tour:

"It's been awesome touring with two great bands who just happened to be awesome people too. In Sanctity's case we were un-sure what to expect, as our past experiences with American bands hasn't been too good, but they're such awesome guys. This tour's just been 100% fun and pleasure."

The brutality of the thrashers coming out to see them was definitely in full force, as Ol recounts an instance at a show in Scotland. He explains:

"Some guy got knocked out and taken to Hospital in Glasgow. He's ok now though. BRUTAL. you can't keep a Thrasher down.

It's just been an all around blast. Cheers to all who came out and took the time to watch Evile, and Cheers to our new mates Sanctity and RMD. Thrash you all again soon."

Ol had the following to say about the partnership with Randall:

"The second I plugged into the Randall V2 and tweaked the settings a bit, I was in love. You can literally get any sound you want out of it. Crunchy low ends to screaming high ends to....anything! The built-in graphic EQ is a god send too. I stress that every metal guitarist try out some Randall gear. They'll kick your fu*king ar*e!"

BRAINSTORM to re-schedule tour

Dear friends and fans,
As EVERGREY will not have their new album released in time, they can not take part in the planned tour. Due to this fact, we need to re-schedule the dates for the tour that will now happen without EVERGREY. We are already discussing some very interesting special guests but as we are sure you understand, we need some days to come up with new dates and details.

Todde, Andy, Mille and Dieter

Here's what EVERGREY have to state about the cancellation:

Unfortunately we must infom you that EVERGREY not is able to do the planned tour with BRAINSTORM in March 2008. This is due to the fact that our next album not will be ready in time to be released before the tour. We feel it's not fair to the fans or to the promoters or to BRAINSTORM to do a tour without the new album out. If the circumstances aren't the best we shouldn't do a major tour like this. We are sorry for any problems this may cause but we will be back soon.

Tom, Henrik, Rikard, Jonas and Jari

BOLT THROWER to play Wacken?

As most of you probably know, BOLT THROWER don't like to play festivals, but as a lot of you want to see us playing festivals, we try and play at least one festival a year. After receiving numerous offers, we now have to choose which festival to play next Summer, and would like you to help us decide. As BT are not financially driven, the fee is pretty irrelevant,
as is whether we play to 1000 people or 100,000. Our main requirement would be to have our usual merchandise / meet and greet booth, with no price restrictions.

Wacken Open Air festival have asked us again to play next Summer, and the date would fit in with the gap in our planned recording and mixing schedule for next year. A lot of you have asked us to play Wacken over the years, and a lot of you have advised us not to play it, for various reasons.

So now, we would like you to help us decide by taking part in the following

The latest release from Dutch Death Metal destroyers Severe Torture is out now in UK/Europe. 'Sworn Vengeance', which hits the shelves today has already been met with blistering reviews and UK's Metal Hammer magazine writes:

"All the trademarks of the new wave of brutal death metal are in place - Dennis Schreurs' fearsome, slightly more refined vocals, the ice-cold precision from the drums and guitars and an overall air of menace all make most recent extreme metal seem slightly tepid in comparison".

The album, which has been hailed by Terrorizer as "a superlative slice of unfussy death metal" is also available in a Limited Edition format, which contains cover versions of the Cro-Mags track 'It's The Limit' and Entombed's 'Eyemaster'.

This album is a must-have for all fans of urgent and direct pure death metal without any frills. To hear the track 'Dismal Perception' taken from 'Sworn Vengeance' and to find out more about the release head over to

Thrash dynamos, BONDED BY BLOOD spent last weekend playing several shows in Arizona, including a headlining spot at the Metalstock Festival. It was an all-day affair featuring over 30 of finest metal bands that Arizona has to offer. BONDED BY BLOOD vocalist, Aladdin felt the love from the crowd at Metalstock and now dishes some love back at them and the crowd they played for, the previous evening in Prescott:

"Arizona was amazing. Prescott was fun...a bunch of old school thrash fans made
it fun. Phoenix's Metalstock was pure insanity! An all day festival of 30 bands...All of what Arizona has to offer plus BONDED BY BLOOD. People were astonished
after hearing the old school vibes that we provided. All in all, Arizona was
one of the most kick ass states we have played!"

Metal Mayhem UK recently spoke to BLOOD RED THRONE guitarist, Dod about the band's new album, COME DEATH. Over the course of the interview, Dod reveals much about their writing and recording process, talks about the intense musicianship that each band member brings and gives a rundown of BLOOD RED THRONE's plans for the end of 2007 with a taste of what's in store for 2008.

Read what BLOOD RED THRONE guitarist, Dod has to say regarding all those topics and more at

Metal Mayhem UK uses some strong words to describe the sheer terror that BLOOD RED THRONE's new album, COME DEATH will leave in the wake of every listener:

"COME DEATH has an old school death metal feel: pummeling bass and ripping guitars will leave listeners feeling like a corpse in Ed Gein's wed shed: gutted, decapitated and hung out to dry."

ELUVEITIE - Inks deal with Nuclear Blast

NUCLEAR BLAST is very happy and proud to announce the signing of the Swiss band ELUVEITIE!
We are really looking forward to a very successful future with the band!

Check out the following statement from the band:
"Great news we have for you these days! While being busy finishing up the production of Slania and working on our Evocation-concept we still found the time to travel to Donzdorf in Germany for a few beers & a talk with the people of Nuclear Blast Records...

Not only did they make us drunk as hell, but they also impressed us with a great artist roster, 20 Years of incredible work (happy birthday Nuclear Blast!) and their professional but still very "metal" staff. So we did what had to be done - we came, we saw and we signed. We are looking forward to many years of great work together with one of the world's biggest record companies in metal and are glad to announce that our new full-length record "Slania" will join the legions of legendary albums released by Nuclear Blast at FEBRUARY 15th, 2008!

Now you'll probably remember a news-entry of some weeks ago, telling you about Evocation I & II on Twilight Records... You remember right, and no: We weren't drunk. ;) But we are very happy that Twilight and Nuclear Blast decided to join forces, so Twilight will take care of our back-catalogue (Spirit is bein re-released by Twilight these days & our first EP Ven will follow in Spring 2008 - check!) while Evocation I (that's right: it's gonna be two full albums) will be released through NB in Winter 2008.

We are very happy with where things are going right now, and you can expect to hear a lot from us & about our new album within the next few weeks... Stay tuned!"
Horns up & slaínte!

ABORTED - post "Slaughter & Apparatus TV - Episode 2" @ YouTube

After slaughtering European audiences on their highly successful tour with Behemoth and Kataklysm, Belgian Death/Grind outfit ABORTED now presents you the second episode of "Slaughter & Apparatus TV" offering impressions from this particular tour and revealing more about the sick quintet's offstage antics than you ever wanted to know!

Watch "Slaughter & Apparatus TV - Episode 2" now at the following link:

ABORTED's first album on Century Media Records "Slaughter & Apparatus: A Methodical Overture" was released earlier this year and has received massive acclaim from fans and media alike, read what press says about this brutal masterpiece:

"With its fifth full-length the Belgian high tech death metal squad has finally reached the top of the genre. High class death metal brutality garnered with refined musicianship. Cannibal Corpse and Death meets Strapping Young Lad and Darkane. Killer!"


"Massive riffs, brutal blasts, heavy grooves and gore galore. Tension, performance and sawn off legs on the highest level!"


"ABORTED delivers highly proficient slabs of ultra violence complete with crushing breakdowns, stupefying stickwork and bruised rib riffing."


"ABORTED lay waste to all of the cheap Carcass imitators of the past."


ARCH ENEMY - Post "Revolution Begins" video

While ARCH ENEMY's new album "Rise Of The Tyrant" is being praised by media and fans alike, the band now presents you the impressive brand-new video clip for "Revolution Begins"!

Directed by Patric Ullaeus (Dimmu Borgir, In Flames, etc.) from the video approaches the song's title & lyrics quite literally showing ARCH ENEMY and their guerrilla forces preparing a massive world-wide uproar driven by unrivalled metallic fury! Michael Amott comments:

"Check out our video for 'Revolution Begins', it was a very enjoyable shoot and the visuals work great with the music - Patric Ullaeus is the man!"

The clip is now available at:

Furthermore the band has just finished the Australian part of The Black Crusade Tour with Machine Head & Trivium and Michael Amott sends the following re-cap:

"Our third visit to Australia was killer! We had a good time as usual here and I enjoyed the shows, which were all pretty huge and fun to play. Machine Head, Trivium and Arch Enemy proved to be a great package. Great shows, great weather and great people! I'd also like to thank all the good people at CMI who supplied the Randall amps and hooked up the in-stores I did, always fun to talk string gauges and tubes with guitar kids - and I'm not being ironic here!"

ARCH ENEMY will next be playing two headlining shows in Greece & Spain, followed by the frenetically awaited European leg of The Black Crusade Tour (w/ Machine Head, Dragonforce, Trivium, Shadows Fall). So, have a look at the dates below and prepare your neck for THE metal live package of 2007!

2007 has been an amazing year for Turisas with the release of their epic new album 'The Varangian Way', playing the main stage at the Download Festival, Metal Hammer's 'Get In The Ring' & Kerrang Magazine's 'Day Of Rock' shows in London, a sold out UK tour, Wacken, Tuska & Graspop Festivals and touring Europe with Iced Earth & Annihilator .. and finishing off with the year in style with a show stealing performance at last weekend's inaugural Hard Rock Hell Festival in Minehead ….. so what better way to start 2008 than bringing everyone's favourite Viking warriors back to the UK to play some more shows

Warlord Nygard comments on the forthcoming tour: "We just got back home from Hard Rock Hell festival in Minehead, which surely was a great and rather interesting experience … we are still trying to cure our hangovers! We did our first UK tour this October, and the response was overwhelming - with sold out dates and crazy crowds everywhere! In March we will return to tour cities and towns we didn't play in October and we're expecting you guys to prove us right in not only touring the main 4-5 cities, but trying to play as much of the country as we can and meet as many of you battle metallers as possible!"

Turisas will play the following venues with the support act to be announced shortly

MARCH 2008
