Watain on European Crusade (Season of Mist August News)

Aug 21th, 2007


Current release: "Sworn to the Dark" (3 panel digipak + 16 page booklet)
MP3 - Sworn to the Dark - Sworn To The Dark

It is now official, WATAIN will head out on a full-scale European crusade in October - the Storm of the Antichrist tour - alongside the ancient Asian warbeast IMPIETY. This will be WATAIN's first headliner tour in Europe, following the April release of the highly acclaimed "Sworn to the Dark". Tourdates hereunder.

"From the vaults below the desert-temple, to the throne among the stars... Sweden's Black Metal Magicians have been burning and pillaging their way through the Black Metal scene ever since their cursed birth. Notoriously infamous for their blood-soaked, fiery live-perfomances and morbid ways, WATAIN have many times been refered to as "the new usurpers of the Black Metal throne". Their third album "Sworn to the Dark" was released in early 2007 and was welcomed worldwide as one of the most important releases of the genre in years. After having toured the world with bands like DISSECTION, CELTIC FROST and ANGELCORPSE, it is now time for WATAIN's first headliner tour in Europe. Beware... The werewolves of Satan have been unleashed!"

Ava Inferi Reveals (Season of Mist August)

Aug 21th, 2007


Upcoming release: "The Silhouette" (digipak + 16 page booklet)
Release date: Oct. 15th, US Oct. 23rd
MP3 - The Silouhette - Pulse of the Earth

Season of Mist release the upcoming track AVA INFERI "Pulse of the Earth" on the internet (taken from upcoming album "The Silhouette").

AVA INFERI reveals "The first version of this song had a totally different character. The overall feeling is probably the same but the rhythmic structure was completely different. It had an almost floating, ambient kind of vibe to it and was generally more avant-garde than what it turned out to be. We feel that the new version has all the elements that makes AVA INFERI something different, and it's also one of the most powerful songs we have composed up to this point in our career. A true and powerful declaration.

The lyrics on "Pulse of the Earth" are strongly influenced by nature and the forces therein, and furthermore, they paint a vision of the interactions between man and nature. Note that "The Silhouette" in itself is partly devoted to the elemental aspects of our world and that this song represents the earth element, if any doubt...

On this particular song we also use different types of rhythmic or native (diverse) instruments to recreate and achieve a kind of ritualistic feeling. To bring out the message and its essence to the fullest. We also believe that every song presented on "The Silhouette" has its own strength and mission. That each song has its own peculiar twist. An album full of surprises!"

"The Silhouette" will be in stores on Oct 15th and Oct 23rd for the US.

Darkane - Singer Quits (Nuclear Blast August)

Darkane have posted the following statements on their homepage: "The time has come, my friends for me to step down from my position as vocalist of the greatest band in the world! I feel I’ve reached a stand still in the creative process with Darkane and together we came to the decision to let fresh blood into the band for the upcoming fifth album. Darkane is constantly evolving and I’m sure that this ignition will be great for the band. We certainly part ways as very good friends and we’re in fact still working together on finishing the long awaited DVD. Hopefully the Darkane "Layers of Live" DVD will be released this autumn and, in a way, sum up my 7 years with Darkane and be the perfect closure. I feel very honoured and privileged to have been a part of such a great musicianship as Darkane and I have tons of great memories from all we’ve experienced together. I’m really gonna miss it! I want to send out a great big thanks to all the people I’ve met and gotten to know over these 7 years! To all family and friends for supporting me and the band. To all the great bands we’ve met, played and toured with, especially to Devin Townsend (I wouldn’t have made it through the U.S. without you!). To all the crew that has helped us out over the years. To Erin Lynch for believing in us and coping with all our bad habits, misshapes, accidents and illnesses (You sure are the Darkane tour mama!). To the Nuclear Blast crew, in Europe as well as in the USA (Thanks for helping me fulfil one of my biggest dreams, Gerardo! Keep working those vocals, Loana, and keep your enthusiasm flowing!). To all the fanzine’s that spread the word about Metal all over the world. Your work is extremely important and appreciated! And finally a HUGE thanks to all the fans all over the world for coming to the shows and supporting Darkane! You are my, and Darkane's, true inspiration! See ya! /Andreas. Thank you!"
We can look back at seven great years together with Andreas. He joined us as a stand in for Lawrence on a small tour with SOILWORK and NAGLFAR in March 1999. After the first show of the tour it was clear that he was the guy we were looking for! Since then Andreas has sung on three albums and participated on tours with Darkane in Europe, US, Japan and Israel. We have had a lot of fun together and Andreas has always been the helpful, happy and friendly guy in the band. We sure are gonna miss you, and we know that you´ll reach a lot of success with whatever you do in the future! We would like to wish you all the happiness and success and thanks a lot for being a part of Darkane! With love! (not in that way =)…) Christofer, Peter, Klas and Jörgen! News about an upcoming vocalist will come soon…"

Chimaira - European tour cancelled! (Nuclear Blast August)

Cleveland's CHIMAIRA have issued the following official statement: "As you may or may not know, we have decided to cancel our upcoming U.K./European run. There's really no way for us to describe our sorrow after having decided to pull out of the Eastpak Antidote tour. It was an extremely difficult decision for us to make, and one that we have been painfully mulling over for weeks now. We'd first like to apologize to all of our die-hard fans, and then to all the great guys (and girl) in SOILWORK, CALIBAN and SONIC SYNDICATE. After nine years and more than 700 shows, we can proudly say that we've cancelled a little more than a handful. Our motto has always been that somebody's got to be either sick or dead before we pull the plug. However, this time that is not the case. No one is sick, no one is dead, and not one of us is even tired. In fact, it's the exact opposite... All six of us are on fire with creativity. And if we don't take some time to let it flow, it could possibly go away. As a lot of you know, the last record brought a lot of unity and excitement back to our band. Our brotherhood is stronger than ever, and we've finally 're-focused.' We need to get back into the rehearsal space and explore some of the song ideas we've got going on right now. This record cycle is certainly not over for us, and we still plan on touring heavily in support of 'Resurrection' throughout the winter, and throughout 2008. We're also not 'writing and recording' a new record right now, so don't get that idea... (maybe an EP??). We've just decided that we need to spend the next three months laying down some material that is flowing through us uncontrollably. We've looked at this decision from every angle, and the last thing we'd ever want to do is disappoint our loyal fans. But as painful as it was, we all agreed that this decision was best for CHIMAIRA's 'Big Picture.' So please be hopeful, like we are, that this decision will benefit us all in so many ways. After all, you've got to strike while the iron's hot. So fear not Chimairians..... we've got a ton of great ideas in mind for the future. Our winter U.S. headlining tour will be some of our best shows to date and you'll see a fire in us like you've never seen before. Plus everyone is going to start hearing a lot of the songs that you've been asking for. And we definitely plan on bringing the same passion overseas sometime in early 2008. We've got some killer ideas on the table, we're shooting a new video, and frickin' Andols is back! Finally, our sincerest hopes that you will all understand and forgive. And we promise to make it up to you all in one way or the other." Swedish melodic death metallers DARK TRANQUILLITY have now officially confirmed their participation in the Eastpak Antidote tour to replace CHIMAIRA.

Exodus - Promise a genre-defining new album (Nuclear Blast August)

Gary Singh of recently conducted an interview with EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt. A few excerpts from the chat follow: On whether EXODUS' first album, "Bonded by Blood", will be in a car commercial someday: "Hell, 'Deathamphetamine' from our last album was used in a K&N air filters commercial, so we're halfway there. But the next [album] is as sick and dark as anything done before, and we'll continue doing just that as long as I'm enjoying myself." On EXODUS going through a new rebirth: "Look at our last two records. They are amazing slabs of metal, and when you hear the new one, you'll realize that very few bands are able to put out back-to-back to back releases with the fire and intensity of ours. The new album is a genre-defining moment for us and thrash in general, and we as a band feel more inspired and motivated than any time before." On EXODUS' early live shows: "Everyone had a good time, even if they were bleeding. "It's really hard to explain what it was like to people who weren't there. There was a sense of community going on, everybody supported each other and went to each other's shows, when we weren't playing together, that is. It was pretty nuts though. You had [Paul] Baloff and myself tormenting the poseurs [glam metal bands]; general mayhem was the norm, especially at EXODUS shows. It was pretty much a well-known fact that our shows were the most violent you could find anywhere." "ANTHRAX played after us at the Kabuki theatre and they were heckled — something awful. And this is ANTHRAX, not some glam band. But it felt pretty damn great to know you were creating something new."On touring Europe and playing small clubs in the U.S.: " Let's be real. In the States we have to play smaller clubs out of necessity. Bigger markets mean bigger venues, but as long as we have a sweaty packed house, all's well in the world. Turkey was insane, and we've been to a lot of places over the last year or so that we've never been to, like Bangkok, and those shows were amazing. But we haven't played San Jose in a long time, since the old Cactus Club, I think, so this [upcoming show on August 10] should be nuts.
