    Commented the organizers in a statement: "We think it is really nice to see the ProgPower concept is growing. Since we started the festival in Europe back in 1999, there are now editions in the USA, U.K. and Scandinavia. And who knows what's next!"
  • PROGPOWER USA Sold Out; Surprise Headline Set Announced

    The organizers of the ProgPower USA festival have announced a surprise headline set for this year's sold-out edition of the internationally renowned festival. Saturday night (October 6) will now finish with an all-star cover set featuring vocalists from both the showcase and the festival. Each vocalist will be given the opportunity to perform 1-2 cover songs of their choice with the music being provided by the members of PAGAN'S MIND. Additional guests will join them throughout the set.

    "The fans have made this festival a success and it's time to give something back to them," said ProgPower USA promoter Glenn Harveston. "I wanted to announce this after the sell-out as a reward instead of in advance as an incentive. It's going to be one hell of a party on stage."

    As a result of the additional performance, there has been a major change in the schedule and door times. "I had to shake things up quite a bit to make this work," Harveston explained. "However, the fans can relax knowing that not one band will have a single minute cut from their previously announced set lengths."

    The new schedule and door times can be found at the festival web site.

    ProgPower USA VIII will once again return to Atlanta's Center Stage Oct. 5-6, 2007. The final billing is as follows (in alphabetical order):

    AFTER FOREVER
    COMMUNIC
    FIREWIND
    PAGAN'S MIND
    PRIMAL FEAR
    RAINTIME

    ** exclusive bonus mixes
    * exclusive vinyl only bonus tracks

    Says Mortiis about the exclusive material:

    “I grew up on vinyl records, when CD came along and vinyl was dying away I was gutted. CD still can’t stand up to the pure artistic space that is open to you on an LP.

    “The creativity that was explored with the vinyl format (especially in the ‘70s) was pure magic and that died when CD came along. I think to some extent you can be creative with a CD too but it’s nowhere close. I try to get vinyl versions of everything we do, although sometimes that just doesn’t happen. We’re doing it now, and it is something I will be fighting for with every release we do in the future.

    “As well, to be as creative as possible in an environment that reflects that, vinyl records are a great medium to showcase cool ideas.”

    “Some Kind of Heroin” is released on April 16 in Europe.

  • HAMMERFALL's new bass player announced!

    HAMMERFALL have announced a new bass player: Fredrik Larsson, original member of the band, has re-entered the realms of the Swedish steel gods and will replace Magnus Rosen from now on!

    "I am very happy and excited to be back! I have known the guys for more than ten years and we have kept in touch all the time, so it is not as if I come in a complete stranger. We played a few songs together last weekend, and it felt like 1997 was just a couple of weeks ago", says Fredrik about coming back into the fold. Oscar comments: "Fredrik brings structure to the rhythm section and I think you will definitely hear and feel the difference when we play live". "He plays with a pick, for one, and has a great groove and timing, all of which will make HAMMERFALL sound better than we ever have before", Anders remarks, and Stefan chimes in: "We are all very psyched about this and can't wait to get on the road again." "Fredrik recorded 'Glory To The Brave' with us, so he's definitely a part of the family. It's great to have him back!" adds Joacim.

    Check out the revitalized HAMMERFALL at their gigs at Rock Hard festival, Bang Your Head festival, Masters Of Rock and more open air shows during this summer! More dates to be announced very soon.
  • GOTTHARD video shoot for "the call" finished!

    Last week the video for GOTTHARD´s first online single "The Call" – taken from the new album "Domino Effect" (release on April 27th) – has been shot in Nuernberg/Germany. Directed by Martin Mueller from RCN-TV the clip has been shot in the famous Grand Hotel. There, the beautiful Richard-Wagner-Saloon as well as the Honeymoon Suite have been the locations for the shooting of the extraordinary clip. "As the song itself is a very traditional ballad we wanted the clip to be everything else than traditional", bass player Marc Lynn explained to the newspaper “Nuernberger Zeitung”, which reported about the video shoot. "For example, we will have one scene, in which Steve Lee, our singer, sits in a restaurant with a girl and the waitress serves him a cut out heart." So we can look forward...

  • ONCE DEAD SIGNS WITH OPEN GRAVE RECORDS

    Formed as a re-incarnation of the notorious thrash metal outfit “Vengeance Rising”, L.A.’s Once Dead boasts a refreshing dose of old school thrash metal, combined with a triple guitar assault and a lineup of seasoned musical veterans. All of the members have impressive musical resumes, with high profile acts under their belts such as Deliverance, Fasedown, Hirax, Sircle of Silence, The Blamed and The Crucified. The band was formed when Vengeance Rising members Larry Farkas and Doug Thieme along with bass player Roger Dale and drummer Glen Mancaruso did a gig at the “Summer Madness” event in August of 2004 at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, California . Appearing as guest vocalist would be none other than Scott Waters of Ultimatum. Under the threat of legal action from the absent Roger Martinez, the band quickly changed their name to “Once Dead”. A DVD of this show would be recorded, and would have sustained interest, which would lead the band to a spot on the Cornerstone festival in 2005. During this time, various personnel changes were to occur, with ex-Vengeance Rising and Hirax member Glenn Rogers joining the group in January 2006, and Scott Waters leaving the front man position, to be replaced by Devin Shaeffer of Fasedown. The lineup was to be completed by ex Hirax member Angelo Espino, and Jim Chaffin on drums.

    Once Dead is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on their debut album, “Visions of Hell” which is due out the summer of 2007 on Open Grave Records.

    In other Once Dead news: Glenn Rogers leaves Hirax to act as full time Once Dead member

    Statement from Glenn Rogers:

    Today I have to announce that I'm no longer with the band Hirax.

    I loved my time in the band, and I'm sorry it came to an end.

    Due to some personal reasons it is no longer possible for the band, and my self to work together. I do wish them luck, and I'll leave it at that.

    As of now I have committed my time, and energy to the band Once Dead. I have been personal friends with them for many years, and I'm looking forward to finishing the new cd with them.

    For the fans, and friends of Hirax I want to thank you for all the support over the years. I hope that you will carry that support over to my new band Once Dead, and give us a chance.

    I look forward to seeing you on the road... Thanks Glenn Rogers

  • EAST MEETS WEST ON OZZFEST AS TAIWANESE BAND CHTHONIC JOINS THE TOUR’S LINEUP

    TRENTON, N.J. – Ozzfest will get a taste of the Far East as the Taiwanese black metal band Chthonic joins the traveling heavy metal festival’s lineup this summer.

    “It’s our pleasure to play Ozzfest as the first Asian extreme metal band,” said Chthonic frontman Freddy. “We believe that we are going to lead a wave of Asian extreme metal to the world!”

    Added guitarist Jesse: “I have dreamt of standing on this stage!”

    Chthonic’s presence on the tour is significant also because Ozzfest marks Chthonic’s first full US tour. Chthonic’s past American performances have been limited to special appearances at metal festivals, where the group first began making a name for themselves stateside a few years back.

    “It took us 10 years to be on the stage of Ozzfest and it’s one of the biggest opportunities of our career,” said bassist Doris. “Based on the experience of our numerous tours in Asia, we have faith that metalheads in the U.S. are going to be blown away by this Typhoon of Oriental Extreme Metal.”

    In its 12th year, Ozzfest has made the bold move to become “FreeFest,” an event entirely free for fans. Tens of thousands of fans are expected to attend.

    Called “the Black Sabbath of Asia” by the Taipei Times for its impact on heavy music, Chthonic has furthered its Western reputation with the release of its latest – and fourth in all – release, “Seediq Bale.” Using the weepy sounds of the “er-hu,” a traditional Eastern two-string violin that dates back to the Tang Dynasty of the 618-907, Chthonic adds a unique element to its symphonic style of black metal.

    Chthonic has stirred up controversy in the past with its strong Taiwanese pro-independence stance, which has been the focus of much of the band’s past material. In keeping with its culturally-inspired concepts, “Seediq Bale” reaches further back into Taiwanese history to the legend of the Seediq and its struggle with Japan over land and religion.

    Hailing from a country with a little-known metal scene, Chthonic has gained national attention in its native land where it was awarded “Best Rock Group” at the 14th Annual Golden Melody Awards, the Eastern Asian equivalent of a Grammy.

    The award was presented to the band by none other than the country’s President Chen Shui-bian. “Music is more powerful, more moving than politicians,” the President said before Chthonic joined him on stage.

    The group capped off that momentous year by playing the annual New Year’s Eve live, nationally broadcasted concert in front of President’s Hall and with the release of the band’s Mandarin theme for the 21st Century Fox Taiwan release of “Freddy vs. Jason.”

    Chthonic’s previous albums, “Where the Ancestors’ Souls Gathered,” “9th Empyrean,” and “Relentless Recurrence,” have been recorded in both Mandarin and English.

  • Lizzy Borden album cover Photo shoot

    Lizzy Borden has shot the cover of the as yet un-named new recording due out the end of summer.
    Lizzy is working with special effects wizard and make-up artist Ralis Kahn (www.ralisfx.com) Although no details have been revealed, Ralis has designed the set and the look of the band based on the characters in the storyline of the new recording.

    Famed "Metal" photographer Alex Solca took well over a 1,000 shots in a two-day marathon, involving extras as well as the band (Lizzy, Joey Scott, Marten Andersson and Ira Black). At the end of the two-day shoot the set was literally set a blaze! with flames shooting 30 feet into the air! And all captured on film.

    "Because a lot of music is going straight to itunes, we thought we would pay special attention to both the cover and the back cover and fill the inside of the CD booklet with tons of fun shots from this specialized photo shoot. As we all know, very soon there will no longer be an actual CD to have a cool booklet for. Everything will go straight from the studio to your ipod, so we thought we would really do this one up right!" commented Lizzy

    Fifteen hours worth of video footage was also filmed during the two day shoot.
    Stay tuned to www.Lizzyborden.com for the "Making of" as well as the cover to be posted soon.

    In other news:

    Lizzy Borden has enlisted the "metal guitar" services of Jack Frost. Jack is coming on board to play the New England metal festival (April 28) with us as the second guitarist with Ira black. Jack is also one of the "special guest" guitarists playing on the new record due out the end of summer. (www.metalandhardcorefestival.com)

    Expect musical duels of radical politics and distorted radio static.

    Some much needed brain surgery and radiotherapy for all you Tumors out there!

    Preceding in the fall, THE AMENTA bestow the first official release of their upcoming album, "non”, which is swarming with found sounds and bent circuits.

    Not your standard ‘music for a fashion statement’ internet elite.

    This is extreme music for extreme people.

    Themes for junkies, car crashes, slaves and prostitutes. Distorted with metallic percussion, angular riffs encapsulated in the atmosphere of urban decay.

    "non" tracklisting:

    Rape
    Junkie
    Cancer
    Slave
    Skin

  • AS LIGHT DIES News

    As Light Dies is an eclectic and experimental band that mixes styles as black, doom, death metal, folk, contemporaneous music and progressive rock. "A Step Through the Reflection" is a very ambitious recording, exploring new paths in their music, turning it much more extreme and twisted, trying new sounds and atmospheres. About 70 minutes of music with influences that may remind to bands as Ved Buens Ende, Orphanage, Borknagar, Opeth, Arcturus, Cynic, Pink Floyd and Anathema. The final result is a peculiar, avantgarde and technical style, that combines both, melodic and agressive, creating ambients that takes the audience to strange, fabulous, fantastic and macabre oniric landscapes.

  • MANOWAR to headline the Magic Circle Festival on July 7, 2007

    March 31, 2007, Stuttgart, Germany - Throughout Manowar's legendary career, the band has delivered on its promise to return to each country where the band has performed. Still, the sold-out Schleyerhalle crowd was unprepared for what bassist Joey DeMaio would announce as he stepped to the front of the stage.

    On July 7, 2007, Manowar will headline the Magic Circle Festival in the heart of Germany, Bad Arolsen.

    The crowd was thrown into a further frenzy when the bassist announced that festival tickets will cost only 10 Euros.

    "It is a way to thank the true fans for their undying loyalty during the last two years of unfortunate delays of touring and record releases," explained DeMaio.

    The band's Schleyerhalle performance was part of the sold-out Demons, Dragons & Warriors Tour 2007. The tour, which also features Manowar's Magic Circle Music roster mates Rhapsody of Fire and HolyHell, is in support of Manowar's 10th studio album, Gods of War, the latest installment in the band's legacy of classics. Germany, Greece, Hungary and Finland are just a few of the countries where the album remains in the top-20.

    Look forward to the approaching Magic Circle Festival, DeMaio declared, "This is the unique beginning of something designed for the loyal fans of true metal."

    For ticket information and more breaking news for what is certain to be a once-in-a-lifetime event, stay tuned to http://www.manowar.com/ or http://www.magiccirclemusic.com/.

    The Army of Immortals will unite in Bad Arolsen, Germany this July.

  • PARADISE LOST present new album cover; finished video shoot for “The Enemy”!

    PARADISE LOST present to you the stunning cover artwork for their much anticipated upcoming album “In Requiem”, which will be released on Century Media Records on May 21st, 2007. The artwork was created by Greek artist Seth, whose gloomy designs already graced releases by Heaven Shall Burn, Rotting Christ, and the last Paradise Lost album (www.seth-design.com).

    Furthermore, PARADISE LOST just shot a video for “The Enemy” on the Crimean peninsula in Yalta with the Ukrainian director Edward 209 (www.edward209.com). Edward 209 already proved his talent with dark and bizarre looking videos for Front 242 and In Strict Confidence, and you can expect something really special. See below for some stills from the video shoot!

    “The Enemy”, taken from the upcoming album “In Requiem” (out May 21, 2007), will be released on April 13, 2007 as a three track single including the album track “Beneath Black Skies” and the exclusive single track “Godless” as well as a video trailer of the forthcoming PARADISE LOST documentary “Over The Madness”.

    Right after the video shoot PARADISE LOST co-headlined (with Testament) the Metal Mania Festival in Katowice / Poland where they debuted “The Enemy” live in front of 4.000 Polish fans. In times of digicam mania you can already watch it HERE!

    If you can’t stand the crappy bootleg audio quality, you can pre-listen “The Enemy / Beneath Black Skies” on www.myspace.com/paradiselostuk

    On April 12, 2007 PARADISE LOST will do an exclusive DVD recording show at the Koko in London, UK. Hurry up to get one of the last tickets!
  • NOCTURNAL RITES present new album cover!

    NOCTURNAL RITES present you the new cover for their upcoming eighth full-length album “The 8th Sin”, which will be released on Century Media Records on the following dates:

    SWEDEN: Wednesday, May 16, 2007.

    FINLAND / HUNGARY: Wednesday, May 30, 2007.

    The cover artwork was created by renowned artist Axel Herrmann, who previously worked for Iced Earth, Dream Evil, Unleashed, Edguy, Sodom and many more.

    “The 8th Sin” is offering a slightly more modern NOCTURNAL RITES sound with harsh riffs, great choruses and trademark guitar extravaganza from the guitar slinger duo Nils Norberg and Fredrik Mannberg. But old fans shouldn’t be afraid of any changes, it’s still 110% NOCTURNAL RITES! Jonny Lindqvist is one of the best singers of the whole genre with a powerful voice that makes the opening track “Call Out To The World“ and first video song “Never Again“ majestic hymns and he also has the passion to touch your soul with the piano ballad “Me”. And the tight rhythm section of Nils Eriksson and Owe Lingvall lay down a groove that will please every headbanger. So, watch out for a powerful dose of melodic metal coming to you in May 2007!

  • SENTENCED guitarist starts merchandising company

    Many have been wondering what happened to the individual members of SENTENCED after the band was buried in 2005. Singer Ville Laihiala is focusing on POISONBLACK who released their second album “Lust Stained Despair” in August 2006 and toured Europe with their labelmates Lacuna Coil right afterwards. In the meantime guitarist Sami Lopakka has started a merchandising company which he introduced at the Finnish Metal Expo 2007 where SENTENCED also received their gold-DVD for the overwhelming success of “Buried Alive” in Finland.

    After having announced the return of original guitarist Christopher Amott, ARCH ENEMY are now busy with the recordings of the much anticipated follow-up to the band’s most successful album to date “Doomsday Machine” (2005). The band is currently working on their next metal, yet not titled masterpiece with producer Fredrik Nordström at Sweden’s Studio Fredman, where the band actually recorded all their early albums up to “Wages Of Sin” (2001). ARCH ENEMY drummer Daniel Erlandsson checks in with an update on the recording process:

    “Greetings all Arch Enemies!

    As you might know we are currently recording our new album in Studio Fredman/Sweden. It's been a very smooth ride so far, working with engineers Fredrik and Patrik has been fantastic - these guys are pros!

    Anyway, all the drum tracks are now completed. We recorded a total of 11 new ARCH ENEMY tracks plus some other extras that I'm sure you will hear about at a later point.

    The new songs are very fresh at this moment. The new material is very varied, some songs are faster and more extreme than before while some songs are very heavy and melodic - but they all have the ARCH ENEMY imprint in capital letters!

    I have no doubt that these songs will please those who like to bang their heads to the sound of pure fucking metal!

    Check out the pictures from the studio! /Daniel”

    Furthermore, ARCH ENEMY has been confirmed to headline this year’s Up From The Ground Festival in Gemuenden, Germany (see www.uftg.de for detailed info), taking place August 24-25, 2007.
