Pit Stories: The Miscalculated Stage Dive

Each week we check in with metal bands from around the globe to get their favorite Pit Stories from metal shows.

Today Richard Sjunnesson (The Unguided, ex-Sonic Syndicate) shares this story of a miscalculated stage dive:

This is a story from our old band Sonic Syndicate but still pretty entertaining, and seeing we are 3 persons from that band in The Unguided what the hell!? Anyway, we had this gig in Gothenburg 2007 on a festival called Metaltown. And towards the end of our set the former harsh vocalist of Dead By April, Jimmie Strimell, came up on stage for no particular reason, we barely knew the guy back back then, but I suppose he was just drunk and wanted to fuck about. Anyway; he was roaming around the stage for a while and I remember us being a bit annoyed by the fact. But after a moment he comes up with the brilliant idea to stage dive.

In his drunk mind he supposedly made some miscalculations as from where the crowd was positioned and that solid iron barrier between the stage and the fans. He however took off and made a miraculous leap towards the people, or so he thought, in fact he hit that fucking barrier head on, and made a total fool of himself. All this was of course immortalized by our manager standing in the ditch filming. And everything stupid like that eventually ends up on YouTube right? So now it can be watched below around 03:00 for everyone amusement. A small step for man but a giant fail-leap for Jimmie!

Regarding The Ungudied we are just about to release our sophomore album “Fragile Immortality” and once that’s out we are going to support it by doing some touring here in Scandinavia and a bunch of festivals during the summer. We are also looking into doing some touring around Europe under 2014. Going to be a busy year!

The Unguided Releases New Music Video

The Unguided has released a new music video for "Inception," which can be viewed below courtesy of Metal Injection, and the band also comments:

"If you take a brief peek in the rear-view mirror of our carrier, this music video is the thirteenth professional production up to date. We’ve basically tried and done everything when it comes to music videos, so we asked ourselves; how the hell do we top all that, with this release!? Certainly this massive album deserves to be spoiled with an equally spectacular music video!

"The answer came to be fairly obvious. We simply had to shift gear up to 'ludicrous speed' and add 'extra everything' to the project, of course in our own unguided fashion. And with the right allies in; 11Frames Production, right band and the right song; we’ve made our carriers most impressive and brutal creation; up to date!"

"Just imagine the opportunity to have a show; in a machine infested city, were laser sights are following your every move, right in the middle of an epic battle between heavens cast outs, while a nuclear firestorm is moving closer. I can’t picture a better location to unleash the live energy of The Unguided, and that’s exactly what happens in this production! We had a lot of fun scripting and recording this, hope you’ll have as much fun, watching it. Only robots were harmed in the making of this music video."

The band's new album "Fragile Immortality" will see release via Napalm Records on February 3rd (Europe) and Febuary 11th (North America). More...

The Unguided Signs With Napalm

The Unguided has checked in with the following announcement about working on a new album and inking a deal with Napalm Records:

"There’s been a lot of silence around here the last couple of months. But we can now finally surface that; the Swedes in the band and the Austrian’s (at a certain well-established record label); are in league to shoulder the highly anticipated TBA successor album to 'Hell Frost!'

"After lengthy negotiation between the two parties, we are now; severely proud to say that The Unguided and Napalm Records hails under the same banner!

"We've been eying out Napalm Records for quite some time and undeniably considered it as a very desirable home for our cogent operation. Fresh in mind; Napalm Records have been a force to reckon with, supplying us all with ace metal acts through the decades, rooting themselves as far down as to our very childhood days. Therefore it feels beyond certain that this alliance will be for the greater good. And we are very confident that together, the future holds; many beautiful things in its mystic and ever-changing puzzle."

Further details on the coming album will be announced as they are made available.

Dew-Scented Confirmed For Summer Breeze

This year's Summer Breeze festival will be taking place from August 16th - 18th, with full details available at the festival's website here. The organizers of Summer Breeze have now issued the following announcement about confirming new bands:

"Since the release of their amazing breakthrough album 'Inwards', Dew-Scented have been at the forefront of European thrash metal. Since then, the cool bunch led by frontman Leif Jensen have been producing fantastic albums full of unstoppable riff power and overwhelming intensity at nicely regular intervals, cementing the band's excellent reputation time and again. In 2012, Dew-Scented aim at kick-starting their career with an entirely new line-up – with the exception of band boss Leif – and the fantastic new album 'Icarus', and are gearing up to shatter the Summer Breeze Open Air into small pieces. We are stoked to welcome the indestructible machine called Dew-Scented at our festival once more. Get thrashed!

"When Agrypnie played the Summer Breeze festival in 2008 for the first and only time so far, they were booked as consolation for all those who were mourning the recent disbanding of Nocte Obducta. Four years, one studio album and one EP later, the Hessians have made a career for themselves, having now reached the same level as the aforementioned group. Their new studio album is still being recorded as we speak, but their last EP 'Asche' was already an announcement for big things to come in the realm of post black metal. Expressive, multi-faceted, melancholic, dynamic – all these attributes fit Agrypnie like a glove and are underlined by the fact that their songs don't ever become predictable or interchangable. One of the most exciting bands our scene has to offer nowadays."

The Summer Breeze 2012 bill now looks like: More...

Roger Sjunnesson Comments On Sonic Syndicate

Sonic Syndicate founding member Roger Sjunnesson has issued the following statement about his departure from the band and his new group The Unguided:

"Dear Sonic fans and fellow Musicians, I´m no longer a member of the band I founded with my brother Richard ten years ago. A couple of weeks ago Sonic Syndicate distributed a press release stating 'Last year we parted ways with two band members,' and I think this ambiguity requires some clarification. The first member they are alluding is of course Richard who left Sonic Syndicate in October 2010, and the second is - as some of you already figured out - me. However it should be noted I was in the band well into this year and that´s it.

"I will not go into any details. All I can say is that I never wanted this split to happen, and I did my very best to find an equitable solution. I have been in this band since day 1, written many great songs on all Sonic's albums that I am proud of, toured the world and met fans and every band I grew up listening to. This is nothing you give up easily and it feels strange to not be a part of this band anymore. But this is the last word and it's time to move forward. More...

John also commented, "I have decided to leave The Unguided cause of a few different reasons. I want to thank for my time in the band and everybody for the support."
