Manngard Enter The Studio

Norwegian extreme metallers MANNGARD entered Lydriket studios on March 15 to begin recording their as-yet-untitled sophomore album.

Commented the band: In the years that have passed since we originally released 'Circling Buzzards', we've all been busy in the metal field, it not necessarily keeping MANNGARD in the public eye at all times."

Vocalist Olav Iversen has seen major exposure and massive gigging activity with his doom outfit SAHG, also featuring members of AUDREY HORNE and GORGOROTH. Guitarist Olav Kristiseter has made his Norwegian debut as a novelist with "Blodlenka" (The Bloodchain), a morbid tale of Norwegian backwood monstrosity, largely based on the lyrical themes from "Circling Buzzards", as well as appearing on the JAZKAMER album "Metal Music Machine", alongside Ivar Bj?rnson and Iver Sandoy. Drummer Iver Sandoy has seen his services being utilized by ENSLAVED (the "Terje Vigen" movie project), more JAZKAMER recordings and gigs around Europe, and he is now also drumming for TRINACRIA, the new band featuring (among others) Ivar Bjornson, Grutle Kjellson and Arve "Ice Dale" Isdal of ENSLAVED.

While staying busy with other projects, MANNGARD has kept writing new material and fine-tuning it in rehearsals. Their considerable collective energy is now focused on the recording of the new MANNGARD album, which promises to be even more massive, twisted and evil than the debut.

Enslaved, Dark Funeral Tour Report

Even though Mark's in Bedford, NH is very close to my house, this time I decided to venture the vastly unknown territory of Hartford, CT. My main motive was the size of the venue allowing for better photo opportunities. I know from past, bitter experience that the NH/ MA area isn't a cultivable environment for BM so I was harbouring high hopes as to the number of attendees at the Webster. Which were boosted by the fact that the previous night's show in Poughkeepsie had been cancelled, so I thought hordes of fans would relocate to Hartford tonight. More...

Dark Funeral's Brand of Black Metal Still Brutal

"This song is about a very beautiful day," said Emperor Magus Caligula, lead growler for the Swedish black-metal band Dark Funeral. "It's about the arrival of Satan's empire!" he barked, the sentence ending in a screeching yowl that sent the Tuesday night crowd at Jaxx into an arm-waving frenzy of devil-horn affirmation.

Black metal is primarily a Nordic phenomenon, the genre's artists embracing their Viking and pagan pasts thematically and reverting to an almost primal state musically.

The evening's co-headliner, Norway's Enslaved, features the influences of Pink Floyd and Alice in Chains in its progressive black metal, with sung sections offsetting the Cookie Monster vocals and tempo changes breaking up the jackhammered double-bass drums.

But Dark Funeral is among the most extreme examples of black metal, and the group's hour-long set was uniformly brutal. The band's buzz-saw music is unrelentingly fast, and drummer Matte Modin incessantly battered his double-bass drums as Chaq Mol and bandleader Lord Ahriman hammered their guitars to create a dense wall of sludge, not flashy solos.

More Info On Dark Funeral, Enslaved Tour

Candlelight Records recently announced its second North American label tour package. Set to kick off January 9 Candlelight II: Phoenix Rising will feature the long-awaited stateside return of Dark Funeral (Sweden), Enslaved (Norway) and introduce newcomers Abigail Williams (USA). The tour will visit 20-plus cities before concluding on February 4.

Dark Funeral guitarist/founding member Lord Ahriman says, "since we announced the first European tour dates for our latest album Attera Totus Sanctus earlier this year, there has been a constant and completely overwhelming flow of mails from the US and Canada asking when the hell we will tour North America. Well finally dates are being booked! Last time we toured the US supporting Cannibal Corpse in 2002 we had a blast. Everyone we met during that tour was really cool. The crowd was totally awesome. It'll be killer to finally return overseas! I have the feeling that this is going to be one hell of a tour and we hope see you in January!"

Enslaved guitarist Ivar Bjornson adds, "I have awaited this moment since I don’t know when and now it is official: an extensive Enslaved tour in North America is becoming reality. We have been working every possible angle of getting over to present our music for years. We are looking forward to seeing each and every one of you at the shows. You won’t be disappointed; neither will we."

The tour continues Candlelight's growing commitment to the live forum. Recent Candlelight artists to visit the US include Vader (Poland),Destruction (Germany), and Emperor (Norway). This fall Candlelight will present tours from Dismember (Sweden), Epica (Netherlands), 1349 (Norway), Sahg (Norway), Daylight Dies (USA) and Witchcraft (Sweden), with additional festivals and tour announcements to soon follow.
