"The Calgary show is cancelled due the lack of equipment. First of all the show got moved from the Warehouse to the Underground! No agreement with the band, no PA, no lights! The band is disappointed and really sorry about that situation, as everybody tried to find a solution to make the show happen. Sorry folks but without equipment a metal concert is not possible."

"After the fierce release of Southern Storm – the most recent and acclaimed Krisiun album - which is absolute success among specialized media and fans, the band have already accomplished a remarkable tour schedule that included the US, Canada, East and West Europe, Russia and great festivals such as With Full Force, Hell Fest, GDL Metal Fest and Trois-Rivieres Metalfest.
"2009 promises much more of the violent smashing sonority of those truly death metal warriors to their fans. New dates have been announced and the trio returns to North America along with Destruction in March, where they will perform 30 concerts, including again the US and Canada. Right after this tour the brothers will cross the planet heading to Australia and New Zealand for another series of demolishing performances.

2008 has become an extremely exciting year in the history of Century Media Records, one of the world's most respected independent homes for heavy music, as the label is celebrating its 20th anniversary!
The company's Anniversary year started off with an extremely successful, first-ever yard sale/party at the Century Media office in Dortmund (Germany) in June, where several hundred guests partied out on exclusive live shows by Angel Dust and Turisas. A video with impressions from the event can be seen at this location. A photo gallery for this event can be viewed here.
To further celebrate this anniversary Century Media Records will release the very special 2CD compilation "Covering 20 Years Of Extremes" on September 15th in Europe and on October 14th in North America. The various artists covers-release includes 32 mostly exclusive recordings and will be available in stores for the price of one CD. Sticking to the "keep it in the family" slogan, CM approached their artists about covering songs from other acts within the label's repertoire and the response from the musicians was overwhelming.
Some choices were obvious and homages to the bands that influenced them, others were inspired picks. This combination ended up leading to a heavily entertaining and truly special final result across all sub-genres of heavy music.
Here is the tracklisting: More...
Brazilian death metal act Krisiun have posted the following message:
“We would like to thank everybody at With Full Force for giving us the opportunity to play at this great festival once again, and to all the maniacs who were there going crazy with the brutal speed assault discharged during our set. We also had a lot of fun drinking and smoking with our old friends in MORBID ANGEL, Nick Barker, Danny Lilker, BELPHEGOR, MAYHEM, and many other friends involved in the music business. What a great festival. Germany fuckin rules!
Our new album Southern Storm is about to be released, and in November/December we will be back on tour to bring you all, real metal maniacs, the storm of pure brutal extreme metal. The new album gives you KRISIUN’s best – it’s relentless, insane, totally brutal, with no mercy for the weak. Like a Storm of Steel this album will devastate and kill all the posers, trend followers, betrayers and wimps who dare to say they play Metal. So get ready, the storm is coming.” More...

Death metal legends Vader have issued the following announcement on their official website:
It's going to be the loudest anniversary! 25 years on death metal scene, what a great result! Only few bands were able to survive for so unimaginable period of time. Among them there's a Polish death metal band Vader! Massive Music - band's management and booking agency is going to celebrate this great anniversary with a special concert. The show will take place in Warsaw, at Stodola Club on 30th of August.
"Hopefully the venue will be completely packed this day. There are at least a few good reasons to come to this special show. You will see a bunch of famous metal guests, also bands that in the 80's together with Vader created extreme metal scene. The guest-list we've created is quite impressive. Unfortunately, some of them can't appear on the show due to their other obligations. Some of them are maybe too big to be a part of this, I would say- pretty uncommercial event. That's also why we decided to organize this anniversary at Stodola Club, it will be a show for most dedicated Vader's maniacs. Anyhow, you can expect a great package! " (Mariusz Kmiolek - Massive Music)
First bands confirmed for this show are Grave (Sweden), Nile (US), Rotting Christ (Greece) and Krisiun (Brazil). More special guests of Vader's anniversary gig will be announced soon. Another good reason to come to the show is of course Vader! The band will play over two-hour liveset, presenting songs from old demo tapes as well as Vader's famous hits from recent studio albums. The show will be filmed for an anniversary DVD release tentatively called "XXV" (to be released in 2009).
"This time we can promise you a very special release. We don't want to screw up things as it happened with our latest DVD. To refresh the entire concept of a metal DVD we decided to work with people who have never filmed a metal show. They have a great experience in making videoclips, TV programs, advertisements and other things. Those fresh ideas blended with our visions will guarantee something really special. The DVD will feature not only a show, but also a lot of backstage footage including many surprises." (Mariusz Kmiolek - Massive Music)
Exclusively for this day Vader will prepare not only a special live set, but also a special stage design and some other surprises. On the anniversary party you will see also some other famous guests from a music industry. The band is going to launch a special anniversary website. Be prepared for XXV anniversary of Vader!
