Satyricon Drops Off Housecore Horror Film Festival

We regret to inform everyone that Norwegian black metal legends Satryicon will no longer be able to perform at this year's Housecore™ Horror Film Festival. The band explained via its official Facebook page:

"Dear U.S fans. We regret to inform that Satyricon will not perform at Knotfest in San Bernardino, CA and Horror Fest in Austin, TX in October 2014. The reasons for not being able to perform at these two festivals are both pragmatic ones and entirely different from each other.

"Satyricon will now shift its attention towards the writing of a new album, re-editing the footage from the 'Live at the Opera' live album/DVD and another project that will be announced at a later stage. It is important for the band that the U.S fans understand that you are far from forgotten and that the band look forward to come over for a full scale U.S tour as soon as it is possible. You deserve it." More...

God Dethroned Reunites For 70,000 Tons Of Metal

Three years after the farewell performance on board 70,000 Tons of Metal in January 2012, UMC, promoters of the World's Largest Metal Cruise, announced that the newly reformed God Dethroned will be on board the Liberty of the Seas in 2015.

Frontman Henri Sattler commented: "In early 2011, I was facing two options: one was to announce a break, and the other option was to quit the band. I definitely needed time away from it all, and having a break wasn’t reassuring enough to know if I would be able to recharge the batteries for another go.

"Oddly enough it was at the funeral of the man who discovered us in the first place that I came to realize the story wasn’t finished yet. So here we go again. Don’t think you will be able to see us playing every club for weekends on end. We will only play a small selection of shows and this won’t happen before 2015. Besides that, the core of the band will consist of only Michiel and myself. We’ll have some cool guest musicians lined up, though, to make sure we’ll give you the best performance possible.

"Last but not least, our first shows will be where we played our last ones three years ago. Our rebirth will happen on board 70000TONS OF METAL 2015. See you on board!”

Hardcore Activity In Progress Show Announced

Last year Red Bull Music Academy made history with Drone Activity In Progress, a once-in-a-lifetime experience that took the best and loudest avant-garde artists, mixed them together in a giant door-factory-turned concert venue in Queens, threw in three larger-than-life sound systems, passed out earplugs, and watched what ensued. Drone Activity In Progress was hailed by critics from The New York Times to The Fader, who called the show a “near-perfect noise show.”

This year, Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York has done one better with Hardcore Activity In Progress, taking place on Friday, May 16, 2014. Like last year, the spectacle will go down at the Knockdown Center in Queens, Nuit Blanche will again deliver an unparalleled multi-sensory experience, and Roberta’s Pizza will provide refuge outside for those trying to escape the overpowering intentional noise bleed. But this year, the event will blow open the doors genre-wise, showcasing a sampling of the most extreme recording artists in metal, techno, jazz, classical, noise, hip hop and beyond. It’s a showcase of music that exists at the extremes of their genres, and as such, here’s a guide to the diverse artists playing the event.

The lineup is as follows:

Tim Hecker (Experimental Music)
Skullflower (Drone Rock)
Napalm Death (Grindcore)
Gunplay (Hip-Hop)
Lubomyr Melnyk (Classical)
The Thing (Jazz)
Regis (Techno)
Bastard Noise (Powerviolence)
Wolf Eyes (Noise)
Okkyung Lee (Classical)
clipping. (Hip-Hop)
Yoshiko Ohara (former front woman of Bloody Panda; Vocal Music)
Joe McPhee/Chris Corsano (Jazz)
Reg Bloor (Noise)

Napalm Death Issues Album Update

After launching a special cover of "To Go Off And Things" by the Cardiacs, Napalm Death is now working on an upcoming new album and follow-up to 2012's "Utilitarian." The band comments:

"First night done laying some more drum tracks down for the new ND album... A different approach than the last record with different recording sessions.

"Some of the songs are worked out and some songs we are going for a more spontaneous approach to see where it takes us but so far we are getting some cool dynamics in drum tones and songs, which will ultimately lead to a more diverse and crazy sounding album! It's looking good so far!"

Further details are forthcoming, and you can follow the recording process over at the band's Facebook profile here.

Napalm Death Streaming Cover Track

After a successful run of dates all across Europe, Napalm Death is proud to announce two very special projects that have been in the works recently.

Today Napalm Death is launching a special cover of "To Go Off And Things" by the Cardiacs. Give it a listen below or over at the Napalm Death Bandcamp page. Shane Embury comments:

"Since I was blessed with being introduced to Cardiacs way back in 1986 they have been one of my favorite bands of all time! Getting to meet and become friends with Tim Smith, the musical genius behind it all, over the years was an added bonus. Tim always struck me as a person with a massive heart, who had a very pure and innocent view of the world in which we live in - something I totally related to, as the world can be a dark place - he radiated happiness.

"We shared many fun and elaborate conversations after Cardiacs shows in the early 90's and I loved every minute of every conversation with him. I could go on and on for hours about how amazing his music is and the immense influence it has had on my life but suffice to say this cover of 'To Go Off And Things' that we have recorded is in tribute to the brilliance that is Tim Smith - it is the least we can do for a man who has given us so much.

"Tim has unfortunately been severely unwell for a few years now and we hope with this recording made available to everyone for download on our bandcamp site for only £1 (you can pay more if your heart so desires!) we can help raise some money to go towards Tim's rehabilitation! We hope you like our version of the song and find it in your heart to donate something towards such a worthy cause...Thanks for taking the time to read this." More...

Northern Darkness Festival Cancelled

The Northern Darkness Festival, which would have featured At The Gates, Graveworm, Napalm Death, and many more, has now been cancelled. The organizers of the fest issued the following statement:

"Today we must deliver the disappointing news that The Northern Darkness Festival has been cancelled. The aim of the festival was to bring the best in unsigned and international death and black metal artists from around the world to a new event in the UK more akin to the European festival line-ups.

"Unfortunately despite a lot of interest from bands wanting to play from all over the world we have not seen the same level of interest from the general public and to date ticket sales have been extremely disappointing, and it is with this in mind we have to make to unfortunate decision not to continue with the event.

"In short events like this can not take place if people do not want to come and support them, with less than 2 months to go until the event date less than 15% of available tickets have been sold and the majority of those were from outside the local area and even other countries.

"We wanted to give the North East a place on the metal festival scene and had hoped to grow the festival over the coming years into a major international event but without fans wanting to come and support an event of this size we are left with no option but to cancel.

"We would like to thank those that showed support for the event and to all the bands billed as well as those who applied to take part in the unsigned band competition and those who did purchase a ticket in advance. The UK does have some stellar alternative festivals with Bloodstock and Damnation festival but it appears the UK was not quite ready for The Northern Darkness.

"Tickets purchased directly will be refunded automatically over the next week, if you purchased your ticket from the venue you will be able to get a refund from them. Please allow 7 days for your refund to reach you before contacting us. We anticipate all refunds will be completed within 7 days and you will be contacted on the email address you gave when purchasing your ticket. If you have not received you refund within 7 days please email us: bookings@evolutionpromotions.co.uk."
