Polish dark metal act Darzamat has issued the following announcement about working on a new album:
"In the summer 2011 Darzamat will get work underway on a new yet-untitled album. Sooner the band will give some shows on several concerts in South America and Mexico. Recently the female vocalist of Darzamat is making her solo album under the signboard NeraNature that will be released in May 2011.
"In her solo face Nera presents quite gentler music, which can qualify with name of atmospheric rock and metal. However part of other Darzamat's musicians have reactivated black metal band Mastiphal which after 10 years of break has come back on scene with a new album. The album entitled 'Parvzya' will be released by label Witching Hour Productions in May 2011."

Darzamat has announced an exclusive concert in the capital of Mexico, alongside the Finnish folk metallers Korpiklaani.

Vocalist Nera issued the following statement about the show:
"For a long time we’ve had the idea to play in Mexico, so we’re really happy that we’re finally going to make it. Not only is it a wonderful adventure for us, but also a very important event, since our albums have been selling extraordinarily well over there. We’ve been getting great feedback from our fans in Mexico, so we just know it will be an unforgettable night. We’ve booked our return tickets for the 1st of November, so it looks like we will be able to make it with the second show in this beautiful country. But if for some strange reason it doesn’t happen, well, we probably will have something else to focus on… like visiting the formidable Mayan temples."
"Solfernus' Path," the fifth full-length studio album from Polish dark metallers Darzamat, will be available for streaming in its entirety on the French webzine Heavylaw. An exclusive listening session will be at website on Friday, September 4th. The album will be playing for 24 hours only.

Polish metallers, Darzamat, have revealed the details concerning their new album, entitled "Solfernus' Path." Bear in mind that the band has just started writing the songs for the album. The band discusses the details of the upcoming record:
"For the first time in our band's history we've decided to create a concept album. It is a certain sort of novelty for us, yet we've had such an idea in our minds for a long time now. The coherent story which is to be told by both the lyrics and the music, is a hell of a greater challenge than composing ten pieces in the similar stylistics. As the action proceeds, the music must "react" accordingly and suitably. It is as if a screenplay, which is to attract the viewer in an interesting way - tells Flauros, the vocalist of Darzamat." More...
Darzamat has begun the work on the new album, the successor of the released in 2005 "Transkarpatia."
Darzamat's vocalist - Flauros explains the silence of the band for the past few months:
"There've been no signs of life from us during couple of last months, yet the silence was only apparent. There were a few factors contributing to this very silence, yet I can assure that we weren't on holiday during this time. The whole group was engaged in a very hard work on the few projects. Obviously, the most important of them is the new Darzamat's album but the rest is not less interesting. First of all, our keyboard player - Spectre's been very strongly wrapped up in the new fantastic undertaking. He was asked to prepare a film soundtrack for the needs of the Discovery channel! It's a dusky and dismal picture as it presents the serial killers ravaging in Poland. Nera was also engaged in the whole undertaking and she sang there a couple of truly insane musical backgrounds. As far as I know, the film will appear already this year. Therefore, You'll soon be able to get to know for yourself how Darzamat's members ideally composed in this climate," emphasizes Flauros.

This year's X-Mass Festivals European tour, which was scheduled to include appearances by Gorefest, Belphegor, SkyForger, Madder Mortem, Darzamat and Prostitute Disfigurement, has been cancelled. The festival had to bear with a lot of band cancellations and line up changes.
The trek was originally slated to kick off December 8 in Berlin, Germany and run through December 19 in Paris, France.
BATTLELORE's previously announced European tour with DRACONIAN and DARZAMAT has been cancelled due to "booking problems," according to a posting on the Finnish "fantasy metal" band's web site. "BATTLELORE has nothing to do with the cancellation," the posting adds. "The whole band is deeply sorry for the fans and very disappointed in this situation."
BATTLELORE is scheduled to enter MusicBros Studio this month to begin recording its fourth album, tentatively due in early 2007. The follow-up to 2005's "Third Age of the Sun" will be produced by Miitri Aaltonen, who has previously worked with the group on their first two CDs, "...Where The Shadows Lie" (2002) and "Sword's Song" (2003).
"Third Age of the Sun" entered the Finnish album chart at position No. 38 back in August 2005. The CD was recorded at SoundSuite Studio in Marseille, France with producer Terje Refsnes (TRISTANIA, MORGUL, TURISAS). Mastering duties were handled at Finnvox studios in Helsinki.
