SAURON have been released from their contract with Neurotic Records in an amicable fashion, and have now signed to Carnal Records. The band had the following to say, "We parted in good ways with our former label Neurotic Records. Since our musikk evolved more in darker ways, we now found our place on an underground black metal label. Again we signed for one album and it will be recorded this year. No title is set yet."
Germany's Black Goat Productions have finalized the track listing for the upcoming BATHORY tribute album, "A Tribute from the Hordes to Bathory", tentatively due in June.
"A Tribute from the Hordes to Bathory" will feature 25 tracks and 24 bands from 12 countries. The cover will be designed by Italian Lady Rock and will show a horde of black goats running across the twilight. This black-and-white drawing will be printed on a gatefold cover. Inside the gatefold you will find liner notes from the compilation's producer explaining why she made this tribute CD, along with photos of Quorthon. The set will be released as a double LP on coloured vinyl — yellow and blue (representing the Swedish flag). It will contain a 24-page inlay booklet including a nine-page interview the compilation's producer conducted with Quorthon in May 2001 in Stockholm. Each page in the booklet will feature two bands, with photos, logos, contact information and a statement from each group, plus a thanks list. The LP will be limited to 1,000 copies on yellow/blue vinyl, handnumbered in blood.

The release date of Sauron's second full-length album, "For A Dead Race", has been pushed back to October 21 from the previously announced September 20. The delay is being blamed on "manufacturing matters."
The follow-up to 2003's "Universe Of Filth", "For A Dead Race" was recorded at Double Noise Studio and is said to be "more mature, more diverse and most of all more angry" than its predecessor. "Expect eight devastating black metal tracks with a variety of tempo changes," the Dutch black metal band write on their web site. If everything goes well, there will be an LP version released in 2005 with additional artwork and a bonus track. An MP3 of the track "The Pestilencial March" can be downloaded at this location.
Sauron recently recorded a cover of Bathory's "The Rite of Darkness" for an upcoming tribute to Bathory, entitled "Twilight of the Goats", to be released later this year by Black Goat Productions.
