Music Videos To Get You In The Halloween Mood 3

That most metal of holidays is almost upon us again, but you may want something more than candy corn and blood colored cocktails to get you in the Halloween spirit this weekend. Earlier this month we covered the most over the top horror themed clips as well as videos that focus on the demonic and the diabolic, but that still leaves a good deal of ground to cover. For today’s edition of metal videos to get you in the Halloween mood we’ll take a look at the creepy, the atmospheric, and the disturbing.

Necrophagia Begins Work On New Album

NECROPHAGIA has recently finished the song writing for their new album "Deathtrip 69." Here's the latest update from the band, "The new material sounds like it should have chronologically followed 'Season of the Dead' Consisting of very dark and heavy riffs interwoven with audio horror and inhuman vocals . Killjoy is full of praises for the new line up and says that although it's been a very long time since the band has been active it's the beginning of a rollercoater ride into horror hell! Inspiration is at an all time peak and having known guitarist Boris Randall for over 20's years makes things alot easier when it comes song writing because we are always thinking in the same direction musically."

"Another element brought back to Necrophagia is lead guitar passages courtesy of Randall. Songs definately set to appear are as follows 'Beast with Feral Claws,' 'Suffering Comes in Sixes,' 'Naturan Demonto,' 'Reborn through Black Mass,' 'A Funeral for Solange' and 'Tomb with a View.' Necrophagia will mark their return on June 26th 2010 headling the Firewalk Metal Meltdown Festival in Milwaukee. Next up 'Deathtrip 69' this Fall along with a U.S/Canadian tour with THE MOST legendary black metal band from Norway (bands and dates will be announced very shortly) A demo version of 'Beast with Feral Claws' will be world premiered on the Necrophagia MySpace Page Saturday April 24th 2010."

Necrophagia Vocalist Guests On Bone Gnawer Album

NECROPHAGIA vocalist Killjoy has contributed vocals to the new Bone Gnawer track "Defleshed and Skinned."

Kam Lee comments: "It's a great - great honor to have the legandary Killjoy join in on vocals on this track... and his added vile vocal sickness only ads yet another level of pure sheer terror and horror to an already brutal song!

"It's been a fantastic and great honor to have all of these 'special guest vocalist' join in on us in BONE GNAWER songs - and this is a tradition we wish to continue with on each and every release we do in the future - to have 'special guest musicians' join in with us on the horror and terror that is BONE GNAWER!

"That's right freaks - the fantastic Spanish Master of Murder DOPI - from the killer kick ass old school style grind-core/death band MACHETAZO will be doing a 'special guest vocal appearence' on the BONE GNAWER track 'HAMMER TO THE SKULL' - and there couldn't be a better track for this insane brother of evil to appear on!

"Nothing but pure hellish angry vocals is just what we needed for this track - and DOPI is more then eager to supply a grand dose of pure hostile hatred for it! We look forward to having our brother DOPI on this track with us - and we hope you fans will enjoy this as well. If your still not familiar with the great MACHETAZO - you need to be! Their new album - MUNDO CRIPTA is a masterpiece of pure old school style grind-core/death metal - the way it was meant to be played!

"We wish to thank - Killjoy of NECROPHAGIA, as well as Dopi of MACHETAZO, and Stevo of IMPETIGO for their participation in joining us on the: FEAST OF FLESH!"

Opal Enthroned has rejoined Necrophagia on March 5th 2008. Opal was a member of the band during the period when Philip Anselmo was playing guitar for Necrophagia.

Opal stated that her main focus is now on Necrophagia's upcoming and much delayed "Deathtrip 69."

Dead To This World Choose Producer

Norwegian producer Bjørnar E Nielsen is to produce the new album from Black Metallers DEAD TO THIS WORLD. The album will be recorded at Nielsen’s Conclave Media Studios in Bergen.

Nielsen, who has produced albums by bands such as HELHEIM, SULPHUR, DEATHCON, AMPERA and VULTURE INDUSTRIES (of whom he is also a member), is currently building a new studio together with ENSLAVED members Herbrand Larsen and Arve Isdal. He is also working on material for a new album for his own band, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR.

DEAD TO THIS WORLD was originally founded by Iscariah (NECROPHAGIA, ex-IMMORTAL) as a solo project, but was expanded to a full line-up, releasing a three-track demo in 2005. Following the departure of their drummer, Iscariah recently announced that former GORGOROTH member Kvitrafn (SIGFADER, WARDRUNA, JOTUNSPOR, ex SAHG) would be joining the band to record the new album. Tracks from the original demo can be heard on the band’s MySpace page.

Ex-Gorgoroth Drummer To Guest On DTTW Album

Following the departure of Mord and Goatpromoter Lava due to other commitments, Norwegian Black Metallers DEAD TO THIS WORLD have announced that Kvitrafn (Jotunspor, ex Gorgoroth) will be taking over drumming duties for the recording of the new album.

Iscariah, front-man and founder member of DEAD TO THIS WORLD commented “I'm very satisfied with the fact that Kvitrafn will be lending his abilities to this album. Even though it's unfortunate that the others had to part with the band, it was still a necessary move. In fact, because of this, recording will start at a much earlier date than was originally anticipated!"

Iscariah (Necrophagia, ex-Immortal) originally created DEAD TO THIS WORLD as a solo project in 2002, producing a three-track demo in 2005, which was limited to 150 copies and available only for promotional purposes. A limited edition 7” of the demo was later released on Iron Pegasus Records, whilst Hearse Records released a split 7” with AUDIOPAIN in 2007. Tracks from both these releases can be heard on the band’s official MySpace page.

More information on the forthcoming album, which promises to remain true to the speed/thrash/black underground, will be available shortly.

Norwegian Metal Label Morningstar Records Is Born

MORNINGSTAR RECORDS is a new Norwegian label started by members of SATYRICON live, NECROPHAGIA, KEEP OF KALESSIN, CHTON, MANES and MAX MIDSUN. The first release on this new label will be BLOODTHORN's "Genocide," which will see a European release in February 2006.

The goal of Morningstar Records is to establish a solid independent label within quality metal and rock as a label run by musicians for musicians. Our intention is not to climb the ladder up through the underground, but to start no-holds-barred from the first release being "Genocide" by the Norwegian death metal-band Bloodthorn, their 4th studio album marking their 10th year from their first release in 1996.

After years of wanting to start a label focusing on the music itself and not on hype and hunt for profit, Morningstar Records was established by Keep of Kalessin mainman Arnt O. Grönbech. Arnt comments: "I was totally blown away when I heard the new Bloodthorn album 'Genocide' during their mixing-session in Godt Selskap studio, and I simply chose to buy the European rights for this crushing album. This is the album that will give the label a flying start, and prove the labels right to life!" Morningstar Records will focus on quality not quantity, and with the Head of Business and two producers from Godt Selskap Studio (known for recordings by bands like Necrophagia, Keep of Kalessin, Griffin, Chton, Manifest etc.) on board, this close co-operation with Godt Selskap gives Morningstar Records an advantage by the possibility to secure a professional recording of their artist. Plastichead is Morningstar Records' world distributor, and will make sure the music can be found in most retail stores, as well as specialist stores, across the globe.

You can view a photo of the MORNINGSTAR Staff here. From left to right, they are:

Frediablo Quits Necrophagia

Norwegian guitarist/vocalist Frediablo (Necrophagia, Grimfist, Gorelord, Hemnur) has issued the following statement:

"I have decided quit all my musical engagements except my role as singer in Grimfist. Necrophagia, Gorelord, Wurdulak, Chamber of Strength etc... I'm done!! I desperately need to distance myself from a large portion of this scene in order to maintain any love at all for metal music. I either stop, or I work myself into a state of mental and physical misery. I will continue to raise hell in Grimfist, and will be seeing some of you fuckers on tour next year.

"Thanks to all the fans, press and people that have believed in me and supported me and my work over the years. You have my respect, and you all kick fucking ass!!"

Milwaukee MetalFest Postponed Til December

This year's Milwaukee Metalfest XIX, which was scheduled for July 29th and 30th at the Modjeska Theatre in Milwuakee, WI, has been postponed till December 2nd and 3rd of 2005. NECROPHAGIA, MACABRE, MALEVOLENT CREATION, ORIGIN among others were scheduled to play. No reason was given was given for the postponement, but most likely has to do with unreliable, shady festival owner Jack Koschick owing tens of thousands of dollars to many, many bands around the world, along with the Koshick/Grohl Metalfest series itself becoming the joke that it is.
