ASMODEUS are scheduled to release their sophomore album, "Imperium Damnatum", on March 17 via Twilight-Vertrieb. "The production is true the most brutal and dark one we have ever had," the band write. "The sound fits prefectly to the songs and unleashes the inner darkness of these eternal chorals. The cover artwork is also done so far. It was again created by Juanjo Castellano from Spain, who also did the cover for [2003's] 'Phalanx Inferna'."

Dark Funeral Cancel Metal Baten; More Tour Dates

Dark Funeral have posted the following message at their official site:

"Due to the overwhelming interest for our forth-coming tour throughout Europe, we are unfortunately forced to cancel our planned show at this years edition of Metal Båten/Metal Cruise (March 23), a show we were really looking forward to do.

The original plan was to round up the tour and finish it off with this very special show, but obviously the interest for our tour is so much bigger than we and our booking agency (Dragon Production) ever could imagine. So by the time this show is set to take place, we will still be doing shows on the other side of Europe.

From the originally planned 4 weeks, we have decided to add two more weeks. Still, there will be a couple of countries, like the UK among others that we won’t be able to squeeze in on these 6 weeks.

Normally 4 weeks is enough to cover most part of Europe, but with the great success of our new album “Attera Totus Sanctus” this tour will bring us to a wider audience and to many new cities and countries. See you on the road !!!"

God Among Insects Expects Album Cover To Be Banned

GOD AMONG INSECTS, the Swedish "old-school" death metal band featuring vocalist Emperor Magus Caligula (DARK FUNERAL), guitarist Lord K (a.k.a. Kenth Philipson) (THE PROJECT HATE), bassist Tomas Elofsson (SANCTIFICATION) and drummer Tobias Gustafsson (VOMITORY), have posted the following update on their sophomore album, "Zombienomicon", tentatively due in early 2006 via Threeman Recordings.

"Not much to report at the moment since not a shit is happening in the INSECTS camp. We are still waiting for Threeman to hand us a definite release date for the album, but shit is happening with that as well. They have asked us not to hand out an mp3 of a tune just yet, we'll see for how much longer we'll play along since we definitely want you guys to hear something off the coming slab of death.

"We were offered a European tour some time ago and finally had to decline since Caligula will be out with DARK FUNERAL at the time planned for the tour. Bummer, but fuck it. Lord K Philipson is currently out touring with Swedish death metal veterans VOMITORY as well so for the third or fourth time in this news thing, there's simply jack-fuck happening with the INSECTS at the moment.

"But... We have recieved the complete lay-out for 'Zombienomicon' now and you could say we are ecstatic by having one of the ugliest damned covers ever on a metal album. If this fucken thing doesn't get banned, something is wrong. As soon as we can we'll hand it out to you as well. Maybe at the same time when we decide to give you a tune for downloading, we guess we just have to do the mastering first — and no date is set for that either, of course.

"We'll try to see what Threeman's up to with everything so we can inform you guys. No matter what, the album is worth the wait. In the meantime we might just start working on album number 3."

GOD AMONG INSECTS' sophomore album was recorded at Abyss Studios with producer Tommy Tägtgren. The group's debut CD, "World Wide Death", is available now on Threeman Recordings via Plastic Head Distribution. An MP3 of the album cut "A Gush of Blood" can be downloaded at this location.
