Susperia have received a nomination for best album in the 'Metal' category of the respected Norwegian Alarm Awards, which will take place in Oslo, Norway on Saturday 5th February 2005. The band have been recognised for their acclaimed 'Unlimited' album, which was released last year through the TABU label in Europe and Candlelight in the USA. The recording fast became a firm favourite with both media and fans around the world. Susperia are one of five nominees for the 'Metal' award alongside Mayhem, Enslaved, Red Harvest and Khold. Voting is open to the public and votes can be made at http://www.alarmweb.org/2005/nyheter/index-05metal.html
The band are currently working on a new video for the song 'Devil May Care'. The video is set to incorporate live footage from their recent tours and is expected to be completed shortly.
Susperia have lined up their first live shows of 2005, at the Hamar Metal Festival which takes place at the Hydranten in Hamar, Norway on Friday 25th Feb 2005 and at Horten Scene 37 on Friday 1st April 2005. The Horten show has been arranged, to make up for the bands' non appearance at the venue on last years 'Unlimited Grudge' tour. They had to cancel their performance at the time, due to vocalist Athera losing his voice.
Arcturus and Mantas are the first two bands officially confirmed for next year's Infermo Festival, which will be happening on March 24-25 at the Rockefeller and John Dee venues in Oslo, Norway.
The next two bands will be announced on December 24. Also, a kick- off party is to be held on January 27th at the Underworld in London. Bands performing live will be Arcturus, Enslaved, Red Harvest, Madder Mortem and Grimfist.
Norwegian black/extreme metallers Hades Almighty have been confirmed to headline the first day of the Elements Of Metal Festival, set to take place December 3-4 in Sandefjord, Norway. Red Harvest will be headlining the second day. Also scheduled to perform at the festival are Guardians of Time, Octavia Sperati, Grand Alchemist, Cutthroat, Lucid Fear, V:28, Harm and Arch Nemesis. More information is available at the festival's web site.
In other news, Hades Almighty will appear on Norwegian national TV, on the program "Metal Blender," on Thursday, November 11 on NRK2.
Hades Almighty have uploaded the video for their song "Submission Equals Suicide" at this location (Quicktime).
"Submission Equals Suicide" comes off the group's recently reissued "forgotten classic," "The Pulse of Decay," now available through Dark Essence Records. The group originally released the album in 2001 through Psycho Bitch Records, the label formed by the band's then-management. That resulted in "no distribution," making it virtually impossible for fans to find the album, according to a posting on the group's web site. Now the CD has been re-released with new cover design, three bonus songs and the "Submission Equals Suicide" video.
Formed in 1992, Hades Almighty are currently working on new material for a tentative early 2005 release.

Groups scheduled to perform at the kick-off event include Arcturus, Enslaved, Red Harvest, Grimfist and Madder Mortem. A Norwegian kick-off party will take place two days later (Jan. 29) at John Dee in Oslo. The lineup of groups performing at the Norwegian kick-off event will be announced in December.
Inferno Metal Festival 2005 will take place on March 24-25 at the Rockefeller and John Dee venues in Oslo. A total of 30 bands will be performing at the festival.
Arcturus, Enslaved, Red Harvest, Grimfist and Madder Mortem are the first confirmed bands for the U.K. edition of the Inferno Metal Festival, set to be held on Thursday, January 27, 2005 at The Underworld in Camden.
Commented the festival's organizers, "Inferno Metal Festival's arrangers realize that the international interest has increased with staggering speed and as a result of this we have decided to do an Inferno event in London.
"Since this is an Inferno event, we’ll announce the full festival line-up for 2005 exclusively to the U.K. audience. In Norway this will happen two days later.
"During the day we will in cooperation with Bylarm (Norway's equivalent to 'In the City'), have a press/partner gathering with press-conference, get-together, lots of freebies and more. And of course an eventful musical evening.
"The plan is to make this an annual event, and maybe expand to 2-3 consecutive days, or even different cities."
Candlelight Records today confirms October 5 as the US release date for the new album from Norway's Red Harvest. "Internal Punishment Programs" is the sixth album from the aggro industrialists.
Norwegian Grammy and Alarm Award nominated, Red Harvest have been releasing records near a decade, with much of their material still out of reach of US fans. This, however, has not stopped the accollades this five-piece have received from outlets big and small. Previously working with Relapse (via license from Nocturnal Art Productions), "Internal Punishment Programs" unites, for the first time, the band with Candlelight for the Americas.
Recorded at Subsonic Society Studios in Oslo and mixed by Fredrik Nordstrom, the album is already confirmed for feature story coverage in Metal Maniacs and the newly published Decibel Magazine. It is expected to be a growing and action-intensive year for this talented and highly revered band. A video for album track “Anatomy of the Unknown” has already been filmed and is expected to hit national and regional outlets in mid-October.
Unlike any of their peers, Norway’s Red Harvest truly are in a class unto themselves. More than mixing industrial and the most extreme metal, their music surgically units the two with such precision and intimate detail it is, for lack of better work, staggering. Where Blut Aus Nord (Candlelight, The Work Which Transforms God) travels the outer regions of a similar musical atmosphere thus blurring the dotted line, Red Harvest drive a stake right through it.
Track listing for "Internal Punishment Programs" is confirmed as Anatomy of the Unknown, Fall of Fate, Abstract Morality Junction, Mekanizm, Symbol of Decay, Teknocrate, Synthesize My DNA, Wormz, 4-4-1-8, Internal Punishment Programs.
