Latest Disiplin News
Below is our complete Disiplin news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Norwegian extreme metal act DISIPLIN have announced the addition of Italian drummer Massimo Altomare (BLACK FLAME, MORTUARY DRAPE, DAEMUSINEM) to the group's ranks.
DISIPLIN released their sophomore album, "Anti-Life", in early 2005 via Moonfog Productions. The follow-up to the group's 2003 self-titled debut was recorded at Akkerhaugen Lydstudio and features a guest appearance by CARPATHIAN FOREST's Nattefrost.
DISIPLIN are led by guitarist/vocalist General K (aka Haakon Forwald, ex-MYRKSKOG, DISSECTION).
Norwegian extreme metal band MINDGRINDER, featuring ex-SOURCE OF TIDE drummer/keyboardist Cosmocrator (on bass/vocals), have parted ways with drummer Dan. "His leaving has a mutual understanding within the band and is from the given circumstances the best solution for MINDGRINDER," reads a posting on the group's web site. "At the same time we are proud to welcome Nex (EVILIZER, ex-DISIPLIN) on board the MG-tank as a new permanent batterist!"
As previously reported, MINDGRINDER recently completed work on their sophomore album, "Riot Detonator", at Akkerhaugen Lydstudio (EMPEROR, ZYKLON, WINDIR ), tentatively due this spring via Nocturnal Art Productions. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "The Rebellion", "Concept of Honesty", "Obligation to Prevail" and "Warhead". A video for the song "Pathetic Submission" was filmed last month.
Commented Cosmocrator: "The material is extreme, brutal and intense, based on the strongest material from the first album, but taking it even further in all ways. The expression is way more dynamic, raw and complete this time!"
Norwegian extreme metallers Disiplin release their second album, 'Anti-Life', through Moonfog in the next couple of months. The full track listing is: 'Orthodox Devil Worship', 'Feed The F**ker To The Dogs', 'Anti-Life', 'Kill At Will', 'Quimbanda', 'Militia', '11', 'The Arsonist Academy', 'Kosmos Reversum', 'Pesticide', 'Chaos Triumphator'.
ZYKLON's Samoth (guitar) and Trym (drums), both formerly of EMPEROR, recently participated in a WINDIR tribute along with Cosmocrator (MINDGRINDER) and Invictus (DISIPLIN). They recorded a "brutal" cover version of a WINDIR track in honor of late WINDIR singer Valfar. It will be released on a WINDIR tribute album this fall.
In other news, ZYKLON are now planning a new video for one of the tracks on "Aeon". There will also be an Inferno Festival DVD, which will include several ZYKLON live tracks. More information will follow soon.
ZYKLON have been confirmed for this year's Hole in the Sky Festival in Bergen, Norway. ZYKLON will be playing alongside such bands as VADER, KREATOR, DANZIG, SUSPERIA and 1349. In addition, Samoth will be participating in a special BATHORY all-star tribute band in honor of Quorthon. For more details, go to www.holeinthesky.no.
