Kataklysm has posted the following message on their official band web site:
"Hello everyone! Well another year, another x-mas... good times for some and for others, just a pain in the ass... But whatever it represents for each one of you, we wish you the best for this holiday season with your loved ones. In 2006, we in Kataklysm have had a great year and it is because of you - the fans. It's not about how much money or how popular you get, it's about each one of you that comes to our shows and understands what's going on and give us that energy. You make this worth every minute. You belong with us and together we will conquer all because as you are our remedy, we are yours, we help each other. Music is the key for survival. Without it, emotions are lost, thoughts are distorted and feelings gone. We create music but you are our inspiration... Cheers to all of you!
"2007 brings forth new challenges for kataklysm and we start with our beloved Europe. We invite all of our fans to come to the kataklysmic devastation in January. We are prepared, join us..."

The CD will be recorded at Stage One Studios in Bühne, Germany in November with producer Andy Classen and will feature 11 songs composed "mostly of (Swedish) death metal riffs, but they will also contain mosh parts and even some melodic black metal passages," according to a posting on the group's web site. The artwork for the album will be designed by art student Martin Grossmann from Steinfurt. "We don't want to give away too much at this point, all we can tell by now is that the ideas and concepts we have seen so far look more than promising," the band write.

Münster, Germany-based metalcore act Neaera will enter Stage One Studios in Bühne, Germany in November with producer Andy Classen to record their debut album, tentatively due in early 2005 through Metal Blade Records. "We have taken some time to once more go over one or two passages in the lyrics and over some riffs in the songs, and we think at this point, after some long days inside the rehearsing room and endless discussions, it is safe to say that we have now agreed on 11 tracks which we are going to record in November," the band write on their web site. "The songs will consist mostly of (Swedish) death metal riffs, but they will also contain mosh parts and even some melodic black metal passages, but hey, you'll see (and hear) the result when it comes out! All we can say is that we can't wait to present our stuff to you people out there and that we hope you're gonna be into it! We really don't care what you call our sound, metalcore, melodic death metal, whatever, we just want to play concerts in front of people who like our music and can draw something from it for themselves, hopefully something positive!"
A demo recording of a new Neaera track, entitled "Broken Spine", can currently be downloaded from the group's web site at this location.
