Latest Carpathian Forest News
Below is our complete Carpathian Forest 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.
Sound Riot Records is very proud to announce the signing of Chain Collector.
The men behind Chain Collector are the singer Kjetil Nordhus (Green Carnation & Trail Of Tears), drummer Anders Kobro (Green Carnation, Carpathian Forest & In The Woods), guitarist Gøran Bomann (Carpathian Forest), guitarist Kjell Jacobsen and the additional musician Endre Kirkesola on bass/keyboards that have also played on Green Carnation previously. The band will enter at Dub Studio (used by Green Carnation, Blood Red Throne) to record the still untitled album; it will feature 10 or 11 songs. The debut is scheduled for a worldwide release in early 2005. This album has a lot to offer: a strong feeling for melodies combined with perfect musicality of high profile artists which the experience is quite wide, that is one thing the band take advantage of and put it into their music.
Fans of Green Carnation who long for the songs to be shorter and heavier, this is your dream come true.

The new CANNIBAL CORPSE album, The Wretched Spawn, has entered the German Album Charts at #74. This is a good showing considering that many copies of the album were imported to Germany from abroad due to the more brutal artwork of that version.
In tour news, as previously reported, Cannibal Corpse will headline the No Mercy Festivals European tour which features HYPOCRISY, KATAKLYSM, CARPATHIAN FOREST, VOMITORY, EXHUMED, SPAWN OF POSSESSION and PREJUDICE. Dates are as follows: More...
The Black metal invaders from Poland BEHEMOTH have already started working on new songs that will appear on their forthcoming album for Regain Reacords( Europe). Current line up is: Nergal- guitars and vocals, Inferno- drums and Seth- bass, guitars.
"2003 was probably the most hard working period in band's history. Especially the US leg of ZOS KIA tour, more than 60 shows that we played, was a breaking point for Behemoth. We took a very short break after last shows, and now we focus totally on writing..."
"I'm very excited about new songs" says Nergal. We've just started working on new songs, and develope ideas and riffs I've been working on for last months. It's just insane, I can tell you. This new stuff is goin to be so much ahead of what we've done before...we've never reached such a point of intensivity. Working title for our 7th album is 'Demigod' and this should tell you everything about what it will sound like. With no doubts it's gonna be the most devastating, technical and crushing record we've ever come up with ! New riffs just flow, the working atmosphere is just perfect...we've got so much new inspiration lately.
It will all have strong impact on what you will hear on "Demigod".
Behemoth is also planning to finally complete mixing of their first Official DVD.
In March they will be playing two shows in Greece with Norwegian CARPATHIAN FOREST. Check them out if you have a chance!
