Universum to Record New Album

Australia’s melodic death metal heavyweights Universum will commence recording of the much anticipated follow-up to their debut album "Leto Destinatus" in the coming months.

Due for release in early 2010, the album, tentatively titled "Mortus Machina," will feature guest appearances from vocalist Christian Älvestam (ex-Scar Symmetry), guest guitar solos from Nightrage axe-men Marios Iliopoulos and Olof Mörck. Jens Bogren of Sweden’s Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Soilwork, Amon Amarth, Katatonia) will once again be handling both mixing and mastering duties.

Universum’s lead guitarist Michael Soininen comments: "We are all excited by how the new album is developing so far and believe that the songs have a newfound depth, both musically and lyrically. The combination of the new material, the great guest musicians Christian, Marios and Olof, along with Jens’s mixing and mastering should result in a great album."

Nightrage Posts New Track and Album Details

Having released two critically acclaimed albums on Century Media ("Sweet Vengeance" and "Descent Into Chaos") and the Lifeforce debut "A New Disease Is Born" in 2007, Nightrage takes a fresh and exciting direction while staying truly uncompromising in this new start dubbed "Wearing A Martyr's Crown."

"Wearing A Marty's Crown", recorded at Studio Fredman with accomplished producer Fredrik Nordström (In Flames, Dimmu Borgir, At The Gates), represents a long anticipated return to their roots, which have always been firmly planted in the Gothenburg Death Metal soil.

"Wearing A Martyr's Crown" finds Nightrage more mature than ever, but present is also a distinct will for experimentation and fresh ideas - though always inside the boundaries of what made the Nightrage name from the beginning; sheer brutality, swirling and soaring melodies and acoustic guitar work to evoke scenes and emotions of the deepest melancholy. Delving into a multitude of musical and lyrical vistas, this fourth opus from the international Melodic Death Metal martyrs deals with a multi-layered journey into the darkest depths of the human psyche, the futility of human behaviour and the most dimly lit corners of the untold arcane. Expect to have these eleven incantations burn your soul, yet leaving you wanting to come back for more.

To represent all this in a single song we present to you the opener of the new album, "Shed the Blood", exclusively on MySpace.

"Wearing a Martyr's Crown" track listing:

01. Shed The Blood

03. A Grim Struggle

07. Futile Tears
08. Wounded Angels
09. Mocking Modesty
10. Failure Of All Human Emotions
11. Sting Of Remorse
12. Holier Than Thou (Metallica cover, Japanese bonus)

Nightrage Issues Studio Report

Greek metal band, NIGHTRAGE, is currently in the studio to record their 4th studio album entitled "Wearing A Martyr's Crown" with long time friend Fredrik Nordström at Studio Fredman. Nordtröm recorded NIGHTRAGE's first two albums "Sweet Vengeance" and "Descent Into Chaos" and the band is thrilled to work with him again.

Guitarist Olof Mörck comments, "So the time has finally come to record the new NIGHTRAGE album, and after a year of hard work on the album we'll enter the legendary Studio Fredman tomorrow to record 11 songs plus one Japanese bonus. For NIGHTRAGE, the style of this record represents a journey back to the first couple of albums, but it's in no way a step back musically; there are some quite interesting arrangements on this album, the songs are straightforward and in-your-face, and it features both searing melodies and sheer brutality. All in all, it's a clear nod back to when the Gothenburg melodic death metal sound was at its peak, in '94-'98 (something we think a lot of people will agree with us on). Expect more news and also a studio report and video clips from the studio soon!" More...
