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.

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...

Constantine (DESCENDING) has joined German power metal band MYSTIC PROPHECY and posted the following message:

"Hello Mystic fans! I'm very proud and happy to announce you that from now on I am a permanent member of the legendary German Power Metal Band Mystic Prophecy! I feel very excited about it and it would be amazing to be in the band again with these super cool guys! I've played with them for one show last June in Essen and I realised how good chemistry we have together as musicians both behind and on the stage and personalities as well.
For those that haven't heard anything about me yet, I can probably tell you that I'm also the main lead & rhythm guitarist behind the modern death/thrash metal band DESCENDING from my homecountry, Greece and also ex-NIGHTRAGE member.

"At the moment we are preparing as hell the new album with the guys, so it would be 100% ready when we enter the studio in early December of 2008 to record it.I can tell you this one right now,It would be the most Heavy, Melodic and Aggressive Mystic Prophecy album ever! Stay tuned for more!

"So,that's probably all for now crazy metalheads! See you soon on the road and take care."

As We Fight Announces Another New Singer

After the departure of Jason Campbell in April, As We Fight has now announced Esben Elnegaard Kjaer Hansen (Numbnuts, ex-Stomped) as the new vocalist.

Soren Hvidt states: "We are thrilled to announce that Esben Elnegaard Kjaer Hansen (Numbnuts, ex-Stomped) has joined As We Fight as the new vocalist. Esben is by no means new to touring life, which his work with Numbnuts, Stomped and stand-in duties in Nightrage demonstrates. Esben has already performed with us on five occasions, and we are very excited to have him on board!"

Esben Elnegaard Kjaer Hansen is currently locked away in the Smart N Hard Studio with producer Jacob Bredahl (Hatesphere) recording vocals for As We Fight's third album, "Meet Your Maker," which will see a release later 2008.

As We Fight is, furthermore, planning tours for the Fall and Winter in support of the new album. The first couple of shows have already been announced and more will follow the next couple of weeks.

If you recall, back in January the band announced a new singer, who is not even the same as the one who just departed.
