Therion Member To Play Drums For Deathstars

Swedish multi-instrumentalist Snowy Shaw (THERION, DREAM EVIL, KING DIAMOND, MERCYFUL FATE, MEMENTO MORI, NOTRE DAME) will play drums for the industrial goth metal band DEATHSTARS on their upcoming European tour as the support act for KORN.

DEATHSTARS' regular drummer, Bone W Machine, is sitting out the tour due to "personal reasons." "I hope you all understand this and don't throw an EMO fit [over the fact that I am not doing the tour]," Bone writes in a statement. "The drums will not suffer though since the extremely competent Snowy Shaw will be whipping skins and breaking sticks in my absence. And no, I am not leaving the band."

DEATHSTARS entered Metrosonic Recording Studios in New York City on October 29 to begin recording of their new album for a spring 2008 release via Nuclear Blast Records. According to the group, "this album will start another chapter in [DEATHSTARS'] history of vanity, darkness, blood and sleaze."

The band adds, "The recording sessions will continue throughout November and December and the mix is set for January so get prepared for a 2008 filled with exploding deathglam!"

DEATHSTARS' sophomore album, "Termination Bliss", entered the German Media Control chart in February 2006 at position No. 87.

DEATHSTARS was honored with the "Best Newcomer" award at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards on June 11, 2007 at Koko in London, England.

In existence since January 2000 (formerly known as SWORDMASTER), DEATHSTARS features in its ranks former DISSECTION drummer Ole Öhman and guitarist Emil Nödtveidt (brother of late DISSECTION leader Jon).

Mortiis To Release Remix Album

Industrial Goth enigma Mortiis is set to release a remix album titled 'Some Kind of Heroin', reworking material from 'The Grudge', on April 17 in Europe, via Earache Records.

Over a series of progressively more ambitious albums, Mortiis has morphed into a band unit that has become known for aggressive live shows and ambitious records, and has spawned two Top 50 UK singles.

In keeping with the rapidly developing nature of the music and the direction of the band, 'Some Kind of Heroin' offers diverse remix material including interpretations by a wide range of contemporaries, such as Zombie Girl, Gothminister, Implant, XP8, Mental Siege, PIG, The Kovenant, Velvet Acid Christ, Girls Under Glass, David Wallace, Kubrick, Funker Vogt, Flesh Field, Dope Stars and In the Nursery.

Mortiis states: "I´m really stoked we finally got to do a remix album and since it's been in process for quite some time now I'm happy to be able to finally release it. I've always been fascinated with taking songs and twisting them into something different, the ability to grab the elements you like and put them into a totally different environment. The flexibility of that really appeals to me.

I think the mixes all those guys did came out really cool, many of them vastly different from what would have come out of the studio if I had done them. It's cool to see what happens when you let other people inside your head, so to speak. I think the variety of mixers and sonic realms created here will appeal to a large variety of people."

Track listing for 'Some Kind of Heroin' is as follows:

01. Underdog (Zombie Girl Remix)
02. The Grudge (Gothminister mix)
03. Twist The Knife (The Gibbering mix by Implant)
04. Broken Skin feat. Stephan Groth (Septic Wound mix by XP8)
05. The Grudge (Mental Siege Mix)
06. Gibber (PIG Remix)
07. Way too Wicked (Rape, Dope and the American Way mix by The Kovenant)
08. Gibber (Lysergic Club Mix by Velvet Acid Christ)
09. The Worst in Me (Girls Under Glass Mix)
10. The Grudge (David Wallace Remix)
11. Broken Skin feat. Stephan Groth (Funker Vogt Remix)
12. The Grudge (Emotional Heresy by Kubrick)
13. Decadent & Desperate (Therafuck remix by Dope Stars)
14. Gibber (Gibbering Idiot)
15. Way too Wicked (Absinthium mix)
16. The Worst in Me (Extraction mix by In the Nursery)

Mortiis undertakes a European tour with Deathstars in April in support of 'Some Kind of Heroin', with dates as follows: More...
