Mustasch Gets "Best Hard Rock" Grammis Award

Swedish act Mustasch has been honored with the “Best Hard Rock” Grammis award, the Swedish version of the Grammy Awards, for its album “Latest Version of the Truth.”

The Gothenberg-based quartet was presented with the award by Motorhead drummer Mikkey Dee at the awards ceremony on January 9 at Globen in Stockholm. Mustasch beat out tough competition in veteran bands like Candlemass, Clawfinger, Entombed, and Arch Enemy.

“It felt a lot more emotional and fantastic than we initially thought,” said vocalist/lead guitarist Ralf Gyllenhammar. “Before the Grammys we thought of it more as an industry meet or a public event where it doesn’t really affect us personally if we win or loose, but when Mikkey Dee announced us as winners it was almost like a blackout of joy! Can hardly remember what was said in the speech.”

A clip from the event is available on YouTube and embedded below. More...

Artists Pay Tribute To Max Cavalera

Brazil's Roadie Crew and Argentina's Jedbangers magazines recently collaborated on a very special story on SOULFLY/ex-SEPULTURA frontman Max Cavalera. In addition to arranging a lengthy interview with Max conducted by Thiago Sarkis and Fernando Ibáñez, the two publications invited several world-renowned musicians who witnessed and/or toured with Cavalera in the early years of his career to talk about his importance to the heavy metal scene and to reveal interesting stories about him and SEPULTURA. This ultimate tribute to the most important and influential South American metal musician and band ever is the cover story in the brand new issue of Roadie Crew (which is out on the newsstands right now) and will be a highlight in Jedbangers' next issue, which will be released in two weeks (featuring MEGADETH's Dave Mustaine on the cover).

Here is what some of heavy metal's most renowned musicians have had to say about Max Cavalera and SEPULTURA:

Lemmy Kilmister (MOTÖRHEAD):

"Max Cavalera is a very important man. He with the rest of SEPULTURA were the first Brazilian band to play outside of Brazil, and gain a large, fanatical following. We met them in 1991 when we played together, and we soon realized they were arrogant sons of bitches same as we were! Since then we've played with Max, SEPULTURA, then SOULFLY, and with SEPULTURA featuring Derrick, the big lad. They always put on a great show, the fans go crazy, and they keep pushing the odds. Luck to them."

Vinnie Paul Abbott (HELLYEAH, ex-PANTERA, DAMAGEPLAN):

"Max is metal! We had the pleasure of having both SEPUTURA and SOULFLY touring with PANTERA and every night they gave us a run for the money. Max writes intense lyrics and delivers them with conviction and passion. His riffs are crushing and he has always had a great metal guitar sound. In short, Max is a metal god and he lives and breathes it every day. He and his bands put Brazil on the heavy metal map and brought a new tribal feel to the scene. So, here's to Max: 'dente preto my brother!!!'"

Mille Petrozza (KREATOR):

"I've known Max since '85. He was my first penpal from Brazil. Back then his name was Max Possessed and his brother Igor drew a self-made SEPULTURA t-shirt for me. Max is still a good friend who hasn't changed a bit over the years. If we run into each other on festivals nowadays it's always cool and relaxed. Max is one of metal's most creative and down-to-earth characters. A living legend!"

Kelly Shaefer (ATHEIST, NEUROTICA, UNHEARD):

"Max Cavalera is a fucking living legend, easily one of the most influential characters to ever play metal. When we first met years ago during the recording of 'Beneath the Remains', I was fortunate enough to work with him on a tune called 'Stronger Than Hate'. I wrote some lyrics, and helped him with his pronunciations, etc., because at that point he was not speaking English nearly as well as he does today. When I first heard the finished product, I was blown away at the quality of the music of SEPULTURA: they had great riffs, massive drumming, and it was quite memorable. I think since then, he has influenced many, many bands, and many in today's metal scene owe him a great deal of gratitude. I have maximum respect for Max, and all his work including SOULFLY. I tip my metal hat to you Max, you're a bad-ass mutherfucker!!!"

L.G. Petrov (ENTOMBED):

"Max and SEPULTURA were the ones that opened the doors for many bands from South America, and they got the rest of the world's attention with their full on thrash metal! I love Max's aggressive and energetic vocals. Personally he is one of my favorite singers of all time."

David Vincent (MORBID ANGEL):

"I've always had good thoughts of Max. I'm not only a contemporary and a friend, but also a fan. From SEPULTURA's 'Morbid Vision' death metal days to the innovation of SOULFLY, Max forged a path that in my opinion has given tremendously to the world of music. His early successes helped introduce the world to many new Brazilian artists who may not have had the same opportunities previously. I've seen the 'drink 'till you drop' days of the early 1990s and now the balanced, spiritual plateau he has achieved today, and Max remains a true star. From myself and the rest of MORBID ANGEL: 'Obrigado meu Amigo'!"

Entombed Singer Talks About New Album

Holland's Lords of Metal e-zine recently conducted an interview with ENTOMBED frontman L.G. Petrov. A few excerpts from the chat follow:

Lords of Metal: Last year you released the EP "When In Sodom" on 06-06-2006 and now a year later the new ENTOMBED album "Serpent Saints" is released. Why this gap of a year? Did something happen?

Petrov: Not really, back then we had written some songs, we had part of the album ready, but we also had a lot of shows back then. Having to do shows and writing music at the same is not a good combination, you know. In order to write songs, you really have to focus on it 100%, we like to be home to fully concentrate on it. But fortunately enough we did have a few songs ready to, because we promised a few people that we would release the album on 06-06-06. So in the end that became the EP, so that there was at least something that we could release. When we came back from touring we could concentrate again on doing some more songs, and that's what we did for a year.

Lords of Metal: Looking back on the career of ENTOMBED, I noticed that creativity or productivity seems to come in spells. You had a lot of full-length releases from 1990-1993 then a four-year gap and then constant releases again from 1997 to 2003 and then a four year gap again till now. Is there any explanation for this pattern?

Petrov: It will be eight years until the next album! (laughs out loud) No, as for the first gap, between "Wolverine Blues" and "To Ride, Shoot Straight and Speak The Truth" it was a business thing. Record deals not being settled and stuff like that. We just wanted to play music, we even had songs ready, but we had to wait for record companies, so that was pretty frustrating. As for the gap from "Inferno" up until now we have lost some members and it takes a while to get into the new mode, being a four piece. We are doing everything on our own now, we are independent, so we also had a few things to learn, but now we have also done some songs for a new album. So the next album will not be four years from now.

Lords of Metal: One funny fact I discovered: not one member of ENTOMBED has actually always been part of ENTOMBED. Even you. What kind of impact do you think this long list of line-up changes has had on the career of ENTOMBED?

Petrov: It is always sad when you lose a member of the band, but obviously you want to continue so you always try to make the best of it. A band always will encounter problems, one way or another, when Nicke Andersson left the band, he was a big part of ENTOMBED, but we did not think for a minute that we should go and do something else. Continuing was the only thing to do. All the bumps in the road only make you stronger, we are actually doing quite fine now as a four-piece.

Lords of Metal: The full title "Serpent Saints – The Ten Amendments" hints at it being some kind of concept album. Is that the case?

Petrov: No, not really. We try to write songs about what we think about everything. And we write about the evil spirits that are involved in everything, and on this album we do not say what one should do, we just say, "What do you want to do." We just wanted this to sound sick and awkward and that when you listen to it, you get a strange feeling, like "Who are those people…" There are a lot disgusting things going on, but that is probably because we are disgusting, haha.

Lords of Metal: The second part of the title, "The Ten Amendments", seems to be some reference to the biblical Ten Commandments. What is the link or the play on it?

Petrov: Yeah, it kind of is the reverse. The Commandments say "You shall not," but we say "If you want it, then you can do it!" We do not have ten amendments that you have to follow, it's a wide spectrum, if you want to call it that. If I had to formulate something, I would say that "You are what you are," or "The things that you do will eventually be in your favor." It is what you do what you counts. "You shall not talk until you walk," hehe, something like that! I live by that myself, I talk a lot, but I do things too!

Lords of Metal: I noticed that in a few songs there are some scream vocals. Did you do them as well? And how did you get the children's choir for "When In Sodom"?

Petrov: Yeah, I did the scream vocals myself. It was kind of new for me, but I always wanted to sing like that too, it is just that the last few albums did not allow me to do it. Live Nico (Elgstrand, bass) will do the doubled parts. As for the children's choir, that is us too actually. We just took a microphone and went (high-pitched voice) "When in Sodom", that is the only thing you need. When we recorded the album we wanted it to be fairly simple. Especially since we only have one guitarist now, we wanted to stay true to our selves and we wanted to be able to reproduce live

Lords of Metal: This new record is the first that you recorded with Olle Dahlstedt. How did it go? Why did he replace Peter Stjärnvind?

Petrov: It was easy to fit him in. There are a lot of drummers around, but we had a list with just his name on it! He is a happy guy and has the right mindset to be in ENTOMBED. He is a great guy and he did not sit quietly in a corner being the new member, he just gave his opinions right away. Peter had some personal problems, so he had to concentrate on that, obviously. It was the right thing to do.

Release Date Set For New Entombed Album

The career accomplishments of three-time Swedish Grammy Award nominated ENTOMBED are more than extensive. Pioneering the early European Death Metal sound, the band has consistently delivered recordings always one ahead of their peers. Now with "Serpent Saints" long time fans will find an invigorated and streamlined quartet ready to carve yet another notch in already impressive career.

"Serpent Saints" closes a now four year gap; the album following the 2004 special 2xCD reissue of the band's "Inferno" album (originally released by Koch then reissued by Candlelight in 2004). The album presents the band continuing to expand their signature sound as they embrace ten brand new songs.

With European dates already booked the band look to return to the US for the first time since 2004 in late fall/early winter 2008. Even with the first glimpse via the widely-respected and now collected early NIHILIST material (special demo album available now from Candlelight), listeners and now decade-long fans knew early on that ENTOMBED was to go far. Since their formation, giving rise to the classic "Swedish Death Metal" sound, the recently inducted Decibel Magazine's "Hall Of Fame" band have consistently upped the ante on each and every album, often adding unexpected curves along the way.

Fans have come to respect the band's experimentation and with the arrival of "Serpent Saints" fans will again find quality Metal and unique presentations from a band that so many respect and so few can rival.

Here is the complete track listing:

01. Serpent Saints
02. Masters Of Death
03. Amok
04. Thy Kingdom Coma
05. When In Sodom
06. In The Blood
07. Ministry
08. The Dead, The Dying And The Dying To Be Dead
09. Warfare Plague Famine Death
10. Love Song For Lucifer

Entombed Cancel European Shows

Long-running Swedish metallers ENTOMBED have reportedly cancelled all previously announced European tour dates in early May due to a death in the family of guitarist Alex Hellid.

ENTOMBED will release its new album, "Serpent Saints – The Ten Amendments", in Germany on July 13 through Threeman Recordings via a special arrangement with Candlelight Records. The 10-song effort will mark the group's first release with drummer Olle Dahlstedt (ALPHA SAFARI, ex-MISERY LOVES CO.), who replaced Peter Stjärnvind in 2006. The band has also scheduled a special showcase gig on May 3 at the Ballroom in Hamburg, Germany. Songtitles set to appear on the new CD include "In the Blood" and "The Dead, The Dying and the Dying to be Dead". Mastering duties will take place at the end of the month with Soren Elofsson at Cosmos Mastering in Stockholm, Sweden.

With regards to the musical direction of the new album, the band previously said, "'Serpents Saints' goes wider and deeper than the 'When In Sodom' EP but it's a pretty good indicator. It's no concept album but an ambitious attempt at creating a solid album with some recurring themes. Almost like the soundtrack to the film with the same name."

Entombed Comment On Upcoming Album

Long-running Swedish metallers ENTOMBED will release their new album, "Serpent Saints – The Ten Amendments", later in the year through Threeman Recordings via a special arrangement with Candlelight Records. The 10-song effort will mark the group's first release with drummer Olle Dahlstedt (Alpha Safari, ex-Misery Loves Co.), who replaced Peter Stjärnvind in 2006.

Commented the band: "We're mixing right now and the devil is smiling. Yesterday we got final mixes on the songs 'In The Blood' and 'The Dead, The Dying And The Dying To Be Dead' with top man Soren Elofsson at the console. He's helping us tweak the mix and will most likely master the beast at Cosmos Mastering, Stockholm, Sweden, later this month.

"So, where are we coming from on this album? Same place as always. Always the one constant . . . something from the cunt/cock and something for the clock, i.e. something for the gray between the ears and something for the primal forces below the waist and possibly something for the spot a little off centre in the chest.

"Musically 'Serpents Saints' goes wider and deeper than the 'When In Sodom' EP but it's a pretty good indicator. It's no concept album but an ambitious attempt at creating a solid album with some reoccurring themes. Almost like the sound track to the film with the same name. Get the picture? You don't need to.

"Without getting too philosophical and/or, God forbid, preachy, who the fuck needs that? 'Serpent Saints' on one plane deals with serpents (snakes, devils) and saints and how to separate the two. Can you? Are they the same, like most things and people, both good and bad depending on . . the weather and quantity and most importantly — on which side of the fence you are positioned. God and bad and/or positively evil. Most things/people are definitely both, and most in denial and/or ignorance — bliss, they say. Get it? Or should we Ying-yang you some more? No. Fuck meaning and fuck truth and shake your butt, or don't

"It's definitely not no doomsday prophecy of how the world is coming to an end boring bullshit. Humans have been pretty much the same for as long as we know. Once born we eat, shit, piss, fuck, play video games and die and since basic instincts are hard to break, probably will be for as long as we're here. We [are] all winners, how strange it may sound, that start from zero and go as far as we can in the 100 years, or less, we're dealt before moving on to become a plant/angel/cow/worm (depending on belief) and/or some new kid who rolls into town to reinvent the wheel, again. So what else is new? Not much. Not You. Not me. Everybody knows! So far, so good, so what?! (Great title. Taken?) ... What's what? We say, enjoy the chaos!"

Dismember, Grave and Absymal Dawn Tour Cancelled

Abysmal Dawn's Charles Elliott has sent in the following update regarding the cancellation of the Dismember and Grave tour that they were scheduled to be part of:

"For whatever reasons our tour with Dismember and Grave has been cancelled. This situation is completely out of our control and we hope that people understand and come out to support us next time. Words cannot express how frustrate we feel at the moment after taking this tour on such short notice. We would like to thank Mike Bear (Artisan) for offering to fill in for Carlos on this tour at the last minute. As many of you know he played bass on "From Ashes" and would have done an amazing job. The first date of the tour will still take place at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood on December 1st. The lineup for the night will be Abysmal Dawn, Coffin Texts, Letum Ascensus, Nema and Unsanctified. Tickets are only $8 for the night and if you bought tickets in advance you can come down to the show for either a partial or full refund."

This announcement comes not long after The Absence dropped off the Entombed, Dismember, and Grave tour "because of several unresolved problems" with their booking agent.

God Forbid Announce Tour and Plans for 2007

God Forbid have announce that they will be doing a short tour with A Life Once Lost at the end of this month. The tour will include a performance at the Saints and Sinners Festival taking place in Asbury Park, NJ. God Forbid guitarist, Doc Coyle, has posted the following update from the road:

“We are very happy to be home from a great European run. Heaven Shall Burn, Maroon, Cataract, Purified in Blood, A Perfect Murder and Narziss were all great people and excellent bands. Some of my personal highlights on the tour were the last show in Essen (the biggest show and the crowd was rowdy as fuck), Denmark (where we were fortunate enough to play with the legendary Entombed) and Austria (where fuckers just lost their minds).”

“There were plans in place for a U.S. headlining tour to close out the year, but it’s been rescheduled for Jan.- Feb. We want to do at least one more U.S. run before we start working on another album. What better way to come back than to play a long set with the biggest, most elaborate show that God Forbid has ever has done! We should have a concrete announcement in the coming weeks. There hasn't been an American tour since June, so we are raring to go. Speaking of shows, in addition to the Saints and Sinners Festival we have two shows with our good friends in A Life Once Lost and Diecast that same weekend. These will probably be our last shows of the year, so be sure to make it out.”

Confirmed dates with A Life Once Lost are as follows:

October 26 - Poughkeepsie, NY @ The Chance
October 27 - Orono, ME @ Ushuaia
October 29 - Asbury Park, NJ @ Convention Hall
