Norwegian black/extreme metallers Hades Almighty have been confirmed to headline the first day of the Elements Of Metal Festival, set to take place December 3-4 in Sandefjord, Norway. Red Harvest will be headlining the second day. Also scheduled to perform at the festival are Guardians of Time, Octavia Sperati, Grand Alchemist, Cutthroat, Lucid Fear, V:28, Harm and Arch Nemesis. More information is available at the festival's web site.
In other news, Hades Almighty will appear on Norwegian national TV, on the program "Metal Blender," on Thursday, November 11 on NRK2.
Hades Almighty have uploaded the video for their song "Submission Equals Suicide" at this location (Quicktime).
"Submission Equals Suicide" comes off the group's recently reissued "forgotten classic," "The Pulse of Decay," now available through Dark Essence Records. The group originally released the album in 2001 through Psycho Bitch Records, the label formed by the band's then-management. That resulted in "no distribution," making it virtually impossible for fans to find the album, according to a posting on the group's web site. Now the CD has been re-released with new cover design, three bonus songs and the "Submission Equals Suicide" video.
Formed in 1992, Hades Almighty are currently working on new material for a tentative early 2005 release.
Norwegian power metal act Guardians of Time have parted ways with guitarist Rune Schellingerhout. "He [Rune] wants to spend more time with his kids, and we have to respect that," the group writes on their web site. "We have been through a lot together during his time in the band and he will truly be missed. We part as the best of friends and we wish him luck in the future." Rune will play his final gig with Guardians of Timeat the Elements of Metal festival at Verdensteateret in Sandefjord, Norway on December 4.
Guardians of Timeare currently seeking a replacement guitarist. All applicants "must be 100% dedicated to the band and preferably live in Kristiansand (or be willing to move here)." Send material to:
