Stay tuned for more info on an upcoming full-length album. More...
Hades Almighty is back! The band comments about returning with a new front man:
"A lot has been festering in the Hades horde in the last year, and we are now finally able to reveal some details.
"First, we hereby present the mighty Ask Ty as our new musical orator and screamer of blood curling verses. Known as drummer and part time vocalist of bands like Kampfar and Krakow, Ask Ty brings fresh nutrients to the soil of the Horde. We have been working together for the last 6 months, and the harvest has been fruitful.
"Secondly, we hereby announce the first studio release since 2001’s 'The Pulse of Decay.' This will be an EP, titled 'Pyre Era, Black!' which will lead up to the next album released not long after. Both will be released through Dark Essence Records. Prepare for the Dawn of a New Era!" More...
Although the band’s recorded output has lain virtually dormant since 2004 when Dark Essence Records re-released the 2001 album “The Pulse of Decay,” things are definitely starting to stir in the Hades Almighty recording front.
So much so, in fact, that Dark Essence has renewed its contract and is planning to release a new album from the legendary Norwegians. Further details are forthcoming.

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.
