German dark metallers Eisregen posted a new in studio video featuring the new track "Land Lebe Die Nadel." The song appears on the upcoming new release "Todestage," which drops on November 15th.

Massacre Records has issued the following announcement about Eisregen postponing the release of the band's new album:
"Unfortunately there has been an error during the production of all formats of the new Eisregen album 'Todestage' so the complete edition has to be re-manufactured.
"Due to this reason the release date of the new album by the German deathsters has to be delayed to November 15th, 2013. All other album formats (limited and numbered DVD size Digipak, CD and gatefold 2-LP vinyl) will be released as announced."
The band also recently issued a track-by-track breakdown of the album, which can be found at this location.
Eisregen will release the band's 10th studio album next month on October 25th, 2013 via Massacre Records.
"Todestage" was recorded at Klangschmiede Studio E with Markus Stock, and the cover was drawn by drummer Yantit himself. Vocalist M. Roth also recently took some time to talk about each song on "Todestage." Check out his track-by-track breakdown below:
01. Waldgott: "The album opener is a powerful composition. It sounds like a film score in the beginning, but steadily builds a certain atmosphere and ends in an anti-climax after about 6 minutes running time. This was actually the main reason why the song was composed this way. Lyrically it's a dark story about a god-like creature living in the woods, that has eradicated whole villages."
02. Todestag: "A couple of monogamous relationships can only be 'saved' with hammer strokes so that everything's worth living for again (well, for one half of the couple at least, the other one probably wouldn't like to talk about it anymore...)."
03. DSDSL (Deutschland Sucht Die Superleiche): A musical homage to Pungent Stench (Mister Schirenc himself also contributed a few leads here), lyrically my personal statement about all the reality TV bullshit you're confronted with each day. Back in the days, the sadistic voyeur had to watch "Faces Of Death" to be satisfied, nowadays you just have to turn on the evening program on TV." More...
Massacre Records has checked in with the following announcement about releasing a new album from Eisregen:
"Eisregen fans are counting the days until the band is going to release its 10th studio album 'Todestage!'
"The sound of the album promises to be superb and sometimes also very brutal with hyperblasts, according to M. Roth. Frau N. Feind has once again recorded violin parts and Zombie Inc.'s Martin Schirenc will also appear as guest on the album!
"There will also be another guest musician, who has recorded the vocals for the limited edition digipak's bonus track, but Eisregen haven't revealed his or her identity yet. M. Roth also stated that the song 'DSDSL' is a homage to Pungent Stench. So it's no surprise that Martin Schirenc will be featured on this song.
"The cover artwork of 'Todestage,' which was recorded at Klangschmiede Studio E with sound engineer Markus Stock, is drawn by Yantit himself. Eisregen has now posted a video with studio impressions and a brand new song named 'Lang Lebe Die Nadel,' which means something like 'long live the needle.' The version you can hear during the clip is something special because it hasn't been mastered yet!"
Eisregen's new album "Todestage" will be released on October 25th, 2013 via Massacre Records. More...

5. July 2012 - 7. July 2012 DE – Hünxe, ExtremeFest Germany

The organizers of Extremefest have now issued the following announcement about confirming Forgotten Tomb and Ultrawurscht:
"Forgotten Tomb been around since 1999 and the Italians have caused quite a stir in the black and dark metal underground! 'Songs To Leave' (2002) or 'Love`s Burial Ground' (2004) are rightfully considered milestones of melancholic dark metal that the fourpiece infuses with doom and black metal elements. In 2011, Forgotten Tomb released their most recent effort 'Under Saturn Retrograde' and fans can look forward to one of the rare appearances of the Italians at the Austrian and German editions of Extremefest!
"It´s all about the sausage with Bavarian / Austrian act Ultrawurscht! Their highly explosive mixture of death metal, grind and hardcore – or simply 'Wurschtcore' – will one day conquer the world, and if you had the chance to check out albums such as 'Cheese Ass Built My Hot Dog' you`ll agree! Mixing metal and sausages should be declared a form of art anyway, so slap some wieners on the grill before checking out Ultrawurscht`s exclusive set at the Austrian edition of the Extremefest 2012!"
So far these bands have been confirmed to play Extremefest 2012: More...
