The Amenta Comments On Vader Tour

Sydney Australia-based extreme metal act THE AMENTA will join VADER, DECREPIT BIRTH, WARBRINGER, AUGURY, S.W.W.A.A.T.S. on “Monsters Of Death Tour” presented by Decibel Magazine. Keyboardist/sampler, Tim Pope, comments on the tour, “THE AMENTA is very honored to be sharing a stage with VADER in North America on the "Decibel Presents: Monsters Of Death Tour". Our first European tour - Winterfest 2009 - was with Vader earlier this year and we know that we’re going to have a great time both offstage and on with those guys. It’s a very strong bill and we can’t wait to see the other bands in action. We’ve heard so much about touring North America and can’t wait to get over there to blow people away. We are on the top of our game at the moment and the States will finally get to see what we are capable of. Thanks to everyone involved for giving us a chance. It’s a great honor to have such a strong tour for our first time on your shores. To the fans in the States: Get ready. You haven’t seen anything like us.” More...

Augury Book Studio Time For November

Canadian progressive death metallers AUGURY will enter the studio in November to record their second album for a tentative spring 2008 release. The follow-up to 2004's "Concealed" will feature original drummer Etienne Gallo and will be produced by Yannick St-Amand and Hugues Deslauriers.

According to the band's official bio, "AUGURY doesn't identify itself with any pre-established school of music, but it can be fit into the extreme metal category since they favor fast playing, low tuning and rough vocals. A further link can be made with the Norwegian symphonic black metal scene for the use of classical, Celtic and medieval overtones and the lush vocal harmonies that embellish about half of the songs. Triplet feels and guitar/bass dual and triple harmonies are indeed a staple of AUGURY's music. Yet there is no keyboard, no fake vampire image and a totally different lyrical concept. Also, the musicians add influences from a lot of other sources. All members are big fans of progressive rock, classical baroque and jazz and there is a big flamenco influence in the playing."

Negativa Cancel Tour Dates

NEGATIVA, the Quebec-based band featuring former GORGUTS members Steeve Hurdle (guitar, vocals) and Luc Lemay (guitar, vocals), along with Etienne Gallo (drums, AUGURY) and Miguel Valade (bass, ex-ION DISSONANCE), has issued the following update:

"We're really disappointed to announce that we have to cancel the shows scheduled from August 1-3 in Toronto, Hamilton and London. The guitarist/vocalist Big Steeve Hurdle had a back injury on Sunday, and he should rest for at least one week. We were looking forward to do these shows because they were the very first ones for the band. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a little longer before to hit the stage for the first time. As of today, we have no fixed plans about rescheduling the three dates but we'll try to make it up for our Ontario fans before the end of the year if we can. Thanks for your understanding." More...

"The last few weeks have been very thrilling for us as we have finally arranged to enter studio in mid-September to record three songs. We will again be working with our old friend Pierre Remillard but this time it will be at his famous Wild Studio. Pierre has produced GORGUTS' very first demo, 'And Then Comes Lividity', back in 1989, plus the albums 'Obscura' in 1998 and 'From Wisdom To Hate' in 2001. He will be assisted by none other than Jean-Yves Theriault, a.k.a. Blacky and former VOÏVOD. We will be more than honored to work with him in the studio. At the end of September, expect a MySpace page for you to, at last, listen to our music." Songtitles set to appear on the mini-CD are "Chaos in Motion", "Taedium Vitae" and "Rebellion".
