A brand new KATAKLYSM track, "The Chains of Power," from "Prevail," has been posted on the group's new and improved MySpace page.
Comments KATAKLYSM vocalist Maurizio Iacono: "The meaning behind the track 'The Chains of Power' is essential. It's a song the band wrote to give gratitude and strength to all the courageous soldiers who fight for our freedom. It doesn't matter if you are for or against certain wars, nor the bullshit politics that are associated with these topics." More...

"We are happy to anounce the extras on the Return Of The Witch album have been recorded. Extras featured include: Arianne Fleury (ex-AUGURY) and Roxanne Constantin (NEGATIVA, QUO VADIS) and others. Rob the Witch's (guitars, vocals) recovery from a throat injury is going well. A minor infection is still on and off but everything should be good for the April 3rd show at the Metropolis in Montreal [with DIMMU BORGIR and BEHEMOTH]. Some tests will be done this weekend while Rob will be recording his vocal tracks on the album. If everything is good the band should be ready to mix really soon. Scheduled for first week of April, the entire crew and of course the producer as well as the band will meet on the set for the video clip of 'The Time Is Now' to talk about the last details before setting the official date of shooting."

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