Shroud of Bereavement Seeks New Keyboardist

Massachusetts-based death/doom metal band Shroud of Bereavement has issued the following band update:

"Hello all, it's been a long time since I have posted anything here, and I apologize for that.
After a long break to finish writing the new record, we are finally back and booking shows. We are working on finishing an ep for promo use and label searching. We hope to have that released in the next month or so."

"We recently moved our synth player Kevin Royer over to the drums, creating a void in the synth department. Kevin is an AMAZING drummer and I have been waiting 5 long years for the chance to have him on the drums he will only improve our live situation. If anyone is interested in auditioning for the synth position, try outs will be held on Wed nights from 7:30 to 10:00, please contact me here or on my personal page."

NEMHF 2009 Adds Third Stage

The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will introduce an additional stage this year dedicated to up and coming bands.

The third stage, sponsored by Deathcote Records, will be located at Chasers Nightclub, located behind the Palladium on the corner of Martin Luther King and Commercial streets. The main festival will be taking place at the Palladium.

“There are so many great bands and not enough time to get all of them on during the course of two days,” said festival co-organizer Sott Lee. “Adding a third stage is a great way for us to showcase some of the developing bands and it’s a terrific opportunity for these bands to play alongside some of today’s top metal and hardcore bands.”

The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will take place on Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18, with the Atticus pre-party on Thursday, April 16. This year’s event is presented by Randall Amplifiers, Washburn Guitars and Eden Electronics. Metal Blade Records will present the main stage. Prosthetic Records will present the second stage.

The Atticus-sponsored pre-party will be a unique event that will be combining film and music, kicking off with a screening of official film sponsor Anchor Bay's film "Crowley," co-written by none other than Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson. The provocative supernatural thriller is the tale of a virtual reality experiment gone wrong, sending the soul of the British occultist Aleister Crowley into the body of a shy university professor. But even as Crowley creates all-new orgies of depraved pleasures and black magic, he is now preparing to unleash the ultimate occult event upon the world. Also showing is "Anvil! The Story of Anvil," a sometimes revealing, sometimes hilarious documentary about the legendary Canadian metal band. The movie follows best friends Robb Reiner and Lips as they make a pact to rock together forever. Their band, Anvil, hailed as the "demi-gods of Canadian metal, " influenced a musical generation that includes Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, despite never hitting the big time. Following a calamitous European tour, Lips and Robb, now in their fifties, set off to record their 13th album in one last attempt to fulfill their boyhood dreams. The film will be followed by a performance by the band itself. The pre-party will also be held at the Palladium. Admission is free with a weekend pass or $15 for non-ticket holders.

Prices this year are $40 for Friday, $45 for Saturday or $79 for a 2-day ticket that also includes free admission to the kick off party on Thursday. Tickets are available at all Strawberries, FYE Stores, online at tickets.com or by calling (800) 477-6849. Tickets are available now.

Following the success of its debut album, which came out this past August, SHROUD OF BEREAVEMENT has began writing music for the new CD, entitled "A Beautiful Winter", and will be hitting the studio sometime this summer. Expect "an hour of neo classical death/doom metal of the darkest fashion imaginable."

Shroud Of Bereavement Live Report

Aah, imagine my delight when I found out Shroud Of Bereavement were playing at Dee Dee's in Quincy, MA on Jan. 28th. I first heard them a few months ago through samples posted on their website and have been waiting to catch them live ever since. This was a long awaited fresh breeze of doom as opposed to the hardcore- infested New England scene. Being primarily a doom metal fan, I was quite elated to attend the show.

I'd never heard or seen any of the supporting bands so I didn't know what to expect. Fortunately, the whole evening turned out to be very gratifying as all 4 bands pretty much encompassed the range of my musical tastes. More...
