Blackguard Vocalist Checks In with Update

Blackguard vocalist, Paul Ablaze, has checked in with the following recording update:

"I’m very happy to inform everyone that Blackguard are currently putting the finishing touches tracking our 3rd record.

"During our time on the road and small breaks between tours we were able to do proper pre production demos for each song ,which is a first for us . And all the preparation has truly paid off and has allowed us to work much more efficiently in studio.

"As of last Thursday I finished all my vocal tracking with Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy) at his home studio. That whole week of tracking was amazing . The atmosphere at Chris’s studio made for very relaxed sessions , if you can call screaming all day 'relaxed.' Chris has been a pleasure to work with and I now know first hand why so many established bands like Emmure, Despised icon and Beneath the Massacre choose to work with him. More...

Anonymus Part Ways With Singer/Guitarist

BW&BK has received the following statement from Quebec-based metallers ANONYMUS:

"A new page has been turned, After more than 600 concerts, five albums, nine videos, unforgettable tours, after shows worth of mention and thousands of kilometers traveled together, it’s with great sadness but by common accord that Anonymus and founding member Marco Calliari are now parting ways. The guitarist/singer was a member of the group for the last 17 years.

Those who have been following Anonymus’s forward progressions know that since 2004, Marco Calliari has been leading a successful solo career. After a few years of alternating between both projects and considering the importance of Marco’s involvement towards Anonymus, the band realized that it was in the best interest of the group to make this very painful decision:

'It’s been the most difficult decision presented to us since the beginning of our career. We feel that with Marco’s solo career the group was not moving forward at regular speed and numerous scheduling conflicts would arise.'

The group would like to emphasize that this situation was handled amicably and with the utmost respect for each other. 'Despite everything, we remain in good terms. Yes, the wound is still open but we feel that it’s in the best interest of the group. We sincerely hope that Marco’s career develops like he desires and we wish him the best of luck.' More...
