DESASTER have finished the songwriting process for their upcoming, sixth studio album “666 - Satans Soldiers Syndicate”. This time around the German black/thrashers will be heading over to Holland to record at Harrow’s Studios in Losser. “Bands like the legendary death metal gods ASPHYX and other fine bands like SOULBURN, OCCULT, MELECHESH and FLESH MADE SIN have recorded their albums in this studio. Quite a good selection of bands we’d say”, comments the band. The album will be mixed in June and DESASTER are looking into an August/September release.
“The new songs are a strict continuation of the last few albums, which means NO COMPROMISE! If you are expecting innovative, ambitious music you are 666 % wrong. DESASTER stands for traditional riff metal – thrashy, black and full of blasphemy!”
Song titles include a. o. 'Fade Forever Flesh', 'Razor Ritual', 'Hellbangers' and 'Tyrannizer'.
Long-running Celtic metal act WAYLANDER were reunited with former band member and editor of Ireland's Metalworks magazine, Martin MacCormaic, for a memorable set at the fourth installment of Ireland's Day of Darkness festival on July 9. MacCormaic, who left WAYLANDER in 2002, took to the stage to attend to tin-whistle duty as the band performed in front of a frenzied crowd. Also performing at the festival were doom titans MOURNING BELOVETH, whose powerful performance on the day included tracks from the band's recently released third album, "A Murderous Circus". The festival was headlined by black metal legends ROTTING CHRIST. The four-piece celebrated their first-ever performance on Irish soil and delivered a rousing performance that served as a fitting end to the days proceedings.
The full lineup for the one-day event was: ROTTING CHRIST, DESASTER, MOURNING BELOVETH, SCAVENGER, WAYLANDER, CARNUN RISING, PRIMAL DAWN, DEVILMAKESTHREE, WRECK OF THE HESPERUS and GROUND OF RUIN. Photos of the event can be seen at dayofdarkness.com.
