Konkhra Reveals New Song Titles

Danish metal band Konkhra has issued the following update:

"We are working on new songs, we started writing around Feb. 1st. and we already have 10 new songs/ideas, so it should be no problem to record sometime during the summer. The new shit is simpler in some ways, or maybe we just got more fine tuned between us, so the stuff seems more fluent and the lyrical content is almost channeled immediately into the song structure. Maybe last years visits to places like Mont Segur, Rennes Le Chateau, or Munich inspired this next release, or maybe the initiation process between The Masters Column and The Apprentices Column worked wonders fore there seems to be a natural flow of essence as if all we are and ever will be is predestined or at least preordained."

"Art is still but an Imitation of Life, lest we forget we are standing on the shoulders of Giants, or humbly trek through reptile footprints in our evolutionary path." More...

Konkhra Add Orchestral Arrangements To New Album

KONKHRA has issued the following update in the ongoing saga that is their next studio album:

"Just to let all know what's happening in our camp: we have decided to include some orchestral arrangements on the record. This will postpone the release a little, and some friends of ours already suggested that we change the name of the record to Chinese Hypocrisy. But, we will get it done. The video production for 'Hail To The King' is being planned as we speak, and if we get it done before the end of the year we'll be lucky. We are rolling out the tanks with this one, and the plans so far call for optimum timing. The producer thinks we should be able to be done around Xmas, but we'll probably premiere it around January."

Konkhra Part Ways With Drummer, Seek Replacement

Guitarist/vocalist Anders Lundemark of the Danish extreme metallers KONKHRA has issued the following update on the band's current activities:

"Well, I thought it was about time I told everybody what has and hasn't been brewing in our camp the last months. Johnny [Nielsen, drums] left the band — he has to take care of family and doesn't feel has what it takes anymore.

"We havent really been talking to anyone yet and I'd like to take this time invite anybody who's a drummer to get in touch and get some of the new songs sent mp3 to run an audition over. If you can groove and play blast beat 16th notes 240 bpm that should be sufficient. I'd also like to get someone with a firm internal clock and preferably capable of recording to a click. If you on top of this, are dedicated to extreme metal and get sick to the stomach when you hear the singalong girly choruses that has infested extreme metal these days then we are definately closing in.

"OK, that it.We have 6-7-8 songs ready now and I think we could be ready for recording within a month with the right guy behind the kit."

KONKHRA released their latest CD, "Reality Check", in May 2003 through Code666 Records. The album was recorded at Lundemark's own Starstruck Studio and was the group's first since their split with longtime label Diehard Records.
