Byzantine Release Trailer For "Salvation" DVD

BYZANTINE have unveiled a trailer for the upcoming 'Salvation' DVD which will see an early 2007 through Prosthetic Records. The DVD will feature a live performance film featuring a new, unreleased song, guitar and bass tutorials from guitarist Tony Rohrbough and bassist Skip Cromer, interviews with the band members along with behind the scenes footage. The trailer is available at the band's MySpace page or on YouTube.

Currently working on the follow-up full-length album to 2005's '...And They Shall Take Up Serpents,' BYZANTINE will take a break in February from recording with Aaron Fisher to hit the road with God Forbid, Goatwhore, Mnemic and Arsis on the "Chains of Humanity" tour before returning to the studio to complete the recording of the yet-untitled new BYZANTINE DVD which will also see a 2007 release through Prosthetic.

"We have so far 11 songs in the bag and most likely will have 15 penned by the time pre-production starts," vocalist/guitarist OJ Ojeda previously stated. "Normally we write 10 and use 10, but riffs are flowing like mad and all four of us are writing material this time, which has been very interesting. All I can say is if this album doesn't kick our first two albums' asses, something is wrong! Some songs are pure thrash, some songs are off time as hell and some songs are depressing and dark. This album WILL be our finest effort."

BYZANTINE will also appear on the upcoming EyeHateGod tribute record, 'For The Sick: A Tribute to Eyehategod,' performing the track "Shoplift." The record is currently slated for a Feb. 20 release through Season Mist America and Prosthetic labelmates THE ESOTERIC and KYLESA will also contribute. More details are available here.

Byzantine Update On New DVD And Album

Byzantine frontman OJ has offered the following update on the band's happenings:

Know it seems like we have fell of the face of the planet, but things have been really busy in the Byzantine camp both personal and professional. My fiancé and I have bought a home this summer and are also getting prepared for our wedding this October which have sidetracked the bands' summer touring plans, but we have been working at home on other things for you guys.

First off, we have been busy keeping our chops up by recording some cover tunes. We recorded a version of "Shop Lift" from EyeHateGod and also recorded "The Hellion/Electric Eye" from Judas Priest. Both will be on tribute albums coming out this fall.

Secondly, we officially have shot and compiled all the footage for our first ever DVD, entitled Salvation: Taking Up Serpents, which will be out around Christmas time. This DVD will include our video for “Jeremiad,” bootlegs from around the country, a live long-form video consisting of a 6 song set list, interviews, guitar tutorials, studio footage and other cool shit for you guys to enjoy. Make sure you pick up your copy when it hits stores.

Also, we have been slaving away writing our 3rd and upcoming album. We have so far 11 songs in the bag and most likely will have 15 penned by the time pre-production starts. Normally we write 10 and use 10, but riffs are flowing like mad and all four of us are writing material this time which has been very interesting. All I can say is if this album doesn't kick our first 2 albums’ asses, something is wrong! Some songs are pure thrash, some songs are off time as hell and some songs are depressing and dark. This album WILL be our finest effort.

Look for us at the end of September when we hit the road for some dates with Metal Blade recording artist Demiricous. Then it is off to figure out how to play this new shit! Till then...

Byzantine Recording Eyehategod Cover For Tribute

West Virginia thrashers Byzantine recently entered the studio to record a cover song for an upcoming upcoming Eyehategod tribute album. Lead guitarist Tony Rohrbough offers this update:

"Hi everyone. Just a quick update here to let everyone know what’s up. While most of you were chowing down on some Easter dinner last Sunday, we were in the studio. We went back to Aaron Fisher’s 101 Productions Studio, where we recorded our previous albums and recorded a cover song for an upcoming Eyehategod tribute album. We recorded 'Shoplift' from their Take as Needed for Pain album. I really like the way it turned out. It sounds absolutely nothing like us but it also does in some ways. Sludgy-as-all-hell-stoner-doom. You’ll just have to hear it. We don’t have a release date on the album at this time but whenever it comes out, we’ll be selling copies at our shows. Until then, you’ll just have to bug one of us to let you hear it."

Byzantine is currently biding time playing headlining shows to support the band's 2005 release, '...And They Shall Take Up Serpents' before appearing at the 8th Annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival on Sunday, April 30. Then, the band will be support for Kittie on select shows through mid-May.

Byzantine has also added a live video of "Hatfield," from the band's Prosthetic debut 'The Fundamental Component,' featuring a guest appearance by Lamb of God's Randy Blythe on the Byzantine MySpace page (http://www.myspace.com/byzantine).

Shadows Fall Drummer Issues Update

SHADOWS FALL drummer Jason Bittner has issued the following update:

"As some of you may know, last week I had one of my longtime dreams come true when I was asked to fill in for Charlie Benante and ANTHRAX for the last two shows of their tour! Charlie and his wife Sandra were expecting their first child (initially due Feb. 14) and lo and behold, two weeks ago on the 18th her water broke!!!! Obviously Charlie was on the first plane back to Chicago... meanwhile giving me the phone call of a lifetime! 'Hey dude, can you do me a favor?' DUHHHHH!!! Does a bear shit in the woods?? So anyhow, at this point I was in San Diego on my way to Anaheim for the NAMM show... I talked with Scott (Ian) he gave me a setlist (most of which I'd been playing in my basement since 1987)... and then he and Frankie (Bello) came to Anaheim to get together for our one rehearsal! Talk about pressure! The next day I did my NAMM signings and then my wife and I hopped on a plane to San Francisco for the first show. I got to the gig literally 90 minutes prior to going on stage. Went and moved a few little things on Charlie's kit (I wanted to keep it as ANTHRAX as possible), warmed up, and it was showtime!! From the moment I heard the intro to 'Among the Living', I was literally shaking... Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, this was an OUTSIDE gig!!! 50 degrees in January! Whose brilliant idea was that?? But I was still shaking from my nerves... something that Frankie helped me calm by feeding me shots of Crown during the show!!

"So a few mistakes here and there, nothing TOO dramatic (thankfully), but we made it through, and it rocked!!! Everyone had a great time. It was also good to share the night in San Francisco with my good friends in GOD FORBID, SWORN ENEMY, and SOILENT GREEN!! They all definitely helped me with the moral support!!! And for all you SHAD DVD owners... our good friend 'Sweetdick' Willie Gee was also teching for ANTHRAX, and I always love giving him shit!!!! CRAP!!!! CRAP!!! (For those of you who don't know, go out and pick up a copy of our DVD 'The Art of Touring' on Century Media!!)

"So then we hopped on the bus… Jeez I really didn't think I was gonna be back in a bus THIS SOON!!!! And were off to Los Angeles. All of us had signings at NAMM on Saturday, I got to the gig around 5, checked over the kit, and was ready to go. I was a LOT more relaxed for this show considering we had already gotten one out of the way.... but just in case... Frankie still made sure with that bottle of Crown again!!! This time the show was amazing... the little mistakes I made the night before were gone, and we totally crushed it... sold out, 3000 people... so many of my friends there to route me on... Paul Bostaph, John Tempesta, my web guy Ray, Chad Lee, Roy Mayorga, Yael, Dino, and most importantly my own bandmate Paul Romanko!!

"So it was back to NAMM the next day... EXHAUSTED!!! I think I'm still recuperating! But it was an experience I will NEVER forget!!

"Okay, so on to the SHAD... As of late, we've been putting the finishing touches on 'Fallout from the War' (full details on this record coming soon) which will be released on Century Media in the spring sometime!! It's coming out awesome, and we're pretty psyched about it. We just went down to NYC to freeze our asses off at an OUTDOOR photo shoot with Bryan Helm for this record. On top of a rooftop in JANUARY 2 blocks from the East River!!! If we look like we're freezing — we were!!

"In other news, we have begun the writing process for the next full-length album for Atlantic Records and we have almost two songs completed... slow and steady wins the race!!! Next week we head back out to L.A. for the Grammys... Should be interesting... And then two weeks after that, we'll see you guys back out on the road... Well, at least the fine folks here on the East Coast!!!"
