Ex-The Haunted Singer Rants Against Music Industry

Former The Haunted frontman Peter Dolving has posted a lengthy rant on facebook sharing his views on the metal music industry, slamming a few record labels, label owners and A&R product managers (including Century Media's Leif Jensen), and Nuclear Blast.

Some excerpts:

"What I have come to see is that; 'The music business”'– one that could really be an amazing thing, with potential for true positive influence in society, is a mess..... .... instead – I found disgust, unwillingness and ignorance. Narcissists, and even psychopaths in far too many positions of power. People who don´t HAVE abstract conceptual understanding, and the necessary skill sets to act in way that is good for the companies they run or work for."

"After 10 years, I accepted. Leif Jensen is a fat bitter German with a slowly increasing liver and kidney disease, just like so many of his particular ilk.

"At The Gates Tompa is up for the job, he´s smart and well-phrased. But he really doesn´t stand for anything. He´s the epitiome of all the German metal labels love; a harmless white middle class academic, with a shitty self image, great education and great taste in music."

Dew-Scented Streaming "Affect Gravity"

German thrash staples Dew-Scented will release tenth album, “Intermination,” on June 30th in North America via Prosthetic Records. Featuring vicious artwork by Gustavo Sazes, the album consists of 13 evolving and twisting tracks, with a new song coming online today. Check out "Affect Gravity" below.

Vocalist Leif Jensen says, "'Affect Gravity' is probably a bit of an unusual track for Dew-Scented and not only because of the talkbox at the beginning. It’s got quite some melodic riffing and a very dark twist, but it’s always dynamic and heavy. It turned out to be one of my personal faves on the album and I look forward to playing it live too!”

Drummer Koen Herfst added, “I tried to really emphasize the aggressiveness of the song by playing pretty much straightforward and really loud in the parts that ask for it. I love the way the toms turned out in the mix, which makes the parts that lead into the verses really heavy. Halfway through the song I do a groove inspired by Derek Roddy, which is basically a blast-beat on my second snare combined with a back beat on my main snare. After that I do a really heavy and basic groove which breaks things open in the guitar solo.”

The album’s complete track listing is as follows:

1. Declaration Of Intent (1:00)
2. On A Collision Course (3:49) (stream)
3. Scars Of Creation (3:46)
4. Affect Gravity (3:56)
5. Means To An End (4:41)
6. Ode To Extinction (4:05)
7. Demon Seed (3:48)
8. Power Surge (3:53)
9. Ruptured Perpetually (3:35)

Dew-Scented Working On Album, Announces Tour Dates

2013 was an eventful year for Dew-Scented, as the band released the special anniversary compilation “Insurgent,” toured Europe with Testament in April, played several festival events and then finished off by touring Europe again with Death Angel. Now the band is working on an upcoming album, checking in with the following update:

“2014 is scheduled to be a quieter year, since we are focusing on writing the follow-up album to 2012’s 'Icarus' release. We have gathered about eight really strong songs so far and are currently working on a couple more.

"The material is as relentless as you would expect it from Dew-Scented, but also shows different new elements in the mix, since everyone (Marvin, Rory, Joost and Koen) is bringing in ideas and writing contributions this time.

"As things look right now, we should be ready to start recordings around summer and are aiming at an early 2015 release date for the album. More news about that soon…

"In the meantime, Dew-Scented will obviously also be playing some selected live-dates throughout 2014: First off, we are heading to Japan together with our Metal Blade labelmates The Black Dahlia Murder and Fleshgod Apocalypse in April. This is the third time for us to visit Japan and a first since 2005’s Extreme The Dojo dates with High On Fire and Misery Signals. We truly look forward to meeting our faithful thrash brothers and sisters over there soon. It’s been too long! See a trailer clip by TBDM below. More...

Dew-Scented Streaming New Single

Today Dew-Scented has post the second single taken off new album "Icarus." Premiered by Rock Hard magazine Germany, click here to check out "Thrown To The Lions." Dew-Scented vocalist Leif Jensen comments:

“TTTL is among my personal fave-tracks on ‘Icarus’ and one that we all knew right away would become a good addition for our new live-set! This song is viciously straight-forward and comes with some pretty wicked guitar riffing. Lyrically the edge was to portray the truly barbaric bloodlust in ancient times at gladiator fights and the brutality of the so-called ‘damnatio ad bestias’. That’s some of the most extreme punishment in history, especially since it was turned into such a public celebration ritual! It’s definitely a gruesome topic that effortlessly supports the heaviness of the song…and the subliminal tortured screams on the second lead-guitar part are quite intense too!”

"Icarus" will be released as a limited first edition digipak including 3 bonus tracks as well as on vinyl (black and limited coloured versions) on July, 27th/30th via Metal Blade Records in Europe. The track listing is as follows: More...

Dew-Scented Confirmed For Summer Breeze

This year's Summer Breeze festival will be taking place from August 16th - 18th, with full details available at the festival's website here. The organizers of Summer Breeze have now issued the following announcement about confirming new bands:

"Since the release of their amazing breakthrough album 'Inwards', Dew-Scented have been at the forefront of European thrash metal. Since then, the cool bunch led by frontman Leif Jensen have been producing fantastic albums full of unstoppable riff power and overwhelming intensity at nicely regular intervals, cementing the band's excellent reputation time and again. In 2012, Dew-Scented aim at kick-starting their career with an entirely new line-up – with the exception of band boss Leif – and the fantastic new album 'Icarus', and are gearing up to shatter the Summer Breeze Open Air into small pieces. We are stoked to welcome the indestructible machine called Dew-Scented at our festival once more. Get thrashed!

"When Agrypnie played the Summer Breeze festival in 2008 for the first and only time so far, they were booked as consolation for all those who were mourning the recent disbanding of Nocte Obducta. Four years, one studio album and one EP later, the Hessians have made a career for themselves, having now reached the same level as the aforementioned group. Their new studio album is still being recorded as we speak, but their last EP 'Asche' was already an announcement for big things to come in the realm of post black metal. Expressive, multi-faceted, melancholic, dynamic – all these attributes fit Agrypnie like a glove and are underlined by the fact that their songs don't ever become predictable or interchangable. One of the most exciting bands our scene has to offer nowadays."

The Summer Breeze 2012 bill now looks like: More...

Dan Swanö To Guest On New Dew Scented Album

After previously announcing Sacrifice's Rob Urbinati as a guest vocalist to appear on the new album "Icarus," Dew Scented has now issued the following update about another guest appearance:

"Introducing third of three special guest-musician appearances on 'Icarus!' Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity / Bloodbath) – Guest vocals on 'Reawakening.' Dan has been a longterm buddy and true inspiration for Dew-Scented and it’s almost like a closing circle to have him involved with 'Icarus.'

"Dan and Leif first met him on the debut Edge Of Sanity tour with Assorted Heap in 1992 and then Dew-Scented toured with Edge Of Sanity in 1996, where funnily enough Marvin also already appeared as the band’s lead guitarist. Consequently, Dan went on to help Dew-Scented by mixing 1998’s 'Innoscent' album and Leif has ever since always wanted to do vocal or production work with Dan on some level again. Having Dan do his trademark deep grunts as duet vocals with Leif on the song 'Reawakening' is a big honour and personal satisfaction for us."

Dan Swanö comments: "After touring with them, mixing with them, it was about goddamned time that I also sang a nice tune with them. The interplay between mine and Leif’s vocals worked out perfectly. Like a duet between Satan and the Devil ;)" More...

Dew-Scented Announces Guest Musician For New Album

Dew-Scented has issued the following announcement about a guest musician on the band's upcoming "Icarus" album:

"We're introducing the first of three special guest-musician appearances on 'Icarus!' First one is Rob Urbinati (Sacrifice) – Guest vocals on 'Gleaming Like Silver.'

"Sacrifice is one of the best and most underrated Thrash Metal bands ever and a big influence on Leif for his vocal-work with Dew-Scented. From their debut masterpiece 'Torment In Fire' (1985) to their amazing comeback album 'The Ones I Condemn' (2009), these guys have always delivered trendless, classy Thrash Metal with amazing riffing and tasty songwriting.

"Dew-Scented had covered Sacrifice’s 'Apocalypse Inside' song on 1999’s Ill-Natured album and stayed in casual contact with Rob and Sacrifice ever since. It’s awesome to have Rob now do guest vocals for 'Gleaming Like Silver' in a duet with Leif!"

Rob Urbinati comments: "Sacrifice have been honoured by Dew-Scented in the past with a cover song, now I am honoured to be included on the track ‘Gleaming Like Silver.'"

The "Icarus" release dates are as follows:

July 27th, 2012 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland (via Metal Blade Records)
July 30th, 2012 in the rest of Europe (via Metal Blade Records)
July 31st, 2012 in North America (via Prosthetic Records) More...
