Christmas Metal 2010 Roundup

Another Christmas is just around the corner, which means jolly fat men in red suits scaring the bejeesus out of crying children and uncomfortable dinners with family members who don't actually like each other. Christmas isn't just caroling and spiked egg nog though, it's also another opportunity to rock out with some metal steeped in the holiday spirit. We already gave Christmas the metal treatment with a list of the top 10 most metal light shows, as well a new edition of the Rockstar Ramblings describing what aging rockers really want to get under the tree. Slipknot front man Corey Taylor also recently posted a Christmas music video here. To keep December heavy, we've also rounded up a list of the 2010 Christmas and Anti-Christmas rock and metal songs available online.

First off is the 2010 edition of the Misantrof AntiRecords "Holy Fucking AntiChristmas" compilation, which features 15 punk, instrumental, and metal tracks tearing the most commercial holiday of the year a new one. You can stream or download the songs here, and the track listing is as follows: More...

Cloudscape Issues Band Update

Sweden's Cloudscape has issued the following update about lineup changes and working on a new album:

"As some of you might have noticed it has been quite silent around Cloudscape for some time. We have updated a few minor news in order to send you all some life signs. Nonetheless as mentioned, Cloudscape is still fully alive and hungrier than ever. But, 2009 and parts of 2010 have been quite struggling years mainly because of member changes and stuff which have prevented us from 'moving on.' Roger Landin and Haynes Pherson left Cloudscape in early 2009 because of personal issues and they were shortly replaced by Fredrik Joakimsson (Drums) and Håkan Nyander (Bass). Fredrik and Håkan have filled the band with new fuel and inspiration and the songwriting for our 4th album is going really damn well and all of us are very excited about the new songsJ.

"We have a few more songs left to compose in order to have more than enough songs to the next album (New Era) but, we are quite sure we will be finished with the songwriting process during early fall. As soon as we are finished with the new songs we will start to check out the music business and contact different labels for a possible cooperation and release of 'New Era.' We will also make sure to find good booking agencies that have the right connections to organize more liveshows and tours. Nonetheless we will try to do a few more shows during 2010 so, stay tuned and keep yourself up to date in this site. The next scheduled liveshow will be in Helsingborg, Sweden at the venue called The Tivoli as special guest to FULLFORCE on July 10. We will have something very special included in our setlist as well...don’t miss this event;). More...

Cloudscape Recruits New Bass Player Hakan Nyander

Swedish metallers Cloudscape have issued the following announcement about recruiting a new bassist:

"A few weeks ago Haynes Pherson decided to leave Cloudscape. His decision is totally based on personal issues and has nothing to do with Cloudscape as a band or the bandmembers. Haynes and the members in Cloudscape are still great friends and the band respects and understand Haynes reasons for leaving and wishes him all the best for the future.

"Nonetheless Cloudscape have done a few auditions to find a good and worthy replacement to Haynes. Haynes was a great bassplayer and a great performer on stage so, it hasn't been easy to find the right guy to replace him but, recently Cloudscape did a few rehearsals with Håkan Nyander who also is the bassplayer in "Supreme Majesty" so, everything felt right and everything clicked really well with Håkan both musically and personally so, in other words Cloudscape is really happy to announce and welcome Håkan Nyander as their new and permanent bassplayer in Cloudscape.

"2009 hasn't been the greatest year for Cloudscape because of member changes and stuff but, the pieces are coming together now and Cloudscape is more hungry than ever!!. They are aiming to have a new album ready for release in 2010."

Cloudscape Unveils "Global Drama" Artwork

Swedish melodic metallers CLOUDSCAPE have issued the following update:

"It's been a long wait for the announcement of release dates and info regarding the third CLOUDSCAPE album entitled 'Global Drama'. The original plan was to release the album during spring 2008, but, as you already know those plans took a different direction so, right here right now we can reveal that 'Global Drama' will be released during August/September 2008 but, you have to wait a very few more days to get the exact release dates and info and sneak peek(s). As soon as CLOUDSCAPE's management gives the green light, all info will be announced and this will only take a few more days. But, until then you can watch the fantastic album cover made by Mattias Norén."

12 songs were recorded for "Global Drama", which will be "the most varied and interesting album by CLOUDSCAPE so far," according to the band. "It contains a few really hard and raw metal songs and there will also be a few more atmospheric and dynamic songs progressively spiced."
