Gaahl Comments On Signing With Indie Recordings

More comments have been made on both sides of the camp regarding God Seed's recent signing to Indie Recordings. The label commented:

"Through the last years we've worked with King & Gaahl in many different bands and projects such as. Gorgoroth, Trelldom, Sahg, Audrey Horne and Wardruna. The quality of their work has always been outstanding, and we welcome this opportunity to once again work with them – this time building something new together. The as-yet-untitled God Seed album will be released late 2009. The album has been in the making for some time already, and continues the already established path of King and Gaahl in a natural, yet progressive way.

"The new material sounds great and we are truly looking forward to be a part of their new musical carrier through God Seed."

In a press statement King comments the signing and the upcoming album:

"I have high hopes for the future signing to Indie Recordings. Gaahl and I have had various negative experiences with labels in the past, but feel confident that we have made the right choice this time. Indie Recordings consists of people we have worked with in the past and they have shown 100% professionalism. They have proven to take care and bring the best out of the bands on their roster. The fact that they are a Norwegian label and not a Swedish label makes me even more optimistic for the future!!"

God Seed's studio line up is as follows:

Vocals - Gaahl
Bass - King
Drums – Frost (Satyricon, 1349)
Guitar – Ice Dale (Enslaved, I, Audrey Horne)
Guitar – Telloch (Nidingr, Umoral)

Empyrean Has Equipment Stolen At Satyricon Show

Brisbane symphonic black metal band Empyrean had some band equipment stolen at their Brisbane show on Friday night supporting Satyricon.

“Some complete fucktards decided to walk out with my basket filled with cables (Instrument, Speaker and Power cables); my amp pedal and my wireless at the gig on friday night supporting Satyricon at the Arena. This shit fucking sucks…

"Regardless, if you see a Peavey JSX Pedal on sale in Brisbane that has the washers exposed and a Shure Wireless system, send me through a message (on Myspace): it’s mine. This shit does happen folks, make sure someone is always looking after your equipment, especially in older venues”

If you have any information regarding the theft, contact the band on their MySpace at myspace.com/empyreanband.

Magenta's "Art and Accidents" To Get US Release

Described as The Human League meets Sisters of Mercy, dark eclectic band Magenta's latest album, "Art and Accidents," will finally see a North American release on April 10 via Vendlus Music.

Fronted by vocalist Vilde Lockert, MAGENTA was formed in Norway in the summer of 1995 by Anders Odden, whose experience includes stints with bands such as APOPTYGMA BERZERK and CADAVER, as well as recording for SATYRICON, live guitarist with CELTIC FROST and guesting with MINISTRY. Over the years, the band has released a series of albums and singles, as well as a video with MORTIIS, and the current lineup was completed by guitarist Daniel Hill in 2006. Hill’s arrival signalled the start of a new dynamism and creativity for the band, which has culminated in the release of “Art And Accidents” on the All This And Music Too label on February 9.

The band has steadfastly refused to be stereotyped and likes to work outside of the conventional genre definitions, using elements that include rock, pop, metal, trip hop, electro, techno, industrial, new wave, gothic, acoustic, psychedelic, trance and film music. Odden best summed it up his creation like this: “MAGENTA is my playground where I can be as diverse and melodic as I want. Not being tied to any particular genre definition means we don’t have to restrict ourselves too narrowly, and allows us all to make the kind of music we feel like making at any given time. We all have a lot of musical experience in many genres, and as individuals we work with amazingly diverse types of artists, both in the studio and live, and each of us brings something a bit unique to the mix.”

“Art and Accidents” includes guest appearances by GOTHMINISTER, Jonas Groth and Stu Manx from GLUECIFER, and Angel and Geir from APOPTYGMA BERZERK, and is complemented by the release of two specially commissioned videos by Sandra Jensen for the track “Darkest Dream.”

Here is the “Art And Accidents” track listing: More...
