Ensiferum Bassist Checks In From Amon Amarth Tour

Ensiferum bassist Sami Hinkka has checked in with this latest road report:

"Damn I'm angry (with) myself, I was sleeping while we drove to San Francisco and I missed Alcatraz prison.

"We cant get our travel guitars to stay in tune. Damn. We change strings tomorrow and hopefully that will do the trick.

"Today's stage was very small, and we had to put drums behind me so I didn't have room to move at all. Gig was awesome! Special thanks to front row singers! Hottest show so far and of course there is no shower.

"During our gig it started to rain. C'mon! Rain in California?" More...

Onheil Confirmed For Stonehenge Festival

Onheil has been confirmed to play the highly acclaimed open air festival Stonehenge in the Netherlands. Other bands that will be attending are Austrian black/death metallers Belphegor, Italian Thrashers Sadist and German Melodic Death Metallers Burden Of Grief. This will be the only live show Onheil is going to do the coming months. At the Stonehengefestival a recordlabel/concertpromoter-only promo CD will be on sale, especially for the die-hard fans who can't wait for the next album to be recorded later this year. This will be a one-time only sale, which means the promo CD won't be available anywhere else.

The promo CD, called "Razor," features four totally new songs and a re-recorded version of "As Hope Dies," Onheil's 2007 single and videoclip. According to singer/guitarist Amok: "The new material will probably surprise a lot of people as it's quite different from our older stuff. Diversity is what we are aiming for with our next album. The songs are faster, more furious and more agressive than even before. Yet we have mixed this with more melodies and slower parts. Also the fact that we now have 2 lead vocalists and 3 guitarists gives us more possibilities to create something original."

Please feel free to publish this information on your website, in your magazine or in any other media. A pressphoto and the promocd cover can be found on our mediapage( http://www.onheil.nl/media/ ).

You can check out the titletrack of "Razor" on the Onheil MySpace and watch their video for "As Hope Dies" below: More...

Belphegor Post "Bondage Goat Zombie" Video Online

"Bondage Goat Zombie", the new video from Austrian extreme metallers BELPHEGOR, can be viewed here. The clip was shot with acclaimed Austrian director Florian Werner.

Commented BELPHEGOR's Helmuth: "The video to 'Bondage Goat Zombie' delivers a four-minute sound wall of total destruction and melodic riff explosions. The title track hymn relates to the BELPHEGOR trademark of Satanism, bondage domination sadism and masochism and the devil's pact. Veneratio Diaboli - Die Toten Reiten schnell (The Dead Ride Fast). The track 'Bondage Goat Zombie' is distinguished in English, German and Latin, and contains some of the most aggressive vocal work I've ever unleashed. BELPHEGOR will continue to keep the fucking devil and demonic spirit in metal music alive, unleash more energy, and give the die-hard brothers and sisters ultimate hell."

The song "Bondage Goat Zombie" is available for streaming on the BELPHEGOR MySpace page. More...

"We've been doing a lot of pre-production for the coming fourth album during last few weeks, and the stuff is starting to kick some serious ass and ear! The actual album recording session will begin next Sunday, at Easter Sunday, what could be more evil metal date to start the studio sessions! It seems that OG will be returning to more melodic approach on this album, back to the glory days, hehe. But no worries, the stuff will still be as heavy as a really heavy thing!" More...

Belphegor Issue Recording Update

Austrian black metallers BELPHEGOR check in with the following message from frontman Helmuth:

"Brachial as fukk demons. I entered the studio last Tuesday, and since that day we (have been) working on the new Werk with producer Andy Classen. Listen, the recording process so far has been absolutely amazing, I'm very proud of the result and everyone knows what to expect from Belphegor.

The hyperblasting drums, Serpenths tight bass and the four rhythm guitars have been finished already in the first session. So what can I say, this 9 soundcollages will be once again a proof of the most extreme metal musicals which I've created till yet.

My whole motivation and energy is high on blood and boils over.

Again I tried a few new song structures/ arrangements, try hard to reach the next level in terms of sound, musicianship and intensity. In this session all the overdubs/ melodies will be finished and the first leads and vocals are recorded.

I'm totally blown away by the evil atmosphere, the yet untitled death monster slowly gets a grim face. Even some choirs/ effects, acoustic guitars and sick samples will be added here and there... be prepared!

Belphegor's new album is scheduled for a European release on April 11th, US on April 15th, via Nuclear Blast Records.
