Seattle's In Memorium has issued the following update about their last show before going on a hiatus:
"Greetings all!! The end of summer is closing in, & October is just around the corner. So to usher in the fall season we will be playing @ the Rendezvous/Jewelbox Theater on Saturday Oct. 3rd here in Seattle with Velnias & Alda. It WILL will be our last show for quite a few months as we are going to be on a brief hiatus, all for different reasons.
"We have accomplished alot in the past 2 years since S. Vidano joined the band. Finishing up the writing process & the actual recording of ‘Lost to Antiquity’ was completed last year. We've played a number of shows since Vidano joined as well. Sharing the stage with Inquisition,Teratism,Scorched-Earth,Ceremonial Castings,Agalloch,Greyceon,Horna,Sol Negro,Tormentium,Book Of Black Earth,Nekro Morphosis & Black Breath has made us stronger in the live situation, being in the company of such powerful talents. And now the time has come to take a break to let our bodies & minds heal for a few months. One of us is starting a new position @ his job, another is having some serious surgery that will keep him laid up for awhile. Another is undergoing psychological evaluation, & one will be enduring physical therapy. This is what happens when you grow up being in an extreme metal band & thrashing yourself for 13 years!
"Anyway, the Show is 21+, starts @ 10pm & it is an extremely tiny space, so please come out & enjoy the harvest."
Six years since recording the critically hailed "From Misery...Comes Darkness" debut full-length, Seattles' own dark death-metal machine In Memorium entered Two Sticks Audio on September 11th, 2008 to begin recording their newest full-length opus, "Lost to Antiquity," with producer Don Gunn at the helm. As of November 22nd, 2008, all tracks have been completed, with the mixing process to begin this month.
"Lost to Antiquity" will feature seven songs of deadly, razor-sharp blackened death metal, covering a wide spectrum of styles within the boundaries of extreme metal whilst retaining the signature In Memorium sound that was established on 1999's "An Ancient Word" MCD/EP and expanded upon on 2003's "From Misery...Comes Darkness" CD. Song titles include "One Above All," "Beneath the Endless Ocean," "O' Hail Glorious Death," "Discipline," "The Awakening," "Erosion," and "In Memorium." The artwork and layout is completed and was realised by local underground artist Rouman Kirinkov.
"The early mixes have been very promising," says vocalist Nihilist, "and we look forward to completing this eternally damned and delayed release, for a tentative April 2009 release on Moribund Cult."
Metalrulez Productions has announed two new releases due this fall. Their announcement follows:
"We are proud to annouce that in Autumn we will release Stahlmantel - "Satan Snuff Machine".
Stahlmantel is a project created by Bartsch (also in Bethlehem). His newest creation is a combination of dark electronic sounds with aggresive black metal vocals of Nihilist (also in Abazagorath, In Memorium, Lord Gore etc) and twisted riffs by Olaf Eckhardt (also in Bethlehem). No fucking remorse! Really sick, twisted, suicidal music!
"In Autumn we will also release a newest Inseminator album. No suprises here, only pure oldschool thrash/black/death metal. Prepare yourself for total destruction!"
Seattle, Washngton-based black/thrash metal band IN MEMORIUM are currently seeking a keyboardist. More information is available on the band's MySpace page.
IN MEMORIUM's debut recording, "From Misery... Comes Darkness", was originally released independently in 2003 before was reissued last year via Moribund Records. The CD was recorded at Trillium Lane Studios under the watchful eye of engineer Curran Murphy (former NEVERMORE/ANNIHILATOR guitarist) and producer Todd Hooper.
