Insidious Disease Reveals New Album Artwork

Extreme metal legends have united as INSIDIOUS DISEASE will unleash the most violent death metal album to come along in years. The band consists of Dimmu Borgir’s main songwriter Silenoz, bassist Shane Embury (Napalm Death), guitarist Jardar (Old Mans Child), drummer Tony Laureano (Angelcorpse, Nile) and vocalist Marc Grewe (from German death metal band Morgoth) will release its debut album "Shadowcast" via Century Media Records on July 12th in Europe and July 27th in North America.

INSIDIOUS DISEASE is proud to unveil a brand new artwork trailer for Shadowcast offering a glimpse at the morbid visuals accompanying the release. Check out the video below:

Silenoz further explains the concept of Shadowcast, which has way more to offer than just typical death metal gore galore, “The basic idea behind Shadowcast lyrically is an attempt to describe the ‘misfits’ in this world: the misunderstood, mentally defect and depraved individuals that walk among us - rapists, serial killers, pedophiles, necrophiles and drug addicts, etc. It could be your neighbor, you just never know, it could be YOU!"

Angelcorpse Members Form Perdition Temple

Gene Palubicki of disbanded death metal band Angelcorpse has issued the following announcement about forming a new band:

"Gene here. Anyone wondering what might lie ahead for some of us after the ANGELCORPSE disbanding...? Well, from my side all the music that I've written, some of it written over 5 years ago now, will find it's home under the new moniker PERDITION TEMPLE. Musically, it is everything that has been previously intended for all forthcoming ANGELCORPSE releases. Currently label negotiations are underway for the debut release of either an E.P. or possible full length. The current lineup is myself on guitars/bass and Terry on drums. A search for an appropriately bestial vocalist has begun also.... Things ARE moving swiftly, as a logo has already been created by longtime Black/Death metal artist Christophe Moyen, which can be seen shortly on his webpage. More info will follow when an official PERDITION TEMPLE myspace page is set up."

Nachtmystium Posts New Song Online

Chicago-area psychedelic black metal group NACHTMYSTIUM has posted a new song titled "Assassins" on its MySpace page. The track comes off the band's new full-length album, "Assassins: Black Meddle Part I", which will be released on June 10 via Century Media Records in North America and June 23 through Candlelight Records in Europe.

"Worldfall", the new mini-CD from NACHTMYSTIUM, will be released as a precursor to the band's upcoming full-length, and will only be available direct from Century Media as well as iTunes.

Dimmu Borgir Drummer Sidelined With Injury

Due to a recently diagnosed injury, DIMMU BORGIR drummer Hellhammer will be unable to play drums for the band on the remaining festival dates this summer and the upcoming European tour with Amon Amarth and Hatesphere.

Hellhammer's x-ray confirmed a severe neck prolapse causing numbness in his right arm. He will be going into treatment soon and could - quite possibly - undergo corrective surgery.

Taking over drum duties for the upcoming shows will be Tony Laureano (Nile, Angelcorpse, Aurora Borealis), who played for DIMMU BORGIR during the band's North American stint on Ozzfest in 2004 and during festival performances throughout 2005.

AngelCorpse Working on Most Extreme Album to Date

The reunited ANGELCORPSE is currently hard at work on its new album, entitled "Of Lucifer and Lightning". "John Longstreth [drums] has created some hammering drums for us to work with, and Gene [Palubicki, guitar] and I are hard at work tracking guitars, bass and vocals for the album," says bassist/vocalist Pete Helmkamp. "We promise that 'Of Lucifer and Lightning' will be the most extreme ANGELCORPSE album to date. Of course this sounds cliche and what every band might say after 'reforming' after several years, but we say fuck off to all of that: ANGELCORPSE has never been like those other bands and this album will certainly show that to be true. Beware: Antichrist Vanguards advance!"

"Of Lucifer and Lightning" is scheduled for release later in the year via Osmose Productions.

ANGELCORPSE's last studio album, "The Inexorable", was released in 1999 through Osmose Productions. A CD collection, "Iron Blood and Blasphemy", featuring a number of singles, EP tracks, covers, live recordings, and the "Goats to Azazael" demo, came out in 2001.
