Vanmakt Gives Studio Update

Swedish black metallers VANMAKT have issued an update on their upcoming new album:

"We have finished the guitar tracking, and even though the amp broke down after recording almost half of the tracks, we managed to get hold on another amp and record everything again, and now were finally done! So far it sounds really good, but I guess all bands say so when they are recording a new album. I can't wait until we got the final mix and master from Tore Stjerna and Necromorbus!

"Now we will commence the vocal and bass recordings, and after that were done! It would be nice to say that we have some new photos from the studio to post, but since technical stuff don't like us, Björn Lindberg's camera broke down, and even though he will get a new one from the store, it sucks. Don't trust new and shiny technical shit! But at least I hope to have some pics from the vocal and bass recording to post later on!"

More details and announcement on VANMAKT's new album, "Ad Luciferi Regnum," will be released soon.

Vanmakt Enters The Studio

Swedish black metallers VANMAKT have issued the following update:

"Yesterday we entered the EPM Studio to record our new album Ad Luciferi Regnum that will be mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna in Necromorbus Studio (WATAIN, SETHERIAL) and is to be released by Pulverised Records.

At the moment were working on getting a good drum sound and we hope to record the first drum track either this evening or tomorrow! We are in no hurry this time and it feels really good that we can record this album in our hometown with a close friend behind the 'steering wheel.' Vanmakt isn't a band that likes to rush things, we need to take the necessary time to make this album into something we can always be proud of! But of course we have a schedule and we wont be drinking beer all day long, well, not the one recording anyways! But for now we will take one-two weeks to record the drums and after that we will follow the usual structure with guitars, bass and vocals. I will keep you posted on what is happening and hopefully we will be done with everything in the end of July, after that its time for Tore to put his magic into work!"

Vanmakt On The Hunt For A New Drummer

Black metallers Vanmakt have posted the following message:

"Since we have no drummer at the moment for live purpose, we are looking for one. So, if you live in Sweden, Denmark or Norway and feels that you want to join a hard working and serious band that wants to go all the way, don't hesitate to contact us, after reading these demands. If you dont fit this demands, please dont waste our time by contacting us. Thanks!


20 Years or older (We are 21-28)
Blasting in 280Bpm is a minimum!
Own your own stuff.
Have some kind of recording that we can listen to.

We are looking for someone that wants to be either a live member in Vanmakt or a full-time member. Since we aren't rehearsing that much everyone in the band needs to learn the songs at home so that when we rehearse, everyone knows what to do and its just to put everything together. this means that it doesn't really matter where you live in these countries as long as you can and will come when it is time for either gig or studio rehearsing. This requires a person with discipline and access to either a practise kit at home or a rehearsal room for themselves.

Vanmakt isn't our daytime job, and we don't get a monthly pay-check. We are doing this because we believe in our music and not to get rich. If we wanted to get rich, we would play pop, but that's not what we are doing, so a new member also needs to have this in mind.

If you feel that you have what it takes, please send a mail to drummer@vanmakt.com.

Include some information about yourself and links to where we can listen or download tracks in which you play.

That's it! Don't hesitate to send your questions to us for more information!

PS: We will enter EPM Studio at June 5th to record our second album Ad Luciferi Regnum so it can take some time before we answer any mails, but we will respond as soon as we can!"

Eerie To Enter Studio In July

VANMAKT's Gorgoth (a.k.a. Tais) has issued the following update on his Swedish gothic/doom metal project EERIE:

"EERIE will start the recording for our debut album, 'As The World Comes To An End', in July this year. We would start sooner but Im going to record in June with another band of mine, so we decided that it would be the best to wait and start in July so that I dont have to go away in the middle of the progress."

"The album will contain eight songs, and the full playing time is at the moment 65 minutes of music. This might change since we will work more with the intros and outros of the songs in the studio as well as some parts might be longer or shorter, this will be decided when Gadd has learned all the drumparts and were starting the pre-recording of the vocals. But I promise you an album that won't be shorter than 60 minutes." More...

Eerie Announce New Album Title

VANMAKT's Gorgoth (a.k.a. Tais) has issued the following update on his Swedish gothic/doom metal project EERIE:

"After lots of discussions and e-mailing with several labels EERIE has decided to release a full-length album next year! This gloomy creation will be entitled 'As The World Comes To An End'! 6-7 songs will embrace your haunted and darkened lives, hopefully by the autumn of 2008. More info regarding the release will come when we feel that it is time to let you know. Until then, feel free to download our demo songs at our MySpace."

According to EERIE's official bio, the band "was formed by Tais in 2007, but has grown inside his mind since 2003. The love for doom and gothic/metal has always been a big part of Tais' life, and since the first time he picked up the guitar to write a song it has been melancholic tunes that have arisen. That's why he has been playing in a lot of constellations with a direction against the melancholic and melodic goth/metal."

Swedish black metal band VANMAKT has parted ways with guitarist Satygh. According to the group's mainman Gorgoth, "We won't play together with someone that we can't trust, so Satygh is no longer a part of VANMAKT!"

He continued, "Since I'm doing all the songwriting in the band, this won't have anything to do with how we sound. No gigs will be postponed or deleted. We will search for a new dedicated guitarist and we will let it take the time it takes. In the meantime, we have asked a friend to do live shows with us — until we find a new guitar player, that is."

VANMAKT's debut album, "Vredskapta Mörkersagor", features guest appearances by Jonas Renvaktar (SPAWN OF POSSESSION) on the song entitled "Open the Gates" and Hebbe from SKALD on the track "En Mardröm, En Strid, Ett Helvete".

Nidrike Adds New Guitarist

Anticipating signing a record deal eventually, Nidrike has decided to add another guitarist to the camp.

Gorgoth comments: "Since were gonna start recording our debut-album in December we wish to have a line-up that can play the most parts live in the studio so that we get that real band feeling over it all. Sure, the bass and most vocals will be added, but the basics will be live and thats important for us. BUT! This doesnt mean that Nidrike will play live-gigs, although we already have got offers regarding both European dates and a North-American tour. The thing is to be straight with you all, Liedheim wont play live since he don't like being on stage. Its hard enough to get him into a studio and rehearsing if theres anyone else but the band in the rehearsing room. So, if we ever are going to play live, we would need a live-drummer and as it looks right now, we aint gonna do that.

The band has added Aamoth also from Vanmakt to play the other guitar in the studio.

Gorgoth continues: "I'm currently writing the final tracks for the album and were rehearsing as much as we can so that we will be ready to enter a friends studio in December. I can't say how many songs there will be on the album, and I can't say any titles or so on. But what I can say is that it will be fast and chaotic! True disgusting and
fast blackmetal!! We will kick everyones as, and if you think that you have heard really good blackmetal, you're wrong, cause our album will smash everything!"

You can check out some of Nidrike's past material on their MySpace page.

Vanmakt Postpone Swedish Dates

Mainman Gorgoth of the Swedish black metal band VANMAKT has issued the following update:

"Due to that Gráal had major surgery this week and that his doctor told him to rest, we have to postpone our gigs in Västervik, Falun and Sundsvall in the end of November. We will try to re-schedule the dates to the spring of 2008, but as of right now we will not play any gigs, at least not this year. Gráal needs his rest and he will get it. But as soon as he is fit to go we will start rehearsing the new songs that we haven't recorded so that we stand ready if and when we will enter the studio for a second album."

"In other news I will record the vocals on the promo next week. Everything sounds killer, and we have finally got a sound that we like. Björn is a hell of a soundman!"
