Naer Mataron Recruits Female Vocalist

Greek black metal act Naer Mataron has issued the following announcement about recruiting a female vocalist for the new album the band is currently recording:

"Supposedly were we ever asked whether we'd use female vocals in Naer Mataron, the response would be obviously 'No!' Dead sure! But what if we could somehow reverse the question, using the magic of language to give form to another meaning with the use of the same words? What if
we could ask 'Who would be the singer that can give her voice to a brutal black metal act such as ourselves?' Who could be the one to raise her voice, claiming to invoke Thanatos - the Death himself?

"Then, a mysterious, dressed in black, slim figure comes to mind, along with a name that has strongly marked the realms of music for the last 4 decades, either fronting for The Swans or her personal band... Jarboe!

"So here we are, ripping the fruits of a friendship that was born between us and this greatly respected lady, during the 'Mother of Changes' Tour, back in the June of 2009. You will hear her voice in the title track of our upcoming album '???O ? T?????S' (translated 'Long Live Death')!

"You will hear her and chill with fright for the impending Death that her invocation shall unleash..." More...

Greece's Naer Mataron has issued the following update from the studio about bass recording for the band's new album:

"11 in the morning and we started to prepare the recording of the bass, we fixed a great sound and we begin to record immediately. I paid a lot of attention on the lines which the instrument will follow. I wanted to give exactly the meaning of existence of my bass.

Naer Mataron Posts New Recording Update

Greek black metal act Naer Mataron has issued the following update about recording guitars for the band's upcoming album:

"Thursday was the last day for guitars. All leads are done, a few themes, fills and solos here and there, not just for the sake of it, but to serve each song's atmosphere. I always believed that the most difficult thing is keeping things simple, for simplicity in music is in itself essential. Just like the Doric order of architecture, a simple column with minimal designs, but radiating such strength in it's simplicity. Easy to understand, yet hard to achieve.

"Another challenge has come to an end and I am full filled with a feeling of satisfaction and conquest. Yet, much more lay ahead to conquer in the future... World without end!"

Naer Mataron Checks In From The Studio

Greek black metallers Naer Mataron have checked in with the following update from the band's time in the recording studio:

"Guitar day no. 2 is at the end! Eight tracks down, one to go for the rhythm guitars, and the result sounds massive, like a war machine sweeping mankind off the face of the earth! I like to keep things simple: Jackson RR1 (ultimate shredding axe), Diesel amp + rare custom Diesel cabinet (with two extra 15" to handle more bass) and one mic to capture the mayhem! A bit of warming up and then unleash all Hell! Woo hoo, that's a lot of shredding in two days, but never mind that tired wrist, this is the most insane stuff you've ever heard from Naer Mataron. No shit.

"Next day will mainly be lead guitar day, so we're going to use our Gibson V to get the more round edge of this classic piece. Probably combine the tube amp with some preamp to get a more flexible sound for the leads, but basically that's it - add the emotion and our ravaging energy and everything is set.

"The chemistry between us in this album is huge and this is something you can hear in the studio. This album already sounds like Hell itself. Stay tuned for there is much more to come."

"Studio report part 2: drums recording and hell unleashing! At least the most working days ever, these last 2 days were really hard but in the same time interesting and funny. New studio with new people (great people) involved into that make me happy!

"First day was fuckin' awesome, until now I've never worked in this way but I'm sure this will be another great point on my curriculum as drummer and man! Indra and Kaiadas always stayed closet to me to give me good suggestions and moral support during the recordings and leading me to reach the point that we're looking for: the massacre!

"I'm really sure that with this new album we'll blast the end of mankind, drums sound like a merciless panzer riding the hills, this album I'm sure wiull be an absolute masterpiece of brutality! Stay tuned for more info."
