Katatonia Confirmed For Swedish Minus 30 Festival

Katatonia has issued the following announcement about making an appearance at Sweden's Minus 30 Festival:

"We’re aware of the fact that Sweden doesn’t seem to get a hell lot of Katatonia on the live front and it’s been bloody ages ago we were up in the north (Umeå - 15 years ago, Sundsvall - 5 years ago), so now the time has come to head even farther north and visit another city for the first time at the festival Minus 30 Grader @ Kulturenshus, Luleå on March 14th."

Bloodbath Return to The Studio

Guitarist Anders "Blakkheim" Nyström of the Swedish death metal "supergroup" BLOODBATH has issued the following update:

"BLOODBATH just spent the last week at Park Studio in Stockholm where Axe [drummer Martin 'Axe' Axenrot] put down an (un)healthy doze of all the basic ingredients and more to get this death metal monster meal cooking in hell's oven. We're talking classic old-school skin-pounding, furious blast beats, double-bass drums, all kinds of tempos and a heavy load of killer fills, yeah you name it… This time it turned out to be 11 brand new songs on the menu for the band's still-untitled third album."

"So what direction does the material take this time? Well, it's definately taking off where we left with 'Unblessing The Purity'. The material represents nothing but hateful brutality, so there's surely a lot of speed countered with heavy groove. Riff-wise, we're playing a lot with dissonant harmonies for that feverish possessed feeling, but we also brought back the whole melodic yet haunting 'bee-swarming' theme concept from the past albums to represent the classic sound, so there's definately gonna be a good deal of variety on here which we hope to pack together in the most crushing production yet."
