"All the songs for what shall become Gravisphere's first release are done! Eight songs of cosmic, dreaming, feeling, dark and visionary metal! We are truly pleased with the result and still feel that we have something new and fresh to contribute to the metal scene! The lyrics focuses around the vast emptiness of space and the notion mankind sometimes have that we may not be alone, even on our own planet."

FISSION, the collaboration between BORKNAGAR/VINTERSORG frontman Andreas Hedlund (a.k.a. Vintersorg) and VINTERSORG live session drummer Benny "Hägge" Hägglund, has set "Pain Parade" as the title of its second album, due later in the year via Aphotic Records. The CD will be mixed beginning on February 1 at Ballerina Audio with Nils Johansson (VINTERSORG, NAGLFAR, TME). According to a press release, "Pain Parade" will contain "eight brilliant songs that mix the most of [what] metal has to offer."
FISSION's debut album, "Crater", was released in 2004 via Napalm Records.
According to Hedlund, FISSION's musical style can be described as "harsh and razor-sharp thrash metal, with a lot of melody and atmosphere. Some links can be made to bands like AT THE GATES — it has some of that melodism — but still has its very own identity. Vocally, the style switches between bone-chilling black-metal escapism, to soothing and calm voice-scapes, and the lethal dose of attitude in multiple parts are of course very present."
Swedish metalers Fission have signed to Aphotic Records. The album will start being recorded in late 2007. For now you can check out some of their material on their MySpace page.
