Edguy And Sapiency Playing 70,000 Tons Of Metal

The 70,000 Tons of Metal organizers have checked in with the following update about confirming Sapiency and Edguy for the floating festival:

"While 70000TONS OF METAL, The World's Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival is steaming at full speed course West through the Mediterranean Sea, they received news from their European Scouting Party. After passing through Frankfurt am Main, where they made friends with some new hopefuls that go by the name of SAPIENCY, they continued further East to the city of Fulda to meet the EDGUY! Having a feeling that there is still more in store for them, the Scouting Party continues moving East...

"Make no mistake, 70000TONS OF METAL is not your grandma's cruise. It's also not one of the cruises that share the ship with normal cruise guests. This is an all heavy metal cruise! Can you imagine that? A whole luxury cruise ship full of metalheads? And since there is no backstage area you will have the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It's like everyone has a backstage pass!"

Primordial Comments On Paganfest Tour

Ireland's Primordial will be co-headlining the Paganfest tour 2012, which is kicking off in Oberhausen, Germany the 16th of March 2012!

Primordial singer A.A. Nemtheanga comments: "Never say never right? So we announce our participation in next March's Paganfest festival tour across Central Europe. Anyone who has read any of my various ramblings and musings over the last year or two will know my feelings about the current state of club touring and the industry in general. It's an ugly business but we are definitely ugly enough and getting uglier every year so strangely enough the stars aligned and the dates fell into place for us. Anyone who knows anything about Primordial knows how hard it has become for us to commit to lengthy touring as the years go by. The window of opportunity represents possibly the only opportunity we will have to do a longer tour for 'Redemption' across Europe so as they say…needs must and better the devil you know. Never as I say say never.

"Regardless of the fact that the general tone of this tour is a little different. It has a more pronounced mix of light and shade. We have our Icelandic brethren Solstafir taking part which I would have thought alongside ourselves should sweeten the deal for those who may feel the pagan/heathen festival tour holds nothing for them, Romanian shamans NeguraBunget also filling out the darker quotient of the tour. Heidevolk stand firm for proud old values and having taken part in Eluveitie's acoustic album personally my feeling on those guys and girls should be apparent! I support them and the cultural significance they represent. I'm not here to sound the rallying cry for a dying venture (i.e touring) or sound the death knell for Primordial club touring we are simply taking part, we have some interesting and new things planned and the tour has some light and shade, which may be difficult for some people to take but this is how it is. Of course some territories are missed and we apologize for this but this is a mixture of market forces and pragmatism and unfortunately nothing to do with us, we hope to fill in the blanks over time. Bottom line, Primordial is touring….this is the most important fact and you know what you are gonna get…blood sweat and fire so see you on the field…"

The Paganfest 2012 dates are as follows (featuring Eluveitie, Primordial, Negura Bunget, Heidevolk, and Solstafir): More...

Eluveitie Posts Update On "Helvetios"

Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie checked in with the following studio blog update on the recording of "Helvetios" from guitarist/vocalist Sime Koch:

"Finally we’ve got some time to give you updates on the rest of the recordings for “Helvetios”. Watch out for new posts during the next few days! Sime goes first:

"Originally, Chrigel was supposed to record the Mandola. But since he was busy with an abundance of other instruments, I stepped in. Which wasn’t too much of a change since I’m playing it live during some of our shows anyway.

"Both the mandola and the acoustic guitars have been recorded at the Soundfarm studio in Kriens, Switzerland. After testing plenty of microphones the perfect guitar sound was found quickly, and while Tommy went through the test recordings we were already tracking the first mandola-parts. Since the mandola is not much in the foreground on the new record this was rather painless. After that we were ready to move on with the first recordings using my favourite acoustic guitar, a Tacoma USA (R.I.P.). Besides one little exception, all songs have been recorded in standard E tuning (unlike on “Evocation I” and “Everything Remains”). Only one small interlude was played in a D-A-D-G-A-D. Everything was done within one, although very long, single day."

Eluveite Updates Studio Progress, Announces Guest

Folk metal band Eluveite checked in from the studio on the progress of the recording of the forthcoming LP "Helvetios" with the following:

"We are really happy and proud to announce we could win our desired candidate over for those parts: The brilliant scottish actor Alexander “Sandy” Morton (66). He might be known to you from some of his latest movies, such as 'Valhalla Rising' or 'London to Brighton.' With his deep, rough and orotund voice he’s just perfect for 'Helvetios.'

"Alexander ‘Sandy’ Morton in 'Valhalla Rising'

"Last Friday I conducted the recording of the spoken parts in London. Everything went well and I just can say that it was a real pleasure to work with Sandy. Besides the fact that he’s a really nice fella, he turned out to be great and professional to work with. He empathised with the characters dealt with on „Helvetios“ and he really got the spirit and experienced the lyrics.
Well, the result I just can describe as: Fucking epic shit!

"I’d like to thank Sandy again for an awesome performance here, and also thanks to everybody at Earache Voices.

"So, one more little part of our upcoming album is recorded, one more tessella is set!"
