Hani Al-Abbadi from the Jordanian dark oriental metal act Bilocate is going to share a recipe in the upcoming book "For Those About To Cook Pure Metal" by Bruce Moore. The following press release was issued about the book:
"For Those About To Cook Pure Metal is a collection of recipes, anecdotes and pictures from metal musicians from around the world. With contributions from numerous musical genres and countries, this is truly a multi-ethnic collector’s cookbook. Readers will be presented with recipes ranging from appetizers to full course meals and desserts.
"Pure Metal is more than a cookbook: it is also a fan collectible as it includes short informative biographies, high quality pictures of the artists (mostly in a kitchen setting)), pictures of the food and, in some cases, a quote about why the recipe or food is important to the contributor. Readers and fans will gain an insider’s view into the lifestyle and habits of the artists and bands; a sort of backstage pass or behind-the-scenes look into the lives of their favorite artists far from the stage and the studio."

Swedish death metal band EVOCATION are currently working on their new album. The band has finished the recordings a few weeks ago. Guitarist Marko comments about the recordings shortly before Thomas did his vocals:
“Everything was progressing just as we planned! For the drums we had some amazing help this time – Roberto Laghi (Producer for In Flames etc.). And the result - well to be honest I haven’t ever heard such an amazing drum sound… Prepare to be blown away… Same goes for the guitars and the bass as well – the sound has progressed and is more evil than ever! Next up to get to work is Thomas (vocals). After having heard his ideas for the vocal patterns together with the songs we all feel very confident that this album will become by far our strongest achievement up to date. It might sound like a cliché but trust me and wait until the album is released…”
At the moment the band is busy mixing and mastering the material. "Apocalyptic" will be released in late October/early November. More...

Everything is progressing just as we planned, yesterday we finished laying down all guitars except for solos which we are planning to do almost last. So far we have done drums, guitars and bass. By the way, for the drums we had some amazing help this time – Roberto Laghi (Producer for In Flames etc.). And the result - well to be honest I haven’t ever heard such an amazing drum sound… Prepare to be blown away… Same goes for the guitars and the bass as well – the sound has progressed and is more evil than ever! Next up to get to work is Thomas (vocals). After having heard his ideas for the vocal patterns together with the songs we all feel very confident that this album will become by far our strongest achievement up to date.

Swedish metal band EVOCATION has issued the following update:
"Dear brothers and sisters it's January 2010 and it's cold, dark and kinda depressive. This is the perfect conditions for us to start recording our full length #3 which is also once again going to be released by the mighty Cyclone Empire in the fall this year, we're aiming at October. We have 11 new tracks and right now we are finishing up our pre-recordings and we have to say that it feels really good. The sound will be more raw but it will still be as Evocation as one can expect - plain, raw and brutal. Some of the new songs will hit your faces with such a force that you will have trouble recovering afterwards. We leave 2009 with proud faces, having such a good festival summer and last but not least the mighty European tour together with CANNIBAL CORPSE, DYING FETUS and OBSCURA. All of the bands were amazing both in private as on stage. This leaves us nothing but strength and confidence for the next album and hunger for more, more and more. So our dear friends we see you soon, and prepare yourselves for a reunion in war."
