Werewolf Records, freshly in conspiracy with Hells Headbangers, has set February 24th as the international release date for infamous NSBM group Goatmoon's fifth album, "Stella Polaris." Werwolf Records comments:
"In many ways approximating its vibrant cover art, 'Stella Polaris' is a mysteriously alluring blast of cosmic, snow-capped majesty. Here, Goatmoon consolidates all its considerable strengths while setting forth on new, untrodden paths across the album's nine tracks.
"Verily, 'Stella Polaris' is distinctly Finnish in its poignant purity and staunch traditionalism - this is BLACK METAL, proudly, with no use for nor tolerance of muddling agents - but with its increasingly organ-led attack, BlackGoat Gravedesecrator and a new, full lineup weave a spell that explodes with both a subtle dynamism and an anthemic quality that's thoroughly addicting."

YLE News reports that an anti-racism non-governmental organization (NGO) in Tampere, Finland is urging foreigners to avoid downtown areas of the city on Friday evening (February 1). The Rasmus Network against Racism and Xenophobia says police have warned them of possible unrest surrounding a concert (poster) to be staged by four neo-Nazi bands.
The groups — DER STÜRMER (Greece), ABSURD (Germany), GOATMOON (Finland) and SATANIC WARMASTER (Finland) — are scheduled to play at a Tampere heavy metal rock club. According to the club's promoter, Toni Törrönen, the concert was sold out well in advance.
The tour is organized by the Pagan Front record label, which bills itself as "the Hammer of National Socialist Black Metal." The Greek band's website praises the Nazis, while former members of the German band are in prison for murder and neo-Nazi activities.
"Based on the information that we have received from various sources, one of which is the police, this concert is going to draw a large number of extremist right wing nationalists into the city," says Peter Kariuki, coordinator of the Rasmus Network's Tampere chapter.
