Earache Thrash Pack Kicks Rock Band Players' Asses

Earache Records has issued the following statement on their recently released "Earache Thrash Pack" for the game "Rock Band:"

"It was warned that the newly-released EARACHE Thrash Pack for ROCK BAND would be the hardest tracks that the game had to offer and that was no lie.

"The ROCK BAND rockers community (http://www.rockband.com/rockers_home)has been absolutely THRASHED and SHREDDED to the bone in their many attempts to play the AT THE GATES classic, "Blinded By Fear" and THE HAUNTED's "D.O.A." Judging by the comments on the official ROCK BAND forums, however, out of all of the songs in the pack, EVILE's "Thrasher" seems to have given players their greatest challenge yet. Here's what some of the most hardcore ROCK BAND players in the world have to say about it:

"This satisfies my extreme metal wants for a long, long, long time. That time will be spent putting ointment on my blistered fingers due to Thrasher, no doubt." - Chief Stubbs

"Got my butt kicked in solo 2 of Thrasher." - JoshuaNeff

"Thrasher: DEAR FREAKING LORD! This song is so frikkin insane it's not even funny...When I saw the first solo I nearly crapped my pants." - Xerosnake90

"Thrasher's quick changes between beats are seriously challenging" - Contrapulator

At The Gates Guitarist Speaks On Roots Of Reunion

Anthony Morgan at Lucem Fero caught up with AT THE GATES guitarist Anders Björler to discuss the band's reunion. The following is an excerpt from the interview, conducted in November 2007:

Q: Could you give us an introduction to the At The Gates reunion, and how that eventually materialised?

Anders: "If the reunion was ever to materialise, I felt that we would need to plan ahead. I got in touch with the other guys during May this year, and asked if they'd be interested in a possible reunion. They were, and we just took it from there."

Q: Personally, what were your own reasons for wanting to pursue a reunion?

Anders: "I just want closure. The split was bad in some respects, and we didn't talk to each other for years. I just want to go back, and make things right."

Q: You said that it feels like getting closure, so have you ever held any regrets over how At The Gates ended?

Anders: "I have no real regrets concerning the decision, although I have regrets in terms of the way it happened. I was fed up with the touring, and didn't want to record another album. Somehow, Slaughter Of The Soul felt like a good ending to our career."

Q: In your statement announcing the reunion, you said "it felt like the timing was right for once”. Were there times in the past when the possibility of reunion shows were discussed by the members? For how many years has the idea been discussed?

Anders: "I think we started discussing the possibility of reunion shows during 2002, but nothing ever happened then. Adrian was drumming for CRADLE OF FILTH at the time, whereas me and Jonas had commitments with The Haunted. Tomas had THE GREAT DECEIVER, LOCK UP, DISFEAR, SKITSYSTEM, etc... so it was very hard to arrange anything back then. As I said earlier, planning ahead is important. We let the guys in our other respective groups know what we're planning to do."

Q: How did everything fall into place for the reunion to be possible?

Anders: "Firstly, the reunion fits perfectly in line with the schedule we have for The Haunted. We will probably record our new album during April 2008, and that'll leave the summer relatively free. Me and Jonas didn't want the At The Gates reunion to affect The Haunted, so 2008 was an ideal time schedule the live shows. Adrian is no longer a member of Cradle of Filth, so he's not committed to extensive touring. All in all, 2008 turned out to be a great year."

Slayer Confirmed For Gods Of Metal Festival

Los Angeles thrash metal legends SLAYER have been confirmed for the Gods of Metal festival, set to take place June 27-29, 2008 in Bologna, Italy. The festival billing is now shaping up as follows:

Friday, June 27:

IRON MAIDEN

SLAYER
CARCASS
MESHUGGAH
TESTAMENT
AT THE GATES

Sunday, June 29:

MORBID ANGEL
ENSLAVED

National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences members have nominated SLAYER for the band's third Grammy Award. The SLAYER track, "The Final Six", from the group's 2007 limited-edition "Christ Illusion", was nominated in the category of "Best Metal Performance."

"The Final Six", written by Tom Araya and guitarist Jeff Hanneman and produced by Josh Abraham, is a chilling look at an hypothesized end of the world. The song made its debut last July as the "Single of the Week" on MySpace where it has since accumulated some 750,000 plays, an astounding number for a song that received no commercial airplay.

"When I first got the word, I thought someone was playing a joke," mused Araya. "But obviously, we've made an impression on the industry. The people at the upper levels have taken notice of what we've done, and that's awesome."

SLAYER's two previous Grammy nominations were for 2002's "Disciple" from the album "God Hates Us All", and last year's "Eyes of the Insane", for which they took home the Grammy Award.

DIMMU BORGIR

KATAKLYSM will perform at the Rebel Radio "Birthday Bash" alongside TROUBLE on January 27 at The House of Blues in Chicago, Illinois. More bands will be announced soon.

KATAKLYSM has recruited producer Jason Suecof (CHIMAIRA, TRIVIUM, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER) to mix the band's new album beginning in early February. "Prevail" will feature several guest appearances to be announced at a later date. The album is scheduled for a late spring/early summer release via Nuclear Blast Records.

KATAKLYSM recently decided to "immortalize" the character that was featured on the cover of their most recent album, "In the Arms of Devastation", and have him re-appear as the main character — dubbed "The Heartbeast" — on their next offering, "Prevail".

Commented vocalist Maurizio Iacono: "We had so [much] killer feedback on the artwork but especially on the character that we decided to keep him as the band's fifth band member... kinda like IRON MAIDEN did with 'Eddie.' We have the perfect concept for the next album art... it will be bad-ass!"
