Moonsorrow Finishes Work On Album

MOONSORROW keyboardist Henri Sorvali has posted the following studio update at the band's official website:

Friday 11.8

'Näin kaikki päättyy, näen sen nyt
Tämä sivu on viimeinen
Näin kaikki päättyy, tyhjään ja unohdukseen
Eikä kukaan tänne palaa'

"Yes, we did it. It´s ready. It´s finished. It´s ending. And it´s fucking good....both that this session is actually coming to it´s end, and most of all, The Album. I´m not going to reveal anything about the music, track numbers nor any names. You´ll hear them later. Isn´t that nice? But prepare for something which I´d call as 'massive'. It´s not going to be an easy listening experience.

We still have some additional techincal stuff to do: burn some cd´s for auditioning, some extra files for me to mess around with later at my own studio before mastering, and of course burn the backup- DVD´s of the whole project. Our plane is taking off after four hours so we´re not (luckily) running out of time.

This diary will expire after today´s babbling. Hope you had as much fun reading it as I hated to write it. ;)"

Second Thryfing Vocalist At Heathen Crusdade

The organizers of the Heathen Crusade Metalfest and the members of THYRFING are happy to announce that Toni Kocmut will be performing several songs with THYRFING during their set at the Heathen Crusade. For those of you who do not recognize the name, Toni performs the “clean” vocals on THYRFING’S releases. What makes this performance special is that this will be the first time that Toni has EVER performed live with THYRFING.

Patrik Lindgren of THYRFING had the following to say regarding Toni’s upcoming performance: "Of course we are very excited and thrilled about the fact that Toni is about to perform with us for the first time. We have been working with him on the albums for six years now, and have known him even longer than that, so of course the idea has been up for discussion, but now the plans are finally being realized. This addition to the line-up is making this gig even more unique than it already is, and I hope that the audience will appreciate this exclusive feature."

The Heathen Crusade Metalfest is set to take place on Saturday, January 21, 2006, at the Star Central in Columbia Heights, Minnesota. Also scheduled to appear are Finland's MOONSORROW, Ireland's PRIMORDIAL, THE CHASM, NOVEMBERS DOOM, TODESBONDEN, TYPHUS, DUMAH, AUTUMN ETERNAL and ENSHRINED.

Tickets for this ALL AGES show are on sale now ($25 in advance, $30 day of show). Additional information (schedule, hotels, vendors, band info, venue location, etc…) is available at the Heathen Crusade Official Website.

Shadow Cut Cancell Studio Session

SHADOW CUT, the Helsinki, Finland-based black/death metal band featuring drummer Repe F.W. Misanthrope (IMPALED NAZARENE) and bassist Mitja Harvilahti (MOONSORROW), have cancelled their studio recording session originally scheduled for March. "The reason is mainly their lack of time for practising and getting things ready in time," reads a press release from the group's record label, Firebox Records. "Also the band has thrown away half of the songs that were supposed to be on the second album as they weren't strong enough. The band wants to make sure that the second album will be better than the debut, so they will take all the time they need..."

SHADOW CUT released their debut album, "Pictures of Death", earlier in the year via Firebox. The CD was produced by Henri Sorvali (a.k.a. Trollhorn, FINNTROLL).
