Century Media Co-Owner Passes Away

Oliver Withöft, co-owner of independent record label Century Media, passed away on January 20th, 2014 after falling ill several months ago. He was 49. Robert Kampf, Century Media founder, comments:

"I have lost my best friend of 32 years and my business partner of 24. Although the unthinkable already happened three days ago, I am still in a state of utter shock. Oliver Withöft leaves a space that cannot be filled for all who held him dear. He was a tremendous father, husband, son and friend and will be terribly missed. I will always treasure him in my heart as the witty, brilliant and altogether great person he was. Farewell Oliver, see you on the other side and in our next life."

The following press release was also issued by Century Media:

"Born in Dortmund, Germany in 1964, Withöft studied linguistics, business and history in both Germany and the UK. Robert Kampf started Century Media Records 25 years ago simply to create a suitable label home for his own band, Despair. He was looking for a trustworthy and strong partner to lead the company with and found this person in his best friend and fellow musician Oliver Withöft, who joined the company eighteen months later, sharing the same love and passion for music, and metal in particular. Since that very day, these two friends developed one of the most important independent record labels on the planet. Today the company has around 100 people on payroll in Dortmund, London, Los Angeles, Berlin, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Melbourne and the Netherlands.

"A lot of musical careers were developed over the years: Lacuna Coil, Shadows Fall, Suicide Silence, In This Moment, Otherwise, Iced Earth, Die Broilers, Arch Enemy and Heaven Shall Burn are just a few of them. Century Media became a brand name recognized across the world. Oliver Withöft was always the strategic, legal and financial mind behind the organization. He was not only a strong fighter for the company, but also a very intelligent and forward-thinking leader. When the music industry drastically changed in the '90s, he was the first to think about new ways to adapt to the needs and challenges of the rapidly-changing market. We have lost a great man with an amazing sense of humor, a warrior, and an overall very human being. Oliver leaves behind a wife, Judith, and their three daughters." More...

Obscene Extreme Comments On World Tour

This year marks 15 years of Obscene Extreme and to celebrate the occasion the organizers of the festival decided to go all out in extreme style by hosting an additional three festivals in three additional continents.

Over the last few months Obscene Extreme has appeared in Mexico City - Mexico, Jakarta - Indonesia, and Melbourne - Australia. There has been much success but also some failures and after some time at home to reflect on the adventure the man behind the whole idea, Curby, has spoken about the experience on the run up to the final Obscene Extreme Festival in Czech Republic this July:

"Hello freaks!!! This is Curby/obscene... I believe that you our loyal OEF fans have followed us on our tour so you probably know what happened but for those who haven't I would like to sum up our first ever OEF World tour. When I was pondering over our plans for the World tour I was really full of enthusiasm (and actually I still am). I hoped for something new but our first world volume was a really tough game, not only financially but also emotionally. It's very difficult to understand how big differences are between Europe, Mexico and Indonesia... I knew it would be different, but so much? What can you do if you pay everything in advance as in Mexico and people don't work at all? Not much... when you read my statements for every continent, you`ll understand me... More...

Report

Morbid Angel Returns to San Antonio

If Satan needed a house band in Hell, he could certainly call on Morbid Angel. Thanks to his guitar acrobatics, journalists have long dubbed band-founder Trey Azagthoth as the Eddie Van Halen of death metal. When the group emerged in 1989 with their first proper release, few, if any, could match the Mercury-footed speed of Pete Sandoval’s double-bass-blasting feet. The groove, mind-blowing skill and heretical lyrics and imagery landed the group at the top of the extreme metal world. Massive touring cycles transformed the band into one of the most prolific, underground touring acts of the 1990s. Their devilish music found its largest audience opening for Slayer and Pantera in the beginning of the new millennium.

After the Pantera gigs, Morbid Angel largely stayed out of the limelight. An opening stint for Soulfly in 2005 was the only North American tour I recall since Pantera. Assumingly, much of the crowd in attendance at Backstage Live in San Antonio had not seen the group in seven or even twelve years. Many long-time fans bemoaned “Illud Divinium Insanus,” the group’s first album in eight years, as the lowest point of artistry in the group’s near-thirty-year career. In fact, many of these fans felt the album was so poor they wouldn’t even venture out to see the band play, which is such a shame because they missed one of the best extreme metal tours of the year!

Grave Announces New Album Release

Swedish death metal legends Grave will release their 10th studio album "Endless Procession Of Souls" on August 27th in Europe and on August 28th in North America via Century Media Records.

Recorded at Studio Soulless, "Endless Procession Of Souls" promises to be yet another death metal masterpiece in Grave's revered catalog, featuring nine tracks of uncompromising no-bullshit death metal.

In support of this upcoming release, the band will be touring North America with Morbid Angel and Dark Funeral this September/October. In regards to the album and tour, founding member Ola Lindgren (vocals/guitar) comments, "Grave will return to North America in September, sharing the madness with our comrades in Morbid Angel and Dardk Funeral. After the successful 'Into the Grave' sets we did in September last year, it will be very exciting to come back to promote the new album 'Endless Procession of Souls', which will be released August 28th in North America (Aug 27th in Europe) through Century Media Records. This killer bill is in extremo deluxe and will show you what brutality is all about...Beware the Winds of Chains!"

Dark Funeral's Lord Ahriman (guitar) adds, "We are extremely proud to announce our participation in the upcoming Morbid Angel tour throughout North American territories this fall. We will march alongside our Swedish comrades Grave and American death metal-bezerkers Vadimvon, and it is without a doubt that this very tour will surely be remembered as one of the most extreme tours of all time. Hence, we command all our loyal North American metal-demons to come out and celebrate utter darkness every night. It's time to ignite the black flame and show the world that the force of extreme metal is unrelenting." More...

Grave Checks In From The Studio

Grave recently signed a new worldwide deal with the band's initial home, Century Media Records, and will be releasing a 10th studio album in 2012 through the label.

The band is currently in the legendary Studio Soulless working on the album, and Ola Lindgren has the following update for anxious Grave fans:

"Greetings, y'all! Just a quick update on what's going on in the Grave camp. This past week, we started the process of recording the new album in our own Studio Soulless. It's been going very well and sounds killer already at this early stage with only drums and bass tracks done. Nine new songs plus three special tracks for various releases of the album have been recorded, and I would describe it as a mix of our latest two releases with some more old-school, groovy 'Soulless' parts.

"I'm looking forward to my first ever NAMM show -- hope to meet some of you there! Also worth mentioning is that we are moving the studio to a new location, and from late February onwards, I will be taking on mixing and mastering missions full-time. Any inquiries, please contact studiosoulless@grave.se."

More news about this upcoming release will be announced soon, so stay tuned.
