Denver metal band Havok has issued the following new album update:
"Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this Sun of ours. After over a year of tensions, ruptures, struggles, and a staggering amount of intense work, time has now come to reveal the title of HAVOK's sophomore full-length album."
"STATUES OF SISYPHUS represents to us the experience of human existence. With others, with ourselves. The cyclical rise and fall, the Ourobouros of meaninglessness and mundanity. What we are, what we were, what we will remain. A worn philosophical symbol perhaps, but none the less potent, none the less real as it has been proved to us over and over again.
The music we will present to you is a logical continuation of our earlier works, as well as a massive leap forward, in all directions. Extreme? Yes; over-the-top velocities, stupefying guitar work and insane vocals guaranteed. Progressive? In several senses. Death Metal? In lack of better terms, yes. The album will be produced by Andreas Wiberg (previous member of The Shattering) in coalition with ourselves, and released by ViciSolum Productions as 2010 falls (say, November). A few of the song titles are: 'Linear Existence,' 'The Glacial Face,' 'Grey Eyes, Golden Skin,' 'Carver Of Lies,' and 'Unventured Thoughts.'"
"We are set to commence the drum production on March 22. More information will be revealed as we go along."
Boston thrash metal band Ravage has issued the following update:
"As for us, we will be playing a couple of more local shows including a hometown show to benefit the homeless at My Honey Fitz in Malden MA on March 20th. It will be the first time we have played inside the actual Malden city limits in many years. I think it will be our first Malden show since the infamous shows at TJ's Roadhouse back in 2000. We are also playing special April Fools Metal Thursdays show at Ralph's Diner in Worcester MA on April 1st."
"We also hope to make up some of the southwest shows we missed during last fall's US tour. We'll be appearing at Thrashmagedon 2 in Albuquerue NM on May 1st and details on any other shows will be announced soon."
"We are working on new material and hope to begin recording some time in the summer."
"In other news..."
"Check out the forthcoming album from STEEL MAID - featuring members of RAVAGE, RITUAL STEEL, and IVORY TOWER. It was recorded over the last 2 years and will finally be released on CD and Vinyl by Karthago Records in April. You can now hear clips from all the tracks at www.steel-maid.de in the soundcheck section."
"Ravage bassist Rich Berte is recording a demo with his thrash band Rich Berte's LETHAL DESIGN - which should be available soon."
"Former Ravage bassist Mike Gignac's band RIPFENCE recently finished recording and should have an album coming out soon."
"Ravage drummer Pete Webber has joined Colorado thrashers HAVOK and will be playing on tour with them this spring. We wish him the best of luck as he heads out on an extensive stint opening for Primal Fear and Hammerfall."
"Drummer Dan Kowal (of Rich Berte's LETHAL DESIGN) has been named as a fill-in at the drum position. Check out his other band SKULLHAMMER who also have an album coming soon."
