"Our 3-song demo CD is finally done, as you can see on the pic Joe took. Next, we will approach labels and hopefully find someone who is interested in releasing the soon to be completed album.

Joe is back from a non-stop-6-month-lasting job and will finish the vocals plus some additional guitar parts in the next weeks. The final mix is now set for late October 2011, additional info - tracklist, artwork etc. - will follow in the near future.

We are deeply sorry for this delay and please, believe us that we are suffering from it more than anyone else. But there are things that just happen and cannot be influenced by anyone of us. The wait will be worth it, for sure. The new songs, especially with Joes voice are a huge step forward and we cannot wait to release the album and play live. Rock on!"

DuskMachine Announces New Singer

German thrash metal band DuskMachine has announced their new singer as Joe Comeau. The band has issued the following update:

"The DuskMachine is very happy to present its new frontman: Joe Comeau."

"Most people will know Joe from his amazing work as a guitar-player for OVERKILL and singer for bands such as ANNIHILATOR, TAD MOROSE and LIEGE LORD. Being friends for several years, he joined almost immediately when we contacted him. Joe has already recorded several songs and his singing is incredible. You can call him "the voice". But let the man speak for himself:"

"Dear Friends and fellow Metalheads-

As I now begin a new musical journey, it is with great honor to not only be in a band with such awesome musicians, but great friends as well! I have played on stages all over the world with Randy and Russ in a previous band and I have known them all (including Nikolai) for a number of years. Great music is not only formed by complimenting each other musically, but by working together as a unit. It is about time that the four of us banded together to create some killer tunes and memories, which I promise to you is being done at this moment! I have remained quiet for too long. The time has come. The time is now. Let us crush."

Unearthing The Thrash Based Metal Underground

I’m going to let you all in on my dirty little metal secret: I don’t dig thrash. At all. Yeah, I know, how can it happen, right? Megadeth, Metallica, Testament, Anthrax, these are the bands that made metal in the ‘80s and ‘90s and brought an otherwise niche genre into the mainstream spot light. Despite their name recognition and commercial success, I just find I can’t sit through a whole thrash album without wishing something different was playing.

In this week’s edition of “Unearthing the Underground,” I’ll be going over bands that start with a base of thrash metal, or have a big thrash metal influence, but add in a variety of different styles. The thrash influenced bands this time around all either have big name members or have released several albums, but haven’t received a big following outside the underground yet.

DuskMachine

First off is Germany’s Duskmachine, which is essentially a thrash metal band, but also incorporates power metal, progressive metal, and some groove metal elements. Some of the band’s influences are undoubtedly brought in by members Russell Bergquist (ex-Annihilator) and Randy Black (Primal Fear, ex-Annihilator). Duskmachine last released an album in 2005, and split with former vocalist Mirko Prietzsch back in July. The band has yet to formally announce a replacement, and the last update from the group stated a new album would be mixed this coming October.

You can check out a series of DuskMachine songs via the band’s MySpace page, or listen to the songs “The Final Fall” and “The Maker’s Death” in the video clips that follow. More...

DuskMachine Issues Band Update

Germany's DuskMachine has checked in with the following update about the band's activity:

"It's been a while since the last update, but due to several reasons - and really important ones. First off all, we had to move out of our studio/rehearsal place which I owned for 13 years. This was major stress, because when you own a studio for such a long time, you bring a lot of shit in there - and all of it had to go out! A pain in the ass, just because of lacking toleranc . So fucking what.

"This kept us busy now for the last 6 months, but we finally found a new room which allows us to continue like before, meaning having the possibility to have a rehearsal place AND a studio at the same time. A little smaller, but anyway great to go back to business soon. Of course we'll have to move in first, which means more work. The other reason - as you might guess by reading the headlines - is that we have a new singer again. No, we don't like to switch singers every 2 years - it just happens! More...

DuskMachine Recording New Album

Germany's DuskMachine has issued the following update about working on a new album:

"The DuskMachine wishes all you good people out there a healthy, successful and happy new year 2010! You can also expect a new album from us, it's not clear yet when exactly, but we hope to be done with the recordings soon, then mix everything and check out interested labels. We will definitely keep you posted. As some of you might have noticed, our main website is down now for quite a while. There was absolutely no time yet to care about it for several reasons, but this will be done asap. In the meantime, please check for news and if necessary, contact us using our MySpace."

DuskMachine Issues Studio Update

German metal band, DuskMachine, has issued the following studio update:

"We'd just like to inform you that we're starting soon tracking the vocals. Rhythm and Clean-Guitars are done, Russ will start laying down the bass tracks in a studio in Vancouver, B.C. very soon. The whole recording process is quite a bit delayed due to the fact that 2 guys in the band have day-jobs that make a constant working on the album almost impossible. We also think that rushing thru it won't make it better, so we take the time it needs to work on it. But so far we're very pleased with the overall sound of the new material - it is exciting to hear it getting more complete when adding new instruments and parts. We hope the recordings will be done by late summer, then comes mixing and the usual search for interested labels/companies....still a long way to go.
Stay tuned for the new stuff!"
