Eric Horner of Throne of Malediction has checked in with the following update about the band's current lineup and upcoming activity:
"Throne of Malediction is down to two members at the moment. Eric and Jessica Horner, both on guitars and vocals. We have moved to Ozark, Missouri (near Springfield) and are soon to be looking for new members to get some live shows going soon.
"Our album 'Ceremonial Blood' is on order from the manufacturer and should be released by mid-June, after a long wait (available through our label). In addition, our label, Ziekte Records is now part of Victory By Fire Records (Holland). So Throne is through Victory By Fire, officially as of now.
"Me and Jessica are also recording a few new songs already with a few guest musicians (one is a legend in his own right...) for Throne's 2nd album. We are also going to release an extra, free download EP through Black Metal Agenda (Norway) with extra songs and covers (including a planned cover of 'The Prize of Beauty' by My Dying Bride). So, even without a full lineup, Throne of Malediction is very much active and looking forward to the future."

We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories from metal shows. In this week's edition of Pit Stories, vocalist/guitarist Eric Horner from Throne of Malediction shares a story of a groupie cat fight:
I had a fun time at a Cradle of Filth/Nachtmystium show at The Knitting Factory, February 12th, in Spokane Washington. Seeing killer bands in my local area and gaining VIP access (along with my key player, Nick), thanks to Blake from Nachtmystium, were highlights. While watching and filming Cradle of Filth play in the VIP section, a few ladies decided to duke it out. One of them was a lady that was hanging out with me and the band members earlier. It was quite a surreal sight, seeing a brawl, with a great band playing. Kind of made my show better, to say the least.
I took some video of the scene. Along with other footage from the show. I am not sure why they even battled, but it was kind of interesting, unexpected, scene. There were hair extensions laying about afterward. The VIP section had a blast swinging them about and fashioning fake beards from the hair pieces. I also heard there was a fight in the pit around the same time. Must have been the metal-hungry crowd in Spokane, Washington. I want to thank the bands for stopping out!

From the very beginning, heavy metal has been about rebellion against established norms and restrictive social institutions. That theme has never prevented metal from being influenced by the greatest of mankind’s various systems of organized repression, however. Using a guitar and a microphone to express discontent over the actions of parents and governments inevitably led to bands expressing their disgust with the beliefs behind those actions. Whether musicians are singing about it, railing against it, or just simply partaking of it in their free time, religion has an undeniable role to play in nearly every sub-genre of heavy metal.
Plenty of bands have been built up around an anti-religious atmosphere, whether a simple general sentiment or a full-on fervor that drives the music. Despite metal being frequently identified with an anti-religious standpoint, the style has more than its fair share or religious spokesmen. Famous musicians such as Dave Mustaine of Megadeth have never been particularly quiet about their Christian faith, even if they don’t expressly promote it in any given song. Explicitly Christian metalcore acts are also rapidly gaining widespread attention, with groups like August Burns Red taking over Hot Topic and acts like I The Breather touring the U.S.
In general, it would seem the thrash metal world either doesn’t care about Mustaine’s religious affiliation or is willing to overlook it for the sake of the music. Thrash certainly has its share of anti-Christian songs, but it’s a genre that’s more concerned with social issues or an overall aggressive musical feel than anything dealing with supernatural belief systems.
As any fan of metal can easily attest, not all genres are built equal, and what appeals to one metal head is a serious turn off for another. Black metal is easily among the most infamous of all metal styles, having cut its teeth in the early ‘90s across a back drop of church burnings and sensational media stories of power struggles between Satanic leaders. Names like Emperor and Mayhem were starting to make waves and become recognized in the underground not only across Europe, but also in the U.S. and abroad. More...
