French black metal act Aosoth has issued the following road report from their recent tour dates:
"First of all this report does represent ONLY the point of view of the writer, thus the ex vocalist of that band. I have to thank Hell Militia & Blacklodge for having offered us the opportunity to perform with Aosoth & getting us to witness us delivering hellish gigs 10 nights in a row. Thks to the Metal Kommand chief Steve for all his work & to Robert/Carsten for the time spent with them & the help given.
"Major issue we had on the tour now that all is over & done since weeks : we should have had a sound engineer with us on the tour & also have two guitar players on stage instead of just one. All performances ended up in having the very same issue : NOT representing the band & not listening to any request given to the sound engineer : - low vocals on stage requested, they should always be under the guitar & bass - that is my request as a vocalist & it has never been respected by those retards. - massive guitar sound from the moment we start & not a fucking volume leveled down since ‘the sound engineer’ thinks it's nicer that way & better to put vocals & drums / bass upfront - having monitors issues on stage : considering the venues & the equipment most of those place would have, wouldn't say much about it. Was mostly shit. More...

Aosoth has issued the following announcement about streaming the track "Inner War" online at their MySpace page:
"So it is done. It's been one of my expectations for a decade now to re record this one specific track that had a demo recording condition on the previous release of Antaeus & as a symbol, since the rage within Antaeus is still there & will remain for now, we did get to expose a newer bleeding to this track & we are proud to share it around with those into Antaeus. Aosoth, my 'actual' band, has been performing this track since the first live ritual & we will go on, since for all of us, it has a special meaning considering that Antaeus is not a live performing band & that track is one symbol of audio violence to us, we are paying an homage to what is 'IT' for us.
"Give us your impression, hate it, crave for the original one more with all its mistake & the one take only opportunity with mixing screwing over anything I would have done myself AT LEAST NOW I am satisfied for something burnt down on cd live with Antaeus : it was perfect so is the aosoth version nowadays live just the audio recording was not as I wanted. Anyway enough with the bullshit those willing to give it a try can & to the rest, as usual : FUCK OFF"
France's Aosoth has issued the following brief update about signing a record deal with Agonia Records:
"French AOSOTH inked 2 albums deal with Agonia Records. New album is being recorded now. Set to be released early 2010. 'Ashes of Angels' will be released in limited lp version & digipack."
