Below is our complete Acheron news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Blackened death metallers Acheron will release their new music video for the song “I am Heathen," which is off their new album “The Final Conflict: Last Days Of God," this Saturday, November 21st, 2009. This is the first professionally filmed music video the band has done in their 20 plus years of existence.
Band front man Vincent Crowley explains the concept behind the video: “The video is about embracing the life of being a Heathen. Many people struggle with what is wrong or right, good or evil. When they go against the norm, the guilt eats away at them. Heathens don’t have negative feeling about embracing their true nature. Temptation doesn’t weaken us because in the end we control it! Lots of the symbolism in the video shows just that.”
Blackened death metallers Acheron have signed with Ibex Moon Records for the U.S. release of their latest album "The Final Conflict: Last Days Of God." Commented bassist/vocalist Vincent Crowley: "We have really been wanting to have someone license our new album, 'The Final Conflict: Last Days of God', in the United States to help give us more of a push in our own country. When Ibex Moon stepped up and signed a deal with Displeased Records, we were very excited. John McEntee from Ibex Moon has really put his label/company on the map. Ibex Moon has great distribution and has been releasing excellent albums from killer bands. Our goals are to start promoting the new album as much as possible and get this new musical creation to all the American metal fans! And as we do this, we hope for all the fans to show their support and actually go out and buy a copy of the new CD. Don't let downloading replace the option of buying CD's! We promise those who get the new album won't be disappointed in their purchase."
The album, the band's first in six years, is out now in Europe and will be released on November 24 in the U.S. "The Final Conflict: Last Days of God" was once again recorded at Mars Recording Compound with Bill Korecky and was mastered at West West Side Music in New Windsor, New York. The follow-up to 2003's "Rebirth: Metamorphosing into Godhood" is a concept album based on the fall of the three major religions, Christianity, Islam and Judaism. You can check out audio samples on the band's MySpace page.

"Legions of Hatred,
"ACHERON would like to thank all their fans and friends who showed up at the Columbus, Ohio, show (September 3rd, 2009) and showed their support! It was a pretty damn good turn out for a Thursday Night! Even though this city is full of Hip Hop wannabees, you showed that there is still a strong Metal following pulsating in the shadows.
"We would also like to thank INCANTATION for being true fucking brothers and having us play with them. (Kyle had a nice workout last night doing 2 sets! LOL) Of course, they kicked ass as usual! Also hails to INFERNAL DEATH and THE COUNCIL for playing killer sets.
"Since Columbus is our home, we would really like to help build a bigger Metal community. Check out as many Local and National Metal acts playing in town, when you are able. We all know people have to work and have busy lives, but when you can actually make it out to a show, it does help the scene immensely! And if you are playing here, let everyone know! Most of the time our own friends don’t even let us know they are playing! So keep everyone updated, Mother Fuckers! (Ha, Ha) So thanks again for the support! We hope to see all of you again at THE BILLARD CLUB (Columbus, Ohio) on September 18th, 2009! The show will feature some killer bands, such as DARKNESS UNDYING, STRIGOI VII, AFTERLIGHT and one more un-announced band. We should be going on stage around Midnight. And yes, the set will be much longer than last night.
"Keep the Unholy Heathen Metal Flags waving! Let the world know that Underground Metal is here forever! Fuck their trendy bullshit!

This will let the fans get to hear the new material and be able to comment on what they think of it.
"There are three songs featured on the new demo:
01. Power And Might
02. Godless? (We Are Gods!)
03. Rise Of Rebellion
"These songs will be re-recorded for the next ACHERON album, which will be entitled 'The Final Conflict'. So check out the new ACHERON page and join their 'friends' list. Comments are always welcomed! And interested record labels can contact the band there also."

For the above mentioned "tribute show," Symbolic shared the stage with Bobby Koelble (Symbolic album), Shannon Hamm, Scott Clendenin (The Sound Of Perseverance album), Daniel Mongrain (Martyr), Marc-André Gingras (Quo Vadis), Jonathan Lee (The Autumn Offering, ex-Acheron), and Nick Barker (ex-Dimmu Borgir/Cradle Of Filth drummer).
All the profits from the show, which was recorded for an upcoming DVD release, will be divided between Schuldiner's foundation for cancer research and a local foundation.

Ohio-based black/death metal band ACHERON has welcomed back guitarist Stacey Connolly into its unholy fold for some live performances. Connolly has agreed to fill the second guitarist slot for several shows and appear on the upcoming ACHERON live DVD. According to the bandmembers, Stacey "is working out very well and it is great working with him again." But this is not a permanent position, since Stacey lives in West Virginia and already plays in the band LIFE IS LOST.
Commented band founder Vincent Crowley: "Stacey never left the band on bad terms and we have continued to be friends even after he left. We asked him to do us a favor by filling in and he agreed. It was much easier to go this route, since he already knew many of the songs we were doing. Much better than teaching a new guitarist a whole fucking set worth of stuff. Not to mention he put time into the band in the past, so having him appear on the upcoming live DVD just seemed like the right thing."
ACHERON's current touring lineup:
Vincent Crowley (Vocals and Bass)
Kyle Severn (Drums)
Max Oxworth (Guitar)
Stacey Connolly (Guitar)
After playing the of the Gathering of the Bestial Legion III festival in Hollywood, California earlier in the month, ACHERON parted ways with hired rhythm guitarist Jason Phillips. A replacement guitarist is currently being sought.
For more information, visit the band's MySpace page.

Vincent Crowley (vocals and bass), Kyle Severn (drums) and Max Otworth will begin work this Saturday, Septmber 1. Songs that will be recorded are "Godless (We are Gods!)", "Power and Might", "I am Heathen" and "Rise of Rebellion".

The CD will include bonus tracks of demo versions of songs featured on the album. The re-release is expected out before the end of 2006.
Even though ACHERON is presently on a hiatus, it is rumored that the band will be doing select shows where they will perform the "Rites of the Black Mass" album in its entirety from beginning to end to celebrate the upcoming re-release. It is also believed that band founder Vincent Crowley has been talking to the group's "Rites of the Blass Mass" lineup about reuniting for these select shows. However, it should be noted that there has been no official confirmation regarding these rumored activities.

"He has earned his spot in the band hands down!! James is a dependable, hard-working, hard-hitting, skin-beating motherfucker and wants everyone to know that he is going to stick with the band through thick and thin!! TIWANAKU is stronger than ever now!!!"
