Montreal's Augury has checked in with the following update:
"After eight years of collaboration, we are sad to announce that we had to part way with our bass player Dominic 'Forest' Lapointe. We keep in mind his outstanding musical input and volcanic stage presence, and thank him for helping to shape the sound of Augury.
"But the show must go on and we are actually starting The American Defloration tour with The Black Dahlia Murder, Obscura and Hatesphere, with a very special rhythm section featuring Quebec City jazz player Christian Pacaud (MAG Project) on bass, and our long-time friend Tommy McKinnon (formerly of Neuraxis) behind the drum kit. With such great personnel on board, we are eager to give American ears a good scrub once again!"

Danish metallers Hatesphere have issued the following statement:
"After months of negotiating we are finally able to announce, that our future home is now with Austria's powerhouse label, Napalm Records.
"This year has been really hectic for us - in a good way - and the great changes we've been going through made us push each other to perform at our very best. Sure there's been times where a sense of uncertainty has been hanging closely over our heads, but when it all came down we worked hard at what we do best and kept focus on the music.
"However, with that being said we still needed a new record label and in the end Napalm won us over with their integrity, hard work and a welcoming honest approach.
"After an intense 9 days in the studio with illustrious Tue Madsen (The Haunted, Moonspell, Dark Tranquillity, Gorefest) We ended up recording 10 songs for what will be a head on collision with your speakers, early next year. More info on song titles, cover artwork, release dates and other surprises is to be revealed soon.
"Our song 'Let them Hate' off of our latest album 'Serpent Smiles And Killer Eyes' is featured in the new Danish motion picture 'Lille soldat' in theatres now."
Danish death/thrash metal band Hatesphere has been announced as the latest addition to the Napalm Records roster.
Band leader Pepe Hansen states: "No compromise and no experiments!" Metal fans should fasten their seatbelt and prepare for an all crushing package. A new album is tentatively scheduled for spring 2009. The last year has been really hectic for us. Not in a bad sense, but we have been working hard on both new material, playing shows and changing the line-up. The great changes the band has been going through have meant that we needed a record label that would support us 100%. Napalm is not only very professional, they also have a great varied roster, and they have shown to be willing to support HateSphere in the way that we want. Our new album has been just completed, and no need to say that we really can't wait to get started with our work with Napalm. Early next year the album will be out, and Napalm Records and HateSphere are on their way. See you out there - stronger than ever!"
Danish metallers Hatesphere has posted the following message online:
"Due to the fact that Pepe is currently awaiting the birth of his first child we have been forced to postpone our show in Næstved on November 15th. Don't worry though, we will be back in Næstved, when the new album is released.
"In other news we are proud to tell you that the new album is now done. Be prepared for a giant kick in the ass!!! More news soon... and to the people at Aalborg Metal Festival: thanks for the support!"

Guitarist Henrik "Heinz" Jacobsen of the Danish death metal band KOLDBORN has issued the following update:
"A few things are going on in the band —we decided to let Morten [Løwe Sørensen] go and get original drummer Rasmus [Salskov] back again. It only took a few rehearsals before we had the first new song nailed — super-cool to have such an awesome band to write with again! We also recruited former HATESPHERE bassist Mikael [Ehlert Hansen] so basically it's the best lineup we could imagine — both musically and personally."
