We are at the moment in the process of writing songs for the new cd, and its going really well. Its always a bitch to get the writing process started, but this time has been pretty smooth, and we already have two songs done.
To everyone in good ol' Germany - remember to watch "Newcomer TV" Sonntagnacht 27.08.06 WDR Fernsehen 3:00 Uhr which will feature a special about the Traffic Jam festival we played a few weeks ago. We will be on there, messing around and drinking beer while trying to do an interview haha - should be good fun.
When we played the amazing Hellfest this year, our concert was filmed for the coming Hellfest 2006 DVD. I just saw the footage and its damn good - check it out, and buy the DVD which features a lot of other great bands who played at the festival too.

Newest LISTENABLE RECORDS signee, KOLDBORN, was formed by drummer Rasmus and axeman Heinz (current guitar player in HATESPHERE) in 1997 with the intention of playing catchy brutal music with an emphasis on groove.
After signing with the Danish label Diehard Music, they soon released their debut album "First Enslavement" in 2001. The 2004 EP "The Devil Of All Deals" was faster, more aggressive and introduced the new vocalist Lars.
This is the year 2006 and KOLDBORN are once again ready to blast their way to the top of European metal with their new CD "The Uncanny Valley".
Due to be released on October 16th, 2006 in Europe on LISTENABLE RECORDS, it is said to be, “an astonishing album that takes musical aggression to a new level and grooves straight to the fuckin' core of all that is heavy and extreme! Watch out!”
New tracks from the upcoming album "The Uncanny Valley" are available on their MySpace site The album cover depicted is not the definite one. New art will be announced shortly.

Vocalist Mikael Stanne comments on the upcoming tour: "We are very proud and excited to announce that we are heading out on another massacre of the European variety. Right in the middle of darkest December we will come and haunt your waking dreams. We are bringing a strong package this time around for sure. The mighty CHIMAIRA from the US of A and our Danish drinking buddies HATESPHERE. I personally cannot wait to go out with a posse like this and I am confident that you people out there into diversity and intensity will get your fill. So prepare to get those carcasses out in the miserable pre-christmas cold and join us for hours cosy carnage and madness. I promise you the full DARK TRANQUILLITY experience with a long set of songs about self-destruction and pain that you all know and love!"
