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.

We will be back later this year, hope you all understand."
HATESPHERE will embark on a Danish tour in early February. A list of confirmed dates can be found at Hatesphere.com.

Swedish melodic death metallers DARK TRANQUILLITY are about to embark on a European headlining tour in support of their latest effort, "Character" (released in January 2005). After supporting KREATOR on their European tour in spring 2005, a trip to the U.S. and numerous festival appearances, the sextet will be headlining this time, with support from thrash/metalcore hybrid CHIMAIRA and HATESPHERE.
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!"
DARK TRANQUILLITY just returned from a show on Gran Canaria, where they played at Metal Zone festival, and are prearing to play the Motala Motala Metal Festival in their home country on November 19 with labelmates NOCTURNAL RITES and other acts.

Hammerfall, Therion and Kataklysm are among the bands confirmed for the 2005 edition of the Metal Camp festival, set to take place June 24-26 in Tolmin, Slovenia.

Allhelluja is a new band born from a collaboration between Danish and Italian friends. On vocals Jacob Bredahl, frontman of the latest extreme metal explosion Hatesphere, in tour now with Kreator/Dark Tranquillity/Ektomorf and soon on the road again supporting the legendary kings of death metal Morbid Angel; on drums Stefano Longhi, from Scarlet Records, Hatesphere old label (now the band is with SPV). Allhelluja just finished the debut album "Inferno Museum," lyrically inspired by Derek Raymond's book "Dead Man Upright," a 'psycho-sex serialkiller' masterpiece. Mastered at the top Swedish studios Cutting Room (Rammstein, Backyard Babies, In Flames). "Inferno Museum" will feature 10 songs and the sound should be described as an explosive mix between Entombed, Motorhead and Kyuss. Dirty Rockin' Metal with a diabolical lyrical concept behind! The band is now considering offers from various labels. The album release is tentatively scheduled for May/June 2005. More news will follow.

On November 15th 2004 Dark Tranquillity's new “Lost To Apathy EP” was released through Century Media Records and received praise all over the globe, even managing to enter the official Swedish single charts at a very good position 47. Now it’s about time to introduce the upcoming seventh studio album “Character”, to be released January 24th 2005. Expect the best - because you’ll get the best!
The new massive Dark Tranquillity album “Character” is likely to be the most awaited Melodic Death Metal record since a very long time. We can assure that this album kicks serious ass, but also contains tons of great hooklines and a well-balanced mixture of pure aggression and fantastic melodies made for eternity. With “Character”, the Swedish six-piece have raised the bar to an almost unreachable height for their style’s “competitors”. You will get to hear and approve it: Simply check out the new song “Through Smudged Lenses” in the download section.
Mikael Stanne (Vocals) and Niklas Sundin (Guitar) just recently visited the German Century Media office and recorded a video message for their worldwide fan base: http://www.centurymedia.de/specials/dt_greetings.rm. More...
