Bone Gnawer Re-Signs To Pulverised Records

Singapore-based Pulverised Records is pleased to announce the re-signing of horror/gore death metallers BONE GNAWER.

BONE GNAWER is the collaboration between legendary growler Kam Lee (ex-Mantas, ex-Massacre, ex-Denial Fiend), Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Demiurg, Ribspreader etc.), Ronnie Bjornstrom (Hate Ammo, Ribspreader, Taedeat) and Morgan Lie (Naglfar).

Commented Lee of the new album deal and the band's upcoming recording: "It feels good to be back with Pulverised. This is the one label that has a true understanding of the type of oldschool '90s style of death metal we play.This time around we're taking another brave and bold approach to our musical direction and lyrical concepts. We always strive to go against the grain and not cater to modern trends, all the while staying true to the oldschool death metal sound.This time around we are going for a torture and vengeance type lyrical concept, although some of those traditional 'cannibal themed' type lyrics will remain. We are [going for] a grittier feel and a much darker edged 'grind-house' appeal to our lyrical concepts taking influences from some of the more hardcore exploitation type films of the late '70s such as I Spit On Your Grave and Last House On The Left. Musically we are retaining the horrific blend of oldschool death metal we are known for, yet combining it with an even catchier flair."

Further details on the follow-up to BONE GNAWER's "Feast Of Flesh" debut are to be announced soon.

Daath Return To Tour The US with Dark Funeral

Refueled and ready to slay, Daath are returning to the US for a full-on aural assault. After spending a few days bringing a dose of Daathliness to Japan, the band is set to hit the road with death metal natives, Dark Funeral and Naglfar. Dates will span over a month, with the metal tour kicking off on October 10th in Springfield, Virginia and wrapping up on November 4th in Covington, Kentucky. This solid lineup will mark the band’s triumphant return to the US after a highly successful run on this summer’s free Ozzfest 2007.

Daath has also created a series of short videos available via their YouTube page and Roadrunner site entitled DAATHUMENTARY. Each of the video episodes is designed to take fans behind the scenes and expose the core of Daath’s drive and passion. The first installment features a backstage look at Ozzfest 2007, band banter and explanations of some of the deeper spiritual concepts of the band and music. The second installment of DAATHUMENTARY features another insight into the unpredictable lives of the band, as well as fine repair skills!

The first and second episode of DAATHUMENTARY can be viewed here.

Spawned from an esoteric heart, Daath’s compositions and credo coincide with a stream of concepts linked to the Hebrew Tree of Life/Death. In the Tree of Life/Death, there are thirteen points and each one of the songs on their Roadrunner Records debut, The Hinderers, is representative of each of these points. Produced by James Murphy (Testament, Obituary), the album has been received with high critical acclaim. The band has begun working on concepts for their next release, encompassing ideas plucked from the spiritual vein. Pursuing higher planes, Daath is metal with a conscience, sparking extreme thought within the metal community.

Here are the latest Daath tour dates: More...

Thyrfing Lose Singer and Guitarist

Sweden's THYRFING have issued the following update:

"After a decade in the band, both (singer) Thomas Väänänen and (guitarist) Henrik Svegsjö have decided to leave Thyrfing. They have informed us that they lack the motivation needed for another album.

We have split ways on good terms, and would like to thank them for all these great years.

With this being said, we hereby welcome Jens Rydén to the band as new vocalist. Jens is best known as founding member and ex-vocalist of NAGLFAR and recently also for his one-man army PROFUNDI.

We all feel very enthusiastic about bringing new blood into the band and it will be very interesting to write and compile the next Thyrfing album together.

For the time being we will go on with one guitar player, and time will tell what happens to the second guitar position…"

Naglfar Unveil 'Harvest' Album Artwork

Through trenchant seas, the seasoned crew on the ship NAGLFAR deliver their fifth and most accomplished slab of melodic black metal yet, Harvest. Perfectly fusing the raw energy of their earlier works with the inspired and cutting melodicism of 2005's Pariah, Harvest marks the raucous return of one of the genre?s most celebrated acts, and sees these five Swedes set their sights on sinister shores previously uncharted. The highly anticipated effort is set for a March 12th release.

Without sacrificing their trademark ferocity, NAGLFAR delve deeper into songwriting mode on Harvest, crafting nine brilliantly orchestrated tracks that stick harder than cement. Newest member Morgan Lie (bass) and Mattias Grahn (drums) provide the backdrop for the sharp, anguished screams of Kristoffer Olivius (vocals), who injects the release with an even more diverse array of vocal venom than that found on Pariah, his singing debut. NAGLFAR have created another masterpiece and find themselves the lone champion of all that is dark, technical, and unholy.

Official Harvest Track Listing: 01. Into The Black 02. Breathe Through Me 03. The Mirrors Of My Soul 04. Odium Generis Humani 05. The Darkest Road 06. Way Of The Rope 07. Plutonium Reveries 08. Feeding Moloch 09. Harvest

A limited edition of Harvest will also be available, which includes a bonus DVD with four professionally recorded live clips from the Party.San Festival 2006, a video for the Pariah track The Perpetual Horrors and an interview with Olivius. The cover artwork was handled by the acclaimed Travis Smith (Opeth, Nevermore) and can be viewed by clicking the link below. http://www.naglfar.net/enter_harvest.jpg

NAGLFAR will kick off the albums touring cycle in Japan this week with labelmates Celtic Frost and Satyricon. A video for the track The Darkest Road will be filmed by Roger Johansson (Arch Enemy, The Haunted, Dark Tranquillity) shortly after the band returns from Japan and an MP3 of the song will be posted online later this month.
