Nuclear Blast has announced the tracklisting of "Alone in the Dark," the original motion picture soundtrack inspired and from the movie.

The soundtrack will feature some of today’s best Metal bands such as Dimmu Borgir, Shadows Fall, Fear Factory, Machine Head amongst others, and it will be featured on a double disc format. This is the first time a Hollywood production receives an all Extreme Metal soundtrack. The release date for the soundtrack has been set for January 25, 2005.
Edward Carnby (Christian Slater) is a private investigator specializing in unexplainable supernatural phenomena. His cases delve into the dark corners of the world, searching for truth in the occult remnants of the ancient civilizations. Now, the greatest mystery of his past is about to become the most dangerous case he has ever faced. With the help of his ex-flame, archeologist Aline Cedrac (Tara Reid), and his bitter rival, government agent Richard Burke (Stephen Dorff), Edward Carnby is about to learn that just because you don’t believe in something, that doesn’t mean it can’t kill you. More info can be found here.
There will be two different version of the soundtrack, one for European territories and the American version. Here are both tracklists: More...
After their extraordinarily successful US tour with Damageplan (our sincere condolences to all relatives of the victims of the tragic incident – R.I.P., Dimebag) and labelmates Shadows Fall, the Swedish five-piece will now start to devastate Europe.
On January 26th 2005 The Haunted will head out for the “Close Up Made Us Do It Tour” as headlining act all over Scandinavia together with supports Totalt Jävla Mörker & Insision. The last show of this leg will take place in Arhus (DK) on February 13th. Afterwards the guys have a few days off to hang out at home before they fly to the UK in order to tear down the walls of the English clubs. The headlining tour will start February 24th and run up to March 7th with support acts Martyr AD & Dead To Fall. More European tourdates will be announced soon.
Here is Frontman Peter Dolving’s comment about the activities of the past months:
It’s been an insane, great, weird and sad year. We’ve received such a strong response to "rEVOLVEr" as we never have before and it feels - as you can probably imagine - well, like a lot of everything.
The spring of 2004 we did a tour in the UK with our brothers in Funeral For A Friend, playing for an audience completely new to us. I did that whole tour with four fractured ribs and it hurt like hell every night but we still had a good time. Seeing teenage girls screaming in the first row and watching as 2000 Emo-kids formed circle-pits as we played in Glasgow was amazing.
The six week US tour with Shadows Fall and Damageplan ended on a sour note with the slaying of Dimebag Darrell, but it was heavy fucking package, every show escalating the intensity as we all inspired each other to outdo ourselves, setting a new mark every night.
We intend to honour Dimebag’s memory by fucking shit up more ferociously than ever before and we look forward to seeing our fans throughout the UK – it’s a hard love thing, you know what I mean... If there was ever a mark for what we can achieve as a band - Well, this time we push the limits forward. See you there.

This year, Metalunderground.com is figuratively handing out an award of its own for "Best Metal Album of The Year." Everyone else hands out "best of year" awards or lists, so why shouldn't we? Afterall, the staff here at metalunderground.com has very diverse tastes, and we know our metal. So this year I asked each of our writers to pick their top 5 albums of 2004 and rank them form 1 to 5. What I saw was a lot of different opinions, but among the differences, two albums rose to the top.
Without further ado...[drum roll, please]...the winner of Metalunderground.com's "Best Metal Album of The Year" honor for 2004 is: More...

Seemless (ex-Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall) and Equal Vision Records have confirmed that Equal Vision will be releasing a remastered and repackaged version of Seemless' self-titled album, which was originally released via Losing Face Records. The album will hit stores on January 25th. You can download some of the group's material here.
Due to a family bereavement, Shadows Fall have been forced to cancel their forthcoming UK tour. The band were due to support to Fear Factory from Thursday and to play headline shows in Wales and Ireland next week.
Shadows Fall states, "First off we just want to apologize to everyone that was expecting to see us in the UK. We always have an amazing time whenever we come over and were siked to be heading back. We never cancel shows unless it is completely unavoidable. Nothing is as important to us as our friends and loved ones. In a time of tragedy you have to be there to support those who were always there for you."
Due to circumstances beyond our control, Shadows Fall's show tonight (November 22) at Clutch Cargo's in Pontiac, Michigan has been cancelled. There will be no rescheduled date.
Shadows Fall played in Japan for Extreme The Dojo with Killswitch Engage and Caliban last year and can't wait to get back. Here are this year's dates:

According to Hits Daily Double, label reps from Hollywood, Epic, RCA, Capitol and others showed up for the SHADOWS FALL concert last week at the House of Blues on Sunset. The Syndicate-repped group has reportedly fulfilled its commitment to current label Century Media. The band's latest album, "The War Within", debuted in the Top 20 on the album chart. Legal eagle Saguit Saad is said to be mediating the negotiations.
SHADOWS FALL are currently on a co-headlining North American tour with DAMAGEPLAN. Also appearing on the bill are THE HAUNTED
Shadows Fall has posted their video for "What Drives the Weak" on the Shadows Fall My Space page. The video was directed by Zach Merck (Hatebreed, Atreyu).
Lead singer, Brian Fair, of Shadows Fall was recently diagnosed with not only strep throat, but also laryngitis. However, he refuses to cancel any performances because of it. Fair states, "I have never cancelled a show due to poor health and don't plan on it now. The support of our fans means the world to us and I would never do anything to let them down. Besides, if Curt Shilling can lead the Red Sox to a World Series victory with a sewn up ankle then I can tough it out and bring the metal."
Shadows Fall will be featured guests on this week’s Headbangers Ball special Halloween edition, set to air on MTV2 this Saturday night Oct. 30th at 10PM EST/7PM PST. The show will be composed of interviews and segments of the band playing live taken exclusively from the Blood Rayne 2 release party filmed at the Los Angeles House of Blues last Thursday Oct. 21st. The episode will also include the world premiere of the group’s new video, “What Drives The Weak,” shot by acclaimed director Zach Merck (12 Stones, Atreyu).

Vocalist Brian Fair was asked to help launch Juliya from Uranium’s website, www.juliya.net, by answering 10 band related questions.
1. You guys incorporate both, traditional Heavy Metal as well as elements of Death Metal and Hardcore. You have been on tours of all types, which is the most aggressive scene?
It all depends on how you look at it. We did a tour once with Hatebreed, Six feet Under, Shadows Fall and Death Threat and that was probably the most brutal tour because it drew hardcore kids and death metal kids to the same show so all hell broke loose every night. Hardcore kids definitely dance harder but metal heads seem to hurt each other more but enjoy it. When you combine the two it is total insanity.
2. The beautiful thing about your music (especially in this record) is that you have a lot of old school style riffs which appeals to an older crown as well as a lot of modern crunchy riffs with melodic and deep growling aggressive vocals. Do you see a large variety in your audiences and which style is more fun for you?
We are influenced by every form of heavy music, from old school metal, to rock n roll to thrash and hardcore. We grew up playing both metal and hardcore so all of it will be incorporated in our sound. They are fun and I couldn't imagine limiting ourselves to on specific style. That would be come too repetitive for me.
3. Do you feel that you are bringing back the essence of traditional metal?
We are not trying to bring anything back, we just…
