"I am stepping down as the vocalist of Sessions and my last show with the band will be 12/5 Veil of Maya, Structures, Northlane, Vildhjarta @ Empire.

Continuing to tour and be with the band would put a lot of strain on my financial situation.

Carnifex Comments On Upcoming Album

Carnifex completed work on a new album earlier this Fall, which is scheduled for release in early 2014. Now vocalist Scott Lewis comments on the upcoming album:

"One question I kept asking myself during the writing process of the new album was; How do we make a Carnifex album that shows our growth as musicians and progress as artists but still remains 'Carnifex.'

"I believe this album represents the answer to that question. We pushed ourselves further than any previous album. We drew on influences never drawn from in the past. We incorporated elements of different genres we never touched on in previous albums.

"This album is the culmination of nearly 9 years of writing music as Carnifex. This is the album Carnifex was always meant to write."

Further details on the title and release date will be announced as they are made available.

Sworn In Drops Off Tour

While on tour with Bleeding Through and Winds of Plague, Sworn In became stuck on the road when the band's van broke down.

Now out of commission for nearly five days, the band has decided to drop off the tour. Sworn In issued the following statement about the situation:

"Many of you have been keeping in touch with us about our van situation since our transmission completely broke on Friday and was rendered impossible to drive. Breaking down on a weekend, the shop wouldn't be able to have people work on our van til Monday.

"Every day we would check in and even yesterday til the late afternoon they were waiting for the parts to come in to replace our transmission with a brand new one. While we were happy to have our van fixed and able to drive again, we were left with close to no money to even eat for the days we were stranded, a tour that was 17+ hours away from us (to make the next date overnight), and little to no merch to even sell for the rest of the tour.

"We looked into getting a drop shipment for today but literally could not afford the expedited shipping on top of the gas for the drive. Thus, we had to make the grueling decision at this point to either try to finish the tour without sufficient funds, or drive the shorter route home to recoup and raise the money to be able to start off our tour with Within The Ruins next Friday in NY. We wish we could say otherwise, but we chose the second option.

"You all very well know Sworn In isn't the type of band to give up when things go wrong. From when our van/trailer got impounded on the FTFD tour in May and we still completed the tour, to driving from North Dakota to California when all our shows in between got cancelled on our first tour ever, our utmost priority has always been to commit to our passion, job, and most importantly listeners. But this was the one time where it just wasn't possible in a world ruled by money.

"We aren't asking for your forgiveness or looking for a way out of the blame, but we want you all to know that we will be hitting many of the areas we are currently unable to on our tour with This Or The Apocalypse in January. Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Texas, and New Mexico you have our absolute word we are either already booked in your area again in Jan, or will be being booked there early 2014. More...

Persuader Details New Album "The Fiction Maze"

The fourth Persuader "The Fiction Maze" will be released in Europe on January 17th and in North America on January 21st through Inner Wound Recordings. Avalon/Marquee will release the album in Japan on December 25th.

"The Fiction Maze" is another step forward for Persuader as they constantly continue to develop their sound, song-writing skills and performance. Persuader describes the sound on the album: “A lot of hard work was put into creating the perfect mix of everything we've done so far. We've expanded on the Persuader sound while keeping true to the core that is the band; heavy riffing, strong melodies, pounding rhythms and soaring vocals.”

The mixing and mastering was handled by Ronnie Björnström (Aeon, Apostasy, Bone Gnawer) and the production fits the album really well, giving lots of space to the more aggressive side of the Persuader sound, but without losing the melodic parts in the process.

According to the press release "'The Fiction Maze' is the proof that Persuader is still one of the most exciting Swedish bands, and also one of the best power metal bands there is. The performance, song-writing and production is outstanding and with vocalist Jens Carlsson [who made his best vocal contribution so far on this album] they truly stand out in the scene and “The Fiction Maze” will for sure be a big hit and a classic in the scene."

"The Fiction Maze" track listing is as follows:

1. One Lifetime
2. War
3. The Fiction Maze

5. InSect
6. Son of Sodom
