Dragonforce To Re-Issue First Two Albums

Dragonforce have announced that their first two studio albums "Valley of the Damned" and "Sonic Firestorm" will be re-issued on February 23rd via Spinefarm Records. Both titles will now be available with updated packaging and bonus audio/DVD content, some of it exclusive to these releases. Formed in 1999, Dragonforce issued their "Valley of the Damned" debut in 2003, which has now been remixed and remastered for the re-release.

“Fans who have heard the original mixes many times might find that the songs sound a bit different now,” observes guitarist Herman Li, “but that’s how we always wanted the original songs to sound. We just didn’t have the time back then to make everything sound the way we wanted.”

The studio track "Where Dragons Rule" has now been added to the audio side, and there is a bonus DVD featuring never-before-seen live footage, behind-the-scenes material, video commentaries, as well as in-studio interviews and clips.

Crown The Lost Issues Album Update

Pittsburg's Crown the Lost has issued the following update about their new album:

"Hey gang, first off, this winter nonsense is pretty lame-o. The only people that are probably enjoying this are Immortal. They'd probably laugh if they knew what a difficult time people here are having with the snow. But I digress...

"Over the span of the last several months, we've been working diligently on album #3, which will is titled Cold Pestilent Hope. It will contain 11 songs, two of which are instrumentals and in our humble estimation, is the next logical step from our previous efforts. Recording will commence before all of the snow melts and once again, we'll be hunkered down in Soundscape Studios with Dave Watson (Mantic Ritual) and artwork/design will be provided by Jarno Lahti, who did the artwork for Blind Faith Loyalty.

TTEOTD Discusses "Skepsis" Concept, Posts Lyrics

Through The Eyes of the Dead made a blog post discussing the concept and story behind their new album, "Skepsis," as well as posting all of the lyrics. Here's what they had to say about the concept of "Skepsis:"

"The story is a first person view through the main character who has a strong, skeptical view on humanity and reality. He believes that this reality is a mere illusion, and that there are celestial / spiritual forces at work that control this world, and the human race. He has a re-occurring dream of the nearing apocalypse, and inevitable damnation of mankind. The dream starts to drive him towards extreme paranoia, so he begins to search for answers to his odd suspicion. He then becomes channeled by an omen that gives him a vision of the underworld, and how it is the final destiny for the human race. He becomes maniacal at this point and communicates with the omen, pleading for his fate to be spared and that he may be granted the privilege to become a spiritual force like the omen. He returns from the vision....psychotic, believing that the omen granted him the power to take human lives, so that his can be spared. He loses all consciousness, and morals, and begins to start taking lives uncontrollably, and drinking himself to death. He is void of sanity at this point, possessed by an evil, supernatural force that is killing him with haste. 'The omen' makes him commit suicide and he descents into hell. He awakes in a white room; confused at first, thinking it was just another dream.... only to realize the room is empty, with no exit. He is in his own personal hell for eternity."
