Victorian death/thrashers Ayera have posted an update on the band’s soon to be released EP titled "The Chaos Rebellion."
"Its been a long and at times painful process, but after many hours of hard work, the ‘Chaos Rebellion’ EP has been recorded and is almost ready to be released.
"We have really pushed to get as much content into this EP as possible, clocking in at almost 30 minutes with an intro and 5 songs. With over 75 hours of work in the studio, we have over-analysed and dissected every second of music, re-recorded multiple sections and have perfected this release as much as possible. Overall we are extremely happy with the result, and hope all our fans around our area will appreciate and enjoy it. Thanks for sticking by us!
"The tracks will be posted on our myspace in early July, at the same time as our new myspace layout. Copies of the EP will be on sale come mid-late August. This will include a digipack type package, with full EP art and a short booklet with lyrics etc. T-shirts, stickers and other merchandise will also be available.
"This band is about to get seriously busy with shows around Victoria and beyond. We are aiming for new heights, and are looking to play any gigs at any time, supporting The Chaos Rebellion EP. We will also look to set up a few gigs in the not too distant future, so stay tuned for those as we will need bands to play alongside and metal-heads to turn up & headbang \m/."

Hailing from the city of Copenhagen, THE PSYKE PROJECT is best-known for bringing an intense, yet chaotic sound that is based on heavy riffs and despairing passages within an epic framework.
Following last year's “Apnea,” LIFEFORCE RECORDS is releasing the band's fourth album, “Dead Storm,” which has been produced by Frederik Nordström and Henrik Udd in famous Fredman Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden.
“Dead Storm” is a rendition of Scandinavian nature and narratives of the world that THE PSYKE PROJECT belong to. The album is a sound scape influenced by the frailty and authenticity of traditional Nordic music and at the same time there’s a presence of pristine landscapes throughout the songs.
The honesty of Nordic narratives - be it nature, myths or music - has made an deep impact on how THE PSYKE PROJECT wanted to record the album and the emotions that should be conveyed through “Dead Storm.”
It has been paramount to the band that all studio recordings were done live and within a short time span in order to stay honest to the song writing and to convey a sense of authenticity and unpredictability on the album.
You can now listen to the brand new song, “Stockholm Bloodbath” on the band's relaunched MySpace page.
“Dead Storm” will reach stores on August 24th in Europe and September 1st in North America.
SEPULTURA has announced their planned appearance at the festival Son de Meiga in Ourense, Spain on July 24th. The festival appearance replaces the previously announced show in Vigo at Sala A, which is no longer scheduled.
