END OF GREEN guitarist Sad Sir comments on the video shoot, “It's quite weird to shoot a petrol station hold-up while there's still customers coming in to fill up or to get some beer. At least I would have found it strange if at that time of the evening a woman holding a gun entered a petrol station in front of me. But in Munich people seem to be a bit more relaxed.”

Dimmu Borgir recently announced the band's new album will be titled "Abrahadabra," and the full cover artwork is now available for viewing here. The band issued the following statement about the meaning behind the title:
"The word 'abrahadabra' (which roughly translates into 'I will create as I speak') first publicly appeared in Chapter III of Liber AL vel Legis (commonly referred to as The Book of the Law) written by Aleister Crowley in Cairo, Egypt in 1904."
Dimmu Borgir's vocalist Shagrath also shared the following comments about the new album:
"After eleven months of total focus, dedication and professional team work, Darkness has been reborn. Some people have expressed their concern about the future of the band since the departure of some members of the clan. Let me assure you that things happen for a reason. The black flame burns brighter than ever before. With the mixture of our different musical preferences and the personalities involved, I will dare to say we have created a beast, the most detailed work to date out of our 17 years of existence. I know it’s too much of a cliché to brag when you have a done a new album, but to put it short and simple, it’s a fist in the face to all the doubters out there. Forward – Onward - March... Enter the supreme unknown.”
For the second time in the band’s career (since 1996’s Stormblåst), a one-word album title breaks the tradition of a three-word album title for a new studio release dating back to Dimmu Borgir’s 1994’s debut, "For All Tid." More...

"Based out Winnipeg, Manitoba Evil Survives first began spreading their metallic mayhem when the in the summer of 2006 Front man Karl 'Axe n’ Smash' Warkentin and guitarist Adrian Riff began the arduous task of recruiting like minded metal heads. Finally after three months the search was complete and Evil Survives was born. By June 2008 Evil Survives made its first performance- by no coincidence...but fate! - outside of an Iron Maiden concert in their home town of Winnipeg. Less than a month later, Evil Survives entered the studio to record their debut full length album Metal Vengeance released exclusively on vinyl on by Canadian ‘War on Music’ label. More...
