Alternative metal act Unlost has issued the following announcement about splitting with the band's vocalist:

"After a year and a half of intensive rehearsing, gigging and recording we are parting ways with our lead singer Mindaugas Paukstys. We wholeheartedly thank Mindaugas for his dedication (two hour commute to the rehearsals and two hours back home is pretty tough) and his creative input into our music. Best of luck to you, buddy!

"At the same time we are reiterating that Unlost is marching on. We are now intensively auditioning singers, for our debut album is still in the making and it will be finished with a new voice.

Power Theory Adds Second Guitarist

Philadelphia-based traditional metal band Power Theory has welcomed renowned metal guitarist Steve Stegg into the ranks as the newest band member. Steve is a founding member and former guitarist for Blood Feast, Sleepy Hollow and Tapping the Vein. Guitarist Bob 'BB' Ballinger of Power Theory had the following to say:

Power Theory has been looking to add a second dual rhythm/lead guitarist since the end of the recording sessions for 'An Axe to Grind,' but our commitments haven't given us the time to do anything but start to compile a list of potential candidates. Steve is a great friend and supporter of the band, and has been a regular at our local shows; in fact he replaced me as the Colossus guitarist and played with Jay Pekala prior to his first Sleepy Hollow tenure.

We would always jokingly add Steve as our top candidate when we discussed it, but knew he was very busy with Sleepy Hollow and there was no chance, so we moved on to other names. "Steve informed us he had become available in mid July and was interested in jamming to see if there was chemistry and it was evident from the first few minutes it was a great fit for both Power Theory and Steve.

We will then take a short break from live shows to start demo tracking for a new full length CD we are planning to start recording in February and release in 2013. We are currently negotiating with a legendary artist/producer for the project (more to come soon on that). Steve will be a very big part of the writing and recording process for the new album, and we will resume some live shows in October 2012. European dates are being planned for 2013 with Red Lion Music as well as Warriors of Metal Fest VI, and some US tour dates with Axxenstar and Taberah for summer 2013.

Immediate plans for the band, who just released "An Axe to Grind" on Pure Steel Records, are two area shows in August:

August 11th

FalloutZine Presents: at O'Reilly's Pub in Philadelphia, PA - October 31, Anvil Bitch, Sinister Realm, Power Theory, Hammer Fight, and Mistress.

August 19th

Magnetar Media and Biz R Entertainment Present at Jimmy's Place in Allentown, PA: North American Assault - White Wizzard, Icarus Witch, Widow, Power Theory, and Infernal Opera.

Pit Stories: Chinese Uprising At A Drone Show

Every Tuesday we check in with musicians and fans to have them share their most memorable mosh pit stories from metal shows. This week's Pit Story of Chinese fans bucking the system to have a good time comes courtesy of vocalist Moritz "Mutz" Hempel from Drone:

Well, we were touring in China and played a show @ the expo plaza in Shanghai. Big fuckin crowd, but sitting on chairs. OK, we knew that this was common in the past, but did not expect that. Anyway…we were shredding and moshing as usual giving a flying fuck about the people sitting, lying or standing. You know, the Chinese audience is always very grateful and responds very well as they do not often get the chance to see western (no country ;)) bands performing. Long story short: they sat.

A couple of guys stood up and started to dance in front of stage but security reproved 'em to be calm and sit the fuck down. They obeyed and sat on their asses. We watched this play a couple o times until a hand full of European metal heads ran towards the stage, screaming and moshin like shit! The security wasn’t sure how to handle these bad ass motherfuckers and did not interfere. Everybody on the plaza used that moment, jumped of their chairs, ran to the stage and started a mosh pit. Out of fuckin nowhere!

We went crazy and started to throw beer into the pit and charred some good old German drinkin' cult with the audience. The stage manager freaked out, yelling NO NO NO no good no good. We replyed YES YES YES very good very good. The rest of the show was legendary and will not be forgotten. For sure, we’ve seen bigger, harder, or more brutal pits, but this one came from the heart and had some kind of symbolic yell for freedom. Freedom to think, dance and shout whatever and whenever you want to. Freedom of opinion, a basic right in OUR constitution. Everybody, who has paid a visit to china, will totally know what I mean! That night, the people did not just stand up for us, but for themselves!

Hexvessel Reveals New Album Details

Today, Svart Records announces September 7th as the release date for Hexvessel's "No Holier Temple," which follows the "Dawnbearer" debut. The following press release was issued about the album:

"Hexvessel's No Holier Temple fuses the acoustic '70s folk vibe of its predecessor into a more psychedelic, electric, doom-folk sound with Manzarek-like keys, screeching & rhythmic Velvet Underground violins, Miles Davis trumpets, and hypnotic freakouts. Weaving the uncanny songs together are the narrative vocals of Mat McNerney - who on this album has matured into the bastard child of Burke Shelley, young Jon Anderson, and Paul Simon - and inspired by the progressive, spaced-out haze of bands like Amon Düül II, Van Der Graaf Generator, and Ultimate Spinach - whose song 'Your Head Is Reeling' they cover with religious abandon - their sound now expands outward from their eerie, signature, ritual-esque intros into a genre-twisting cauldron of otherworldly rock and the late-night, dreamy spoken-word of artists such as Jim Morrison (An American Prayer) and Ken Nordine."

The front cover was created by artist Bastian Kalous and represents the reverence to the native forest and nature that Hexvessel wish to raise awareness and preservation of. The themes of the album "are inspired by the work of great men like Scottish-American naturalist and preservationist John Muir and more recent radical environmental advocates Dave Foreman and Howie Wolke," according to the band.

Frontman and founder Mat McNerney says of the album: “The songs were written specifically to be channeled by a group. This is the sound of a cult, all focused on summoning the same magic, joined in prayer, haunted by the same demons. We actively pushed for a new way to evolve our sound. I purposely strove to make this album a calculated move-on from Dawnbearer. This isn't about using symbols of the occult. This is about a way of living that returns the old gods to their rightful place. We're a family that worships nature through word and sound. We hope you will join us." More...

Sabretung Splits With Bassist, Working On Album

Australia's Sabretung has issued the following announcement about splitting with bassist Tyler Purvis and working on a new album:

"We are about to enter a new area.... Tyler Purvis has announced his departure from the band. Along with Daniel McIness, his contribution was incalcuable. They provided a vitality that is irreplacable. An attitude and a standard that none can replicate. They will feature on our 2nd album: C O L L I S I O N

"We are all extremely proud of what we have achieved with this project. The title of the album is apt. This is what we went through in order to create this monument to the bands legacy.

"Doug Murray, Michael Evans and Benjamin Yates have ultimately made the choice to continue with the band. It will never be what it was, but what it will become will be something else entirely. We aren't even gonna try to replace these guys. We're gonna go into a totally different area and the resultant material will reflect that.

"We look forward to playing the incredible 'C O L L I S I O N' material and beyond... It will be different but maniacal..."

Winterfylleth Reveals New Album Details

Candlelight Records today confirms September 25th as the North American release date for "The Threnody of Triumph," the third full-length album from England ’s Winterfylleth. Recorded in Wales with producer Chris Fielding (Primordial, Electric Wizard), the album delivers ten new conceptual compositions from the black metal quartet.

It represents a continual progression of the band and is a document to our determination to push ourselves further than we have before. On this album we celebrate the lives of those ones lost by contrasting the darkness of loss with the joy of celebrating their memories through the medium of a Threnody; a deathly ode to the memory of ones lost.”

The Chariot Signs With Season Of Mist

Season of Mist just signed a new record deal with U.S. act The Chariot in Europe. The label commented:

"The Chariot are true artists whose determined passions lead them down winding pathways as they buck trends and avoid formulas. The noisy, rambling, shambling, Southern-fried, punk-infused, heavy hardcore band has long rejected the conventions of the genre that surrounds them by refusing to conform to established structures. The Chariot's sound and presentation owe more to At The Drive In, Refused, Nirvana, or eve The Sex Pistols in spirit and vibe than the formulaic processed sounds of their contemporaries."

The band's fifth album is entitled "One Wing" and will be released in Europe through Season of Mist on September 21st. Here are the cover artwork and tracklisting:

Monsterworks Releases Official Video

London-based progressive thrashing band Monsterworks has debuted the video for the song "Free Will" off the band's recently released three-track DR, "Man :: Instincts." The video, which was shot at Earth Terminal Studios in Hampshire, is streaming below.

In the course of its existence Monsterworks has been responsible for albums as far-fetched as a metal space adventure concept album in two parts ("Spacial Operations" - 2007 and "Singularity" - 2009), but more recently has explored philosophical territory ("The God Album" - 2011) and an approach to recording that mostly relies on 'old-school' technology, i.e. 24 track, 2-inch tape, like the classic albums the band grew up with.
