16:21 - mz what makes MS so great is the presence of Mahdi. Make MS Great Again
16:19 - Nimlot Spirit of Metal is like a rolling black metal logo?
15:58 - Karlabos I joined MA and Spirit Of Metal. MA has a good recommendation subforum, I'll give them that. But on the other hand there's not much more than that... Spirit of Metal is like this [link] so...
14:55 - Apothecary I can guarantee you that I would not know at least 75% of the metal bands that I do today had it not been for this site
14:54 - Apothecary We care about giving those who are just starting out and getting going their time of day and the exposure they deserve. It isn't JUST MS that does this, but we do seem to be where that attitude is strongest
14:54 - Apothecary What makes Metal Storm so great, and what has kept me around here, is that we focus on the metal scene AS IT IS EMERGING. We don't just care about pimping bands that are already well established and that people know about already
14:10 - Kuroboshi Me one of them. Proud (mostly) lurker since 10 years back. Mostly too busy with regular life to have time to review etc.

"Exactly 10 years ago (1998), I (Luke Kenny) was given the opportunity to Re-mix 2 songs for the legendary Death Metal Band "Morbid Angel". For a lot of metal fans this was their first taste to my unique sound and it really helped me get started.
After such a positive response to my (Morbid Angel) re-mixes I was offered a 4 album deal with Earache Records which I spent the next 10 years completing, amongst 100's of live performances all over the world.
With the creation of our own record label "Berzerker Industries" (for the sole purpose of releasing our new material), this means we are now in the position to offer a similar opportunity to you. (because we own the copyright)
Vocalist and frontman Luke Kenny from Australian's The Berzerker have posted the following update on the band's official MySpace page:
"Firstly we'd like to say a big thanks to all the guys in New Zealand on showing us a great time. Secondly I'm very excited to tell you that we will be launching our brand new record label "Berzerker Industries" within the next few months. The first release will be our new studio album. (I can't fucking wait!). The only way you'll be able to get hold of this album is by direct mail order via Myspace and our Website. This will NOT be in stores. Also we will be holding a re-mix competition with the winner getting their re-mixed Berzerker version on our new cd. There will also be re-mixes from some of the biggest names in the gabba/speedcore scene. ROOAAGGGGHH!! I will be posting more info about all of this very soon, so stay tuned.
Australian masters of grind The Berzerker have begun work on their fifth studio album, due in an undetermined amount of time later this year through Earache Records. An official 2.26mins video clip featuring footage of some of the early recording sessions can be viewed here

The Berzerker have been forced to cancel their Birmingham show after the club burnt down. The Berzerker himself has this to say:
"As im sure some of your are aware Edward's No.8 club has burnt to the ground. We were set to play there on the 14th of December. We are sorting out a new veune as we speak and details will follow as they are confirmed"
A major fire has destroyed the busy nightclub in Birmingham's city centre. Five hundred people had to be led to safety as the blaze took hold in the early hours at Edward's No.8 club. Ten people were treated for minor injuries but firefighters, who praised nightclub staff for their actions, say all inside the club escaped.
Australian Death/Grind Metal band The Berzerker have decided upon a title for their fourth full length release. The album will be called 'Animosity'. It will be released in March 2007 through Earache Records.
"...The Berzerker continue and develop the theme of hate fuelled lyrics and extreme sonic assault seen in 'World Of Lies' that makes The Berzerker one of the worlds most extreme bands".
Australian Grind/Death/Industrial Metal band The Berzerker have announced a tour of the UK at the end of this year. The Berzerker will be the headlining act for the tour. To play with them will be four other extreme metal bands. They will be Miksha, Nekkrosis, Abgott and Bazooka.
The Berzerker will be juggling upcoming touring with the recording of their upcoming album. They will be recording it around the time of the tour and it will be released in March next year. All the shows on the UK tour will start at 8.00pm. Costs are to be announced.
Here is a list of all the dates:
Dec 03 - The Engineroom, Brighton, England
Dec 04 - The Nexus, Southampton, England

Australian Death/Grind/Industrial band The Berzerker are currently working on a new album. The album will be their fourth and will be released as usual by Earache Records. So far ten tracks have been written, and have been made into 'demo form'. Soon the band will be entering the studio to record the songs properly.
The Berzerker have said that they're trying their best to outdo all their previous works with this album. Frontman/vocallist Luke Kenny comments: "The new material is fucking insane. I sometimes wonder when we start writing if we really can out-do our other releases. I mean, we have already made some of the fastest, most brutal music on the planet, and when people hear the name The Berzerker, they fucking know it!".
