"Yes, it is true folks. Krux will play their last 2 gigs in sweden before they enter the studio to record a new album. This will probably not happen until the winter of 09/10, but with Fredrik Åkessons duties in Opeth and Leif Edling being busy with Candlemass new album in 2009, it is not very likely that the band will be seen on a stage again that soon.
So... Don't miss next week shows in Stockholm - at Harry B James (thursday Jan 29) and in Gävle - at O´Learys (friday Jan 30). Krux promise to play a couple of odd songs from the catalogue to make things more interesting, and you will also see Pär Wiberg from Opeth do his Krux premiere. He replaces Carl Westholm on keys since the doctor is in Africa saving the world."
Sadly we have to announce, what most insiders and fans already know:
British Doom Legend Warning split up after 15 years of existence and two album masterpieces.
The only remaining original member and founder Patrick Walker has provided us with the following statement:
"The decision to discontinue Warning has been both a pain and a purgation to me. For the past two years or so, Warning has been a considerably important part of my life, what with travelling and playing shows, writing new music and a gradual but increasing interest in the band, largely helped by Cyclone Empire's rereleasing of both records and making them for the first time easily obtainable to people.
However, I started the band in 1994. I was a different person when I began playing with Warning; I had different musical objectives; different ideals; different influences and inspirations. Now in order to make music that retains some semblance of integrity and wholeness I realise I need to move on. This shouldn't be thought of as "the end" of something. I have, after all, been the sole remaining original member of the band in its most recent line-up for almost a year now; in this respect Warning is little more than a band name. So before I complete work on what will be the material for the next album, I need a new band; a new context within which to work.
UK metallers Skyclad have announced that they have signed a deal with Scarlet Records.
In other news, the group's upcoming album, "In The... All Together", is due in the spring. The CD was recorded and mixed by Dario Mollo (The Cage, Voodoo Hill) at Damage Inc Studio, in Ventimiglia, Italy during August 2008.
According to a press release: "The new album mixes the usual thrash/speed metal influences with the extraordinary folk melodies that made the band famous all around the world, maintaining a fresh and dynamic approach which gives a strong live dimension to the new songs."
According to the band's website, new Amoral material will be available in February! A single called "Year Of The Suckerpunch" will be released on February 11, and the song will be aired on Finnish radio stations starting this Friday. "Year Of The Suckerpunch" is a song from the upcoming, yet unnamed 4th album which will be released in May. The recordings of the album are now done, and it's going through the mixing process at the moment. Second song on the single will be a Misfits cover, "Dig Up Her Bones"."
UPDATE (thanks to Abattoir)
Finnish metallers Amoral have posted their first single with new vocalist Ari Koivunen, "Year Of The Suckerpunch", on their MySpace page.
A new Lamb Of God track entitled "Set To Fail" is available for streaming at AltPress.com.
"Set To Fail" comes off the new Lamb Of God album, entitled "Wrath", which will be released in North America on February 24 via Epic Records (through Roadrunner Records in other territories). The album was produced by Josh Wilbur and was recorded in studios in New York, Virginia, and New Hampshire.

US metallers Kult Ov Azazel have issued the following update:
"The release date for "Destroying The Sacred" has been delayed until June. We were informed from Arctic Music that the North American distributor has refused to distribute the album due to the cover art. This is the not the first time we have encountered problems likes this with our releases be it the graphic or lyrical content. We have already remedied the situation with a slip insert that will go over the cover art and the only real setback is that the original release date has been pushed back.
The good news however is we have streamed a new track on the Kult Ov Azazel MySpace page. The song is "Storm The Gates" and is track 4 on the forthcoming album. We have also confirmed participation on a Venom tribute split with Teratism. This split vinyl release will be titled "In League With Satan" and released through Negativity Records with a limited run of 666 copies. We are also working on putting together a CD/DVD release to be released later in the year through Arctic Music."
Norwegian metallers 1349 have issued the following update:
"1349 are currently putting their last touch to the bands new album entitled "Revelations Of The Black Flame", follow-up to 2005's "Hellfire". As both "Hellfire" and "Beyond The Apocalypse", the album is recorded at Studio Studio Nyhagen, and co-mixed by none other than Tom Gabriel Fischer. No release date is scheduled as of yet, but the album is due sometime during the 1st half of 2009."
German metallers Symphorce have posted the following update on their MySpace page:
Long time no news right? Well, this is about to change as we have some exciting news for you.
After we took our time to re"phorce" our batteries and think about our future we are ready more than ever to make our next album the possibly best Symphorce album ever. For a couple of months now, the songwriting core of Symphorce, Cede - Marcus - Andy , has come up with some great songs, melodies, hitwonders, chartbreakers, stripsongs, ...whatever you might wanna call it.
We just wanted to let you know, that we're still around (more actively in the background for some songwriting now), but we'll be back with a "Booom!" in mid-2009, with a new label partner, new material and some new surprises. Things you don't expect and still expect from Symphorce!
