Anathema - News About Two New Albums

The following news comes from Anathema's myspace page.

"Greetings to all…

We have taken all of our recording equipment to a house in England where we have built a studio and begun the first of two records to be released this year. The recording has been going very well.

This first record is a semi-acoustic recording of many of our most loved older tracks. This will be released on Peaceville records. The working title is 'temporary peace.'

The songs to be included on 'temporary peace' are:

Angelica, leave no trace, inner silence, one last goodbye, are you there, fragile dreams, a natural disaster, temporary peace and flying.

The record will be a substantial work, arranged by Danny and performed and produced by the band, recorded and engineered by our own Les Smith, who was responsible for the recordings of 'everything' and the other new songs released online last year.

Sepultura - Busy Writing New Album

Guitarist Andreas Kisser from Brazil's Sepultura has posted the following message:

"We started the writing process for the Sepultura new album today in our studio in Sao Paulo. All the equipament was prepared yesterday by our crew and today we tried some ideas for songs. We will follow kind of the same steps we did in our last album, "Dante XXI", but this time we will be inspired by the book "A Clockwork Orange", first released in 1962 written by Anthony Burgess and it´s a movie, a classic, made by Stanley Kubrik. We will write our soundtrack for this story and Burgess´ life will be an inspiration also to write the music, lyrics and for the artwork.

Shining - Part Ways With Bassist

Swedish metallers Shining has posted the following on the band's myspace page:

Bassist Phil A. Cirone have decided to once again leave Shining. There is absolutely no bad blood him and the band inbetween. Shining thank him eternally for his years of edication and death!

This will not effect our coming ceremonies as Phil will remain a live-musician until a replacement has been found.

We have decided that in the search of a new bassist we are going to hold an audition where we invite you to try out for us. We are not looking for any session-members whatsoever so the place is permanent to whoever might suit the band, thus, the requirements as seen below. We need you to record a videoclip where you show off your skills and send it to us along with a motivation of why you want to join Shining and what you think you could contribute with as both musician and person to the band. We need all applications in hand before the 1st of March as we intend to tour pretty much the rest of the year as well as recording our sixth album. Once we have gone through the material you have sent we will choose the best ones and invite you to Oslo, Norway where we will play a few songs together to see who will become the new bassist of Shining.

3 Inches Of Blood, Decrepit Birth - Drop Off Tour

3 Inches Of Blood has dropped off the remainder of their tour with The Black Dahlia Murder, Hate Eternal, and Decrepit Birth, and has also cancelled their subsequent Canadian run with Rammer. Here's a statement from the band:

"Unfortunately we've had to drop off the remainder of tour with The Black Dahlia Murder, Hate Eternal, and Decrepit Birth. We will also be missing our Canadian dates, Feb 16-23, with Rammer.

It was not an easy decision to make, but due to the rapidly declining weather in the remaining areas of the tour we have decided that it would be unsafe to continue touring in these conditions. We have had a great time with all of the bands on this tour, so it is especially disappointing to have to cancel our remaining appearances. We are committed to rescheduling our appearances in all the cities we will be missing, but when the weather is warmer and the roads less treacherous. Sorry to disappoint anybody, but we would rather stay safe and live to play another day"

With all of the festivals and package tours that go through America, I've been talking with our manager and agent for over 10 years now about doing something that focuses on the more progressive, musician-oriented side of hard rock and metal. I decided it was time to stop talking the talk, lace up and finally walk the walk"
