Agonizer - Pasi Kärkkäinen Leaves Band

Hello everyone.

This is Pasi writing the news. As in Pasi the vocalist of Agonizer. I write this news to announce that from now on I will be the ex-vocalist of Agonizer. I will be as forthcoming as possible for my reasons to leaving. After you read this please don't go bugging the band or myself asking why this happened.

A little over a year ago at Spinefeast festival I had a strong lack of motivation to be a singer and also disbelief in my own skills and wether they are good enough. I discussed it with my wife and also with the rest of the band and decided that I would give this band a real effort for a while and then see what happens.

This winter that feeling of failure came again probably as a result of my over growing problems with my throat. My voice would just not function as it used to. Regardless my problems being real or just psychological I started to loose the motivation and started to wonder about continuing. I have always enjoyed making songs and playing them to the audience, but I never enjoyed the fame side of the band as I am a bit of a recluse if you will. Also, my daughter was born in the spring and it just pushed everything else aside, including the band. Together these things influenced the need to talk with the other members about my future in the band. I told them that I would like to resign from this band and concentrate on my personal life and daughter to the fullest.

Pantheist - Debut Album To Be Reissued And Upcoming Gigs

UK metallers Pantheist have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:

"Greetings from the English summer of doom. Since the constant weather fluctuations, incessant rain followed by brief spells of sun and then dark clouds etc don't give us much opportunity to enjoy the summer (in a most un-doomly way), we decided to sit behind our laptop instead and give you a small update about what has been going on in our camp lately.

I have been informed today by Rami that the "O Solitude" reissue has been finally sent for printing, and it will be available in a few weeks time. This critically acclaimed (so I've been told, I'm not making this up) debut album will feature stunning new artwork with cold natural landscapes (literally, as the photographs have been taken at the Black Park near Slough under freezing weather conditions) from our in-house artist, Cheryl Pinnock. We will notify you when this long out-of-print album is again available for ordering.

Belphegor - New Album Title, Tracklist And Cover Art Revealed

Original news, posted on 11.06.2009

Black/ Death Metal titans Belphegor have set "Walpurgis Rites - Hexenwahn" as the title of their 8th full length studio album due out in October 2009. "Walpurgis Rites - Hexenwahn" marks the follow up to the groups extremely successful 2008 release "Bondage Goat Zombie".

Here's what frontman Helmuth has to say: "The title fits perfect to the whole concept, the lyrical themes. Its typical Belphegor, involving symbology and double meanings. I have always been fascinated by the idea and atmosphere surrounding witches, their magic, the insane sabbath/ ceremonies - and all the obscurity that goes with it. With the nine sound collages, the verses, artwork we continue our descent into the depths of musical hell."

Original news, posted on 11.06.2009

Official press release

The creative force behind the genre-defying, legendary metal titans Fear Factory, guitarist Dino Cazares, has returned with a mind-blowing, scathing new offering that shatters the boundaries of conventionality with unrelenting intensity, precision and speed.

This pummeling new offering, "Bringer Of Plagues", which is set for a July 28th North American release, redefines the meaning of aggression and takes extreme to an all new level. Neal has undoubtedly proven that he is the perfect fit for the role as he delivers a debut performance for the ages.

Italian metallers Hour Of Penance have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:

"Hour Of Penance will enter "16th Cellar" studio in Rome on August 27th with Stefano Morabito as sound engineer to start tracking the instruments of their fourth yet untitled new album, follower of the highly acclaimed 2008's "The Vile Conception" released by the renowned Unique Leader Records.

Commented frontman and guitar player Giulio Moschini: "After less then a year of songwriting we're finally ready to hit the studio and record the new album. We're very satisfied with the results of the songwriting sessions, everything went smooth and all the songs came out in a spontaneous way. We have enough material to record almost two albums but as we did with the previous album "The Vile Conception", only the best 10 songs will appear on the new opus. This time we will work with Stefano Morabito to get a more "live" approach and a more natural sound to the new album which will embrace a lot of new and different features from the past releases. I'm sure our loyal fans will not be disappointed when they hear the final result!"

Pelican - New Album Details

Official press release

The mighty Pelican are in the studio putting the finishing touches on their fourth studio album, entitled "What We All Come To Need". What guitarist Laurent Lebec has dubbed "the most perfect synthesis of everything we've done to date, sonically", this new album is a giant step forward within the complex, intricate, beautiful and crushing sound Pelican is famous for. The album features more guests than have ever appeared on a Pelican album before: Greg Anderson of Sunn O))), Aaron Turner of Isis, Ben Verellen of Harkonen and Helms Alee and Allen Epley from The Life & Times And Shiner. Content-wise, Lebec says "There is a current of inspiration that feels particular to each album's music and titles. Though we lack a singer, the song names are often conceptual. This new album speaks to a rapidly decaying world, the fulfillment we find in each other, as well as the resolve to move beyond disillusionment". If the recent "Ephemeral" EP is any indication of what's to come, we can expect nothing less than the apex of Pelican's creative output.
