Novembers Doom - Enter Studio, Begin Work On New Album

On Friday January 16th, NOVEMBERS DOOM will enter recording studio "Belle City Sound" to begin recording their 7th full length CD, to be titled "Into Night's Requiem Infernal". Tracking duties will be handled by Chris Djuricic (Engineer and Novembers Doom bassist), and the mixing of the disc by Dan Swano at Unisound. The band comments:

"We're using the same Recording / Mixing formula we've used on "The Pale Haunt Departure" and "The Novella Reservoir". In our opinion, the combination of Djuricic and Swano creates the perfect sound for us, and we've received nothing but stellar reviews of sound quality from this combination in the past.

Metallica - To Be Inducted Into Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame announced its 2009 Inductees, one of them being Metallica. On April 4, 2009, the Induction Ceremony will take place in Cleveland for the first time since 1997. The 2009 Induction Ceremony will be broadcast live on Fuse TV.

According to a Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame press release, Metallica is the most successful heavy metal band of the past quarter centry. Metallica's line-up has primarily consisted of drummer Lars Ulrich, rhythm guitarist, vocalist James Hetfield, and lead guitarist Kirk Hammett, as well as current bass player Robert Trujillo. Longtime bassists for the band, the late Cliff Burton, and Jason Newsted, are also being inducted. Metallica's early releases included fast tempos, instrumentals, and aggressive musicianship that placed them as one of the "big four" of the thrash metal subgenre alongside Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax. The band earned a growing fan base in the underground music community and critical acclaim, with the 1986 release "Master of Puppets" described as one of the most influential and "heavy" thrash metal albums. The band achieved substantial commercial success with its self-titled 1991 album, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. With this release the band expanded its musical direction resulting in an album that appealed to a more mainstream audience.

God Dethroned - Announce New Guitarist

Dutch metallers God Dethroned have issued the following update:

"You guys already knew that Roel is back in the band after 8 years of absence. Again we have a new band member in the ranks of God Dethroned. Already somewhere in 2008 it became clear that Isaac and the band would follow their own seperate paths again. Everything for our own private reasons, so we said goodbye as friends. Then we decided to record the new album as a 3 piece and look for a new guitar player later.

A few weeks ago we auditioned Susan Gerl (Murder Syndicate) and she proved to be the right person for the band. Professional attitude and a 100% metalhead, exactly what we were looking for. You can see her live in action at our first show of the year in Den Bosch (Holland) on March 21.

"XIII", Trepalium's third album, will be released in February in France, Benelux and Switzerland only. But those of you fellow Europeans who live by the French borders should definitely come and check the band when they're on tour with Gojira!"

Wolf - New Song Online

Century Media press release:

Sweden's masters of kick-ass heavy metal Wolf are about to return in full metallic glory with their brand-new album "Ravenous" cover artwork]. As a first glimpse at what to expect of the highly anticipated new effort the song "Curse You Salem" has now been posted at MySpace, bang your head on this one!

The band reveals more about the track: "'Curse You Salem' is a genuine Wolf song. We think it's got all the elements our listeners demand from us and we're certain our fans will listen to it and go "Hell yes, that's Wolf"! We felt that while writing it, and bringing it to life while recording it was a blast. It will most certainly be included in our live-set. The song deals with the witch hunts that took place in Salem, Massachusetts somewhat 300 years ago and the lyrics are written according to actual events as well as real people connected to the events that took place. This song & topic fits Wolf like a spiked wristband on Kerry King!"

Lord Belial - Announce Indefinite Hiatus

Taken straight from the band's website, Lord Belial issued the following statement:

"January 2009; Lord Belial has quit all their activities. All future gigs are cancelled. We would like to thank all fans, bands we have played with, labels, organizers and everyone involved in the band for the past 17 years!

The main reason for this is the hearing problem (tinnitus) that has grown into a quite big problem for Micke Backelin the last years... The other members in the band were not forced to put an end to the band but instead they mutually agreed that finding another drummer was not a solution for the future. Anyhow, if Micke's hearing will be at least a little bit recovered after a break from music and especially live appearances for some time, we really hope that we can continue where we ended.

Belphegor - Hard At Work On New Material

Brachial metal outfit Belphegor are in the final stages of the writing process for their upcoming, as of yet untitled album, the follow up to 2008's "Bondage Goat Zombie".

Posted by Helmuth on the official site: "Yeah, brothers and sisters, currently we're working on nine sound collages. We started directly in April 2008 after the "Bondage Goat Zombie" release, to create the new compositions/arrangements for the eight Werk, 6sikk6 songs basically completely finished. Words can't really describe how enthusiastic and motivated we are, to get into the studio and record this monster, it feels great to be creative again. Nefastus will be responsible for the drums on that album, he also blasted on "Pestapokalypse VI". He is an old friend to the Belphegor family. We rehearse day and night since December to make it as tight and monumental as possible, stay tuned demons... hell awaits!"
