Official Relapse Records press release:

With a pedigree that boasts all three members of New York's cult doom act Unearthly Trance, plus founding Electric Wizard and Ramesses bassist/guitarist Tim Bagshaw, Serpentine Path should immediately top any doom metal fan's want-list. The self-titled debut is an absolutely crushing album which both references and reinterprets its members previous bands but with a decidedly more punishing death metal approach.

The band wrote on their Facebook page: "Electric Wizard have begun work on the follow-up to last year's evil opus Black Masses.

The show will also feature previews of the new songs and (at last!) specially filmed sequences for the video show and more to be announced."

Demons & Wizards - Drums Recorded By B Jarzombek

Acording to a update posted in his website Bobby Jarzombek was working on the new Demons & Wizards as well with Roc Rock, here are his words:

"Hey all,
We're already two weeks into the New Year - high time to fill you in on what's been cooking and what's in store for the immediate future.

Last month I flew out to Tampa, Florida to record my drum tracks for the new Demons & Wizards CD. This was my first time recording at the famous Morrisound Studios and it was great working with Jim Morris. He's an excellent engineer/producer and gets some KILLER drum tones. Jon (Schaffer) and Hansi (Kuersch) wrote some real cool songs for this one. No release date as of yet though. Another album I recorded drums for a while back, Rob Rock's AFM debut "Holy Hell", should be out in April. My Halford band mate Roy Z co-wrote the tunes, produced and plays guitar on it so you know it's gonna rock!

Speaking of recordings, I recently did an interview with the 'Brazil Under Ice' Iced Earth fansite where I commented on several of my favorite CDs that I played on. Here's the link:

For those of you that don't know, I released my drum video "Performance & Technique" on VHS a year and a half ago. Well, after a year of shooting new footage, editing, authoring, contract negotiations, etc. - it's finally done: My instructional drum DVD "Performance & Technique" has just been released by Warner Bros. Publications and will be making its debut appearance at the NAMM show this week in Anaheim, California from (Thur.) Jan. 20th - (Sun.) 23rd. "P&T" will be getting heavy rotation on the TVs in the Warner Bros. Publications booth (#3500) - so stop by and check it out.

The DVD version of "Performance & Technique" contains footage not included in the original VHS version including 4 bonus segments and PDF transcriptions for DVD-ROM. I will update my website in a couple of weeks with complete descriptions of the new segments and a link to order the "Performance & Technique" DVD.

Last but not least, I will also be making a couple of personal appearances at the NAMM show. I'll be at the Vic Firth Sticks booth (along with a few other drummers) at 3:00pm on Saturday doing a signing session and I'm also performing a drum solo at the Pearl Drums booth at 10:00 on Sunday morning. See you there!

Wizard working on new album

"WIZARD are currently working on the songs for the successor of their 2003 released concept-album "Odin" and will start with the pre-production soon. According to the band, the lyrics will be "Wizard style" again and just as the fans expect them to be. The recording of the album is planned to take place in January/February of 2005 with the release set for May.

On a private note, two anticipated "releases" -or captures?- are taking place within the next few days. Guitarist Michael Maass will be the last of the Wizards to let go of his bachelor's life. His new marital duties are not the reason for him to take a break though. Extension studies and the resulting lack of time will cause him to quit for a while. Standing in for him will be his former Vebrifuge bandmate Dano Boland, who will also be recording the new album with the band.

Last but not least, shouter Sven D' Anna and his beautiful wife are eagerly expecting their first child. We here at the LMP camp do wish both couples ALL THE BEST!!!"
