Necrophobic parts ways with vocalist Tobias Sidegård

Posted by GageT on Monday, October 14, 2013 at 12:04 PM (PST)

necrophobicSwedish black metal act Necrophobic has announced that they’ve officially parted ways with their vocalist, Tobias Sidegård. This came after a Swedish appeals court found Sidegård guilty of assaulting his wife and given a prison sentence of six months. Originally, he was found guilty of “gross violation of a woman’s integrity” (whatever that is supposed to mean in Swedish law) and given eighteen months, but the appeals court brought the sentence down.

The band released a statement on their Facebook page today saying:

“Tobias is no longer a member of NECROPHOBIC. The verdict following his trial regrettably left us, the band, with no other choice. As stated before, NECROPHOBIC do not accept or tolerate domestic violence in any way.

We will now search for a replacement.”

This awkwardly comes right before the band releases their seventh album, Womb Of Lilithu, on October 29 via Season of Mist.

Art of Dying: Graphic Noise – Where metal meets art

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, August 22, 2013 at 10:25 PM (PST)
0000126_seth-siro-anton-the-tongues-kiss_330I’ve been a bit mopey this week from the news that both The Chariot AND God Forbid are breaking up, but this news item in my inbox cheered me up considerably. All you rockers, ghouls and ladies of the night with a taste for macabre art and a love of H-E-A-V-Y-M-E-T-A-L need to read this press release!:

Season of Mist label owner Michael Berberian has launched Graphic Noise, an e-gallery offering rare and exclusive works of art and prints from some of the most influential and groundbreaking visual artists/illustrators in metal today. Among the artists involved with the project from it’s launch are Arik Roper (SLEEP), Zbigniew M. Bielak (WATAIN, GHOST), Valnoir (PESTE-NOIR), and Seth Siro Anton (SEPTICFLESH, MOONSPELL). Graphic Noise recently launched an official website and e-store, which can be found HERE.”

Regarding the new project, Michael Berberian said: “Blame my parents. They are the ones who were dragging me into museums in Florence at the age of 6. And never stopped. Not unlike some parents who forcefed their kids into learning music theory and piano, they “taught” me how to appreciate art. I can walk into a museum and recognize, understand, and talk about art history, to some degree. As an adult, I even started collecting on a small scale. Japanese woodblock printing among others. It’s not unlike any other collecting habit, you analyze, buy, auction, trade from fellow collectors that you meet online or during your travels. So It’s always been a part of me. But it never occurred to me to do the link between my job – label manager, in the metal world, for now almost 15 years, and the art world. Until now.”

KELLS announce Euro headlining tour

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, July 26, 2013 at 12:09 PM (PST)

imageKELLS from Lyon, France are the oddball nu-metal influenced band who truly rock. It helps that they don’t only have one source of inspiration or seem to care about “genre” as much as being open. KELLS are known for their blend of modern and older metal with quirky textures and a sense of groove lost on many other bands obsessed with speed. KELLS are also known for featuring the show stopping legs and at times throaty or hypnotic range of vocalist Virginie Goncalves. I discovered them about a year ago and kept an eye on them, hoping they’d start making a bigger splash.

KELLS have now announced a new European tour. The trek, which starts on September 13th, will see KELLS follow-up recent runs supporting APOCALYPTICA with a run of  headline dates across France, Belgium, and Luxembourg. A full list of tour dates can be found below.

KELLS are touring in support of their latest album, Anachromie. Anachromie is streaming in its entirety at the KELLS official Bandcamp page  and should be played loudly.

Music Video: The Dillinger Escape Plan – “When I Lost My Bet”

Posted by SeanB on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at 5:40 PM (PST)

dillingeroneofusJersey mathcore pioneers, The Dillinger Escape Plan, have released a brand new music video for the song “When I Lost My Bet.”  The song is taken from the band’s upcoming fifth studio album, One Of Us Is The Killer.  It is due to be released May 14th via the band’s own Partysmasher Inc. imprint.

To check out “When I Lost My Bet” click right here (I threw another new song called “Prancer” in there with it too). THIS JUST IN: THE VIDS WON”T EMBED SO JUST CLICK THE PICS AFTER THE JUMP

The Dillinger Escape Plan chose to have longtime producer Steve Evetts record the One Of Us Is The Killer, with additional production at guitarist/co-founder Ben Weinman’s studio. Mastering was done by Tom Baker.  When asked about the album,  vocalist Greg Puciato had the following to say about the recording process:

“Dillinger is a different beast in tracking than most normal bands. Even Steve has told me that there’s no other band that he has recorded that requires this amount of attention to detail. We take a longer amount of time to do one thing than most bands take to do ten. At this point, talking to Ben about it, we only do this once every three years on average so ten years from now I don’t want to look back and think, ‘Fuck man, we should have finished that one three weeks earlier!’ Who cares? You want it to be right and you want it to be the thing that was the closest to what your vision actually was.”

Puciato also stated on the direction:

I can hear [the influence of old punk and hardcore records] a lot. I can definitely hear that in some of the riffs, which are really aggressive. It’s not a blatant hardcore record or anything like that. I actually think this is the most all over the place and weirdest record we’ve ever written. It’s the first one since I joined the band where Ben has sent me songs and I’ve been like, ‘What the fuck is happening? This sounds like a beehive!'”

Posted by tyrusrunyan on Friday, November 16, 2012 at 10:02 AM (PST)

Swedish black metal band Watain have signed a deal with Century Media the band was formerly signed to Season Of Mist. You can read comments about it below.

Watain comments: “We are writing this from a magical place of desolation and desert-like vastness, where wondrous things are at this very moment taking place. Things that will come to colour our world as well as yours in the strangest hues for many years to come. We are entering this new chapter of Watain with a will and confidence to make it the most diverse and rememberable so far. And with the things that we have in mind for the future, it looks like it will be just so. Just wait and see, f***ers! Loud and terrible shall the trumpets of Devils sound…”

Antje Lange,General Manager Century Media Europe commented: “Century Media is massively excited to work with Watain. This band has it all: charisma, the firm will to conquer the world, and an authenticity you rarely find these days. Mixed with their creativity and musical impact – this band will make it to the top. They are a healthy slap in the face for any Metal Bourgeois. We are ready to kill for them!”

Don Robertson, President Century Media USA stated: “I am very proud and excited to welcome Watain to the Century Media family. There are few bands that remind me of when I first discovered metal as a teenager that could give me the same feeling of extreme release and evil such as Slayer, Venom and Merciful Fate did. Watain is one of those rare bands and I look forward to being a part of their growing career and helping today’s future metalhead find their way!”

Music Video: Nothnegal – “Sins of Our Creations”

Posted by SeanB on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 7:29 AM (PST)

Maldivian melodic death metal band Nothnegal have released a music video for the song “Sins of Our Creations.”  The song comes from the band’s debut full length album Decadence which was released early this year on Season of Mist.

You can check out the video by clicking here.

Nothnegal guitarist Hilarl has commented on the album earlier in the year:

“‘Decadence’ is NOTHNEGAL’s first official studio release and the first release featuring the current lineup, with Fufu handling both the guitar and vocal duties, Marco on keyboards and Kevin on drums.

“The writing process of ‘Decadence’ began in summer 2010 and has been quite a challenge for us as we have taken time to do a lot of experimentation on the sound shifting more towards thrash and progressive metal with industrial elements making it entirely different from the sound we had on our 2009 four-track demo, ‘Antidote Of Realism’. With a completely new and original sound and attitude we feel like we starting again from scratch as we believe Nothnegal have finally discovered its sound with ‘Decadence’.”
