RAZOR

Cenk A. - 22/11/2005 Top

Original RAZOR bassist Mike Campagnolo has returned to the group in time for their appearance at the Montreal Metal Massacre on December 10 at Le Spectrum in Montreal. Mike will also be joining the recording process for the new RAZOR CD, due out in 2006 on The End Records in North America and Mausoleum Records in Europe. A DVD of live material from the '80s is also expected to be released in 2006, along with the reissues of "Shotgun Justice" (1990) and "Open Hostility" (1991). Look for RAZOR to do some extensive touring of Europe and North America next year, possibly with PILEDRIVER (who are playing at the Montreal Metal Massacre as well) or with ONSLAUGHT and HEATHEN (an offer is reportedly on the table).

In related news, RAZOR frontman Bob Reid's solo project BOBNOXIOUS will be releasing their Christmas album, "Ho Ho Ho", on December 1. The CD contains seven tunes "to warm your chest/nuts" and is being released in a limited edition of 1,000 copies, with all proceeds going to The London Food Bank.

DEVOURMENT

Cenk A. - 22/11/2005 Top

Reformed Texas-based underground death metallers DEVOURMENT have uploaded another new song, entitled "Tomb of Scabs" at www.myspace.com/devourment. The track comes off the group's brand new album, "Butcher the Weak", available now via the band's official web site, www.devourment.us. .

"Butcher the Weak" track listing:

01. Butcher the Weak
02. Masturbating at the Slab
03. Serial Cocksucker
04. Tomb of Scabs
05. Autoerotic Asphyxiation
06. Anal Electrocution
07. Fuck Her Head Off
08. Babykiller

DEVOURMENT recently announced that Majewski has taken over the vocal duties in the group after the departure of original frontman Wayne Knupp. Ruben Rosas, who had initially taken Knupp's place on the band's 1999 full-length release "Molesting the Decapitated" (United Guttural), has moved from vocals to full-time guitar duties, replacing original guitarist Brian "Brain" Wynn. In addition, former SUTURE and current SCARLINE/RHOME drummer Erik Park has replaced longtime DEVOURMENT skinsman Brad Fincher.

MORTICIAN

Cenk A. - 22/11/2005 Top

Poland's Gazeta Wyborcza is reporting that MORTICIAN vocalist/bassist Will Rahmer is likely to spend the next few weeks at a Polish jail while the prosecutors prepare an indictment against him for robbery with a dangerous weapon. The judges from the Polish town of Krosno Odrzanskie (where Rahmer is currently being held) have accepted a proposal from the prosecutors to detain Rahmer for up to three months in accordance with the Polish law.

In addition to the charge of robbery with a dangerous weapon, the prosecutors will likely charge Rahmer for resisting arrest and assault on a police officer.

Rahmer, 36, was arrested by the Polish police after he allegedly assaulted a taxi driver with a knife and stole a taxi cab following the group's performance in the Polish city of Zielona Gora on Sunday (Nov. 13).

Rahmer reportedly called a cab after MORTICIAN's concert in Zielona Gora (which the other MORTICIAN members performed without Rahmer) and requested to be taken to the Berlin airport so that he could fly back to the United States. He allegedly paid the driver 200 euros for the ride, but apparently went berserk when he was unable to reach someone on his mobile phone. Rahmer allegedly proceeded to attempt to gain control of the vehicle, in the process causing a small cut to the cabdriver's neck with his knife. The driver managed to escape and contacted the police. He was subsequently taken to the hospital, where he received two stitches. In the meantime, Will stole the car and drove himself to the Polish/German border crossing in Swiecko, where he allegedly got into a scuffle with the authorities before being detained.

At the time of his arrest, Rahmer was reportedly not carrying any additional cash or a valid passport. He was, however, in possession of at least one knife and a set of knucklers, according to Gazeta Lubuska.

Speaking to the police through a translator, Rahmer apparently offered a very different account of what transpired to the version given by the taxidriver.

MORTICIAN were in the middle of a European tour with BLOOD RED THRONE and AKERCOCKE when the incident took place. The group are said to be continuing the trek, with members of BLOOD RED THRONE and AKERCOCKE assisting with bass and vocal duties.

DISSECTION

Cenk A. - 22/11/2005 Top

Reactivated Swedish death metallers DISSECTION have parted ways with recently recruited bassist Haakon Forwald (a.k.a. General K; MYRKSKOG, DISIPLIN). The group's official statement on the matter reads as follows:

"As a result of bassist Haakon Forwald's family situation back home in Norway and his initiatory work with the Norwegian cell division of the Misanthropic Luciferian Order (MLO), it has been decided that Forwald will step back from the position as DISSECTION's bass player in order to focus on his esoteric and exoteric work in Norway. DISSECTION wish Forwald the best of luck on the path to anti-cosmic gnosis and thank him for his time with the band. This will not affect the two upcoming shows in Sweden and Germany booked for December and January [December 30 at Kolingsborg (The Shrine) in Stockholm, Sweden and January 28 at the Winternoize Festival in Osnabrück, Germany] where DISSECTION for the last time ever will perform a set based solely on the old albums! Bass player candidates already exist and are currently being tried out in rehearsals!"

DISSECTION recently reacquired the rights to their classic "Storm of the Lights Bane" album from Nuclear Blast. In addition, Black Lodge's licensing rights to the group's 1993 debut, "The Somberlain", will expire in December. Both albums are currently out of print and will be re-issued by the label to which DISSECTION will sign for their next album.

DISSECTION entered the studio on February 2 to begin recording their long-awaited third album, the group's first release since "Storm of the Light's Bane". The recording is taking place at Black Syndicate Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, with DISSECTION mainman Jon Nödtveidt's brother Emil Nödtveidt (a.k.a. THE DEATHSTARS' Nightmare Industries) and Skinny Kangur at the helm. Eleven songs are being recorded for the album and the material is being regarded by the band as "a work of sonic black magic, actively channelling the anti-cosmic current 218." Rough-mix versions of two new songs from DISSECTION's forthcoming CD are available for download on their official web site. Check out the tracks "Xeper-I-Set" and "Starless Aeon".

DISSECTION are currently in negotiations with several labels for the upcoming release, but the recordings are being completely financed by the band itself independent of any record company. A final decision about the group's new label home is expected to be made soon.

VOIVOD

Cenk A. - 22/11/2005 Top

VOIVOD drummer Michel "Away" Langevin has issued the following update to fans regarding their upcoming album and other projects for 2006:

"Dear Voivodians, we will do our best to make a great record that Piggy would be proud of as we worked very hard for the past two years on the new songs. Jasonic has already put down his bass tracks and Glen Robinson [producer; ANNIHILATOR, NASHVILLE PUSSY] and I will edit Piggy's guitar tracks in December. We will track my drum parts and Snake's vocals in Montreal in January. Then we'll mix it, get it mastered and released as soon as possible via The End Records in USA, Nuclear Blast in Europe and Hypnotic-Linus/Universal in Canada.

"In other news, I am still working on my long overdue art book, coming out on Troubleman Unlimited in 2006. Also coming out next year, 'DVOD-2', our second DVD which will be covering the '90s line-up with Eric Forrest. Thanks for your patience!

"P.S. If you get a chance to see the movie 'Metal: A Headbanger's History', it is great and has a short interview with Piggy in it. We saw the Montreal premiere a few weeks ago at the invitation of Sam and Scott, the filmmakers, and they introduced the movie by dedicating it to Piggy, which was very cool of them."

BELPHEGOR

The following message was read on the band´s official page:

All right, last days before we hit the studios. We're all set, most of the 10 compositions/arrangements are finished in a rudimentary form. Equipment is packed, new cymbals arrived and cables/strings/plecs a.o.have been fixed. Andy Classen (Stage One Studios / Kassel Germany) will be at the helm as producer, the four recording sessions and mixing/mastering process should be complete by middle of February ´06, and the yet untitled album's release date will hopefully be sometime in April/May of 2006.

As for the new album, we are doing everything we can to make sure it's the heaviest, most intense - monumental one BELPHEGOR ever made. We never rehearsed as often as for these 10 sound-collages, hell yeah,.....we feel that this will be the mightiest BELPHEGOR jewel yet. Well, we will let you in on the progress being made and give you an insight into the recording processes, reports will be posted on this site on a regular basis...

US death metallers VEHEMENCE have decided to quit. Here´s the official statement from the band:

"8 years after it all started, we decided that now is the time to throw in the towel. It was fun, and we would like to thank all the people who have supported us along the way. Vehemence was and is a huge part of our lives, but at this point its time to start fresh. The death of VEHEMENCE has since spawned 3 new bands from its ex members. ABIGAIL WILLIAMS featuring Mark, Andy and Bjorn of VEHEMENCE (www.myspace.com/abigailwilliams), HE WHO BINDS HIMSELF featuring Nathan (www.myspace.com/hewhobindshimself), and as John stated ´I´m looking for members for a new band and I am also available for touring. Currently I´m also affiliated with several other side projects which I will release soon.´

"We still have a batch of new shirts coming this year, as well as a new remixed version of our first self released disc entitled ´The Thoughts From Which I Hide´, that will be available exclusively at www.vehemence.com. VEHEMENCE may do shows every now and then, but will not be a full time band. Just keep checking our website as that will still be up and running."

THANATOS

Cenk A. - 11/11/2005 Top

Long-running Dutch death/thrash metal band THANATOS have uploaded audio samples of the two tracks that will appear on their upcoming seven-inch single, tentatively due early next year via the Singapore-based Konqueror Records. The two songs — "And Jesus Wept" and a cover of DARK ANGEL's "The Burning of Sodom" — were recorded and mixed at Excess studio in Rotterdam, Holland and can be previewed at this location. You can also take a look to the cover artwork at the bands official page: www.thanatos.info

ENTOMBED

Cenk A. - 11/11/2005 Top

Swedish metallers ENTOMBED have set "Serpent Saints" as the title of their new album, due on June 6, 2006 via Threeman Recordings. The upcoming CD will be the group's first without the contributions of guitarist Uffe Cederlund, who left the band in September.

Speaking to Sweden's Close-Up magazine, ENTOMBED guitarist Alex Hellid had the following to say about the upcoming album, "Over the years we've built something, a name that is much bigger than its individual parts. Living up to that name is something we take very seriously. Of course, we feel an enormous pressure, albeit in a positive way, and a great obligation to maintain [the name] as well as live up to our own and other people's high expectations that come along with putting an ENTOMBED logo on an album."

ENTOMBED have no plans on replacing Cederlund and will continue as a four-piece, with Hellid as the sole guitarist. However, there is a possibility that former ENTOMBED drummer and current THE HELLACOPTERS frontman Nicke Andersson will contribute to the next album.

"I've just talked loosely with Alex and Peter [Stjärnwind, drummer] about it," Andersson told Close-Up. "I haven't really said anything, but they've basically asked me if I would consider being involved in one way or the other. Whether or not that's because Uffe has quit, I have no idea. . . .It's really down to having the time to do it. There are another thousand ideas I want to see through. But if it's possible, it would be a blast to do something [with ENTOMBED]."
