ust one month after the departure of ex-drummer Riky, AVULSED is proud to announce the joining of a new drummer to their ranks.
After testing three excellent drummers, the decision was taken in favour of Osckar (Oscar Bravo) which proved to be not only the best drummer, but also, and very important as well, great qualities as a person as well as the necessary dedication for the band, which will undoubtely inject fresh and renewed hopes.
Osckar is one of the best drummers on the Spanish Metal scene which also plays in the legendary Heavy Metal band SOBREDOSIS and also on NIGHTFEAR as well as recently departed from melodic Death Metallers ATMOSPHERE GREY.
Here you can see a short video taken during our first official rehearsal with Osckar where he already played the first 5 songs he learned for the test.
After one year and half of profitable cooperation with Norwegian artist Tiril Skardal, both The Way Of Purity and the singer decided to part ways. The split has been amicable and it's only due to different goals and directions in respective artistic visions.
Bass player xWithout Namex stated: "We had great time with Tiril and we thank her for the great job that she has done for The Way Of Purity. We wish her the best for her artistic career, but now we have to turn page and go ahead with our incredible new singer Marja Panic".
Marja Panic already started working on some new songs and will be part of the creation of TWOP's third album including the promotion of "Equate" as well.
Marja Panic stated:
"My name is Marja and I live with the death in the heart.
My deepest roots are in nature. No matter who I am, where I live, or what kind of life I lead, I will remain irrevocably linked with the rest of creation.
Nature, give me one chance and every action will be for you.
You are my reality, I will be your gold.
I will summon Tsunami and Earthquke cause I fell like you, with the death in my heart, since that dirty scap of meat surfaced from the Sea and screamed at you " I am humanity".
This is what pushed our hearts to death.
My God, withness what I can do. I can scream the illness away and make them new."

The Australian melodic doom/death metal recording project Subterranean Disposition has agreed to a deal with the Canadian underground label Hypnotic Dirge Records known for acts such as netra, Ekove Efrits, The Foetal Mind, and Exiled From Light among others to release the upcoming self-titled debut album in late summer 2012. Subterranean Disposition is a one man project headed by veteran musician Terry Vainoras, known for being involved in numerous projects within the Australian metal scene over the years such as The Eternal, Cryptic Darkness, and Insomnius Dei among others.
Originally inspired by and conceived as a follow up to the music Mark Kelson had written for his and Terrys Collaboration on the Insomnius Dei album Illusions of Silence, the forthcoming self titled Subterranean Disposition album explores further the use of dissonance and ambience, lending more dynamics to the long passages of darkness and light, crafted from the influence of early 90s doom metal with forward thinking embellishments in song writing , in comparison to the likes of Cult of Luna and Bohren und der club of Gore as evidenced in the first released track The Most subtle of storms.
In speaking about the signing with Hypnotic Dirge, Terry Vainoras had this to say: "I am overjoyed to be joining the great roster of bands at HDR, I feel that there is an cool aesthetic and work ethic kinship between the band and label and I am very much looking forward to working side by side with them to release this long awaited debut this summer."
"Galaico's sign" is the second album of Lughum.

Music tremendously epic and powerful at once. Lyrics that are about the gods of the ancient Galaicos, about battles and warriors. Legends and stories of old Galician people. Nature, rage, magic and freedom come together again to create a soundtrack exciting about free spirits and warriors who love nature and power.

BILOCATEs bassist Hani Al Abbadi commented on the deal: Its an honor to join Code666 roster and a step forward in BILOCATEs musical career, 'Summoning the Bygones' has the most intense and best material weve done so far. We are pleased to release it with a sub-label of one of the biggest musical companies in Italy Aural Music.
'Summoning The Bygones' is an old vision with a totally new arrangement, we took the tracks and rewrote many parts of their music and lyrics from scratch but kept the old spirit that everyone enjoyed in 'Dysphoria', the album will remind our fans of what weve given them before but they will surly feel the change it has many passages and will carry you into a heavy, fast, dark oriental Metal journey, commented vocalist Ramzi Essayed.
Added Code666 label manager Emi: "Having been a personal long-time fan of the band, there was no way we would let this chance slip past us to sign them for the new album. As a label we haven't signed many Oriental Metal, but in BILOCATE we have found a high quality addition to our roster and are looking forward to working with the entire BILOCATE team in the future!.
The album also includes a fully modified version of "Days Of Joy" under a new name "Hypia" (which is actually the very first name this song had originally when it was composed in 2003), in addition to a brand new song and a cover of "Dead Emotion" from one of the legends in Doom/Gothic Metal PARADISE LOST taken from their legendary album Gothic rearranged totally in BILOCATE style, its a way of celebrating 20 years from the release of this amazing record that created a whole new Metal genre.

"Umskiptar", the new album from
BURZUM will see North American release on May 22. Finding inspiration from the verses of famous Scandinavia poem Voluspa, Umskiptar is a return-to-roots album.
Says the controversial musician: The vocals are more important than on any previous album with a total of 66 stanzas making up the albums lyrics. Umskiptar expands BURZUMs ongoing influence of Nordic folk, but for this album adds more traditional heavy metal, signature BURZUM composition, and a keener emphasis on vocal delivery once again presented in Vikernes native tongue. Umskiptar (or Metamorphoses) follows the historical story that details the creation of the world and its end as dictated to Odin, a recurring character in BURZUMs lyrics. Umskiptar follows 2011s Fallen. Said Decibel Magazine, pounding, primitive rhythms are lashing by fizzing, frostbitten guitar which swirls in squalls around Vikernes inhuman, agonizing screech; a chilling mesmerizing, unflinching mirror on a profoundly troubled soul.
