DEICIDE quit Euro tour and head home

Deicide have abruptly ended their 'Scars Of The Crucifix' European tour before even playing one date. After a performance at the Dynamo festival on June 5, the band entered the UK but declined to play the London show on Jun 8th- opting instead to fly home to Florida, citing their anger and frustration at the transportation and financial arrangements provided by the tour agent. It does not affect any other shows Deicide have booked in the USA, or their appearance at Wacken.

DECAPITATED: Entertainment Weekly debates scrapped USA tour

Decapitated are featured in an article in US national entertainment bible, Entertainment Weekly. The article explores the controversy of the Decapitated name in the light of the recent decapitation of US citizen Nick Berg at the hands of terrorists - a situation reminiscent of the controversy surrounding the band Anthrax during the anthrax scares of 2001.

For an underground death metal band like Decapitated to be mentioned in the pages of Entertainment Weekly is quite a coup indeed. Yet as brutal and technical a band as they may be, Decapitated are no strangers to mainstream publicity. Since the release of their Earache debut, 'Winds Of Creation', the band has been covered in a host of un-metal publications, including Billboard and Spin.


CULT OF LUNA studio report

Cult of Luna are hard at work in Tonteknik Studio, Sweden, recording the follow up to the masterpiece that was 'The Beyond'. Most of the basic tracks have been laid down and some of the vocals, and the material so far is sounding IMMENSE. The band sent this quick update from the studio....

"Our first recording session is over, two weeks of really hard work. Almost everything, on this first batch of five songs, is done. Things have gone really well and we've surprisingly stuck to the schedule. The only thing missing on these five songs is the electronic stuff, which will be added during the next session. During this 'inbetween sessions time', we will put the final touches on the last few songs, getting them ready for recording.......and if necessary redo some overdubs on the other songs too. We might be getting some cool and unexpected guest appearances on some songs! Stay tuned, more news from Tonteknik Studio will come in the near future.


CATHEDRAL unlock ’The Serpent’s Gold’

From Monday 21st June, fans in the UK and Europe were able to buy the immense double CD package 'The Serpent's Gold' from seminal doomsters CATHEDRAL . This collection, fully endorsed & compiled by the band, covers all of their time with Earache and at over 2 1/2 hours long it contains 27 tracks with 11 of those being previously unreleased. In keeping with all Cathedral releases the artwork has been created by Dave Patchett and contains a fascinating interview with Lee Dorrian and a track by track guide for disc 2 by the riff-meister Gaz Jennings.

Disc 1 entitled 'The Serpent's Treasure' showcases all the classics like 'Midnight Mountain', 'Ebony Tears' and 'Hopkins (Witchfinder General)' and acts as a reminder (not that you should need one) of the huge contribution Cathedral have made, not just to the doom scene but heavy music generally. While disc 2 - 'The Serpent's Chest', features tracks from the legendary second demo, rare live performances, three completely unheard tunes, radically different versions of established favourites and even a Witchfinder General cover version.

THE CHASM complete recording

Daniel from The Chasm sent through this message from the studio shortly after the completion of the recording for the upcoming Wicked World album 'The Spell of Retribution': 'Finally, after several delays, all the tracks have been completed,and the last 2 recording sessions took place on Sunday (vocals, leads) and Monday (acoustics). After all these layers had been finished we really can say that this is one very unique, dark and destructive piece, easily the deadliest in our career, some never before used elements were incorporated on some songs, and the true believers will be surprised - in a very positive way.
We already started to do some tests with mixing, warming up with the 2 covers, the results are very satisfactory, but there's still some tweaking to do, we are going back to start the heavy work of the real mixes of the originals. Mp3's to be posted soon.'
