SKYFIRE - recording new album

Swedish progressive death metallers SKYFIRE have entered Powernest Studios to begin recording its as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2004's "Spectral", due later in the year via Florida's Pivotal Rockordings. Mixing and mastering will be handled by Jonas Kjellgren (SCAR SYMMETRY) at Black Lounge Studios (SONIC SYNDICATE, SCAR SYMMETRY, THE ABSENCE, ZONARIA).

Commented the band: "Drums, rhythm guitars, keys, and something we can't yet reveal to you are done for two songs. Two more songs will probably be finished by the end of this week! Unfortunately at this point it is too early to tell how many songs will be on the album because we have a lot of material written and we are even doing some last-minute writing in the studio."

SKYFIRE bassist and founding member Martin Hanner previously stated about the upcoming CD, "Expect the traditional SKYFIRE sound, but also expect some new elements that we have never experimented with before. We also cannot wait to work with Jonas Kjellgren, who will be mixing and mastering the new record. He is one of the most talented up and coming producers in metal right now, and we are certain that he will take SKYFIRE's sound to the next level!"

"Michael Bohlin [PAIN guitarist] will sit out the NIGHTWISH tour because of work, but he will be back for the festivals. Niclas [Engelin] from ENGEL will help us out on this one."

THE GATHERING: Limited-Edition 10-CD Box Set Coming Soon

Drummer Hans Rutten of Holland's THE GATHERING has issued the following update:

"Century Media is about to release 'Sand and Mercury', a 10-CD [!] box with all our Century Media releases gathered in a nice box for a fair price (around 30/35 euros). I wrote liner notes for every album. The box set is limited to 3,000 copies.

"This year it's 10 years ago we released 'How To Measure A Planet?', so you figure out what will be Century Media's next special release.

"Another special release: Vic Records will re-release 'Downfall - The Early Years' this spring. It contains the 'Downfall' CD as well as an interesting six-track demo we did for 'Almost A Dance' with former vocalist Bart Smits. Recorded at the beginning of 1992, this demo was the last recording we did with Bart. Very interesting material.

"The owner of Vic Records, Roel, is an old school mate of me and Bart and kindly asked us to do a re-release, as the original 'Downfall' CD isn't available anymore.

"This release is a true revival of the old-school demo tape days. More info at www.vicrecords.com.

"And back into the present: We were asked by ProductieHuis & MusicLab Brabant to write music for a dance ensemble. This cross-over combination of music and dance will be called 'Arr. 2'.

"And yes, we are working on new material. Trust us and don't worry. You will hear new GATHERING songs in 2008."

So I've been including some progressive sounds. Not in an annoying way, though; if we do progressive music, we want people to actually listen to it. We won't become a DEPECHE MODE cover band. If we ever get tired of playing metal. That's the end of CHILDREN OF BODOM."


Fans Trying To Get DIMEBAG Statue In Dallas

Keith Baxter (ex-SKYCLAD,ex-3COLOURS RED) died at 36

According to Kerrang! magazine, former 3 COLOURS RED / THERAPY? / SKYCLAD drummer Keith Baxter has passed away.

Baxter, who shot to fame with 3 COLOURS RED in the '90s, died of liver failure in hospital on January 4, 2008, surrounded by family and friends. He was 36 years old.

A new full-time vocalist will be announced during the first quarter of 2008."

DEMONICAL will support DISMEMBER on four dates in Finland in January.

The band's debut album, "Servants of the Unlight", was released in April via Germany's Cyclone Empire Records. The group toured Europe with NUNSLAUGHTER and NOMINON, and took part in Germany's Up From The Ground festival. They also supported GRAVE on select Scandinavian dates.


SEPULTURA Takes Part In Charity Soccer Game

SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser has issued the following update:

"Yesterday we did another SEPUL-event, a benefit soccer game we do every year to collect food for charity. More than 3,000 people showed up, each one of them brought 1kg of non-perishable goods, it was a great afternoon! The game was organized by Paulo, our bass player, with his brothers, friends and also the support of a local TV station, local soccer clubs (Atletico MG and America MG, who is the owner of the stadium the game was realized, the Idependencia Stadium BH) and Topper, who made all the uniforms for both teams.

"The Sepultura And Friends team was a mixture of musicians and professional soccer players and the other team, Uniao Solidaria, was composed by veterans players, mainly from Atletico MG. The game ended in a draw, 6 to 6, a record-scoring game for us, SEPULTURA.

"Thanks for all the people involved, especially the crowd who came to see a good game and to help people suffering from hunger. Hopefully we will continue to do this game, every year, growing with the help and support from all.

"The game closed a great year of 2007 for me, my projects, solo album, SEPULTURA and my family. We feel a more mature band, especially with our new drummer Jean and now we are ready to write a new album for next year.

"Thanks for the support of you all, in our shows, on your comments, criticism and eulogies. I wish you all a great Christmas and a great new year!"

STILLIFE : new track from album "Destiny"

VIRGIN BLACK: "Requiem – Fortissimo" Track Listing, Sample Available

The End Records has set a February 19, 2008 release date for VIRGIN BLACK's "Requiem – Fortissimo", the much-anticipated follow-up to 2007's "Requiem - Mezzo Forte".

On its latest album — the second instalment of a trilogy — VIRGIN BLACK exhumes the death/doom vibe of early PARADISE LOST and MY DYING BRIDE albums. This is by far the band's rawest and heaviest work to date.

The album's cover art was created by esteemed fashion photographer Andrew Dunbar whose work will be seen throughout the series.

Comments singer/keyboardist Rowan London: "I should feel a sense of dread offering up something so atypical for us to be interrogated and scrutinized. But the fearlessness that we inhabited while writing 'Fortissimo' and the 'Requiem' series survives to see its unveiling. An album not so much about death as the absence of life; it's damn heavy but its countenance is far more brutal than its sound could ever be. Long live the 'death choir.'"

You can hear the track "Silent" by visiting The End Records' MySpace' page at this location.

Says London about the song: "The track 'Silent' simultaneously represents both the divergences and links between Fortissimo and Mezzo Forte. I'm sure that it will surprise a few people."

"Requiem – Fortissimo" track listing:
01. The Fragile Breath
02. In Winters Ash
03. Silent
04. God in Dust
05. Lacrimosa (Gather Me)
06. Darkness
07. Forever
