EDGUY: "Tinnitus Sanctus" Artwork Revealed

The cover artwork for "Tinnitus Sanctus", the new album from German melodic metallers EDGUY, can be viewed below. The was recorded at Gate Studios in Wolfsburg, Germany with producer Sascha Paeth and is scheduled to be released on November 16.

In a recent interview, EDGUYfrontman Tobias Sammet stated about the group's new material, "We don't go back to the roots. We never denied who we are and where we come from, so I don't see a reason to go back to wherever. I go straight forward and follow my heart as I've always done, 'Tinnitus Sanctus' is exactly the music we wanna play, we are happy and I don't give a fuck if it's gonna be our biggest-selling album or not. It's so great, even if my career would go down the drain and this would be the last album, I'd be more than happy to be remembered as the guy who recorded 'Tinnitus Sanctus'. I'd rather ruin my carreer with a creative killer album like that than trying to play safe with a boring stereotype power metal stinker constructed on a drawing table. We have a couple of song titles such as 'Dragonfly', 'Dead Or Rock', 'Wake Up Dreaming Black' or 'Sex Fire Religion'. And we'll shoot a video for a very heavy midtempo anthem by the name of 'Ministry Of Saints'. And there'll be a bonus track called 'Aren't You A Little Pervert Too?' which is quite nasty."


New version of new album METALLICA online!!!

petition' There is a lot of complaining about the mastering, but in this case mastering is probably not to blame. The respected Ted Jensen did the mastering, and he has said in an e-mail posted on the Metallica forumthat "the mixes were already brick walled before they arrived at my place. Suffice it to say I would never be pushed to overdrive things as far as they are here. Believe me Im not proud to be associated with this one, and we can only hope that some good will come from this in some form of backlash against volume above all else." So the bad guy here is possibly mixing engineer Greg Fidelman. With James and Lars cheering him on, maybe"

METALLICA will play two low-dough shows in Europe to celebrate the CD's release, in Berlin tonight (Friday, September 12) and London on September 15.

The band will kick off its first indoor North American tour on October 21 in Glendale, Arizona, with shows booked through the end of January.

VADER Confirms Split With Drummer, Guitarist

Veteran Polish death metallers VADER have issued the following update:

"We would like to thank to all the participants of our anniversary gig [on August 30 at Stodola Club in Warsaw, Poland]: bands [GRAVE, ROTTING CHRIST, DISMEMBER, GOREFEST, MARDUK, NILE, ENTOMBED and SAMAEL], fans and staff. Thanks to you all we were able to celebrate the 25th anniversary of VADER in so special way. Big thanks to fans for such a numerous presence, bands for fantastic shows they all played in Warsaw, guests for their appearance on this show and our crew for nearly 24 hours of hard work! It was a very important show for us, the more so because it took place in such a difficult circumstances. We were forced to give up an idea of recording DVD due to some technical issues. For technical reasons we were also unable to build a special stage scenery prepared exclusively for this show. Sorry for very long queues for food and drink and the high price of our energy drink — these things were beyond our control. The show ended up turning out well and despite these shortcomings we believe it was a success. Once again — thank you all! All the blood, sweat and tears poured into VADER have been worth it!

"At this point we would like to refer to the changes that have occurred in VADER. As you all probably already know, Mauser [guitarist Maurycy Stefanowicz] and Daray [drummer Dariusz Brzozowski] are no longer in the band and this anniversary gig was their last show with VADER. We would say that mentally, they both were out of the band [for] a long time. They played with us more like session guys, without any real commitment and dedication. We were thinking about making some changes since a year or something, now we are glad to have this opportunity to build a new band.

"At the moment we are looking for some new musicians. Probably next week we are going to present you our new lineup.

"In October the band will appear on tour in Scandinavia with GRAVE and ZONARIA.

In January 2009 VADER will hit the road again, sharing the stage with DEICIDE and SAMAEL. Just before this tour, in December we are going to start a pre-production process of our new full length album 'Necropolis'. The recording session is scheduled for March. The album will be mixed by one of the best producers in a music industry!

"In May 2009 the band will release a new EP. The new album will be out in September. In meantime we are going to appear on many summer festivals.

"Don't be afraid, VADER don't lose the power and quality. On the contrary, we feel it will be much stronger than ever before.

"Stay VADER-ized, be prepared for a new line up and the upcoming killing album 'Necropolis'!"

According to the Meinl Cymbals web site, Daray will join the Norwegian black metal group DIMMU BORGIR while Mauser will reportedly concentrate on his UNSUN project, which will release its debut album, "The End Of Life", on September 22 via Century Media Records. Their rumored replacements in VADER are former LOST SOUL drummer Adam Sierzega and either Jacek Hiro from SCEPTIC or Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka from DECAPITATED on guitar.

FLOWING TEARS: New Song Posted Online

German female-fronted gothic metallers FLOWING TEARS have made a new song entitled "Colossal Shaped Despair" available for streaming on their MySpace page' .. The track comes off the group's new album, "Thy Kingdom Gone", due on October 20 via Ascendance Records, the new label funded by Lee Barrett (founder of Candlelight Records; former member of EXTREME NOISE TERROR, TO-MERA) and A&R'd by Sam Grant (writer, promoter, broadcaster, interviewer for Sonic Cathedral online).

According to the band, the follow-up to 2004's "Razorbliss" is "a concept album containing 12 songs" and "it has probably become the darkest and most intense one we ever did. We're really excited about how this one turned out and can't wait for you to listen to it! I think we really managed to capture the essence of what FLOWING TEARS is about: there's tons of really heavy melancholic guitar stuff, tons of atmospheres, and probably the most personal and dedicated lyrics we've ever written."

The group adds, "Somehow the album pretty much breathes the spirit of albums like 'Joy Parade' or 'Jade' in terms of atmosphere and density, even though it's much heavier. And even though the album feels very homogenous, it is probably our most varied one. There's a lot to discover… you'll be surprised. Expect an intense one. No party music, not meant to have a good time with definitely."
