Instead, the double disc will see the light of day through Japanese label Weird Truth Productions in January 2007. Additionally the special release will include the long out-of-print jewels 'No Longer Silent', 'Into the Autumn Shade' and many previously unreleased material plus CD-ROM live stuff, just the way they were originally presented."

AXXIS: 'Best Of' Collection Detailed

EMI Electrola will release the "Best Of" album from German metallers AXXIS on November 17.

EMI Electrola originally asked AXXIS for their co-operation in releasing a "best of" collection from the band several years ago. But the group was reluctant to release a compilation of material that was already available on the market. AXXIS singer Bernhard Weiss explained: "Contractually EMI is allowed to [do] with our old songs [as they please], but in this case we wouldn't support this project!"

After a long period of negotiations, the label and the band are now very happy with the final result.

Featuring previously unreleased material, remixed songs, and special acoustic versions of older tracks recorded earlier this year at Soundworxx studio, "Best Of" is a double CD containing ballads on the first disc and acoustic recordings on the second disc.

Said Weiss: "We were able to convince the label to invest a little bit more money into the project to get a worthy result. Today everybody is able to create their own AXXIS song collection or own sampler with [CD burning] etc. If a major label wants to release a 'best of,' it must be more special!"

CD1 (ballads)
01. Only God knows (Remix 2006)*
02. Stay Don't Leave Me

"Hi all...

Today is the day we lost one of the greatest musicians ever. He was also a dear friend, a brother.

Criss Oliva was taken from us 13 years ago. Some of you are very aware of this, those who are not I wanted to place a reminder here today.

DRAGONLAND: 'Astronomy' Artwork Revealed

The cover artwork for DRAGONLAND's fourth album, "Astronomy", has been posted online at this location. Created by art wizard Niklas Sundin (who has previously worked with ARCH ENEMY, IN FLAMES, and DARK TRANQUILLITY, among others), it "reflects the astronomical theme of the album, with Copernicus surrounded by astronomical instruments and symbols which represent mankinds delving into the utterly dark vistas and the Cyclopean stars, which has been the focal point of awe for millenia and has not only lead to scientific endavours but also baffling myths and foreboading astrology," according to the band.

"Astronomy" is scheduled for release on November 13 via Century Media Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Starfall" was recorded at Studio Fredman (IN FLAMES, HAMMERFALL, DIMMU BORGIR) in Gothenburg with producer Fredrik Nordström.
