Keep Of Kalessin go ultraspeed performing at Trondheim Jazzfestival

An MP3 of KEEP OF KALESSIN drummer Vyl "rippin' it up" during the band's appearance at the the Trondheim Jazzfestival on Friday, September 1 has been made available for download at this location. KEEP OF KALESSIN performed a one-time, unique show together with the duo MONOLITHIC in what was described as "a concert where extreme metal meets jazz at an insanely high tempo."

Commented KEEP OF KALESSIN's Obsidian C.: "First we thought about showing the jazz audience that we are capable of playing much more than extreme metal, but after having it up for discussion we came to conclude that if we're really going to blow their mind we'll have to do what we do best — and that's doing everything ten times faster than normal!"

KEEP OF KALESSIN's latest album, "Armada", entered the Norwegian national album chart at position No. 20 upon its release earlier in the year. The CD is the group's first with vocalist Thebon, who made his live debut with the band during their live shows in 2005, including the Eastern European tour with EXODUS and HYPOCRISY in December.

ANAAL NATHRAKH recently had their "The Codex Necro" and "When Fire Rains Down From The Sky, Mankind Will Reap As It Has Sown" albums re-released with a load of bonus material. "The Codex Necro" has "bonus tracks comprising the Peel session recorded for the late John Peel's legendary radio show at the BBC studios at the great man's personal request," the band said. "These include the first-ever performance of 'The Oblivion Gene', later to appear in its full re-recorded form on the subsequent album 'Domine Non Es Dignus'. No, that doesn't mean this session was the first recording of the song, it means it was the first performance EVER, the song was never even rehearsed before this recording session. 'When Fire...' is reissued with the inclusion of ANAAL NATHRAKH's full live band debut, the 'Rock Show' live session recorded for the BBC radio show of the same name. Notable in this instance, alongside performances from Ventnor and Chemical Nova, are the appearances of Emburyonymous making its live debut for the band, and Nick Barker who bastardised for this recording alone."

SATYRICON To Perform With Norwegian Orchestra In November

Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON have posted the following message on their official web site:

"The booking of the Scandinavian tour in November is coming to an end and will be announced shortly. For now there are three shows already on sale: Oslo, Trondheim and Bergen, Norway. We are looking at approximately 10 shows in Norway, 6 in Sweden and 2 in Denmark.

"As a part of this tour we will realise our ambition to make the appearance of the brass section on the 'Now, Diabolical' album become reality, live in concert. We have already done this in a scaled down version as a part of the P3 sessions show that was a concert broadcast on radio shortly before the release of the album.

"This time around we have been lucky enough to join forces with the whole cavalry and we have some of the best men from The Norwegian Broadcasting Orchestra and Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra joining us on stage at Sentrum Scene in Oslo, November 4th. Please note that we are talking about big-ass horns in various shapes and forms. There will be no harps, or violins for that matter!

"Together with Øivind Westby that helped arrange brass for three of the songs on 'Now, Diabolical', we are arranging brass for old and new SATYRICON songs trying to give the songs a dimension and feel they normally don't have. We have moved the show to Sentrum Scene to ensure it is an all-ages show. We hope this will be a spectacular night for us the performing musicians, and the fans. The show will also be recorded and filmed."

SATYRICON's latest album, "Now, Diabolical", debuted at No. 2 on the national Norwegian chart and also charted in Sweden and Finland.

THUNDERSTORM Announces New Album Title

Italian doom metallers THUNDERSTORM have set "As We Die Alone" as the title of their fourth album, tentatively due late 2006/early 2007 via Dragonheart Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Faithless Soul" was recorded at New Sin Studio in Loria (Italy) and will include a cover version of the JIMI HENDRIX classic "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)". THUNDERSTORM's version of the song is described by the band as "ultra-heavy but respectful of the original feeling."



MOURNFUL CONGREGATION is currently in the process of recording a new track for a split 7" record with fellow Australian doom metal band STONE WINGS. This track will be entitled 'Descent Of The Flames', with the STONE WINGS track being entitled 'Ascent Of The Flames'.
This is somewhat of a concept 7" with both sets of lyrics being penned by Chuck Keller (ORDER FROM CHAOS, VULPECULA, ARES KINGDOM). With corresponding artwork and musical parallels, this will truly be a unique and one-of-a-kind jewel in the doom metal annals.
It is unsure as to which label it will be released through at this stage, but expect its release late in 2006.
Damon from MOURNFUL CONGREGATION has recently lent his doomed vocals to a FALLEN hymn. Of course this is the funeral doom band driven by FUNERAL drummer Anders Eek. The track is inextricably extreme and the results of this collaboration have proven to be truly doomed. What's more is that the lyrics to this hymn were penned by the late Einar Fredriksen of FUNERAL, making this a very meaningful track indeed. More news as to how it shall be released is soon to come.
There is also talk of a four-way split 12" LP in the works with three other extreme doom metal bands from across the globe including LOSS. The artwork for this release will be handled by Away of Voivod. These collaborations will serve as the perfect predescessor to MOURNFUL CONGREGATION's next album which is set for a 2007 release.
