"We're sad to announce that Hell Within has called it quits. Hell Within will be playing our last show on 11/11/11 at the Village Smoke House in Lowell MA. We'd like to thank everyone that supported us over the years and made this band happen. It's been a long hard road, but the most enjoyable experience of our lives. All across the U.S. this band traveled, met tons of great people and experienced things that we will cherish forever.

Hell Within released 3 records, had 2 recording contracts, did countless tours and shared with so many people something that is so precious to us. To all the band members that we ever played with, to our record labels Lifeforce and Thorp records, we will never forget you guys. From our 1st manager Cynthia Donovan to our latest manager Damon Moreno we thank you for dedicating so much time to us. Then to all the great companies like Jagermeister, Dean Guitars, B.C. Rich, Mesa Boogie, GHS, D'Addario etc.. that endorsed us we thank you so much for the support.

We'd like to thank our family and friends for always being there for us through the good and tough times. I could go on and on, because the list never ends, just too many people and memories to count. Please come out to the 11/11/11 Village Smoke House show and for one last time, help us make one more memory that everyone will never forget."

Nothnegal - Debut Album Title Revealed

Season Of Mist press release

Nothnegal's debut album is finally in sight! The Maldivian band named their upcoming full-length Decadence.

Guitarist Hilarl commented: "Decadence is Nothnegal's first official studio release and the first release featuring the current line-up, with Fufu handling both the guitar and vocal duties, Marco on keyboards and Kevin on drums.

The writing process of Decadence began in summer 2010 and has been quite a challenge for us as we have taken time to do a lot of experimentation on the sound shifting more towards thrash and progressive metal with industrial elements making it entirely different from the sound we had on our 2009 4 track demo, Antidote Of Realism.

With a completely new and original sound and attitude we feel like we starting again from scratch as we believe Nothnegal have finally discovered its sound with 'Decadence'."

Decadence was mixed by Greg Reely (Fear Factory, Machine Head, Devin Townsend) and Ahti Kortelainen (Sentenced, Sonata Arctica), and has been scheduled for a January 20th (January 24th in the US) 2012 release.
