21:06 - Nimlot It's practically the norm for people here to bastardise words, e.g. Counter strike became CUNTER strike in completely unironic way, simply due to ignorance.
21:05 - Redn1ght Työpaja's straightforward translation would be something like: Work Smithy/Forge or something to that efffect.
21:04 - Sunny Pagliaccio Joro, I'm sorry but I beg to differ. Just because most bulgarians prefer to use foreign words doesn't mean we're lacking our own. For example we do have a word for a workshop that no one uses anymore.
21:03 - Bad English Bulg use kyrlic , IMO all slavic nations whjat are in EU and EU vanabies must get rid of that and becaime croats , mean use lagin letters
21:03 - Redn1ght Nimlot, we do have words which are that simple. Workshop = Työpaja. :P
21:01 - Nimlot Bulgarian's the same way, easy spelling, easy grammar, but the vocabulary is ugly and lacking. We have so many English words becoming (mispronounced, of course) becoming commonplace, e.g. workshop.

Mortiis will be unleashing their collective demons on The Netherlands and Belgium during a four-show jaunt to continental Europe.
"We're all looking forward to going back to Holland," said band namesake Mortiis. "We haven't played there in a long time and we always had a great time there. We're also doing a couple of towns there we haven't played before, so that will be interesting as well."
Following the three Dutch shows, the band will head to Belgium for the Hermes Project Event, where they will play with Clan Of Xymox.
Mortiis has been putting the finishing touches on The Great Deceiver, the group's long-awaited follow-up to 2005's The Grudge. Tracks from the record can be heard - and seen - via the videos for "Doppelganger" and "Zeitgeist" on Mortiis's YouTube channel. Mortiis also promises to preview several new songs during the live shows.
Heavenly guitarist Charley Corbiaux has announced that, unfortunately Thomas Das Neves has decided to leave the band. "We wish him the best for the future and keep in mind all the good work he has done for Heavenly. Thank you bro' and good luck. But now it's time for good news, my friends. Heavenly is proud to present you our new drummer. He's fast, he's loud, he's crazy and his name is Pierre-Emmanuel "Piwee" Desfray (ex-Fairyland).
And you must also know that the new album is almost finished. The great Philip Colodetti is working very hard at this time. Surrounded by his machines, sweating and screaming, he's processing to the mix and the master of Carpe Diem."

Look forward to January 22nd 2010 - the release day of Blutaar, Varg's first album for new label Nuclear Blast.
"We're proud to be part of the family without having to hide the wolf in sheep's clothes. Nuclear Blast approached us honestly and have the balls to kick ass together with us. This powerful alliance makes us happy! Let's fight against nazis and the haters who wanted to see us in the rightwing corner - the wolves are hunting again!"
US metalcore/thrash act Throwdown has inked a deal with Nuclear Blast for all European countries and Russia. Their brand new album Deatless which will be released in November in the USA will be available in Europe on January 22. Welcome to the family!
"I love when bands reinvent themselves, especially into something great. That's exactly what Throwdown have done on this release. It's as heavy and catchy as you'd expect with memorable melodies that will stick in your head for a long long time. Their best release so far."

Ronald will still play our shows in Zwolle and Birmingham and besides that there is a big chance he will appear on stage now and then at one of our future shows. We hope to be able to announce his successor very soon and keep you updated on that!"
Denmark Power metallers Anubis Gate have issued the short following update:
"We have started writing new material. All song writers have a lot of material, that needs to be put together to form real songs. The plan is to enter the studio during the summer of 2010, but before that we have a lot of demoing the new material, writing lyrics and generally coming up with something spectacular for our coming album."
Ex-Pestilence bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling, who played on the band's fourth album Spheres (1993), will rejoin the Dutch death metallers after a break of 15 years.

Here is a comment from Thesseling: "After such a long period of time it's great to be part of Pestilence again. I'm convinced that this cooperation will result in brilliant technical death metal. In order to avoid misunderstandings I want to emphasize that I will continue to work with my German colleagues of Obscura as well."
