04:42 - deadone We all do (the girls use strapons). However most people are scared to tell you because they don't want to admit they're wankers.
04:40 - Fearmeister damn, I'm flattered. We need more people on MS jerking off to me
04:37 - deadone Everything Fearmeister says is absolutely true. I'm jerking off right now - proof men can multitask.
04:15 - Fearmeister Australia is called the land down under because everyone just masturbates all the time. This is because due to the remoteness and lack of people, that is the only recreational occupation they have
04:11 - deadone Guib, I'm happy I could enlighten you!
03:46 - Guib @Deadone: Holy fuck... that one was not expected lol.
The premier Brazilian progressive rock band Apocalypse launched a new video-clip for "Welcome Outside". This is the second video taken from "The Bridge Of Light", the band's latest album.
"The Bridge Of Light" is the band's tenth release and it's available in the entire South American territory throught Free Mind Records and in Europe and Asia through the french label Musea Records. "The Bridge Of Light" celebrates Apocalypse's 25th anniversary.
Tampa, Florida's Generichrist have confirmed that the title of the next Generichrist release will be 'Minddumpster'. The special edition CD will be released by the Asian underground label Xmusick/ AreaDeath Productions. The album will include seven new tracks and feature the artwork of Florida artist Mark Cooper. This will also be the first Generichrist release with new drummer Marc Ciccosanti and new guitarist Nick Palm. This will be the follow-up to 2008's 'Fuck Ritual' album. The band will enter the studio in May to record 'Minddumpster' and also tracks for the 4-way split with Necrocannibalistic Vomitorium out of the Ukraine, Fascist Insect out of Ohio, and Sarlacc from Pittsburgh. The split will be released late this summer.
A new dawn has come for Winterland. As you probably know, the band will soon come up to the Wildpath Studio to record its first album.
For this occasion, the band will change its name to Silent Fall. This announcement may certainly surprise a lot of you, but you have to reckon that this decision was hard to take because we are using this name since 2005. In fact, another Winterland, coming from Germany, exists, and has already released two albums. This band owns the rights on the name, and that's why we can't continue to use it. In brief, our music will stay the same and we'll continue to play the songs that you already know, but when the album is released, you have to look for us at the S letter instead of the W letter.
Frontiers Records is excited to announce the release of Jorn's brand new studio album, entitled "Spirit Black", on June 5th in Europe and July 14th in the USA.
Considered by many fans and critics as one of the finest voices in Hard Rock to arrive on the scene at the end of the 20th century, Jorn is now ready to unleash upon the world yet another studio album entitled Spirit Black.
"I have carried some of these ideas with me for quite some time" tells Lande, "Willy, Jimmy, Sid and myself have known each other since the 80's, and some of the song ideas and demos from back then have now seen the light of day, and become an essential part of Spirit Black. When we were younger we usually never cared about what we did yesterday, only about the future, but the past can sometimes reveal hidden treasures and I discovered great potential in some of these song-ideas".
After the phenomenal last studio album "Gothic Kabbalah" (2007), easily Therion's most stunning effort since "Theli", and the follow-up live CD "Live Gothic" (2008), Therion mastermind and only remaining founding member Christofer Johnsson decided to go for a rather special project: the band's appearance at the remarkable and renowned International Opera Festival in Miskolc, Hungary in 2007 was taped on and off stage to preserve a truly unique classic metal event for the Therion fanbase! The first part - dubbed "Classical adventures" - features some of Christofer's favourite composers (especially his alltime fave, Wagner) and does completely without guitars or any metal instrumentation whatsoever. Just orchestra and choir. Part two, "Therion songs", delivers exactly that: finest Therion material performed by the band, a huge orchestra and choir. Rounding off "The Miskolc Experience" is an entertaining documentary which gives insight in the complicated organisation and the no less complicated execution with all ups and downs for the involved crew and musicians.
New Orleans, LA's sons of American no-frills black metal, Goatwhore, have just announced that the title of their fourth full-length album, and second for Metal Blade, will be "Carving Out The Eyes Of God". For the follow up to 2006's "A Haunting Curse", Goatwhore headed back to St. Petersburg, FL to record with producer Erik Rutan at Manna Studios with mastering being handled by Alan Douches of West West Side.
Vocalist Ben Falgoust comments on the direction of the new album; "I don't really know how to explain this. I don't want to come off with the typical speech about how this record is our best yet and all of that. I will say that I am quite pleased how it has turned out and all parts relating to it. I feel every member put a great deal of effort into their part of the project. I even feel Erik Rutan busted his ass even more this time to make us feel that we didn't take any steps backwards in the recording and production of this release… I don't even really care what the critics say. I think the end result is basically coming up with something you have put a lot of work into and the satisfaction achieved in completing it. I will say that the new material is ripping metal and we still have that 'Goatwhore' sound, whatever that may mean for each individual that enjoys or hates what we do. Just look at it as another step in the evolution of this band. Each person that hears it will have his or her own perception of it. Like it or not, we don't have a say in it. The only thing we can do is just keep writing the way we do and accept the criticism. Doesn't mean we are gonna listen to the criticism and change. Just give it an honest listen and if you dig it, awesome! If you don't, then pass it on to a friend or use it as a new drink coaster."
Finnish Pelimanni-Metallers Korpiklaani have issued the following update: "In 2008 we have been quite busy. We have had two successful tours: the Paganfest Tour and the Finnish Fire Tour. We recorded and released our fifth album "Korven Kuningas". In the whole we played over 80 gigs, that means about one gig in every four days. We had a lot of fun, met many old friends and made new ones. So, this has been a pretty good year for us. 2009 promises to become even better; a long cherished dream of us becomes fulfilled: we will tour the USA and Canada in Paganfest 2! We are invited for Wacken Open Air on their 20th anniversary festival, and many more gigs are in the works. In February we will enter the studio again, to record a brand new album. These last days of 2008, we will make a small tour with In Extremo in Germany, and end the year in Nosturi, Helsinki, on a new year's celebration concert with our friends from Moonsorrow and Kiuas. We wish you all a happy new year and hope to see you around somewhere."

Swedish metallers Astral Doors have issued the following update:
"It's about time that we give you all a real update of what's happening in the Astral Kingdom at the moment.
We've received many mails from worried fans asking us where we are and why it's so quiet from us right now. Well, the answer is: we're working harder than ever before, but not public.
We have actually moved into the studio, writing and recording songs for the upcoming album. We have written 20 songs ot something at the moment and more will come. The creativity has never been at this level before, so we will continue the work a few more months before we go to mixing.
What more to say? Well, our new management Flying Dolphin, with Mr.Chris Boltendahl in the lead, does a great job for us and we feel that the future looks very, very promising. In August we'll come up with a big surprise for you and then a new album and a great tour all across Europe.
''Storm'', the new video from Swedish metallers Sanctification, has been made available online.

''Storm'' comes off the band's latest album, entitled "Black Reign'', which is scheduled for release in May via Pulverised Records.
