Arch/Matheos - Debut Album Title Revealed

Jim Matheos, guitarist and only remaining founding member of Fates Warning, and John Arch, the original vocalist of the band, are pleased to announce Sympathetic Resonance as the title of their debut album, which will be released September 13th in North America.

The band - accompanied by Joey Vera (Armored Saint, Fates Warning) on bass, Bobby Jarzombek (Halford, ex-Iced Earth) on drums, and Frank Aresti (ex-Fates Warning) on additional lead guitar - began tracking the drums on January 12 and continued to record through mid February with Jim Matheos producing.

Jim Matheos offered his insight on the writing and recording process of Sympathetic Resonance; "I think John and I work really well together. There's a lot of mutual respect and trust in what we do. But, we're also both very critical of ourselves, and each other. This can make for a long and, sometimes, tedious process. But ultimately it's one I enjoy because I think it brings out the best in both of us."

John Arch added; "When I first heard some of the arrangements Jim had written and recorded, it took quite some time before I could wrap my mind around the odd time signatures and guitar work going on here. There are some long compositions, so putting anxiety and apprehension on the back burner it was time to dissect these numbers into digestible bits. After the lengthy process of lyrics and melodies, listening to the songs now, I can't imagine them any other way."

In terms of the lyrical content on Sympathetic Resonance, John Arch notes that "the lyrics this time around are more in line with A Twist of Fate and not of the mystical nature of some past albums."

Gorgoroth - Team Up With Vader For Euro Tour; Album Release Delayed

Gorgoroth and Vader will team up for The Sign Of Hell Tour 2011, destroying cities all over Europe later this year. The European trek, which will include over 45 shows, will kick off at the end of October and conclude right before Christmas. Dates to be announced soon.

According to Polish concert promoter and management company Massive Music, "such a long and immense tour hasn't been seen in Europe so far — all fans of Gorgoroth and Vader should start preparing for a magnificent feast!

It is a completely one-off occasion as both bands will promote their newest albums and they've already announced new concert sets. Gorgoroth will play some of their material from Under The Sign Of Hell released by Regain Records and Vader will present the new songs from Welcome To The Morbid Reich released by Nuclear Blast.

The tour will be joined by additional two or three bands. More information on this event soon!"

In other news, the release date of that upcoming Gorgoroth re-recording, Under The Sign Of Hell 2011, has been pushed back to August 29 from the previously announced June 20 due to "manufacturing problems."

The re-recorded version of the LP features vocalist Pest and guitarist/bassist Infernus, from the original 1996 recording, while Tomas Asklund (ex-Dark Funeral, ex-Dissection) handles the drums.

Testament - Recording New Album With Drummer Gene Hoglan

Due to a "serious injury" being suffered by drummer Paul Bostaph, Testament have enlisted the services of Gene Hoglan (Fear Factory, ex-Strapping Young Lad) to handle the studio drumming for their new album. The group recently entered the studio to begin tracking the new album with producer Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Opeth). A late 2011/early 2012 release is expected.

In addition to Hoglan, Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler will appear on "a couple of bonus tracks." According to the band's management, Bostaph will rejoin Testament at a later date for touring duties.

Hoglan previously played drums on Testament's 1997 effort, Demonic, but didn't stick around long enough to do any touring with the band.
