Belphegor - New Video Online

Extreme metallers Belphegor have debuted the video of the title track of their forthcoming album "Bondage Goat Zombie" a few days ago, exclusively at MySpace Metal.

Helmuth commented: "The video to "Bondage Goat Zombie" delivers a four minute sound wall of total destruction and melodic riff explosions. The hymn relates to the Belphegor trademark of Satanism, the devils pact and BDSM. Veneratio Diaboli - Die Toten reiten Schnell (The Dead Ride Fast).
The title track "Bondage Goat Zombie" is distinguished in English, German and Latin, and contains some of the most aggressive vocal work I've ever unleashed. Belphegor will continue to keep the fucking devil and demonic spirit in Metal music alive, unleash more energy, and give the die-hard brothers and sisters ultimate hell."

Deranged - Disband After 17 Years

Vocalist Martin Schönherr of Swedish Death metal band Deranged has posted the following news:

"Sad news… A couple of weeks ago Rikard Wermén (drums) decided to leave the band. He's been handling all of the bands correspondence (as well as any other matters concerning the band) the last 15 years and told us that he basically was fed up didn't wanted to do that any longer and therefore decided to leave the band. He's been doing a really great work and has always managed to squeeze in time to handle the bands business. He also said numerous times that he will stay and do whatever shows that was booked but wouldn't handle any correspondence and the likes, and even said if we managed to get a tour later this year, he would stay for that as well in case we hadn't managed to get a new drummer. Fair enough and we thank him eternally for that… Now, Johan Axelsson (guitar) said that he didn't wanted to do the booked shows and wanted to split the band up (coz of reasons unknown) which leaves me and Tomas Ahlgren (bass) no other choice then hereby say that we can't play the following festivals, therefor Deranged are from now on split up."

Lurker Of Chalice - Sold Out Debut Album Re-Released

Southern Lord Records announced the following update on Lurker Of Chalice on their website:

The debut album from Lurker of Chalice was originally released as a numbered, limited edition cd by Southern Lord. It immediately sold out and has now become a very sought after release. This re-issue features new packaging (a digi-pack) and a bonus track that was previously only available on the limited vinyl version. For those who are discovering this darkness for the first time, here are some words we wrote in regards to the original limited edition cd release:

'With Lurker of Chalice Wrest takes a nearly gothic approach to some of his vokills. Incorporating melodies and harmonies that although just as bleak as previous works, create a unique grim atmosphere that explores the subtle dynamics of darkness unlike anything hes' done in the past. The songs are all composed and solely performed by Wrest. Some of the songs are as reminiscent of: Fields Of The Nephilim (Elizium era) and Bauhaus as they are of black metal artists like: Blut Aus Nord, Emperor, or Burzum. Indeed it still reeks of Black Metal but this material drags you through new lows that are rarely reached by nowadays orthodox black metal acts.'
