We are proud to add this new act to our label, an Austrian band combining the brutality and speed of the Black and Death Metal with the abysmal atmosphere of Industrial. Essential for fans of Behemoth, The Amenta, Samael, Nile or Anaal Nathrakh. Apocalyptic Metal, a soundtrack for the end of the world.
Currently the band is finishing the mixing process of their new album entitled "The Delphic Doctrine" that is scheduled to out in the beginning of 2006. The album will feature 8 songs plus intro and outro in almost 45 minutes of furious onslaught!!!
An excerpt of the upcoming album can to be listened to Downloads section of our website or through this link:

Following message was posted in band's website by vocalist Hansi Kürsch:
Hello my friends,
although time keeps on ticking quickly, things go very well in the Guardian camp. To be more precise: we are still on schedule and even though everyone is totally busy and concentrated the atmosphere is very lifely and still relaxed to a certain extend:-) The material for the single will be accomplished at the end of November. To make that happen this particular stuff will get most of our attention for the next 4 weeks. Everyone is already involved in the recording process and we are really excited about the album ΄s progression. It is too early to say when we will be finished exactly, but I would say a worldwide release in the first half of 2006 is very realistic. Things look (sound - as well) very promising. At the moment we are also getting deeper into details such as album title, cover, etc... So, we are about to scratch the most important phase of the recording session and we do not intend to leave you out ... Please, let us work on it a little longer, so we can fix things technically. You will be provided with footage, that is for sure.
Within Temptation have posted the following message on their official website:
"In November last year our third album 'The Silent Force' came out in Europe and we recently just released it in the UK as well. Things have been going great, and after a summer full of cool European shows it was also good to see some of our UK fans in London and at the Bloodstock Festival earlier this month. We are happy and a little proud to look back on a year full of highlights.
Now, the festival season is almost over. Everyone thinks Within Temptation are going to sit back and put our feet up! On the contrary, we are currently preparing the release of a new live DVD which will contain the special concert we did on Amsterdam's Java Island, cuts from many other live shows, interviews and backstage footage plus the promo videos since the previous DVD (from the Mother Earth tour). We want to get as many highlights on the DVD('s) as possible for our fans! The release of the 'The Silent Force Tour' DVD is scheduled for November 21st. And in the UK, to follow on from our first single 'Stand My Ground', we are also working on our second single - which will be 'Angels'.
Freedom Call future (written by Daniel - 09/30/2005)

Freedom Call will definitely go on. The interest in FC is very high and we got some interesting offers.
The first auditions will be on October 25/26th.
We will inform you about latest news!
Official statement from Ilker (written by Ilker Ersin - 09/15/2005)
Hi Freedom Callers.
I'm sorry that I have to tell you now that I am no longer Freedom Call's bass player.
I very much enjoyed the past years with the band, and especially the time with you, but it is time for me to follow a different path now - as some of you noticed, I'm currently getting my own band going.
It's official, EMPEROR have reunited to play some exclusive shows. The band is confirmed to headline the Inferno Festival and Wacken Open air 2006!!!
The band reunited after four years to play a surprise three-song set for Norwegian metal magazine Scream's 15-year anniversary, which took place at Oslo's Rockefeller Sept. 30. 2005. The band took the scene by surprise, performed three tracks — "The Loss And Curse Of Reverence", "I Am The Black Wizards", "Inno A Satana" — and received a rapturous welcome by an ecstatic crowd. Announced as a "big surprise band," the whole arrangement was so secret that neither organizers of the magazine's anniversary party nor the band itself told their closest friends and associates. Anyone that feels they missed out, fear not, next year is when the big events take place. The surprise gig was merely a cool way to "drop the bomb" and create even bigger anticipation for the upcoming shows.
Wintersun, the band led by former Ensiferum singer Jari Mäenpää, have set "Time" as the working title of their new album, tentatively due late 2006 via Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to the group's self-titled debut album (released last September) will be recorded in May 2006 at Sonic Pump Studios with producer Nino Laurenne. "The mixing will happen in the beginning of July," Jari writes on the group's web site. "There´s still work that needs to be done with the songs, but I'm sure we'll get there. I believe that this will be a very strong album and I'm very excited about it!"
the long awaited third album "Zeroland" of Warsaw's powerhouse ANTIGAMA, the sophomore release from Denver's trio CATHETER entitled "Dimension 303" and a debut album "Sedimente" from Germany's WOJCZECH.
All three records are due on November 1st 2005.
