Finnish Power metallers Kiuas have issued the following update:
"So, it's been a while since we've informed you of our comings and goings on, and there have been some questions and speculations as to what Kiuas is up to, or are we up to anything...
Well, fear not my comrades! To make a long story short: We'll be entering the studio no later than in the end of November, and start recording our fourth full-length studio album. There are about 10 new masterpieces almost completely written, which we are polishing and finetuning as I write these words. The album is set to be released in March 2010 in Finland, other areas TBA. Naturally this is and has been the reason for not doing gigs for a while, since the writing, arranging and practing of the songs demands our full focus. After the release, we will start touring, the dates will be announced once confirmed (but hold your horses until next year, kids!).
Below you can watch a video for The Gates Of Slumber's "Ice Worm". The clip was created by Doggysmile Pictures (known from "Heavy Metal Zombies" and "Metal Man"), and directed, shot and edited by Martin Piwek. The video features images from this year's Keep It True festival.

"Vîrstele Pămîntului" is an album about embracing your destiny, about choosing and consciously assuming a way of life. The earth is where we came from and where go back into, the one from above and beyond us. Understanding and respecting it is understanding yourself, your purpose and destiny. "Vîrstele Pămîntului" is an album about places of the earth and places of the spirit, about bounds transcending worlds.
The work on the album is scheduled to be completed on a seclusion Negură Bunget will take into the wilderness of the mountains in the following weeks, to concentrate soley on the work for this album, which will be a landmark for its future evolution.

"Starve For The Devil" will be the name of the fourth studio album from Virginia's melodic/technical death metallers Arsis. New material will be recorded this fall with producer Zeuss (Municipal Waste, Agnostic Front, Hatebreed) at Planet Z Studios in Massachusetts. Artist Mark Riddick will provide his trademarked meticulous and grotesque artwork.
This release will mark the return of founding member/drummer Michael Van Dyne, who states: "The new Arsis record is coming along great - we have eleven new original songs nearly completed, as well as a cover song which will probably be used as a bonus track. Recording this album should be a blast, and the fact that we'll be working with one of the world's top metal producers will only make the experience that much cooler."
Municipal Waste are set to return to Europe in early 2010 as part of their "Waste the World" headlining tour.
Following their round of European festival appearances this Summer, Municipal Waste will be seeing out the year with a North American trek, then having a few weeks rest before kicking off the European leg of their tour in mid-January.

In May the band entered Belle City Sound Studio in Racine, WI with Producer Chris Djuricic (Novembers Doom, Dirge Within) to begin recording their debut full length album (bass tracks recorded by the legendary Chicago session player "Sweetiebuns") . The self-titled album is in the final mxing stages and is scheduled for release this December. The
album cover for was revealed in September. Design by Fernando Ruiz with Visual Decay.
In August of this year two songs "This Burden (Tortured)" and "Worms Of The Earth" were made avaiable as a FREE download via the band's offical website.
"Never Say My Name," the new video from Polish extreme metallers Vader, can now be viewed on YouTube.
Inspired by Patrick Graham's bestselling book "L'Evangile Selon Satan" (translation: "The Gospel According to Satan"), the clip tells an alternate story of the death of a messiah who curses humanity before his death on the cross and chooses life in Hell instead of Heaven. Perhaps because of its "controversial" title and content, this book is not available in the U.S. in English, but a French version can be ordered from Canada.
Commented Vader guitarist/vocalist Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek: "We started the video shoot on August 15, at about noon. That day we were in the Last Supper and the slaughter of the Messiah's followers scenes, while during the night we were to take some bluebox and Janus shots. The same day in Wroclaw, the masses came to see a light-and-water show taking place just 200 meters from the place of our shooting the 'Bible scenes.' Lots of people were wondering, 'What's being shot here? A new TV series? The Bible stories? Or maybe a Discovery program?' Despite 12 hours of hard work and constant stage make-up changes, we managed to finish before 1 a.m. We went through it without a bloodshed — well, despite the Last Supper scene... but the blood was a fake.
