Posted on official site www.megatherion.com by webmaster on 26.11.2004:
As all good things must come to an end, for some time now I have been feeling that my time with this page is almost over. Due to many personal reasons, mainly me being overworked with other, more proffitable jobs (Hey, you gotta eat, right? The Therion page isn't really an employer.), I simply don't have the time nor the initiative to do stuff on this page, after I spend 15 hours a day in front of a computer screen. So I have decided to do the only proper thing, and that is to formally quit the Megatherion Intelligence Page project. I will do so in a matter of days, as I still have a lot of unsorted mail to sort (and forward to appropriate persons) and to add quite a lot of pictures from the gigs (thanx a lot for sending them people, they are great!) to add to the photo section.
After 10 years of history Theatres des Vampires have split from the singer Alexander.
This happened in the recent days.
After 3 months of discussions and a formal stop of activities, Theatres des Vampires was forced to stop the collaboration with the singer Alexander.
The singer during the last year suffered for a badly and distructive form of jelousy against some members of the band as Scarlet (the well know she singer of the band) and Fabian the keyboard player and main compositor of the band.
This caused major problems and a virtually impossible continuing of activities of the band in this kind of situation.
The band fronts 2 options, or disband the band or fire out who has been the problem in the last months.
And the decision is taken.
Theatres des Vampires, in according with the official Management Tim Fraser and the label Plastic Head decided to stop the collaboration with the singer Alexander and at today are searching for a new singer to replace him.
For the moment all activities of the band are freezed while searching for the new singer.

MORS PRINCIPIUM EST ANNOUNCE TRACKLISTING TO THEIR NEW ALBUM 'UNBORN' :
" The overall sound of the album became really massive compared to our debut album 'Inhumanity' and the production is very futuristic and top-notch because we had time to record a lot of extra stuff in our own studio. To mention few bands that the album might sound like, I would go with a mix of AT THE GATES, CARCASS, and EVANESCENCE for some parts . Even blastbeat is heard from time to time, and Ville's vocal parts turned out to be something else, his voice has really developed to more serious deathmetal growling." Jori / MPE.

"BOLT THROWER have found a replacement for the recently departed Dave Ingram.
The band is very happy to announce that original vocalist Karl Willetts has rejoined them as a full-time member.
Karl said, "It's fantastic to be a part of the mighty BOLT THROWER again. It feels great to be back with the guys, I can't wait to get my teeth into the new songs and get back on the road again. I've got some unfinished business to attend to...!"
The now complete line-up of BOLT THROWER - Karl Willetts, Gavin Ward, Barry Thomson, Jo Bench & Martin Kearns - will spend the next few weeks finishing off the new material and plan to go into the studio in the new year."
Guitarist/main songwriter Kari Kainulainen has left the Swedish progressive metallers Amaran. "I have decided to leave Amaran to devote my energy to my new band, Sibliance," Kainulainen writes on the band's web site. "I not not leaving Amaran because of any personal indifferences... Amaran has just been working poorly lately, which has made me frustrated. I can remove by stepping down. Furthemore, I haven't been satisfied what so ever about the situation with Listenable (I guess that's the biggest issue)...
"I wish the Amaran guys all the best and all the best of luck!!!"
Amaran's sophomore effort, "Pristine In Bondage", was released in January through Listenable Records. The follow-up to "A World Depraved" was recorded at Studio Underground in Västerås, Sweden and is the group's first since the departure of bassist Mikael Andersson (he has since been replaced by Julie Laughs No More drummer Ronnie Bergerståhl).
Sébastien has left the role of guitarist to Stéphane Jeannin for personnal reasons.
Stéphane has already played in many different bands and got a solid experience. Beeing an excellent guitar-player, he's bringing more power and cohesion to the Aquilon's music.
The 2 next concerts of the band :
04 décembre - Macon (71) - La Cave a Musique - 21h00 - 9€
11 décembre - Saint Martin D'Hères - L'Art Scène" (80 rue des Taillées-38400)
"Well, it's been awhile, but we can finally announce that our longtime friend and former guitarist AARON GUERRA will once again be cranking up the guitar with Tourniquet! As you may remember, it was a mutual parting a couple three years ago, as Aaron was starting a family and so on. We are all now in a position to welcome him back and he is in a position to return - so... let's all give him a "WELCOME BACK AARON". Of course, this means you may have a chance to see Tourniquet live again..."
"The band return to Thin Ice studios on November 22nd to record 3 new tracks for the Japanese record label. These three songs will feature on the 3rd PQ album...title coming soon!
The remainder of the album will be recorded between January 24th and the end of February 2005.
Power Quest are still searching for a new drummer to join the band. If you are a drummer and you can play in the vein of Dan Zimmerman, Jorg Michael etc then we want to hear from you!
Please contact Steve Williams for more information.
Thanks to everyone who came down to the Underworld show on November 13th! What a night! Extra special thanks to our friend Paolo who filled the drum stool for the night. Awesome performance dude!"
The Neo-folk projet by Kim Larsen put an update on his website:
"The next album 'SONNENHEIM' is being worked on
and will be released by 'Heiðrunar|Myrkrunar' & distributed by Tesco.
After long time requests the Midnight Will 10" EP, originally released by Eis+Licht,
has been re-edited, re-mixed and will be re-released on a MCD at some point in the future.
2 additional tracks was recorded at the same sessions
and will be out on a 7" single titled "HAIL HAIL HAIL".
Here is a message take it from their official website:
"Well, I have returned, safely from Gothenburg, Sweden, where I completed all drum tracks at "Los Angered Recording" with Mr. Andy Laroque at the healm, as it were. all went very well and without problems, which is always a bonus, really. I really enjoyed my stay in Sweden - Andy really took care of me while in Gothenburg, showing me the sights, etc. All around, a very good trip - I certainly could see going back at some point, for future recording-related possibilities.
Nils dropped by the 2nd day of recording, which was nice to see him of course - at that point, the actual recordings were just commencing, so he was not able to catch much musically, but he could tell that there was a good vibe going on in the studio, so I believe that put him at ease. As I write this, Andy is working on finishing up the drum-editing, which should be completed by weeks end. I can assure you that this is the "busiest" I have played on an Eidolon record, mostly due to playing on a "real drum kit " ( I have used the roland v's for most of the records ) so it was certainly nice to get back to playing an acoustic kit in the studio!!
