Gorgasm have posted the following update on their upcoming new album:
"KuntKiller is almost fully written and we can honestly say that it will be our most intense release to the date. Of course it will have "GORGASM" feel to it but it will feature many new elements and sometimes will drift in the directions that we have never explored before. Sum of tha song titles will be:
Power Metal band Primal Fear are now back from their South America tour after playing their last two shows in Brazil, and are already in new album mode. The songwriting and pre-production process has already started and the band is currently in negotiations with engineers and recording studios for the recording of the album.
So far three songs for the album have been completely written and the track names for them have been released. They will be called 'Save Me', 'Torn' and 'Everytime It Rains'. Primal Fear says that the three songs "...sound very very promising". More information about the album will be released soon.
Swedish doom metallers, Candlemass have posted the following extensive update via the band's homepage:
"You have heard the rumours and it is with a heavy heart we must make this official. The band have tried to solve the situation several times, but Messiah cannot be persuaded to sing on the new album. His attitude and demands are way too unreasonable.
I'm very sorry about this, not surprised though.
We have all been very disappointed with Messiahs behaviour during the previous years reunion, especially with his childish and undemocratic way to "discuss" matters before the may recording at Polar in Stockholm. It's not cool when one person refuses to listen to other people, don't give a shit about his bandmates and demands special treatment.
Guitarist Nornagest posted the following on the bands official website:
"On October 19th 2006, the decision was taken that longtime vocalist Sabathan won't be a part of Enthroned anymore. It was time to choose whether we would go on like this and lead Enthroned to a certain death or whether it will continue in its original perspectives.
To make a long story short; Sabathan isn't interested nor have conviction in our faith (black metal here so to speak) anymore, and for the last two years we were not able to practice nor to write music in a decent way.
Now, for those who would wonder if Enthroned will continue without Sabathan, the answer is definitely: YES! I wrote 90% of the music and lyrics since 'Towards the Skullthrone of Satan' and my devotions are still the same for all those years. We are working now on the next opus with a new member which will be presented in the next months."
