Hour Of Penance - To Enter Studio This Month

Italian metallers Hour Of Penance have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:

"Hour Of Penance will enter "16th Cellar" studio in Rome on August 27th with Stefano Morabito as sound engineer to start tracking the instruments of their fourth yet untitled new album, follower of the highly acclaimed 2008's "The Vile Conception" released by the renowned Unique Leader Records.

Commented frontman and guitar player Giulio Moschini: "After less then a year of songwriting we're finally ready to hit the studio and record the new album. We're very satisfied with the results of the songwriting sessions, everything went smooth and all the songs came out in a spontaneous way. We have enough material to record almost two albums but as we did with the previous album "The Vile Conception", only the best 10 songs will appear on the new opus. This time we will work with Stefano Morabito to get a more "live" approach and a more natural sound to the new album which will embrace a lot of new and different features from the past releases. I'm sure our loyal fans will not be disappointed when they hear the final result!"

More details about mixing, artwork, title and tracklist of the new Hour Of Penance album will follow soon. Meanwhile check out the bands MySpace page."

Pelican - New Album Details

Official press release

The mighty Pelican are in the studio putting the finishing touches on their fourth studio album, entitled "What We All Come To Need". What guitarist Laurent Lebec has dubbed "the most perfect synthesis of everything we've done to date, sonically", this new album is a giant step forward within the complex, intricate, beautiful and crushing sound Pelican is famous for. The album features more guests than have ever appeared on a Pelican album before: Greg Anderson of Sunn O))), Aaron Turner of Isis, Ben Verellen of Harkonen and Helms Alee and Allen Epley from The Life & Times And Shiner. Content-wise, Lebec says "There is a current of inspiration that feels particular to each album's music and titles. Though we lack a singer, the song names are often conceptual. This new album speaks to a rapidly decaying world, the fulfillment we find in each other, as well as the resolve to move beyond disillusionment". If the recent "Ephemeral" EP is any indication of what's to come, we can expect nothing less than the apex of Pelican's creative output.

"What We All Come To Need" cover art] tracklist:

01. Glimmer
02. The Creeper
03. Ephemeral
04. Specks Of Light
05. Strung Up From The Sky
06. An Inch Above Sand
07. What We All Come To Need
08. Final Breath

Machinae Supremacy - Part Ways With Drummer

Swedish metallers Machinae Supremacy have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:

"Due to personal reasons, our dear Tomas "Tom" Nilsén has chosen this time to leave Machinae Supremacy after seven years of pure win and awesome.

As unfortunate as this is, Tomas could not have picked a better time. We are currently focused on producing material for our upcoming album and can therefore take our time finding a replacement for Tomas without it interfering too much with our plans for the near future.

Tomas, you will be missed."
