04:49 - Redn1ght Closest thing to death I've felt was when I had to do some badass-level ab workouts in TKD class. xD (I wasn't as fit back then.)
04:44 - Dima We did it for an 1hr straight. Team ran a square route in a 2 line formation. The 2 people at the front would sprind around the square to reach the back of the line. It was closest thing to death i've felt but worth it big time

The release of Accept's brand new record Blood Of The Nations is fast approaching (late summer of 2010). It will mark the first studio-album of the band since more than fifteen years. You can find a brand new song "The Abyss" on the band's official MySpace page.
The Rotted are set to enter the studio in May with producer James Dunkley to record Anarchogram, a self-released EP comprising of 2 new tracks and 4 bonus tracks.
Says guitarist Tim Carley: "These songs are the first we have written with the new line-up and we are really buzzing about letting people hear them! We've wanted to do something like this for ages, put out a self-financed DIY release on our own label, like the way we used to more than 10 years ago, before MySpace and Blog sites and all that crap. We've got the opportunity to do it this summer and it's a way for us to give something back to the fans at a low cost".
As bonus tracks, each band member will be picking a song by a band they want to personally pay tribute to, for inspiring them to play extreme music in the first place. Says vocalist Ben McCrow: "These are just a bit of fun really, and a chance to pay homage to the Metal Messiahs we worshipped during our teenage years. Most musicians have a list of cover songs they'd love to play, and I'm sure you won't be disappointed with our choices!"
After the release of the EP this summer The Rotted will continue working on album two. They plan to enter Parlour Studio in January 2011 with Russ Russell at the production helm. Anarchogram is set to be released in Summer 2010 and available via the bands webstore.
"Crystal Glaze Foundation" is the new track available for streaming from the Portuguese black metal outfit Corpus Christii. Check out the song on the band's MySpace page. The song comes off the band's forthcoming album titled Luciferian Frequencies scheduled to be released soon.
The Chant are back with their second studio album This is the World we Know. The album is readily available for purchase in stores following release on April 14th 2010. The opening single "New Reality" is now available on MySpace.
The Chant are taking the next step following the success of their debut Ghostlines, which was widely appreciated, across genres, winning plaudits for notably crossing the boundaries of the metal scene. For their new album This is the World we Know; The Chant have taken a step towards what you could say is a more serene and ambient rock style to what we heard before. The Chant are preparing to take their journey to the next level, reaching out to music lovers with an evermore diverse collection of songs enthusing subtle metal elements with atmospheric overtones, very much setting them apart from the metal bands of Finland as we know it.
Shadowside has uploaded the video for the song "Hideaway" from the Dare to Dream album, second studio effort from the Brazilian Metal band. This album was produced and mixed by Dave Schiffman (System Of A Down, Audioslave, Avenged Sevenfold and others) and Howie Weinberg (Aerosmith, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Pantera, Rush and others), and reached position number 4 in the Brazilian Metal charts.
The video, directed, produced and edited by Luiz Felipe Amorim, took place in an abandoned garage in their hometown Santos, Brazil. It features the band performing as well as lead singer Dani Nolden playing the main character. According to her, the song talks about "people who are misunderstood, mistreated and put down by society for their whole lives, for the sole reason of being different and unusual. In this case, we portrayed it on a more personal level and showed a teenage girl accused by her mother of painting masks to disrespect her, to be aggressive, while all she wants is to express herself and ends up hiding who she really is".
Musica Diablo will be releasing their self-titled debut album on May 28th, via SAOL/H'Art/Zebralution.
Founded in 2008 by André NM (Nitrominds) the band includes Derrick Green of Sepultura as singer. Furthermore, guitarist André Curci, drummer Edu Nicollini and bassist Ricardo Brigas top the band off. The self-titled debut album is said to "give you fine and precise high-speed thrash à la Slayer, Municipal Waste or older Sepultura". Two tracks are already uploaded on http://www.myspace.com/musicadiablo.

"After many weeks of quiescence we are back with a vengeance and with tons of news for you guys. Our new album Follow The Flames is completely finished and ready to take off. We have recorded 10 songs, which in our opinion are the strongest Burden Of Grief songs so far. And in addition to these songs we have recorded 8(!) coversongs for a limited-edition 2-CD version. And to put a crown on top of this, we had the honour to have some highly reputated guest-musicians singing together with Mike.

After many, many delays US death metallers Necrophagia have finally finnished song writing for Deathtrip 69. Here's the latest update straight from the band:
"The new material sounds like it should have chronologically followed Season of the Dead. Consisting of very dark and heavy riffs interwoven with audio horror and inhuman vocals. Killjoy is full of praises for the new line up and says that although it's been a very long time since the band has been active it's the beginning of a rollercoater ride into horror hell. Inspiration is at an all time peak and having known guitarist Boris Randall for over 20's years makes things alot easier when it comes song writing "because we are always thinking in the same direction musically". Another element brought back to Necrophagia is lead guitar passages courtesy of Randall.
Original While Heaven Wept guitarist Tom Phillips has issued the following band statement:
"It is with deep regret that we announce the cancellation of our appearances at Metal Camp 2010 as well as the Born To Be Doomed festival in Baltimore this year. Cancelling any show is very difficult for us emotionally and spiritually... those of you who have been with us for a while know that we've even brought in stand-in musicians to make things happen in the past, but unfortunately, sometimes things simply don't work out no matter what we do.
Regarding Metal Camp, extenuating circumstances that neither the Metal Camp organization nor WHW ourselves could resolve... despite exhausting every last possibility... have resulted in WHW being cancelled from the billing for this year. Part of this can be attributed to conflicting schedules, along with truly outrageous expenses, and a few other personal matters that we'll make public when appropriate (don't worry, they're not malign). The bottom line is we hope that we'll be able to reschedule for Metal Camp 2011 (or after), and will let you know if and when this is sorted out.
