US metallers Cannibal Corpse have issued the following update:
"What more can be said, in this Year Of The Corpse 2009, that hasn't already been whispered, grunted or screamed about the almighty Cannibal? They've smashed-nay, hammer smashed-every boundary set before them, defied every censor set upon them, and besmirched every country that would have them. After two decades of unending death metal torment, the band's calling cards are many: the depraved lyrics, the blinding technical prowess, the dominating stage presence, the legions of dedicated fans, the million and a half albums sold. Cannibal Corpse are slashing their way back to Australia and New Zealand to skewer us as all from ear to ear in support of their new album "Evisceration Plague"!"
"Heaven And Hell, the quartet of Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Vinny Appice, will bring their wicked world tour to North America for a seIect number of shows this August. The band will start their summer headlining music festivals across Europe before bringing their macabre stage show of metal classics to North America starting on August 7 in Vancouver. Tickets for most shows go on sale the weekend of May 8. There will also be a presale for all shows, except Baltimore, beginning May 6 at 10AM local time. Coheed And Cambria will provide support on all shows except the Seattle date on August 8, which will feature Neurosis in the supporting slot."
"Dear thinkers and (un)believers, the time has come to unveil a full song from Gnostic's debut "Engineering The Rule"! Download the "Sleeping Ground" track here or listen to it on our MySpace page!"
Drummer Steve Flynn comments on the song: ""Sleeping Ground" is one of the most diverse and aggressive songs on "Engineering The Rule". It has elements from thrash to death to grind, with blast beats, fast double bass, melodic polyphonic guitar harmonies, bass and drum breakdowns, screaming vocals, Latin percussion and on and on. However, despite the furious sounding nature of the song, the arrangement is quite crisp and clean with repeated thematic elements woven into the fabric of the song - culminating with bookend opening and closing riffs. "Sleeping Ground" really does a great job of embodying all that is Gnostic in one song."

Pulverised Records has issued the following update:
"Touted as one of the best newcomers in the Swedish Metal scene, we are very ecstatic to announce that melancholic metallers In Mourning will sign a 2-album deal with Pulverised Records. The band has commenced work on their still-untitled second album and will once again enter Black Lounge Studio (Scar Symmetry, Carnal Forge, Steel Attack) with producer/engineer Jonas Kjellgren taking care of all production duties.
In Mourning's 2008 debut album "Shrouded Divine" naturally gained a massive amount of attention and also very positive responses worldwide with their brand of heart-wrenching melodic passages entwined with progressive elements but yet still retaining all the brutality of Death Metal aggression."

"Sahg has signed a new record deal with Indie Recordings. The band's engagement with Regain Records is hereby terminated. Sahg's third album release is already being planned, due for release through Indie Recordings in October 2009."
Singer and guitarist Olav Iversen states: "Signing with Indie Recordings seems like the most natural thing in the universe for Sahg to do. These people really care more about the music than the money, unlike most others in this business. That was crucial for our decision. We believe this is the right place for Sahg to develop further and keep on expressing what we want musically."
