Having recently re-signed with Dynamic Arts Records, Finnish death metal/thrash act Deathchain check in with the following update:
"We've been forced to cancel our show at Gloria (in) Helsinki, Finland (on November 25th).
(Guitarist) B. Undertaker is suffering from heart infection and bronchitis and the doctor's orders where loud and clear: He must rest and take it very fucking easy.
This is something we don't wanna fuck around with and we have no choice but to cancel the show.
It's a fucked up situation, but playing the show under these circumstances is just not worth the risk. We are truly sorry for this and we hope that everyone understands the seriousness of the matter."

"Scum", the first ever album by Death/Grindcore band Napalm Death is going to be re-released next year as a 20th Anniversary version. The release will contain a remastered version of the original "Scum" album and also a bonus DVD. The DVD will contain (among things) interviews with the three original Napalm Death members Nik Bullen, Mick Harris and Justin Broadrick, getting their thoughts on "Scum" getting re-released. The album is set for an early 2007 release.
Here is a comment by head of Earache Records Digby Pearson:
"...the 20th anniversary of the recording of "Scum" should be a good way to re-introduce a new generation to the legendary album that kick-started extreme music and coined the grindcore genre".
