16:20 - Erik M. Ah that would be a real shame. I haven't been to the first DDD but the last one was my least favourite, I have to say. Then again, the first time (2012) I only saw like 3 bands due to damn train delays (well, mainly :P).
16:14 - Marcel Hubregtse Erik, last year's Dordrecht Doom was by far the worst attended one of the four. So a bit more variation this time. If a certain number of visitors isn't reached this will be the last one.
Finally some news about Septicflesh's new album. The Greek daemons have entered the Devasoundz Studios in Athens to start recording their upcoming, yet untitled, full-length album. The successor of The Great Mass will contain 10 songs and is expected to be released in North America via Prosthetic Records in early 2014.
Satyricon have confirmed that the name of their long-awaited upcoming new album is none other than Satyricon, since it promises to capture the spirit of the band like never before. Satyricon was recorded in Norway, produced by Satyr and mixed by Adam Kasper. The album will be released worldwide on September 9th via Roadrunner Records and the album horned artwork can be seen below. An European tour to promote the album will follow in November and you can see the dates confirmed on the flyer.
After vocalist Osvald "Vald" Egeland and the bassist Erlend Caspersen left the band in 2011, Blood Red Throne face now yet another line-up change. It was announced that their drummer Emil Wiksten is also leaving in order to focus on his other band Aeon. Dødheimsgard's drummer Sekaran will step in as a session drummer for the Protzen and Dokkem Open Air gigs. The band's original drummer, Freddy Bolsø, will join them on their UK mini tour in July.
Black metallers Code announced the signing of a new deal with Agonia Records for their upcoming album which is to be released at the end of the year. The title of the new beast is yet to be revealed as well as further details. However, the band has completed the recordings for the album which will be mixed in Orgone studios (Ulver, Cathedral, Hexvessel) in London next month. Resplendent Grotesque had been their latest offering.
Surprise, surprise. Dødheimsgard (DHG) haven't released any new material for a while but now announced the release of a new album in October 2013 after a six year break. Apparently, a record deal has been inked and material has been written not for one, but two albums which will be released one year apart from each other. The band has not yet disclosed any further details, but more information is to be revealed soon.
