Atlanta progressive metal band Halcyon Way has completed the tracking for their new CD, to be released late Spring by Nightmare Records

The album was produced by Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Svartsot) and guitarist Jon Bodan. Drums were engineered by Mike Froedge (doubleDrive, Bloodsimple, Speed X) at Open Sky Studios in Atlanta. Lammert is mixing the album at his studio, LSD-Tonstudio in Germany.
The new release is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut by the band, A Manifesto For Domination. It features the debut of new vocalist Steve Braun (Ashent, Siloam), as well as a guest appearance by Pamela Moore of Queensryche fame. “We’re incredibly excited about the new material,” said guitarist Jon Bodan.
“This album is a quantum leap forward for Halcyon Way – the material is both heavier and more aggressive, but it also is far catchier and more melodic at the same time than Manifesto. The guys in the band all stepped their individual games up, and the material is better for it. Lasse did a great job on the production, and we expect the mixdown and mastering process to be completed by the end of February.”
Halcyon Way has appeared live with many bands such as Helloween, Strapping Young Lad, TYR, Kamelot, Symphony X, Doro Pesch, Cathedral, Virgin Black, Samael, Vicious Rumors, Seven Witches, and many others. In addition they have appeared at ProgPower USA on two occasions, and at Rocklahoma 2008 and 2009.

Noul album DIRTY SHIRT: Same Shirt Different Day

La exact 10 ani dupa primul lor album, DIRTY SHIRT anunta lansarea unui nou material in luna februarie 2010, intitulat “Same Shirt Different Day”. Un preview de peste 12 minute este disponibil pe pagina myspace.com/dsromania. Primul videoclip al albumului (Pitbull) va fi disponibil luni 11 ianuarie.

Albumul a fost inregistrat in Franta de Charles Massabo (Kallaghan Studio) si masterizat in SUA, de catre Alan Douches (West West Side Music), presonaj cunoscut in industrie, care a mai lucrat pentru trupe precum Sepultura, Chemical Brothers, Fat Boy Slim, Monster Magnet, Killswitch Engage si nu numai.

Ascultand “Same Shirt Different Day” veti descoperi universal muzical al trupei DIRTY SHIRT, bazat pe sinceritate, spontaneitate si deseori experiente personale: de la copilaria comunista (“Luna”, “Sandu Porcu”), pana la opinii politice actuale (“New Millenium”, “Manifest”), originile romanesti fiind puternic prezente (“UB”, “Bolnav”). Dimensiunea multiculturala apare in piese precum “Pitbull” (cover exploziv dupa Emir Kusturica & No Smoking Orchestra) sau “East West”, un featuring cu cinci solisti francezi: Candice (Eths), K-Lee si Daniel (Tripod), Mat (Babylon Pression) si Kallaghan (Sikh).

“Same Shirt Different Day” este un album uman, aratand diferite aspecte ale personalitatii DIRTY SHIRT: haios, agresiv, melancolic, nebun, si de ce nu, cateodata, inteligent. Veti gasi influente din stiluri diverse – metal, industrial, folclor, funk, electro. Muzical, trupa prezinta doi solisti cu stiluri complet diferite (cantand in romana, engleza, franceza si chiar in dialectul tiganilor sarbi), sustinuti de riffuri agresive, linii de bass groovy, tobe percutante si clape atmosferice. Iti va place sau nu, greu de anticipat. Insa in mod cert, nu te vei plictisi!

De asemenea, noul site oficial este online: www.dirty-shirt.com

ECHOES FROM TRANSCENDENCE EVENING

Pe data de 24 ianuarie, in selecta locatie The Silver Church Club, Calea Plevnei Nr.61, organizatorii Kogaionon & DonisArt prezinta, in premiera, o Seara Speciala dedicata elitei muzicale underground autohtone!

Prima alegere se numeste THY VEILS iar Daniel Dorobantu, mentorul acestui concept, a decis ca pentru aceasta seara sa aduca sub lumina reflectoarelor si pe cativa din colaboratorii cu care a realizat ultimul album. Este vorba de “Mountain and Cloud”, un CD ce a aparut oficial chiar astazi si despre care puteti afla toate detaliile, inclusiv audio, pe http://thyveils.bandcamp.com. Este un material conceptual, ce insumeaza 4 piese, cca o ora, care dezvolta o aura Landscape Music remarcabila! Puteti asculta, in cel mai inspirat si inedit mod, o combinatie stranie de keyboards cu chitara, trompeta, instrumente de percutie indiene, didgeridoo si chiar voci feminine! Sunetul THY VEILS dezvolta o dimensiune misterioasa, greu de patruns sau perceput la o ascultare superficiala insa perfecta pentru  meditatie sau evadare din cotidian! Efectul minimalist al unor instrumente sau sample-uri pune in valoare si mai mult armonia acestui concept muzical care se bazeaza in egala masura si pe latura vizuala, Daniel fiind un artist incontestabil ce stie sa manipuleze imaginea in cea mai abstracta si, poate, retorica forma!

THY VEILS este primul proiect Dark Ambient infiintat in Romania, in urma cu 15 ani, iar cel de-al 5-lea album dovedeste o maturitate rarisima pentru intreaga noastra scena Dark Ambient. Este un material ce se adreseaza in principal fanilor trupelor promovate de Cold Meat Industry, Rage in Eden, Cyclic Law, Eibon, dar si tuturor celor ce accepta impletirea de muzica si imagine ca pe o reala si introvertita provocare…

DORDEDUH este o trupa infiintata de Hupogrammos si Sol Faur in urma despartirii de NEGURA BUNGET, in vara anului trecut. Este prima oportunitate pentru fanii Black Metal autohton sa vada la lucru acest nou grup timisorean, intr-o formula extinsa cu invitati diversi. A existat si inca exista o intreaga dezbatere despre existenta sau inexistenta unei continuitati conceptuale intre muzica DORDEDUH si NEGURA BUNGET.

Pana acum nimeni nu a avut ocazia sa afle care este adevarul…

Organizatorii au hotarat impreuna cu muzicienii sa arate, in premiera, tuturor fanilor de sonoritati Metal, care este adevarata identitate DORDEDUH!

Desi trupa este la inceput de drum, casa de discuri germana Prophecy Productions le-a oferit deja un contract, albumul de debut urmand sa apara in acest an. Mai mult, in foarte scurt putin timp va aparea si un EP, format din doua piese distincte, ce vor contura barierele stilistice intre care penduleaza muzica celor doi timisoreni.

DORDEDUH doreste sa arate tuturor ca, in ciuda existentei unei scene Black Metal abundente, unde cantitatea este mai importanta decat calitatea, se poate compune si interpreta intr-un mod elegant, profesionist si sincer muzica in care crede!

Va fi un spectacol de imagine si muzica pe durata a 90 de minute, intr-o maniera mai putin intalnita pentru astfel de sonoritati, atat in Romania cat si in Europa!

Asadar, DORDEDUH va aparea pentru prima data pe scena in seara de 24 ianuarie iar posibila sinergie cu THY VEILS o veti putea descoperi doar atunci, fiind, probabil si unica!

Pentru o initiere in universul ECHOES FROM TRANSCENDENCE EVENING, cei interesati pot sa citeasca un interviu cu THY VEILS realizat in urma cu mai bine de 10 ani, ce trateaza insa teme la fel de actuale cu ale noastre vremuri… Aici se va gasi si posibila explicatie pentru Seara Speciala ce sta sa vina…

http://www.kogaionon.com/romana/revista_kogaionon_full/no_05/revista_kogaionon_no5_015.html

Ultimele noutati despre trupe vor veni curand, prin postarea a doua interviuri realizate in aceasta luna!

Vor mai exista in 2010 si alte Seri Speciale in afara celor anuntate? Raspunsul pe 24 ianuarie, in The Silver Church!

Accesul in sala va fi permis la ora 18.30, unde se va putea urmari cca o ora din spectaculosul DVD AGALLOCH, aparut acum cateva saptamani, o raritate dar si o piesa de colectie pentru toti fanii Dark Metal !

In jurul orei 19.30 prima trupa va urca pe scena, cea de-a doua urmand sa-si termine reprezentatia dupa ora 22.00.

Pretul unui bilet este de 40 lei si se va putea cumpara din Reteaua Diverta,  www.ticketpoint.ro, sau la intrare, in seara evenimentului.

Va asteptam!

…underground will never die!

TEN YEARS OF ONHEIL – CONTEST!

Dutch Blackened Death/Thrash Metallers ONHEIL are celebrating their 10-year anniversary this month. Its members have been musically active longer but it was November 1999 when ONHEIL as a band name was chosen.

The only original member Amok briefly comments: “Especially the first 7 years have been one chaotic hellride. Where bands usually grow and get more professional, we cared more about the alcohol, the women and the metalparties. Good times, but a bit too self-destructive hehe.

But fuck, the band survived it all, got back on track in 2007 and now we are more focused than ever!”

To celebrate the “10 years of ONHEIL” the band has launched a contest in which a price will be given away for each year of their existence. The first 9 winners will receive a signed copy of their latest work, “Razor” which has been released last May by German Record label Cyclone Empire.

Besides the album, the tenth winner will receive a “Razor” T-Shirt or Girlie + a cool full discography package which includes:

  • The “The Threat” Mini CD from 2003
  • The “We Hebben De Hel Gezien” Full-length Demo CD from 2002
  • A newly created copy of their “Sterf” Demo CD from 1999

A great price for die-hard fans as all of these releases have been officially sold out for many years and are well sought-after items by metal collectors.

Competing is easy: Email your answer to this question to contest@onheil.com : “To which album were you listening 10 years ago?

From the answers that are sent in, ONHEIL’s band members will choose their personal favourites and, from those, 10 winners will randomly be picked. The band already likes to add that SLIPKNOT, WILL SMITH and BRITNEY SPEARS will NOT be among the winning answers. Metalheads can send in their emails until the 31st of January 2010.

Onheil’s video for “As Hope Dies” shows a lot of footage that was filmed during the last 10 years. Therefore it might be an appropriate addition to your (web)article.

Short Biography:

After wandering the underground since 1999 and releasing a number of demo’s and a mini CD it is March 2007 when “The new ONHEIL” arises. This new line-up has 3 guitarists and 2 lead vocalists, giving them more possibilities to expand their own unique Blackened Thrash/Death Metal sound.

The return with a new promo CD was received very well and lead to a string of great live shows with bands like IMMORTAL, BELPHEGOR, VADER, WARBRINGER, MAYHEM, ENTOMBED, ROTTING CHRIST, GOD DETHRONED AND AGATHODAIMON. It also brought them a new record deal with German Label Cyclone Empire.

ONHEIL’s album “Razor” got released last May and the reactions have been enormously positive by both fans and critics, often giving the album the highest rating. Currently ONHEIL is playing live shows throughout Europe.

SEASON OF MIST’S ESCAPE PLAN!

It has been killing us not to reveal anything sooner, but we can now announce it: the whole Season of Mist staff is really proud and happy to welcome THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN to the roster! It is an honour for the label to have such an originally talented band on board. DEP’s fourth studio album – whose title will be revealed in a few weeks – is due early 2010.

“It is becoming clear that as the music industry standard continues to morph and change on a daily basis, artistic and operational freedom has become a band’s most valuable asset”, guitarist Ben Weinman comments. “100% free of all previous contractual ties, Dillinger is in an amazing position to collaborate with some interesting partners which will continue to nurture the ethic that we have been doing our best to stay true to for over 10 years now. While touring Europe in support of our record, “Ire Works”, I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Berberian, distributor and owner of the independent record label Season of Mist. It quickly became clear that we had very similar ideas about Dillinger’s music and its place in the underground. Season of Mist has always been a leader in releasing some of the most extreme and interesting metal and experimental music. We look forward to releasing our next full length effort in association with Season of Mist as the very first chapter of this new journey. Also, Michael’s last name almost spells out Barbarian which Greg was really excited about.”

Ben recently spoke to U.K.’s Rock Sound magazine about the progress of the songwriting sessions: “The new songs sound dark and evil,” he stated. “Very early ’90s thrash-influenced.

“Lately I have been realizing the purpose of why I started DILLINGER all those years ago. It was to make people truly uncomfortable and to make them not feel accepting of what is happening in their surroundings. When I was growing up, I discovered metal and it interested me, I liked that it was dark and talked about the fact that the world is not all puppy dogs and ice cream cones. But then it just got ridiculous, humourous. I look at black metal bands and they are supposed to be so evil. But it’s not real. It’s about fiction. About goblins and the gates of hell; pretty much a bad horror movie.

“The music we are writing is influenced by the feelings I get when I hear and see the real evils of this world. Horrible things that make me really question if there is a God or not. This shit is not comfortable, the world is not comfortable, babies are getting raped in your town for God’s sake. Young girls are being sold as sex slaves, but most people sitting at their computers downloading music don’t want to know. They want to sit on a message board or play fantasy football while their mommy makes them a sandwich.”

To help you wait until the album is released, a free remix E.P. (limited to 500 hand-numbered CD’s) will be included with the next limited edition DILLINGER shirt. It will include remixes and interpretations of DILLINGER songs from artists such as THE FLASHBULB, IGOR CAVALERA, ATTICUS ROSS, NANOS OPERETTA, and THE CASSETTES. Check out www.myspace.com/dillingerescapeplan for info on the t-shirt / remix EP package.

With the release of DESTROYER 666’s new album due in less than two months now, it’s time to get a glimpse of “Defiance”. Download the “Stand Defiant” track here!

Frontman KK comments on the song, in his very own usual style: “As much a statement about the bullshit inherent in metal lyrics as a verdict of guilty against the secular theology of idealism born largely of the 20th century. The ending refrain, a necessary denial of the burdening nihilism that pervades much of western subculture today.”

  1. Weapons of Conquest
  2. I am not Deceived
  3. Blood for Blood
  4. The Barricades are breaking
  5. Stand Defiant
  6. Path to Conflict
  7. A Thousand Plagues
  8. Human, all too Human
  9. Sermon to the Dead
  10. The Truth (special bonus track)

Last week-end, D666 performed at the Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore. Check out pictures on www.returntothepit.com. GNOSTIC, ATHEIST, MAYHEM and BRUTAL TRUTH were there too.
