Destroyer 666 Off North American Tour

Due to a torn ACL Destroyer’s K.K. Warslut will be going into surgery and they have dropped off the Destruction tour starting in April. Bay Area thrash band Heathen has been announced as their replacement.

DESTRUCTION wishes Keith a safe and quick recovery!  In the meantime, we are really happy to announce their old friends HEATHEN as a replacement for Deströyer 666!  These Bay Area thrashers are one of my favorite thrash bands of all time and we will be sharing the European stages with them in some weeks on the Killfest tour.  It’s fantastic to have an opportunity to tour with old friends on both sides of the globe! German & Bay Area Thrash together on tour – how much more kick-ass can it get?!  I can’t wait to hit the road again now, hope to see you all out there!

Free Metal From Argentina

Argentinian Folk Metal band DOLMEN have made their debut release, Anhelos Ancestrales, available as a free download through their label, ANCESTRAL TUNES.

The album is a fairly refreshing folk metal with some prog elements and some light synth work. The female vocalists voice is beautiful and since everything is in Spanish, I can pretend she’s singing about having sex with me. It’s free and certainly worthy of a download.

Moonsorrow with a New Album!

Varjoina kuljemme kuolleiden maassa

Moonsorrow is back, thank the earth and sky. The album is dubbed, true to the band’s grey lyricism, Varjoina Kuljemme Kuolleiden Maassa (As Shadows We Wander In The Land Of The Dead), and it’s to be released on the 21st of February. The album will have seven tracks, four long, three short (i.e. long short long Inflatable Pub For Sale short long short long) – a cool recasting of the short ‘intro track’ (which has so far been an institution in Moonsorrow’s music) as the ‘interlude track’.

The preview is exciting. There is a real vitality to be heard here, which is welcome in a genre which currently lacks strength. Expect a full review when its released.

For now, listen at their myspace.

Nergal Hospitalized AGAIN!

So after that bone marrow transplant back in December, everybody’s favorite polack got himself into some trouble again. He has developed an infection, whose danger is heightened because of his reduced immune system.

Dr. Maria Bieniaszewska wasted no time in selling ‘ol Adam Darski out stating, "The patient was taken to hospital again because he did not take care of himself."

Come on buddy, we can’t help you if you don’t help yourself.

TRON’s Legacy and its 4 Messages to Mankind


I’ve always loved the concept behind Tron. The idea of a man being able to go inside a computer program is beyond incredible in any geek’s most romantic of fantasies. The problem with it is that when they tried to make a movie out of it in the 80s, technology back then wasn’t so kind to imaginative minds (although you could argue that George Lucas did a lot more with it, and he did it back in the 70s). That is why this new Tron movie had me excited; because with today’s crazy CG shit the world of the Grid could be realized to its full potential. I went to see this yesterday to dazzle at the on-screen fireworks, but I was amazingly surprised to everything else that is in this movie.

Operation Payback Shuts Down IFPI Site

“Vivendi Universal, EMI, Warner Music and Sony Music’s main IFPI (International Federation of Phonographic Industry) website is down. Not coincidentally, there’s an Operation Payback post addressing the Pirate Bay crew’s lost sentencing appeal: ‘Dear IFPI, MAFIAA and other parasites, The recent verdict in the Swedish Appeal Court (ThePirateBay spectrial) provoked this statement from Operation: Payback. We emphasize our statement with a Distributed Denial-of-Service attack aimed at the IFPI’s website.’”

This probably isnt going to amount to anything but I think its a nice gesture to show the “MAFIAA” and the like the collective annoyance towards them.

Piratebay founders lose appeal

“Three of the four founders of The Pirate Bay have lost an appeal against their conviction last year of helping to share copyrighted material. It wasn’t a total waste of time, however. The three have had their one-year jail sentences cut to between four and ten months. (The fourth founder was too ill to appear in court, and will appeal separately.) The foursome also had their fine bumped from 32 million kronor ($4.5 million) to 46 million kronor ($6.5 million).”

I call this bullshit but i guess thats what you get for going up against the deep-pocketed copyright holders

TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIME!!!
7 Years and 20 Days and it's finally out!
