Earache Records have posted the new video for EXMORTEM‘s ‘Bitter Disciplin’ track. The song is taken from the band’s latest album, "Nihilistic Contentment". You can check it out here.
AURA NOIR bassist / vocalist Apollyon has posted the following message at the band’s official website (www.auranoir.com) in regards to guitarist Aggressor, who fell from the fourth floor of a building in Oslo, Norway on March 26th: "Carl Michael’s (aka Aggressor) condition is constantly improving. He’s waking up these days but it’s a long and delicate process that most probably is beyond painful for him both physically and mentally. Like ourselves he doesn’t have any idea of what really happened. Doctors are of course very modest when asked about his future. Then again they’re honest, so personally I consider it good news when they haven’t said anything for a long time. I think they would have told us by now if they knew of anything specific that is impossible to train back to decent shape. His family appreciates all of the support. Hades Rise! Come on Aggressor!!! – Apollyon."
In a recent interview with www.BraveWords.com, NECROPHAGIA / ex – IMMORTAL bassist Iscariah revealed that former Immortal frontman Abbath is currently hammering out new music. "I spoke to Abbath a few months ago and he’s keeping himself busy doing a demo with the guitar player from ENSLAVED. It’s taken quite some time because just before I moved to the UK (over a year ago) he came to my house and played some of the music to me. It’s got an "At The Heart Of Winter" kind of feel to it. It’s really heavy, really stong material. You can definitely hear who wrote it, and that’s a compliment. It’s brilliant stuff. I can’t wait for him to get back out there. Abbath is an amazing artist and an amazing stage presence. He needs to be out there."
According to a posting at Cold Records official website, IN BATTLE and the label have gone separate ways. Cold remarked says: "They did have four albums left on the contract, but we released them for free. No bad blood between us. Good luck guys to becoming rockstars." The Swedish Death Metallers are working on some new material for their next album, which they hope to release in late 2005.
