PENTACLE is currently negotiating with another label to release the "Archaic Undead Fury" EP as Metal War Productions has dropped this project. Mike’s injury is getting better but progress is slow and for this year he will not play any live gigs.
ATOMKRAFT, featuring former VENOM vocalist / MANTAS bassist Tony Dolan, will be releasing a new EP entitled "Are You Looking At Me?" in November. It will contain the tracks ‘Dead Again!’, ‘Kristalnacht’, ‘Cold Sweat’ (THIN LIZZY cover) and ‘Gripped’. ATOMKRAFT’s new full length album, entitled "I Couldn’t Give A Fuck!", is due to be released some time next year.

INCANTATION frontman John McEntee has posted the following message on the band’s official website: "We have just returned from Europe and the Harvest Festivals with NILE, UNLEASHED, PUNGENT STENCH, BEHEMOTH and BELPHEGOR. The festival tour was a great success, the shows were some of the best we have ever done in Europe. All the bands and crew did a fantastic job every night, it was a great experience for us. We want to thank Metallysee, World Management, Listenable and everyone else involved that made the tour a great experience. Also many hails go out to all the Metalheads that came out and showed their support every night!!! We have officially been picked up by Century Media Records for North America after the closing of Olympic Recordings do to some issues with the United States Olympic Committee. The writing process is in full swing for the eighth INCANTATION studio album, still untitled. We are looking to record early spring next year for a fall 2006 release."
