SHINING have just published the following press release: "We have just returned from the "Razors Across Europe" tour we made throughout Europe. The ten ceremonies, and three emergency hospital visits, were more or less successful and we will soon return better and even more determined of your demise soon. We did face some real severe problems in Budapest though due to our drummer and had to cancell the show because of this however, we will be back shortly in order to fuck you up in a more sincere and professional way! We would like to thank foremost URGEHAL for coming along and prooving that there still are some genuine Black Metal bands out there not bowing for anyone or anything, and a massive thanks to my long time partner in crime Attila Cshair for helping us out in Budapest (without you, Ludwig would have probably been dead by now)… Some days ago we entered the caverns of Radio Halland in order to record our fifth studio album and if we manage to keep the time scheduele we have set this pernicious piece of malignancy should be finished and ready for release within 4 weeks. "V / Halmstad", will contain six tracks of the darkest, yet most controversial, material we have written to date! Tracklisting is as follows: ‘Yttligare Ett Steg Närmare Total Jävla Utfrysning’ (yet another step towards complete fucking desolation), ‘Längtar Bort Från Mitt Hjärta’ (longing away from my heart), ‘Låt Oss Ta Allt Från Varandra’ (let us take all from the one and the other), ‘Besvikelsens Dystra Monotoni’ (the dismal monotony of dissapointments), ‘Åttiosextusenfyrahundra’ (eightthousandfourhundered) and ‘Neka Morgondagen’ (deny the day of towmorrow). Apart from this we have also recorded a few additional tracks which will be used for an upcoming EP release, titled "Ett Steg I Helt Fel Riktning", which should be released sometime at the end of the year most likely featuring the video we’re currently making as bonus… For those still unaware, Casado left the band and have been replaced by Gråby (ex-ONDSKAPT) and John Doe, the king of SG and psychotic behaviour, by Huss. We wish him all the success with his future projects and performances. Kvarforth, on behalf of Halmstad Death Squadrons." www.shiningangst.se
HATE ETERNAL have posted the following message on their official website: "We wanted to let you all know we have finally secured European dates that will not get cancelled. We want to apologize to all our European fans for the delay and cancellations due to problems within the band. We are ecstatic about touring Europe and proud to announce Reno Kiilerich (ex-DIMMU BORGIR, DEW-SCENTED, VILE, PANZERCHRIST) as our drummer for this European tour. Reno has done tremendous things in the genre and we are very excited to welcome him to the fold. He will do an amazing job and we are very eager to tour together. Our USA tour with CHIMAIRA and ARCH ENEMY has been incredible, close to 1,000 people a night and has been one of the best tours we have ever done. Stand-in drummer Kevin Talley (ex-CHIMAIRA, MISERY INDEX) is doing an incredible job and tearing it up every night. We really feel rejuvenated and this tour has been truly amazing. Look forward to seeing you all out there soon!"
