Independent Music industry trade body Impala have awarded DEICIDE‘s last album "Scars Of The Crucifix" a silver disc in recognition of European sales. Glen Benton and Steve Asheim collected the disc on a recent visit to London and vowed to make sure new album "The Stench Of Redemption" receives gold.
AT THE GATES‘ "Slaughter Of The Soul" will be re-issued now as a special dual disc edition, updated with ‘The Making of "Slaughter Of The Soul", a 35 minute documentary which focuses on the method behind the madness that led to the construction of a truly important Metal record. Vocalist Tomas Lindberg and guitarist Martin Larsson, together with the now-legendary producer Frederik Nordstrom, take the recording process to pieces and attempt to explain how it became the monster it is now recognised as today. Filmed by acclaimed director Patric Ullaeus (Dimmu Borgir, Lacuna Coil) and interviewed by top Swedish journalist Patrik Wiren, the documentary reveals the story behind the legend, with discussions about the recording process, the theory behind the record and the creative tension that drove the band forward, bolstered by deleted scenes and the ‘Blinded By Fear’ promo video.
CHOP YOUR OWN HEAD OFF is the title of a 17-track compilation CD featuring exclusive Earache material from MUNICIPAL WASTE, DEICIDE, SEVERE TORTURE, DECAPITATED, CULT OF LUNA and many more. The CD also contains and exclusive peek into the Earache racing madness and includes a PC demo of the "Earache Extreme Metal Racing" game featuring AKERCOCKE and BIOMECHANICAL racing teams. "Chop Your Own Head Off" also includes a DVD disc packed with ultra-exclusive videos from Earache’s current and past catalog, including previously unreleased material from Death Metal legends MORBID ANGEL.
