As some of you might have heard: Volker of MERCILESS RECORDS will stop the mailorder for an indefinite period of time. He says the main reasons for that decision are frustration, exhaustion and the lack of enthusiasm. For him right now it is unsure if he ever will return in this form to the scene. Nonetheless we wish him all the best for the future and thank him for the great work he did for the Metal underground! The mailorder will stop its work September 15, 2007 so make sure you drop by for a visit to get some of the great-sale offers and help Volker get rid of his stuff: www.merciless-records.de
NYC Thrashers SUN DESCENDS premiered the first song from their new CD titled "The Entropy Formula", on the band’s Myspace site. The 6 minute track ‘3 Corners Of Hell’ is the first new material to surface in 1 1/2 years since the band’s first full-length release in early 2006. The band is going to negotiate a North American deal for the new album and is currently looking for a suitable label. Mem V. Stein: "The music on SUN DESCENDS’s new album is as relevant as the music on "Possessed By Fire", which I recorded with EXUMER back in 1986. Let’s just hope that the Thrash frenzy of today won’t be exploited as it was in the 80s, causing Thrash Metal to come to a creative full-stop. Otherwise I am amazed at the comeback Thrash Metal has made and I am very hopeful that the new SUN DESCENDS album will be received positively." The band will perform live for the first time in over a year on September 6 in Worcester, Massachusetts, with fellow Mass. Thrashers THE ACCURSED.
