Swedish DIABOLICAL will release their new album "Ars Vitae" on January 21, 2011 through ViciSolum Productions. It contains 17 tracks; both new studio- and previously unreleased live recordings. The record was produced by founding member Sverker Widgren at Necromorbus Studios (Watain, Destroyer 666, Demonical etc) and is the band’s first official release since 2008’s "The Gallery Of Bleeding Art". The new track ‘Eye’ has been published at the MySpace site of Dreamtide Music www.myspace.com/dreamtidemusic. Guitarist Carl Stjärnlöv had this to say about the album and upcoming activities: "We are looking forward to have this record out and even more to tour Europe again doing some new songs that we haven’t played for 10 years. We have a very exciting time ahead of us."
San Antonio’s blackened Thrashers HOD have been hard at work on the follow up to last year’s well-received "Serpent" album. Guitarist Carl "Lord Necron" Snyder issued the following statement: "It looks that there is no rest for the wicked in sight. We have been writing new material for our upcoming album. I can tell that we have a tentative title for the album now. "Book Of The Worm" is the working title. Some of the song titles are ‘Walking Wounded’, ‘Den Of Wolves’, ‘Apocalyptic Death Whore’, ‘Under Tyranny’s Hammer’ to name a few. We will be recording a live show to include as a DVD for the next album as well. HOD will opening for WATAIN in Austin, TX on Nov 23rd. This show will be recorded for the DVD. So we suggest everyone get to this show so they can be part of the action. It will be a multi camera pro shot DVD. We will busy on the live front through the end of the year. We will be sharing the stage with some great bands in the next couple of months. Bands like Watain, Impiety, Inquisition, Ghoul, Weapon, Black Witchery, Blasphemophager, and the list goes on. You have been warned. The fire is just starting." More info at www.myspace.com/hodtheband
