"Clairvoyance", the third demo of HAZAEL, was just re-released on CD by Polish Psycho Records. The material was extremely inspired by old NIHILIST, GRAVE, NIRVAVA 2002 or ENTOMBED. The founder and leader of the band – Tomek Dobrzeniecki, is responsible for the graphic design. The twelve page booklet includes full lyrics, photos and interviews with HAZAEL. The CD also contains a multimedia section with a 1992 concert (the only recorded four piece performance with Wojtek Stasiak on bass). The first 100 copies come with a band poster and pin.

The following statement has been issued by Norwegian Black Metallers RAGNAROK: “We confirm that RAGNAROK is ending its collaboration with Regain Records and no further albums will be released on the label. We are currently in the process of looking at various offers from labels, but no decision has yet been taken, and if any labels are interested in working with the band they are more than welcome to contact us via our management at firstname.lastname@example.org” RAGNAROK is currently coming to the end of a very successful 14 date tour of Brazil and Mexico, and on their return the band will continue working on what will be their seventh full-length album. Formed in 1994, the last album, “Collectors of the King”, was released in 2010 after a six-year hiatus, during which time RAGNAROK underwent an almost total line up change, with drummer and founder member Jontho being the only original member left. Aside from Jontho on drums, the line up today consists of Hans Fyrste (vocals), DezeptiCunt (bass and backing vox) and Bolverk (guitars).
