LOCK UP, featuring Tomas Lindberg (AT THE GATES, DISFEAR), Anton Reisenegger (PENTAGRAM CHILE, CRIMINAL), Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH, BRUJERIA,VENOMOUS CONCEPT) and Nick Barker (ex – CRADLE OF FILTH, ex – DIMMU BORGIR) will be playing a couple of European club shows in Febuary 2013 in support of their lastest album “Necropolis Transparent”. Drummer Nick Barker commented: “We’re really excited and looking forward to blasting our way across Europe in Febuary 2013. LOCK UP on the whole, don’t really get to do club tours very often so this is a great opportunity for us do what we do, get up close and in your face with the fans, in a more intimate setting as opposed to playing the bigger open air festival stages we’re accustomed to. Don’t get me wrong we love playing the big festivals, but with the brutal and savage nature of our music, its very well suited in a club enviroment and we feel both the band and fans vibe on that a lot more”.
NoiseArt Records have signed SVARTTJERN from Oslo, Norway. Their debut “Misanthropic Path Of Madness” was released in 2009 and the second album “Towards The Ultimate” in 2011. The band is currently busy working in the studio, with a release of the new album scheduled for early 2013. The band comments: “The dawn of the Snake is near, and so is an new era of SVARTTJERN, as future releases will be trough NoiseArt Records. Our next full-length is in the final phase of recording, and is due to release first half of 2013 – Year of the Snake. Gather the sinners! Alongside we have also joined forces with Rock The Nation, who will take care of booking and management in the future.” SVARTTJERN is comfirmed for EXTREMEFEST 2013 which takes place in Hünxe Germany from May 23 – May 25 2013.
