ARCTURUS

Bleeding Poet - 20/04/2007 Top

Bad news for the ARCTURUS camp.

According to the announcement they posted in their official website, the band no longer exists.

Here's their announcement:

A lot of rumours have been going around after our gig in Melbourne. Simen opened the concert with the words "Welcome to the last Arcturus-show ever". This is a decision we made some time ago. We all have a lot of things going on in our carreers and our lives, and therefore can not find the time to continue working with this band.

We are humble and grateful to all the people that have supported and loved us over the years.

Regards,

Steinar Sverd Johnsen
Hellhammer
Simen Haestnes
Knut Magne Valle

LACRIMAS PROFUNDERE vocalist and co-founder Christopher Schmidt decided to leave the band. Here is the relevant announcement as posted on the band’s official website:
"I don’t feel able to combine the permanent stress (of touring, concerts and of the general turbulences regarding the music business) with my "normal" life and my future."
In this case he often quotes his collegues of the "Strokes" with: "I wonna be forgotten and I don´t wonna be reminded."
Christopher doesn´t want to leave the stage without saying "thank you" to all the fans of Lacrimas Profundere for all the brilliant years of "Rock´n´sad".
The complete Band regret his decision but feel pretty happy about the fact that Christopher will be with Lacrimas Profundere as a lyricist and songwriter. The "LACRIMAS sound" will not change, because the brothers Oliver and Christopher co-operate as before, and Christopher will put some vocallines on the next album too!

TURISAS

Bleeding Poet - 01/04/2007 Top

Finnish folg metal band TURISAS announced details on their upcoming release “The Varangian Way”:
The album was recorded at Sound Supreme Studio and then mixed and mastered at Finnvox Studio. It is a concept story and according to the band’s vocalist and producer Warlord:
“It's a journey of a group of Northmen, who travel down the East-European river route through the lands of modern day East Europe. This was an important trade route in the 9th-11th centuries and the Northmen going in this direction were called Varangians who took this route to Kiev and finally Constantinople. The album follows this journey and the songs are events that take place on the road. As much as it is a journey of these men, it is also a journey in a search for self and identity - something which the protagonist is going through throughout the story. The varying surroundings can clearly be heard on the album as it features a lot of influences from the different cultures and people our travellers would have encountered on their journey
. Making this album was a very challenging task. I started developing the idea and framework for the concept soon after "Battle Metal" was released in 2004 and it demanded a lot of groundwork and studying. The songs were written between mid-2005 and 2007 when it was clear what every song would be about. In the end of 2006 we were finally ready to enter Sound Supreme Studio together with co-producer Janne Saksa to record the album. It took over two and a half months of work to record the album and two weeks of mixing at Finnvox studio together with Teropekka Virtanen to finally finish the album in March 2007. The sound is big, pompous and orchestral, but also features a lot of progressive elements and ethnic influences. It's a daring blend of many different styles, but I'm confident that people are musically open minded enough to swallow this album. All in all I would say that it is a natural step forward from "Battle Metal" to a more mature sound - still definitely TURISAS, but at the same time different."
The album will be in stores across Europe in June.
Track-listing:
1. To Holmgard And Beyond
2. A Portage To The Unknown
3. Cursed Be Iron
4. Fields Of Gold
5. In The Court Of Jarisleif
6. Five Hundred And One
7. The Dnieper Rapids
8. Miklagard Overture
The band will also appear in summer festivals like Graspop, With Full Force and Rock Hard Festival.

Bleeding Poet - 26/03/2007 Top

ARCH ENEMY announced the return of Christopher Amott to the band.
Having completed their 18-month touring promoting „Doomsday Machine“ album and “Live Apocalypse” DVD, they’re now ready to prepare their next album.
Christopher who left the band in 2005 for personal reasons is now returning to join forces with his brother Mike and take ARCH ENEMY one step further.
Here’s what Christopher says about his return:
“This is very exciting for me, returning to Arch Enemy as a fulltime member! Right now we are working on our forthcoming album, and I'm very pleased about the way it's turning out. The new songs are fast and furious with lots of melody! To all the people who sent me kind messages while I was out of the band, thank you for your support; it helped me a lot. After this (much needed) two-year break, I'm looking forward to getting back on the road. I hope to see you all later this year!"
Michael, on his side, comments:
“So, we are back with my brother Christopher on guitar - it's a huge rush to have him back playing in his signature style! He's jumped in at the end of the songwriting process for the new album and added some of his unique spice. I feel Christopher's playing has matured and is more precise and even faster than before! Guitar fans are going to freak out at the stuff we’re up to on the new album!"
ARCH ENEMY have spent recent weeks locked in intense rehearsals at their homebase in Halmstad, Sweden, putting the final touches on their new material and integrating Christopher into the new songs for the forthcoming studio album. More news on this will follow shortly.
