Czech Republic-based MALIGNANT TUMOUR will enter Germany's Stage-One-Studio with Andy Classen (TANKARD, LEGION OF THE DAMNED, KRISIUN, HOLY MOSES) in February. The band's fourth full length album has a working title of Decibel Maniacs and is expected to be released in May/June 2010 via Sloakia's Metal Age Production.
Dobermann, the band formed by four former members of the Swedish death/thrash act THE CROWN, has officially changed its name to THE CROWN and has released audio samples of two brand new songs.
THE CROWN 2009 is:
Jonas Stålhammar (GOD MACABRE, MACABRE END, ABHOTH) - Vocals
Marko Tervonen - Rhythm Guitar
Marcus Sunesson - Lead Guitar
Magnus Olsfelt - Bass
Janne Saarenpää - Drums
Dobermann earlier in the year parted with vocalist Andreas "Whiplasher Bernadotte" Bergh of the Swedish industrial goth metal band DEATHSTARS and was said to be recording a collection of tunes which were being described as "pure death/thrash metal."
THE CROWN split up more than five years ago due to "too many tours gone bad due to not at all professional tour arrangements," according to a March 2004 statement released by Saarenpää. He added, "Coming home from tours with empty pockets, equipment falling apart and having a pile of bills on the doorstep is simply 'horns down'. Paying the bills with tour memories and floorscores is just not possible. We do love standing on stage but we don't know much about the business part, and that's a bad combination."
GENITORTURERS will unleash their fourth studio full length "Blackheart Revolution" over Europe on next January 18th. Bondage queen Gen and bassist David "Evil D" Vincent (of MORBID ANGEL fame) welcome you to corruption and debauchery delivered by sharp fingernails and sensuous raunchy vocals full of dirt and grit to make the devil blush.
The icing on the cake is the bonus track "2 Faced Traitor", to appear exclusively on the European version of the album!

AS MEMORY DIES, the Melodic Death Metal band from Italy, has just released their debut album "TRANSMUTATE" !
AS MEMORY DIES, born in September 2005 with the strong purpose to revisit Melodic Death Metal through a personal approach, conceived their debut album “TRANSMUTATE” as a musical portrait that speaks the tongue of transformation and change due to a style that constantly balances on the edge between harmony and aggression, instinct and refinement.
Blessed with a stunning artwork by Niklas Sundin, the artistic talent behind Cabin Fever Media and Dark Tranquillity, As Memory Dies’ first release finds in ambivalence the source of its own strength, gracefully shifting from intense and blasting up-tempos to acoustic and nursing suggestions, passing through groovy episodes and shades of epic tones.

Season of Mist Records set for a February 15th release, ROTTING CHRIST's upcoming album is entitled "AEALO", correlatively with the band's will to delve deeper than ever before into their Greek roots.
Frontman Sakis explains: "AEALO is the transcription of the ancient Greek word ΕΑΛΩ into the Latin alphabet. It means thrashing, catastrophe or destruction and reflects the musical and lyrical content of the album. The concept of 'AEALO' deals with the feelings of a warrior during a battle, therefore the album's title bears this sense of anger, fear and grief."
Those were the times that I was feeling thrilled when I first met Sepultura.As I go mad they made me feel more mad. At the end of 1980’s; two brothers ,in a perfect band, included the Brazilian ethnic musical ınstruments they had reached the top of thrash…But the case moved on and Max Cavalera took his wife ,also the manager of the band, Gloria and left the band… Soon Max created his new band SOULFLY. Cavalera who has succeeded in many Works, started a new album record in Los Angeles. I believe that he won’t make us feel disappointed about the new album and make us go mad again.About the recent Sepultura is, unfortunately still counting at the same point… I don’t like introducing the band with its only member, but the Sepultura ; who had made albums like Roots that changed my life, is only about Max Cavalera..and It’s was something that I really don’t want to say…
The Finnish band Kalmah is going to be with us in 2010… Album titled as ‘’ 12 Gauge’’ ; was recorded in 2009-summer at Tico Tico Studio,Finland and mastered at Cutting Room in Sweden. In the 6th album of Kalmah, there will be 9 new songs and a cover. From the explanation of band members, ’12 Gauge’ is a totally Kalmah album but could be found as new taste. So all we have to do is, sit and wait for it…
Bassist Vortex and keyboardist Mustis who have been playing with the band, explained that they had left the band because of personal reasons. Nevertheless band pronounced that they keep on banging and these breakups won’t change a thing.
