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.

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.

Cannibal Corpse checks after completing the first two weeks of their European tour:

“Hey everybody, I just wanted to let you all know how our European tour is going so far. Today we're playing in Slovenia, which will be the 14th show of the tour, so this show marks the halfway point. So far all of the shows have gone really well, the audiences have been excellent night after night. We also were very happy to finally play in Romania and Bulgaria. It was our first time playing in either of those countries, but it certainly won't be the last. Both countries have great death metal scenes, and we hope to return there when we tour for our next album. The other countries we've been through so far have been: France, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, and Serbia, which was last night. We've met a ton of cool people at every show, so I'd like to say hello and thanks to any of you who might be reading this. OK, sound check is going to start in a few minutes, so I'd better get going. Thanks again to all the fans who have come to the shows so far, see the rest of you soon!"

Cannibal Corpse just embarked on the second leg of their tour. Joining them are Disavowed and Mortem.

Goatwhore will be hitting the road on March 23rd for a three week long run with 1349, Nachtmystium and Averse Sefira. They will follow the tour with two weeks of headlining dates before heading to Germany for their first ever European tour, “The Excess of Evil” with Marduk, Enslaved, Keep of Kalessin, Melechesh, and Pantheon I.

“We would like to send our thanks out to all the guys from God Forbid, Mnemic, Arsis, The Human Abstract, and Byzantine for making the January thru February "Chains Of Humanity" Tour a complete success!! A big thanks goes out to the guys in God Forbid for making the whole tour possible!! Hope to see you all on the road soon and in the meantime STAY SICK, STAY FUCK!!”
