World Under Blood posts new track online

published on May 26, 2011 by Zandra
"A God Among the Waste", a brand new song from melodic death metallers World Under Blood, can be streamed at this location. The track comes off the group's debut album "Tactical", set to be released on July 26 in North America.

Commented frontman Deron Miller : "A God Among the Waste, to me is an instant classic because it melts your face right at the start and then concludes with an opposing mellow ending. I'm told it has a great chorus and it's the first time I’ve recorded a guitar solo in 15 years. The first 8 or so seconds are the fastest the album ever gets and because of that, I made it the album opener so people are brutalized as soon as they press play. No bullshit intros or scary gothic synths; it just gets going faster than you can probably handle it.

World Under Blood is :

Deron Miller – guitar, vocals (CKY)
Tim Yeung – drums (Divine Heresy, Morbid Angel, ex-HATE ETERNAL, ex-DECREPIT BIRTH)
Risha Eryavac – bass (ex-Decrepit Birth)
Luke Jaeger – guitar (Sleep Terror)

Former Legion Of The Damned Twan Fleuren committed Suicide

published on May 24, 2011 by Zandra
Children Of The Damned members have issued the following statement on their official website :

After swallowing the departure of guitarist Richard Ebisch a few weeks ago, Legion of the damned got yet another sad news delivered to their camp: ex bassplayer and friend Twan Fleuren commited suicide.

Twan joined the band Occult in 1998 where he directly joined them on a tour with Morbid Angel, Amon Amarth and Gorgoroth in 1999, after the recording of Occult's "Rage to revenge" in 2001 and 2 great tours with Dark Funeral in 2001 and Exodus, Nuclear Assault and Agent Steel in 2003, Twan Fleuren was also at the beginning of the succes of Legion of the damned and recorded with the band the legendary "Elegy for the weak" with Andy Classen in 2003 that was later re-released under the name "Feel the blade" in 2007, as well as the recording of "Malevolent rapture" in 2004, which was released in 2006, the album that brought Legion of the damned to a level where they are in right now.

Twan Fleuren was also part of the first Legion of the damned tour that took place in 2006 with no one less than Kataklysm and Cannibal Corpse, however, Twan left the band half way the tour because his, at that time, baby born son was hospitalized, the band then agreed that it would be better for Twan to leave the band because doing the band and having its family was to complicated at that point, he was then replaced by bassplayer Harold Gielen in 2006.


About Twan's lost singer Maurice states: "Another very sad day in the Legion camp, Twan has been a great friend and we lost contact for several years because he was in some difficult times, only a few weeks back we were all back in contact again and it felt like these great old times were about to return, even Erik and me joined him on a terrace for a beer or 2 a few weeks ago, he even wanted to join us to With Full Force in July, where I was really looking forward to, he even showed alot of intrest in our new guitarplayer and the departure of Richard Ebisch. The bad news that came in today struck as a bomb not for me only personally but also for the band Legion of the damned.

Ofcourse we wish his family and kids all the strength they need in this process. We will miss you brother and ofcourse all of the upcoming Legion of the damned shows will be dedicated in his name!" Drummer Erik announced following: "Yet another sad day in the history of Legion of the damned. We knew that Twan had to face some extreme difficult times, but we certainly did not expect this, he was about to join us at some upcoming festivals and we were really looking forward to that. Maurice and I are happy that we still had a nice chat and drink with him at a terrace not so long ago after a really long time of not seeing eachother, rest in peace my friend and my sincere condolences to his family
"

Andy Siry / Boomer Entertainment (management) states: "When Maurice informed me this afternoon that Twan commited suicide I was totally shocked and speechless. I remember when I met Twan at the first LEGION OF THE DAMNED tour in 2006 (with Cannibal Corpse, Kataklysm). Twan was a very kind and nice man and a good bass player. Our ‚beer talks' was always funny. Twan made the decision to leave the band during this tour to take care of his wife and his two kids … and now this terrible news … and the big open question is ofcourse why??? What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we cannot understand why Twan left this earth so soon, but little by little, we will begin to remember not just that Twan died, but that he lived. And that his life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. Twan will always stay a member of the LEGION OF THE DAMNED! RIP – brother , see you on the other side, and my condolances to Cristel, Nina & Joep & his family."

Vildhjarta signs worldwide deal with Century Media

published on May 22, 2011 by Zandra
Century Media has issued the following statement :

"It is with great pleasure that Century Media announces the worldwide signing of Swedish progenitors, VILDHJARTA! One of the most respected bands in the scene today, VILDHJARTA mixes ambient, peaceful moments with brutal and dark music to create some of the most awe inspiring and unique musical output in modern metal.

Hyped since their early days, thanks to short demos that circulated the web amongst fans of groove metal, they have taken more than half a decade to musically advance to a point where their unexpected endeavors leave the listener in a state of blissful confusion. After years of courting, VILDHJARTA now joins forces with metal label giant Century Media and will be unleashing a new full length in the coming months. The band had this to say in regards to the singing:

"THALL"

Guitarist Sebas Bloeddorst parts ways with Heidevolk

published on May 20, 2011 by Zandra
Sebas Bloeddorst, the guitarist and founding member of Heidevolk, has issued the following statement :
"After 9 years I have decided to leave the band Heidevolk. When I founded the band in 2002 I have done this to, as an artist, bring a message to the world, the proud pagan message of Heidevolk. Now I have noticed the time has slowly come for me to look to other things, and there for I have decided to focus myself more on Paganism and other musical projects I always wanted to work on but never had the time for.

The next CD will be my last with Heidevolk and I will leave the band in the fall of this year. Not without pain in my heart because with Heidevolk I have had some the best times of my life, which I will always remember.

I would like to thank my brothers of the band, all the fans, the crewmembers, and all organisers and contactpersons I worked with. Thank you all!! Heidevolk heerst Sebas Bloeddorst"

The band also added the following brief farewell: "We thank Sebas for the good times together, and wish him all the best in his future endeavours!
