According to an official statement from the band, italian Death Metal veterans HORRID wants to inform that:
"Robert, our former vocalist, has been removed from the band due to personal problems. HORRID is proud to announce a new replacement found in Satras, former singer of NIGHTWARD, which is now the official lead vocalist and he will be with us on stage since the very first show ever in Germany for HORRID".
XTREEM MUSIC feels prouder than ever to announce what's undoubtely the most
relevant signing in the label's 5-year history!! This is no other than the mighty
super-cult US Thrash/ Heavy Metal band HALLOWS EVE!! Having released three classic
albums on Metal Blade from '85 to '88, the band returned in 2005 with a self-financed
4th album entitled "Evil Never Dies" which has passed quite unnoticed
due to the lack of real promotion and distribution, so the band finally signed
a deal with XTREEM MUSIC for a worldwide release that will secure a proper exposure
for this long awaited return.
The new HALLOWS EVE line-up features two original members form the 1st album:
Tommy Stewart (bass/ vocals) & Skullator (guitar/ vocals) and their style,
although still retaining their original doses of that powerful blend of Thrash
& Heavy Metal, has incorporated more current influences from styles such
as Death Metal with even some blast beats!! The current band's style is for
sure pretty different to what it used to be 20 years ago, being a lot heavier
and more aggresssive but standing out the great variety throughout the entire
album which makes it a really varied and interesting work.
You can actually read a few interviews and reviews in the following links:

XTREEM MUSIC is more than proud to announce the addition of San Diego's old school Death mongers DEATHEVOKATION to their ranks!! With only one demo out, simply titled “Blood” and recorded during the first months of 2005, this band lead by German Götz Vogelsang has an overwhelming impact on the Underground. This awesome demo features three songs in the vein of mighty ancient masters like UNLEASHED, BOLT THROWER, ASPHYX, AUTOPSY... and being able to transmit such sound and feeling is one of the most difficult things to achieve nowadays.
This demo has already been rated 10/10 in Germany’s biggest extreme Metal magazine LEGACY and is also going to have a very special feature in US's METAL MANIACS. The demo has been released the old way, this is on pro-done cassette accompanied by a 3"Mini-CD with the same songs on mp3 format, but it has also recently been released on CD-R format for the less old school minded ones that prefer the digital facilities.
The band's debut album is expected to be released by the end of 2006 and they're currently jamming with their new drummer revamping the demo songs as well as doing new ones with titles like: "Infinity Blights The Flesh", "Day Of Shadows", "The Chalice Of Ages" (the album title by the way) amongst others.
You can get more info on this great band on their incredibly original website http://www.deathevokation.com as well as buying their demo either through them or through XTREEM MUSIC.

Victor gallego, drummer of the colombian act MASACRE has died last Sunday, October 30th. We are very sad about this news and take the oportunity to send all our condolences and power to Victors relatives and also to the rest of the guys at the MASACRE camp.
The following message was posted on the webpage of the Eternal Night Fanzine: "When MASACRE released the EP "Barbarie y Sangre en Memoria de Cristo" back in 1993, the first thing that rule was the incredible drums on it. It was a blond guy called Victor Gallego playing them. Years later, Victor was still a part of this awesome band. With his serious look, his hairs getting longer with the time and his technique improving with every release. His drums still can be listened in the albums "Sacro", "Muerte verdadera Muerte" and "Total Death". Victor, your work is still in our memory..."

We would like to take the chance and adhere to these words of Eternal Night Magazine and Nelson Varela. Rest in peace Victor!
