French masters of brutal Death KRONOS have posted the following statement regarding their development in the writting process of their 3rd full length album:
"The band is now working hard on the writing of new songs for the third album. We can already announce that its tracks will be more extreme, fast, intense, technical and powerful than CTS! When this step will be completed, it is planned to make it real in August 2006 (in the Hertz studio in Poland) and the CD should be then available at the end of this year. Anyway we'll keep you up to date on this website all along the way and be sure that 2006 will be more than ever the year of the Titan!".
XTREEM MUSIC is proud to announce that the official re-issue of MORPHEUS DESCENDS' classic debut album "Ritual Of Infinity" is already out!!

The following message was posted on the bands official site:
"We're back from the OBSCENE EXTREME FESTIVAL in the Czech Republic!! Everything was fucking great and definitely exceeded all our expectations!! The organization was excellent and people came in a massive way!! Like 3.000 Grind/ Death maniacs attended and supported every band even under the fucking czech rain, haha!! We enjoyed very much our performance and want to thank everyone who did it with us too!!"
"Regarding the future of the band, apart of the European Tour planned for September, we're planning on recording a mini CD in November 2005 that will include 2 brand new songs, a remake of one of the two songs from our very first demo and three cover songs: GOREFEST "Mental Misery", WASP "I Wanna Be Somebody" and EXODUS "Piranha". This mini CD will be release in early 2006 by ELECTRIC CHAIR MUSIC (same label that have released the new GOLGOTHA album) for Spain and XTREEM MUSIC for the rest of the world. Regarding this release, the band would like to ask any band interested in doing an AVULSED cover to be featured on this CD, please get in touch at email@example.com for more details. We'd like to include at least three covers of AVULSED made by other bands, so if you're an AVULSED fan and play in a band and want to appear on this CD, write us!!"
Yes, an European tour for AVULSED is in the works!! After 8 long years since their latest Euro-tour, AVULSED is ready to devastate the ancient continent once again!! With an exceptional live performance, more powerful and brutal than ever, the GORESPATTERING EUROPE TOUR 2005 is being arranged by the italian Headbanging Agency and will have italian grinders GRIMNESS 69 (ex-Grimness) as support on this 16-dates carnage through 12 countries!!

Most of the dates are confirmed, so keep checking our official website for updates and possible changes (shit always happens, you know!!)

Now we're ready to annihilate the Obscene Extreme Festival in the Czech Republic on Saturday 9th of July!! After this we'll play another show here in Spain (Jerez) and then we won't play again until the European Tour, which by the way, will have a line-up change because Cabra can't do the tour due to his job obligations, so it'll be Alberto from KAOTHIC/ SKUNK D.F. who will take his place. He already played with AVULSED in the american tour in 2000 and did several spare shows like in the New Jersey Metal Fest, Paris (Last 19th of June) and some others.

HOUR OF PENANCE
The second album of Italy's most brutal band HOUR OF PENANCE if finished!! "Pageantry For Martyrs" is the sophomore release of this incredible outfit that already impressed the scene with their debut album "Disturbance" in 2003 which got nothing but excellent reviews everywhere. This new album has a superb production and shows a more intense, brutal and mature band that definitely stablish their name in the scene and will be specially appreciated by fans of bands like HATE ETERNAL, NILE and SUFFOCATION.
"Pageantry For Martyrs" includes the following tracks:
01. Towards Our Storm
02. Shreds Of Martyr
03. End Of Relief
04. Celebrating Collective Terror
05. Far Beyond Humiliation
06. Life In A Pain Amplifier
07. Exiled Innocence
08. Naked Knife Absolution
09. Deranged Parasite
This is what the band has recently declared about this album and some other happenings in their official website:
We're glad to announce that the mixing session of our 2nd full-length CD, entitled "Pageantry For Martyrs", is finished! We worked very hard in these last two months to bring you another DM merciless assault in the vein of what you've heard with our previous "Disturbance", and now we're glad to claim that "Pageantry For Martyrs" will definitively blow your stereo player away! 10 songs of twisted extreme music, more than 40 minutes of total Death Metal insanity, an intense mix of American and European brutality with killing production... you'll love this.
We also want to make official the new that Mike left the band before the beginning of the recording session. This decision was due to Mike's lack of time and interest regarding all H.O.P.'s activities, last but not least the making of this album. Mike was one of the founding members of the band, and sure this was not an easy decision to take. Anyway, we don't forget what Mike gave to H.O.P. in these five years, therefore we want to thank him and wish good luck to him for the future. On the other hand, we were really lucky to find immediately a new excellent vocalist in Alex (also singer of NECROTORTURE). His total commitment and his imaginative interpretation of our new songs are perhaps the main features of this H.O.P.'s new killing release. We'll soon make official also the new bass player's name".
The release date for HOUR PF PENANCE's "Pageantry For Martyrs" has been set for June 1st and you can actually download an exclusive advance mp3 song by entering the LABEL section of XTREEM MUSIC. More info can be found at the band's official website http://www.hourofpenance.com

Here are the latest happennings in the spanish Death Metal band AVULSED camp according to their official website:
"It took way longer than expected for the mixing process of "Gorespattered Suicide" album, but it's finally done!! Initially it was supposed to be done during the 2nd week of September, but no less than 5 hurricanes passed through Florida where Erik Rutan was mixing and mastering the album at his own studios. After this, he was ill for some days... but it was well worth the wait!! The master is in our hands and we must say it sounds great!! We're really satisfied of the mixing and we can state that this might be our best album to date!!
"Gorespattered Suicide" has all the usual ingredients in AVULSED's style, but it's by far the most brutal, aggressive and intense effort, to which our new drummer Riky has contributed enormously!! You can download a new song by entering our NEWS section.
As for the artwork, it's also finished and we can also say it's the most extreme artwork we've ever had for any of our albums!! Sure it'll be banner somewhere, but just in case we've prepared an alternative cover, hehe!! You can see a larger album cover as well as the complete CD design by entering our NEWS section.
Our planned tour for April 2005 through Japan, Australia & New Zealand is slowly taking shape, so you can check some advance dates as well as our upcoming festival appearances in early November in Germany & France on the SHOWS section.
Please, write us your comments about the new song and the artwork in our guestbook!! We're eager to hear your opinions!!"
Spanish melodic Death Metal newcomers ANVIL OF DOOM have just finished the recording of their debut album "Deathillusion" with an excellent result!! After a delay of various months over the scheduled release date, we at XTREEM MUSIC are proud to say that the wait was well worth!!
Never before in Spain, there was such an amazing band creating such an unique brand of melodic, aggressive & technical Death Metal avoiding the typical imitations. Sure there's influences in their music from bands like ARCH ENEMY, CHILDREN OF BODOM, IN FLAMES, SOILWORK, DEATH... but they're blended and incorporated to their music in a masterly way with an excellent vocal performance and killer guitar solos. If this band would've been signed by a label like NUCLEAR BLAST, we could be talking about the new melodic Death Metal heroes... (but instead, they prefer to sign C.O.B. clones like IMPERANON, haha!!)
"Deathillusion" includes the following songs:
02. Mr. Suic’hyde
03. Forgotten Embryos
05. Purifying Rain (instr.)
06. Everlasting Pain
07. Dreams Voyager
10. Let the Earth Breathe
If you want to hear an exclusive mp3 advance of the song "Forgotten Embryos", please check our the mp3's part on the LABEL section... and enjoy!!!
The release date for "Deathillusion" is scheduled for September 15th. You can find more information about the band on their official website http://www.anvilofdoom.com
Today, 30th of July, AVULSED is entering the VRS Studios in Madrid were bands like HUMAN MINCER & WORMED previously recorded their works to start the recordings of what will be the band's 4th full length album (8th CD on their career) under the title of "Gorespattered Suicide". The recording sessions will take like 10 days after which the mix and mastering will take care of Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL/ ex-MORBID ANGEL) at his own Mana Recording Studios in Florida during the first week of September.
"Gorespattered Suicide" will inlcude 11 own songs plus a cover of the song "Ace Of Spades" by MOTÖRHEAD. The song titles will be the following: "Burnt But Not Carbonized", "Gorespattered Suicide", "Eat Foetal Mush", "4 N Sick", "Filth Injected", "Protervia", "Let Me Taste Your Flesh", "Harvesting The Blood", "Infernal Haemorrhoids", "Divine Wine" and a still untitled instrumental song.
In the meantime, the cover artwork and complete CD design will be done by Sven de Caluwé from Dirged Design (www.dirged.be) better known for being ABORTED's vocalist. Such work will be, without any doubt, the most brutal, extreme and sick one ever used by the band, showing again their position of refusal to be submitted on the stablished censorship by certain distributors and CD manufacturers in Europe.
Also, Metal Age Productions, the current label of the band, has acquired the rights of the album "Yearning For The Grotesque" which will be reíssued by the end of the year. Also around the same dates, it's scheduled that the same label reíssue on a double CD the works "Seven Years Of Decay" (demos and rarities) together with "Bloodcovered" (cover songs) that will include some bonus tracks as well.
AVULSED will be playing spare shows through Spain, France & Portugal until the end of the year, but it won't be until December or January when they start the show to present their new album (scheduled for October/ November) through the whole spanish territory. There's also some negotiations with some promoters in Australia & Japan for a possible tour in both countries around April 2005, although this is on very early stages...
The title track to the upcoming PAGANIZER album, "No Divine Rapture", has been
posted online in MP3 format by clicking
The Swedish Death Metallers' fifth album, "No Divine Rapture" is scheduled for
release on July 15 through Xtreem Music. The CD was recorded at Soundlab Studio
with producer Mieszko Talarzcyk (NASUM) and features nine songs, including a
freshly-penned track in Swedish called "Ingen Utväg". "Anyone into PAGANIZER
will probably agree with us that this is our most crushing album to date and
the cover art kicks some serious ass as well", the band write on their web site.
Our long-time drummer Furni has decided to leave the band. After more than
10 years, personal reasons made him to take the decision to quit although his
departure is in good terms. In fact, Furni will still play on the live shows
that AVULSED has already scheduled whilst a replacement is found.
The band is actually talking with a few candidates and a replacement should
be announced soon, so the plans of recording the band's 4th full length album
in July/ August won't be affected at all. In fact, tha band has already decided
the new album's title: "Gorespilled Suicide". Depending on the band's
availability and studios schedules, the recordings might take place either in
Madrid at VBR Studios or again at germany's Spacelab Studios. Nothing's decided
yet about this, but what's sure is that the mastering will be done in Sweden
at Soundlab Studios by Mieszko Talarczyk from NASUM.
AVULSED has recently been confirmed for this years' edition of one of the most
famous extreme Metal festivals in Europe, the OBSCENE EXTREME FESTIVAL which
will take place in Trutnov (Czech Republic) during 8, 9 & 10th of July.
The band has also been confirmed for the ALAHURIN ROCK FEST. to take place in
Alhaurín (Málaga) in July 24h together with SARATOGA, EXHUMED
DAY and other Metal bands. More info about the fests can be found at: www.obscene.cz
PAGANIZER has decided to go on as a three piece once again. For the upcoming album "No Divine Rapture". The lineup will be Rogga [Guitars] and vocals, Fiebig [Drums] and Patrik [Bass].
This is what the band announced on their official website: "Further information on the leadguitar position on live performances will be posted at a later date but as no live shows yet are fully confirmed it's not an immediate problem. We'll probably play the Stellar Club during the Tuska Festival july this year but that's yet to be confirmed as some weekend dates in Germany this coming summer aswell. Make no mistake... we'll do anything to be able to play Europe during 2004.
Regarding the upcoming album "No Divine Rapture", no PAGANIZER fan will be disappointed, as the new stuff is both faster than the last album, faster at most times and frequently loads more brutal at all times. These songs will definetly live up to PAGANIZER standards as well as rip at least one or two new assholes for ya.
Expect nothing but brutality...".
Recordings for the new album will start in the last week of March until the first two weeks of April and mastering will be done by no other than Dan Swanö.
