Metal Blade Records News & Tour update - January 07, 2003

News: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

THE CROWN Update - Info about the forthcoming album! The album won't be out until somewhere around the summer of 2003, but here is some info you might appreciate... an update from Mr. Olsfelt himself!

"Alright, we are right now in the process of rehearsing new material for the next album. This time we are heading for the ultimate and so far it sounds very promising. The new material is pretty diverse but in general the songs have more POWER. The songs are hard-hitting and straightforward with a more natural flow so that the energy and force comes straight back to you. Some titles are: NO TOMORROW, FACE OF DESTRUCTION/DEEP HIT OF DEATH, ARE YOU MORBID?, COLD IS THE GRAVE, KILL ´EM ALL, NATASHEAD OVERDRIVE, DAWN OF EMPTINESS, CROWN OF THORNS ... and there's more coming up of that wild-style mix of true deathmetalthrashpunkblackhardrockhorrormelody-shit going on! So it seems like you will have to deal with the ultimate THE CROWN album ever next year. - Be forewarned! /Magnus"

CALLENISH CIRCLE to begin recording material for new album on January 9, 2003! After months of writing, composing, rehearsing and sweating in their rehearsal room (a.k.a. "The Loodz") it's finally time to record the new (and meanwhile 4th) full length album "My Passion // Your Pain". Eight brand new tunes and a cover song (from legendary Dutch band Pestilence) will be recorded at Stage One Studio in Germany, together once again with producer Andy Classen. The recordings will last for about 5 weeks, so there should hopefully be MP3 previews soon. Be prepared for some f*ckin' ass-kicking Death/Thrash on LSD!!!

Could this label be any worse? Aside from Amon Amarth and In Extremo MB bands are painful to listen to.

Oh. Now we can see the bands that Metal Blade is promoting when they wouldn't even let King Diamond go on the road. Frightening!
