Talanas ©2013 Eulogy Media Ltd.

London, UK: The ‘Gentlemen of Death Metal’ have re-entered London’s Berry Street Studio throughout October / November to record the companion piece to 2012’s ‘corpseflower’ EP alongside confirming a UK tour in February 2014 as main support for Netherlands avant-garde death metallers The Monolith Deathcult.

Clocking in at around thirty minutes of total running time, the ‘asylum’ mini- album presents five entirely original tracks penned by the band following the one-off broadcast of an acoustic track written especially by them for ‘The Dark. Outside.’ – an event held at Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park in Scotland by guerrilla music promoter Stuart Mclean.  Having written & recorded their first entirely acoustic song, talanas then decided to develop a separate release solely for the format itself.

Handling production duties themselves, the quartet continue to use their seven string bass & guitars and their full custom Mapex drumkit (still the largest single kit made for an endorsee by Mapex UK) throughout the release, which will be made available in early December through Eulogy Media.

German metal band U.D.O., led by former Accept vocalist Udo Dirkschneider, have been regular visitors in Finland during the past years. The band released its 14th studio album STEELHAMMER on last May and it also introduced U.D.O.’s renewed line-up including Udo, longtime members: bassist Fitty and drummer Francisco Jovino, and new guitarist duo Kasper Heikkinen and Andrey Smirnow. It seems that U.D.O. is still enjoying such a strong success in Finland as they now played in front of a practically sold out Club Nosturi in Helsinki.

SEPULTURA RELEASES VIDEO FOR “THE VATICAN”

November 6th, 2013
by EvilG

“The Vatican,” a track off The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart, the new album by Brazilian band SEPULTURA, is now available for online viewing: http://smarturl.it/TheVatican

The translation of the Bible quote (Matthew 10:34) into English from the Latin (the official language of the Roman Catholic Church) in the video’s opening reads: “Do not think I came [to] send peace on earth; I came not to send peace, but a sword.”

“It shows various obscure facets of the church, from corruption to pedophilia, a dark side that many people like to ignore,” states SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser about the video.  “The actors were very well selected, all with strong and striking expressions.  The video tells the story of a priest who wants to leave the church because of all this dirt, and suffers pressure from the inside not to leave.  It’s rather heavy and tense.”
