Sweden’s NARNIA have issued the following statement from C.J. Grimmark (guitars/keyboards):
“We are pleased to announce that we will do, not only one but TWO final appearances before the band will finally be put to sleep.
These two occations have been carefully chosen among the many wonderful audiences and fantastic concert promoters that we have met during the years.
On November 20th we’re excited and blessed to once again travel to Mexico City and headline the Together For The Revolution festival along with the great bands ROB ROCK, BECOMING THE ARCHETYPE and DEBORAH.
The great Grand Finale will take place at the Christmas Rocknight festival in Ennepetal, Germany. We have had the pleasure and honour to enter the stage of Haus Ennepetal several times before since the late 90s on the festivals Christmas Rocknight, Fishcore and Legends Of Rock. We value the loyalty of the audience and the promoter Detlev Westermann highly and we are happy to end our journey at this particular event.
We really hope to see each and everyone of you who is able to make it to these two VERY special concerts.”

Denver, Colorado thrash titans HAVOK will kick off their fall US tour today at the White Rabbit in San Antonio, Texas. The band’s latest jaunt will wind through over two weeks worth of dates before drawing to a close in Jacksonville, North Carolina. The band will be joined by Wretched and Armed For The Apocalypse. View tour poster HERE.
Formed in 2004, HAVOK released their debut full-length, Burn, via Candlelight Records last year. Said MetalSucks of the 12-track long player, “A little more technical, a little proggier, a little more epic, and a helluva lot catchier than the stuff their peers are playing…while every song on the album is guaranteed to give you roadburn, the songs are also dynamic, giving the album excellent replay value.” Added MetalReview: “It’s pretty simple. HAVOK‘s chops are top-notch, and their creative-within-borders style of songwriting sidesteps the beer-bonged and bong-toked dufus thrash metal. That stuff gets cranked out at an alarming rate. This stuff right here doesn’t get cranked out enough.” Blabbermouth gave the record an 8/10 rating saying, “..add it to your list of ‘Essential Thrash Albums of 2009,'” while AngryMetalGuy.com noted bluntly: “The riffing on Burn is fucking killer.“

The blog post can be viewed on Solid State’s official website at: http://www.solidstaterecords.com/artists/287/As_They_Sleep/blog/271/, providing insight behind the complex record’s focus on the rise and fall of various empires throughout history.
Dynasty is slated to hit stores on November 22nd, and delivers a package of brutally heavy and savagely technical death metal, tied together with the help of powerhouse audio wizard, Jason Suecof (All That Remains, Chimaira, Demon Hunter).
As They Sleep will support their sophomore effort on the road this December on the “Solid State Records: A Very Metal Christmas Tour”, alongside label-mates Living Sacrifice, The Showdown, Becoming the Archetype, and To Speak of Wolves.

“Solid State Records: A Very Metal Christmas Tour”…
Hailed as ‘The Best New Band in Death Metal’ by Kerrang!, Topeka’s death dealers DISKREET return with their full-length debut, Engage The Mechanicality. To see North American release this October 26th on Siege Of Amida Records via Candlelight USA, the eagerly anticipated 11-track assault is arguably one of the most technically brutal albums to emerge this year. Engage The Mechanicality takes every pulverizing aspect of the band’s 2007 Infernal Rise EP to a higher level of intensity. From face-melting drumming, to furious fretwork, and inhuman barks and bellows, this is an album that shows no mercy. Produced by the band, Engage the Mechanicalty was mixed by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage), and bears album artwork is courtesy of Par Ollofsson (Cult Of Luna, Psycroptic, Severed Savior).
Engage The Mechanicality Track Listing: 01. Engage (Intro)
02. Valley Of Kings
03. Serpents Tongue
04. Spinal Cord Collection
05. Bishop of War
06. The Fall of Mankind
07. We Are Legion
08. Human Harvest
09. Pawning the Sanctuary
11. Haunt Of Fear
To celebrate the release of Engage The Mechanicality, DISKREET have dubbed their appearance at the Hammerween 2010 costume and metal gathering at the massive Beaumont Club in Kansas City, Missouri on October 30th as the official release party for the album. The band will throw down in the 1200-capacity club alongside several other heavy-hitters including the headlining Hammerlord (features ex/current members of The Esoteric, Nodes of Ranvier, The Blinding Light).

One of the hottest new bands to storm onto the metalcore scene in years is undoubtedly ASKING ALEXANDRIA, a UK sensation that is now currently making major waves throughout the world. This is easily the UK’s most notable metal export of the decade and they have captured the hearts of the youth with their overly energetic and entertaining live performances.
ASKING ALEXANDRIA just filmed a video for their track “A Prophecy” with acclaimed director Robby Starbuck (August Burns Red, Silverstein) and head over now to www.myspace.com/askingalexandria now to check out some of the stellar live action shots. Look for the video to surface sometime next month.
The group kicked off a massive North American tour as direct support to All That Remains this past week, which runs through Nov. 14th. If you haven’t witnessed a live ASKING ALEXANDRIA show then you are truly missing out on what is unquestionably one of the most intense and physical live events that will surely leave you begging for more. Either see below or visit the band’s MySpace page to view their complete touring itinerary.
Bruce checks in from tour with the following report: “From 6PM through until 6AM the following morning. One of the most grueling and punishing 12 hours of my life. The video shoot for ‘A Prophecy’ tested our physical and mental stability. We shot the video in the backroads of downtown LA. Rain machines, fire, cold weather and freezing water conditions in strangers pools were just some of the things we had to endure through out the video shoot. We were all very sick whilst shooting this due to the extreme conditions we were asked to perform in. Blisters on our feet, growling, empty stomachs and lots of make up and hairspray that spent less time where it was intended draining into our mouths due to the rain, but it was all worth going through. The video shoot was quite the experience, and we can’t wait to show the world how it has come out. “So far the tour has been amazing. Its such an honor to be sharing the stage with All That Remains. We are all huge fans of the band, and it’s been a great time getting to know them and watch them perform every night. This tour is a really great opportunity for us as we are getting the chance to perform infront of alot of new people who wouldn’t necessarily come to our shows. I’m sure it’s going to be amazing the whole way through, so hopefully you can make it out.”
ASKING ALEXANDRIA fans rejoice as a new release, Stand Up And Scream (Stepped Up And Scratched), is now set for a Dec. release. This is essentially a remixed, dub step version of their debut album. New artwork and packaging will also be a part of this release and released online over the coming weeks.
ASKING ALEXANDRIA’s highly acclaimed debut offering, Stand Up and Scream, quickly caught everyone’s attention as they combined hardcore music with European Trance, soft catchy melodies and a sound more mature than just your average play by numbers hardcore outfit. This was just the refreshing new sound that people have been waiting for. ASKING ALEXANDRIA – Fall Touring Schedule W/ALL THAT REMAINS 10/21/10 Farmington, NM @Gators w/ BORN OF OSIRIS

“The Finnish Metal Tour 2” to kick off this winter
HELSINKI, FINLAND – Finland’s new wave prog/death metal supergroup has announced a specially priced bundle pack of the band’s critically acclaimed debut EP, ‘Our Twilight’, and debut LP, Curse of the Red River, in anticipation of their first ever North American tour, “The Finnish Metal Tour 2”. Both albums can be purchased together through the Peaceville Records webstore at:http://www.burningshed.com/store/peaceville/product/261/2362/.
What started out as a mere side project featuring members of Moonsorrow, Swallow The Sun, Kreator, and more, has evolved into full-fledged heavy metal titan. Barren Earth is set to bring their brand of forward thinking, keyboard soaked metal to North America for their debut US tour, alongside fellow countrymen Finntroll, Ensiferum and Rotten Sound, set to take place throughout February 2011.
“To be a part of an exciting package of quality Finnish metal (and accomplished beer hounds) in the “The Finnish Metal Tour 2” lineup is certainly a fortunate opportunity for us to embark on our first international tour as Barren Earth,” states guitarist, Janne Perttilä. “We’re eagerly looking forward to spreading the Curse Of The Red River for our overseas friends, old and new!”
Virginia’s epic doom unit WHILE HEAVEN WEPT will be releasing their first live album via Italy’s diverse Cruz Del Sur Music, on December 7, 2010.
The material on the album was pulled from a 24-track audio capture of WHILE HEAVEN WEPT’s performance at the Hammer Of Doom Festival in Würzburg, Germany on February 6th, 2010. The master was synchronized to the pro-shot multi-camera footage, resulting in the band’s very first DVD. The end product, Triumph:Tragedy:Transcendence – Live At The Hammer Of Doom Festival, will be released as a CD/DVD set, showcasing both high quality audio and video evidence of the monumental performance.

British technical death metallers THE BOY WILL DROWN are currently on the road in Europe and have completed the second leg of their headlining European tour.
THE BOY WILL DROWN have just finished the second run of shows, which saw them perform throughout mainland Europe with support from FORGETTOFORGIVE. The band is returning to the UK for the final leg of the tour, which includes some rescheduled shows.
THE BOY WILL DROWN update from the road:
“We’ve had an amazing time with FORGETTOFORGIVE and we all left as good friends! They’re an amazing band and amazing people so we certainly recommend people check ’em out. Great shows were played and more awesome sights were seen. Waking up to the sunny view of the Swiss Alps is something none of us, I think, will ever forget. Makes all the problems we’ve experienced on tour seem insignificant.
“We also say bye to our good mate Ryan Mason; we got some awesome footage, photos and good times! Currently being edited so updates will be available and floating about soon. It was an absolute pleasure to have him onboard and we’ll hopefully be seeing him on future tours soon for more of his ‘Painting & Decorating’ skills!
“After a few days rest at home, we’re now on the final leg of the tour, this time with Eradication. A few changes have been made to the schedule.”

Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB are gearing up for their first ever North American tour, which kicks off this Saturday, October 23rd in Seattle, Washington.
GAMA BOMB will be tearing around the USA and Canada with the likes of OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, EVILE, BONDED BY BLOOD and DRI, and will be out on the road until just before Christmas.
GAMA BOMB frontman PHILLY BYRNE reveals how the band has been preparing for such a huge tour so far away:
“Speaking to embassy people through bullet-proof glass; working out how long a pair of underpants can be made to last; factoring in strepped throat, voltage converters and flu pills: just some of the work that has gone into bringing GAMA BOMB to North America this winter. Dollars feel more like money than Euro – they’re thicker and crunch up nicely. We won’t be seeing too many of them over the next few months, but we’re jonesing to get to the US and begin the tour to end all tours.
“If you’re reading this and are in a good mood, please bring us some real moonshine, hooch or bath tub white lightning (test it first for potability – we can’t afford to go blind) or failing that your local beer. We intend to drink America.”

According to Ian Burrell from Independent.co.uk, MOTÖRHEAD mainman Lemmy Kilmister has re-recorded the band’s legendary ‘Ace Of Spades’ at half the tempo as a blues number – and sanctioned it for a commercial.
The new, languid version of ‘Ace Of Spades’ will air this Sunday in the UK. Lemmy will be seen supping a glass of French lager instead of his usual Jack Daniel’s, as part of an advertising campaign for Kronenbourg 1664 titled Slow Down The Pace. The track, on which Lemmy plays harmonica, will be made available for download from the beer brand’s website.
‘Ace Of Spades’ has not been re-recorded before. It features Lemmy’s two Motorhead bandmates, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee, who both appear in the TV ad jamming in a bar close to Lemmy’s home in Los Angeles, but which has been dressed to give the impression of rural France.
Matt Doman, creative director at the advertising agency BBH, admitted Lemmy “was quite challenging but really because he’s very protective of the track. We spent a rollercoaster of a day with him in the recording studio.”
