Decapitated Set Title To New Album

Decapitated have selected “Carnival Is Forever” to serve as the title to their new album which will see a release later this year through Nuclear Blast. Band guitarist Waclaw ‘Vogg’ Kieltyka offered the following on the title choice:

“Carnival: war, rape, lies, pathology, evil displayed through certain events and situations of the latest years in the world. Is Forever – I guess it doesn’t need explaining. Both in the text and the title, there is bitter irony. The author of the title and all lyrics is Jarek Szubrycht (Lex Occulta, author of No Mercy, the world’s first biography of thrash metal legends SLAYER.”

Still Remains Officially Reunite, New Material In The Works

Still Remains have announced their reunion via their Facebook with the following statement:

“…Maybe we shouldn’t have called it a break-up. Maybe we needed a few years to purge the strain of having six or seven full-time roommates living in a van, and get back to having fun. When Haste The Day asked us to come back for one show none of us immediately said yes. Obviously, we eventually did. Getting together and playing those songs again in a tiny little corner-room in Mike’s basement had a bigger effect than we expected. We want more…

We are not aspiring to get back to the same type of touring schedule that we had to walk away from. We all have other priorities and many of us are invested in other musical projects, but we know Still Remains has chemistry and musicianship that is not easy to come by.

New tunes are in the works and we’ve booked a hometown show in Grand Rapids. We are looking forward to rocking together again. We’ll keep you updated through http://www.facebook.com/stillremains and tickets will be available shortly at http://pyramidschemebar.com/.

We appreciate your support and are blown away that it hasn’t stopped.

Behemoth Frontman Joins Fields Of The Nephilim On Stage, Footage Available

Behemoth frontman Nergal made a return to the live stage in Katowice, Poland yesterday for a guest appearance during Fields Of The Nephilim‘s performance of their track “Penetration“. The appearance marks Nergal‘s first time on stage since undergoing a successful bone marrow transplant and he had the following to offer on the experience:

“I just came off stage…Katowice, Poland. It was my first performance after the transplant. I don’t remember when the last time I was THAT nervous. First of all, I had to join one of my favorite bands ever, true legends, Fields Of The Nephilim…secondly, I’m still not 100% in shape so I didn’t know how my body would react. I would risk saying I’m maybe 60% of what I used to be…but still progressing!

Anyway, We did a song “Penetration” together with Carl McCoy and Co. What a blast I have to tell you. I had a serious adrenaline rush and it was such a boost of energy I can’t even describe. My mouth dried out after 30 seconds so I could hardly breathe but the energy wouldn’t let me stop. I was carried away. The moment I saw the crowd, I felt this double bass pounding underneath my feet…I was in trance. I’m counting days ’til we come back with Behemoth full time. 5 months to go…huh.”
