Enslaved Detail New Album “In Times”

Enslaved‘s new album “In Times” has been officially announced and will arrive in stores on March 10th. Band guitarist Ivar Bjørnson offered of the album:

“I was so deep into the songs and ideas for such a long time (or have my head so far up my own ass, if you prefer more direct language) that it is hard to have any ‘opinions’ about them that is anything else than the high-flying mumbo-jumbo of the introvert song-smith. The songs are extensions of my inner and outer life, the thoughts I am aware of having, as well as those that lie too deep to register in everyday consciousness.

The songs are the resounds of grandiose altered states and mundane tiny micro-events. In addition, they are, of course, also the result of inspiration from other music and art. I do think this new album is the most consistent body of work we have so far: It incorporates our ‘blacker’ past with our influences from prog rock, our present sense of absolute freedom, and the joy of being in this band, if that makes any sense… Ha, ha, ha. It is higher in energy, more aggressive, yet more beautiful and subtle. It simply sounds inspired.”

Read on for both the track listing for the outing and the cover art, which was done by Truls Espedal:

01 – “Thurisaz Dreaming
02 – “Building With Fire
03 – “One Thousand Years Of Rain
04 – “Nauthir Bleeding
05 – “In Times
06 – “Daylight

King Conquer and their ex-guitarist John Byrd had a rather acrimonious split over a year ago and apparently the resentment between the two parties didn’t end there. The band have posted the following update via their Facebook, alleging that Byrd altered the groups lineup on their Facebook to include only him and then went on to rip-off countless fans for merch, before ultimately deleting the Facebook page altogether.

“Hey everyone,

We wanted to make something very clear in regards to John Byrd.

John Byrd is not, and will NEVER ever be back in King Conquer. He took all of the members of the band off this Facebook page and sold merch to countless amounts of people and just took their money for himself and never sent the merch out to them. Then after people complained about it he deleted the page. We finally got the page back not too long ago and got him off of it. We are beyond sorry for what he did but it was completely out of our hands since we had no idea he was doing this.

To everyone who got ripped off by John Byrd, we will be coming up with something to give back to you. We feel terrible about what he did and we want to make things right with everyone who did not get what they paid for. Once we have this figured out, we will post about it for you to email us and get it all straightened out.

We are happy to say that the page is back and that we are working on a new EP and a possible tour in the late summer of 2015. We do still have merchandise for sale on http://bit.ly/KCcoldcuts AND http://bit.ly/KCmerchconn if you’d like to buy any.

King Conquer is James Patrick Mislow (vocals), Chris Whited (drums/vocals), Adam Michael McNee Whited (Bass), and Derick Caperton (guitar).”

Gideon Announce Their Bassist’s Departure

Gideon have announced the departure of bassist Timothy Naugher from their lineup:

“Hey guys,

Our original bassist, Timothy Naugher has left the band.

He got an awesome job, and wants to live a “normal dude” life, it is as simple as that. He is still one of our best friends, it could not have been any cleaner of a break.

Touring in a band is not easy work. We are always away from our homes, with almost no consistency in our life, but because of you guys its all worth it!

We have a fill in lined up for our next tour and will not be taking bassist auditions at this time. Thank you guys for your support!”
