Metal / Selling my vinyl collection

Hey all.  I haven't been around here in awhile and it seems you've done some reorganizing again - no more classifieds section.  I hope this is still allowed, as I think there are several of you that may have an interest in a couple of these.

Have a look:


Thanks.  Pass it on.


Metal / Harkonin signs with Battlegod Productions
« on: August 10, 2007, 01:07:06 AM »
Harkonin are pleased to announce that they have agreed to a multi-album deal with Australia's Battlegod Productions. "We are proud to share a label with such bands as Dark Order, Saxorior, Buio Omega, and of course Baltak", says drummer Clayton Gore. "We couldn't be more excited. After numerous discussions, it's clear that we share the same outlook and goals for the band. The support Battlegod has already shown us is tremendous and we look forward to an excellent relationship." The band's self-released 2006 recording "Ghanima" will be released by Battlegod soon and a new follow-up album by early 2009.

The band still has a very limited number of their initial pressing of "Ghanima" that they will continue to sell through their website until the Battlegod version goes to presses. If you are interested in this very limited run CD, please visit http://www.harkonin.com for ordering and pricing information.

Metal / Eulogy - new album '08
« on: August 10, 2007, 01:05:34 AM »
After a long hiatus, founding memeber Jarrett Pritchard has invoked the core trio of Tampa's now legendary death metal outfit EULOGY. Rejoined by Jason Avery, who spent many years fronting MONSTROSITY and drummer Clayton Gore of St. Louis' HARKONIN, the band is set to record a new album beginning on September 6 in Orlando with Jarrett at the controls.

Commented Jarrett: "At this point I have completed eight songs for the record and it promises not to dissapoint. On bass we have enlisted Mike Pogionne of MONSTROSITY/LECHURUS NOCTURNE and at this time second guitar duties will be filled by none other than longtime friend Rob Barrett (CANNIBAL CORPSE, HATE PLOW, MALEVOLENT CREATION, SOLSTICE). At this point we have not approached any labels about the release and we intend to have the cap on it December 15, 2007 for an early 2008 release."

A promo video featuring fragments of new riffs in demo form can be found at this location.

DARKTHRONE - New 7" Single Limited To 2,000 Copies; Available Exclusively Online

Posted on Wednesday, October 04, 2006 at 10:04:38

Snapper Music (www.snappermusic.com) has issued the following details for the new DARKTHRONE single., 'Forebyggende Krig':

Numbered Ltd/Edition 7" vinyl, Ltd. to 2,000 copies - Online Exclusive! Not available anywhere else.

Coming up to 20 years of existence and with 12 albums behind them, one of the early originators and still leaders of the Norwegian black metal scene Darkthrone release a limited 7” vinyl single in the shape of ‘Forebyggende Krig’ and show that it is still done their way or no way.

The single features the title track on side A, which is lifted from their latest masterpiece, The Cult Is Alive with its CELTIC FROST-ish blend of ingenious structure and riffs.

Uncompromising and unpredictable as Darkthrone always are, on side B there is a completely exclusive track (and perhaps an unexpected one) in the shape of the cover-song 'Bad Attitude', which was originally by little-known American punk rockers TESTORS, and was recorded in the late-70’s.

The vocals on ‘Bad Attitude’ are handled by Fenriz, with backing vocals carried out by Nocturno Culto.

The ‘Forebyggende Krig’ 7” is an online exclusive. It is a numbered Limited Edition 7" vinyl and there are only 2,000 copies, making this an essential collector’s item.

This product is available to pre-order and will be shipped from November 23rd, 2006

Please note that your payment will be processed upon receipt of order.

Any other items ordered at the same time will not be despatched until November 23rd, 2006.


oh yeah - this will be good.....

It's Official - CYNIC Reunite!
Posted on Wednesday, September 27, 2006 at 17:10:45

BW&BK has received the following press release:

Long-defunct Florida-based band CYNIC, whose 1993 album Focus is regarded as a landmark release in the field of technical/progressive metal, have announced plans to embark a reunion tour in the spring/summer of 2007, beginning with possible U.S. warm-up performances and culminating in a number of festival appearances across Europe.

The reunion lineup is as follows: Paul Masvidal - vocals/guitar, Sean Reinert - drums/keys, Tony Teegarden - vocals/ keyboards, Chris Kringel - bass, Santiago Dobles – guitar

Kringel, who replaces Sean Malone (who can't participate in the reunion because of teaching and work commitments) in Cynic's reunion lineup, has been involved with the band since the pre-Focus days and toured with the band in Europe in support of the CD. He also played bass on the classic and much-sought-after PORTAL demos and toured the UK with Paul and Sean's AEON SPOKE project. Teegarden also previously toured with Cynic in support of Focus, while Santiago — who is said to be "the man behind AGHORA" — has been around the Cynic camp since 1993-94 and was one of Masvidal's guitar students in Miami back in the day.

According to Masvidal, guitarist Jason Gobel was approached about participating in the reunion, but was forced to turn it down due to family and work commitments. However, he gave the rest of the group his blessings to proceed and is said to be "honored" to have Santiago as his replacement.

Metal / another one dies
« on: September 02, 2006, 02:33:45 AM »
I'm very saddened to inform you guys that
Rich (Grand Belial's Key/Vinland Winds) has apparently died,

Not too many details are known right now, but J
talked to P tonight, and all that seems to be
known is that his body was found in Manhattan
somewhere this past sunday, and it hasn't been
released to the family yet, so I guess the cause of
death isn't known yet.
the funeral will be in Delaware where his family lives
but no idea when right now...

This is the message from his family:

"We are very sad to tell you that deeply loved Richard Mills has passed away. We are crushed. And, we know all of his friends will be too. Losing Richard will leave a hole in our lives.

We are trying to contact anyone who was with him on Saterday night, the night he died. I said sunday but it was saterday night.

If you have any information .. friends, band members, phone numbers or emails, that would be very helpful. "

Metal / Cannibal Corpse banned in Australia
« on: July 18, 2006, 01:20:26 AM »
i'm sure you've all read about this shit.  seems like every other year AUS bans some metal band and some politicians get their 15 minutes leeching off metal.  anyway, "...Australian comedy team The Chaser recently paid tribute to the death metal act by performing their own version of CC's "Rancid Amputation" on national TV."

as one blabberdouche put it:  "Is the guy in the video clip has hit the nail on the head. The censorship is NOT about the lyrics, it IS about the music. If it really was about the lyrics, then how the hell would this guy get away with reciting them on Australian national television? The answer of course is, he wouldn't. "

anyway, the clip is fucking hilarious - check it out:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fc-V3NYckOI
