Voici le communiqué de Chino Moreno à son sujet :

Hello everyone,

It deeply saddens me to inform you all that our brother Chi Cheng was involved in a terrible car accident last night. He is currently in a Northern California Hospital in serious, but stable condition. I am on my way up North right now to be by his side along with the rest of our band mates and family. Chi is one of the strongest people I know, and I'm praying that his strength will get him through this. Please say a prayer for him as well.

SUSPERIA SET FOR CANARIAS MEETING

OSLO, NORWAY- Norwegian thrashers SUSPERIA have issued further details of their previously announced appearance at this years Canarias Hard and Heavy Meeting which takes place at Maspalomas, Gran Canaria in the Canary Isles on 5th and 6th December 2008. The band have been confirmed as headliners on Saturday 6th December 2008. Other acts set to appear at the event include Vicious Art, Infektor and Esclavitud.

Canarias Hard and Heavy Meeting is organised by Helvette Magazine and Scream Magazine, both from Norway. It was originally aimed at Scandinavian metal fans as a get-away from their notoriously dark days of winter. However the opportunity to have a metal filed sunshine winter break has been gaining interest from further afield. As a result the magazine is organising vacations to the event, from various countries between 3rd to 10th December.

SUSPERIA are currently working on the follow up to their 2007 release 'Cut From Stone'. The band have been working continuously throughout the year and pre-production is now nearing completion on approximately ten songs. Commenting on the work to date, SUSPERIA recently stated that "Our writing sessions have had a good vibe going on, with input coming from all of us. We've disciplined ourselves more this time round and we're happy with the way it's going. It's a mix of hard and fast songs with some nice touches of melody " A tentative release is scheduled for early 2009.

SUSPERIA released their fourth studio album, "Cut from Stone", in 2007 through the TABU label in Europe and Candlelight Records in the USA. It entered the Norwegian chart at position No.18 and was the No.1 most added album on the influential CMJ Loud Rock and FMQB radio charts in the U.S.A. ‘Cut From Stone‘ was recorded at Strand Studio, Oslo, Norway during 2006. The mix was completed by Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah, Soilwork) at Dug Out Studios in Uppsala, Sweden, with the production handled by SUSPERIA and Marius Strand.

Strike First Rds is back

It is a pleasure to announce the newly re-formed Strike First Records http://strikefirstrecords.com . Although the look and roster is new, the goal is the same as it was before: to develop the next generation of heavy bands. In 2006, we decided to take a break on Strike First Records and re-focus our time and energy exclusively into the bands on Facedown Records roster. Well, after 2 years of down time, we’ve had plenty of time to think about re-launching Strike First and making it better than ever. That time is now and we are excited to announce the first 3 bands signed to the newly formed label :
HOPE FOR THE DYING, THE GREAT COMMISSION and THROUGH SOLACE

Wild Wild Rock !!

BONESHAKER , groupe originaire de Pau rejoint le label Pervade

Wild Wild Rock !!
C’est presque la maxime de BONESHAKER.
Venant d’horizons musicaux ( Punk, Rock , Heavy-Thrash ) , les BONESHAKER sont juste une bande de potes qui aime le Rock’N’Roll....
Quoi de mieux pour entamer un groupe Rock que de se frotter au maître en la matière , AC/DC ! Après avoir écumé la scène locale en tant que cover band des australiens, BONESHAKER s’est frotté ensuite à la composition perso.

Du pur Rock’N’Roll influencé par AC/DC, NASHVILLE PUSSY, et toute les sortes de "wild rock band" ....

Start the Race est le premier album du groupe. Une décharge d’adrénaline, brute, sauvage. Rock’n’Roll à la fois Heavy et graisseux, rappelant fortement les années 80, quand le Rock couillu était encore malsain et vicieux. BONESHAKER, c’est tout cela à la fois ! Un party band sauvage, refusant de tomber dans les clichés des groupes Metal morderne et revenant à l’essentiel du Rock ! Compos hyper speed et rock, riffs saignants, mélodies fortes et agressives, solo démoniaques, un cocktail qui dynamite tout sur son passage

BONESHAKER a su, avec cet album, s’inspirer des références ultimes mais aussi s’affranchir de tout clonage. A l’heure ou AIRBOURNE cartonne un peu partout, il est bon de savouver des albums comme Start The Race.

RISE OF THE PENTAGRAM

On next November 17th (January 27th in the US), Season of Mist will reissue two classic albums by cult doom band PENTAGRAM: 1999's "Review Your Choices" and 2001's "Sub Basement". Doom is made out of 666 tons heavy riffing, vocals filled with pain, regret and spite as well as leaden song-structures stretched taut to the point of ripping, and PENTAGRAM embody all those virtues like no other contender. Many have named the band the true heir of the British originators of heavy and doom metal, honourably dubbing them 'the American Black Sabbath'.

PENTAGRAM's fourth studio album "Review Your Choices" marked the band's sixth comeback after several changes of line-up and label. These acclaimed protagonists of doom metal proved once more indestructible by drug addiction, break ups, bad deals, jail terms, chronic illness, satanic blood sacrifices and various acts of self destruction. Mainman and singer Bobby Liebling has kept his band alive for nearly 40 years now and might easily be awarded the title of "longest serving cult band" - highly acclaimed by fans, press and fellow musicians alike. "Review Your Choices" marked the return of multi-instrumentalist Joe Hasselvander to join Bobby Liebling in his eternal quest of creating the heaviest sound possible. The album features a mix of re-recorded lost Liebling tracks from the 70's and stellar numbers penned by Hasselvander, which gave "Review Your Choices" an extra heavy feeling.

"Sub-Basement" was the second output of this line-up and is regarded as the most rock n' roll effort of the doomsters ever. On top of PENTAGRAM's perfect doom sound an irresistible groove and capturing catchiness was added, which made the album an all time favourite for many fans. "Sub-Basement" will kick your ass and twist your legs! Dive down deep into gloom and despair with these classic doom recordings, both to be reissued with bonus tracks, new artworks and liner notes.

CYNIC - NEW ALBUM PUSHED BACK TO NOV

The release date for "Traced in Air", the new album from reunited progressive metallers CYNIC originally slated for late October, had to be pushed back to November 17th (November 25th in the US), for manufacturing reasons.

Read guitarist/vocalist Paul Masvidal's comment: "When Season of Mist made us aware of the release date change, it was immediately apparent that this offered us the potential to spread the word even more about this album. Sean and I are extremely proud of the new record and are looking forward to sharing it with CYNIC fans around the world, even if we have to wait just a bit longer. We're thrilled about touring with OPETH next month in Europe, and of course the US tour beginning in January is going to be on fire!"

The first run of "Traced in Air" will be a limited-edition hard cover digipak with the cover artwork embossed to further showcase the beautiful cover by renowned artist Robert Venosa, as well as eight original pieces of art paired with the eight songs found on the album. Venosa created the unmistakable cover and visuals for 1993's groundbreaking "Focus" album. This limited-edition will also feature a poster of the cover art.

GONIN-ISH new album !

GONIN-ISH
Upcoming release: "Naishikyo-Sekai" (CD digipak)
Release date: November 10th, US November 11th
MP3 - GONIN-ISH - Naishikyo-Sekai - Jinbaika
http://www2.ttcn.ne.jp/~gonin-ish

Welcome to the world of GONIN-ISH: you will find the aggression of death metal with acid vocals from female singer Anoji turning into a stream of complex progressive rock melting with the mathematical intricacy of fusion jazz, out of which suddenly lures a sweet siren's voice and the immediate catchiness of pop, before all sound transforms into an art rock epic. Not bound by genre these fearless musical samurai are also not limited by time: the band pulls from its country's past and take this forgotten heritage to the future through their pure, progressive output. Vocalist Anoji chooses ancient words from Japanese classic literature that aren't widely used in the modern world, just as "Gonin-Ish" means "to unite songs by five members". When their self-titled debut came out in 2000 it was a celebrated for its innovation and a lesson of inheritance. After three years "Naishikyo-Sekai" ("your inner world") is unleashed in the West due to a buzz-worthy demand by fans and musicians alike. Welcome to a new chapter in music, a new chapter in Japanese culture and a new contender in the world of progressive metal.
