Virus new album !

Upcoming release: "The Black Flux" (CD digipak)
Release date: November 10th, US November 11th
MP3 - VIRUS - The Black Flux - Shame Eclipse

Broken rhythms, shattered melodies and twisted turns are all flowing together into a stream of consciousness now to be revealed to the world as "The Black Flux". The album's nine songs drift along with deceiving beauty and grace, before clawing at the listener and forcing him to follow them into the depths of a dark abyss filled with icy guitar riffs. When mastermind Carl-Michael "Czral" Eide literally hit rock bottom with both of his legs shattered in a tragic accident in 2005, it looked like the end of his prolific musical career. Now the multi-instrumentalist returns, creating a strong interest as "The Black Flux" is more than just a second album by avant-garde rock and death spearhead VIRUS after "Carheart" (2003), but also the long hoped for continuation of VED BUENS ENDE's legendary "Written in Waters" album (1995). Taking avant-garde metal to a new dimension, the album is still being regarded as a cult-classic. Now VIRUS return to explore the dark in new and unheard ways, but true to the spirit and sound of "Written in Waters" and "Carheart". Get infected!

New York's PIVOTAL ROCKORDINGS (Relocated from Florida) is proud to announce the re-release of "Eden Fire", the debut album from Swedish metallers SONIC SYNDICATE through Koch Distribution in the US and Canada on December 9th 2008. For a side of SONIC SYNDICATE that many have not yet experienced – a band unshaped and untouched by the mainstream music industry – "Eden Fire" is not only a dark, heavy, and rich album filled with cult classics and fan favorites, but also a piece of history that documents the beginnings of a young underground band on the edge of its explosion to fame.

PIVOTAL ROCKORDINGS owner Leevan Macomeau comments:

"This album started it all for the band as well as for our record label, so when given the opportunity to give "Eden Fire" the proper North American distribution that it never received, we were more than ecstatic. We are
looking forward to cooperating with France’s LISTENABLE RECORDS and North America’s KOCH DISTRIBUTION in order to bring our catalogue to the masses!"

"Eden Fire" was originally released on September 13th, 2005 and SONIC SYNDICATE has since released 2007’s "Only Inhuman" and 2008’s "Love And Other Disasters" via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.

The goal was achieved and the band took some time off from studio playing summer festivals like TUSKA Open Air and made their debut at the mighty WACKEN Open Air.

5th BTD album "SOUNDSCAPE OF SILENCE" will underline words: commitment, dedication, talent and hard work. 2008-2009 will show a hungry and motivated live band with a session drummer to complete the line-up on stage as their before announced Drummer Dani already left the band...
