Zorndyke On Mayor Altar’s Edge Review
1 Meine schwarze Fl
Metal Hammer is proud to announce that legendary death metal innovators Cannibal Corpse will headline the first-ever edition of Destroyers Of The Faith, and will be bringing with them some of the biggest names in extreme music.
CC drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz says: “Just being a part of such a killer package and having these bands on there… It’s gonna be an exciting time and a great tour for the UK. I hope all the fans are really pumped for this one, because we definitely are! This is the first time that this is happening in the UK, and it’s very exciting.”
Joining the New York titans of gore on this history-making trek will be none other than bowel-exploding doom metal kings Triptykon, spearheaded by seminal extreme metal icon Tom G. Warrior of Celtic Frost and Hellhammer fame. And, as if that wasn’t enough, both bands will also be joined by veteran Norwegian progressive black metallers Enslaved and rising Arizona death metal favourites, Job For A Cowboy.
JFAC frontman Jonny Davy adds: “It’s the perfect tour! We still feel like we have a lot to prove, and this is the perfect tour to get in everyone’s faces.”

Los Angeles, CA’s ABYSMAL DAWN will begin recording the follow-up album to their Relapse debut Programmed To Consume this May at Trench Studio in Corona, CA with John Haddad (PHOBIA, INTRONAUT, HIRAX). The album will be mixed by Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, VITAL REMAINS, CANNIBAL CORPSE) at his Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL. A fall release date is expected.
ABYSMAL DAWN’s Charles Elliot commented on the upcoming album; “It’s always great to work with John Haddad, whom we’ve worked with on our previous two releases. This time we thought we’d try something a little different though as far as the mix goes. After to speaking to Erik Rutan at great length we know he’s the man for the job. He’s a living legend and knows how real death metal should sound! Everyone in the band is really excited to be working with him and we know this is going to be our most crushing release yet. We’ve been hard at work demoing all the material before we enter the studio and things sound amazing already! This will be our catchiest yet most extreme and technical release to date.
We’re also happy to be working with our new drummer Scott Fuller (ex-HAVOK, ex-SKITZO, ex-ASHES OF ICONS). Scott comes from more of a thrash background but was born to play death metal and has never had the outlet for that until now. So far it’s been a real pleasure to be in a band with someone with the same fire for this music as Mike and I again. A fitting replacement for Terry with even more chops to boot.”
Additional recording details will be made available shortly.
Audio samples and video from the band’s Programmed To Consume album can be viewed online now via the ABYSMAL DAWN MySpace page: Myspace.com/AbymsalDawn.
Israeli melodic extreme metal band WINTERHORDE has posted two brand new songs, “Tenth Wave” and “The Martyr and Deliverance”, on the group’s MySpace page. The tracks come off WINTERHORDE’s sophomore full-length album, “Underwatermoon”, which will be released later this year through an as-yet-undetermined label.
“Underwatermoon”, a conceptual album based on the story written by WINTERHORDE’s bass player and co-founder Celestial, was recorded partly with German producer V. Santura (DARK FORTRESS, TRYPTIKON, OBSCURA) and Morgenrrot, WINTERHORDE’s keyboards player. The CD was mixed and mastered by V. Santura at Woodshed Studio in Germany. The artwork was created by Gustavo Sazes of Abstrata Studio (ARCH ENEMY, OLD MAN’S CHILD, KRISIUN).
Commented Celestial: “‘Underwatermoon’ represents more-than-an-hour epic extreme metal art, blended with prog rock nostalgia and death-cold touch of North Atlantic Ocean. A must have for every open-minded metalhead who needs hunting journey through emotions in his metal.”
“Underwatermoon” track listing:
01. The Shell
02. Wreckages Ghost
04. Hunting the Human
06. And Flames Wept to Heaven
07. The Curse of Gypsy
09. Tenth Wave
10. Smoke Figures
11. The Martyr and Deliverance
The debut WINTERHORDE album, “Nebula”, was released in 2006 via Greece’s Burning Star Records.
For more information, visit www.myspace.com/winterhorde.
The band was formed in 1999, under the name “Autumn Palace” in Western Galilee, Israel. After two years if self-searching and line-up changing, the band renamed itself into WINTERHORDE and recorded one-song demo “In the land of Everfrost”. In 2002 WINTERHORDE release a live recording, which has been totally sold out the same day of its release. Official 4-song demo “In Traditions of Winter” was released in 2004 by SRG productions and got a plenty of excellent feedbacks from all over the world. The demo sold very well and even was reprinted due to the big interest of fans. Opening for such monsters as Dark Funeral and Melechesh led WINTERHORDE to the top of local extreme metal scene.
In 2006, the band signed a deal with Greek Burning Star records. The collaboration resulted in mind blowing debut album “Nebula”, combining melodic black with elements of death and modern progressive metal. The album got very good response from fans and media. Straight after the release, WINTERHORDE supported the album with European “Bringing the Cold” tour alongside with Finnish Catamenia as headliners. The ride included participation in Transylvanian “Maximum Rock” festival, opening for W.A.S.P and Crematory. The tour established a good fan base all around Europe, although some individuals couldn’t believe that Israeli band played that kind of music.
Back to homeland, WINTERHORDE began composing a new material, based on the poem, written by band’s bass player Celestial. In the beginning of 2008, Burning Star records ceased to exist, leaving WINTERHORDE without a record deal. On November 2008, the band enters studio with German producer V.Santura, which worked with such artists as Dark Fortress, Obscura and Tryptikon among others, to record WINTERHORDE’s second album “Underwatermoon”.
“Underwatermoon” represents more-then-one-hour epic extreme metal art, blended with progrock nostalgia and death-cold touch of North-Atlantic Ocean. A must have for every open-minded metalhead who needs hunting journey through emotions in his metal.

California brutalists Gravehill recently took a break from working on their highly anticipated Ibex Moon Records debut to head down south to Texas for a string of shows with label mates, Hod. Safely home from the carnage and mayhem that ensued, vocalist Mike Abominator offered this summary of the mini-tour.
“The Texas shows couldn’t have been better. Hod kicked total ass and made us stay on top of our game! One of the best live bands we have seen and some of the best guys around in metal….PERIOD! It was an honor sharing the stage with them and playing our death metal for all those Texas maniacs! We met so many killer and diehard people in Texas. And I have fond memories of all three shows, but the San Antonio show was unforgettable due to the response of the crowd, the fights, equipment falling and going out, beer and blood flying, the fights, the mayhem, THE FIGHTS, ARGHHHHHH! What a show! Thank you to John/Ibex Moon and Beer Reebs/Hod for setting it all up! TEXAS! WE WILL BE BACK!”
Gravehill will also be among the many Ibex Moon acts contributing a song to the soundtrack to the upcoming indie horror flick, Afterparty Massacre. While said track might not be what Gravehill fans might expect from the band, Abominator guarantees brutality.
“We entered TRENCH STUDIOS for a weekend to do the exclusive track for the Afterparty Massacre movie soundtrack which Ibex Moon is putting out. We recorded the AC/DC song “If You Want Blood (You Got It)” for the release. It was Gravehill-ized so to speak, ha ha, but it came out GREAT. We even brought in our friends Shane from Phobia and Nick from Crepitus to scream and growl along with me on the infamous chorus! In the end, the song title, attitude of AC/DC and Bon Scott and even the overall performance of the song fit Gravehill PERFECTLY! Since we are the AC/DC of death metal! hahahaha”
In regards to the forthcoming album, the front man issued this update from the band’s own Hellheim Studios.
“Now we enter our studio/dungeon HELLHEIM STUDIOS to get the songs set for Pravus Tyrannis our 2nd album, and debut for Ibex Moon. Once we get the songs set, we will then enter TRENCH STUDIOS with Engineer John Haddad (who has worked with Phobia, Hirax, Abysmal Dawn, Final Conflict, Deathevokation) to record the eight songs of devastating and relentless death metal that this album will unleash upon the earth!”
In other news, Gravehill’s Rites Of The Pentagram was recently reviewed on Fangoria.com.

BLOOD MORTIZED, the Swedish death metal band featuring former AMON AMARTH guitarist Anders Hansson (who played on AMON AMARTH’s first two albums, 1996’s “Sorrow Throughout The Nine Worlds” and 1998’s “Once Sent From The Golden Hall”) and CRYPT OF KERBEROS drummer Mattias Borgh, has parted ways with guitarist Benny Moberg “due to personal matters.” The group states, “This has nothing to do with the band, the material or the current members.
“Benny started BLOOD MORTIZED along with [vocalist] Mattias Parkkila back in 2007 and contributed with some heavy riffs on the early demos and debut album.
“BLOOD MORTIZED will replace Benny for the forthcoming brutal release.
“Benny will continue focusing on writing and producing music and is currently working on mixing BIRCH MOUNTAIN’s future debut album release. As of now in the planning phase is to reinstate the old beast machine MALFEITOR as a brutal, demo sounding, blood’n violence explosion!”
BLOOD MORTIZED’s self-titled debut album was released in April 2009 through Singapore’s Vrykoblast Productions.

Despite the fact that METALLICA’s 1991 self-titled fifth album, commonly known as “the black album,” has sold a gazillion copies, the band’s hit song “Enter Sandman” is still considered to be too “hard” for most mainstream listeners.
In order to cement the LP’s status as the best-selling CD of the SoundScan era, the members of METALLICA have opted to produce a new version of “Sandman” that even your mom can “rock out” to. The results of this session can be heard in the YouTube

Swedish metallers SOILWORK have finished recording their new album, “The Panic Broadcast”, and are currently mixing the effort at Fascination Street studio in
Pittsburgh traditional metallers ICARUS WITCH have announced the addition of second guitarist Ed Skero to the group’s ranks.
Commented the band: “Many people have mentioned over the last few years that they miss hearing ICARUS WITCH as a two-guitar lineup with the harmonies, rhythms and dual leads intact. Our position was that we also enjoy hearing those elements but did not want to inject a new, unknown member into an equation that was already running so smoothly on stage.
“While on the Paul Di’Anno tour [as the support act and Paul's backing band], we were fortunate enough to have that second guitar slot for Paul’s set filled by a phenomenal talent in Pittsburgh-area guitarist Ed Skero(a.k.a. Full Metal Duffy).
“Performing that challenging set every night with Ed on stage proved a couple of things:
a) We sound better with the additional guitar
b) We got along so well with Ed on a personal level that the chemistry was right to make the move.
“So join us in welcoming Mr. Ed to the inner circle. Once you hear what he will bring to the band in terms of classic style, vintage tone, tasty writing and Reiki healing prowess, it will be obvious that the WITCH is about to take it up a notch on record and on stage every night.”
ICARUS WITCH’s third full-length album, “Draw Down The Moon”, was released on February 9 through Cleopatra Records.
ICARUS WITCH was previously described as having a “heavy influence of IRON MAIDEN combined with good old-fashioned hard rock/metal production and great musicianship” by Don Jamieson, co-host of VH1 Classic’s “That Metal Show”. Perhaps this assessment helped land the boys the opening slot on former MAIDEN crooner Paul Di’Anno’s first American tour in over 15 years, which took place this past January/February.

Denmark-based hard rock/progressive metal band ROYAL HUNT has signed a deal with Scarlet Records for the European release of its new album, “X”.
ROYAL HUNT decided to revisit its roots and incorporate some of the musical values of the ’70s into its songwriting as well as — in order to reinforce that particular atmosphere — employing mostly “retro” means of production (recording in analog format exclusively being one of them) for its tenth studio album. The music has been described as “an interesting mix of what’s been tagged as classic rock nowadays (established by KANSAS, GENESIS, ELP’s earlier works and DEEP PURPLE, URIAH HEEP’s classics from the same era) and ROYAL HUNT’s trademark composition/delivery.”

SKYFORGER have been tempering their music in the smithy of the Thundergod since 1995. For the last decade, the band has been fighting under the flag of Latvian Pagan metal; an extreme blend of traditional Baltic folk music and various metal influences ranging from Norwegian-inspired black metal through to ’80s-rooted heavy metal. The band’s unique combination of ancient and modern influence has given them a wide appeal throughout both the metal and folk scenes, and has brought great variety to their songwriting over the course of the five SKYFORGER albums.
Through the years SKYFORGER has been busy on stages all over Europe. Behind the belt of SKYFORGER are already four European tours, many mini-tours and festival appearances and SKYFORGER is well known for their non-compromising live performances.
