Swedish/German extreme metal act ARCH ENEMY have commenced the recording sessions for the follow-up to 2003's "Anthems of Rebellion". "We spent the last month in rehearsals and pre-production… It was pretty intense, but hard work pays off — and I believe we have come up with an amazing collection of songs," drummer Daniel Erlandsson writes on the group's web site.
Dutch gothic/atmospheric doom metal group AFTER FOREVER have posted the following recording update on their official web site:
"The recordings of our fourth full length album, 'Remagine', have finally begun!
"Monday, March 7, the recordings of the drums started. The first thing we asked the studio engineers was to give a professional assessment of the recording quality of the drums on the pre-production we had recorded.
"André [Borgman, who last month underwent surgery to remove a tumor] had drummed on this pre-production and we hoped we would be able to use this material. To our great relief the engineers thought this was top-quality material. So, without André being present in the studio, his drums will be on 'Remagine'!!! We thank Ernst van der Ee, André's friend and professional example, who was prepared to drum the album, for being there if necessary.
"After hearing this positive news André was very excited and hopefully that happiness will make him recover faster!
"He started with his second chemical therapy session and so far there are no complications. He is responding well to this treatment so let's hope he will not get sick like last time. He'll be in the hospital until Friday, then he can go home again to recover and get ready for the next chemical treatment. If everything stays normal he'll be home for two weeks.
"André and AFTER FOREVER want to thank everybody who have supported us the last few weeks in these difficult times!!!
"We hope André stays in your hearts and that you keep helping him by sending nice mails, postcards, etc. to get him back behind the drum kit as soon as possible!"
As previously reported, AFTER FOREVER are expected to record the bass and the guitars at the Excess Studio in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) again. The vocals, classical stuff and the mix will be done in the Gate Studio of Sascha Peath and Miro in Wolfsburg, Germany.
AFTER FOREVER's latest album, "Invisible Circles", was released in March 2004 through Transmission Records. "Invisible Circles" is the follow-up to "Decipher", which was issued in 2001
The legendary technical metal band CORONER from Zurich, Switzerland have been asked to take part in a metal festival to take place in Chicago in late 2005. Guitarist Tommy Vetterli (a.k.a. Tommy T. Baron, more recently of KREATOR) was contacted and offered a headlining slot at the festival, which is reportedly being organized by producer Neil Kernon (NEVERMORE, QUEENSRŸCHE, CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE). If CORONER accept the offer, this will be a highly anticipated reunion of one of the most underrated technical metal bands of all time.
Anyone interested in keeping up to date on happenings with a possible CORONER reunion are encouraged to check out the "unofficial CORONER web site" at this location.
If you wish to lend your support to the idea that CORONER should participate in the upcoming festival, feel free to post on their message board and let them know (the bandmembers reportedly watch this board).
