SHORT SHARP SHOCK (SSS) GIVE RECORDING UPDATE
British crossover thrashers SHORT SHARP SHOCK (SSS) are currently in the
studio recording their second full-length album.
SSS bassist Mark Magill gives an update on the recording process: "We just
finished 3 days tracking drums for the new SSS album and it sounds bezerk.
Dave pulled out all the stops and we got 30 tracks laid down. It's so much
faster, heavier and harder than the first record and we can't wait to get it
done and in your mits."

NUCLEAR WAR NOW PRODUCTIONS (www.nwnprod.com) just released the new Morbosidad “Profana la Cruz del Nazareno” CD (ANTI-GOTH 101)
NWN wrote: Despues de casi 5 anos de silencio total, las legiones bestiales han resurgido. On December 25, 2007, the notorious Tomas Stench assembled his horde of maniacal priests of darkness to desecrate the day the bastard Nazarene son was born unto the whore of Bethlehem. Recorded in Mexico with a new line-up, the third Morbosidad album is heavily influenced by Brazilian deathrash masters such as the mighty Sarcofago, Sextrash, and Holocausto, yet is still undeniably Morboso Metal. One of the most sacrilegious and blasphemous records in the NWN! catalog, “Profana La Cruz del Nazareno” achieves a primitive savagery and violence never heard before on any Morbosidad recording. And finally, the only artist whose dark visions are sufficiently unholy to adorn such a long-awaited release, the notorious Chris Moyen was summoned by the Morboso Kult to produce another masterpiece of goatworship for the cover of the CD and gatefold LP. Vinyl version is currently in production at the pressing plant.
NWN stuff at the pressing plant now:
Witchfinder General “Buried Amongst the Ruins” LP+7″
Sacriphyx “Lone Pine” 7″ (2007 demo pressed on vinyl)

Century Media in co-operation with Prowling Death Records will release the first official HELLHAMMER demo collection, entitled "Demon Entrails" in February 2008. Here's the official press statement: "There exist countless Hellhammer demo bootlegs, but they all utterly fail to capture the true aura, to represent the band as it actually was. They have been compiled from dismal multi-generation copies of the original tapes, and they are invariably riddled with factual and historical errors or outright lies. Former Hellhammer members Tom Gabriel Fischer, Martin Eric Ain and Steve Warrior have decided to rectify this situation once and for all. "Demon Entrails" is the first official release of the legendary Hellhammer demos "Death Fiend" / "Triumph of Death" and "Satanic Rites" since the original limited cassette editions in 1983. This release has been specially re-mastered from copies of the original master tapes under the supervision of Tom Gabriel Fischer and the demos now represent Hellhammer exactly as the band sounded when recording these songs in June and December of 1983. Drawing from a wealth of previously unknown historical material and artwork as well as hundreds of unreleased Hellhammer photos from 1982 to 1984, "Demon Entrails" will also feature all lyrics and essays detailing the individual demo recording sessions. "Demon Entrails" will be released as an opulent oversized double CD and as a gatefold triple vinyl album. Both versions will feature a lavish booklet and a poster. There will also be a third, bare-bones low-price CD version, designed to cater to markets which will not carry the standard CD due to its irregular size."
NECROMANIAC is finally back online! Watch out for NEWS, Tourdates and so on...
