How do you continue to celebrate the life of one of heavy metal’s true legends? You call on those who had the most admiration and respect to gather in one place and do what they do best to pay homage – which includes fellow musicians and fans alike. “The thing I remember the most about Darrell was the way he loved to jump up on stage with anyone at the drop of a hat”, states Rita Haney, longtime girlfriend of Dime and the person who knew him best. “When this tragedy originally happened, I saw the music community unite like I’ve never seen before...

Polish metal act ILLUMINANDI has issued the following announcement about losing their vocalist:

“Unpleasant surprise: Paul ‘Troy’ is no longer the Illuminandi singer. As he told us, this is his final and thoughtful decision. We would like to say that we understand it, but unfortunately we do not. Paul completely surprised us with information about his resignation.

“We’re sorry that so suddenly we lose such a good growler, but we do not give up and will play on. We already have a strong candidate for the deputy to Paul, but I have not decided yet at 100%. If you want to try with us please contact the team or manager.”

COMMUNIC – Issue New Album Update

Norwegian metal band COMMUNIC are currently preparing the final writing details for their follow-up to 2008’s “PAYMENT OF EXISTENCE”. The band is planning to start the recording process early 2011. The band is hoping for a June 2011 release.

Comments Oddleif: “I am really excited about this new material that we have put together for this new album. There is still some work left, but we are getting closer. I think the heaviness of these songs will surprise many of you, and the overall feeling of it, is way darker this time. The songs are shorter, more in your face and may seem straight forward at first, but there are many twists and turns that will just creep under your skin. This album is DEEP!

I know that many of you have been waiting for this album for a long time already, but ever...

Guitarist/vocalist Matt Harvey comments:

“So far we’re really psyched on what’s been oozing out of the speakers! The guitars are sounding really aggressive right out of the box. I can’t wait to get into the vocals and flesh out the songs. We have 18 songs to work through while we’re here and then we’ll sort through and cherry-pick the heaviest, ugliest tracks for the new record, which is gonna be titled “All Guts, No Glory“...
