BattleroaR hat geschrieben:All good things come to an end, so, unfortunately we would like to announce the departure of our singer and brother Gerrit Mutz from the band, after almost 8 glorious years!
Along with our sincere gratitude for everything we shared while being in the same band, we would like to express our best wishes on whatever he will do from now on and make clear that he remains our brother forever and beyond!
A farewell message in his own words, follows:
"It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce my departure from Battleroar today.

It was never easy to keep this going, being in a band abroad, but my brotherhood with Kostas and the love for the music kept me continue for way longer than feasible.
Now more and more health issues, work and schedule conflicts force me to cut a lot of activities and beloved things.

It was a pleasure playing and recording with Battleroar. And I want to thank Kostas, Michael, Sverd, Greg and George for the great time, the fantastic records and the wonderful gigs!

I wish you all my metal best for the future of the band! Keep the epic metal raging, brothers!"

Northern Silence Productions hat geschrieben:BIG CHANGES ON THE HORIZON!

The biggest change since the founding of Northern Silence in 2003 is taking shape behind the scenes. It is quite noteworthy, especially for myself, so I wanted to elaborate a bit on it beforehand and don't turn it into a surprise.

If all goes as planned, the Northern Silence mailorder will be handled by another company - 8merch from Poland - as of June 1st.

The reasons for it are manifold but let's just say that running Northern Silence as a one-man operation the way it was done since its inception has become absolutely impossible.

I've always been of the opinion that it is best to do something yourself if you want it done properly. However, during the last few months I was given the chance to realize that at a certain point you can't do everything yourself anymore when you're not able to work 24/7, which I'm not. That's also why Northern Silence has never grown beyond medium size, by underground standards.

Apart from the erroneous notion that it's always best to do everything yourself, which of course is total nonsense, I'm far from the best at everything I do. Many people have specialized knowledge as well as the appropriate software and are able to do things better, faster and more efficiently than I ever could.

So the Northern Silence webstore that you're familiar with will close its virtual doors on May 31st, and on June 1st a new webstore will open that is run BY 8merch FOR Northern Silence.

Since it is not possible to transfer the entire stock in such a short time (neither physical nor virtual) the new shop will at first only offer the more significant NSP releases and then step by step we'll add the most noteworthy of the other mailorder items. What happens with the rest will be determined later. Maybe it will be sold in packages for disproportionately low prices.

In terms of content, very little will change for most customers, since Northern Silence releases make up about 70% of the turnover anyway, and once all significant third-party releases have been added we'll be back to around 90% of what most people currently consider order-worthy from the NSP shop, but without all the dead stock congesting the lists.

Shipping rates will be adjusted and may in fact be a bit lower than they're now (except for German customers - that can't be helped). Shipping may happen faster too, since 8merch usually ship orders the same day or the next.

Other than that, the entire shopping experience will be brought from the stone age into the 21st century, where shipping costs are calculated automatically and you pay right away, without having to wait for an email with shipping costs and payment details.

So all things considered, everything should become easier and much more enjoyable for all concerned, certainly for me because I'll have a private life again 😅

Last but not least, I'll be able to have a reasonable number of new releases out each year without fearing that if they become too successful I won't be able to handle the workload anymore. Sounds crazy but that's how it is if you run a label with a do-it-yourself mentality. Let's just say I would not have been able to handle the initial workload for a new Caladan Brood album on my own, but now the situation changes so who knows what the future will bring.

In conclusion I would like to encourage you to order from the old NSP shop throughout May if you're in love with any of the more obscure titles in the lists because these will certainly not find their way into the new store. Besides Northern Silence titles the primary focus will be on the releases of the main partners - Nordvis, Avantgarde, Osmose, Wolfspell, Sepulchral, Northern Heritage and maybe a handful others.

Napalm Records hat geschrieben:
Einherjer – Sign worldwide deal with Napalm Records!

Welcome back to the family, EINHERJER! Napalm Records is proud to announce that the Norwegian Viking Metal legends return after 23 years and the release of Dragons Of The North in 1996!

Napalm Records A&R Sebastian Muench comments:
"In 1996 Napalm Records released what today can clearly be described as one of the best Viking / Pagan Metal albums ever written, Dragons of the North. 23 years later it is a pleasure to announce the re-signing of EINHERJER. Welcome back to the Napalm Records family and together we can create yet another masterpiece!“

Frode “Grimar“ Glesnes on the signing:
"We're thrilled to announce that we have signed a worldwide deal with Napalm Records. We're currently writing the follow-up to 2018's Norrøne Spor and I can't wait to see what a powerful entity such as Napalm Records can make out of our Norse Heavy Metal."

EINHERJER was formed by Frode Glesnes and Gerhard Storesund in 1993 and became one of the leading Viking/Pagan metal bands by releasing genre classics as Dragons Of The North, Blot and Norrøne Spor.
After 23 years the reunion has finally come and EINHERJER re-signs to Napalm Records with both founding members, Frode “Grimar“ Glesnes and Gerhard “Ulvar“ Storesund. Aksel Herløe and lead guitarist Ole Sønstabø complete the band.

Cederick Forsberg hat geschrieben:It's time to let Blazon Stone die.
For the last few years I've tried to find suitable band members that are both talented and passionate. I cannot find a singer. I cannot find a drummer. I have tried everything can no longer come up with any new ideas how to keep the ship above surface.

I also don't any longer enjoy the whole concept of Blazon Stone:
The whole idea from the start was just to record a "RW style" album for fun. As the song writing quality stepped up a lot with "War Of The Roses" and "Down In The Dark" (compared to the first 2) I felt like this can actually become something and I got ambitious... And then entered the nightmares of trying to actually have a fuctioning line-up. But the concept is the thing I like the least: There's nothing original about this project I can be proud of. It's just blatant copy of an existing band. There's individual songs I've written that I'm proud of, but that's not enough.

Of course I'm thankful for various temporary live stand-ins like vocalist Philip Forsell, both drummers Daniel Sjögren and Kalle Löfgren, as well as bass players Jimmy Mattsson and Kevin Crona, and let's not forget 2nd guitarist Emil!

But I can't go on like this anymore.

There's obviously no interest among any great musicans to join Blazon Stone for a real line-up. And I cannot afford to hire professinal musicians for live use either, because there's really not a lot of money involved when a band is at this size. Bands like Sabaton or Hammerfall may be able to hire anybody they want to because they have big labels backing if needed. I don't have anything to save this sinking ship anymore.

Of course I'm thankful for all fans who has bought the albums, but I still cannot simply summon any talented musicians out of nowhere.

Now it's over.
I have given up on Blazon Stone.
There's nothing more I can do.
I have tried as much as I can.

Thanks for all /// C.

Dexter Ward hat geschrieben:We've been silent for a long time now but we work hard to prepare the new album while you are at the beaches vacationing:) At the moment we have 10 songs in preproduction which we love all and we strongly believe this will be our best album up to date. Ok i know every band is saying this but in our occasion this is the truth. in addition to that we booked two festivals 2020 near the release of our new album. Stay tuned and enjoy your summer.

NECROPHOBIC hat geschrieben:NECROPHOBIC PART WAYS WITH ALEXANDER FRIBERG

Necrophobic have decided to part ways with Alexander Friberg due to several reasons. We thank him for great times together and wish him the best in the future with his other obligations in Naglfar and his main band Firespawn.

/Joakim, Sebastian, Johan & Anders
Alexander Friberg hat geschrieben:Nothing lasts forever!
It is with sorrow in my heart I make this announcement. I have been a part of Necrophobic for 11 years now but my so called “brothers” decided to fire me and replace me with the guy who is session for me during my time-out. I have no words for this really. Very nice of you guys... Now that is how you treat a band member since 11 years. Replace me with a guy who did 5 shows with you, ok... On the positive note is that I will have more time to focus on @firespawn_official and @naglfarofficial and to be home with my family, so I win! Life goes on #necrophobic
