DEMONICAL Releases Video For ‘The Healing Control’
The Swedish death metal force DEMONICAL have released a video for “The Healing Control”, a track taken from their critically acclaimed fourth full-length album “Darkness Unbound” which was unleashed in Europe on September 20th (through Cyclone Empire) and in North America on November 12th (through Metal Blade Records).
The video – their first from the above mentioned album – is a dark and morbid clip filmed in Italy and the UK and presents the inner essence of DEMONICAL and their sinister form of old-school death metal.
“Darkness Unbound” was mixed & mastered by the bands vocalist Sverker Widgren at Wing Studios in Stockholm.

NACHTMYSTIUM Is Over, Says BLAKE JUDD
Reposted from Blabbermouth.net
Blake Judd of Chicago-based extremists NACHTMYSTIUM — who was arrested early last month on charges of theft by unauthorized control of property not exceeding $500 in value — has put the band to rest.
In a statement on his Facebook page, Judd writes: “Today, I turn 31 years old and as a gift to myself, as sad as it makes me to do this, I’m letting go of something that I’ve put blood, sweat and tears into for the last 13 1/2 years.
“It’s been an amazing ride full of extreme highs and extreme lows. It’s taken me around the world to places I’d never have imagined getting to see / experience. I’ve toured with some of my favorite bands ever and met some of the most amazing people I could ever have asked to meet. These experiences are fond memories that I will be able to reflect on until the day I die and be eternally grateful for having in my mind.
“There are two releases left that are yet to come out: a split 10-inch MLP with THE MANY, which will be released on Plastik Musik in the coming months, and the band’s epitaph LP, ‘The World We Left Behind’, to be released worldwide on CD / LP / digitally by Century Media Records in spring 2014. A vinyl box set of the band’s entire discography is also in the works and will hopefully see the light of day sometime in 2014.
“Thanks to you fans worldwide who’ve supported the band over the last 13 1/2 years. You are the people I owe the most to, as you helped me bring a dream of mine since my earliest memories of being alive to be able to be a musician and a live performer come to life. I feel that between the year 1999 and today in late 2013, I’ve lived more than most people do in a lifetime through my experiences with NACHTMYSTIUM, and every one of you who ever bought a tape, a CD, an LP, a t-shirt, a concert ticket, a poster, a patch, etc., you were the people that truly helped bring this dream of mine to reality. I am eternally grateful to you all for helping make this happen.
“Please enjoy the music NACHTMYSTIUM has left behind for all of you for years to come. The band may be gone, but the recordings will live forever and I hope that they will be played by all of you at some point time and time again.”
NACHTMYSTIUM‘s sixth album, “Silencing Machine”, was released in July 2012 via Century Media Records.
English Edition Of KREATOR’s Official Biography Due In December
Reposted from Blabbermouth.net
Ubooks has set a December 10 release date for the English edition of Hilmar Bender‘s book “Violent Evolution: The Story Of Kreator”.
Originally published in German in March 2011 through UBooks Verlag, the 221-page book is described as follows: “‘Violent Evolution’ tells the story of KREATOR — the titans of Teutonic thrash — from the coal-mining town of Essen, Germany. It is the story of a group of bored teenagers who brought the brutality of everyday life into the rehearsal room. They let their hair grow, formed a band and landed a record deal before they had even reached twenty.
“Drawing on exclusive interviews with the band’s members (both past and present), family, producers, filmmakers and crew, ‘Violent Evolution’ explores the band’s remarkable rise from formative years to spectacular success, headlining the greatest open-air stages on the planet.
“This is their story, from the start to today; from kindergarten (literally) to rulers of the thrash kingdom. An exciting chronicle of one of the most important thrash metal bands in the world.”
KREATOR‘s new concert DVD/Blu-ray, “Dying Alive”, entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 9.
“Dying Alive” was released on August 30 via Nuclear Blast. The set features the band’s sold-out homecoming show in Oberhausen, Germany on December 22, 2012 after an extensive 45-day European tour in support of KREATOR‘s “Phantom Antichrist” album. The packed and sweat-driven show was filmed by 24 cameras, as well as guitar and even mosh-pit cams.
The DVD/Blu-ray contains footage of the Oberhausen concert, a behind-the-scenes documentary as well as video clips. Approximate total running time: 115 minutes.
KREATOR is currently touring North America with fellow thrashers OVERKILL.
