So, this is the second week in studio and the recordings have gone smooth this far. Right now I closed my rhytmn guitar sessions and Pekka is starting. We spent time to find the guitar sound for rhytmn section and I´m glad we did it because what I hear now is brutal and "ear-taking".

Bitter Metallic Side
The Groan of Wind

To the Gallows
Time Takes Us All
Man of the King


Tomorrow we have a gig at Räntämetalli and we are going to play Bitter Metallic Side from the new album. So, You`ll get the taste of what is coming... See You there!

And the name of the album will be "The Black Waltz"."

Defleshed: Call It Quits

The band Defleshed has left the following message on their official website:

"Fellow comrades,

with a schizophrenic mixture of grief and relief we hereby announce our departure from all Defleshed-activities. Activities that has become more of obligations with the years, which has driven us individually to become more ambitions or less. We are in no way splitting up as unfriends, if anything reversed, and we'll thank you all for your the support through the years in the only way we know how to: a farewell to the flesh gig at Fellini, Uppsala, Sweden the 25th of December (see This night we'll do anything in our power to BLAST YOUR FUCKING FLESH OFF !!!

However, since we've never been to the States (which is an old dream of ours), we'll still try to nail that Dismember tour in April, but this is up to our US label & co.

Hope you understand our wish not to become tired, blood-drain has-beens but to end this while we're still potent.

We will still go on with metal in diverse bands and future projects of course, of which I'm sure you will hear of in a near future, but as for Defleshed we've simply feel the last chapter has been written. After all, you don't stop playing 'cause your getting old - you get old 'cause you stop playing. Be well and thanks for your attention in our band."

Dissection Bassist Leaves The Band

Dissection have posted the following message on their official website:

"As a result of bassist Haakon Forwald's family situation back home in Norway and his initiatory work with the Norwegian cell division of the Misanthropic Luciferian Order (MLO) it has been decided that Forwald will step back from the position as Dissection's bass player in order to focus on his esoteric and exoteric work in Norway. Dissection wish Forwald the best of luck on the path to anti-cosmic gnosis and thank him for his time with the band.

This will not affect the two upcoming shows in Sweden and Germany booked for December and January where Dissection for the last time ever will perform a set based solely on the old albums!

Bass player candidates already exist and are currently being tried out in rehearsals!"

The Black Dahlia Murder: Search For New Drummer

The following was posted on the official website of The Black Dahlia Murder:

"As many of you may already know we are currently in search of a drummer. For all of those interested in trying out it is important to follow the next steps exactly. Make a recording of yourself playing "FLIES" along to a metronome. We are not at all interested in hearing personal interpretations, we simply want to hear whether or not you can play hit for hit what is heard on our CD. WE DONT CARE IF YOU CAN PLAY SONGS OFF OF UNHALLOWED, we are only interested in talking to people who can follow the directions given. Once you've made this recording you can contact us either through our myspace or by emailing"

Strapping Young Lad Check In From Virginia

Strapping Young Lad drummer Gene Holgan has posted the following message on their official website:

"So, last night, we're at the Norva, in Norfolk, Va. It's one of the nicer clubs in North America, with real friendly people, a HUGE greenroom with loads of cool amenities, and a JACUZZI in the headliners' dressing room. Wow! Now that jacuzzi, while cool in theory, is something you'd never see ol' Gene jumpin' into. Bathing in countless other bands' 'egg-drop soup'. Wicked. Sign me up. Maybe set that thing on fire 2 or 3 times, then I might consider it...

But, the day was great, the show was killer, and everybody was rockin'. Sat in for Raymond again for soundcheck, played "Replica" a little better this time. And a piece of "540 BillionTrillion Degrees". I was ready to slaughter some "Self-Bias...", but I guess that was enough. Later on, after SYL played, I got to watch the Cowboys' rollicking come-from-behind win over the Eagles. Fuck the Eagles. And the Giants and 'Skins as well. It's about time WE had a come-from-behind win this season. Seeing how it's happened to us twice now. And NOBODY foresaw T.O., the "Franchise Destroyer", showing his true colors this season, yeah, right. I LOOOVED it when the Eagles picked him up last season, cuz it was a no-brainer that he was gonna bring that strong team dowwwwn...

I've been gettin' to know all the Soilwork dudes the past couple shows, very cool dudes indeed! I'm diggin' them and their crew. Watchin' Dierk, their drummer, doin' his pre-show rudiments is pretty damn cool, and shows me how woefully behind as a drummer I am. That's one thing I like about the new breed of thrash metal musicians. In today's world, you gotta have your chops together. Back when I was starting oot, there were literally a handful of drummers who could string two sentences together, let alone play thrash in any sort of cohesive style. It was mostly a guitar-driven genre. Nowaday's with all the BADASSES out there, if you're not one of 'em, you're sunk. Drums have taken over as the 'featured instrumentalist' in thrash. I've toured with and seen so many amazing drummers this year, it is truly inspiring.

Tonight brings us to the Masquerade in Atlanta. This crazy goth club in the 'hood, owned up 'til recently by the IMPOTENT SEA SNAKES. It's a pretty decrepit building, but with tons of character. It's always a venue ya look forward to playing. STRAPPING has had some very memorable shows here, and I'm sure tonight will be one of 'em.

Well, I know I said the other day that I was done writing these blogs for awhile, that was before I remembered that the whole reason I'm writing these is to combat boredom. And fuck, it can get boring on the road. Especially since I gave up having fun. But, as I type, Byron's super-duper, tricked-out, ultra-chipped XBox is getting tons of new stuff dumped onto it over on the other bus. YAY! "Burnout: Revenge" bus parties here we come! Fuck, we're dorks.

Oh yeah, a couple of guys have asked me aboot the cheesesteak-eating contest. Well, it didn't happen. Thankfully! But we had sort of a pre-dawn cheesesteak contest of our own. Damn, "Pat's" was PACKED at 4am, when I ran over there. The line at "Gino's" was a little shorter, but, I had "Gino's" last time I was in Philly, so "Pat's" it was. Well-worth it, too. "Pat's" is way better. But , that's like saying "Alpo is better than Mighty Dog". When it comes to cheesesteaks, yuh just cain't polish a turd.

Cool! Bobby Koeble from Death just called me! Gonna see him tomorrow, righteous.

Wow, our tourbus smells really bad. Like butt, feet and salami. Had all that on a pizza once, didn't care for it.

Alright people, have fun! Jedly's blog is on the way..."

Cradle Of Filth Studio Update

The following message was posted by Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth on their official website:

"Dear all,

Excuse the following exercise in bad grammar, doctrinal expletives and general< buffoonery but i am writing this report from 'The Chapel' studios here in deepest, darkest rural Lincolnshire following a night out at the local pub (the only means of entertainment in the entire region) and a fall into a deep ditch full of water, having partially succeeded in rescuing a drowning football. Suffice to say i awoke this morning having half-laughed myself to death watching the two pseudo-documentaries on our soon-to-released new DVD to find my shoes caked in mud and my pants on the wrong way around (but that's entirely another story).

So far so good in respect to the new album, the producer Rob Caggianno having successfully crossed the Atlantic on what must be his fourth attempt in under a week and the band having been nicely tucked away in their respectful bedrooms, where i would indeed be now if it weren't for the fact that Rob has chosen to put the bass cabs directly beneath me in an attempt to shake all the teeth out of my head.

Incidentally Rob has been rather ill for the last four months with a stomach parasite he ingested from some dodgy food he ate in Mexico. No, the food didn't have Anthrax, but it did have something in it that causes Rob to have to take fifteen different homeopathic tablets three times daily. He actually showed us a picture of the horror he ate as taken by Scott Ian, who apparently warned him not to eat what looks like a meat 'Millenium Falcon'. In actual fact it was a skinned raw Goat's face complete with sagging eyeballs, but to a pissed-up Rob it looked like heaven.

You can see more of Rob in this state on our forthcoming DVD. He is also available for weddings and Bar Mitzvahs.

On the studio front there's not a great deal to report other than Paul's face has instantly begun to melt, sitting in front of his 50 inch computer screen (you know what they say about big screens don't you...), rehearsing the tracks and smoking the herb as if his facial elasticity depended on it. Charles is his accomplice in the rehearsal side of things although he prefers a box of nineteenth century nasal snuff to weed and a lengthy piss up at the pub with me and various sheep farmers. Adrian and Dave are busy recording drums and bass whilst i wile away the first few days amending the latest chapter to 'The Gospel Of Filth' and writing this pile of old baloney.

Incidentally the book is still progressing nicely although as you can imagine the whole process is a lengthy one what with the constant migration of ideas between conspirators and the amount of research that has gone into it's construction, although author Gavin Badderley has promised to deliver it early next year. Still, the wait will be worth it i can promise you, the chapter i have just finished proof reading on (to tie in with the chapter headed "Cruelty And The Beast") is extremely cantankerous, tracing the history of serial murder from Medieval attributions to werewolves through to modern day vampire-killers and cannibals. This chapter also features an alternative narrative on the Norwegian Black Metal murders of the mid-nineties as well as quotes and useful insights by everyone from Mushroomhead to Emperor to Charlie Manson. The next time i put poisoned ink to paper i will include a preview of one of the more juicier parts of the text for your delectation and much-sought after approval. But only if you're good girls and boys...

Never before in the history of this band have we been so ready for an album prior to going in. All of the songs have been rehearsed and demoed relentlessly, Paul is actually going over one even as we speak, over and over again to the point where i wish i'd never been born with ears. Like a bat. Still, in my sensory radar is the smell of dinner being slowly cooked, which is one great benefit of being cooped up in a residential studio. The food! By the time i go to India at the end of the year i will doubtless be about the size of a balloon with a face like Vince Neil back on the booze. To be fair though, everyone is making an effort to stay a little in shape this time around, even to the point of an early morning jog. And Dave has upped wanking himself off to five times a day AND with the other hand! Apparently. The threat of an upcoming UK tour will do that to a man you know.

On the tour front the tickets sales are going so well we subsequently decided to add in a warm-up show in sunny Colchester the day prior to Southampton. Tickets for this are scant and going fast so you'd better grab them quick if you wish to see us at our musical and possible physical worse (five weeks worth of studio banquets later... ).

Anyway, that seems to be all for now, i promise to keep you updated on a regular basis although as of next week i will be starting vocal duties concurrently in studio two. This is so i'm not left to the last minute with a stomach full of flutterbies.

We are also doing several covers during this recording period and if someone out there can guess what they are, then a signed photo of Charles wearing our new girlie knicker and bra set shall be yours. You lucky fuckers! Till next i befoul the air with my presence.... hope you all had a happy halloween! With love,

Count Filth."
