Hammers of Misfortune
"The band's alien yet olden vibe pulls you in right from the start, The August Engine sounding like a cross between the NWOBHM and Jasonic-era Voivod, with melodies, acoustic respites and suspensions of belief right out of the curmudgeonly Animals album by Pink Floyd. Hell, throw in old school doom and accessible Death Angel to that arcane mix as well...The end result is a singularly unique sound that is in effect a psychedelic version of the most golden moments from Maiden; epic yes, but completely and firmly at a high artistic level that never evokes the cheese of power metal. Entirely something new, and entirely something creatively masterful." - BRAVE WORDS BLOODY KNUCKLES

Psychotogen
"If you are a musician then it might do you good to brace yourself mentally before listening to this album as you might develop a massive inferiority complex. Yup, this is awe inspiring technical death metal, brought to you by a band who did impress with their Perverse And Unnatural Practices debut, but have managed to up the ante drastically with this release...I strongly recommend listening to this on a pair of good headphones, which will be helpful in discovering all sorts of goodies, like the crazy bass work...Without any kind of doubt, this is my Pick of the Issue #1." - MAELSTROM WEBZINE

Trivium
"...Trivium also stand above their peers by being able to write a song with hooks that stick in the listener's head instead of just uncontrollably jumping around from genre to genre. The diehard metal dudes/dudettes might be scared off by the melodies enclosed within, which is another sign Trivium is doing something right. Not entirely breaking ground, Trivium are still hanging out outside the beaten path, using elements of metalcore, thrash and what is damn near indie rock at times. I mean, after listening to crud like the new Avenged Sevenfold, this shit is brilliant." - EXCLAIM

Omen
"Most of you out there will remember OMEN from the 80's. If you don't, they play a very strong style of Power Metal music. It's been nearly 20 years since the band started & they are still going strong on this album with their signature sound. The guitars on this release sometimes have a Thrash metal type vibe to them. The vocals are done in a mix of Power Metal & Thrash Metal styles. You would never think there was a big gap between their last album & this new one, cause they never skipped a beat. Any fan of their earlier work would be very pleased with this new disc!!!" - TREATS FROM THE UNDERGROUND

Helvis
"This album is one hell of a roller coaster ride. It definitely goes all over the place, and just when you think you know what it's all about you fall 1000 feet and your guts and in your throat. Pretty much every sub genre has a little place in the Helvis sound. There's a lot of dirty rock n roll, hardcore, sludge, and even some death metal. It could almost be described as Motorhead meets Eyehategod with a healthy dose of Napalm Death's slower moments thrown in. A few tracks have a bit of an Entombed style swagger to them as well. They have some fairly upbeat tracks too, which definitely have more then a little of a crust feel to them." - UNBOUND ZINE

Asterius
"Asterius is certainly very experimental, it would be hard to try to classify them as one genre or even a combination of two. What you have with Asterius is a very intense, and crushing style of music that runs the gamut from black to speed metal and back again...Asterius is most assuredly like nothing you have heard. I highly encourage at least one try. It might not be for everyone, but it will definitely grab you and keep a hold of you if you like extreme metal." - 1340MAG.COM

YOB
"When stoner rock disappeared up it's own beer-bloated chuffer, bands like YOB stood apart from the whole sorry episode and waved the doom flag with pride. Fans of Sleep and Electric Wizard will feel at home with this US rock trio's lumbering space rock. Mike Scheidt's vocals are the clincher; alternating between inhuman death metal bellowing and a King Diamondesque shriek, he brings an other worldly quality to this wall of heaviness." - KERRANG

  HARKONIN NEWS!!!!!


What's up all?

It's been busy at the Harkonin camp here recently. Got some news for everyone, so let's dive right in, shall we?

First off, we would like to take a minute to thank everyone that came out to the show at Creepy Crawl on the 27th. It was a great time, good turnout, and all the bands that played simply killed.

Next show is January 10th at Club 313 in Belleville, Illinois. This is a Fey Victus Production, and a free show. Doors open at 7:00, show starts at 8:00. We will be appearing alongside our brothers in Animated Dead and Diabolic Possession, as well as Forevershadows and Legion. For more information, log onto http://www.feyvictus.tk, http://www.three-1-three.com, or contact Morbid Mark of Fey Victus Productions at morbidmark@charter.net.

As most of you know, since our inception we have been proudly affiliated with Heavycore, the Brotherhood of Heavy Bands. After long consideration and discussion amongst Harkonin, we have decided not to continue with Heavycore. We will continue to link to them, however, we simply do not feel that we (being one of the few Black Metal bands on the 'Core roster) are necessarily right for them. We appreciate everything that Pete Altieri and The 'Core have done for us, and we will support them.

It came to our attention recently that Harkonin has been written up in St. Louis' local mainstream entertainment newspaper, The Riverfront Times. The article can be found both in the print versions, and online at this link: http://riverfronttimes.com/issues/2003-12-24/performance.html/1/index.html. We are extremely pleased to see that someone out there is paying attention. This article came as a complete surprise to all of us, and was unsolicited, so that means the world to us as a band struggling for a bit of respect and recognition. Is Harkonin on our way? We shall see...

In case you have not been to the website recently, we are pleased to announce that the PayPal link is active to order "Seductress of The Unlight" directly from the site. Go to the website (link below), and click the album cover in the top right hand corner to order. Also, on the Media page, you can now download two full length tracks from the CD directly from the site. Apparently without any warning, musicbuilder.com, where we had the tracks available from previously has been torn down. So now, to download two songs from "Seductress...", simply go to our website, click the media page, and scroll to what you want. There are also 5 live songs from our performance at Berzerker Studios on 8/30/03.

One last thing, I have started up a graphic design business called Diabolical Masterworks. If anyone out there needs a band logo, custom desktop wallpaper, CD covers, flyers, or any other digital artwork please check out my site and prices, or for info contact me at diabolical_masterworks@yahoo.com.

That's all we have for now. Check out the links below, and support the scene! Thanks for sticking with us. 2004 is going to be great for the Brethren of War, so come out and fight with us!

Horns High!!!

- ENGLISH -
Coming out from France (Toulouse), ZUBROWSKA is a new and young band with the firm intention of blending the best elements of brutal Death and Metalcore. And we can testify that they’re doing it with unusual hability!!

“One On Six” is their first album with 12 songs that combine the technic and velocity of CRYPTOPSY, the complex craziness of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, the heavy and catchy riffs of DYING FETUS, the weird chords and song structures of CONVERGE and the unexpected mixture of CEPHALIC CARNAGE... all this enriched with two dynamic vocalists and helped with a powerful and crystal-clear production.

ZUBROWSKA is one of these bands that convinces, since the very first listening thanx to their freshness, brutality and technical skills, to both lovers of the most modern brutal Death fans and the most corrosive Metalcore freaks.

ZUBROWSKA es una de ésas bandas que convence desde su primera escucha gracias a su frescura, brutalidad y técnica, tanto a los amantes del más moderno brutal Death como a los del más corrosivo Metalcore.

  XTREEM MUSIC promotions presents: ERIAMINELL




ERIAMINELL - "Enraged"


1. Stonehearted
2. Braindead
3. Shapeshifter
4. Untermensch
5. Submissive Hookers
6. Perish In Flames
7. Arms
8. Resentment
[Human Damnation]
9. Oceanic Deamonic Plutarchia
10. Self Destructive


- ENGLISH -
ERIAMINELL was born in the year 2000 by the will of Lugdush and Vuall, who are joined by Malphas on guitar and bass after endless lineup changes. After Malphas's arrival the band move from the rawest of Black Metal to a genre they like to call "cyber brutal Death Black Metal".

This improvement in style is strongly desired by the band in its entirety, who strive for as personal a sound as possible. We can recognize influences from bands such as Nocturnus, Helstar, Suffocation, Emperor and Limbonic Art, and from some electro-stuff.

ERIAMINELL start composing and after a good while their debut album "Enraged" is ready to be recorded, and they enter the "All Music" studios in Florence to record it and mix it in just one day.

A copy of the album is sent to Nocturnus, legendary floridian technical Death Metal band ("The Key", "Thresholds") and they like it so much they agree to write a promo text for ERIAMINELL.

Then the band sign for Nocturnal Music, and immediately start working on new material, described as more Black Metal oriented than ever, yet more melodic and progressive compared to the devastating debut album.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- ESPAÑOL -
ERIAMINELL nació en el año 2000 gracias a Lugdush y Vuall, a quienes se les unió Malphas a la guitarra y bajo tras innumerables cambios de formación. Tras la llegada de Malphas a la formación, la banda se movió desde el más crudo Black Metal a lo que ellos dan en llamar "cyber brutal Death Black Metal".

Esta evolución en el estilo fue algo fuertemente deseado por la banda al completo, quienes se esfuerzan en conseguir un sonido lo más personal posible. Podemos distinguir influencias de bandas como Nocturnus, Helstar, Suffocation, Emperor y Limbonic Art, así como también material electrónico.

ERIAMINELL empezó a componer y tras un buen espacio de tiempo, su álbum debut "Enraged" estuvo listo para ser grabado, con lo que entraron en los "All Music" Studios de Florencia para grabarlo y mezclarlo en tan sólo un día.

Una copia del álbum fue enviada a Nocturnus, legendaria banda de Death Metal técnico de Florida ("The Key", "Thresholds") y les gustó tanto que acordaron escribir un texto promocional para ERIAMINELL.

Entonces la banda firmó para Nocturnal Music e inmediatamente comenzaron a trabajar en nuevo material, descrito como más orientado al Black Metal que antes, aunque más melódico y progresivo comparado con su devastador álbum debut.

  Pigface - WHAT TOURING IS ALL ABOUT!!!!!



The United Tour vs The World 2003

Well fuck me, it feels like we have just done the impossible, and maybe we did. Sometimes, maybe always, PIGFACE and these tours are a test, asking, always asking for that last ounce of energy, cash or sweat. It is difficult, with the real world swirling around our heads, to find the strength, the vibe or the spark to ignite a larger fire – take Toledo (please!) on a damp Tuesday in late November for instance – we all – bands and crew – threw our sticks on the fire, poured out ut the last few drops of precious kerosene from our dwindling internal supply and maybe said to ourselves – there you go – that's all I have to give, fuck it (I know I did – it wwas one of many black days for me) THEN, the dying embers of this thing start to glow a little bit, the audience pours their fuel onto the fire, flames leap, combustion on all levels occurs and we all bathe in its healing toasty glow.
T H A N K Y O U !
As much as I love whatever this Pigface thing is ( new additions, returning original members and the rest of you fuckers) The real story here, the backbone of all of this, the fucking damp proof matches – has beeen the crew: Jerry, Joe, Jim, Scotty, Andrew, Luke and Christopher – (and lets not forget Patrick , Condo and Richard!) JESUS, a horrible surprise every day: 3 opening bands, early load, STAIRS, no loaders, no rider, no stage, no room to breathe or think, no time and we are already behind, no space for the merch and more stairs and more boxes of shirts somewhere in the US…..fuck!, THANKYOU!. Anything will seem simple after this, you will laugh at what other people think of as problems and I hope that, although we are all a little bit depleted, weakened and our power levels are flashing red – this experience will ultimately empoower you with a tool that others strive for : the knowledge that whatever happens, it can be and will be dealt with and you will carry with you that - Clint Eastwood High Plains Drifter - quality that frightens some and reassures others – it cannot be purchased except by the high price that yoou have paid during these last five weeks –
T H A N K Y O U !
An extra special thanks to Curse for wading into the shit with me (thank God! – no sandals!) and showing me what great tour management could be and what friendship IS!
You are the smoke on my water, baby!

Let me first say thank you to all the people, bands, record companies, venues, promoters and small business that we did business with this past year.
We appreciate your business, partronage and look forward to working with you again.

2003 has been a pretty good year for us, despite some growing pains we have grown quite a bit and look forward to continued growth in 2004. The biggest
news for most of you will be our updated price list that we are launching. Basically we have gone to an all in price structure, so there are no set-up fees, film fees, screen fees, we also includes sales tax into our price
so what ever unit price we quote or you see on our on line price list (www.tshirtink.com/custom.html) is what you pay - if you want your stuff shipped then shipping charges will apply. In addition we have made some changes to our business that helped us to reduce our operating costs and so
we have been able to bring our prices down a bit. Our market research over the last couple of months indicates that we have some of the best prices in
the SF Bay Area. Re-orders of the same image will also get a slight discount as well.

Another exciting addition for us is our involvement with Heavy Core - which is an ass-kicking site for all you metal heads. In addition to an upcoming sponsorship of their Brutality Report we are also offering "members"
and "supporters" of the site (youknow who you are) a discount on printing so give us a call or send us an email for a quote.

The only other change we are working on is our own line of apparel which will be coming out soon, we have decided to launch it under a new apparel company
we are forming so once that is all finalized we will let you know.

that is it, thanks and wish you all the best in 2004.

  Cannibal Corpse w/Hypocrisy, Exhumed & Vile


Cannibal Corpse w/Hypocrisy, Exhumed & Vile
$15 Advance/$17 Day Of
All Ages
Thursday, February 26th
(Tickets on sale Friday, December 26th at all Ticketmaster locations.)

BANNED in Australia, New Zealand & Korea BANNED from performing any material off their first three albums in Germany, where the sale of "Butchered At Birth" is outlawed completely!

It has been 11 years since a small band out of Buffalo, New York released their gorified Metal Blade Records debut EATEN BACK TO LIFE, and in their decade+ existence, CANNIBAL CORPSE have accomplished much more than getting their music and concerts banned. CANNIBAL CORPSE have been repeatedly targeted by the morality police (Gore, PMRC, Lieberman,
Dole), appeared in a blockbuster Hollywood feature film (Ace Venture: Pet Detective), debuted as the only Death Metal band to rank on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart, graced the covers of virtually every Metal
magazine in the world, toured the globe routinely and sold millions of records. All of this with zero commercial radio airplay and no exposure from MTV, save the periodic obligatory controversial news segment. On
February 26th, 2002, GORE OBSESSED, the band's eighth full-length studio album, will redefine the Death Metal genre and reign as CANNIBAL CORPSE's
most accomplished and scrutinized recording to date. While not infringing on their trademark sound, CANNIBAL CORPSE and multi-platinum first time
CORPSE producer NEIL KERNON (Queensryche, Nevermore, Skrew, Macabre and many more) focused on technically powerful guitars and unmatched bass &
drum syncopation that will leave the current crop of corporate makeup metallers slack jawed. "Pit Of Zombies" rips with alternating tempos and
time changes that never leaves the listener behind, but drags them screaming into the pit. "Mutilation Of The Cadaver" is another prime chunk of meat that sees vocalist George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher easily spewing
forth his finest vocal fury on record (including an unnerving fourteen second scream).

Eight albums in and CANNIBAL CORPSE have never defied their core fan base, continually strengthening their place as the most enduring, relevant and uncompromising Death Metal band ever. With GORE OBSESSED introducing future classics "Sanded Faceless", "Hung And Bled", "When Death
Replaces Life" and "Dormant Bodies Bursting", CANNIBAL CORPSE have buried any and all possibility of being dethroned as the reigning purveyors of
aural gore and sonic splatter. Sure to once again peek the interest of those who feel it their responsibility to protect the moral fiber of America's youth culture, CANNIBAL CORPSE again turned to long time friend
and artist VINCENT LOCK to create a visual representation of GORE OBSESSED that could match the band's musical depiction. Having set a high
standard with album covers for BUTCHERED AT BIRTH and TOMB OF THE MUTILATED, LOCKE, as expected, delivered the gore, and more. The CD cover for
GORE OBSESSED will be masked for retail outlets as no "censored" cover will be available domestically. Upon the release of GORE OBSESSED, CANNIBAL CORPSE will headline the 2002 SPRING NECK BREAK U.S. Tour, which, in its second year will once again feature the top extreme Metal bands in the world.




 
  Life Of Agony w/Flaw, Skrape & Collateral Insight (live @ POPS St. Louis)


Life Of Agony w/Flaw, Skrape & Collateral Insight
$15 Advance/$15 Day Of
All Ages
Wednesday, February 11th
(Tickets on sale Friday, December 26th at all Ticketmaster locations.)

LIFE OF AGONY, a name not easily forgotten. There was always something unique and interesting about this band that has kept fans enthralled for over a decade. Whether it was the intensity of their live
performances or the haunting melodies & lyrical content, this group radiated a passion and emotion that struck a chord in the hearts of misunderstood
youth all over the world. Perhaps, it was the underlying message of strength, hidden within the group's tales of despair that made such an impact on people. For most listeners, understanding that the songs came from a
genuine place, based on actual experiences made the message really hit home, that they were not alone.

New York's crossover legends LIFE OF AGONY spawned in the summer of 1989, tearing through the underground scene with an undeterred aggression,
obtaining a loyal and devoted cult audience in the process. The outfit caught Roadrunner Record's eye and the band quickly signed to the independent label. The band recruited longtime friend and producer Josh
Silver (of the platinum-selling goth/metal act Type O Negative) to guide them, creating the now classic, debut album, 1993's "River Runs Red." The
band toured relentlessly for years building a die-hard fan base. With each following record, 1995's "Ugly" and 1997's "Soul Searching Sun" the group seemed to morph and evolve, using different approaches and
textures while never losing sight of the distinct elements that made them who they were. LOA toured with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Korn, Limp
Bizkit, System of a Down and Incubus with great success in support of their 3 studio efforts.

The LOA band members had been good friends since early childhood, and remained as closely knit as a family. Like all families do, they shared internal problems and conflicts from time to time. Unfortunately, the group ended up imploding over a series of decisions involving member changes, personal issues and differences in musical direction. Original drummer Sal Abruscato exited in 1995 and lead vocalist Keith Caputo left the group in 1997. Remaining members, guitarist Joey Z and bassist Alan Robert, struggled to rekindle the fire that once drove the group by collaborating with new players, but finally decided to call it quits in
1999.

For just two nights, January 3rd and 4th of 2003, the magic happened again. LOA announced a one-time only reunion show, with all four original members together again on stage for the first time since 1995. After
the first date sold out in under 20 minutes, a second show was announced to ensure that more fans would get a chance to witness the historic occasion. Ask bassist Alan Robert his thoughts on the reunion and he will tell you, "After all we've been through together, it's apparent that we have a rare and special chemistry that cannot be duplicated." Guitarist Joey Z states, "We always did what we did because we are fans of the
music first." LIFE OF AGONY was a cornerstone of the New York heavy music scene, respected by peers and fans alike. The group cites collective influences as diverse as Radiohead, Metallica, Pink Floyd, and Black
Sabbath. While you can hear those various influences in LIFE OF AGONY, you can hear touches of LOA in some of today's more popular bands.

January 3rd & 4th 2003, not only marked a turning point for this influential band, but their reunion shows have sparked a whole string of new possibilities. LIFE OF AGONY, who have long been considered, as gone
but not forgotten, just may be back as a force to be reckoned with. The future of the group looks bright, as the band members are very excited to be playing together again. The problems that the band experienced which lead to their demise seem to be rectified. LOA have recently confirmed a full-blown European tour for October/November 2003. The tour is
scheduled to support their upcoming SPV Records double-live album/DVD release "River Runs Again: Live 2003" commemorating their triumphant return.



 
  New @ Score! Music


Shouts of "Happy Freaking Holidays!" can be heard throughout the offices of Score! Music Magazine, resonating around areas in close proximity (and even carrying through to more distant locations at times).
While we admit that we too love the holidays. Heck, any excuse to drink something spiked with rum or eat cookies by the tin-full is reason enough to celebrate in our book. But we are not immune to the Christmastime
stressors. Just getting into the car to pick up a gallon of milk to wash those cookies down (yes we do drink things that are non-alcoholic on occasion) finds us cursing like sailors and shaking our fists at our
fellow roadway lemmings. And gift shopping?!?! Forget about it! That task alone is enough to turn you into Mr. or Ms. Scrooge! So, since we feel your pain, and know what a headache the holiday preparations can
bring, we've decided now would be a great time to bring you some new articles from Score! Music. The Score! elves have been busy writing a rticles with the goal of helping you forget, if only for a short time,
about the vein throbbing in you left temple, or that new tic you've developed.

Now take a deep breath... Inhale... Exhale... Inhale (yes, it's okay to inhale!)... Exhale...

INDEPTH
CONNOR O'BRIEN reaffirms Matt's belief that "good singers are trained, not talented". And he says Mr. O'Brien obviously "learned a thing or two in college". Matthew then takes a look at THREE MILES OUT, "the raw energy of a modern punk-pop band with the musicality of old school glam rock" he says, results in a "fairly enjoyable listening experience."
http://www.scorerocks.com/indepth.html

SHORTIES
Janelle, one of our elves who has recently offered to take on the task of proofing, thus easing our holiday woes a little more, checks out ELECTRIC TURN TO ME which she described as "Excellent". Then her initial
impression of "PUNK GOES ACOUSTIC" explains it all: " plenty of emo/screamo bands - pretty self-explanatory, I'd say." Matt chimes in again with FRED AVRIL and says "this is one of those albums that wraps itself around you, blocking out the world with its intergalactic glow for an hour or so." He recommends it, so we figure you should probably check it out!
http://www.scorerocks.com/shorties.html

INTERVIEW
Busy slave Janelle gets it on with TV SMITH (in an interview... you and your dirty mind!) They talk about everything from "touring the U.S., performing, writing his new record "Not A Bad Day", and of course,
touched upon his days in The Adverts and what it was like to be part of what really is considered to be the last youth cultural movement". Read all about it here:
We've also added some new things to the Rabid Fans section of the website... you'll wanna check that out, cuz it's always so entertaining!
http://www.scorerocks.com/voyeurzone.html
And that's all folks! The Sirens are off to start making merry and trying to leave all the stress of the season behind. So join us in partaking of some nog and cookies! We hope you have blessed holiday season!
May your stockings be filled with goodies and your New Year wishes come true!

xoxo Sirens Kimmie and Cristy

  heavycore - final reminder



Heavycore Brothers:

This is the last email I'm sending out to remind bands about the new membership policy. Effective 1/1/04 the membership list will be updated on the site. Any bands who do not re-apply and pick option 1 or 2 of paying their membership dues will be removed from Heavycore.

You can pick to either pay $10 or buy $15 or more in merchandise to keep current. For your membership fee you're going to see lots of things new in 2004 in the Core.

www.lowtwelve.com/membership-signup.html (sign up here)

What are some things coming up on the site that you'll be able to enjoy as a member?

1. Members Only Area - I am going to create a password protected members only area where I plan on posting gig contacts all over the world, and many other resources for the bands to use. This will take a while to build - but once I get it going - it should be a great way for you to find clubs for gigs with great contact info . . . plus info on radio, zines, and others who actually take the time to review your music and give you some decent promo!

2. Expanded Merchandise - with the new membership fee, we'll be able to broaden the merchandise section. We've already added the beanies and skull caps . . . and more will follow. Of course the "Roasting Posers Volume I" DVD will be coming in early 2004 - pick one of those up! You'll get 10% off our merchandise once you're a card carrying member.

3. New Server/Host - I'm moving the site to a new host which will be able to give us streaming audio and video. This should really improve the site. We'll be moving to the new host later this week.

4. Expanded Service will be offered to Heavycore bands who want to put an mp3 on the site in a streaming format with others. This should be totally kick ass and a great feature to add especially with the demise of mp3.com

SUPPORTERS! You'll be getting an email shortly about updating your information for the new supporters page - so hang in there.

So bands - don't let your Heavycore membership slip away. Join forces with us and stay in the Core. Click the link below to go and sign up now, as an existing band to speed up the process.

www.lowtwelve.com/membership-signup.html
I wish all of you good things in 2004 and hope you decide to stay a part of the greatest organization in metal today.

Core Til Death,

Pete Altieri - Founder & Chief Disposer of Posers

12.22.03 - Life lost..

Life is fleeting, everyone knows that. When you're not looking its got the nastiest way of going bad. Nothing hurts quite as much as losing a friend...
someone you love. Saturday morning, December 20th, Louie Garon, a dear friend of ours passed away. Victim of a struggle with cancer he was unable to overcome.
News like that hits you like cold steel right through the heart. As a result, we've confirmed it, Shiverdown will be part of 2004's edition of Moshcore, a fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society, this coming February. We'll add more information on this shortly. Our deepest and most heartfelt condolences go to Louie's family and anyone who's had the privilege of knowing him. Rest
in peace my friend, you'll never be forgotten. We're gonna miss you terribly…
This one's for you Louie… Ben

- ENGLISH -
LAY DOWN ROTTEN were formed back in 1999 as a solo-project of Daniel Jakobi who was playing bass in a Power Metal band at that time. In fact he wasn't very happy with that because his heart was pounding for good old Death Metal, so after recording one song by himself, he started to recruit musicians for his band and in November 2000 they recorded their first demo "Colder As Cold".

After playing some shows with regional stablished bands in order to gain some live experience, the band recorded their second demo "Way Of Weakness" in July 2001. New songs were written during 2002, and in April 2003, the band entered the studio again, this time to record their debut album "Paralyzed By Fear". Shortly after, a deal was signed with REMISSION REC. for the release of this album which came out in November that year.

For those who aren't familiar with LAY DOWN ROTTEN and for those who love the mighty old school Death Metal, this album includes 10 songs of a heavy and catchy stuff influenced by bands like HYPOCRISY, FLESHCRAWL, BOLT THROWER, AT THE GATES, GOREFEST...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- ESPAÑOL -
LAY DOWN ROTTEN se formó allá por 1999 como un proyecto en solitario de Daniel Jakobi quien por aquel entonces tocaba el bajo en una banda de Power Metal. De hecho él no estaba muy contento con éso, ya que su corazón latía por el buen Death Metal, así que tras grabar un tema él mismo, comenzó a reclutar músicos para su banda y en Noviembre del 2000 grabaron su primera demo "Colder As Cold".

Tras tocar algunos conciertos con bandas reginales con más nombre para ganar algo de experiencia en vivo, la banda grabó su segunda demo "Way Of Weakness" en Julio del 2001. Ya en el 2002, la benda compuso nuevos temas y fue en Abril del 2003 cuando decidieron entrar de nuevo en estudio, ésta vez para grabar su primer álbum completo "Paralyzed By Fear". Poco después, la banda consiguió un contrato con REMISSION REC. para la edición de éste álbum que fue editado en Noviembre del mismo año.

Para aquellos que no estén familiarizados con LAY DOWN ROTTEN y para aquellos que aman el poderoso Death Metal de la vieja escuela, éste álbum incluye 10 temas de un material pesado y pegadizo influenciado por bandas como HYPOCRISY, FLESHCRAWL, BOLT THROWER, AT THE GATES, GOREFES

  Nocturne update: December 19th



Hello everyone!

A couple of weeks ago, I told you all that I was nominated for the category of "FEMALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR" by Dallas' biggest commercial hard rock station, 97.1 The Eagle. I asked you all to vote, and
apparently you all did, because I won the award! Yay! So I just wanted to give you all an enormous THANK YOU for voting. I accepting the award on the
air last Sunday night. I also wanted to thank Robert Miguel and everyone at The Eagle for the nomination and for their support in local music.

On a different subject, the Nocturne message board has been receiving a TON of traffic lately, and there are some really interesting topics that have come up. If you haven't visited our board yet, then you should!
Here is the link:

http://www.nocturne.cc/cgi-bin/board/ikonboard.cgi

Chris and I are currently very busy finishing our new CD, and we have no shows planned for the next couple of months. So you will probably not receive another e-mail from me for at least a month or so. (But I'll
still be posting on the message board.) So in the mean time, I would like to wish you all a very safe and fun holiday!!! Thank you all so much for your tremendous support this past year. We couldn't do this
without all of you, and your support and faith in our band means so much to us. Nocturne is going to attack 2004 full force, so be prepared to see a lot of us in the coming year!!!

Take care,

- Lacey

  [VNStreetTeam] Some Exciting news!


Okay street teamers. Looks like next year is going to be a busy year for you. As well as our normal gigs and play dates, it looks like it has been confirmed:

Verbal Narcotic WILL BE TOURING in the summer of 2004 with fellow Heavycore bands 3 Headed Moses(Missouri) and Ominous(New Jersey)...we don't have all the details worked out as yet, but as soon as we do, we'll let you know. Obviously the more you can all
help out with promoting the band this year, the better the tour will turn out.

Also, we'll be doing the Metal Hotties calendar for '04 since we had more than enough volunteers to be able to do it. Make sure to get your copy, and know that in doing so, you will be helping us out by funding our tour. They should be ready for release in mid-January
if all goes well.....

  StonerRock.com Newsletter


Howdy!!

This here is a StonerRock.com Newsletter!! You're used to getting regular All That's Heavy newsletters from me but I really haven't sent out too many of these StonerRock.com Newsletters in the past. I probably won't be doing too many more in the future, either. Right now I have some very big and very special StonerRock.com announcements to make and let me just be very clear that I'm extremely thrilled and proud to be doing so! Here goes:


NEWSLETTER CONTENTS:
=======================
1) StonerRock.com 4 Year Anniversary!

2) StonerRock.com Performance Upgrades!

3) K666 Radio is Back and Better than Ever!




1) StonerRock.com 4 Year Anniversary!
===============================
Yep!! That's right! As of today StonerRock.com has been online for 4 full years!! I officially launched StonerRock.com on December 15th, 1999 and it's pretty much taken up every second of my time and every ounce of my energy since then! Don't think I'm complaining though - I had nothing better to do anyways and it has definitely been worth all of the
effort!!! I am very happy to say that StonerRock.com is still going strong!

Over the last 4 years StonerRock.com has surpassed:

~20,000 registered community members
~650,000 messages posted to our forums
~1,800 titles added to our All That's Heavy store
~1,200 MP3s added to our MP3 Jukebox
~2,600 live band photos

Wow!!! Thank You to all of our visitors, members and customers for continuing to support what we're doing! Here's hoping there's another 40 years to come!!




2) StonerRock.com Performance Upgrades!
==================================
As of October 31st the StonerRock.com webpages and files started downloading at lightning fast speeds! Over the course of the last 4 years we have had to continually upgrade StonerRock.com to handle the rapidly and constantly increasing number of daily visitors. We originally started out on a shared server which hosted StonerRock.com along with many
other small websites. Before too long StonerRock.com had bogged that sever down with so much traffic that we were basically forced to upgrade to a
dedicated server by our hosting provider, even though we really couldn't afford it at that time. And then it didn't even take a year before we'd outgrown our dedicated server!! We really couldn't afford another
upgrade at that time so, admittedly, StonerRock.com has been quite slow for the last year (or even two). At one point we even ran a fund raiser raffle to raise some money for the upgrade but we fell far short of our goal - so it never happened. Finally, we are able to afford this badly needed upgrade and it's a doozy!!

StonerRock.com is now running on 2 brand new super-beefy state-of-the-art dedicated server machines! This means that the general download speeds of our webpages, MP3s and images will be immensely faster than they were before October 31st. Pages that used to take 30 seconds or even a minute to fully load will now load within the blink of an eye in most
cases. The difference really is AMAZING!!

We've been working towards this upgrade for a very long time and it had seemed impossibly out of reach until now. I really hope you're all enjoying the much, much, much faster StonerRock.com!!




3) K666 Radio is Back and Better than Ever!
==================================
If the performance upgrade was "a long time coming" then this "took an eternity". Again, I'm absolutely thrilled that I am announcing this finally!!! K666 Radio is back online!!!! AND, it's now finally available
in a high-bandwidth 96kbps version (near CD quality sound!) as well as the low-bandwidth 24kbps version that we've always had!! Other K666 improvements include an online playlist so you can see what's playing even if your player doesn't list the song titles. We've also added 3000 more MP3s to the playlist!! This brings the K666 Radio playlist well over
8000 songs!! Check out all of the new K666 Radio features by visiting http://www.stonerrock.com/ ad clicking on the "K666 Radio" link in the top menu. If you're looking for an easy way to find new music, K666 Radio is it!!!

Well, that should do it for another year or two!! Let's hope the news
is this good next time around!! Thank you so much for all of your
support over the last 4 years!! It's your fault that we're still online!!!!
