NEWS: 

27-09-2016 French shoegaze,post-rock,black metal formation ALCEST just released the brandnew record Kodama/Prophecy Productions.Formed by Neige the band always sets new standards, and always brings the listener something exciting and new material without getting annoyed or boring.A real adventure in man's ears.The band dares to take steps into new directions,in which others call it a day.

Alcest - Music from another world.

Alcest was founded in the year 2000 by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Neige (aka. Stéphane Paut) and later joined by drummer Winterhalter (Jean Deflandre) in 2009. Labeled as post metal/shoegaze or “blackgaze”, Alcest were the pioneers within this genre, crafting a unique sound based on musical opposites from their very first EP “Le Secret” (2005), and thru their full length releases “Souvenirs D'Un Autre Monde” (2007), “Écailles De Lune” (2010) and “Les Voyages De L'Ame” (2012). In 2014 their fourth album “Shelter” was released, marking the band's departure from the more metal sound, in favor of dream-pop aesthetics, surprising and somewhat challenging their fan base. In retrospective, the album opened new doors for Alcest, bringing them an audience from different horizons and a positive sense of unpredictability as musicians.   https://www.alcest-music.com/

24-03-2016 'It wouldn’t be a Blastfest without some Finns taking part. In addition to the usual lot of Sisu-sporting and austere visitors from the land of the thousand lakes, we this year also expect the horned and horny Horna. These purveyors of true Finnish black metal have been requested by many of you, and if you’re into the chaotic and passionate, you’re in for a thrill with these guys!' Blastfest.


Kristian 'Gaahl' Espedal will keep an exhibition on Blastfest from Thursday 'til Saturday on Blastfest, in which he will be present himself.Gaahl made an entrance to the Black Metal scene in the early nineties with the formation TRELLDOM.He made quite the impressions talking about his philosphy,and his point of seeing the world.Besides that he made quite the entrance to GORGOROTH,and especially the controversial 'Black Mass Krakow', which they had sheepheads in front of the stage , and nudity served on the cross on the background.Besides that he followed the academy of art, and held some exhibitions in the past already, as working along on some documentaries.Gaahl also appeared in the book of Peter Beste photography, which came with some pages of lines coming to the past of the Norwegian Black Metal scene.

- Which Metal,Pop,Rock -band do you wanna see on The True EGGFEST>>Moonspell Rites Promotions,which will take place (no dates confirmed yet) in the Achterhoek, between the borders of Eibergen/Neede (no location confirmed yet).3 days,4 marketstreets, and 5 stages (no confirmations yet).Sent in your list of bands,or the ones you really would like to see.Contactaddress: info@normaal.nl The True Eggfest>>Moonspell Rites Promotions is a continuation of Metalweide, which occured on the  Zwarte Cross fest.(Lichtenvoorde) inside De Schans and soil.


As good as confirmed.MARDUK (SE) with Erik Legion on Vocals, and with Peter Tagtren,and MORGAN (Oldtime warbrothers) on guitars,B-War on bassguitar,and Fredrik Andersson on drums.The complete 'Panzer Division Marduk' setlist.A half hour of intense Black Metal delivered your way.

Another special concept will be the 90's Gothic,Black Metal style for the Metalheads.Think about the era in which Cradle of Filth and Emperor broke through.Special guests will be a handful of French and Italian bands.As before the fest.some important Black Metal icons will walk over the field 2 days before, together with some of the Rock icons from the eighties to introduce the festival.Neseblod also will be present for The True MAYHEM.

Andy of Soror Dolorosa (FR) will keep a special lecture, after releasing 4 books .The band will give a set of 40,or 45 mins long.

'' Motorcycle gangs.Park your bikes backstage inside the tent please''

Eibergen always kept their cityrights since even earlier than 1600, and always will.The papers and rights we own. (Hoenderboom,Somsen and Jolink,NORMAAL) The towns hide a large arrows of history coming to Witchtrails,Occultism, and Satanism.

22-02-2016 Open discussions about releases always will be there...non-paying and non-trading cumstomers will be hold higly in doubts in the future.Contracts nowadays tell nothing.After more than 7 years and only see 1 or 2 official contracts appear on Social Medias like Facebook i believe there are no solutions to such crimes.Verbal agreement is very difficult to prove, and most of the time court cases end up in very difficult and long fights which end up in no result.Contracts should be signed by both parties, and what is so difficult in signing a contract online with a digital pen.
'Policies delayed are policies denied, tomorrow never comes'.

-WOW! Can't wait for this release finally is out.I had the great honor in reviewing 'Cold rays and Grey waves' CD-R 2014 (self-financed) which got a great positive feedback from the audience.Ca. one more month to go if i have to believe the band, for its final release.The layout looks quite decent,and especiallly the digipak version looks killer.Go, and check them out folks...

Review done by me for Moonspell Rites Promotions

This is a ritual you won't surive, unless you have the right papers/books to make it succesful.-lavey.With the bite of the snake a verse will be spoken by a witch, and suffer a pain and die.Your soul will exist in the underworld for you to help your friends out in bands or careers.Necrophobic (Holland/Sweden,Under license Swedish Death Squad-IT from ABRUPTUM,Opthalamia) used it with their latest record, as it was a gypsy from Hengelo/Overijssel,Holland.(R.I.P)-May your soul find eternal peace in heaven-Died way too young (12 or 14 years young of age) 

Here is the frontcover of their latest record 'Womb of Lilithu'

08-06-2015 New review online, and this time with a really legendary band.Breaking through already in 1995 with the demo ‘Mysterious Realms’ the band features well known artists from the Austrian Black  Metalscene namely Tharen (see also: Dargaard, Dominion III, Graumahd, Ex-Abigor, Ex-Heidenrich) Herr Wolf, Jorg Lanz (see also: Dominion III, Ex- Fall Time, Allerseelen, Der Blutharsch, Graumahd), and the well famous vocalist Silenius (see also: Kreuzweg Ost, Summoning, Ex-Cromm, Mirkwood (AUT), Shadow Vale, Ex-Abigor, Ex-DieVerbannten Kind Evas, Ex-Pazuzu).

Starting of with Demiurge, the first track of another masterpiece lasting 13:02, it immediately tells they still didn’t lost their skills.Brilliant epic songs with once again great atmospheres.Building quite the reputation through the years, and releasing  one brilliant record after the other, they returned again this year with another masterpiece, scoring a high rated review already of 95% out of the 100%.

Returning to the Middle Earth influences again, the rest of the record is so diverse that it can’t let you go.Great build up tracks, like we hear so much, that brings you to a great climax.What more is  to tell is that the reckonizable voice of Silenius once again sticks out with the rest of the bands who play in this sort of style.

The following track entitled ’358’....read more...

Can't believe this individual basically deserved a statue.Must have been his high intelligence build up through all the ages.A warlock, professor or whatever you want too name it.The things discovered, has been warned for that it is dangerous, and should be practiced above the age of 18+



It also seems there is some high class Lavey merchandise on the market, and just released.

-Politically incorrect(?)

Straight from the Agonia newsletter.German politician apologises DEN SAAKALDTE for false accusations.

Political member of the centre-left German party SPD, Ralf Hofman, has publicly apologized to - amongst other artists - DEN SAAKALDTE, for his false false accusations concerning band's alleged involvement in the so colled "right-wing scene", with regards to the band's appearance at the Norwegian Hellcamp in Schweinfurt this October.

The whole incident was originally and wrongly ignited by Antifa, and brought to the attention of Schweinfurt's local authorities (including Ralf Hofman), in order to ban the Norwegian Hellcamp Festival in October (more in this topic can be read in the German eiditon of Rolling Stone Magazine, here).

Eventually, after consulting credible independent sources, Mr. Hofman decided to apologize and admit that his suspicions were incorrect and drwan from unreliable authors.

His full statement:
"My call for the ban of the concert at Stadthalle on October 4th has caused some outrage in social media. At this point, I have been given access to sources and people who are competent on the subject and the bands, such as the webzine undergrounded.de.

At the core of the matter, it seems to be the case that our original source exaggerated some facts. I have to blame myself for what happened as I disregarded the central tenet of journalism to have at least two independent sources. But I am neither a journalist nor a full time politician, and doing volunteer work only, these things are not always easy.

The bands that will play on October 4th in Schweinfurt have elements of their show that can be considered tasteless / in bad taste. But the extremist background I suspected is apparently not there at all.

Thus, I withdraw the call for a ban".
In response, the members of DEN SAAKALDTE commented:

"Stop this bullshit! Our members, our lyrics and what we represent as a band has not a single thought even, being mixed with either left - centre - right political ideas....never has -never will!!
We give a SHIT for politics and LEAVE US OUT OF THIS GOD DAMN THING!".

-Moonspell Rites Promotions on Bandcamp.Buy now the 2002 'Darkest Temptations' MCD by As Stormclouds Gather http://moonspellritespromotions1.bandcamp.com

-On Sept.6th 2008  Moonspell  Rites Promotions was about to set  sail.Now on Sept.6th 2014 it will celebrate it’s 6th anniversary.

6 years of glorious and non glorious times visiting some great highlights in the Metalscene,and some really sad,less beautiful moments.One of those highlights for me personally was to to see this really die hard Underground Black Metal band from Denmark grow into nowadays one of the more well known acts in the Black Metal Underground,namely BLODARV.

Besides being a witness of this band evolving there of course was also a giant movement from the US side on,with for example seeing an old movement there being active again nowadays,namely US Black metal Sect.Hopefully (and am sure of it) more great things will be happening in the near future..’til then…Read the biography by following the next link...

-Today the Metalworld received the sad news Tristessa died of leukemia.She was a well known figure in the underground Black Metal scene with the band ASTARTE.What made this band special is that it was the first all-female band from Greece who actually made a real breakthrough in the international scene,and brought forth some excellent records.Besides that the band had a big privilege working together with all-star musicians such as Shagrath(Dimmu Borgir).Tristessa(Maria) died of the age of 37.
