News From Taake

I know I'm about two weeks late reporting this, but Ulvhedin Hoest, the driving force behind the Black Metal outfit Taake, has posted some news concerning his release from jail and a forthcoming album on the Taake website:
There`s been a lot of rumours and misunderstandings lately, so to make things a bit more clear: This was my 3rd incarceration for violence... All material for the next Taake album has been complete for a while and will be recorded as soon as possible.
No news as to what the new album will be called, though. At any rate, hopefully Hoest and company will be able to make it stateside soon...

Darkthrone's F.O.A.D. Leaks

hot on the heels of the leak of the N.W.B.H.M. (New Wave of Black Heavy Metal) EP, Darkthrone's forthcoming LP, entitled F.O.A.D., is now floating around the internet. The album's title is an acronym for Fuck off and Die, and according to the reactions of fans of traditional Black Metal, it continues in the punk-infused vein of The Cult is Alive. Maybe not what fans of old-school Darkthrone were hoping for.

At least the album cover is cool, right?
