Talking about Dimmu Borgir, we went to an excellent concert on Wednesday night featuring those crazy death heads. It a ton of fun!
I think my friends and I could bring down a dorm room by turning on our computers every morning if we lived in one...

From the Nuclear Blast Homepage:

Norway’s Black Metal Band No. 1, DIMMU BORGIR, outdid hundreds of competitors and got chosen to administer two songs to the trailer of the upcoming movie “Hellboy”, a comic adaptation comparable to other films like "Blade" and "The Crow". Check out for more information about the gloomy action flick and for the cool trailer.

And keep your fingers crossed that DIMMU BORGIR will also succeed in enriching the soundtrack of "Hellboy" ...

Oh yeah, I added Hollenthon: "With Vilest of Worms to Dwell." Its like Therion, but with a black/Norwegian metal influence.
Sorry about the fat post, but I couldn't do a direct link to the page, which is from the Nuclear Blast Homepage:


The writing of the long awaited sixth BAL-SAGOTH album is continuing, and the new material is sounding truly phenomenal. Fans of everything Bal-Sagoth have crafted, from the debut album to the most recent opus, will truly find the forthcoming sixth album a wondrous and enthralling voyage into the darksome realms of sinister avant-garde black/death metal! Barbaric, baroque, bombastic... BAL-SAGOTH!
The front and back cover artwork by renowned fantasy artist Martin Hanford is now complete, as are the interior booklet illustrations by both official artists Martin Hanford and Samuel Santos.
Recording is expected to begin during the depths of winter, with a release through Nuclear Blast during the spring of 2004.

Bal-Sagoth have finalized a new merchandise deal with the German company Rock Bottom ( Rock Bottom are a company 100% dedicated to METAL, so they are a fine choice to take over production of the prestigious range of Bal-Sagoth garments.
The first item produced will be a much requested Bal-Sagoth logo shirt, and will be available both as a t-shirt (with backprint) and long-sleeve (with back and sleeve-prints). Additionally, there will be a "girlie" fit style shirt, featuring an exclusive backprint.
And don't forget, the last few copies of the original award-winning range of Bal-Sagoth shirts from Razamataz (featuring exclusive Martin Hanford artwork) are going fast! Get yours now from before they're gone for good!

All who lamented the lack of a full lyrical supplement for the fourth album "The Power Cosmic" will be pleased to know that there is now a new edition of the album available which contains a full colour 12 page lyric booklet.
This new edition of the fourth album is available on CD and is sublicensed from Nuclear Blast by the Russian company Irond Ltd. (The lyrics are printed in English, and the layout was designed by webmaster Jamie which first appeared exclusively here at the official site!) Check out for more.

Work on the series of graphic novels set within the BAL-SAGOTH lyrical universe is also continuing. As an exclusive prelude to these stories, the Official Bal-Sagoth Website will soon be unveiling several pages of BAL-SAGOTH comics written by Byron and illustrated by official band artist Martin Hanford. Watch for them in a future site update!
Additionally, the first prose novella written by Byron and set within the world of the BAL-SAGOTH lyrics is nearing completion. This thrilling story will significantly expand the adventures of Caylen-Tor and his epic struggle against the armies of the sorceress Zyrashana, a tale which first appeared in the song "To Dethrone The Witch-Queen Of Mytos K'unn (The Legend Of The Battle Of Blackhelm Vale)" on the album "Starfire Burning Upon The Ice-Veiled Throne Of Ultima Thule".
Also, fans of the BAL-SAGOTH stories will be pleased to know that a totally revamped and expanded Glossary of all the characters, places, events, artifacts, etc. appearing in the tales will soon be unveiled here at the Official Website, including new information from the fifth and sixth albums.
Additionally, a new and comprehensive version of Byron's complete BAL-SAGOTH lyrics incorporating all six albums and featuring special extended editions of the fourth album's stories (TPC ver. 1.5) will be uploaded soon to co-incide with the new special edition Glossary.

BAL-SAGOTH keyboardist Jonny Maudling has recently been working as part of a team of composers creating music for a new MMORPG (Massive Multi-Player Online Role Playing Game) called Adellion. Visit the official Adellion site for more info on this epic fantasy game:

From the Dragonforce website:

New Album
London based extreme power metallers DragonForce have started work on the follow up to their debut album 'Valley Of The Damned' released earlier this year.

The majority of the recording is taking place at Thin Ice Studios, Virginia Water, Surrey, England with producer Karl Groom, while all the guitars are being recorded at Herman Li's own private studio in West London.
Herman Li (guitars), Z.P. Theart (vocals), Sam Totman (guitars), & Vadim Pruzhanov (keyboards) have now been joined by new bassist Adrian Lambert, and drummer David Mackintosh (also with Bal-Sagoth).

Said guitarist Herman Li "We are working hard every day in the studio, and I can tell you that the new album will exceed the boundaries of melodic, speed power metal"

The new, as yet untitled album will be released on the Noise Records label on March 22nd 2004.

In the mean time, two candidates for the Store Manager position at my branch have been interviewed and rejected. Employees are calling in sick left and right and the healthy ones are using their vacation days. My staff is currently only 8, including myself. This holiday season...people will die from 1000 wounds.

Please Teacher Vol.4 is in my greedy little hands...

Unfortunately due to a way busy weekend with visiting family and a cousin's birthday I was unable to see Martix - Revolutions this weekend. I have heard good bad and really ugly about this film so far, but I am keeping my mind open. I bought disk 1 of a new Anime series I haven't tried before so I'll have a review up for that once it has arrived.

Other then that, don't let Monday get you down.

Sign the Petition, put your name down for having the Original StarWars Trilogy on DVD. As of right now George Lucas is planning on only releasing the 'Special Editions'. Whether or not this petition will help is a completely different matter. Lucas is and always will be a Law Unto Himself. But it definitely can't hurt. - Dedicated to the preservation of classic sci-fi

Woo-hoo!!! I knew you'd like 'Phone Booth!' No one else would have worked as well as the voice over the telephone.
I have posted reviews for 3 anime's in the Movie Reviews page:

  • Full Metal Panic

  • The Slayers: Collection 1

  • The Iron Giant (Warner Bros)

I will not post a review on 'Phone Booth' but I saw that this week and did enjoy it thoroughly.
Hails to you all! I've posted part II of my not-so-short-story "When Worlds Collide" on my homepage. Kill it and grill it...all input welcomed. Have a good weekend!
