Rough Mix Of New Song “Hello From The Gutters” Issued By Deranged

Swedish brutal death metal act Deranged released a clip featuring a rough mix of the new song “Hello From the Gutters.” The song will be featured on the upcoming new album “Struck By a Murderous Siege,” which is due out on October 28th via Agonia Records.

While full album details will be revealed over the next weeks, drummer & founder Rikard Wermen issued the following update on Deranged’s current proceedings:

“We´re right now caught in good ol’ Berno Studio located in our hometown Malmö, working on the new full length (titled “Struck by a murderous siege”) and things are going rather smooth. Mean, we record the way we’ve done the last 20+ years. We go in and just fucking play. That’s it! Not trying to overproduce anything. We want our shit to sound alive and (in)human. Eight songs of adrenalin and filth soaked death metal straight from the sewers of a cruel and malicious world.
To sum the whole thing up…

Rikard Wermén (drums): Who are you?
Berno Paulsson (producer): I am Berno.
Rikard Wermén: Have you come for me?
Berno Paulsson: I have long walked by your side.
Rikard Wermén: So I have noticed.
Berno Paulsson: Are you ready?
Rikard Wermén: My body is ready, but I am not.”

New Vocalist Vlasis Katsaounis Returns To Fallen Arise

Greek symphonic/gothic metal act Fallen Arise has announced the return of Vlasis Katsaounis as the band’s new male vocalist.

The announcement reads: “Dear friends, we are proud to announce that Vlassis K. is our new singer for all male voices, he was also with us back in 2012! Welcome back Vlasis Katsaounis!”

Fallen Arise was formed in 2009 and released the second full length album “Adeline” in October 2015 via Rock Of Angels Records (aka ROAR). It combines theatrical atmosphere with a progressive approach and a heavy-metal-like heaviness. The album takes us back in time of the Victorian era of the 19th century (1837-1901), presenting us the decay of the human body and mind through fiction.

Architects Guitarist Tom Searle Passes Away

British metalcore band Architects has announced that, after a three year battle with cancer, guitarist and keyboard player Tom Searle has passed away at the age of 28. His brother Dan, the band’s drummer, has posted a message online via the group’s Facebook page:

“It is with unbelievable pain and sadness that I have to announce that at around twelve minutes past midnight on August 20th my amazing brother, Tom, passed away after over 3 years living with cancer.

“He was an incredible songwriter and guitarist. He was my closest and oldest friend. He was a funny, intelligent and sweet man and he leaves an enormous void in all of our lives.

“Many of you will be aware that Tom has been absent from various shows over the past 15 months and I can now let you know that this was due to various surgeries that he had to have to treat the cancer. When we left for our European Festival tour on June 2nd Tom was very unwell. He had been advised to stay in hospital to receive care but ultimately there was nothing that they could do for him and he signed himself out of the ward two days before we departed for Germany. Some of you might view this as reckless but this is the way Tom wanted to do things throughout his last year because he never wanted the cancer to get in the way of what he loved. He got on stage and performed his last two shows at Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park, which took him an incredible amount of strength but those are two shows that we will never forget.

“We had to cancel our European festival tour and US headline tour because on June 8th, in Luxembourg, Tom was extremely sick, we called an ambulance and he was taken into ICU. The following day he was placed into a medically induced coma and the doctors told us that it was unlikely that they’d ever be able to wake him. Five days later, against all the odds, he was awake again, and in a few short days following that, myself and Tom cancelled the air ambulance that was due to take him home and we got the Eurostar train home. Classic Tom Searle.

“He spent the last 2 months of his life fighting with everything he had to overcome the disease once and for all, and things appeared to be moving in the right direction, but in the last 2 weeks it suddenly took a turn for the worse and finally he left us.

“I don’t know what will become of Architects. Me and Tom started playing in a band together when we were 13 and, really, Architects is just an evolution of the band that we started all the way back then, over half my life ago. To pretend that Tom wasn’t at the heart of everything that the band created would be to show a complete lack of respect to the amazing talent that he was. The band will never be the same and there is simply no denying it.

“We will 100% tour All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us, there is no doubt about that. We will be going to Australia in a few weeks and we will be doing our UK and European headline tour in October and November. We hope that these shows will be an opportunity for everyone out there to show their respects to my wonderful brother. It won’t be easy for us to get on stage and play every night without him, but its something that we must do.

“We want to carry on, that is important to say, and we will strive to do so, but we will not release any music unless we truly believe that it is something that Tom would have been proud of. Whether or not we can achieve that is something that we will have to discover in time.

“The Martlets Hospice in Hove took unbelievable care of Tom in his final days. We were constantly blown away by their compassion and hard work and we feel hugely indebted to them for ensuring that we were able to make some amazing memories with Tom before he passed away. If you feel as though you’d like to contribute a donation to the Hospice in Tom’s memory then please donate on the Just Giving page that we have set up below.
https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/thomassearle

“For now we need to begin to process what has happened. Myself, Sam, Ali and Adam will need time to fully come to terms with the loss of our brother and we hope that everyone out there will continue to respect our privacy during this terribly difficult time.

“Much love,

“Dan x”
