Cradle Of Filth Singer Forms New Band, Temple Of The Black Moon

A new band has been formed which features members from some of the biggest names in metal. The new group, named Temple Of The Black Moon, is fronted by Cradle Of Filth singer Dani Filth and also includes in it’s ranks Anthrax/The Damned Things guitarist Rob Caggiano, bass player King Ov Hell (Ov Hell/Sahg/former Gorogoroth) and drummer John Tempesta, who has worked with a variety of bands including White/Rob Zombie, Exodus, Testament and The Cult, of whom is he is still a member. The band describe their sound as “a cauldron bubbling over with the unsavory flavors of Tool and Celtic Frost, and seasoned with the likes of Immortal and At The Gates.”

Speaking about the name, Dani Filth commented: “We had an innumerable amount of names that never seemed likely to stick, that was until we put our proverbial heads together and narrowed it down to just three or four, and then tossed for it (proverbially of course) using a silver Norwegian crown (we couldn’t find any proper money). The name Temple Of The Black Moon represents the rigorous worship of desire, (the black moon astrologically has always held association with the dark Goddess Lilith) and of course the ramifications of the lunar eclipse, always a herald for death and ill-omen.”

The band has recorded almost an album’s worth of material and is planning to record the songs in Bergen, Norway for a full-length album, which is expected to be released in the summer of next year.

Song titles thus far include “Infernal Desire Machine,” “Don’t Call Up What You Can’t Put Down,” “Dark Eyes For Trouble,” “Beautifully Perverse,” and “C.N.T (All That’s Missing Is You).”

Weird Anxiety Working On New Album "The Plot Thickens"

After releasing an EP as a free download back in March, Himalayan black metallers Weird Anxiety have started working on their new album. The new album, titled “The Plot Thickens,” has the following track listing:

1. An Odyssey In Remorse
2. Mama, Don’t Let Me Drown Away
3. Sorrows On The Wind
4. Flower In Lapel
5. A Sonnet In The Airs Of Suffocation
6. The Lonely Daffodil

The band has announced the album will take a different direction, with the song “Mama, Don’t Let Me Drown Away” being completely acoustic. Guitarist Hitesh commented, “This album comes in continuation with our previous album ‘Act I Scene I’ and signifies the flow of events not only in our lives but also in our music. The name itself signifies a change in events, musically it shall portray a different side of Weird Anxiety and a very integral one. The last album was heavier, contrary to that a lot of acoustic material shall find place in this album. The heavier songs are more heavy, have more punch and for sure there shall be some surprising material in the vocals. Yes, we shall be going clean in some of our songs but the suspense doesn’t die over here. All in all it would be a full length album not just in context with the playing time but also in terms of quality material.

“Now coming onto the cover, we wanted something obscured and dark. The particular sketch was a go-go on the first sight as it met our every expectation. The sketch signifies more of a journey, in this context our musical versatility.”

The title and the specific song & poem that carries its name is very significant to what this album reveals and deals with, and if you read and listen to it carefully and close to heart; all answers shall come.”

“The World. The Flesh. The Devil” is due out on Metal Blade Records on May 24th, and the track listing for the album is as follows:

1. The World, The Flesh, The Devil

Harakiri Auditioning Singers

HARAKIRI has begun auditioning replacements for
singer Matt Reese, who left the band in January. The group has
issued the following update:

“The search for a new vocalist is on. We’ve started the audition
process. We have some good candidates for sure. We’re hoping to
wrap this up fairly soon so if anyone out there, who hasn’t
contacted us already, is still interested in trying out get with us
asap. Or if you inquired about it but we didn’t get back to you,
message us again. Things were getting hectic there for a second and
I am afraid some emails may have been missed.

We are steadily progressing on the writing of the songs for the new
album (musically that is). We pretty much finished up another new
one yesterday. We’re anxious to get all this done and hit the
studio and play some shows.

Anyway, we’re alive and trying to push this forward as fast as we
can. Once a vocalist is decided upon we’ll throw up a demo track
probably.”
