Rise Of The Northstar Recording New Album Gojira’s Joe Duplantier

Crossover metallers Rise Of The Northstar are currently hard at work recording the follow-up to their hit debut ‘Welcame’. The band travelled all the way to New York and entered the Silver Cord Studio to record with Gojira’s very own Joe Duplantier.

Commented the band: “If touring in Japan was always our goal, making an album in New York, one of the most influential cities in the world, with Joe Duplantier producing, is one big challenge.
We’re here to enhance our blend of metal and rap and to take it to the next level. Each corner of this town is a visual mirror of the thickness of our sound. We’re gonna soak in Brooklyn and sweat it back out on record.”

Added Duplantier: “I’m excited to contribute to this album. Rise Of The Northstar is badass. Their approach of music is so direct, and they drive their career the same way. Definitely a great experience for me.”

Co-Founder Kay Backlund Returns For New Lion’s Share Single “The Lion’s Trial”

Swedish heavy metal band Lion’s Share has been rejoined by co-founder and original keyboardist Kay Backlund for its latest single, “The Lion’s Trial.” The track is the follow-up to “Another Desire”, which was released in June and marked the group’s first new music since 2009’s “Dark Hours” album. Check out both songs in the players at the bottom.

“I’ve been working with Kay on a couple of albums I’ve produced the last couple of years, so when we needed keyboards on ‘The Lion’s Trial’, he was the natural choice,” Lion’s Share guitarist Lars Chriss says. “I’m sure it’s pretty cool for our fans as well that we have three-fifths of the debut album lineup together again on this track.”

More than twenty new Lion’s Share songs have been written and about half of them have been partially recorded, with original member Andy Loos handling the bass duties on the first batch of tracks. The plan is to release a couple of lyric videos — one at a time — a few months apart, and to take it from there, depending on the response from fans.

Lead singer Nils Patrik Johansson (ex-Civil War) says: “Lars and I agree that at this point it feels the most natural to keep Lion’s Share as a duo, with friends helping out wherever needed.”

Enepsigos Signs Record Deal With Osmose Productions

With debut full-length album “Plague of Plagues” released at the beginning of the year on Drakkar Productions, and with work progressing steadily on the follow-up album, black metal crew Enepsigos has now inked a deal with Osmose Productions.

The band was formed in the summer of 2016 by V.I.T.H.R, otherwise known as Doedsadmiral, the founder and frontman of Nordjevel, Svartelder, and Doedsvangr. For this project, V.I.T.H.R has called on the services of former Sarkom guitarist Straff and drummer Thorns (Blut Aus Nord, Fides Inversa, Frostmoon Eclipse).

Commenting on the decision to sign with Osmose, V.I.T.H.R had this to say: “It was a natural progression to a bigger label who could take us further along the road. I already knew how Osmose worked, because Nordjevel is signed with them, and it has been a close collaboration, with everyone having an input and exchanging ideas. It’s a very productive way to work as far as I’m concerned.”
