- RED STREAM.
The label will release the debut from the obscure and
cryptic band HIDDEN in Winter 2001. While expanding upon ancient Black
Metal themes, the band brings the spirit of Black Metal into a new dimension
of both ideology and sound. But be warned, HIDDEN is not some silly
experimental perversion of Black Metal, but rather it unifies the old
cult with its own vision of infinite cold. Out of total disgust for
today's "scene", HIDDEN does not want their origin or any personal band
information revealed. At RED STREAM's request, they have agreed to answer
select interviews to the best of their ability.

Fall of 2001 as a double CD!

- ON BEHALF OF CHUCK SCHULDINER
Two years ago this month, on his 31st birthday, Chuck Schuldiner, founder
of Death & Control Denied and forefather to an entire movement in Heavy
Metal, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour. For the past two
years, Chuck has fought for his life, family and passion for music.
Fans worldwide voiced their concern and support and when possible tried
to send donations to the Schuldiner's medical fund to assist in the
payment of Chuck's care. Hammerheart and the entire Schuldiner family
are greatly appreciative for the continued generosity and enthusiasm,
however at this time have additional news to share with the musical
At this very moment it is necessary for Chuck to have a very specific
and immediate surgical treatment which is being denied to him based
on a lack of funds. Chuck needs immediate surgery; in fact he is at
home in Florida awaiting the opportunity for a very delicate operation
that his doctors adamantly insist is crucial for his recovery. After
having exhausted every possible avenue, Chuck's family and friends are
reaching out to ask for your assistance.
Did you know that unless you already have one foot inside death's door
that many US government assistance programs are not available to you?
Did you know that in certain states a pre-existing medical condition
can keep you from obtaining any medical insurance whatsoever, leaving
all medical expenses in the lap of the sick and their families? Do you
know how many people die of cancer every year because there is not enough
help or awareness provided to them?
Chuck Schuldiner is no faceless stranger to any us. He has inspired
more bands than anyone could ever count. He has afforded a lot of us
with the opportunity to do what we love for a living. He has changed

LAST EPISODE NEWSLETTER:
- AD INFERNA is a new signing on LAST EPISODE. The French band is into
symphonic Black Metal and will be recording their debut album in the
Excess Studios (Sinister a.o.) in the Netherlands. The first part of
the trilogy will be called "BLIND DEPTHS OF THE MUSE".
- THE DREAMSIDE's wave gothic metal finds its uniqueness in the enchanting
voice of Italian-Dutch singer Kemi Vita. So far, the band has released
the two albums "Pale Blue Lights" (1995) and "Apaika" (1997) as well
as the MCD "Nuda Veritas" (1996) through Nuclear Blast. In the meantime
the band has won with Roman Schoensee an estimable musician and songwriter.
The former base player of Pyogenesis has been around with his own project
THE BLOODLINE as well as a songwriter for Silke Bischoff. "MIRROR MOON"
is the title of THE DREAMSIDE's new album. The concept of the music
is very catchy, the songs are a mixture between dynamic gothic metal
and shallow electronic dark wave. The album will be released 21st May
2001, Theatre of Tragedy fans will have their day! THE DREAMSIDE will
be at the Wave Gothic festival in summer!
- MEPHISTOPHELES will be in the Soundloge Studio in Oldenburg, Germany
(Obscenity and others) starting 30th of March in order to record their
third album called "MODERN INSTINCT'S PURITY". The band has already
a ready concept of 7 songs consisting of typical MEPHISTOFELES sound
but also a few new aspects. The basic trend of the music has been established
darker in order to create a sinister and more aggressive atmosphere.
Besides building on their black metal roots they have also helped themselves
with death metal influences without neglecting their roots. The songs
are still between 6 and 8 minutes long, a fact that gives time for epic
and raw moments and choral music. The new singer Eike C. Kröger joined
the band right after the album "Songs of the Desolate Ones" had been
released and from then on leaded the band on all live gigs (for example
the Wave Gothic festival). Here's an idea of a few song titles: "Killing
Conscious", "(Galaxia) An Empire Beneath The Sun", "First Death Introdus",
"Bastard Blood's Prosperity", "My Enemy Divine", "Conquer Self", "Destruction",
- Austrian symphonic black metal band AMORTIS will also be in the studio
starting May in order to record the predecessor of the great album "Summoned
By Astral Fires". They plan on recording between six and eight songs
with the usual length far beyond six minutes. A few song titles will
probably be "The Human Puzzle", "Messiah", "19th Century Love Poetry"
and "The Obscure Dance Of Distress". The new material contains more
technical riffs, death metal and industrial elements, has a good portion
of aggressiveness and is supposed to be more compatible for live gigs.
Last but not least the style of "Summoned By Astral Fires" will be improved
and transmitted. Release date of the album approximately September 2001.
- SACRIVERSUM have already released two outstanding gothic metal long-players
with the debut album "SOTERIA" and last year's album "BECKETTIA". Now
they are planning on re-releasing their convincing 8 track demo "The
Shadow Of The Golden Fire" from 1994. The material has been completely
re-mastered and the re-release will also contain 4 songs of the very
first "Dreams of Destiny" tapes. SACRIVERSUM then was more into melodic
death metal even though their predilection for gothic metal can already
- GARDENS OF GEHENNA so to say officially opened their own "Anthrazit-studio"
with the pre-production of their new album. Mastermind Bruno Kramm from
"Das Ich" will complete the material then in the "Danse Macabre" studio
in summer. The new album "THE MECHANISM MASOCHISM" will consequently
pursue the musical roots of the latest album "Dead Body Music": a metallic
sound goes hand in hand with electronic coldness.
- The "riders of the apocalypse", briefly AEBA, will start working on
a new album called "REBELLION-EDENS ASCHE" in March. The new material
has become faster without neglecting the dark and melodic side of AEBA.
The album will have a playing time of over an hour. Here are a few songs
titles: "Sacred Angel Demon", "Flammenherz", "Rebellion - Des Zornes
Banner", "Spiritual Evolution", "Dominion of Terror". Release date of
the third album of the black metallians from Kiel/Germany is 18th of
- For everyone outside of Germany who has received the QUA VADIS album

THE SIGN OF THE HAMMER
- The official newsletter of HAMMERHEART RECORDS (March/April 2001)
- AETERNUS is currently mixing their new album "ASCENTION OF TERROR"
in Grieghallen with their producer Pytten. As the song "Burning the
Shroud" proves we can only await another masterpiece of this unique
band. Dark Metal will rise!
- ALAS (with Erik Rutan of Morbid Angel & Hate Eternal on guitars!)
has finished all the pieces for their debut-album "ABSOLUTE PURITY VOL.
I". The last remaining part will be the cover-artwork that needs to
be 200% fitting, since this album is about to set new standards in the
fields of Metal with female vocals.
- ANCIENT RITES has finished their new album "DIM CARCOSA" and we feel
this will be their break-through, such a massive album filled with "hit"
songs. The ultimate combination of Black, Death and Heavy Metal with
- CRUACHAN has surprised us a lot, because their album is co-produced
by Shane MacGowan (of The Pogues). The single "Ride-on" even features
Shane on a few vocal lines!!! The full album "FOLK-LORE" can be expected
in August with a big progress in music and sound.
- DIABOLIC has their second attack of blasphemous US-Death Metal called
"SUBTERRAINEAL MAGNITUDE" ready for attack. Fans of high quality Tampa
Death Metal will not be disappointed!!! Other bands watch out, Diabolic
will claim the throne!!!
- DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER are struck by bad luck, guitarist Eumel
was struck by an injury on his hand (similar to Demonaz of Immortal).
Don't worry, during the summer they will bring "madness" to all of you
- DISMEMBER are part of our label now as well and seem to hit the studio
- EXMORTEM served us with an advance-copy of their album "BERZERKER
LEGIONS" and we could not allow this album to be overlooked, so in May
it is coming. Death Metal that is fast, furious and intense. Reminds
us a bit of Hate Eternal.
- MACABRE will re-release their legendary "GLOOM" re-mastered and with
exclusive bonus songs during this Summer. This is what we all have been
waiting for. Check them out at Dynamo!
- MONSTROSITY will stay with us in Europe and in August we will present
you a double-CD called "ENSLAVING THE MASSES" which will feature a live-CD
and a CD with obscure tracks from demos, 7"'s etc. Value for money,
and 100% Death Metal!
- MORIFADE have made it happen. Power Metal on Hammerheart Records.
They will record during this Summer under the watching eye of Andy LaRoque.
- PRIMORDIAL re-releases "IMRAMA" and "A JOURNEY'S END" with original
design and re-mastered. After the immense success of "Spirit the Earth
Aflame" we felt it was time to justify these older albums. New album
in Autumn 2001!
- REBAELLIUN will once and for all prove their position as top Death
Metal act with the upcoming "ANNIHILATION" album. Recorded by Andy Classen
in Stage One Studio (Krisiun, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter) and simply
justifying the album-title in full. Those lead guitars... aaaarrrghh!
- SATARIEL is ready to record and have chosen Daniel Bergstrand as producer
in Studio Underground (this combination brought us Darkane's "RUSTED
- SEVERE TORTURE goes USA! In April they will cross the "big water"
and show those Americans that Dutch Death Metal simply rules. Enough
- SINISTER will prepare themselves after they come back from the April-tour
to finally record "CREATIVE KILLINGS" and we feel it can only be a highlight!
- SUNSETH SPHERE is a new act from Hungary that recorded an album in
their home-country. The album was excellent, thus we decided to re-mix
and re-master it at RS-29 (a.o. Aeyreon, Within Temptation). The style
is very melodic, atmospheric Metal with female vocals.
- THRONEAEON has finished the album "NEITHER OF GODS". Swedish Death
Metal with a touch of US Death Metal, very well executed and recorded
in Studio Underground to make sure the sound is brilliant!
- MÖRK GRYNING has returned! Until this day, MÖRK GRYNING has always
had a low-priority status, due to the member's obligations to other
bands. Times have changed though and to the forthcoming album "MAELSTROM
CHAOS", they have decided to give MÖRK GRYNING full priority and turn
the project into a band. Musically the new album has a rather melodic
touch, more similar to that of the debut "Tusen ar har gatt…" then of
the second, "Return fire". The songs should however be described as
more symphonic and worked through and titles such as "Templars", "The
darkness within", "Dödens skald" (the scald of death) and "The menace"
should wipe out any doubt anyone might have towards MÖRK GRYNING and
their creativity, due to the long wait (3 years) since the latest release,
"Return fire". A new fresh element into the band is the new lead guitarist
Avatar. His virtuous playing has brought MÖRK GRYNING a higher level
of skill, quite unique for Black Metal bands. The album is scheduled
to be released in late spring on No Fashion Records. Watch out and BEWARE!!!!!!!

with well-known producer Andy Classen (a.o. Rotting Christ, Krisiun

forward and aggressive but it still features the typical Callenish Circle
trademarks, known from the previous releases. So expect the ultimate
Thrash Attack!!! Besides the band's going to record 2 very special cover-tracks
(one even from a non-metal act, which will definitely surprise you all).
After the release of the new album (late 2001) C.C. are planning to
get on a European support-tour. Callenish Circle is still looking for
serious record-labels to license "GRACEFUL YET FORBIDDING" in South
East Asia/Japan and North/South America exclusively. For more information

album. Besides all recordings are digitally re-mastered and they have
plenty bonus-tracks available for your release.
