After releasing ninth full-length album “landwarijaR,” Norwegian Viking metal crew Helheim now unleashes a second video from the album. Check out “Ymr” below.

Like the preceding video for “Baklengs mot intet,” new clip “Ymr” was directed by Guilherme Henriques, and this time the band concentrates on live footage from Inside Live & Rock Café bt Mathis Backe interspersed with film of some of the glorious scenery that surrounds Helheim’s home town of Bergen.

Helheim’s V’gandr explains: “With ‘Ymr’ Helheim explores the terrain that might result from the complete enlightenment of knowledge. The tree of life is the symbol of this path and you may wonder if this enlightenment is of a positive or of a negative energy. When the One with the one eye closes it, that is when we must open up ours and see what lies ahead. ‘Ymr’ is the primal scream, the essence of man and to grow from there you have to climb. Whereas ‘Baklengs mot intet’ showed no hope in its cloak of negativity, ‘Ymr’ might kindle a tiny spark – but that’s up to the eye of the beholder or should I say, the ears of the listener.”

Hells Headbangers today announces the signing of Faithxtractor, and the first fruit of this union shall be Faithxtractor’s third album, slated for release during the second half of 2017.

This third full-length album, tentatively titled “Proverbial Lambs to the Ultimate Slaughter,” is now well into the tracking process at the band’s own Frequenscream Studios. Unconcerned with scene schemes and useless labeling tags, Faithxtractor will continue down the dark path set forth on previous releases while forever moving forward into darkened territory. The prime directive: sick riffs, metal & death.

“We are honored and very pleased to have the opportunity to release our next album through Hells Headbangers,” says Ash Thomas. “Having worked with them personally on other projects, I’ve come to greatly respect their work ethic and dedication. We are extremely proud of the death metal we’ve created for album #3, and it’s very assuring to have a label such as Hell Headbangers behind the coming onslaught!”

Back in 2014, former As I Lay Dying member Tim Lambesis was sentenced to six years in prison for attempting to hire an undercover police officer to kill his wife.

Although it hasn’t been confirmed by any official sources at this point, multiple sites are reporting that Lambesis has now been released from prison.

The source for his info comes from George Lynch on Eddie Trunk’s Show from the Monsters of Rock Cruise. During the interview, Lynch discussed his religion debates with Tim Lambesis and stated Tim has been released and has a book and record label deal.

You can hear the interview segment below, and a transcript follows:

I had every freaking argument out there, and he just was able to really kind of battle every argument, ’cause he had every counter-argument prepared in his mind; he had studied so hard. And as silly as his argument was, and as much as it didn’t really hold water when you thought about it — it was all fallacious arguments — but…

Anyways, he just got out of jail for attempting to kill his wife. Now I’m not saying this as an indictment against anything. All I’m saying is, there is a guy who could argue Christianity beyond anybody I’ve ever spoken to in my life; I had these very heated debates with this guy… He had a beautiful wife; they had adopted three Cambodian children. And then he discovered cocaine, strippers, heroin and steroids. He went completely off the rails, abandoned his family, his wife threatened to divorce him, he hired an off-duty cop to kill her.

He recently got out of jail. He destroyed his band. They don’t have a pot to piss in now; they’re all struggling. [They are] a great band. I know them very well because, actually, the guitar player was my daughter’s fiancé. And, actually, the drummer [Jordan Mancino] played in another project I had ways back, Souls Of We. So, anyways, he’s out, he’s got a mega record deal, he’s got a book deal, everything’s lined up for him. I mean, he’s gonna skate through life. Everybody else is suffering. His wife is living in fear, his children are living in fear. His band doesn’t have a pot to piss in.

Following the arrest and band implosion, Tim’s former bandmates went on to form Wovenwar, and have since released two albums: a self-titled debut and 2016 sophomore output “Honor Is Dead.”
