U.K. black metallers HECATE ENTHRONED have inked a deal with Crank Music Group for the release of their upcoming album. The long-awaited follow-up to 2004’s “Redimus” is tentatively due at the end of November. A short U.K. tour to promote the upcoming opus will kick off at the beginning of December.

HECATE ENTHRONED recently announced the addition of vocalist Elliot Beaver (AETERNUM) and drummer Gareth Hardy to the group’s ranks. The band states: “This heralds a new start as well as a new lineup for the band.”

HECATE ENTHRONED bassist, Dylan Hughes previously stated about the band’s upcoming CD: “The new material is very much guitar-driven, lots of heavy and fast riffs (tuned to C#), giving a relentless feeling to the tracks which we have tempered with a big orchestral sound. The choirs and orchestras have always been a big part of the sound with HECATE and that is very true with this material. In some parts, it recaptures some of the moods from the very early releases. Because of the fact we are recording ourselves, we aren’t pressured too much by time constraints and can spend more time on getting the right sound and mix as we feel in the past we have had to sacrifice certain things to reach a recording deadline.”

On tonight’s show, we’ll be talking to Clown from Slipknot about directing his debut feature in Hollywood with the men behind the Crank movies to realise their vision of the acclaimed and controversial graphic novel Officer Downe.

He tells us how the project came to life, why he never takes holidays, how the right production team is like a great band, how you adapt a graphic novel for the big screen, how dismemberment and ultra-violence can be fun and why he’s never scared.

Tune in tonight from 9pm-midnight on TeamRock Radio!

Here’s what happened when we caught up with Clown at this year’s Download Festival…

Katatonia has posted a new lyric video online for the song “Dead Letters,” which comes off the upcoming new album “Dead End Kings.” Check out the clip below. Katatonia commented:

“We’re proud to present to you the first glimpse into the world we’ve been living in for the last half a year. Instead of giving you just a snippet of audio, we decided to give you a ‘lyric video’ for a FULL song also showcasing some of the exquisite artwork to be found inside the album.

“We hope you will enjoy one of many diverse and differerent sides found on Dead End Kings by starting off with ‘Dead Letters’, one the most heavy and proggressive songs to be found on the album and certainly a new live classic. Crank it a couple (or hundred) of times and then let us know what you think!”

“Dead End Kings” is due for release via Peaceville Records on August 27th (EU) and August 28th (US). Pre-orders are available here. To find more info on the album, you can also read our recent interview with the band from the recording studio at this location.
