Hamburg, Germany based avant-garde metal act Todtgelichter (which was covered in our look at non-traditional black metal ) is currently looking for a new guitar player due to the imminent departure of longtime member Claudio. The band comments: “With a dedicated new guitar player we aim to strengthen our live presence in 2014 and to start the composing process for album number 5. “We are searching for YOU: you are no rookie, you have a sense for melodies and songwriting, you play tight, groovy and in time and (ideally) are familiar with the songs of our last two albums ‘Angst’ and ‘Apnoe.’ Furthermore, you are able to rehearse twice a week in Hamburg/Hamm; you like rehearsing as much as playing live and you are always looking to improve your playing and to broaden your musical horizon.

Cult Swedish black/death metal act NECROPHOBIC will release its seventh full-length album, “Womb Of Lilithu”, on October 29 (four days earlier in Europe) via Season Of Mist. A digital single featuring the new song “Splendour Nigri Solis”, taken from the forthcoming CD, was released exclusively through Spotify on August 19 (September 3 in North America).

“Womb Of Lilithu” track listing:

01. Womb Of Lilithu
02. Splendour Nigri Solis
03. Astaroth
04. Furfur
05. Black Night Raven
06. The Necromancer
07. Marquis Phenex
08. Asmodee
09. Marchosias
10. Matanbuchus
11. Paimon
12. Opium Black
13. Infinite Infernalis
14. Amdusias

The official lyric video for the song “Furfur” can be seen below.

A Swedish appeals court last week reduced the prison sentence for NECROPHOBIC vocalist Tobias Sidegård, who was accused of beating his wife multiple times between September 2011 and April 2013.

Sidegård was originally sentenced to 18 months in prison for “gross violation of a woman’s integrity,” and offense that was first introduced into the Penal Code in 1998 dealing with repeated punishable acts directed by men against women who have or have had a close relationship with the perpetrator.

On September 20, the Svea appeals court found Sidegård guilty of simple assault — a less serious offense than “gross violation of a woman’s integrity” — and reduced his prison sentence to six months. The musician was also ordered to pay his wife 16,000 Swedish kronor (approximately $2,500) in damages plus interest.

Sidegård previously denied all charges through his attorney, claiming that the injuries suffered by Tobias‘ wife that were described in the indictment occurred in “other ways” than through physical abuse perpetrated by the musician.

Tobias sent an e-mail to the Metal Insider and MetalSucks web sites earier in the month insisting that he was “set free after second appeal in higher court.” “I’ve been fucking innocently accused and never hit a woman in my life,” he wrote.

The other members of NECROPHOBIC released a statement three weeks ago in which they declined to comment on the allegations against their singer — pointing out that the legal process was still “ongoing” — but stressed that they did “not condone domestic violence.”

In 2011, NECROPHOBIC was joined by guitarists Robert Sennebäck (DISMEMBER, UNLEASHED) and Fredrik Folkare (UNLEASHED).

The band’s current lineup is as follows:

Joakim Sterner – Drums
Tobias Sidegård – Vocals
Alexander Friberg – Bass
Robert Sennebäck – Guitar
Fredrik Folkare – Guitar

NECROPHOBIC supported MORBID ANGEL on a European tour in November/December 2011.

NECROPHOBIC‘s latest album, “Death To All”, was released in Europe in May 2009 via Regain Records.
