  • Blabbermouth reports California hardcore/metal outfit BLEEDING THROUGH was involved in a road accident on the way to the final show of the band's U.S. tour with WINDS OF PLAGUE, OCEANO, GIDEON, and SWORN IN.  Says BLEEDING THROUGH in a posting on the band's Facebook page: "Well, boys and girls, this happened again. Good news is no one is hurt and other than a totaled trailer we are fine. We loaded all the gear in the van and are trying to make it to Albuquerque [for the November 23 concert]."  BLEEDING THROUGH plans to hit South America in early 2014 and will conclude its career with a string of West Coast shows.  In a statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET, BLEEDING THROUGH frontman Brandan Schieppati said about the group's decision to disband: "We have been a band since 1999, and many of us just had life catch up with us in the way of marriages, kids, businesses and other endeavors. We can no longer dedicate what we need to to keep BLEEDING THROUGH going.  "Personally, I feel doing this band in a part-time fashion is not what this band is about and and feel like we have always been an all-or-nothing band. With that being said, and because we have established a worldwide following over the last 14 years, we want to give us and those people one more chance to share in this music together."  BLEEDING THROUGH's latest album, "The Great Fire", was released on January 31, 2012 via Rise Records.  Read more at Loudwire
 
  • Blabbermouth reports Dutch folk metallers HEIDEVOLK have announced the addition of vocalist Lars (alias Bláhrafn) to the group's ranks.  Says the band: "Skilled in both the higher and lower vocal regions, we think Lars is an addition as well as an extension to the HEIDEVOLK sound.  "Having already rehearsed with Lars in the HEIDEVOLK rehearsal caves, it is safe to say that the vocal combination of Mark and Lars will blow you away!  "Now, after six months, our lineup is complete again and we feel refueled and ready to take on our next challenge: a new album, tentatively scheduled for mid-2014. Along with that, expect us to explore and invade familiar and new territories and clubs for a full force HEIDEVOLK live attack!"  Adds Lars: "I'm happy and honored to be among the ranks of HEIDEVOLK. Being both a listener and admirer of their music, I was thrilled to hear that they chose me.  "I can't wait to be on stage and in the studio with the band. Furthermore: I don't consider myself to be an exact replacement for Joris, but I hope to be a worthy successor as vocalist of HEIDEVOLK."  HEIDEVOLK's fourth album, "Batavi", was released in March 2012 through Napalm Records.
 
  • Blabbermouth reports German power metallers LANFEAR will enter the studio on January 17, 2014 to begin recording their seventh album. The drums for the follow-up to 2012's "This Harmonic Consonance" will be recorded at Dreamsound Studios in Munich with engineer Jan Vacik. After that, the guitars, keyboards and bass will be tracked in the band's home studios.  Regarding the sound of the new LANFEAR material, the group states: "The new tracks are, of course, melodic, powerful, heavy, catchy, sophisticated, commercial, fast, slow and thrashy and we reinvented the wheel with these tracks. You know that phrase-mongering, don't you?"  "This Harmonic Consonance" was released in February 2012 via Pure Steel Records. The group previously described the effort as "the heaviest LANFEAR album until now. [It contains] some pretty fast tracks but also the very first doom song in our history! The end result will blow your heads off! You can definitely achieve a natural and authentic production without sounding as if the recording sessions were held in a garbage can!"  LANFEAR's fifth album, "X to the Power of Ten", came out in August 2008 via Locomotive Records.
