INSOMNIUM & SWALLOW THE SUN FIRST US TOUR DRAWS NEAR Philadelphia:  Finland’s Insomnium and Swallow the Sun are mere days from the start of their first American tour alongside Sweden’s Katatonia and Scar Symmetry for the anticipated all-European “Live Consternation” tour set to kick off at Jaxx Nite Club in West Springfield, Virginia.  Both bands are enjoying growing American audiences and are excited to meet with their American fan base. GUEST LIST SPOTS ARE STILL AVAILABLE. Reply with requests. Insomnium are expected to perform selections from their current/third album Above the Weeping World. “This is by far the best Insomnium album”, says vocalist/bassist Niilo Sevänen. “It is the first time we feel we really succeeded in the studio. As a band we are very happy with the end result.” Formed in 1997, Insomnium recorded two demos before signing with Candlelight Records. Kerrang says, “Insomnium have grown into something truly remarkable.” Hope is the third album from rising doom/death band Swallow the Sun. Featuring a guest appearance by Katatonia vocalist Jonas Renske the album charted in the band’s home country of Finland upon its release. The tour comes as the band’s profile is rising internationally. Digital Metal says, “Swallow the Sun have to be considered on of the genre’s top newcomers… highly, highly recommended.” Insomnium, Swallow The Sun, Katatonia, Scar Symmetry 09/04/07 Jaxx Nite Club – West Springfield VA 09/06/07 BB King Blues Club – New York NY 09/07/07 Mark’s Showplace – Bedford NH 09/08/07 Chance Theater – Poughkeepsie NY 09/09/07 Le Medley – Montreal QU 09/10/07 Imperial de Quebec – Quebec City QU 09/11/07 The Funhaus – Toronto ON 09/12/07 Peabody’s – Cleveland OH 09/13/07 I-Rock – Detroit MI 09/14/07 The Pearl Room – Mokena IL 09/15/07 Station 4 – St. Paul MN 09/17/07 Bluebird Theater – Denver CO 09/19/07 Whiskey-A-Go-Go – West Hollywood CA 09/20/07 Showcase Theater – Corona CA 09/21/07 Brickhouse – Phoenix AZ 09/22/07 Launchpad – Albuquerque NM 09/24/07 White Rabbit – San Antonio TX 09/25/07 Ridglea Theater – Ft.

Now, Something you’ve been waiting for…

Another fine clip from Episode 13 of Fat Robot Radio that never aired. Why? It wasn’t any good, and I know what you are thinking. What the hell do you have to compare it with when all the other 29 Episodes of that Podcast sucked too. I don’t have any of those answers. Nor would I care if I did have any answers. So enjoy, this is clip two, which features the one and only Dave Jobless (Benson). Check out his myspace page at FRR on MYspace . Enjoy.

Special Treat for all you FRR Fans

Here is a special treat for all two of you Fat Robot Radio fans out there, a clip from the missing episode NUMBER 13. I’ve been able to obtain these in a trade from Steve Jiff who was in possession of the entire episode. We made a deal, he would get a writing credit on all the Episodes of MORNING SHENANIGANS Cartoon and I would get these clips. Fair deal I think, mostly since the Cartoon will never see the light of day. Sucker. So enjoy this one, I have two more that I am going to post this week. Listening to these almost makes me glad I was gone. Lost Episode - Clip One [ 2:59 ] Play Now | Play in Popup |...

DARK FUNERAL TO RELEASE FIRST OF TWO DVDS ON OCTOBER 15   TRENTON , N.J. – Black metal legends Dark Funeral will release their first-ever DVD set, “Attera Orbis Terrarum – Part 1,” on October 15 through Regain Records.   The two-disc set consists of three complete, professionally-filmed live shows and rare bonus footage.  The first show was filmed with seven cameras o March 12, 2005 in Katowic , Poland .  The second was filmed the following March in Tilburg , The Netherlands with four cameras.  The second disc starts off with a camera-shot show from March 2006 in Paris , followed by the video clip for “Atrum Regina” and previously unreleased amateur footage that chronicles Dark Funeral’s entire career, including the very first, and now legendary, show in Oslo , Norway on May 4, 1994.  The total combined running time for the two discs is nearly four hours. “Besides the three professionally filmed shows, we wanted this first DVD to also serve as a historical, live documentation of our career with rare and previously unreleased footage,” said band leader Lord Ahriman.  “This is the first DVD in a series of two that we will be releasing from touring for ‘Attera Totus Sanctus.’  This first DVD focus on European shows, while the second DVD will focus on South America .” These shows capture Dark Funeral, a band known for being one of the most intense live acts, in their natural element – on stage slaying fans with their relentless brand of extreme metal. The Dark Funeral website will be re-launched shortly to coincide with the release of “Attera Orbis Terrarum – Part 1.”  Regain Records recently re-released three records from the Swedish band’s catalog – “The Secrets of the Black Arts,” “Vobiscum Satanas,” and “Diabolis Interium” – with bonus material.
