code666 is happy to announce the signing of the Post-Atomic Sonic Tribe AGRUSS for the release of their debut album titled “Morok”, scheduled to hit stores on April 26th, 2012: a very symbolic day, since it is the 26th anniversary of the Nuclear Accident of Chernobyl. Agruss was founded in Ukraine in  2009. All members of the band have grown on a land that symbolically reflect the reality of our days: ancient forests, swamps and rivers surrounded by three old nuclear power plants from Sovietic era, one of which exploded in 1986, leaving a permanent  scar on our planet and in the life of 6 young mens. “Morok” is the debut album of this incredible band, a desperate scream of frustration, anger and condemnation to the world, and for the world.
“We are very proud to work with code666″ says vocalist Tvorek ” it is a label devoted to discover special and unique bands from obscure places, we really feel at home here. “Morok” is our debut album and it is the first part of a future trilogy… our songs are the result of experiments and rituals to recreate the post-atomic atmosphere of our land… those tracks have been recorded in very difficult living conditions for us, but the whole process helped our everyday life in many ways, so we decided to experiments with sound structures and melodies, from the cold and depressive black metal to pure hardcore brutality. Nature is inside us, we are inside the nature.” more informations here
code666 is proud to announce the signing of the Obscure Black Metal duo NACHTVORST for the release of their new album titled “Silence”, scheduled to hit stores in late May 2012.
Nachtvorst was created in the winter of 2007 by Leopold and Erghal to compose atmospheric and emotional music trying to recreate the extreme vastness of Kantian Sublimity… By blending elements of black, death and doom metal and incorporating post-rock and sludge metal the music becomes a dark fusion of thick sound and psychotic vocals. After their praised 2009’s debut album “Stills”, hailed as one of the best underground album of the Year, Nachtvorst worked 3 long years to make the next step up with the brand new opus “Silence”, scheduled on cult label code666 for may 2012. more informations here

Goregorecords, the death metal sublabel of Aural Music, will re-release the long time sold out album “Inside the Unreal” from italian Death Metal Gods ELECTROCUTION. to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original release, the members of the band gathered to work on this special, limited edition CD, remastered and visually revamped in a luxurious digipack. Commented Guitarist Alex Guadagnoli: We’ve been offered many times to license this album for a reissue through the last decade but for one reason or another we’ve always declined. Incredibly, fans kept showing support and appreciation for 20 years and we’re amazed by such a loyal display of respect. The price of used copies on Amazon skyrocketed up to $100 each and still the items sold out. At this point we wanted to give death metal fans a better way to own this record. Since this year is the 20th Anniversary of the original release, we feel the time is right. We’re packing this limited edition with great content, remastered songs, completely re-styled artwork and never before seen pictures, all in a stunning digipak with a 16 page booklet. Plus, we couldn’t be happier with the label and distribution we’ve signed with.”

dear members of the world who make out the few percentage of it that is our listeners,
when we started this band it’s main purpose was to be musical therapy for the four of us involved. within the walls of our rehearsal space we could do anything, and we did all that our minds could come up with. maybe not the most original stuff ever to come out of a band, but it was heartfelt and at the top of our performance. that was all we needed and all we ever wanted. during the ten year life span of this band we made eight demos and three cd’s (including the alter egos come sleep and rövfitta) and we are glad we’ve had the chance to make and record so much music. we haven’t travelled far or often, but some of the gigs we’ve done have been amazing and journeys on stage. music is a very onesided relationship. you take, music gives. if music doesn’t give, you listen to something else. when you are done with music, you sell it and buy new music. unless music keeps giving, then things stay the same until it doesn’t. now, treat people like that and they will leave you. thankfully, music makes you feel but it doesn’t feel. we like to talk about music as our lover, but we treat it like a whore. it sounds harsh, but it’s the truth. so what’s the point to all this ranting? well, two months ago, misha decided to leave the band. music wasn’t giving any more. the muse that had been lingua inspired no new material and was giving no theraputic value. in fact, he felt like he didn’t need that kind of therapy anymore. anyone who listenes to the lyrics off the last album can clearly hear the direction things were going. we worked so hard making “all my rivals..”, drained ourselves from ideas and threw everything we had in it. little did we know we were working on our swan song. but it became very clear to us as a year progressed after its release and we stood without new ideas, energy or inspiration. lingua had been drained and there was nothing we could do to bring it back to life again. when misha anounced his departure, all these issues surfaced and it stood clear that the band in fact had been dead for a long time. we just didn’t want to se it. we had a great run, ten fucking years! but everything ends, and lingua (with all its alter egos) ends here. so what now? thomas, anders and patrik has decided to keep playing music, but under a different name and with all new material. there was never any doubt not to bring in more people and keep lingua alive. lingua is a collective and it has four members. without any single one of us out, lingua is not. simple as that. misha has decided to leave music alone for a while in hope to find new inspiration. meanwhile he’s going back to school in order to educate himself as school was one of his imaginary ghosts as a young man. but whatever we do musically, we promise you that we will keep you updated on this blog so you can follow us, if you feel it’s hard to let go. but we can’t leave without a grand finale, right? so first off we will finnish what we’ve started, which is a new rövfitta demo. expect 13 tracks of hard hitting and utterly stupid thrash punk in swedish. we’ve also decided to upload everything we’ve ever done with lingua that isn’t bound to legal restraints to our reverbnation site. all our demos, some from the albums, some rehearsals, pre-recordings from 2007 and a few live takes as well. it will all be up there in a little while (or a long while), we’ll let you know when it’s time. and after that, it’s goodbye!

Two new shows have been annonced by the band: On March 02nd, TODTGELICHTER will headline a fine Black/Death/Pagan Metal event in Vienna, Austria at the Escape Metalcorner. Furthermore, the band will co- headline for AGRYPNIE on March 17th in the Gaswerk/ Winterthur (CH). The Studio date for the successor to “Angst” is set for November 2012 and an album title has already eben revealed: Once again, borders will become obsolete and walls will be teared down. Get ready for “Apnoe” to blow your mind in early 2013!
