Sad news: The music world mourns the loss of Ray Manzarek (74), founding Member and keyboarder of The Doors, White Zombie drummer Phil Buerstatte (44) and Uriah Heep bassist Trevor Bolder (63). R.I.P.!
German Hardrockers BERSERKER will donate 18.000€ to the Berlin cancer charity for children on May 25. November 2011 BERSERKER front man Schröder was diagnosed with cancer, now he is cancer-free. In 2012 the band collected money for this charity at their concerts and will also continue to do so in the future. Slayer´s Jeff Hanneman is dead: he passed away at about 11AM on May 2nd near his Southern California home because of liver failure due to an infection after a spider bite. R.I.P. Jeff!

At the moment Metal is on a track that I particularly enjoy. Therefore I rejoice to find another Swedish band who pays tribute to their idols. BLOOD MORTIZED is the name of those guys from Stockholm and they celebrate the finest Svensk Dödsmetall in the classic style of DISMEMBER, ENTOMBED, AMON AMARTH and TIAMAT. Great, you might say, that is what 1000 other bands are doing, too. Right, but here you find a 1:1 continuation of the Swedish Death Metal inventors´ works, and with conviction, a punch and a voice that makes the toughest hunting dog´s bark seem harmless.
Summing up: Deep and deeper tuned, groovy and cool are the major selling points I have to mention here. As a bonus you´ll find a guest appearance of Rick Rozz (DEATH, MASSACRE) - everything for a true Death Metal heart!
