    "I fight the impending lure of belated sleep
    For fear of waking up and you are gone"
    Triptykon, "My Pain," 2010

    "For the first time in 74 years, last night [May 12] was a night not illuminated by the indescribable light that was H.R. Giger.

    "H.R. Giger became our mentor, against all odds, when we, somewhat audaciously, first established contact with him some 30 years ago. At a time when almost everybody ridiculed, ignored, or even obstructed the music the then almost completely unknown Swiss underground band Hellhammer was creating, Giger listened to us, talked to us, and gave us a chance. Not least at a time when he was at one of many peaks of his path.

    General News

    Music video director and photographer Andrew MacNaughtan is known for his keen eye and creative art direction. MacNaughtan brought a unique vision to each project, seen in the direction of over 70 music videos, the album art photography of over 150 releases and the press and publicity material for several recording artists and celebrities.

    MacNaughtan photographed such premier artists as Avril Lavigne, Celine Dion, The Barenaked Ladies, Alanis Morissette, 3 Doors Down, Michael Bublé and Nickelback. His eclectic style adapts to a wide range of subjects, from the progressive -- cutting-edge rock band Simple Plan -- to the sophisticated -- the official portrait of Her Excellency, Madam Clarkson, the Governor-General of Canada.

    General News

    Metallica - The Early Years And The Rise Of Metal by Neil Daniels. This is the first and only book to look at the massive impact of Metallica’s first four albums on the international metal scene. This book shows the birth and rise of the monster known as Metallica and will link the band – and the American metal scene – with the famed "New Wave of British Heavy Metal" movement in the UK and metal originators such as Black Sabbath and Judas Priest.

    Metallica's early success was built on strong live performances and fierce thrash metal riffs. The group would eventually become the biggest American metal band in the world and the legacy of those first four albums – Kill 'Em All, Ride The Lightning, Master Of Puppets plus ...And Justice For All – lives on to this day.

    Band News (tours, comings/goings, etc)

    Back with their first album since 2005, progressive metal originals Lord Of Mushrooms returned on 27 February 2012 with their third album Perspectives.

    Now fronted by Gus Monsanto (ex-Adagio), Lord Of Mushrooms is back to the front and blessed with an incredible collection of songs. Perspectives is, without any doubt, the most ambitious and challenging work the band has created to date.

    Perspectives has over the last few months been picking up extremely positive praise from press and fans worldwide and now the band have just unveiled their first ever promo video for the track "Circles On The Water" on YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ka_-mi4C2KQ

    Taken from the aforementioned Perspectives release, the track has been edited down from its original 8 minute running length to make a more streamlined version of one of the album’s centre pieces. Full information on Lord Of Mushrooms – Perspectives @ www.lionmusic.com/cd/perspectives.htm
