DOMINANZ – ‘The End Of All There Is’ New Video Is Up! – 2011-05-31

Norwegian industrial metal band DOMINANZ by Feber Film in Dale, a deep in a valley of  Fjords. The chosen video location is a huge factory established in 1869, but which is presently closed. “The End Of All There Is” is the title track of DOMINANZ ‘s first single (also featuring the song “Infinity”), which was released on October 25. A full-length album, “As I Shine”, will follow in early 2011.

The DOMINANZ press release states about their music:

“plays dark, gloomy industrial metal, but at the same time trying to do it in an engaging way. There are also elements from genres such as death and black metal. The musical expression is a mix between the aforementioned genres, but there are also influences from the ’80s heavy metal and 1990s and 2000s electro. The lyric deals with everything from depictions of erotic, male chauvinism further to social critical lyrics. The main theme is on the bleak and destructive. Inspirations for the texts are taken from books, movies, personal experience, as well as from-ancient and modern history, as well as newspapers, documentaries and news programs. In this context it must be understood that DOMINANZ in no way is a political band, but we are all very socially committed.”

DOMINANZ is:

Bjørn Nese – Synthesizer
Jørn Inge Tunsberg (IMMORTAL, OLD FUNERAL, HADES ALMIGHTY, AMPUTATION, HADES) – Guitar
Frode Gaustad (THY GRIEF) – Drums
Roy Nordaas (CULT OF DECEPTION) – Vocals/bass

GOJIRA Song Featuring DEVIN TOWNSEND and MESHUGGAH Guitarist On METAL HAMMER CD – 2011-05-27

 

The new issue of U.K.’s Metal Hammer magazine hits the shelves next Wednesday and it will come packaged with a “Razor” CD that contains a world-exclusive new song from French extreme progressive metallers GOJIRA. The track “Of Blood And Salt” features guest appearances by Canadian musician and producer Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) and Fredrik Thordendal (MESHUGGAH). The song comes off GOJIRA‘s forthcoming four-song EP which was recorded at the end of last year at a Los Angeles, California-area studio with producer Logan Mader (ex-MACHINE HEAD/SOULFLY guitarist).

 

On what prompted GOJIRA‘s involvement with Sea Shepherd:

Duplantier:

“I saw a movie called ‘Sharkwater’. It was made by a guy [Rob Stewart] who is involved with sharks. And he just wanted to film sharks; he’s diving in the ocean and he hugs sharks and he’s trying to present them as they are — not like a threat or a danger or monsters, but just animals [who are] beautiful. They have the right to live. It’s not just because they’re dangerous that we should kill them all. And the fact is that more than 90 percent of the sharks on the planet disappeared over the last 30 years only — like, they’re almost gone. It’s really sad; it made me cry when I watched this movie. And in this movie you can Sea Shepherd in the second half of the movie, they’re in the movie all the time, because they meet on the… It’s like a road trip — he’s [Rob Stewart] filming himself all the time — and he meets the guy from Sea Shepherd and they help him to save some of the sharks. They’re facing a huge problem with the international mafia who’s dealing with shark things, for the Japanese mostly, to put them in the soup. So they catch sharks and they cut the things [fins] and they throw back the sharks in the water and they just die like that. A lot of poor countries do that so you could also care about these people trying to survive and fishing and selling. … I’m talking about sharks, but it’s the same problem with whales and dolphins and tuna… All these species are just disappearing from the planet because everybody wants to eat them or catch them for their fat, skin, bones, fins, for makeup products or even for weapons… Some parts of the whales are used to build weapons.

“After [seeing the ‘Sharkwater’] movie, I was, like, ‘Holy crap! What can we do for that?’ And what I feel is when you are an artist and you start to have the attention of the people and people actually listen to you and what you’re saying, I think you have a responsibility towards the planet and towards the people. We have to think about what we are saying and what we are doing. And [when it comes to the new GOJIRA] EP, I feel exactly at the right place when I do this.

“There’s a lot of confusion in the world in general. Everybody is in survival mode all the time. And we created this opportunity in our lives to stick the head out of the gutter and stop surviving and try to do something to live, really, like human beings.”

NIGHTWISH – ‘Imaginarium’ Album and Movie Updates – 2011-05-27

 

NIGHTWISH’s new album “Imaginarium”, is being given it’s finishing touches but the band is also planning a movie by the same name. If all goes well, the CD will be released in early 2012 and followed by the movie at some point after. The first single off the album as well as the trailer for the film should arrive well before the end of 2011. NIGHTWISH‘s official web site has been updated with the following message regarding the status of the upcoming album/movie:

“During the last six weeks, the work on ‘Imaginarium’ has advanced by leaps and bounds. We’ve been so busy with the project there has been precious little time for anything else.

“While the band supervises the final mix of the album, location scouting is already underway for the ‘Imaginarium’ movie. As the name of the movie and the information disclosed so far suggest, these real-world special places are few and far between.

“The production crew has also been strengthened by people who have extensive knowledge of post-production technology. This is crucial, because the shoot and post-production are expected to be extremely complex and technically challenging. One of the characters in the movie also needs special attention from the animation department. Without teasing you any further, we can only disclose that this character will surely be remembered by many a NIGHTWISH fan.

“Because of the technical challenges and need for more planning, the shooting has been postponed. The movie will nevertheless be completed on time, as the post-production was begun already before the shooting.

“There’s obviously a lot of expectations for the movie score. Tuomas[Holopainen, keyboardist/main songwriter] is currently working on variations with Petri Alanko, renowned for his prize-winning music for the‘Alan Wake’ video game. The score will be based on the songs on the album and their main themes in a way that — like many other things with the ‘Imaginarium’ movie — is a first in the history of motion pictures.

‘Imaginarium’ was also featured at the Cannes Movie Festival, whereSolar Films presented their forthcoming films. At the same time, the script went through its biggest and most anticipated overhaul so far, confirming that ‘Imaginarium’ will in no way be a children’s movie but a dark and foreboding fantasy; a dream world that lacks no surprises.

“In a nutshell, like the director of the movie tends to characterize his productions, ‘well-planned is half done.’ The famous sign post on the crossroads leading to ‘Imaginarium’ is already visible. It says ‘Imaginarium, X miles’, and underneath it reads in small, red, curving hand-writing: ‘Soon it’s time to start shooting.’
