MIRROR OF DECEPTION: Line-Up change
Swabian Doomsters MIRROR OF DECEPTION have decided to split ways with their bassist and drummer in order to fully concentrate on the band again. The two remaining founding members Jochen and Siffi are currently searching for replacements to start writing songs for a yet untitled new album. Find the full statement below:
“After a two year hiatus we have come together to discuss the future of our band. Andi (bass) and Josef (drums, vocals) have decided to leave Mirror of Deception. We have always seen ourselves as a band which rehearses on a regular basis. Due to job and family obligations it will be no longer possible to meet our own demands with this line-up. They both will continue to be active with Mountain Throne and in Josef's case also Holistic Hobos. We are proud of all the music we have created together, everything we have experienced and achieved in these 10 years together and we are parting as friends. Siffi (vocals, guitar) and Jochen (guitar) will now search for a new bass player and drummer, work on new songs, return to the stage later this year and continue what we have started back in 1990.”

FDA Rekotz presents: GOLEM - Eternity-The Weeping Horizons / The 2nd Moon (Re-Releases)
GOLEM. This legendary and absolutely underrated band started back in 1989. In the 1990s they have released two of the best Death Metal albums ever, which have never been released on vinyl. Until now!
FDA Rekotz is re-releasing both "Eternity - The Weeping Horizons" (1996) and "The 2nd Moon" (1998).
Both albums were remastered by Andreas Hilbert (head of the band) and to top it of Mark Cooper has created new killer artwork. GOLEM are influenced by bands like CARCASS, DEATH or MORBID ANGEL and are surely on the same musical level. They never got the luck to be pushed by one of the big record labels at the time (early/mid 90s). They are still more or less active and the time has come to rise above and beyond, to show their great compositions to a wider audience.
Now it's time to re-release both hard to find albums for the first time ever on vinyl (2LP), as well as Double CD and for Download!
The vinyl will be limited to 100 transparent green and 400 rotten black copies, printed lyrics, old pictures and more than 80 minutes pure fucking Death Metal at it's best.
Double-CD, Double-LP and Download will be unleashed from the grave on April 4th, 2014!
