New Signing: THE ARCANE ORDER

Please welcome THE ARCANE ORDER to the Massacre Records family!

Everything began back in 2000, when TAO guitarist Flemming C. Lund (Invocator, ex-Autumn Leaves) formed the band, which was called Scavenger back then.

About 3 years later, everything began to take form when Flemming recruited fellow musicians bassist Boris Tandrup (I'll Be Damned, ex-Autumn Leaves) and drummer Morten Løwe Sørensen (Amaranthe, ex-HateSphere, ex-Mercenary).

In May 2005, THE ARCANE ORDER finished recording a demo with vocalist Kasper Thomsen (ex-Raunchy), which then led to a deal with Metal Blade Records after the band's name Scavenger was changed to THE ARCANE ORDER.

The band's debut "The Machinery Of Oblivion" was nominated for best debut album at the Danish Metal Awards in late 2006.

In April 2007, guitarist Kasper Kirkegaard (Slow Death Factory) was added to TAO's line-up.

The band's second album "In The Wake Of Collisions" was released in early 2008 and gained fantastic reviews worldwide.

During these years, THE ARCANE ORDER played with bands like Testament, HateSphere, Suffocation and Carcass. The band went on a hiatus in 2010, but returned with a 2-track promo in mid-2014 and a new record deal with Massacre Records, signed in late 2014!

The new album of Denmark's hard-hitting unit THE ARCANE ORDER is set to be released in 2015 via Massacre Records!

» Lineup

Kasper Thomsen - Vocals
Flemming C. Lund - Lead/Rhythm Guitar
Kasper Kirkegaard - Rhythm Guitar

New Signing: MICHAEL JESSEN

MICHAEL JESSEN has joined the Massacre Records family!

The Danish musician picked up the guitar by the age of 15, and a childhood friend taught him how to play the main riff of AC/DC's "Hells Bells". Needless to say that this was the beginning of something great!

MICHAEL JESSEN played in numerous bands, which all had one thing in common: guitar-oriented rock music.

After the split of his band "High Octane" in 2012, Michael wanted to try out his talent as a solo artist and was soon joined by vocalist Göran Edman (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen), Mads Grunnet (drums) and Christoffer Hoås (bass), with whom he recorded an a 4-track EP as well as his upcoming album "Memories".

MICHAEL JESSEN's new album "Memories" will be released on December 5, 2014 via Massacre Records!

RAUNCHY: Artwork, New Song + Tour Dates

Are you ready for RAUNCHY's new album?

"Vices.Virtues.Visions" was produced by Jacob Hansen.. The stunning artwork was designed by the band's guitarist Lars Christensen himself.

Lars on the artwork:
"I wanted to create something powerful, colourful and iconic that dealt with illustration. My main goal was to do it all as illustration as I'm so fed up with Photoshop covers these days. I wanted to create something slightly different, mysterious and little psychedelic - maybe a little androgynous as well. It´s hard to tell if it's a male or female on the front cover. Since I'm a big fan of science fiction and futuristic imaginative universes, I wanted to incorporate that into the scenery."

"Truth Taker", the second track on the album, is available for streaming in its entirety here:

RAUNCHY were recently confirmed for the Danish MTV Headbangers Ball Tour, along with their label mates HateSphere!

VENI DOMINE: Band Quits

On September 20, 2014 VENI DOMINE announced the band's breakup on their fb page. Here's the full statement:

"With a heavy heart we bring you the news that we decided to put the band to sleep, it is no longer.

27 years that holds and keeps the full spectra of every emotion imaginable, not without sadness we left the table with the decision unthinkable but yet inevitable.

Time caught up with us and at the end of the day we found that trying keeping a band at a high level with all including parts is a task too time-consuming to handle. On the horizon we saw it coming. Even though we steered clear of the horizon on many occasions the horizon moved closer, faster than expected this time.

We left the table with a sense of mutual respect, the brotherhood and friendship will live on.

Being labeled a Christian band we fought the preconceptions on many fronts and we feel fortunate to have gained friends all over the world, including all kinds of different worldviews excluding no one.

Our love and respect to all our friends who stood by us during the years, our families who took the downside of the business, all of you who bought the music, responded and communicated back to us, we shared this journey that ends today.

We leave with the legacy of seven albums, there's a lot to say about that but one must not linger in the past, tomorrow must not be bound by yesterdays, life will move on.

The future holds no promises other than that all is possible. Branching out from here: The Redstone Project, Grand Stand and Nubian Rose - keep track of those and we will meet again."

VENI DOMINE's final album "Light" was released in late May 2014 via Massacre Records.

SCANNER: New Album

SCANNER have resigned to Massacre Records and plan to release a new album!

SCANNER sure aren't strangers in the metal scene, since they're around since the mid-80's!

SCANNER had a few bumps in the road of their journey so far, but that didn't stop them from doing their thing! SCANNER always existed, even when there were false rumors circulating regarding the band's status.

The band can look back on an impressive live history, including numerous live gigs worldwide, European tours and appearances at festivals, such as Germany's Wacken Open Air.

From 1988 'til 2002, SCANNER released 5 albums so far and now - almost 13 years after the release of their latest album "Scantropolis" - the band is back with a new record!

The band's brand new album is entitled "The Judgement"! The cover artwork's been created by Anestis Goudas.

The idea behind the album is that the Scanner has returned to earth to see what religion has done to mankind. He also asks himself how a society would evolve if there wouldn't be any religion at all. Would it be possible to live in peace?

The new album promises to feature true and uncompromising power speed metal! There will be catchy songs like the album's title track, but also songs that will have you chanting and singing along, and even high speed metal tracks.

SCANNER's new album "The Judgement" is planned to be released in late January 2015 via Massacre Records!

Line-up

Axel A.J. Julius - Guitars
Efthimios Ioannidis - Vocals
Andreas Zeidler - Guitars
Jonathan Sell - Bass
Patrick Klose - Drums

New Signing: STORMWITCH

STORMWITCH have signed with Massacre Records and are going to release their new album "Season Of The Witch" in early 2015!

The band was formed in the early 80's and released its debut album "Walpurgis Night" in 1984. With the release of their 4th album "Beauty And The Beast" in 1987, which featured the band's first ballad, the fans soon referred to them as the masters of black romantic.

The band's 7th album "Shogun" should be the last for the next few years since STORMWITCH decided to disband in 1996. In 2004, the band briefly returned and released the album "Witchcraft" but split up again shortly after. In 2010, STORMWITCH were finally back again with a new line-up.

Meanwhile, the band's line-up consists of Vocalist Andy Mück, guitarists Ralf Stoney and Volker Schmietow, bassist Jürgen Wannenwetsch and drummer Micha Kasper, who recently replaced Peter Langer who left the band due to private reasons.

STORMWITCH were always known for their memorable live shows and played numerous club shows as well as festival gigs worldwide and toured with bands such as Killer or Krokus.

STORMWITCH wrote history, but are still bursting with new ideas.

Beware, the WITCH is alive!

Line-up

Andy Mück - Vocals
Ralf "Stoney" - Guitar
Volle Schmietow - Guitar
Jürgen "Wanschi" Wannenwetsch - Bass
Micha Kasper - Drums
