German melodic black/death metallers SUIDAKRA have issued the following update:"Right after the [recently completed] U.S. tour, we started working on new material again. We managed to nearly complete the whole new record musically! In addition, we have finalized the vocal arrangements of four songs and therefore we can reveal the first songtitles: 'Scathach', 'Gilded Oars', 'Shattering Swords' and 'Isle Of Skye'." Capital Chaos has posted video footage of SUIDAKRA performing at The Boardwalk in Orangevale, California on May 7, 2008 (as part of the "Paganfest 2008 Tour" also featuring TURISAS, ELUVEITIE, ENSIFERUM and TÝR). Watch the clip below. SUIDAKRA's "13 Years of Celtic Wartunes" DVD + "Best Of" CD digipack package was released in Europe in April. It arrived in the U.S. on June 10. "13 Years of Celtic Wartunes" was released as a six-page digipack on the new Wacken Records label, with worldwide distribution by SPV. The set includes the band's Wacken Open Air 2007 performance, an acoustic concert, and a best-of CD with remastered and newly recorded songs spanning the group's 13-year history. The digipack, from front to back cover, and the booklet are designed to look like a book dating back to another time, and include comments from the band plus personal background information about the Wacken show, acoustic concert and the "Best Of" compilation. You'll also find personal, unreleased pictures spanning the history of the band.
