ZYKLON, the Norwegian band featuring EMPEROR members Samoth (guitar) and Trym (drums), are scheduled to start recording their third album, tentatively titled "Disintegrate", at Akkerhaugen Lydstudio in Norway in November. The mixing will take place at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden early next year. The album is set for worldwide release through Candlelight Records early spring 2006. Songtitles include "Wrenched", "Cold Grave", "Disintegrate", "In Hindsight", "Skinned and Endangered", "Vulture", "Subversive Faith", "Underdog" and "Vile Ritual".In other news, ZYKLON's full-length DVD, entitled "Storm Detonation Live", is currently being edited and is scheduled for worldwide release through Candlelight Records in early 2006. The DVD was recorded live at Germany's Party.San Open Air festival in 2004 and captures the foursome at their best — live on stage. The DVD also includes the band's two promotional videos for "Psyklon Aeon" and "Core Solution", exclusive on-the-road and bootleg video footage and a very exclusive "at the rehearsal room" teaser of the new material. As previously reported, EMPEROR reunited after four years to play a surprise three-song set for Norwegian metal magazine Scream's 15-year anniversary which took place at Oslo's Rockefeller Friday night (Sept. 30). Check out pictures at this location (all photos were taken by EMPEROR guitarist Samoth's wife Erin). Samoth told producer Patrizia Mazzuoccolo of the Norwegian metal radio show "Tinitus" that Friday night's performance was "a short teaser that we are using to announce full headline shows we are doing next year. This is a cooler way of announcing them instead of telling people through our web site." It was announced Friday night after the band's set that EMPEROR will headline the Inferno festival (April 13-15, 2006) in Oslo, Norway and Wacken Open Air (August 3-5, 2006) in Wacken, Germany next year. An exclusive brand-new interview with EMPEROR (conducted in English) will be aired on "Tinitus" on Wednesday, October 5 on Norwegian national radio channel P3. "Tinitus" is on every Wednesday from 20:00 (8:00 p.m.) to 22:00 (10:00 p.m.) on P3. The show is also available on the Internet: www.nrk.no/tinitus.
