This was just too cool to leave alone and not make a mention of in some fashion. It was also the perfect chance to continue to use the official blog for PiercingMetal.com in an engaging way and let it adventure bravely into new and exciting Metal territory a little more than I allow it. So here is the scoop. A couple of months ago those fine folks at Scion A/V offered up a free EP by the legendary Enslaved called “The Sleeping Gods” and this five song opus is a perfect continuation of their latest full length release Axioma Ethica Odini which can be found on their label Nuclear Blast Records. These two albums when listened to in sequence will prove how the group has transcended the role of being just a Black Metal band into something that delves into both the Progressive and the Psychedelic as well. The interesting thing about this is how they do not lose an ounce of their power by doing so and can now bring in a new legion of fans and believers around the world. Nice work.

Juggernauts in the Symphonic Black Metal world, Dimmu Borgir had finally returned to NYC. The show would find Kataklysm, Devildriver and Unearth providing support and it was an event to be remembered. We were on point to bring you the full story and take photos of every band.

The photos of the Black Metal elite as done by Peter Beste are rather fantastic and when the photographer compiled them into a book entitled “True Norwegian Black Metal”; we knew we had to help spread the word about it. He would hold a show at the Stephen Kasher Gallery where a number of the images that the Black Metal fans would find in the book and the event allowed those who had interest to not only purchase a signed copy of the book, but also get to meet the man in person and hear some stories about what led to the photographs. Those with the proper finances were also able to purchase prints of these same images. We covered the event and by clicking the image below you will be brought to our item on the main PiercingMetal.com site.
