Late night call: Is Kiss calling it quits?

Old rumors circulating in the beginning of the year are back again!


On February 8th Kiss registered the trademark “End of the Road” raising concern among fans that they were calling it quits.

However, it wasn’t until TODAY that they announced the hashtag #EndOftheRoad World Tour making something more feasible for real questions.

A mysterious video without sound suddenly appeared on Facebook and at the same time an animation appeared on their website

No dates were announced though.

The legendary band has been around for some 45 years now. Let’s hope if this is really the end, everybody can be able to catch them on the “end of the road”.

Brazil’s Holocausto recording new album with original line-up

The original purveyors of war metal are back!


Holocausto is already on the studio recording the follow-up to their EP War Metal Massacre which will be called War Diary with no defined date of release as of yet.

The original line-up is reunited 31 years after the release of their iconic album Campo de Extermínio released by Cogumelo Records in 1987, an album that shocked headbangers all around the world.

The band has 5 albums, one EP and lots of other releases as demos and compilations, always changing their sound, but arguably Campo de Extermínio is their best album do date, putting Holocausto in the pantheon of bands that influenced Black Metal all over the world along with Sarcófago and (old) Sepultura and making them the very first WAR METAL band in the globe with an insane sound that has been praised by die-hards worldwide even today.

The album is being recorded and produced by André Cabelo (aka Andrevil) who produced War Metal Massacre and several other bands like Chakal, Cirrhosis and Wagner Lamounier’s The Evil.

Sangrena: new 2017 album?

The technical gods from South America finally announce a new work.


Sangrena one of the most classic and underrated brutal death metal bands from Brazilian land (arguably they were the first ones who tried in this style) seems to be back after a long time since their last album Blessed Black Spirit from 2009.

It’s been a long way ever since and they are talking about a new album for some years now.

But finally, they announced in a very vague advertisement about a “2007” album giving no certain date. The working title is Hunter All that is known by the fans so far is that the album is already recorded, but in which phase of process (mixing, mastering, manufacturing) is unknown.

Since the beginning of times Sangrena had endured a great deal of line-up changings being Luciano Fedel (vocals, bass) and Fábio Ferreira (guitars, also a renowned producer) the only constant members. But the line-up has been stable for the last couple of years with Gustavo Bonfá (guitars) and Alan Marques (drums).

Once the date of release of Hunter is revealed, Dark Souls United readers will be the first to know!

Nile – Departure of Dallas Toler-Wade and tour with Overkill

The show must go on.


Dallas Toler-Wade is not a member of Nile anymore and it seems to be a while since they announced his departure just now. Toler-Wade stayed with Nile for almost 20 years which made him a key member of the band and he’ll be missed by fans. He started his contribution in the album Black Seeds of Vengeance and stayed in the band in every record ever since.

16640564_10154238514441016_5494101280085642621_nDallas Toler-Wade “has decided to leave the band to focus on his own plans and recordings”, according to their Facebook page. This project may or may not be his other band Narcotic Wasteland.

Their newest member is Brian Kingsland (Guitars, Vocals, also from the South Carolina technical death/black band Enthean.

Today they embark in a tour with almighty Overkill covering 24 cities across USA.

Say Karl Sanders and George Kollias on their Facebook page:

Karl Sanders

“I would like to personally thank Dallas Toler Wade for his many years with the band, and sincerely wish him well with his music .

All of us in Nile are truly happy and thankful to be working with Brian . Not only is he a seriously talented Extreme Metal Guitar Shredder, but he has a great Brutal Metal voice , with a very versatile range . Brian is also a genuine , down-to-earth hard -working and motivated guy who has helped reignite and re-establish a sense of team work back into Nile. With the addition of Brian on guitar and vocals, The band right now seems to me a lot more like the early years of Nile– the Classic Nile era when we were all functioning as a cohesive unit , in viciously brutal Triple Vocal attack mode . The mood in the Nile rehearsal room for the last 3 months has been focused and relaxed ; with 4 positive , energized , hard working people all on the same Metal page. We simply can’t wait to share what we have been working on with Metal Fans on the upcoming Overkill Tour. Between the addition of Brian , and Bassist / Vocalist Brad Parris now in his 2nd year in the band , this line-up is going to Crush Skulls. Seriously, the last time I felt this strongly about a Nile Line-up – was when George Kollias joined the band.”

George Kollias

“I want to thank Dallas for everything he did for Nile all these years, its been some amazing years and i wish him the best with his new project!

Also, I want to say a big “welcome to Nile” to Brian Kingsland! Brian is an amazing guitar player/vocalist and he has brought a very fresh vibe to the band, we are so looking forward to get out there and deliver the best metal you ever heard from us! See you all on the road !!”
