ITP V.014 EDITORIAL: FASCISM RISING IN THE UKRAINE?

Not sure if this is a tasteless hoax or symptom of a larger problem regarding right wing factions rising again as ITP V.014 author has written plenty of journal entries challenging that. 

FUCK FASCISM, stand against fascism!  

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/04/17/prorussian-deny-jews-told-to-register/






I'm agnostic. However, this is bullshit and extortion of Jewish property, and cultural identity. This is exactly what Adolf Hitler and the SS nazi's pulled at the beggining of the Holocaust, they raided the Jewish communities, tried to rationalize extortion of Jewish lives with nazi propaganda spouting tax issues, then sent them off to concentration camps of forced labor to dig their own graves and exterminated millions of Jews, disabled people and gays. This will NOT happen again. Do allied forces have to step in again? I think Adolf Hitler shouldn't have the dignity of suicide, he should have been capped by a Jewish European or African American that would have been so much sweeter.

FROM BLOOD MUSIC and CLOUD KICKER:
And a statement from the Mystery artist has finally been revealed, thanks to news coverage spreading to Tiny Mix Tapes, Heavy As A Heavy Blog, MetalSucks.net, and Metal Injection.

"Doesn't bug me at all. I wasn't going to release any of the old stuff on vinyl anyway. If they make a bunch of money from it then it's my fault for being lazy. As far as I'm concerned everyone wins: I get to not worry about it, and people get to buy old albums on vinyl that they otherwise wouldn't have been able to. Blood Music didn't have to give me a dime, but they gave me much more than that which is very cool of them. They're even sending me some copies which I will be able to sell myself."

FENRISMAW: JOSH ROOD INTERVIEWED BY CNN ON PAGANISM VS. RACISM

JOSH ROOD, vocalist of Poughkeepsie, NY blackened death metal warriors FENRISMAW was interviewed by CNN on the neo Pagan ties of white supremacist/odinist  FRAZIER GLENN CROSS, whom is accused of shooting and killing three Jews attending a Sunday school in Overland Park, Kansas last Sunday.







JOSH ROOD has also published an OP ED on CNN about ASATRU and its struggle with racism.

JOSH ROOD is currently attending graduate Asatru and Norse studies at the University of Iceland.




FENRISMAW unleashed "Helcult" 8/18/2013, self released, as the band is on hiatus until JOSH ROOD finishes his graduate studies.



FROM FENRISMAW:
Apparently CNN is taking notice of our singer Josh's hard work in Iceland. He was quoted in this article:
http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2014/04/14/frazier-glenn-cross-racist-religion/
And this is an Op Ed published on CNN on what Ásatrú is, and it´s struggle with racism.

KATATONIA: DANIEL LILJEKVIST (DRUMMER) LEAVES KATATONIA



Swedish progressive, atmospheric metal warriors KATATONIA have announced drummer DANIEL LILJEKVIST has left the band as JP Asplund will take over on drums.



KATATONIA have unleashed a lyric video for the track "WAIT OUTSIDE", from the 10th anniversary of the bands classic release "Viva Emptiness", re-unleashed 10/28/2013. KATATONIA's  "Viva Emptiness" is due to be re-issued on VINYL 11/25/2013 via PEACEVILLE RECORDS.                                                                                                                                  
KATATONIA are set for a spring 2014 ACOUSTIC EUROPEAN tour.







    
KATATONIA unleashed "Dead End Kings" 8/27/2012 via PEACEVILLE RECORDS.






FROM KATATONIA:




Dear friends and fans,
I've been thinking about this for the last couple of months and I’ve come to the sad conclusion that i have to leave the band. It’s got nothing to do with ’difference in views´or any other bullshit. I just cannot combine job, family and commit 100% to Katatonia. Times for musicians are rough and i’ve decided to concentrate on my family and get a normal job that gets the bills payed.
I’ve had some of the best moments in my life the past 14 odd years together with my favorite people in the world. I’ve been all over the planet with this lot…my second family. Thank you! I’m gonna miss playing with you and I’m gonna miss hanging out with you on the road so much. And I’m gonna miss meeting all the great Katatonia fans all over the world. You know who you are. You are truly amazing! I’m not gonna miss all the freaks and idiots we’ve come across during all the years. You probably don’t know who you are. And I will not miss bad catering, shit beer and banana juice…
This is Daniel, rocking the fuck off! Cheers!
We are sad and hollow to see Daniel leave our ranks, but yet his decision has our sincere understanding. Nothing lasts forever and all good things must come to an end sooner or later. Yet it makes it so much more frustrating when it happens for the wrong reasons or before reaching our terminus. Particularly, we can’t pretend the current climate has nothing to do with it, in fact this is undeniably yet another outcome of musicians struggling at the crossroads of today’s “scene/industry”. Tragically, this situation forces a member, brother – and our fans favourite long-time drummer – to resign from a band he sacrificed a decade and a half to build. While encouraging this topic to inevitable debate and re-evaluation, we will always be grateful for the years we shared together and we wish Daniel the best of luck in the future. It goes without saying, we part as band members, but certainly remain as friends.




On a further positive note, this will not affect any of the upcoming tour dates. The ‘Dethroned &Uncrowned – Unplugged & Reworked’ tour next month will proceed accordingly and see JP Asplund taking on percussion duties – he was the one who actually played all original percussion on Dead End Kings/Dethroned & Uncrowned albums. Stand-in drummer Daniel Moilanen (Ex-Engel) will perform on the upcoming summer festivals. Let’s welcome our helping hands, have a goodbye toast for Daniel (note that would be 11 sips for him) and keep our eyes on the horizon: new tours coming up in South America and Australia as well as the long awaited 20th anniversary ‘Last Fair Day Gone Night – Live at Koko’ DVD coming out this fall and much more…

Our friend Tomas Åkvik from Stockholm’s raw power rockers Nale, will make sure we stay heavy on this summer’s festival gigs where he’ll fill in on second guitar:


  • Aug 07 / Brutal Assault / Jaromer / Czech Republic





  • Aug 08 / Party.San Open Air / Schlotheim / Germany





  • Aug 16 / Rockstadt Extreme Fest / Rasnov / Romania






  • As previously announced, Bruce Soord from The Pineapple Thief/Wisdom of Crowds will step in as a session live guest on our ‘Dethroned & Uncrowned – Unplugged & Reworked’ tour in may:


    • May 8 / Biebob / Vosselaar / Belgium





    • May 9 / P60 / Amstelveen / The Netherlands





    • May 10 / Christuskirche / Bochum / Germany





    • May 11 / Freiheiz / Munchen / Germany





    • May 12 / Passionkirche / Berlin / Germany





    • May 13 / Schuur / Lucerne / Switzerland





    • May 14 / Les Docks / Lausanne / Switzerland





    • May 15 / Divan du Monde / Paris / France





    • May 16 / Union Chapel / London / United Kingdom





    • May 17 / Brudenell Social Club / Leeds / United Kingdom




    • VIDEO BELOW FROM DAYLIGHT DIES "THE ICE BANG" (COURTESY OF DAYLIGHT DIES): 
      We're bummed to hear friend and drummer Daniel Liljekvist has decided to leave Katatonia. Obviously they are all friends and we've toured quite a bit together. We're currently reminiscing back to the epic icebang session from the "Dismantling North America/The Great Cold Fall" tour of 2006. This icebangs for you Daniel!
