Born From Pain Lineup change
Metal Blade reports: Sadly we announce that, in common agreement, Born From Pain and guitarist Stefan van Neerven will go their separate ways.

Naturally, we wish him all the best for the future and hope to keep him as close to the band as possible. Stefan's long-time stand-in Dominik Stammen (Zero Mentality) will take up the role of steady guitarist for Born From Pain as off now.

Hustle & Flow: "Gangsta raps…bristle with raw anger and brute conviction – the kind forged on the street, not in a studio." 

Elizabethtown: "Classic-rock heartwarmers like Elton John…alongside largely unknown but equally compelling voices such as indie-rock trio Helen Stellar." 

Good Night, and Good Luck: "Heavy on ballads and mournful melodies selected by film director…George Clooney, the set is straight out of the pop-standards playbook: Duke Ellington, Jerome Kern…" 

Rize: "[D]eftly mixes the hip with the holy, dropping righteous raps and frenzied beats alongside stirring gospel celebrations…" 

Kingdom of Heaven: "[A] richly rewarding score…where [composer Harry Gregson-Williams] incorporates tribal drums, ouds, and other ethnic instrumentation…"- Click Here for the Full Story

Goldfrapp Release
Special Ops reports: Goldfrapp's highly anticipated third full-length release Supernature will finally be in stores stateside on March 7th. Through pioneering electronics, crystalline vocals, visual theatrics and glam-sex decadence, Goldfrapp has all the hallmarks of classic British pop music. After Felt Mountain (2000), their Mercury Award nominated debut, their second album - the Brit nominated Black Cherry - was the benchmark of 2003. Its two euphoric, electro-stomp anthems, "Train" and "Strict Machine" were that year's peak of class-pop cool. As a British duo who writes and produces everything together, the new album, Supernature is the sound of Goldfrapp breaking through their own crash barrier, an uncompromising creative force at the top of their very own game.
