Upcoming Metal/Rock Albums... from Venom to Papa Roach to All Ends

Paul Travers of Suite 101 recently conducted an interview with VENOM frontman Conrad "Cronos" Lant about the group's forthcoming album, "Hell".

Toronto's CANCER BATS will release its much-anticipated sophomore full-length album, "Hail Destroyer", on June 24 via Black Market Activities. According to a press release, "Hail Destroyer" sees CANCER BATS "mature sonically and evolving as they incorporate the past, present of hardcore while they pave out its future."

AMBERIAN DAWN will have its debut album, "River of Tuoni", released in European territories outside of Finland on June 16 via Ascendance Records

DESTRUCTION entered Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark on April 21 with producer Jacob Hansen to begin recording its new album, "D.E.V.O.L.U.T.I.O.N." An August 29 European release is expected.

PAPA ROACH recently changed the working title of its next album, which was originally called "Days of War, Nights of Love". The new title for the band's fifth major label CD is "Metamorphosis". "Metamorphosis" is expected out in late August or early September. The band has yet to decide on an exact release date or first single.

Dutch female-fronted metal band MORNING will release its sophomore album, "Moments of Truth", in September.

Swedish technical death metallers SOREPTION have completed the songwriting process for their full-length debut. The band is scheduled to enter the studio in August to begin recording the effort for a late 2008/early 2009 release.

ALL ENDS — the Swedish hard rock band featuring Emma Gelotte (sister of IN FLAMES guitarist Björn Gelotte) and Tinna Karlsdotter on vocals, Fredrik Johansson (DIMENSION ZERO, IN FLAMES' "The Jester Race" album) and Peter Mårdklint (EMBRACED, TENEBRE) on guitar, along with Josef Skanås on drums — will be released in the UK on July 21 via Legacy/Sony BMG."Pretty Words", the new video from ALL ENDS can be viewed below. The song comes off the group's self-titled full-length debut, which entered the Japanese "International" chart at position No. 8. - This should be good...
