ZYKLON Video Serviced To MTV2, THOU SHALT SUFFER Album To See U.S. Release

March 22, 2004

ZYKLON's video for the track "Psyklon Aeon" has recently been serviced to regional as well as key national outlets — including MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball". Guitarist Samoth says: "This is the first official video for ZYKLON. It's exciting for us to finally get it broadcasted in the U.S., especially now with the "Headbanger's Ball" being back in business. The video features live clips from various shows last summer and from numerous locations in the Norwegian wilderness."

ZYKLON, featuring former members of EMPEROR, recently completed a three-week European tour with ARCH ENEMY. Samoth says of the tour: "Except for a few set backs, the tour went very well for us. It was great to be back out touring in Europe. Highlights were definitely Italy, Spain and France, with good turnouts and really enthusiastic crowds."

In other related news, Candlelight Records will be issuing "Into the Woods of Belial" from THOU SHALT SUFFER. The album, previously unavailable in the U.S., features Samoth and EMPEROR vocalist Ihsahn. "I've been thinking of re-issuing this album for quite some time, especially considering it was never properly available in the U.S.," says Samoth, whose Nocturnal Art Productions originally released the album. "I think to this day the album offers strong and classic material. It is definitely a piece of Norwegian metal history; dark, obscure death metal that spawned the creation of EMPEROR."

Later this year, Candlelight will reissue the entire EMPEROR catalog, until recently available via license to Century Media Records. Enhancements and additions are expected (specifics not available at press time). THOU SHALT SUFFER's "Into the Woods of Belial" will hit stores nationwide on May 18.
