In a statement issued today, Austrian Black Metallers HELLSAW announced their intention to take an indefinite break from their activities.  All scheduled tours and appearances during 20012/13 have been cancelled.  Citing “personal reasons” for the decision frontman and founder Aries had this to say: “We may be back, or we may be back as something entirely different, but whatever happens in the future we would just like to thank all the fans who have shown us such phenomenal support and all the people who have worked with us to make HELLSAW what it is today”

Formed in 2002 by Aries, and then-drummer Svart, HELLSAW’s current lineup includes Aries on vocals, Malthus and Isiul on Guitars, Desderoth on Bass and Neuroticon on Drums. With five full-length albums under their belt, HELLSAW are one of the leading Black Metal bands to emerge from Austria in recent years.  The band’s use of instantly recognizable melodies which stay firmly in your memory, coupled with a respect and understanding of what it really takes to make a good Black Metal band created a sound that was unmistakably HELLSAW and culminated in the release of their fifth album “Trist” earlier this year on Napalm records.  More information about HELLSAW can be found at http://www.hellsaw.com

Austrian Black Metallers HELLSAW entered Munich’s Dreamsound Studios last week to begin recording their fourth full-length album.  Titled “Trist”, the album will be the follow up to 2009’s “Cold” and is due for release on Napalm Records in early 2012.

Front man and founder Aries commented about the direction HELLSAW will take with the album.  “The German word “Trist” is difficult to define exactly but if you think of various connotations of solemnity and sadness you’d be thinking along the right lines.  “Cold” was more about melancholy, “Trist” is darker; it’s like the scent of fine whiskey and damp earth.

“As a band, we always prepare thoroughly before going into the studio, but this time we’ve rehearsed even more in order to perfect the sound for each track.  We’ve also sought to redefine the HELLSAW sound, without losing our identity.  There needs to be a certain amount of experimentation with each new album in order to bring the sound up to date.  Without giving too much away, with “Trist” we believe we have found the perfect symbiosis between the old and new elements.  All the songs are strong, and it will definitely kick ass”.

HELLSAW are scheduled to appear at a number of European festivals this year.  Confirmed so far are:

Fri 22 July – Hell Over Vellach (AT)
Sat 30 July – Baden in Blut (DE)
Sat 06 August – Wacken (DE)
Sat 17 Sept – STP Metal Weekend (AT)
Sat 01 Oct – Night Warriors Festival (AT)
Sat 29 Oct – The Dark Crusade Festival (AT)
