Nightmare & Cat in the new Ibanez/Darkstone video
Your music on the next Deathstars release
Deathstars Wants You!
Night Electric Night – Platinum Edition
Celebrating a decade of deadly rock – ten years of Deathstars. Now you’ve got the chance to be a part of the band
Yes, for ten years Deathstars have been given birth to a constantly growing and simply amazing hardcore following of die hard-fans - which few bands can even relate to - and now the boys of destruction want to show you all how hard they die for the students of darkness. Therefore, they’ll now give you the chance to write music together with the band.
Now, in year 2010, it’s been ten years of dark explosive depravity. Looking back, it was just minutes before witching hour on new year’s eve 1999 that Nightmare and Whiplasher sat down and decided to start a band which was totally over the top; a band without no barriers - mixing everything from pop to black metal. The idea was to make something unique; a band with no strings attached to any genre; a mix between darkness, sex, power and guitars; a forum where songs were the important thing (and good looks). It was a plan of a sophisticated hall where the songs were the essence – not the obligations to be a part of a scene. They simply wanted to do something that was inspiring, for themselves as well as the crowd. Something new. They decided to call it Deathstars. You might better know it as intercourse. Anyway…
Let’s celebrate ten years of Scandinavian darkness
This is it: The band will release a special edition of Night Electric Night featuring over 60 minutes of unreleased material including songs that didn't make it on the albums, the very first Deathstars demo from 2000 and a fresh batch of unreleased remixes done by some of the coolest people in the scene. This edition reaches out to all the people that have made the band to who they are today. On this unique feature they want your personal interpretations of three chosen songs, and the winners will be presented and released on the jubilée-album. The band give you the oppurtunity to remix Deathstars’ songs!
The hits of choice are one from each album:
1. The New Dead Nation – Synthetic Generation
2. The Last Ammunition – Termination Bliss
3. The Fuel Ignites – Night Electric Night
Whiplasher comments on the matter:
”Choose wisely, boys and girls. It’s a once in a lifetime chance. Hard and intelligent work will be rewarded, so put your heart into it (but we are of course open for generous bribes). We wish you the best of luck.
Me, Night, Skinny, Cat and Bone will sit down as the jury itself and listen through everything that get sent to us, and choose the winners. The best remixes will be featured on the exclusive release ’Night Electric Night – Platinum Edition’ out on Nuclear Blast 2010. We are very delighted to finally be able to give our fans the oppurtunity to be a true part of the band and of the anniversary-album.
Ask not what Deathglam can do for you, ask what you can do for Deathglam.
The fans are the band. We are you. Now go to work!”
Multi track versions of the songs can be downloaded from:

People who have bought tickets should contact the promotor to get a refund.
Gemini Five will be the support for the show at Strand, Stockholm
Swedish companions Gemini Five will support Deathstars on the Stockholm show the 29th of October at Strand.
Due to a severe case of "tennis elbow" (caused by tennis for sure) Bone is forced to leave the ongoing Into Darkness Festival to give his arm some rest after this years extensive touring. Yesterday in Frankfurt we unfortunately had to shorten the set because of Bone being physically unable to perform any longer. We apologise for the shortened set time but the only other option would have been to cancel the show completely. Still Bone deserves an applause for performing these 45 minutes in severe pain just for all the people who were there.
The tour will however go on, we have flown in our old friend Oscar (Thunder) de la Renta from the band Crescendolls that helped us out at a few shows a couple of years ago. We will spend the whole day rehearsing with Oscar to make sure we can give everybody the best show possible tonight. Bone is sticking around for a few extra days just to make sure that Oskar will deliver the goods to his satisfaction before he will go back to Sweden.
Brütal Legend feat. Deathstars
In the game, Jack Black stars as Eddie Riggs, a roadie who's sucked into a mythical Age of Rock to fight evil.
