The city of Halifax is cracking down on postering. Apparently, the cry-babies don't like it when bands and other telephone poll spammers try to promote their event using the only feasible and most effective method possible. Postering in Halifax can now earn you a $100 fine. Click here for the article in The Chronicle Herald (a Halifax newspaper).

There's another show to announce. Dichotic will play on Saturday, October 28th with Burning Moon, Hellacaust and Pretty Noise at the Pavilion all-ages club in Halifax. It
should be the typical situation: show starts at 8PM and admission will be $6 ($5 with a Pavilion concert listing). Given the show's proximity to Halloween, you can expect an extra level of zaniness from everyone involved. Also, local speed metallers Terratomb are playing at Cafe Mokka (in Halifax) later that same evening. The real hardcores will attend both shows.

Dichotic is pleased to announce that they will participate in the 7th annual Gobblefest festival on Friday, October 6th in Sydney, Nova Scotia. It will
be Dichotic's first ever appearance in the Cape Breton region. The details are still being worked out, but Dichotic will likely headline with Terratomb and a few other bands yet to be revealed. Currently, Dichotic is working on new material for what will be their third release (yikes!). The CD will be ready in the latter half of 2001 if all goes well.
Meanwhile, label mates Cephalectomy are very close to finishing work on their debut CD. Only the artwork and multimedia stuff remains to be finalized. As usual, it's the non-music related content that is holding things up. Not to worry though, the CD will be released soon enough.

release Sign Of Chaos are now available
from MP3.com. Fans of
the band are well-advised to check out the new material.

first two mixes were not acceptable, so Cephalectomy will spend the
rest of the summer re-mixing the tracks. If all goes well, Sign Of Chaos could be available by September or
In other news, Dichotic has been
writing new material. Two new songs have pretty much been completed,
