UPDATES: New Fan Art and the first Battery 9 WinAMP Skin all submitted by KopRaas.
REQUEST: I'm trying to expand the info on compilation albums, if you have full track listings, cover scans or anything else of interest, drop me a line.
NEWS: Paul has been busy with a lot of mixing and stuff, he's busy doing some music for Duty Calls on M-net Opentime (Sundays 6pm). I'll see if i can organise some samples, but it's gets a bit sticky with regards to rights of the final product. I still owe you all some Wrok lyrics. I've done the first part in HTML, but i'm still waiting for the translations from Paul so i can upload the final product (plus i have to scratch through a pile of stiffys to find the disk i saved it on - oh crap). I'm sorry this site is not being updated regularly, but things have been really hectic with work etc (blah blah). If you think you can help out with gathering info, articles, pics, anything interesting or whatever else. Drop me a mail, after all it's the fans that make or break a band ;)
Paul has sent me the Wrok lyrics, i'll try and have them up by the end of the month.
NEWS: Screaming machine turned 2 somewhere in December. Hip Hip Horay, hopefully there will be many more. Oh yes and happy new year!

Thanks to www.samusic.co.za for some of the info.
If you are looking for Battery 9 or any other Music, go visit www.subterania.co.za. They stock some very rare Industrial and Goth, but also have Alterantive Rock and Metal. I helped with the web design, so check it out.
There have been some changes to the band line up At and Arnaud have left. They have been replaced by Jonathan Neaves (live drummer) and André v Rensburg (Guitar). The new reformed Battery 9 should start playing at some large festivals somtime September/October. There is some new material in the works too.
No more news on the Battery 9 video collection. I'd really like this to see the light.
NOTE: The MP3 sound samples are currently down, due to limited space. I am busy finding a reliable free mirror site.
