17/12/2012 - Antipope recording a new album

27/11/2012 - To a Passer-by in Black music video released
Greetings!

As the November is finally over, as some might say, we're closing in on celebrating the first anniversay of the release of House of Harlot album. For this special occasion we wanted to present you something special. So here is a new music video for one, if not the best, songs from House of Harlot, "To a Passer-by in Black".

To a Passer-by in Black in YouTube.

Cheers!
26/09/2012 - Antipope finds a new bass player (in a way)
Mikko Myllykangas, also know as the lead vocalist of the band whose website you are browsing currently, has taken up the bass duties of the band mentioned previously.

Cheers!
23/08/2012 - Antipope parts ways with bass player
Antipope and bass player Santtu Heinilehto have parted the ways after eight years. The decision was made by mutual agreement with absolutely no drama involved.

The reason behind the departure of Santtu was his loss of interest in playing and in music in general, and a wish to direct his energy to other aspects of life.

Mikko's statement on behalf of the band:
"It is of course a sad moment when someone you have played and created music with for 20 years decides to quite. But more important than keeping on doing things just for the sake of the tradition is to stay true to yourself. Only by being honest with what you do, you can be true to others around you and also evolve as a person. As everyone knows, music is such an intuitive experience that you cannot partake the creation of it if you are not there with every cell of your being, not at least on the level Antipope operates. Personally, I wish very best for Santtu, who besides playing bass in Antipope, has been a friend for over 20 years."

Antipope will continue its unscrupulous existence as a quartet.

Meanwhile, Antipope has been working on the follow-up to last years "House of Harlot" album. The recording of the album is well on the way and the band expects a release in early 2013.

21/04/2011 - A statement concerning the up-coming album from the band
An official statement from the band concerning the upcoming full-length album:

During March 2011 we finished recording the instrumentation for the follow-up to Desert. This is going to be something totally different from Desert, yet very Antipopish in it\'s character. Once again, we couldn\'t care less what kind of music is expected from a band that is mainly labeled as a metal act. Those who have followed our undertakings through the years will be positively surprised by our new material. Or not. Vocals will be recorded in July and some kind of a promotional release through internet is planned for August.

29/07/2009 - Summer 2009 update from the band
Greetings.
Instead of holidaying we have managed to keep ourselves quite busy in addition to the usual summer activities ie. going to festivals and so on.

Too long anticipated follow-up to "Chaosmos" is finally being prepared for release in both CD and online format. Entitle "Excessive Use of Faith" and carrying three songs of black heavy metal we feel that the up-coming EP is definitely the strongest work by the band so far - as it should be. Final release date is still obscure depending on how long it takes to get the records from pressing. Online release is planned to be around 13th of August.

Around the time of EUF being released we also take the stage once again. On Friday 14th of August we perform alongside Baptism and progressive black metal excellence Enochian Crescent at the official after party of Jalometalli 2009 festivals in Oulu, Finland.

Stay blasphemous!
-MM
