Its been a long time coming but HATE ETERNAL have confirmed that they will enter the studio to record the highly anticipated follow up to "Conquering The Throne". The band will record as a three piece, led by founder member Erik Rutan, complimented by Jared Anderson on bass and vocals and Derek Roddy on drums. The album will be titled "King Of All Kings" and will be recorded at Dimensional Sound Studio in Tampa, Florida, with sessions commencing March 1. Hate Eternal, despite Rutan’s amd Anderson’s committments with Morbid Angel, have promised full scale touring on both sides of the Atlantic once the album is released. In the meantime US fans can catch the fiercesome threesome at both the New England and New Jersey MetalFests in the coming weeks.
Australia’s Carcass-worshipping death-grind mutants THE BERZERKER have entered the studio, somehwere beneath the barren deserts of the Australian outback, to record the as-yet-untitled follow-up to their self-titled 2000 debut. For those of you who missed the band on their first US tour in Spring ’01 (with Dying Fetus, Gorguts, and Skinless), The Berzerker will be returning to America this summer for their second US tour.
