THE GREAT DECEIVER have been announced as the main support for Napalm Death on a 17 date tour around Europe, they miss the three Finnish dates and join the tour on the 1st December in Germany. After Christmas The Great Deceiver will enter the studio to record the follow up to the highly acclaimed debut album "A Venom Well Designed". This time the band have chosen to work at Dug Out in Uppsalla. Daniel Bergstrand, famed for his work with Strapping Young Lad, Meshuggah, In Flames and Darkane will produce the album with the band. The Swedes even have a working title for the new album – "Terror Incognito", taken from Proust’s In Search Of Lost Time.
Earache Records have signed DEICIDE! US boss Al Dawson had this to say about the signing: "I am very proud to be working with Deicide, ‘the most evil band in the world.’ These guys have stood the test of time and they continue to lead the way. They are the real deal. Earache’s roster has never been stronger than it is today."
SATYRICON have cancelled their one and only Germany show, which was supposed to take place at the "Markthalle" in Hamburg on December 10, 2002. Due to differences between the European agent and the band it remains uncertain at this point of time whether or not there will be new dates in the coming year. We’ll keep you posted.
