Brazil’s TORTURE SQUAD are currently in studio, recording their 4th album, that should be out early 2003. The band just finished a successful Brazilian tour and is planning to head off for Europe in 2003. All interested promoters, clubs, bands and agencies should contact: firstname.lastname@example.org to set up some shows.
Guitarist Heter isn’t a member of Poland’s DISSENTER anymore. Here’s some comments from drummer Mlody regarding the split-up: "We had some problems with him during the Thrash’em All Festival. Firstly he told us that he isn’t going to play on the tour and joined the band only from the fourth day. After that, we have been forced to cancel our tour through Holland, because of the same reason. Heter informed us at the last moment and there was little time to find a replacement. Due to that we’ve decided to kick him out. It’s a pity after all these years of our cooperation…" DISSENTER is currently working on new material with a new member. New recordings are planned for February 2003 at Hertz Studio once again, while the first shows won’t take place before next summer. www.dissenter.prv.pl
