Dutch Death Metal maniacs SEVERE TORTURE are banned from the stages in Switzerland. The band was scheduled to play in the Z7 venue in Switzerland on their upcoming European tour as support for Cannibal Corpse. Official reason for this ban is the (according to the local promoter) perverse, disgusting and very offensive cover artwork of their new album "Misanthropic Carnage", which (also according to the local promoter) shows a total lack of respect for other human beings. Severe Torture hereby appologizes to their Swiss fans and they hope to play in Switzerland soon! On top of that the normal album-version got censored for the official shop distribution in Germany. So for Germany the album is available in a limited edition with censored cover artwork.
The new NEFAS CD "Seven Times Seven" will be out in Sept. / Oct. on Bones Brigade (http://bones.brigade.free.fr)
