After having tried out several new drummers, it seems CIRCLE OF DEAD CHILDREN will proceed with ex-Sadis Euphoria drummer Mike Bartek. Things are going good, but the band is still not closing the door for anyone who may want to come give it a try. Besides this, CODC started a side project called Sleepwalker, extreme heavy music, with already several songs written.

After lots of delays, From Beyond Productions will finally present GORETRADE‘s first full length album, which was recorded in NYC. The result is said to be along the lines of Devourment and early Fleshgrind.
INTERNAL SUFFERING‘s drummer has recently left the band due to personal issues. A replacement was soon found in Fabio, the band’s very first drummer (founder of Colombian band Carnal and nowadays also in Infernal Hate). Two weeks ago guitarist Leandro broke his arm. Still, Internal Suffering aims to be fully prepaired when they enter Mana Studios (with Erik Rutan) to record the follow up to last year’s "Chaotic Matrix".
From the ashes of now defunct outfit Murder Corporation arose KILLAMAN. With the same musical and lyrical intentions this brutal Swedish force keeps on pounding away groovy hard-hitting aggressive (Death / Thrash) Metal with hints of Crust and Punk. Their debut full length was recently recorded, mixed and mastered at the famous Berno Studios, and is set for a November 28th release. The band features members of Deranged and Reclusion.
While KRIEG‘s Imperial is finishing the vocal part for his side of the upcoming (December 28th) limited 666 split 10"EP, the Azaghal members already handed over the finished tracks for the release.

NUCLEAR DEATH are among the most extreme Metal acts that infested the underground with their hideous chaotic releases in the late 1980s and early 1990s. After their much praised second full length the band started recording what was to become their third full length, yet due to mysterious circumstances the recordings were never released. Up ’til recently, when US based label Extremist re-issued these fantastic raw recordings, together with rare EP tracks done in 1993. Both recording sessions will now also be released by From Beyond Productions on limited vinyl, with alternative artwork (done by Lori / vo-kills!) in January 2004.
