Deimos (bass) is no longer a member of BLOODY SIGN. Lead vocalist Hagend has taken over the bass duties (as well as still doing vocals). He has already played bass in previous bands so it was an obvious choice. The band will continue as a trio. Coming later this year BLOODY SIGN will also be doing a split EP with unholy Death gore Metallers RADEMASSAKER from Germany. This will be a split release between Ibex Moon Records and Redrum Records. Look out for BLOODY SIGN on tour in Eastern Europe with the Czech Black / Death Metal band AVENGER in April 2005. The tour will hit France, Germany, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, and Romania.
FUNERUS has returned from their "Festering the United States" Tour 2005. FUNERUS would like to send out a big thanks to all the Metallers that came out to the shows and showed support to the bands along with everyone that had made the tour possible. There are a few limited edition tour shirts still available. Visit the FUNERUS website for ordering info at: www.funerus.com
