DEICIDE have declared 6.6.06 as the release date for their upcoming album "The Stench Of Redemption". The album is currently in the preliminary stages as the band is gearing up to enter the studios with Jim Morris of Morrisound. They have demoed 10 songs which Glen Benton is locked away with, preparing his signature twisted lyrics to coincide with the brutally heavy tracks. Benton has reported that this is one of the best Death Metal albums in years. Initially, he said that the album had Earache head Digby Pearson banging his head and jumping up and down like a young Metalhead. Following the release of "The Stench Of Redemption" a full European tour is planned.
ANATA bassist Henrik Drake checks in to update us about the Swedish outfits upcoming new offering "The Conductor’s Departure" as well as their confirmed appearance at this year’s Maryland Deathfest. Here’s some news from ANATA at the moment: "We are rehearsing some new songs for an upcoming album, the writing process is going really well and inspiring and the songs are fast, brutal, complex, mixed with more melodic parts. We are also currently working on getting a cover artwork for our forthcoming new album "The Conductor’s Departure", based on the theme of the lyrics. We are really looking forward to the Maryland Deathfest gig. We will play songs from all of our full-length albums (including new tracks from "The Conductor’s Departure"). We are also rehearsing a live-set for upcoming gigs and tours which we are looking into to tie in with the new albums release. Once we have more news we will let you know!" The Maryland Deathfest is about to take place May 27 – 28, 2006 at the Sonar in Baltimore, USA.
