Swedish THROWN have signed a deal with Iron Fist Productions. Their debut full length "The Suicidal Kings Occult" will first be released on CD, but there’s also plans that a vinyl version is about to follow next summer, depending on how good the CD sells. The CD is scheduled for a January / beginning of February 2007 release. The only thing that still has to be done is the layout for the booklet and the logo. The band has hired Erik Sahlström (MAZE OF TORMENT, ex – SERPENT OBSCENE, ex – DECEIVER) for this job. You can already check out soundfiles from the album here: www.myspace.com/thrownbitch
Earache label manager Dan Tobin commented on Jared Anderson‘s passing: ‘I think Erik Rutan has pretty much said it all when it comes to expressing the regret and shock at Jared’s passing. I only met the guy a couple of times when he came through the UK with Morbid Angel, but he struck me as a thoughtful and dedicated musician who was able to take on the challenges presented to him by both Hate Eternal and Morbid Angel. Particularly with Morbid Angel, he won over fans with his wholehearted commitment to the music and also the fans of the music. The response from the fans to the news of his death only goes to prove the positive impression he made on people.’
SEVERE TORTURE, currently on tour with Vader and God Dethroned, have been keeping a diary whilst out on the road. You can check it out at their myspace domain.
