Danish Death / Thrashers URKRAFT will be the main support for Cannibal Corpse on their upcoming European tour. Urkraft vocalist Thomas Pederson had this to say about the news: "We are looking forward to hitting the venues with Cannibal Corpse and just getting out on the road and showing what we are made of. We have been waiting for a long time since the release of "The Inhuman Aberration" and it will be cool to get out there and show what we are made of and seeing people join in the inhuman slaughter that we will be sending out from the stage…"
"How The World Came To An End" is set as the title for the upcoming MANES album. It’s due out 16th of April 2007 via Candlelight Records in Europe (US release date tba). "How The World Came To An End" has been recorded at Spiren, Cernobyl and Skansen Studios under skillful supervision by producers Rune Stavnesli and Stein E. Bratland. The coverdesign is handled by the Norwegian designers Trineog Kim who has earlier done coverdesign for Ulver, Ephel Duath, Solefald, Ihsahn and more.
