After years of personal and line-up problems, Peru’s GOAT SEMEN are in preparation for their debut full length studio album for From Beyond Productions / Displeased Records. The band will enter the studio to record a promo with the newly written and rehearsed tracks later this month, with the actual studio album to be recorded right after summer 2008.
German Thrashers NOCTURNAL just returned from a small European tour to focus on their new album with new vocalist Reaper (OLD), to be recorded during late summer 2008.
After their succesful Latin America tour late last year, AGATHOCLES have been busy writing and rehearsing new material for a new full length for Displeased Records, to be recorded next month.
OFFICIUM TRISTE have just announced another line-up change through their website: "After much thought Martin has decided to quit drumming and start focusing on the synth-parts. As one of the main composers he has always had a big influence on the music and especially the synths. He’ll keep on writing music as well. His decision has a lot to do with the fact he’s living in Germany and he feels he cannot deliver what is needed for the band when talking about rehearsing and doing live gigs. This will give the band much more opportunities and we’re happy to see Martin in this setting. We are also very happy to announce that all drum duties will be taken over by Ronald Lagerwaard (ex-Imbolc, Absent Mind, Perpetual Misery). He has proven to be a great drummer and is very motivated to be part of the tight rhythm section for OFFICIUM TRISTE."
