Florida’s BRUTALITY is back! We just got the following info first hand from Jeff Acres: "The band has reformed and is working on a new album. I wanted to set things straight about the crap that went down in 2003. We never wanted to let those tapes get out. It was shit and one of the members who is no longer in the band sent them out without the rest of us knowing. The stuff we are doing now is so much better than that bullshit, more on the lines of "Screams Of Anguish". I want everbody to know the truth. Thanks."
The NOCTURNAL "Arrival Of The Carnivore" 12" Picture Disc will be released within less than 14 days. Originally released by From Beyond Productions on CD and Deathstrike Records on vinyl, you now will have the change to get a very noble looking 12" Picture Disc within a cover-jacket.
