FURBOWL has been offered to re-record and release old unreleased songs. Max Thornell (drums) has been in touch with Niclas Stenemo (guitar) and he’s totally into the idea. This means, the classic "Autumn Years" line-up will go to some studio and kick some old shit out of these tunes. Johan Liiva (aka. Axelsson) is looking forward to it – a brand new FURBOWL album.
Well-known through their earlier full lengths on Osmose Records and their impressive live rituals, CIRITH GORGOR found a new home with Displeased Records to work on new material with a renewed line-up. For more information check out www.cirithgorgor.nl
US Black Death occultists ACHERON will enter Mars Recording Compound (INCANTATION, EARTH CRISIS, RINGWORM) for the recordings of their seventh studio full length. For more info go to www.acheron666.com
The recordings for the yet untitled new full length of California Death Grinders SEPSISM have been completed. Currently Tony Koehl (INTERNAL SUFFERING, MALIGNANCY, GORATORY) is working on the layout. The album will be released in early 2009.
Even though bassplayer Tony passed away on August 1st, AGATHOCLES will continue on as a 2-piece and play the planned gigs, like Grind Over Rotterdam at the Baroeg on September 14th. Their upcoming full length is now finalized and will be issued on November 15th. www.agathocles.com
After a long search, NOCTURNAL finally found a new vocalist in Tyrannizer, who previously has been active in NECROSADISTIC GOAT TORTURE from the UK. NOCTURNAL have re-recorded ‘Temples Of Sin’ which can be checked out at NOCTURNAL’s myspace profile www.myspace.com/nocturnalthrash
RESISTANCE from Strasbourg / France recently parted ways with their drummer Marc, who’s going his own way right now. That’s why the band is currently looking for a replacement. So, if you’re from the Kehl / Offenburg area in Germany, if you like good old Thrash Metal and if you are able to play fast, but with the right feeling, you should get in touch with the guys, either through their myspace site www.myspace.com/resistance667 or via this email address: email@example.com. RESISTANCE is about to release a new song on a vinyl only compilation called "Long Live Metal!!! – Acte Premier" which is coming out in October on the French label Emanes Metal (Lord, Bottle doom lazy band, Thrustor, Rising Dust, ADX). Later this year or in early 2009 Emanes Metal (in co-operation with the Metal Forces Festival from Lörrach is also going to release a RESISTANCE split EP with HIRAX.
