To coincide with the release the band has struck out on a North American tour with MASTER and labelmates DREAMING DEAD. Guitarist Alex Bouks offers these words in regards to what promises to be the summer of brutality: "We are excited to unleash our Dark Metal magick across the U.S. after all these years.The tour will coincide with the release our new record "Mortal Repulsion". We will be showcasing our brand of dark, blackened Heavy Metal . Jim, Chris and myself are looking forward to see all you Metal tyrants on the road."

Brazil’s IMPETUOUS RAGE have changed their name into POISONOUS. Drummer Alex Rocha commented this as follows: "It’s another band, the sound is different. Now we are more obscure… We continue to play Metal of Death, but more impure, profane and evil!" According to their official press release the band is musically now a lot more influenced by classic albums such as "Hell Awaits", "Seven Churches", "Mental Funeral" and "Dawn Of Possession". Next to Alex the POISONOUS line-up consists of Michael Hellriff (guitar & vocals), E.Evil (bass) and Fabio Ramos (guitar). A new demo, featuring three songs, will be released shortly.
