Swedish BLOOD MORTIZED recently came along with the following news on their myspace site www.myspace.com/bloodmortized: "Blood Mortized are now ready to strike yet again. More music has been written and you can expect nothing but rotten to the core old school Death Metal. In the near future the band will hit Underworld Recording to record two brand new songs for a upcoming 7" EP. All of you old school Death Metal freaks surely know that the 7" vinyl EP is as Death Metal as it gets! We are now looking for a label that wants to work with us on this upcoming release. If you run a label and you are interested, contact us ASAP! We are also looking for a label interested in releasing the debut CD as a vinyl version. Likewise, if interested in releasing the debut as a vinyl: contact us ASAP!"
Brazilian Thrashers ANDRALLS have signed a deal for the worldwide release of their 4th studio album simply entitled "Andralls" through Xtreem Music. Originally released in summer of the same year only in Brazil, the band is now ready to hit the European continent for the 2nd time with an intensive tour of 25 dates during November and December 2009. The dates will be shortly posted on the band’s MySpace site www.myspace.com/andralls, where you can also hear some of the new songs. For a release scheduled by mid October, "Andralls" will include not only the 12 original tracks, but two live bonus on the Xtreem Music version.
Ireland’s FOR RUIN have released their second album "Last Light" – the album is available for Free Download (as well as on CD and high quality MP3) from the band’s newly relaunched website at www.forruin.com. The album will also be available through all major digital outlets (i-tunes etc.) soon but for now is available directly from the band. An Electronic Press Kit video for "Last Light" can be viewed here. The clip features interviews, recording footage and live footage and audio from "Last Light" and brand new digital EP "Enlightened". A brand new interview with the band can be found at www.metalireland.com. "Last Light" was recorded earlier this year with producer Alwyn Walker at Komodo Mobile Studios and it features artwork by Paul McCarroll who has previously worked with PRIMORDIAL, among others. The album features ten tracks of the band’s blend of melody, aggression, speed and strong guitar harmonies. "Last Light" was preceded by the release of a digital-only EP, "Enlightened", available from the band and shortly through CDBaby.
Reunited Swedish Death Metallers DESULTORY will begin recording for the yet-untitled brand new album in November. It will mark their first band effort in almost 14 years, since their last full-length album "Swallow The Snake" in 1996. Taking care of the production duties will be Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studio, Sweden (Watain, In Battle, Nominon, etc). DESULTORY lead guitar player Håkan Morberg commented on how the new album is shaping up to be: "The songs are a mix of fast and heavy melodic Death Metal with dark and melancholic lyrics, all in the true spirit of DESULTORY. The album will be a logical continuation of "Into Eternity" and "Bitterness" and will be a strong bridge linking the past to the present."
