Ventura, CA-based Stockholm-styled Death Metallers, FATALIST, have released a video for the sone ‘Frozen Epitaph’ from their Ibex Moon Records debut, "The Depths Of Inhumanity". Guitarist / vocalist Neil Burkdoll had the following to say about the video, which can be viewed here: "So here is our video for ‘Frozen Epitaph’. The song is from our recently released album "The Depths Of Inhumanity" on Ibex Moon Records. This video was made to promote the European release of our album on January 19th, 2010. It was a lot of hard work and it was totally low budget, but we think it does the job. Shooting this video was the first time the 4 of us were even in the same room for at least 6 months and it was probably the last time as well. We want to thank Frank Boross and Rachel Burkdoll for all of the work they put into making this video a reality. Also a special thanks to John from Ibex Moon for funding the project. Now go and watch this fucking video!!!" In other news, FATALIST recently parted ways with Wes Caley and Tyler Castro. FATALIST is now looking for a full time singer. You can contact the band through their myspace site www.myspace.com/fatalist666 for more info.
The following news we just received from APOKALYPTIC RAIDS‘ frontman Leon Manssur: "Our 4th album is already recorded. We are now mastering and doing the cover layout. It was delayed due to some private problems, but now things are being sorted out… We had a lineup change (drummer) in 2007, a Brazilian tour in 2008, and since then lots of gigs, more than 30 shows in 2 years was way beyond what we used to do. In 2009, we started going after some endorsements besides recording our 4th album. We have a new website online, www.apokalypticraids.com. It has a blog where we are trying to keep up with news and a webstore, and I’m working on a photo album of our 10+ year history… Aside from the new album, we recorded some extra tracks, and we plan to release some split eps in the near future…"
