Cleveland, Ohio’s Death / Grinders EMBALMER are currently writing material for their next full length album, to be entitled "The Apocalyptic Bloodshower" (label tba). According to the band "the new material is spewing out sicker than ever, and sounding way more intense and brutal than any of the previous stuff." The album is announced as being a return to the classick elements of their "Rotting Remains" and "There Was Blood Everywhere" releases of the ’90s, "but with faster, face peeling grinds, a heavier overall sound / production, and all the trademark brutal and tortured vocals that gave the band a great buzz in the mid ’90s, leading to their previous deal with Relapse Records." EMBALER have just released a brand new "2009 Promo II" that will be shopped to labels, and also be available for free through the band’s myspace site www.myspace.com/embalmerband. The material originally appeared on their 2009 promo, but it got completely re-mixed / mastered with brand new vocals and other improvements. These tracks will also appear on a split 7" EP with Regurgitation (OH), to be released by Goatgrind Records later this year. The Regurgitation side will feature a song from their previously unreleased "Clitoraldectomy" EP to be out on on CD through Comatose Music this year. The EPs will be limited to 350 hand-numbered copies on green vinyl. Also, EMBALMER will be releasing a 12" LP version of the "Into The Oven" demo and the ’92 "Taxidermist" tape through Hells Headbangers. You can expect expanded layout with plenty of old photos / show flyers / ads, etc. The band has also just released some new "Limbs In The Grinder" hoodies through Gorefiend Merch (www.gorefiendmerch.com) and also agreed for the release of full color "13 Faces Of Death" short- and longsleeve shirts, that will feature a totally updated design with full sleeve-prints and the original artwork by Mike Majewski.
