FUNERUS will be playing some European festivals this summer. Here’s an official statements from bassist Jill McEntee on the festivals and the recording of the new album follow: "We are very happy to announce that FUNERUS will be playing some European festivals this summer. The band will be playing the Kaltenbach Open Air on July 15th in Steiermark, Austria, and July 16th at Obscene Extreme 2010, Trutnov, Czech Republic. We will bring the sewage! In other FUNERUS news, recording has been going well for our sophomore album. The new release will be titled "Reduced To Sludge". Anyone who was into "Festering Earth" will definitely like this follow up slab of sewage death! Hope to see a lot of you on the road in 2010!" www.myspace.com/funerus
Guitarist Daniel "Død" Olaisen of Norway’s BLOOD RED THRONE has posted the following update regarding the band’s current activities and line-up: "Cheers everybody. Some of you have noticed that Tchort has been away for a while and still are due to work and family commitments. Meanwhile, we’ve recruited Ivan Gujic from NEONGOD (www.myspace.com/neongodnorway) as his replacement for our upcoming live shows this year! Also, Anders decided to leave the band in February and after several auditions we’re proud to announce the young, but very talented Emil Wiksten from Sweden as our new killer drummer. Check out one of his videos here. I’ve also written 3 new tracks for our upcoming album and this time we’ll get back to the Altered Genesis style with fast and brutal shit and of course some groove as well!"
