Former DEATH/MASSACRE frontman Kam Lee has issued the following update:
"The rumors are true...
"Some of you have written me asking about the rumors of 'other' bands that I may be involved in this upcoming year. Other then DENIAL FIEND...
"Yes, the rumors are true! Not only will DENIAL FIEND record and release our debut album, 'They Rise', for Ibex Moon Records, but hopefully later will see the release of the SHADOWS WITH KNIVES EP, as well on Ibex Moon. SHADOWS WITH KNIVES is old-school style heavy metal mixed with death metal-style vokills. Like listening to those old metal bands like TROUBLE, TANK, WITCHFINDER GENERAL, MERCYFUL FATE, IRON MAIDEN, and BLACK SABBATH, only with the death grunt of me as well as the grindcore growls of Mark Odechuck of PAINEATER!
"Also... Yes, I am working with Matt Olivo of REPULSION on a new project now tentatively called: MONSTERSHOCK! This is currently in the now, and the band will be old-school death metal/grindcore in the same vein as early DEATH and REPULSION!
"And yes, too... I've been asked to lend my vokill talents for the new HATEPLOW album! I've been speaking with Phil [Fasciana] of MALEVOLENT CREATION, and he is gearing up to do the most hate-filled HATEPLOW album ever, and he has asked me to join in on the foul dark hatred!!
"So yes, I am planning on the year of 2007 to be a busy-ass year! But I'm willing to give 100% into bringing you the 'fans' the most insane, cult, sick-ass vokills you'll ever hear!!!"
Guitarist Matt Olivo of the reunited death metal/grindcore pioneers REPULSION has issued the following update on the band's current activities:
"Scott Carlson [bass, vocals] has recorded vocals for Nicke Andersson's [ex-ENTOMBED, currently in THE HELLACOPTERS] DEATH BREATH project. This album will be fucking badass for all of you old schoolers out there....heavy, fucking raw ass death metal in the style of DEATH, REPULSION, BATHORY, VENOM, etc. Matt Olivo provided record engineering for Scott's vocal takes. Both Scott and I are very proud to be a part of this project and look forward to its success.
"New kids CRETIN have an album recently released. This slab is indeed the sickest, rawest, fastest shit to hit human ears since 'Horrified'. Pick it up or die! The group features Col Jones (EXHUMED, DEKAPITATOR, REPULSION), Matthew Widener and Dan Martinez.
"Matt Harvey's side project DEKAPITATOR has finished recording a new album. They're current shopping it around for a fall release. Let's keep our swords crossed for these true metal brothers!
"DEJECTA's recording of CELTIC FROST's 'Visions of Mortality' is featured on CF's webpage tribute page.
"On the DVD front we have made progress with our legal issues and continue to push to release this thing [as soon as possible]!"
REPULSION's upcoming DVD, "Necrothology: Vomitus Visions from the Vault", will feature cover artwork by Stefan Thanneu.
