Man Must Die's Danny McNab commented on the new album:
"At last we feel Man Must Die have arrived - on all fronts, this is the album which we always knew we had in us, and we are super happy at the finished article. No Tolerance For Imperfection was recorded with painful precision and effort, we all sweated blood for this CD and cant wait to get this beast out. Every song has its own story and feel, lyrical concepts are as powerful as the music and this album is the first to feature new drummer Matt Holland, who has added some serious spice to the MMD sound. We are super psyched about getting it out and hitting the road to back it up, and cant wait for you all to hear it. Let the blasts commence..."

Glasgow, Scotland's MAN MUST DIE has entered the studio to begin recording the follow-up to their Relapse debut, "The Human Condition." This brand new album, "No Tolerance For Imperfection," is being recorded at Grindstone Studios in the UK with producer Scott Atkins.
MAN MUST DIE's Danny McNab commented on the new album: "With 11 songs, full to the brim with anger, heaviness and melodic hooks, MMD cannot wait to unleash this new slab of aural assault and hit the road to promote NTFI. We are really psyched about the new record, its like we are a new band with a new found passion for the extreme, we cannot wait to get on the road again and show what MMD are all about. We really think fans old and new will love 'No Tolerance for Imperfection' - it's pure MMD but with some new twists and turns, and definitely a new level of intensity. Expect No Tolerance for Imperfection to be out around April 2009."
With "No Tolerance For Imperfection," MAN MUST DIE also introduces brand new drummer Matt Holland to the fold. "With Matt as the immense new sticksman behind the blasts at the Man Must Die camp, it ushers in a new era of intensity and rage!"

Bolt Thrower has released this bit of news regarding their first trip to the USA in 14 years:
"Due to the fact that we are not real festival lovers or great fans of flying, the chances of us ever coming to the States for a one-off show was always very small. But after years of relentless emails from Ryan we've finally given in. It's hard to believe that it's been 14 years since we last played in the US, so we are very happy to announce that we are finally coming back. Bolt Thrower will be playing Maryland Deathfest VII, on May 22-24, 2009, at Sonar, Baltimore, MD."
A few more bands were exected to be included in this announcement, but the organizers are still working on the details. Therefore, another announcement is expected with even more band confirmations in the near future, as they wrap up the booking process for Maryland Deathfest 2009

THE BERZERKER and Italy's seminal EPHEL DUATH are set to reap extreme carnage on DAMNATION FESTIVAL in Manchester come October 15th 2006. They'll be joined by MADMAN IS ABSOLUTE and MAN MUST DIE on the phenomenal Terrorizer Stage - and with AXIS OF PERDITION already confirmed, the line-up is shaping up to be the UK's finest bill of extreme metal noise in 2006.
Having shed their gruesome face masks, The Berzerker are ready to show Manchester just how serious they are - expect punishing noise as Luke Kenny and co. bring their "World of Lies" album to life in a death metal frenzy that'll guarantee a "last man standing" mindset in the Damnation moshpit.
Blending, somehow perfectly, both jazz and black metal, Ephel Duath have for years delighted Italian home crowds and European metal fans alike - their addition, a UK festival exclusive, highlights the wide variety of extreme noise that Damnation aims to forcefully inject into Manchester's music scene come October 15th 2006.
Guitarist Davide Tiso says the band "invite Manchester to join the asynchronous dance."
Madman Is Absolute, meanwhile, promise "Full on pit mayhem orchestrated by four angry Scotsmen - Manchester will be reduced to ruins!" - a sentiment echoed by fellow countrymen Man Must Die, who simply said "Let's make this one festival to remember. You want extreme, you got it!"
While Satan's favourites do the dirty deed downstairs, the Jagermeister stage of Jilly's Rockworld will play host to STAMPIN' GROUND, BIOMECHANICAL, SEND MORE PARAMEDICS and MURDER ONE, along with serious UK talent in the shape of muscle monsters HEAD-ON, thrashers EVILE and London lads KINGSIZE BLUES.
Festival spokesman, Gavin McInally, said: "The Bezerker, Ephel Duath, Stampin' Ground, Murder One, Biomechanical, Send More Paramedics and both headliners still to be announced... no self-respecting metaller can afford to miss this feast of extreme music!"
TICKETS for the second installment of UK-focused metal will go on sale APRIL 3rd, priced £15, and will be available from Ticketline, Seetickets, and direct from Jilly's Rockworld and Music Box. For further information about the event visit damnationfestival.co.uk or e-mail email@example.com.
