They were one of my favorite bands at the fest and an obvious crowd favorite as well. The return of Gorgasm will be felt around the world!"

Gorgasm drummer Kyle Christman adds: "I have always been a huge fan of Gorgasm myself, and I'm stoked as fuck to be a part of this. We as a whole have been working quietly at this for a while. We are excited to finally officially announce the news, and we're stoked about signing to Brutal Bands and entering the studio at last. We feel that this is our most brutal material yet, and long time fans won't be let down."

Shiven Records Updates On Gorgasm, etc.

Luke from Shiven Records has posted the following update on their bands:

"Things are running full force. Gorgasm, Ekser, and Arbiter of Conceit are all in pre-production for new full lengths which will see release dates by the end of summer/early fall. And I can say that all of the new material from these guys is absolutely punishing. Definitely going to be must have records for any fan of heavy music. Gorgasm is going to be playing a few shows in the upcoming months most notably the Deathfeast Open Air festival in Germany and the Central Illinois Metal fest. In Germany you will see Gorgasm pulverize the stage along the likes of NAPALM DEATH, IMMOLATION, ABORTED, and many other completely punishing metal acts. In Illinois, Matt Bishop has put together a lineup that is goddamned near unstoppable. Gorgasm will be sharing the stage with VITAL REMAINS, IMPETIGO, MORTICIAN, SEVERED SAVIOR, and tons more so show up early, leave late, and support these guys."

Gorgasm To Enter Studio In July

Chicago-based based brutal death metallers GORGASM recently inked a deal with Shiven Records for a multi-project deal that will include a concert DVD, movie, re-releases from GORGASM's cellar and all-new merchandise. According to the label, "the DVD is going to have lots of extras, including footage from the actual recording of the new album, as well as live footage [from] European and U.S. fests! The guys are also going to be working on a music video soon! New bass player/vocalist will be announced soon."

Commented GORGASM drummer Tomasz Pilasiewicz: "We are very excited about our recent signing with Shiven Records. There's definitely going to be a lot of good things happening with GORGASM in '07. We are planning to enter the studio in July and have the album out by the end of October. We'll be appearing at couple of major U.S. and European fest and a full U.S./Canada/Mexico tour is being scheduled for the end of October — can't say with who at this moment, but it will be a kick-ass tour! New album is almost fully written. Personally, I think it will be the most complex, yet most 'catchy' GORGASM release so far. We have performed couple of new songs at some of our shows and crowd just went nuts!!! So, we will see if people will dig the whole alblum."

Maryland Death Fest Loses Two, Adds Five Bands

Two bands have dropped off next year's Maryland Death Fest, scheduled to take place May 27th and 28th 2006 at The Sonar in Baltimore, MD. Those bands are FISTFUCK and FRIGHTMARE. The following explanation has been posted on the Maryland Death Fest website:

"A band member in FISTFUCK had a personal matter come up and won't be able to travel to the US next May. It is not the bands fault, nor is it ours. The band has stated they will play shows in the US as soon as it is possible again.

Also, although FRIGHTMARE was the first band we confirmed for MDF IV, they have canceled. Now they don't want to make their appearance exclusive to MDF and that's the only explanation we can provide you. As frustrating as this for us, that's all we're going to say. "

The following five bands have been added, in addition to replacing FRIGHTMARE and FISTFUCK:

CLITEATER (Netherlands)
ROMPEPROP (Netherlands)

They join the following list of previously confirmed bands: More...

Featuring former members of Cattle Press, Dim Mak, Ripping Corpse, and Hemlock, the sophomore album from TDL, titled "The Killing Plan," will be issued on July 26th. "The Killing Plan" was recorded and produced by Eric Rutan at his Mana Recording Studios in Florida.

Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, instrumental gurus Electro Quarterstaff are also a new addition to the Willowtip roster. The band is currently finishing the writing of their full-length which will be recorded later this year. You can check out their website demo material.

Grind outfit Kill The Client are yet another band to be added to the Willowtip roster. The band is currently working on new material that will be released on their debut full-length for Willowtip, expected to be recorded in June. Kill the Client will also be appearing at this year's Mayland Deathfest, Boston Doom and Grind Fest, and on a number of dates with Internal Bleeding and Bodies in the Gears of the Apparatus. For more information and MP3s from the band, check out their website here.

Finally, grindcore band Phobia are another new addition to the Willowtip line-up. With a slew of releases under their belt on many different labels, including Relapse Records, Necropolis Records, Deep Six Records, and more, states Willowip: "Phobia have established themselves as one of the greatest and most respected grindcore bands in the world." The group is currently on a West Coast tour with Rotten Sound and are still writing material for their latest full-length, which will hit streets later this year.
