Drummer Dennis Röndum of the Swedish technical death metal outfit SPAWN OF POSSESSION has announced his departure from the band. His statement on the matter reads as follows:
"After 10 years in SPAWN OF POSSESSION I have decided to move on and attempt other challenges in life. My reasons for leaving the band are various but the one most notable is my lack of interest in drumming as of late, where I feel I don't have the dedication to be an extreme metal drummer anymore. My interest in music [is] still there but my drive to play blast beats is lost.
"I wish to send out a big thanx to all the fans and other bands I've had the pleasure to encounter on the road while touring with SPAWN OF POSSESSION. You all made it worthwhile. I sincerely wish the guys in SPAWN OF POSSESSION the best of luck in the future and I look forward to new sick tunes from the band."
SPAWN OF POSSESSION's sophomore album, "Noctambulant", was released last year via Neurotic Records. The CD was recorded at Pama Studios in Kristianopel, Sweden with producer Magnus Sedenberg.
Gorgoth of Vanmakt has sent in the following update:
"As you all might know now Vanmakt is releasing the debut album "Vredskapta Mörkersagor" on Pulverised Records in a couple of months. Were only awaiting the booklet layout from Jeremy at Gojira Design before we can get a final release date. Everything else is finished and I got the reference Cd from Peter In De Betou today and well, the album sounds incredibly good! Peter has given the album another dimension and I'm totally blown away when I compare my mix and his final mastering! Your going to hear it soon, that's a promise! But more about that later, the reason for this update is simple, I want to give you guys the final track list and this is how it looks!"

"I would like to tell you all about my other project "Nidrike" as well, where I'm joined by Gjallar from Skald, At Dawn as the main lyrical writer.

The 11th edition of the Brutal Assault festival is scheduled for August 10th - 12th in Svojsice U Prelouce (100 km east of Prague), Czech Republic.
Organizers have issued the following update:
This year’s event promises more impressive expansion and confirms that the organizers don’t intend to stagnate. On the contrary, from year to year, the festival’s program is more and more various and promises more and more foreign metal crowd-pullers for the fans of promiscuous extreme genres. Thanks to the participation of many first-rate metal bands, this event aspires to become a major metal festival in central Europe.
It’s difficult to say which band can be branded as the headliner because this year’s lineup offers up several giants of the metal genre.
Great attraction, especially for fans of atmospheric or symphonic black metal are Norwegians black metal gurus DIMMU BORGIR. In their case we can look for a frosty and dark concert experience.
The next exclusive guest comes from the USA. FEAR FACTORY, who were well known as a representatives of dehumanized cyber metal, but nowadays they come with a new actual face of the year 2006. More...
German death metallers FALL OF SERENITY have issued the following statement explaining their decision to drop off the European tour with HATE ETERNAL, SPAWN OF POSSESSION and SHADOWSLAND:
"So we are not on tour with the cool people of HATE ETERNAL, SPAWN OF POSSESSION and SHADOWSLAND anymore. We were forced to do this decision together with our label and our management, because there went a lot of things just badly wrong. To put it together, the organisation and management of this tour messed up our intended goal to do promotion for our new album 'Bloodred Salvation'. It was almost impossible. So it is a decision that is better for our band. We know that Metallysee [booking agency] is a good partner concerning tours, but in this case something doesn't fit together in the right way. Maybe because some other booking agency set up this tour.
"We feel very sorry to disappoint you guys who wanted to see FALL OF SERENITY on this tour. Take the next chance please. To make it clear, there is nothing wrong with our band.
"If you wanna see the other bands on this tour, PLEASE make sure that you travel to the right place, venue or even the right city. Get as much information as you can get about the show you want to visit. Otherwise it's possible that you will stand in front of closed doors.
"We wanna thank the guys of HATE ETERNAL, SPAWN OF POSSESSION, SHADOWSLAND, Ritchie (sound engineer), Math (busdriver), the people who came to the shows and the local promoters who did their best for sure. Unfortunately, we can't thank other people involved."
"Bloodred Salvation", which includes a guest appearances by Leif Jensen of DEW-SCENTED, was recorded and produced at the Rape Of Harmonies Studios by Ralf Müller and Patrick W. Engel (HEAVEN SHALL BURN, NARZISS, etc.) and mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen at his Hansen Studios (MERCENARY, RAUNCHY, COMMUNIC, etc.). "Bloodred Salvation"'s artwork was created by Killustrations (DEW-SCENTED, CARNAL FORGE, AMON AMARTH).

04. Render my Prey
05. Eve of Contempt
06. Sour Flow

SPAWN OF POSSESSION's debut album, "Cabinet", was released in 2003.
Swedish technical death metal outfit SPAWN OF POSSESSION have signed a multiple album deal with Neurotic Records. The band will utilize Pama Studios in Kristianopel Sweden once again together with highly acclaimed producer Magnus Sedenberg for an intense period somewhere between January and February 2006. The band is expected to tour right after the expected late winter/early spring release of this as of yet untitled masterpiece. SPAWN OF POSSESSION will not only re-visit familiar territories, but will also expand to newer, untouched ones in support for this album.
This follow-up to 2003’s “Cabinet” album will be even more technical, but at the same time it consists of more grooving and recognisable parts, while also being more epical approached all over. Simply put, old fans will absolutely love this, yet new souls will be collected largely. The writing process is in full progress, and so far about half a full length’s worth of material has been completed. The lyrical approach, music and artwork will all benefit the reflection of a concept based on a, what at this point is best described as, “surreal ghost story”.
Ruud Lemmen, founder of Neurotic Records, comments: “We are extremely delighted to announce SPAWN OF POSSESSION as latest addition to our roster. We absolutely love the band ever since we saw them at their first gig out of Sweden and we have always been in great contact for various reasons. We see a bright future ahead for them, and we are truly honoured to be the privileged ones to push them forward for their next few steps. These lads are not on their top yet, and the world has yet to see the very best of them.”
SPAWN OF POSSESSION bass player Nick Dewerud adds: “It feels great to become a part of the ever growing and promising Neurotic cycle. Together with them we are prepared and ready to climb even higher on the ladder of sophisticated brutality and set new standards in the community of extreme music. Brace yourselves for a substantial assault from SPAWN OF POSSESSION!”
