Cessation Of Life Working On New Album

Cessation Of Life are currently writing the follow up to "The Glory Of The World Is Passing" CD and are currently recording some working tracks in Los Angeles. "Avenger Of Blood," penned by guitarist Travis Anderberg is a real crusher. The band has performed the song live a hand full of times to rave reviews from the fans. Other songs set to be recorded are "Into Pieces" and "Life In Camarillo." The later was written by Chris Violence after a trip to Camarillo Metal Hospital (now closed). Violence went to the defunct facility to video tape the history of the complex. His video diary is available for download at his MySpace page.

Fans can expect finished recordings possibly by the end of the year. You can check the band's website for summer tour dates.
