The band will spend three days at Wild Studio in St-Zenon, Quebec next week (August 6-8) working on the pre-production for the fifth studio album tentatively due in early 2005. Producing the effort will be Pierre Remillard, who has previously worked on None So Vile (1995), Whisper Supremacy (1998), And Then You'll Beg (2000) and None So Live (2003).
The upcoming CD will mark the group's first collection of new material since the return of vocalist Lord Worm, who replaced Martin Lacroix (ex-Spasme) earlier in the year.
Canadian death metallers Cryptopsy have checked in with the following message on their official website:
"The first 2 shows with the return of Lord Worm have been amazing, and fans have had great reactions as well. Unfortunately Cryptopsy was not let through the U.S. border to perform in the widely anticipated Rhode Island Drum Benefit. It seems as though you need to purchase expensive working papers to cross even if it's for one day and you are playing for free (donating your performance). The band had worked long and hard with the organizer of this event to make it happen and were more than happy to donate their performance. It's unfortunate that such strict "free trade" laws exist between two neighbouring countries, but we won't even begin to go into that. We would like to wish all the best to the family of Russell Camire and to congratulate Marc for his hard work and dedication to this event. We'll be back."
Cryptopsy's first two albums, "Blasphemy Made Flesh" (1994) and "None So Vile" (1995), have been released on vinyl in a 2-LP package (limited to 1,000 copies worldwide).

The Canadian Trois-Rivière Metalfest has started announcing bands again for it's now annual festival which is taking place from November 5th-6th. Confirmed thus far are the following acts:
A Perfect Murder
...with many more expected to round out the 14 band total. The Trois-Rivière Metalfest will again be taking place at Le Maquisart in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada.
After speculation of who was going to relpace recently departed vocalist Martin Lacroix, it has been made official, through www.cryptopsy.net, that original Cryptopsy vocalist Lord Worm has indeed returned to the fold. Lord Worm himself stated, somewhat cryptically, by saying - "'Un mal pour un bien', I've heard it said, and those seven long years ago, unhappy though I was at leaving (for a private question of honour, not beer), it was none the less for the best. Now, we've come full circle, and again a private question of honour finds me back in the fold. It is so. It cannot be otherwise. See you soon..." More...
