Things have been relatively quiet in The Red Chord camp lately as the band is now focused on completing their next full-length. The album is tentatively entitled "Clients" and is likely to hit stores later this year. The group has been in negotiations with several record labels during the past year and are now nearing a decision following extended negotiations. Meanwhile, The Red Chord has undergone some recent lineup changes as bassist Adam Wentworth recently left the group to join Premonitions Of War, while drummer Mike Justain is now playing with Unearth. Consequently, the band has added bassist Gregory Weeks (Beyond The Sixth Seal) and drummer Jon Down (Dead Water Drowning) to their lineup. Dow will remain in Dead Water Drowning as well, in case you were wondering.
Boston metal band Beyond The Sixth Seal has officially broken up. Formed in 1998, the group has previously released material with Lifeforce Records and Voice Of Life Records. Here's a statement from the band regarding their demise:
"After nearly 5 years it's come to the point where we felt it better to end the band than go through even more lineup changes. The decision was mutual on all sides, and we will continue to work together on projects in the future... We want to thank everyone who's put up with us over the years and ever come out to support us. Anyone interested can purchase the last of whatever merch we have left on our website - www.theredchord.com/btss"
The group will be playing a final show in 2004, in addition to recording all of their remaining material in conjunction with several covers. These final recordings will surface on several vinyl releases, though labels and other specifics have yet to be announced.
