Laethora Issues Update, Posts Two New Songs

LAETHORA, the Swedish death/grind band featuring members of DARK TRANQUILITY and THE PROVENANCE, has just posted two new tracks on their MySpace page.

The band commented:

"We recently did a pre-production demo of some new songs-- nothing fancy, just the old school way with a bunch of microphones in the rehearsal room. Two of the songs are now uploaded to our MySpace page. The first is called 'Uproar' and has been featured earlier on the site in live format. The second one is brand new and is called 'New day.'

"The songwriting continues, and it will be one hell of an album! That we guarantee!"

Listen to the rough demos of "Uproar" and "New Day," which will appear on the band's forthcoming as yet untitled full-length album here

LAETHORA released their debut album, "March of the Parasite," on THE END RECORDS in February of last year.

Laethora Set Release Date

THE END RECORDS has set a February 20th, 2007 U.S. release date for their debut album from Sweden’s LAETHORA titled "March of the Parasite." The album, which features guitarist Niklas Sundin from Dark Tranquillity and members of The Provenance (Joakim Rosen, bassist Jonnie Tall and drummer Joel Lindell), is firmly rooted in the death/grind tradition, yet challenging and innovative. In a recent interview with MTV.COM about the debut, Sundin described the album as "extreme and in-your-face, but organic rather than clinical-sounding."

In other news, Sundin notes: “Things are going fine in the Laethora camp. As soon as all the paperwork is done, we'll announce a record label for the European territory. In addition, we’re hard at work writing songs for the follow-up to March of the Parasite as well as planning for the first couple of live shows. More news to follow in the near future!”

The song “Black Void Remembrance” off the forthcoming debut is now available for streaming at the official The End Records' MySpace page.

The Provenance Set Release Date

The Provenance new album "How Would You Like to be Spat At" is a 53 minute struggle with life and all its dark features. One can only imagine the horror of being raped, beaten and sexually humiliated though this is exactly what The Provenance manages to portrait on this album.

Recorded in the prominent “Gesperrt Studios” over a period of two months the production of the album can be described with words like pure and simplified although it most definitely contains no shortage in details, or roughness for that matter.

The sound is more elaborate than ever before and The Provenance has once again managed to renew them themselves in splendid manners.

One can only take so much; a straightforward saying that The Provenance, on this their third full-length album, surely has taken to heart and thus created a devastating album. Having written ten so brutally honest and rigid songs The Provenance will take us to the outskirts of civilized society, a society where men are constantly at the brink of insanity. The Provenance has ceased to look for any kind of hope and instead invested in the corrupt and undisputedly agonizing relations in which man too often is forced to partake.

Fortunately The Provenance has turned left with this revolutionary piece of work and will therefore never experience the dread of being right!
