Metal Blade Records has issued the following update on Germany’s RED AIM (www.redaim.de):
"Yes, it is true. Red Aim are on the verge of a new era. As reported in the media before, Dr. Rogers and crew have transcended into the realms of the ones who love to love the dead.
We promised you more details from the crypt - and now it´s time to unleash some facts:
Some days ago the satanic five finished a first studio session for the upcoming album, The Pink Necromantic. The title track (which will be the leading theme for the concept of the album - "the main theme of the necromantic as he rises") and some more catchy tracks have been recorded and will be mixed while this news come to light.
One or two more studio sessions in different studios with different producers are on the schedule for the upcoming months, and The Pink Necromantic is supposed to see the pale light of a release later this year.
The concept of The Pink Necromantic will be accompanied by a mere philosophical essay based upon the words of some classical philosophers as well as the deeds of some necromantic gentlemen in history."
Stay tuned for further updates.

Without these two men Red Aim would probably not exist and we believe that it is our goddamn duty and destiny to pay respect to them.

The recent Red Aim show has ended with a hospital visit: “Captain Mitch Buchanan got seriously injured during the show on December 6th in Saarbrücken”, Red Aim guitarist B.B. Foxworth reports.
“During the last song the stacked-up drum monitors fell down and hit Mitch´s head. He immediately was taken to hospital for surgery. He´s better off already but we´re still shocked as he could have been dead..."
