Nervecell just issued this update about the band's drummer being unexpectedly hospitalized and missing two upcoming shows:
"Last week our drummer Alex Micklewright was rushed to the hospital in the UK for what was quite a serious and unexpected cause. We were later informed that he had Sepsis Blood Poisioning, for those unfamiliar with the term, many have even died with such cases if not treated on time.
"As of yesterday Alex was released from the hospital and is now in resting mode until the results of his tests come through. We'd like you all to join us in sending positive vibes and in wishing him a smooth recovery. Due to all of this, Alex will obviously not be able to play the upcoming shows we have scheduled in Dubai and Beirut this weekend.
"Those of you who know Nervecell well, know we are not the kind of band who quits or pulls out of shows very often. So having said that, we'd like to announce and welcome our good friend Bachir Ramadan (InnerGuilt), who will be stepping in to handle the drum duties and helping us out for these 2 exclusive shows.
"We look forward to giving you one hell of a show in Dubai on the 28th, followed by our performance at the Beirut Metal Fest on the 29th. See you there folks!"
Middle East extreme metal pioneers Nervecell released the new song "Proxy War," which you can enjoy in the player below. The song is taken from the band's upcoming new album "Past, Present, Torture." The album will be issued this summer via Lifeforce Records, with more information expected soon.
"Past, Present…Torture" is the band’s third full-length studio release and follow-up to 2011’s "Psychogenocide." The album was mixed and mastered by Wojtek and Slawek Wiesawski at Hertz Studios (Behemoth, Decapitated, Vader) in Poland. The album cover artwork (shown below) was created by Colin Marks of Rain Song Design (Exodus, Origin, Whitechapel).
The band commented: "'Past, Present…Torture' is an album we’ve been working on for roughly the last 4 years. The album consists of 13 new tracks that promise to be the most extreme and versatile Nervecell record to date, have no doubt about it! The title speaks for itself, focusing on the state of the world and where we are all headed as a civilization. We can’t wait for you all to have a taste of what’s in store, don’t say we didn’t warn you…" More...
Nervecell just checked in with the following statement about the band's current label situation and upcoming album:
"We’d like to clear the air about this as we’ve been getting a lot of questions about whether we’re still with Unique Leader Records for North America. The fact is we’ve left Unique Leader Records for reasons not worth publicly mentioning, as it only creates more speculation.
"It was a decision we made ourselves for the band's best interest. What’s important to us now is that we focus on our new album 'Past, Present…Torture.' It’s completed, sounds absolutely killer and is ready to be released soon. So if there is any U.S. labels / A&R executives reading this or interested to work with us, the door is open and you know where to find us.
"Having said that, we are super excited to be back with our European label home Lifeforce Records who will release 'Past, Present…Torture' for all our European fans this summer. Cheers!" More...
Nervecell just checked in with this year-end update about wrapping up work on an impending full-length album:
"As the year 2016 nearly comes to an end, we'd like to inform you all that the new Nervecell album is finally completed! We will disclose all the album details early next year, so stay tuned.
"For now you can check out this new studio update from Hertz Studios (Behemoth, Decapitated, Vader etc.) in Poland, who we've worked with to handle the mixing & mastering of the new record. Happy Holidays and see you on the road again in 2017..." More...
The follow-up to Nervecell's "Psychogenocide" album is finally on the horizon, with the band offering this update:
"We have been working on new material for quite some time now and already have a few songs arranged and finalized with a lot more ideas still floating around at this stage.
"With all the extensive touring schedules and experiences we’ve had during the last 4 years, it’s only become more certain that the way forward for us musically is to dwell more into the extreme direction, fueled together with that Middle Eastern rage in our music and maintaining the classic Nervecell death / thrash stance. So rest assure, no one will be disappointed!" More...
Dubai-based death/thrash metal act Nervecell today confirms a new European tour starting this Summer before entering the studio to record an upcoming album. The band comments:
"As promised we will be back in Europe this summer hitting up these select shows in cities that we missed out on playing on our last European run. This will be the final dates for Europe before we head back into the studio and begin working on the new album. So if you haven't caught us live in the last 3 years supporting our latest album 'Psychogenocide,' this is your last chance. Mark your calendars!"
