Ex-Necrophobic guitarist David Parland has issued the following update about the upcoming demo from his as yet unnamed band:
"Well, this is just a short update on things and what we are up to right now...
"Right now, me and Tomas (Asklund) have finished about 90 % of the core material for the first demo. Things are going faster than expected and pretty well. The demo will be recorded within two months, and as soon as it is finished, we will put up excerpts/trailers on this myspace website for people to hear. We may even do a website only for this project, but so far we will use this (my personal website) for this new band/project.
"The yet nameless demo will contain 3 tracks (4 - if you count the one minute intro) and will have the following song/titles:
1) The Darkside Calls (intro)
2) Of The Seven Gates
3) Killing Christ
4) Godforsaken (With Hate I Burn). More...
Swedish death metal band Necrophobic has issued the following update about new shows and the recording of their upcoming album:
"We have 2 new shows coming up. The first one is in Växjö (Sweden)on March 27, where we haven't played since 1995, so we hope to fill Kaskaded in Folkets Park to the maximum. The next show after that will be in Germany on the Kings of Black Metal Festival, together with friends Watain, Mayhem and Dark Funeral among others. That massacre will be held in Giessen at Hessenhallen on April 18.
"From the studio, we can report that all drums, guitars, lead guitars and the bass have now been recorded and tomorrow it's time for the demonic vocals to be recorded. As you may already have read on several music news pages and net magazines, the title of the new beast will be "Death To All". The album will be released on April 27. More info will follow..."
Ex-Necrophobic guitarist David Parland has created a new MySpace page detailing a new project he is working on. He issued the following statement:
"To begin with, the main reason with this Myspace website is of course nothing other than to provide you with information about what I am up to...
Since I literally have been out of the scene for some good time and living under a rock (wasting even my own creativity and a lot of time), I for some strange reason feel NOW is the time to restart everything. Why exactly now I do not know, but I work on 'if it feels right...it is right.'
So the main reason for me reaching out again right now is because of the new music band/project I am creating. This is right now in the making. There is sadly not too much I can reveal at this moment, other than 1) it will be a return to more of a Death metal style with Black and Thrash metal influences. but it will be brutal and Catchy and very melodic. 2) Tomas Asklund (ex.DARK FUNERAL/DISSECTION/INFERNAL is the drummer and other core member, and right now we are in the songwriting process).
We will put up excerpts from the coming demo here in a couple of weeks, so check back later for this. This will be followed by an album in late 2009, with around 8-9 tracks. More...
A brief Q&A with new Necrophobic bassist Alex Friberg has been posted online. You can read it below.
Q: How does it feel to be the "new" warrior in such a long running band?
A: "I'm very honored and proud to be fully trusted with this task."
Q: What can you tell us about your background?
A: "I have listened to metal for as long as I can remember, and picked up the bass giutar at the age of 10. I have played with numerous bands, but it was all a warm-up for Necrophobic, hehe..."
Q: What are your feelings towards the new material for the upcoming album?
A: "Total destruction! Also a total killer for me to be a part of the making process in an early stage."
