Necrophobic Issues Recording Update

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 Working On New Material

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...

Withered Completes Work on New Album

Atlanta’s WITHERED have completed work on the band’s forthcoming record, ‘Folie Circulaire,’ which will see a June 24 release through Prosthetic Records.

“Our new record is officially completed and we're very satisfied,” the band says. “Thanks to everyone involved, some very cool things have fallen into place for this release. Most of you are already aware of Barney Greenway's (Napalm Death) guest vocal appearance on "...The Fated Breath" and “Clamor Beneath." As always, his vocals are amazing and can't wait for everyone to hear them.

“Also, the last song on the album is a cover song called ‘Into Armageddon’ by Necrophobic. If you're not already a fan of them, you need to be. They're in our top friends and some of the best black metal to ever come out of Sweden so check them out. Big thanks to them for being very cool about us recording their song and for writing it in the first place.

“The recording process was grueling but worth every 12 - 16 hour day. Phillip Cope (Kylesa, Baroness, Black Tusk) and the guys at The Jam Room [in Columbia, S.C.) did a great job of keeping us focused and capturing our sound. It really shows on the record. Scott Hull (Visceral Sound, Pig Destroyer) also did a great job with the mastering and sequencing. It's relentless and we couldn't be happier. The artwork is also completed. The ‘Folie Circulaire’ cover art can be seen here. Paul Romano really delivered for us. It will feature a 12-page booklet and is full of fantastic imagery. It is all very symbolic of the lyrical content and overall feel of the record. We'll post more images as the release date approaches. Big thanks to Paul for being a great friend and supporter.”

Here is the Foliw Circulaire track listing:

1. To Embrace. . .
2. . . .The Fated Breath
3. Dichotomy Of Exile
4. Gnosis Unveils. . .
5. . . .The Forsaken Truth
6. Purification Of Ignorance
7. Drawn Black Drapes. . .
8. . . .Reveal The Essence Of Suffering
9. Clamor Beneath
10. Into Armageddon

Number of tracks - 10 (eight songs, two interludes)
Length - around 46 minutes More...

Necrophobic Cancel European Tour

Swedish death metallers NECROPHOBIC have issued the following update:

"We are really sorry to announce that the whole European tour with DISMEMBER has been canceled by the promoter.

"When the bad news came to us (only seven days before the first date) we were as shocked as you probably are right now. Both DISMEMBER and us have tried to come up with different solutions to make this tour happen anyway, but the promoter has not been cooperative at all. We've been preparing and looking forward to this for months and we even have t-shirts waiting for us in Vienna by now. He didn't give us any sign whatsoever about his plans, and he never gave us a full good reason either.

"This whole mess will not break us though. We promise to make this up to you as soon as possible. To come and raise some hell together with you, in your city, in very near future.

"The metal family never dies!"

NECROPHOBIC's latest album, "Hrimthursum", is available through Germany's War Anthem Records on special gatefold vinyl LP with a poster.

The follow-up to 2002's "Bloodhymns", "Hrimthursum" was recorded at the House of Voodoo Studio with engineers Anders Bentell and Fredrik Folkare (guitarist and producer of UNLEASHED) and was mastered at Tailor Maid Production in Stockholm with Peter In de Betou.

Nifelheim Plan Split EP with Vulcano

Swedish cult act NIFELHEIM have finished writing the two songs that will be released exclusively on the NIFELHEIM / VULCANO split EP, due later in the year via I Hate Records. The songs "Sepulcral Fornication" and "Raging Flames" will be recorded at a Swedish studio beginning on May 27 and are being described by NIFELHEIM guitarist Vengeance From Beyond (a.k.a. Sebastian Ramstedt; also in NECROPHOBIC) as "a total attack of satanic black metal." He added that "this split will be the true synergy of evil."

Drummer Peter Stjornvind reecntly left the long-running Swedish metallers ENTOMBED in order to concentrate on his membership in NIFELHEIM, according to Ramstedt. "No bad breakup or anything personal between him/us and the guys in ENTOMBED, but heavy touring didn't fit his situation right now," according to Ramstedt. ENTOMBED are currently utilizing the services of session drummer Olle Dahlstedt (ALPHA SAFARI, ex-MISERY LOVES CO.) for all of their upcoming European gigs.
