"As many of you who are reading this already know, I, along with Jorge and John, have joined The World We Knew. Our first shows with them will be this upcoming weekend, including a show in Brooklyn at Club Europa this Sunday. If you want to see what I’ve gotten myself into, come the fuck out. In December, we’ll be going on a tour down to Florida and back, then playing Stillborn Fest at the end of the month. Now is the time for my out of state friends to come say what’s up!"
"Also, I can not stress this enough- Severed is not breaking up. We have several new songs in the works, one of which we will be debuting at the No Mercy Metal Showcase Dec 1 at Blender Theater. The show was originally planned for the 2nd, but it has been moved. This is Severed’s last show of the year, and one of our biggest ever. The World We Knew will also be playing, so I’m doing double duty. I’d really like to see as many of you there as possible." More...

New York City metal band Severed has recently completed their self-titled new album, which will be released on May 9th. The band will be also hosting a CD release show on this day.
The band discusses the new album, “As any band who lives to make their music known, we've put blood, sweat and tears into our new CD. We feel the music directly mirrors us as a group. The album is a raw representation of Severed's influences and personalities, and as such we've decided on self-titling it. There's no hiding behind fluff or concept. Take it or leave it, what you hear is who we are.”
“Our new lineup is the most solid it's ever been. It enabled strong technical performances, a diversity of ideas and a deep, heavy sound to be the foundation upon which our album could be built. We're especially excited about the production quality, thanks to John Machado of Five Towns College. A lot of independent bands waste a great deal of time and money on projects with weak production. That's a trap we took efforts to avoid. Working with John was invaluable to getting the sound we wanted. The same can be said for the artwork, a creation of Eliran Kantor, who has done work for many bands including Testament, Gwar, and Sigh. Like all of his art, our CD cover image was masterfully executed and exciting to see in print. We are also extremely excited about the guest appearances on the disc by Ray Mazzola of Full Blown Chaos, and Jorge Rosado of Merauder. Their support means a great deal to us, and their performances add a very dynamic feel to the songs they appear in.” More...
