Arsebreed Finishes New Album

Dutch extreme death metal militia Arsebreed recently completed the recording of a forthcoming Unique Leader full-length with current Necrophagist basher Romain Goulon behind the kit. In an official statement the band elaborates:

"In 2006, just after [former drummer] Floris [De Jonge, Mangled] left Arsebreed, we got in contact with an unknown young French guy. He said he knew us from our other bands, Pyaemia and Disavowed. We all agreed on a try-out. After only one month, he e-mailed saying he had learned our songs. Slightly skeptical -- one month is really quick -- we bought him his plane ticket and flew him in.

"Once in the rehearsal room, he nailed it! Flawless, relentless, speed and accuracy! We instantly knew that this unknown young guy from France, Romain Goulon, was the prefect drummer for Arsebreed. Unfortunately, the best kept secret in death metal was soon discovered by the rest of the world and in 2007 Romain fled Arsebreed to join Necrophagist.

"Nevertheless, last year we once again got in contact with Romain. We started talking about these ten songs that we had written over time, just waiting for a drummer... and we were stoked to hear that he was willing to record them! This week we received the recordings. More than seven years later we got that exact same feeling that we had back in 2006 in that rehearsal room. Insane. Romain proved once again that was and is the one and only drummer for Arsebreed. He is unsurpassed in creativity, technique, speed, perseverance and grasping the concept of the Arsebreed songs as no one else. Finally! We waited for more than six years but it was worth the wait! Thanks Romain!"

Formerly known as Bloodcum, Arsebreed was spawned in 2000 and is dedicated to the execution of brutal, uncompromising, US-style death metal in the vein of Deeds Of Flesh and Deicide. More...

Brutal Assault Festival Lineup Nearly Complete

The 11th edition of the Brutal Assault festival is scheduled for August 10th - 12th in Svojsice U Prelouce (100 km east of Prague), Czech Republic.

Organizers have issued the following update:

This year’s event promises more impressive expansion and confirms that the organizers don’t intend to stagnate. On the contrary, from year to year, the festival’s program is more and more various and promises more and more foreign metal crowd-pullers for the fans of promiscuous extreme genres. Thanks to the participation of many first-rate metal bands, this event aspires to become a major metal festival in central Europe.

It’s difficult to say which band can be branded as the headliner because this year’s lineup offers up several giants of the metal genre.

Great attraction, especially for fans of atmospheric or symphonic black metal are Norwegians black metal gurus DIMMU BORGIR. In their case we can look for a frosty and dark concert experience.

The next exclusive guest comes from the USA. FEAR FACTORY, who were well known as a representatives of dehumanized cyber metal, but nowadays they come with a new actual face of the year 2006. More...

Arsebreed Sign With Neurotic Records

Dutch brutal death metal band ARSEBREED, who feature in their ranks members of PYAEMIA, DISAVOWED and MANGLED, have inked a deal with Neurotic Records. The group's first, as-yet-untitled album will be recorded after the summer for a late 2005 release. "Expect a dose of well-thought-out heavy grinding death metal with explosive dual vocal attacks following up on each other rapidly," reads a press release from Neurotic.

"Even though this band is formed around people who all have their own other bands this band is not to be seen as just another side-project, and therefore there will definitely be shows to support their upcoming album when the time is right."
