"The following bands are completing the line-up of Mountains of Death 2011: Incinerate (US), Modus Delicti (IT), To Violently Vomit (US), and Putrid Pile (US).
"All those who are giving themselves the trouble to check out the links on the billing list might wonder about the myspace address of To Violently Vomit... behind this name stands nobody less than the singular, legendary and since 1992 acitve Disgorge from San Diego... or at least the greater part of them! All the rest about disturbances and stories about the band you can read at another place and would go beyond the scope of this note.
"Almost unavoidable, there are some line-up changes. The following bands are not able to play: Ancient Necropsy (CO) and Ingurgitating Oblivion (DE)"

Dutch death metal band SEVERE TORTURE has announced their signing to Season of Mist. Bassist Patrick comments: "We are very excited about signing to Season of Mist! They have an amazing bandroster and we can't wait to release our new album on the same label as Dillinger Escape Plan, Cynic, Morbid Angel, Watain and many others. We already had our share of label experience in the past, some good, some bad, and we have the feeling that working with Season of Mist is going to be a big step up for us! Merci beaucoup, motherfuckers!"
SEVERE TORTURE is currently in Split Second Sound Studios in Amsterdam with producer Jochem Jacobs, hard at work on their upcoming fifth album. You can find some videos of the recording sessions on the band's YouTube channel.

SEVERE TORTURE bassist PATRICK BOLEIJ discusses the band's recent activities:
"Here's a short update to let you all know what's been going on in the Severe Torture camp over the last couple of months. We've actually been working our asses off, writing the finest death metal tunes possible. We have about 6 songs down and riffs and ideas for 4 or 5 more. We'll be finishing those in the next 2 months. Musically it's gonna be one of the fastest, sickest and most brutal Severe Torture records ever! This stuff is gonna be fuelled by the sheer disgust of all the whimpy, lame-ass, fashion-crap that's been polluting the music industry for years. And it made us realize all the more what we love most... Playing brutal fuckin' death metal. The plan is to start pre-production in July and have everything ready for recording in September." More...

DEICIDE has vowed to play the previously announced Spanish dates despite the decision by the local promoter, Matarile, to withdraw its involvement in the shows.
Matarile, the agency in charge of promoting the gigs on the Spanish leg of the current DEICIDE European tour, released a statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET earlier today (Thursday, January 11) announcing that it was "cancelling" the three shows due to the absence from the tour of the group's bassist/vocalist Glen Benton. "Matarile regrets to report the decision of cancelling these shows to avoid that part of the Spanish fans could feel disappointed and deceived," the company said in the statement.
Within a couple of hours of Matarile's original statement being published on the pages of this site, DEICIDE guitarist Ralph Santolla contacted BLABBERMOUTH.NET to say that the band will attempt to play all dates as scheduled, despite any reports to the contrary.
"DEICIDE is NOT cancelling Spain or anywhere else on this tour," Santolla told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "Matarile is not our booking agent, just a local promoter with no ties to DEICIDE. We are moving the venues in Spain and the new ones will be announced tomorrow [Friday, January 12]. We've had very large turnouts and great gigs so far, and we will play the full tour. We expect Glen to join us as soon as his situation allows."
Floridian death metallers DEICIDE kicked off their European tour on Friday, January 5 without frontman Glen Benton, who reportedly was forced to stay home to take care of pressing legal matters (although this has not been officially confirmed). Replacing Benton for the first four dates of DEICIDE's tour is SEVERE TORTURE drummer Seth van Loo, who previously took care of vocals in CENTURIAN and NOX.
Seth van Loo apparently learned 17 songs in one afternoon and did "a great job" at the first show of the trek, which took place in Eindhoven, Holland. [NOTE: Seth van Loo is only singing in the band; he is NOT playing bass. There is currently no replacement bassist in the group.]
These are the remaining dates of DEICIDE's European tour that will feature Seth van Loo on vocals:
Jan. 07 - GER - Saarbrucken @ Roxy
Jan. 08 - HOL - Rotterdam @ Baroeg
Severe Torture are currently on tour with Vader and God Dethroned and have been keeping a diary whilst out on the road.
Here's the (lengthy) SEVERE TORTURE tour report so far:
"The tour started out on the 28th of september in Berlin(DE). After hooking up with Vader, God Dethroned and crew we picked our bunks in the nightliner. This bus was going to be our home for 6 weeks and as far as our experience goes, this was the best and biggest bus we ever had! The first show was better than we expected. Turnout was good for a Thursday (200+) and people seemed to like us. It definitely was a perfect start of the tour!
The second day we went to Jena(DE). The venue was great and we spent the afternoon with some sightseeing in the center of the city. Turnout was good again and the audience was wicked as well. The beer tasted very good and both God Dethroned and Vader gave good shows as well. More...
