Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Finnish death metallers TORTURE KILLER have announced the addition of SIX FEET UNDER/ex-CANNIBAL CORPSE vocalist Chris Barnes to the group's ranks. In a statement posted on their MySpace.com page, the band write, "Well, we never would've expected where we would stand with this band in 2005 when we first started playing together under the name of TORTURE KILLER. A lot of the interviews we did to promote the debut album, 'For Maggots to Devour', asked if we knew what the SIX FEET UNDER guys, and especially Chris Barnes, thought about us. After all, the link between us and his work with SIX FEET UNDER is more than obvious. Truthfully, we kinda wondered that ourselves as well. Well, now we know.
"Chris contacted us last October (2004) with a very supportive and friendly note. The name TORTURE KILLER caught his attention and was intrigued enough to check us out — finding us in the difficult situation we were at with the lineup. Now, we are proud to announce him as the new TORTURE KILLER vocalist and that he will be handling the vocals on 'Swarm!' — the renamed second album."
Chris Barnes had the following to say about his addition to the TORTURE KILLER ranks:
"I'm very happy to announce that I have joined the band TORTURE KILLER full-time. These guys are some of the best musicians I have ever been involved with, and I am 100 percent intent on using all my resources and eneregy to help propel this band to the top of the death metal food chain. I am extremely pleased with the songs we've put together for the CD 'Swarm!', and I can't wait to get out on tour with the band and kill every one of you sick fuckers!!! See you soon."
TORTURE KILLER have also announced that they have signed a deal with Metal Blade Records.
The basic tracks for "Swarm!" were recorded back in January 2005. Chris did his vocals at The Hit Factory in Florida in May/June with Chris Carroll and the CD was mixed and mastered by Chris and Erik Rutan in October. Artwork was handled by Wes Benscoter (MORTICIAN, SINISTER, VEHEMENCE).
According to the band's statement, TORTURE KILLER "will continue to use the help" of Sallinen (FUNERAL FEAST) in Finland, since he "absolutely butchered with his vocals" on the group's recent split 7" with SOTAJUMALA.
On November 28th, Metal Blade Europe will release the Six Feet Under box set “A Decade In The Grave.” This will be the ultimate SFU box set, including four CDs and one DVD. The box set will be released in a DVD-sized hardbox, including a 32-page, DVD-sized-booklet, photo cards, a sticker, and a poster.

BYZANTINE have posted the following message on their official website regarding dropping off the International Extreme Music Tour:
"OK. Just so everyone knows exactly what is going on with us, here is why we are not doing the IEMF tour. We were screwed by Jeffrey Churchwell at Digger International. There we no internal problems with the band. Yes, OJ had a death in the family. That’s not the issue. No, no one in the band is addicted to anything. We were fully prepared to do this tour. We have signed contracts with the venues. We just ordered new merchandise. We were in the process of securing more reliable transportation for the tour. In short, we have been taking all the steps necessary to do this tour. I will state this again clearly: We were screwed by Jeffrey Churchwell at Digger International. That is why we’re not on the tour.
Stating that there were “circumstances beyond our control” is nothing but PC horseshit. More...

Just want to fill you all in… This new CD is fully mixed and mastered and after an all night session at the Hit Factory, finishing the mix and then a drive back to Tampa from Miami at 4am, only to start a photo session with Joe Giron starting at 11am and finishing up last night at 9pm. I am sitting here right now cranking the fucking shit out of this motherfucker. Its full on brutal death metal guys - I mean heavy as fuck! The title track is on right now--this is the first CD I've done in a long time probably since Max Violence that I'm just freaking out on. I don't know how we put this together, but we did and it's really, really incredible. Just had to share that with you. This new CD will rip your fucking heads off. That's a promise.
