Selfmadegod Records has issued the following announcement about releasing the "This is Not a Threat, Its a Promise" album by Agathocles this coming October:
"Selfmadegod Records is proud to announce the release of the This is Not a Threat, It’s a Promise CD by the cult grind 'mince core' band Agathocles from Belgium. The 27-song album, recorded at Soundshape Studios in Belgium where the band recorded most of their full lengths, such as the classics Razor Sharp Daggers, Grind Is Protest, and Black Clouds Determinate."
Agathocles frontman Jan AG also commented:
"This album contains all elements which AG uses to create their brand of mince core. Going from raw punk to d-beat to old school straight forward grind, backed up with three different vocal styles. This time the lyrics deal with topics like losing your job and waiting for the repo man, scenesters, elections, the worldwide economic crisis, modern technology and the rise of Big Brother, and more. Get ready for another old-school, raw, mince core blast!"
This past weekend Agathocles' bassist Tony Schepkens passed away. "It's a tragedy, especially when this happens to someone so young," states the band's label Displeased Records on their site. No further details about his death is currently available.
Earlier this summer, the Belgian grinders finished up recording their new full length to be issued through Displeased Records. Named "Grind is protest," the album is expected in the winter of 2008/2009.
