Below is our complete Nephasth news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Unique Leader Records has announced the the release date for the new album from recent signing THE ORDHER. The outfit from Brazil, featuring former members of NEPHASTH and REBAELLIUN, will release their new album, entitled "Weaponize" on October 23rd.
A message at the label website reads: "Weaponize has memorable guitar riffing and a furious precise drum attack with aggressive vocals. The Ordher is bound to be one of Brazil's future dominators in extreme metal."
Brazilian extreme death metallers NEPHASTH have apparently split up as a result of "incompatibilities of ideas and interests between the bandmembers," according to a message sent out by the group's webmaster. "With the purpose of not hurting the name of NEPHASTH in the extreme underground scene, keeping itself in an honorable way and respecting after all its original ideology, the bandmembers have decided to finish their activities with the band.
"In spite of NEPHASTH having established itself with the same bandmembers since the beginning, and all of its work along the last eight years was the result of the four members' dedication, it has been decided that none of its members shall use the name NEPHASTH [in order to preserve] its legacy. That has been decided by everyone. Thanks to all the bands, labels, webzines and metalheads that supported us all these years!"
Mighty Music has announced that they will release the next Nephasth album. The band is currently recording the album and a March, 2004 release date is expected.
