Decrpit Birth Seek Second Guitarist

Santa Cruz, California-based death metallers DECREPIT BIRTH have issued the following update:

"DECREPIT BIRTH is officially looking for a second guitarist who is ready for touring and playing shows. We are looking for someone who is a professional-minded musician, who has skill and some experience. It's also very important that you have professional equipment or are ready to upgrade.

"DECREPIT BIRTH is a death metal band with its roots in brutal death metal, but we are really incorporating a more melodic and mature sound into the band, so don't expect to join the band and only play brutal. Our influences range from bands such as SUFFOCATION, MORBID ANGEL and NILE to DEATH, CYNIC and QUO VADIS. So if this seems like something that you or someone you know would be interested in, please learn the tabs posted on our website under the 'Downloads' section (songs from our first album) and make some sort of video of you playing the songs if you want to be considered for the position. You MUST submit a video for consideration, unless we are already familiar with your skills. Please contact us at decrepitbirth@msn.com or www.myspace.com/decrepitbirth." More...

Ex-Decrepit Birth Guitarist Pleads Not Guilty

Former ex-Decrepit Birth guitarist has pleaded not guilty to sex crimes charges.

The District Attorney's office has filed 14 charges involving five girls and one woman against Michael Jay Turner, 27, who entered his plea to Judge Samuel Stevens on Wednesday.

Turner is accused of molesting three girls and videotaping them along with two others in sexual positions between 2002 and 2006. He was also charged with sexually battering an unconscious adult woman.

Prosecutors have not released specific descriptions of the charges, nor have they released the exact ages of the victims, saying only that four of the girls were "prepubescent" and a fifth was under 14.

Ross Taylor of the District Attorney's office said that still more charges could be coming.

"The investigation is just not complete," he said. "We've got a lot of leads and the sheriff's office is chasing them down."

A native of Arkansas, Turner played for about two years in Decrepit Birth, a local band that described itself as "modern style death metal." Band members said Turner was kicked out when after he was charged with the crimes.

Decrepit Birth Welcomes Back Bassist Risha Eryavec

Santa Cruz, California-based death metallers DECREPIT BIRTH have posted the following message on their official web site:

"DECREPIT BIRTH is very happy to announce that bassist Risha Eryavec is officially returning to the band! Due to recent situations, Risha feels that his place is with us, as our permanent bassist. We couldn't be more happy to have our brother back with us. Hopefully this will be the first step in moving on from the devastating situation we have been dealing with over the past month. Also, we would like to thank Erlend Caspersen for offering his amazing skills to help us out. Even though he never actually did any recording or touring with us, the fact that he so generously offered his talent to contribute to the band was really cool.

"We will be moving ahead with the recording of the next album and plans to record in February of 2007 are still on! We are also working on setting up some really good tours and fests for 2007." More...

Decrepit Birth Part w/ Guitarist Due To Charges

Santa Cruz, California-based death metallers DECREPIT BIRTH have recently parted ways with guitarist Mike Turner due to his arrest on charges of child molestation and sexual battery. According to a posting on the band's web site, "This will in NO way interfere with the new album. We will move on as a band, and all plans for recording the new album in early 2007 are still set." The band updated their MySpace with the following message:

"We feel that now is the time to come out publicly and let everyone know what happened in the situation of our ex-guitarist Mike Turner. Here is a bulletin from our local TV news station KSBW news:"

"SANTA CRUZ, Calif. -- A Soquel man has been arrested on charges of child molestation and sexual battery.

"Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office officials said Michael Turner was arrested Friday and booked into the county jail with bail set at $450,000. "

"Investigators said Turner recorded himself on video inappropriately touching at least two children and sexually touching an unconscious adult."

"Turner was also found to have hidden a camera in his bathroom, violating the privacy of several people, according to authorities."

"Sheriff's officials said the investigation into the case continues and that there are believed to be more victims."

"We are absolutely sickened at this, as we had no clue of the situation," the band continued in their posting. "This news has deeply troubled us over the past few days since we found out. We thought we knew Mike over the years but his deceptive ways just show us what a monster of a human he is, we trusted him and he violated people very close to us. We have no sympathy for him as we are all coping with the severity of this, it is hitting all of us on a deeply personal level. Our best wishes and prayers go out to the victims, and families that have been affected by this horrible crime. We will do all that we can to help the authorities press full charges against Mike, as we feel that he should receive the maximum penalty that the law will allow, even though that would never make up for what he did. We are asking that fans of Decrepit Birth give us their support and understanding, and to not hold us responsible for his actions. Mike is not an original member of the band, he joined a couple of years back and never contributed to the musical aspect, he was basically a live guitarist. This is the worst thing that has happened to us over the 10 years that Decrepit Birth has been a band. Our emotions are very twisted over this and all we can say is that we hope Mike Turner rots in prison forever."

Cazares Unveils New Project At Hollywood Show

Former FEAR FACTORY/current ASESINO guitarist Dino Cazares unveiled his new, as-yet-unnamed project Saturday night (September 2) at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, California prior to ASESINO's performance as part of Dino's birthday bash. According to one attendee, the band's musical direction "was reminiscent of old FEAR FACTORY — 'Soul of a New Machine' [1992] meets 'Demanufacture [1995] — but faster, heavier and more intense. After [the new group's] three-song set, Dino screamed from the stage, 'This ain't no pussy shit like new FEAR FACTORY is.' The over-packed crowd cheered as he marched off stage, only to return 10 minutes later to do a full set with ASESINO."

Dino Cazares' new band consists of the following musicians:

Dino Cazares (ASESINO, ex-FEAR FACTORY, BRUJERIA) - Guitar
Tommy Vext (VEXT) - Lead Vocals
Tim Yeung (ex-VITAL REMAINS, NILE) - Drums
Risha Eryavec (DECREPIT BIRTH) - Bass

The band is currently writing material for its debut album, which should see the light of day in 2007 through an as-yet-undetermined label.

Decrepit Birth Give Tour Update

Santa Cruz, California-based death metallers DECREPIT BIRTH have issued the following update:

"We would like to thank everyone who made the Bloodletting 5 tour a great success for us. A huge thanks goes out to everyone in DEEDS OF FLESH, VILE and ODIOUS MORTEM, as well as Mike and Thunderdome Touring! We would also like to give a special thanks to every single fan that came out to the shows and supported this tour package! We met a lot of cool people on the road and it really means a lot to us to see the support you gave us! Also, thanks to anyone who extended their hospitality to the bands and gave us a place to crash for the night or shared their weed or beer with us, we fucking appreciate that shit! Some of you might have heard of our guitarist Mike Turner's small ordeal at the Canadian border. We just wanted to let you all know that Mike did spend the weekend in a Canadian jail due to multiple attempts to cross the border into Canada. He was really disappointed about not making it across the border because he really wanted to get a chance to play in Canada. Despite the absence of Mike, the Canadian shows turned out to be a big success for DECREPIT BIRTH, and we can't wait to get back up there. Next time we'll make sure that Mike can make it out there with us."

DECREPIT BIRTH has uploaded two recently recorded demo songs to their official MySpace profile. You can check out the tracks "Await the Unending" and "Through Alchemy Bound Eternal" on their MySpace page.

DECREPIT BIRTH's debut album, "...And Time Begins", was released in October 2003 via Unique Leader Records.
