Relapse Records has announced the signing of Geneva, Switzerland's grindcore band MUMAKIL.
MUMAKIL is currently writing the follow-up album to their debut full-length, "Customized Warfare." MUMAKIL's Sebastien Schacher says of the signing and new album: "We're all really excited here since the signature with Relapse Records. This means a lot of work for us. We are really motivated in recording the most brutal grind CD we're able to. We'll start the recording in the end of August / early September 2008, in Geneva, and will work full-time on it. Our guitarist (Jerome Pellegrini) will carry about all the recording and mixing, and we'll do the mastering in Sweden, at Cutting Room studios."

Switzerland's Knut has announced the departure of guitarist Jeremy, who is leaving the group to concentrate on his grind project, Mumakil. Here's a statement from the band:
"This marks the end of an 8+ year partnership, and a big letdown considering the atmosphere that prevailed within the band and the amount of enthusiasm towards our latest performances. We can't help thinking that the best knut line-up is history. Touring but also writing a new record is now put in a different light, that's an understatement. What the future holds for Knut after 12 years of incredibly fulfilling activity, and what might be one too many changes in its shape and form, remains to be determined."
