U.K. based blackened death metal band Detrimentum has issued the following update:
"Detrimentum have finished writing 8 tracks (guitars only) for their second album. Our aim is to focus on recording the album this year as professionally as possible and we’re currently looking at the studios Bolt Thrower and Vader have recorded their recent albums in."
"The right person will be able to contribute bass lines/lyrics for the album. Vocals styles preferred are varied black/death metal mix. We’re open minded to singing in styles similar to Opeth. Any location is ok but must have transport and decent bass equipment. We currently rehearse twice a month in the Birmingham area." More...

Unique Leader Records have announced the signing of UK extreme metallers INFECTED DISARRAY:
"Infected Disarray have been a cult band in the underground since 2000 but left behind their side-project status in recent years to move to the forefront of the UK scene. Moving schizophrenically between savage blasting and moments of crushing heaviness, extremity is the ultimate goal. The band are now ready to release their debut album, 'Disseminating Obscenity' on Unique Leader Records. The group's ranks also include members of DETRIMENTUM, ex-GOREROTTED, BEEF CONSPIRACY, BRAINCHOKE and TWITCH OF THE DEATH NERVE along with the owners of Grindethic Records."
UK extreme metallers DETRIMENTUM announce the worldwide release of their long awaited debut full length album, "Embracing This Deformity", on February 4, 2008 via Grindethic Records.
Honing DETRIMENTUM's trademark style of blending brutal death metal with elements of black metal and doom, the album is equally at home expressing ferocious aggression with razor sharp blastbeats and guttural vocals, along with moments of dark introspection with soaring melodies and tortured screams.
The album features the stunning artwork from former vocalist Eddie Ruffles and will contain a multimedia section with live video and full set of lyrics which stand head and shoulders above the usual death metal fare, taking an uneasy journey across bleak misanthropic landscapes. The cover artwork can be viewed at this location.
Here is the "Embracing This Deformity" track listing:
02. Disillusion Ethos (Of Torment and My Bleeding Shadow)
03. Blood Simple
04. Dark Eye [MP3 ]
05. The Flesh Elemental
06. Born To Bleed (Losing Myself To Silence)
07. Negativity Flux
08. Ills To Which The Flesh Is Heir
09. The Contusions Of Remorse
10. Twilight's Slow Attrition
This album marks the beginning of collaboration between Grindethic Records and distribution company Code7 with their partners at Plastic Head, which will see this release available through high street chains in the UK, mainstream online retailers and pay-to-download networks.
DETRIMENTUM will celebrate the release of their new album with a launch party headline show at the Bar Monsta in London, UK, on 26 January 2008 where copies of the album will be available to purchase for the first time. Other bands scheduled to appear are BLOODWORK, SCYTHIAN and DYSCARNATE. A flyer for this show can be viewed here.
Grindethic Records has renewed their working relationship with UK extreme metallers Detrimentum. The label had previously released their debut release, "A Monument to Suffering" in 1999.
Tom from Grindethic had this to say about the deal: "After long discussions with the band, we are extremely proud to announce that the fantastic full-length " Embracing This Deformity" will see light of day via Grindethic Records in Spring 2007. This album offers a unique experience of dark and crushing brutality intertwined with an atmosphere of morbid doom."
