Ex-Gorgoroth Drummer To Guest On DTTW Album

Following the departure of Mord and Goatpromoter Lava due to other commitments, Norwegian Black Metallers DEAD TO THIS WORLD have announced that Kvitrafn (Jotunspor, ex Gorgoroth) will be taking over drumming duties for the recording of the new album.

Iscariah, front-man and founder member of DEAD TO THIS WORLD commented “I'm very satisfied with the fact that Kvitrafn will be lending his abilities to this album. Even though it's unfortunate that the others had to part with the band, it was still a necessary move. In fact, because of this, recording will start at a much earlier date than was originally anticipated!"

Iscariah (Necrophagia, ex-Immortal) originally created DEAD TO THIS WORLD as a solo project in 2002, producing a three-track demo in 2005, which was limited to 150 copies and available only for promotional purposes. A limited edition 7” of the demo was later released on Iron Pegasus Records, whilst Hearse Records released a split 7” with AUDIOPAIN in 2007. Tracks from both these releases can be heard on the band’s official MySpace page.

More information on the forthcoming album, which promises to remain true to the speed/thrash/black underground, will be available shortly.
