Demigod Announce New Guitarist

Finnish death metallers DEMIGOD have issued the following update:

"Tuomas Karppinen is Demigod's new guitarist and tomorrow we'll play our first gig in Jyväskylä (Lutakko, Finalnd) with the new lineup! Karppinen plays also in bands such as TORTURE KILLER, ARCHGOAT and DEEPRED!"

Demigod announced just yesterday, September 26th, that Tero Laitinen had decided to leave Demigod after a 'few' years of brutality and mayhem. So we leave him behind with a couple of broken bones and a shattered self-image. Enjoy the days with just a hangover and NOT a fucking band-rehearsal on top of that hangover. After being a part of Demigod from day one, Tero leaves us with a huge gap in experience, stupid jokes and all the beer-drinking sessions shall be slightly less fun."

Demigod Part Ways With Guitarist

Finnish death metallers DEMIGOD have issued the following update:

"Tero has left the building... Tero Laitinen has decided to leave Demigod after a 'few' years of brutality and mayhem. So we leave him behind with a couple of broken bones and a shattered self-image. Enjoy the days with just a hangover and NOT a fucking band-rehearsal on top of that hangover. After being a part of Demigod from day one, Tero leaves us with a huge gap in experience, stupid jokes and all the beer-drinking sessions shall be slightly less fun. We have actually known about Tero's departure for a while now and at this point we can tell that we have found a new guitarist for Demigod and we'll throw our first gig with him next Friday, September 28th (in Jyväskylä, Finland at Lutakko)."

Demigod Sign With Xtreem Music

Old-school Finnish death metal masters DEMIGOD have signed a deal with Xtreem Music to finally release their long-awaited third album.

Commented the band:"After careful consideration, DEMIGOD has finally decided to release their third album, 'Let Chaos Prevail', self-financed in Scandinavia. The band's strong belief in the material took them to Fantom Studios already last summer and now finally after almost a year of pondering their options, the band will finally release the album. As their criteria for the release this time was proper promotion in Finland and Scandinavia combined with wide spread distribution over the world, the band came to the conclusion of releasing the album self financed in Finland and getting a foreign partner to handle the distribution and promotion all over the world. The right label for co-operation was found in Xtreem Music. With Xtreem Music handling the distribution & promotion worldwide and the band themselves taking care of the Scandinavian market, the album will surely reach everyone who is interested in getting it."

"Let Chaos Prevail" will be released on May 30 in Scandinavia and June 15 in the rest of the world. A song from the upcoming CD, entitled "Not Dead Enough", can be heard via the group's MySpace page.
