Crowpath Calls It Quits, Members Begin New Project

Crowpath has decided to call it quits. The band issues the following statement:

"So, the end is upon us! After 13 years of making noise we are done! It´s been alot of fun and all that but the reason for not continuing with the band its the lack of ideas and creative drive. This is really a natural end, there is nothing more to be done."

"We would like to thank our previous bass players Björn, Thomas and especially Dan for putting up with us through out the years. Thanks to all the cool bands, promoters and people we met and also a big thanks to Willowtip for being the coolest label around!"

"Erik and Henrik has a new band going on called Tellusian. Music will pop up on the web in a not to distant future."

Bands Confirmed For 2009 Auditory Assault Festival

The official 2009 Auditory Assault Festival website has been updated with the following information:

"Auditory Assault will take place at Club Europa located in Greenpoint Brooklyn, NY. 98 Meserole Ave

"Our original intention was to have the fest take place in Manhattan, but we discovered that most clubs don't like any outside promoters and are asking for way too much of a rental fee. To put it plainly, most clubs wanted so much that even if their venue was filled to capacity we wouldn't have enough money to pay the bands based on our desire to keep the ticket price reasonable. Europa is not an extremely big venue, so it's recommended that you get an advance ticket when they go on sale before the end of February

Here is a full list of bands confirmed for Auditory Assault:

Brutal Truth (New York)
Gadget (Sweden)
Misery Index(Maryland)
Sayyadina (Sweden)
Pigsty (Czech Republic)
Total Fucking Destruction(Pennsylvania)
Entrails Massacre(Germany)
Jig-Ai (Czech Republic)
Kill The Client (Texas)
Defeatist (New York)
Copremesis (New York)

More bands were recently confirmed for Maryland Deathfest VII. Just announced to appear at MDF 2009 are:

Bolt Thrower
Swallow the Sun
The Red Chord
Rotten Sound
Keep of Kalessin
Trap Them
Agenda of Swine
Pretty Little Flower
Complete Failure
Hero Destroyed

Bolt Thrower has released this bit of news regarding their first trip to the USA in 14 years:

"Due to the fact that we are not real festival lovers or great fans of flying, the chances of us ever coming to the States for a one-off show was always very small. But after years of relentless emails from Ryan we've finally given in. It's hard to believe that it's been 14 years since we last played in the US, so we are very happy to announce that we are finally coming back. Bolt Thrower will be playing Maryland Deathfest VII, on May 22-24, 2009, at Sonar, Baltimore, MD."

A few more bands were exected to be included in this announcement, but the organizers are still working on the details. Therefore, another announcement is expected with even more band confirmations in the near future, as they wrap up the booking process for Maryland Deathfest 2009

Tickets will definitely go on sale on Friday, November 7th.

Crowpath Announce Tentative Album Tracklisting

Swedish grind metal act Crowpath has posted the following message on their official web site:

At last!! Our recording session for our second album, Son of Sulphur, is now completed. 10 days of sweat, broken microphones, headache and broken eardrums is over. The recording session was done with producer Andy Andersson in Berno studios (where bands like the The Haunted, Amon Amarth, and Insision, among others, have recorded their albums) in our hometown Malmö in the south of Sweden.

The new recording is more dynamic, both production-wise and song-wise, than previous recordings. And we are sure that people will raise an eyebrow or two, 'cuz some stuff that you'll hear on Son of Sulphur is quite different from earlier material. The album is something like 33 minutes and 12 songs long. The artwork is done by Juha Vourma, the guy who done stuff for USURPER, AUTOPSY and lots of other metal bands. Mastering duties will be done by Scott Hull at Visceral Sounds. Release date for our little baby is November 22 in the U.S. through Willowtip Records. European boys and girls have to wait until early 2006 on the Earache release.

Son of Sulphur tentative track listing (in no particular order):

01. The Will to Burn
02. Children of Boredom
03. Scab Coated Attraction
04. The Lycanthrope
05. Seed of Arson
06. Self Destructive Pessimist
07. Candles and Kerosene
08. End in Water
09. Pigeonsmasher
10. Chased, Caught and Charged
11. Picked Clean
12. Lights Out, Left for Dead

Crowpath Sign To Willowtip Records

Sweden's Crowpath have signed to Pittsburgh, PA based metal label Willowtip Records. Their full-length debut, "Red on Chrome", will be released on Tuesday, April 20th and will be available through the Lumberjack Label Group. The 13-track, 30 minute monster was recorded by Fredrik Reinedahl (In Flames, Burst) at Phlat Planet Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Crowpath recently turned heads with the announcement that their discography CD, "Old Cuts and Blunt Knives", is to be released on Richmond, VA's extreme Robotic Empire label on Tuesday, January 27th. The 11-track collection contains all of their previously released vinyl and compilation tracks, along with exclusive masters of two of the tracks from "Red on Chrome" to act as a preview of the masterful full-length. The disc was digitally re-mastered by Pig Destroyer's Scott Hull at Visceral Sound (Nile, Dying Fetus, Voivod) and will serve as an excellent window into the minds of these madmen.

Formed in the southern part of Sweden in 1997, the ferocious four-piece have launched a MP3 site with two preview MP3s from their upcoming CDs. "Like Flies To Flames" will be on both the collections disc and debut album. "We All Missed The First Episode" is an exclusive re-master from the collections disc.
