Lacerated Enemy Records has expanded its roster with the recruitment of U.S. technical death metal outfit Reciprocal. The label comments:

"Merging influences from all over, traversing old and new schools, Reciprocal sounds like a hybrid of the best material from Necrophagist, Decrepit Birth, Psycroptic or even Death focusing on pushing the envelope yet retaining a semblance of nondetachable catchiness. The ambitious band will have its latest album promoted worldwide through Lacerated Enemy Records."

Crematorium Announces Last Show With Guitarist

CREMATORIUM, the Los Angeles purveyors of "Murdercore," has announced that guitarist and longest standing member, Mark Uehlein, will be leaving the band for personal reasons. His last show with CREMATORIUM will be this Saturday, February 27th at The Blvd in Los Angeles, CA.

Vocalist Daniel Dismal comments on the subject, "This Saturday night is going to be Mark's last show ever with CREMATORIUM. Mark has dedicated a lot of blood and sweat into playing with CREMATORIUM since 1996 and in many ways, CREMATORIUM would not have done as much as we have as a band if it was not for Mark's involvement with the band. It's a sad day to watch Mark leave but we want to give him a proper send off and let him know just how much he will be missed and how much he's actually given to the underground Metal scene as a whole."

The complete details of the show are as follows:

Church of the 8th Day presents...

Reciprocal Issues Record Release Show Recap

California death metallers Reciprocal have issued the following recap of their record release show:

"First off, thank you to all the fans who came out to support. You guys all helped make it a memorable night in the Reciprocal story. The show was fucking awesome. On a night with Dethklok playing just minutes away, Municipal Waste playing a block away, and a free metal/porn show across the street at Hustler, we expected it to be dead. But you the FANS delivered and packed the place. Thanks again to everyone who came out.

"All the local opener bands were bad ass. Enthraller ripped it up. Abysmal Dawn and Vehemence were fuckin sick. Thanks to Charles from AD for getting us on the show. The only bad part of the night was the crooks at the Whisky taking money from the bands for their merch sales, FUCK THEM! Overall it was truly a night to remember."

Reciprocal's self-titled album was released on November 19th.
