Ibex Moon Records has issued the following statement about "Mortal Repulsion," the upcoming album from Goreaphobia:
Reunited death/thrash legends Goreaphobia have just completed the recording of Mortal Repulsion, the debut album for Ibex Moon Records, and have sent it for mastering. The band has also re-recorded some old classics for inclusion as bonus tracks. The new album features guitarist Alex Bouks, bassist/vocalist Chris Gamble, guitarist John McEntee (Incantation), and drummer Jim Roe (ex-Incantation).
Says Bouks about the album, "A lot of people had been asking when the record will be done for a long time, but we needed to do things right and not rush the album. This is the first time I have ever worked with a group of musicians I respect and that have worked together as a band. Everyone has been involved with the writing process. The only way I can describe Mortal Repulsion is 'extremely dark, atmospheric, aggressive, and heavy.' I am very happy about what we have created together. This is the record we were always meant to make - pure death metal in its darkest form. We look forward to playing live for all the fans in the next coming months." More...

Also, it's a real fucking honor to do these dates with GOREAPHOBIA They are by far one of my favorite bands from the early '90s era, and hold legendary status as far as I'm concerned . This makes it all the more KILLER!"
"Speaking of a real honor," comments ESTUARY's lead vocalist Zdenka Prado, "We are extremely pleased to announce that Jack Owen will once again be handling bass duties on this trek. Jack did an awesome job on the Balkans Assassination, tour and we are thankful to have him on board once again. These shows will definitely kick ass!

Jack Owen states: "I'm honored once again to be sharing the stage with my friends, and thrash death maniacs ESTUARY! Also thrilled to head to the great white north and see the many fans and friends from over the years! It's a short tour, but should be full of blast beats and mystery meat! Some of you may not know, but I will be playing bass on this tour as I did on ESTUARY's European tour in October of 2007, which was a total blast. See you soon!"
GOREAPHOBIA's Chris G. Mezzadurus adds: "We are very excited about coming into Canada for the first time. As A matter of fact, this Canadian tour will be the first time in GOREAPHOBIA's history to EVER play outside the United States!!! Canada has A very close and sacred place in my soul for extreme heavy metal! Canada has spawned some of the greatest metal acts of all time for myself, GOREAPHOBIA, and legions of metalheads as well! VOIVOD has been one of GOREAPHOBIA's most paragon inspiration and innovative master of extreme metal music! Also, bands we have admired and loved are RAZOR, EXCITER, SACRIFICE, SLAUGHTER, and PILEDRIVER, to name A few mighty Canadian influences. We hope that the Canadian metal maniacs that come to see us for the first time are just as excited as we are to perform for them!
