Guillotine Post Recording Update

GUILLOTINE, the reunited Swedish thrash metal band featuring Nils Eriksson (bass) and Fredrik Mannberg (rhythm guitar) of NOCTURNAL RITES, has issued the following update:

"So — Fredrik has finished about seven songs of guitar now [for the new GUILLOTINE album]...and everything sounds awesome! We are so psyched about the new songs. The material feels really diverse and aggressive. The album will be awesome, no doubt. We will be starting to record bass during next week and hopefully move into vocal recordings by the weekend. That's when the fun starts. Fredrik's voice sounds amazing. I don't understand how he sings better now after 10 years of NOT singing."

GUILLOTINE recently posted two newly recorded demo tracks — "War" and "Blood Money" — on its MySpace page.

The band's debut album, "Under the Guillotine", was released in 1997.

In a 1998 interview with Chronicles of Chaos, Eriksson stated about GUILLOTINE, "GUILLOTINE plays music that is much more back to basics and rawer than NOCTURNAL RITES. It is so different. I feel that both bands are so far apart from what style and sound they deliver. It really isn't a task to be a part of both outfits. Making music is what I do and being in both bands keeps me busy. And when I'm busy, I'm one happy musician."
