Poland's Acrybia has issued the following announcement about the release of "In Doubt We Trust:"
"At last, after many problems with line-up, labels and other persons, we can show you our new album - 'In Doubt We Trust,' recorded for new underground label - Umbra Sub Sole. First four tracks it's a new, re-recorded versions of songs from split with Zebulon Kosted. Rest of the album is a soundtrack from never released movie of Patryk Jurek 'Oblicza Mroku' with Grzegorz Kowalczyk, Piotr Grabowski, Krzysztof Wakulinski, Dorota Naruszewicz, Piotr Polk, Katarzyna Skrzynecka, Michal Milowicz, Waldemar Blaszczyk and others.
"Album was recorded almost in the same time that 'Human B. (ing)' album. We are back (for a moment) to experimental, dark ambient/industrial tones, but we don't forget about black metal riffs, and some poetic tones. After years we also recorded some death metal parts. Well, it's the most typical Acrybia's album, strange, neurotic, dark and depresive. Without music borders.
We hope you'll enjoy it."

In a recent interview with Occult Black Metal Zine, Rachid of experimental metal act Zebulon Kosted discussed several upcoming releases. Excerpts from the interview follow:
Rachid: I have been recording a new style of Experimental music for multiple Splits which will be released over the next 4 months, promoting and advertising for my full length that came out in April BETWEEN THIS WORLD AND THE NEXT and playing live shows outside of Montana whenever possible, as well as gigging locally. I have also put a considerable amount of effort into making new Z.K. merchandise, two new shirts and patches can be purchased directly through me on various easy to find websites. I am currently writing for the third and final installment in the Die Nibelungen trilogy, which will be released next Spring.
How would you describe the newer direction of the music?
Rachid: I have started experimenting with combining dark synthesizer music with ambient guitar and blast beat drumming, all while extensively utilizing samples from scientific research videos on dark energy (supposedly what 74% of the universe consists of), transcendental meditation, hypnosis and the mind prison (a.k.a. human conditioning). Their is a fair amount of variation on this formula, so not everything sounds alike by any means. This is the next step in the evolution of Zebulon Kosted, but I'm sure it will not be the last. Live I have written and performed 6 new 20 minute Avant Garde / Blackened Doom Metal pieces over the last 8 months, some incorporating performance art.More...
