Denmark's Submission has issued the following update regarding their decision to disband:
"Submission has parted ways as of now, due to internal disputes. Morten, Kasper and Boris will continue in their other current projects. Christoffer and Lasse will form a new band, details will follow soon. Submission would like to thank all the fans, friends and people, who has supported us, from the beginning. Thank you for the great gigs and experiences, throughout the years."
Submission has created a little " Goodbye " video, which can be viewed below:
Mercenary have been joined by Danish drummer Morten Løwe (Submission, Arcane Order, a.o.), who has made the following comment:
"I'm happy to announce that I have now joined Mercenary. After having shared the stage with Mercenary alongside my band Submission, I became really impressed by their shows and musicianship, so I'm really looking forward to deliver some kick-ass shows as their drummer. I'm also very excited about being involved in the writing for the next album. It will show a new Mercenary, and I mean that in a very positive way. In my opinion the new material will definitely be the strongest to this date!"
Guitarist Jakob Mølbjerg adds:
"We're very happy to have Morten join the ranks. Not only is he a true master behind the drums, he's also a very easygoing person with a great musical drive and understanding. With Morten in the band, there's a whole new sense of renewed and shared energy, creativity and ambition. We've had several rehearsal sessions in the last couple of weeks, and the metal just flows. The old songs already sound like Morten have played them for years, and the new material is crushing and intense.
"On a further note, we now have a complete lineup. René will handle all vocals from now on, and trust us, he's more than capable of doing so. As everybody who has seen us live in the last couple of years is fully aware of, René is a real powerhouse, and he has so much more under his belt than he got to display on the previous album (genital pun intended.)"
Mercenary will perform with their new lineup for the first time at the Shock Rock Festival on 12th of February, 2010 (with Carpark North, The Rumour Said Fire). More info at www.rockshock.dk.
Denmark's Submission has issued the following update:
"We are currently in the process of writing new material for the upcoming album to 'Code of Conspiracy,' that hopefully can be released sometime during summer of 2010."
"Everything sounds very good so far, and we're all looking forward to get ready for the real recording of this album, which we think is gonna be the best you'll hear from Submission so far."
Denmark's Submission has posted a new track, "A Terror Within," from the upcoming album, "Code Of Conspiracy," on their MySpace page.
Submission is currently finishing up a tour of Denmark with Mercenary.
Mercenary has commented on their MySpace about their upcoming Danish "Execution Tour," which kicks off tomorrow (February 27) at Sønderborghus in Sønderborg.
"Well, it's the day before our Danish 'Execution Tour' starts with fellow Danish metallers Submission, and we're psyched! The last couple of weeks have been spent rehearsing new and old songs for the set, so there's some old stuff as well as a song from 'Architect of Lies' we've never played live before (hardcore fans should be able to figure that one out.)
"Furthermore, we felt we owed it to the fans to up our game a bit, so last weekend we had a production-rehearsal (All Sunday, from early morning - how's that for dedication?). We borrowed a local venue (a big thank-you to Studenterhuset) and put up all our gear and some lights we've rented for the tour - and it looked absolutely cool as fuck! We've got a wall of guitarstacks and some huge basscabinets lined up to blow everything away, a really intense and quite special light setup and some small really cool details and gimmicks. Of course we also rehearsed the songs one final time to go over some microscopic details, shouted to our light-engineer that he should get his act together and changed a few arrangements in the songs in the very last minute. (Hell, we might as well admit that we even practiced a few nifty synchronized moves on stage ... now, how metal is that? The review who once called us 'a deathmetal boygroup' actually turned out to be spot on ...)
"Finally, we've also made a few new shirt designs (a new one based on the AoL coverart, and a limited tour-shirt) which will shortly be available in our webshop and on the tour of course.
"All in all, this could very well be the coolest string of Danish shows we've ever done - so the question you all gotta ask yourself is whether you dare to miss out?"
Danish "Execution Tour" dates are as follows: More...
Danish melodic death/thrash band SUBMISSION, have signed a worldwide deal with BLISTERING RECORDS.
The band's second album, “Code Of Conspiracy,” will be released by BLISTERING RECORDS in early 2009.
"Code Of Conspiracy" is "a grand tour de force in highly technical, yet still melodic and aggressive death/thrash played by highly skilled and ass kicking musicians — it's clear that SUBMISSION holds no fear towards colleagues such as MESHUGGAH, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, SOILWORK or TEXTURES whatsoever!"
SUBMISSION's new album marks the debut of new singer Lasse Sivertsen, who replaced Steven Qvist, the man behind the microphone on the band's debut album, "Failure To Perfection" (Listenable Records, 2006).
Commented drummer Morten Løwe Sørensen: "I believe SUBMISSION has its own trademark. Our song structures are not common and there is a huge variety within our songs. The music is kind of technical but still with hit potential. Also, we have a range from very groovy and melodic parts to fast blast beats. In metal 'more is more' and I think SUBMISSION climbs that demand without losing perspective."
The tentative tracklisting for “Code Of Conspiracy” is:
2. Rebel Of Society
3. Imaginary Freedom
4. A Terror Within
5. In The Eyes Of The Tyranny
6. An Illusion Of The Perfect Forever
7. Determent Infiltration
9. Celebrate The Dead
10. Code Of Conspiracy
11. The End Of Eternity
12. Raised Above God (bonus track)
Denmark's Submission have issued the following update regarding the addition of new singer Lasser Sivertsen:
"Lasser Sivertsen is the new frontman of Submission, Lasse has taken the job on very very well, and we welcome him to Submission."
"Our new record, 'Code of Conspiracy' is done and recorded, and on sale approx start of Nov. 2008. More info will follow soon." More...
