Xtreem Music has issued the following statement about the debut album from Norwegian death metal band The Sickening:
"Norwegian brutal Death Metallers THE SICKENING have inked a 2-album deal with XTREEM MUSIC. The band, featuring ex-BLOOD RED THRONE's drummer Beist, is heralding the flag of new wave of Norwegian brutal Death with a style that's heavily influenced by bands like SUFFOCATION, PYREXIA & CANNIBAL CORPSE with more modern touches in the vein of KATAPLEXIA, DISAVOWED, INVERACITY... no groovy slamming stuff, just straight forward brutal Death!!
"Their debut album, tentatively named "Death, Devastation, Decay!" is already recorded and currently being mastered in Sweden by the infamous Deathmaster Dan Swäno. 11 songs of relentless and brutal-as-fuck Death Metal including a cover of CANNIBAL CORPSE's "Hammer Smashed Face" in a way more brutal and bizarre style will be included on this debut opus that will undoubtely put THE SICKENING in the map of the current brutal Death Metal scene.
"Release schedule for this album hasn't been settled yet, but it's expected sometime this summer 2009 while the band is hardly working on shows not only in their homeland, but also in various festivals across Europe."
