Hostile Cell Working On New Material

Swedish outfit Hostile Cell, which called it quits back in April of 2011, has now issued the following announcement about working on new material which may be released under a different name:

"Happy New Year! We are pleased to let you know that we are working on brand new material with the band formerly known as Hostile Cell.

"This is more progressive stuff, we're playing what we want and not caring about any trends, just like it should be.

"The name of the band is not 100% determined yet, but we'll be back soon with an update. To give you a hint of what the music sounds like, take a sip of AIC, swallow it down with some Machine Head and add a cup of the Haunted to the mix. Without the screaming though, I'm singing cleanish."

Hostile Cell Bassist Forming New Band

Sweden's Hostile Cell officially called it quits back in April, and since then member Martin Söderqvist has been working with new band Debbie Ray. Martin has now issued the following announcement about forming another group:

"Apart from playing with Debbie Ray, which is pretty much standing still right now because we are in the process of a slow recording, I am in planning mode for a brand new band.

"The drummer will most likely be H-Can from Debbie Ray, and that's all I know right now. It will definitely be music that is unsensitive to trends, something that I want to play for the sake of creating good, hard music.

"Rock n hardcore, we'll see what comes out of our twisted minds once we start writing material. Right now I've just started looking around for a guitarist."

Hostile Cell Calls It A Day

Swedish metal act Hostile Cell has announced that the group has disbanded and the members are now involved with new projects. A message from band member Martin Söderqvist reads as follows:

"As you may have suspected from the lack of updates, Hostile Cell is no more. After releasing two albums and having a lot of fun in this band I guess we all felt that the time we put into it didn't give the results we wanted.

"Johan and Eric are jamming on some new songs, and we'll see what that will turn into. Per is fully focusing on his awesome surf-rock band Sixkiller They are in the studio right now creating some cool shit.

Hostile Cell Clarifies Comments On Negative Review

Sweden's Hostile Cell had previously posted a statement online about a negative review from Sweden Rock Magazine. The band has now posted the following comments clarifying the original statement:

"It seems that some people were quite offended by my last statement. I just want to clarify what I actually meant: I totally respect every review we get, and I don't care if it's good or bad. As long as it's made by a professional and has content, it's all good. But if you are a writer for one of the bigger rock mags, you don't trash an album just because it's in a different genre than what you prefer.

"If it has good production, and song structures, either you give it to someone who understands that type of music or you rate it for what it is. Because you should be better at rating music than the average listener. You are a professional music writer.

"I don't write music for critics, I write music for people who want to listen to it. I think it's stupid to say that 'I don't care what people say or think about my music.' There is nothing better than seeing people headbanging in the audience or writing in some forum that Hostile Cell is one of the best new bands out there. It makes my day! If you don't agree with me, it's fine. Keep reading the blog, there will be more news shortly!"

Hostile Cell Comments On Negative Review

Sweden's Hostile Cell has posted the following MySpace blog regarding getting radio play in Nicaragua and responding to a negative review by Sweden Rock magazine:

"Hey everyone, Hostile Cell has been getting airplay on national radio in Nicaragua! Very exciting indeed. In other news I just want to bash the idiot who reviewed the Deafening in Sweden Rock magazine. Look, if you don't like the genre, give the CD to someone who cares about it or why don't you just go fuck yourself.

"You gave the album 3 out of 10 and compared us with, in your own words, 'such uninteresting bands as Sonic Syndicate and Dead by April.' They may be uninteresting to your cave dwelling, underground shit taste, but that's what a lot of people like right now. That just proves how fucking stupid and unprofessional you are. I can take a bad review, if it's got some real content. You're writing that you can't stand pop with growl and metal riffs. Well don't review the album then you fucking idiot.

"They should ban you from reviewing another band, especially a small band that unfortunately is dependent on the reviews of such magazines. So, Simon Lundh, my review of your opinions is zip out of 100. Go fuck yourself."

Hostile Cell Not Touring This Summer

Sweden's Hostile Cell has checked in with the following band update and announcement about not touring during the summer:

"Hello everyone! We were too late to book festival gigs after releasing the Deafening and the clubs are pretty much closed over the summer. But I just wanted to tell you that we're still alive and well, even though we're not out playing right now. If you don't own a copy of the Deafening by now, go to Itunes and get it!

"So, while nothing's going on with Hostile Cell right now I have started playing bass in the hard rock band Debbie Ray from Herrljunga, Sweden. It features former members of Plan 9. Debbie Ray just released their debut album 'Artificial Misery' in the US through Demon Doll Records, and in Europe through Coreshot Productions/Plugged Distribution. It's a pure hard rock album in the vein of Skid Row and Hardcore Superstar, but with a modern touch. Check them out at this location. Have a great summer everyone!"

Stay heavy!"

Hostile Cell Parts Ways With Bassist

Sweden's Hostile Cell has issued the following announcement about parting ways with their bassist Johan Andreassen:

"As of last week we have parted ways with bassist Johan Andreassen. This decision was made quickly due to a series of events related to the making of our new album the Deafening. Johan has failed to fulfill his part in order to get this album out, and we have not spoken to him in days. Apparently he has no interest in explaining himself or pay the money that he owes us as he has made himself unreachable in every way. The good news is that we are all extremely happy to announce, that original bass player Per Romvall, is once again a permanent member in the band. A good friend and talented musician is back to make Hostile Cell better than ever!"
