Dubai/Canadian act Nephelium has issued the following announcement about canceling upcoming December shows due to the band's drummer sustaining a hand injury:
"We are terribly sorry and regret to inform you that our December dates will have to be cancelled as out drummer Alan nearly ripped off his left pinky finger. Even though there is no break, the damage is pretty extensive and doctors said it will take at least a month to heal.
"Again, we cannot apologize enough and thank you for understanding. We will definitely see you soon however!"
Nephelium will be releasing "Coils of Entropy" on February 7th, 2012, with full details available at this location.
Dubai may be known as a city rich in history, a business hub and the home of the tallest structure in the world, but it’s also the birthplace of one of the first death metal bands to come out of the Middle East, Nephelium. Now residing and re-establishing itself in Toronto, Canada over the last 10 years, the band has announced the official release date of the debut album "Coils of Entropy" on February 7th, 2012.
Nephelium co-founder and drummer Alan Madhavan comments, "From the scorching heat of the Arabian deserts to the blistering cold of what we now call home, this debut album has literally and figuratively come a long way. The aged yet modern style of death metal with a subtle integration of Middle Eastern melodies is a perfect musical collaboration of our minds and souls. A ferocious ride with concepts and lyrical themes written around the observations of an entity witnessing the world and its demise through different eras and music that creeps up the caverns of your brain, be ready for a hybrid onslaught of technical mastery and bloodcurdling brutality. We firmly believe that it was well worth the wait but don’t take our word for it, give it a spin and determine that for yourselves. However, don’t cry when your speakers demolish your insides…you were warned…"
