Torchbearer has checked in with the following update about the band's new album "Death Meditations:"
"Hi all! (Sorry for the lack of updates lately.) A couple of weeks ago we finally, after a lot of shilly-shallying, managed to get the new album ready, once and for all. Even though it has taken quite some time to complete, it has totally been worth the wait and effort. The level of satisfaction at this point, is just mind-blowing and we are all really proud of what we've accomplished, as a team, this time around.
"The album, going under the name of 'Death Meditations,' will see the light of day, mid-spring, via the Dutch label Vic Records. Cover artwork, titles, promo-pictures and a sneak preview YouTube trailer, will be posted shortly, so be sure to keep an eye open for that! In the meantime, we hope that the new Myspace design (thank you Nea) is to your satisfaction and delight!
"Happy new year everyone! More news as it happens!"

The first album to be released under the recently announced partnership between Cold Records from Sweden and Metal Blade Records, "Yersinia Pestis" is being described in an official press release as "the mean bastard son of DARK FUNERAL, DEICIDE and HYPOCRISY, the perfect link between death and black metal with hints of thrash every now and then."
The CD was recorded at Black Lounge Studios in Sweden with producer Jonas Kjellgren (CARNAL FORGE, CENTINEX). The artwork was handled by Pär Johansson.
