Peter Tuthill Joins Carnal Forge

Former CONSTRUCDEAD/current GODSIC frontman Peter Tuthill has issued the following update:

"In November I got the opportunity to try out for the Swedish metal band CARNAL FORGE as singer! Having been a fan of their music since they released their debut, there was no hesitation from my part to try out. I went to Sala and did a couple of auditions, and shortly after I got the job!"

"This has been secret up 'till now, so I couldn't tell you all earlier. In March-April CARNAL FORGE will hit the road and do a European co-headline tour with the legendary British thrashers ONSLAUGHT! The band will also play numerous festivals this summer, and more tours are on the horizon. For the time being I need to focus all my energy on CARNAL FORGE, so the last recordings for the GODSIC album [Peter's solo project] will unfortunately have to be put on hold for the time being. I will have this album out sometime during this year though, but at this point I can't say when. Hope to see some of you on the tour!"

CARNAL FORGE's tour with ONSLAUGHT is scheduled to kick off in April. A list of dates can be found at this location.

Construcdead Finish Recording New Album

Swedish metallers CONSTRUCDEAD have issued the following update:

"We have recorded the whole [new CONSTRUCDEAD] album, yet untitled down in Helsingborg with Peter Wildoer and Klas Ideberg from DARKANE. The idea was to record in their studio, Not Quite Studios, but it was flooded the day before we even sat foot in there. So, we got to record elsewhere, though still with Peter and Klas. We have nailed 13 songs but we are not sure if all of them are gonna end up on the album, we'll see. We had a great time recording this album! Got to hang out with some of the local celebs and friends, Björn Strid and Ola Frenning of SOILWORK, Nick Sword of TERROR 2000. Did we mention we drank a shitload of liqour? And yes, we had a guest appearance. Guess who? So right now we are just waiting to get a first mix from Peter and Klas. We will probably put some samples up on the [band's web site] as soon as the whole thing is done."

Songtitles set to appear on CONSTRUCDEAD's fourth album include "Cataclysm", "Transfixed", "My Haven", "Tragic Kingdom", "A Godess Breaches Through Me", "Spiritual Shift", "The One Beside Me" and "No Exit".

Speed Issues Terror 2000, Soilwork Updates

Soilwork frontman Speed has checked in with the following update:

Hi there!

I'm so sorry i haven't posted anything in a while..
I've been recording the vocals for the new Terror 2000 album. We've had so much fuckin' fun in the studio here in Helsingborg.. we decided to take thrash metal to where it never has been before and have no boundaries of what a thrash metal album should or shouldn't contain.. So, it's all in there folks: This album is gonna be the most hilarious, intense, brainless, aggressive, silly, fast, immature and nervewrecking album you ever heard! An example: a thrash metal blues in 285 bpm called "Bloody blues blaster"... stay tune..

We're flying in to Amsterdam tomorrow and we'll play our first european gig for the new album at the Waldrock-festival, can't wait!
Right now we're also setting up a headlining tour in Europe for this fall.. hopefully we'll manage to cover the world before the year is over..

When we come home from Waldrock i'll get my ass over to the Sweden Rock festival and watch some M'y..

Anyways, we'll see you on stage on the festivals! Metal up your ass!

Speed
