"Recently we signed a non-exclussive distribution deal with New Zealand heathens, Satanica Productions. We welcome them to our family, and hope this unity is a long and prosperous one! You can find information about their works at www.xatanica.synthasite.com.
"And finally, as some of you know, we have had problems maintaining drummers in the past. And hence, have been drummerless since early June this year after good friend, Trevor Owen parted ways once again. But recently we have been rehearsing with a new drummer, and prospects are looking good at this stage Fingers crossed this person will work out, and if so, an update will be made in the not too distant future to reveal the creatures identity!"
