Sweden's Feral has checked in with the following album update and announcement about lineup changes:
"We are thrilled to announce that the pre-productions of the next Feral album are done. More than enough songs have been written/recorded during these sessions for us to be able to put together one hell of an album to say the least.
"You can check out some of our recording process below in the eminent studio documentary that was filmed and edited by Cristoffer Strand.
"News regarding the actual recording of the album will be announced as soon as they are available, needless to say we now feel completely up for the task that lays ahead and are fully confident about the material that we have in store for you guys.
"These pre-productions were however the last recordings that drummer Rickard Lundmark and guitarist Petter Nilsson will do with the band, as we have decided to part ways. This is due to other commitments and there is absolutely no bad blood between the band and the two former members.
"Of course we are sad to see two of the founding members (as well as two of our best friends) leave. But we wish them the best of luck in all their future endeavors and know that they will in some way or another always be part of that which is Feral.
"There is however no reason to be alarmed as this will in no way slow down the future plans of the band and our goals stays the same. For the time being Roger Markström (Leviathan, ex-Armagedda) will be aiding us from behind the drums and the search for a guitar player is ongoing. We thank you all for your support, stay tuned!"

"For those wondering what Feral have been up to during the second half of 2011 and what our plans for 2012 are.
"After returning from the very successful tour with Demonical, Arroganz and Gloria Morti and playing a killer show at Trästockfestivalen in Skellefteå last summer we have started to polish on our new material.
"A couple of pre-production recordings have been made and have given us a chance to get the feel of what the new material brings to the table, so far we can tell you that this is some of the most intense and groove-ridden death metal we have ever conjured. At this date we have recorded six tracks and our vault is far from empty, stretching from ominously slow, blistering fast and everything in between this is as well some of our most varied and dynamic songs yet.
"We cannot tell when any new recordings will be revealed, but the new material has slowly started to make it's way into our live-set. Which is a great way for us to try the songs out.
"We are searching for labels interested in handling our future releases and as always we are looking for gigs where ever possible in order to spread the putrid gospel of death."
