Feral Finishes Writing New Album

Following the release of the "From The Mortuary" EP back in December, Swedish death metal group Feral is glad to announce today that the writing for the next full-length album is finally finished. Feral issued this statement:

"We have been working hard since the release of 'Where Dead Dreams Dwell' to not once again end up with a four year gap between albums, but you can all rest assured that this is not something that has been hastily thrown together in order to meet a deadline.

"On contrary, we have put more time in than ever before to fine-tune the material as much as possible in an early stage. 'Where Dead Dreams Dwell' is a though album to follow for us, since we are extremely satisfied with the final results which we landed on. But there is a togetherness in the new material that can only come from playing together for a long time, and doing it often. We are a rehearsing band, and would never write songs in the studio as we record them.

"At the moment we are rehearsing and making the finishing touches to all of the new songs, which are 15 in total. Most of them are already sounding like they should with no further tweaking needed and once all of the material is 100% know by heart and well thought through we will book the studio to record. After recording the songs that fit together the best will but assembled to make out the album. Some fitting album titles have been thrown around, but this will be announced at a later time.

"The new songs range from pure Swedish Death Metal with eerie leads to crushing mid-tempo and slower track as well as some of the fastest and most 'technical' songs Feral has ever put out, all with our punk and thrash influences clearly imbued. More...

Feral Issues New Album Update

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!"

Feral Working On New Material

Sweden's Feral has issued the following 2011 recap and announcement about working on new material:

"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."
