Norway's Zareptha has issued the following announcement about streaming new songs online:
"Zareptha proudly presents a brand new myspace-layout, new pictures, and most important four tracks from our new album! I have been working my ass off the last week putting the puzzle together, and finally the new site is up with new design and new pictures and the tracks 'Klanimals,' 'Dying Place,' 'Slug Supremacy' and 'Laceration In Segregation' have been uploaded.
"Additionally, I have recorded guitar tracks to a new song we are working on, in Krutt's studio. Krutt has already recorded the drum tracks and Jiih added bass yesterday. We will soon be starting on the vocal-lines. I'll make sure the demo will be uploaded for a period of time.
Zareptha wishes to thank Antiminister (aka Antichris) for the photo shoot and the great photos. We know we can be a real pain in the ass (haha), but you went ahead and did the job anyway! You rock, man!"
Norway's Zareptha has issued the following announcement about finishing a new album:
"Cheers! We're happy to announce that our record is done and ready. Just the formalities before Zareptha will be streaming four songs here on myspace - and the whole album will be available on iTunes and Spotify. We are currently practicing hard, working on three new songs and playing our live-set over and over and over again. We simply cannot wait to get out there on a scene again and play! That's what we live for.
"If you happen to be in Oslo on November the 13th, get your ass to Hausmania and 'Monsters of Metal 2010.' Zareptha will be playing that night. New songs will probably be uploaded in about a week. Have a nice one!"
Norwegian metallers Zareptha have issued the following update about parting ways with their guitarist:
"Sorry for the total lack of communication the last months. We have been dealing with some issues that's kind of sad. Unfortunately, our good friend and most excellent guitar player, Kølla, has decided to leave Zareptha. I would like to thank him for his contribution to our music and for all the good times. At the same time I would like to mention that his departure has nothing to do with arguments, fights etc. Kølla's new job, forced him to move to Oslo and it became pretty much impossible for him to dedicate as much time to Zareptha as he used to. You will be missed, buddy!
"We have not started to look for an replacement because we want to finish the record first. What we do now in the whole record-process, is listening to different mixes and adjusting sounds as we go. We are almost there, and can't wait to upload it to myspace. I am finishing the guitar and vocal adjustments next week. Krutt and Jiih is pretty much done. In other words the whole record is soon ready for mastering.
"It is also worth mentioning that we have shortened our name to just Zareptha. This is because that's what everybody calls us (including ourselves) and easier to remember. Anyway, Zareptha is alive and breathing. We are working on finding a proper scene for our release concert/party. Date and place will be announced. There you go! An update from the Zareptha camp!"
