Malignant Tumour Pulls Out Of USF3

Malignant Tumour has been forced to pull out of France's United Sickness Fest 3, which is being scheduled for October 23rd with bands such as Rotten Sound, Inhumate, Recueil Morbide, Rectal Smegma, Tortured Soul, Rubufaso Mukufo, and Trepan Dead.

, . Here's the message from Bilos:

"I am very sorry to tell this, but MALIGNANT TUMOUR can not take a part for UNITED SICKNESS FEST 3 and I tell you why. At our last tour in beginning of October our guitarist KORAL injured his hand and he can´t move with this that time. He went for doctor and got the answer that hand will be OK within the two weeks. Now it´s already three weeks after and he still can not move with his hand properly nor he can play guitar now. We feel really bad now and hopefully you can understand our situation. We thought to play as three piece, but without the leads and fourth person you will never get full attack of MT so we decided to cancell the show and wait till his hand will recover."

The Red Chord Announces East Coast Shows

Forced to miss its European tour with Rotten Sound and Aborted due to the effects of the recent volcano in Iceland, The Red Chord has lined up two shows for fans on the East Coast. The shows are as follows:

April 24 - New England Metal and Hardcore Fest in Worcester, MA
April 25 - Brooklyn, NY - Public Assembly with Premonitions Of War and Tiger Flowers.

Kozowyk offers this explanation about the European tour, "We did everything we could to make it to this European tour with Rotten Sound and Aborted. Unfortunately, our best efforts couldn't get The Red Chord or Those Who Lie Beneath onto the continent until it was far too late. The remainder of the tour is uncertain, but if Rotten Sound and Aborted continue with the rest of it, we strongly advise and appreciate your support of the remaining shows. We will do our best to make up shows before the end of the year and we thank the bands, agents and fans for their patience and understanding during this ridiculous situation."

Rotten Sound Signs To Relapse Records

Finnish metallers Rotten Sound have signed a new record deal with Relapse Records. The band's latest album "Cycles" was released in January of 2008 and debuted at #12 on the Finnish charts. Rotten Sound are currently writing for their follow-up to "Cycles," but will first see an EP release early next year. The EP, titled "Napalm," is scheduled for a March release via Relapse. Additional details on this release will be announced soon.

Rotten Sound's Niinimaa commented on the recent signing; “Relapse Records has been a strong label for grindcore since they started, which is one of the reasons that made us want to re-release our 'Murderworks' album through them in 2005. We will fit to their roster like a fist to an ass. Being along the same line with other label-mates is very important for us because we want to tour all over this planet with bands we like ourselves. The upcoming 'Napalm' EP and the next full-length album will start a new and (even) more aggressive era for Rotten Sound. Doing it together with Relapse Records will make this period more grind than any of our phases before.”

Bolt Thrower has released this bit of news regarding their first trip to the USA in 14 years:

"Due to the fact that we are not real festival lovers or great fans of flying, the chances of us ever coming to the States for a one-off show was always very small. But after years of relentless emails from Ryan we've finally given in. It's hard to believe that it's been 14 years since we last played in the US, so we are very happy to announce that we are finally coming back. Bolt Thrower will be playing Maryland Deathfest VII, on May 22-24, 2009, at Sonar, Baltimore, MD."

A few more bands were exected to be included in this announcement, but the organizers are still working on the details. Therefore, another announcement is expected with even more band confirmations in the near future, as they wrap up the booking process for Maryland Deathfest 2009
