Mistress Call It A Day

Sludge-grind UK outfit MISTRESS and rock quintet EXPLODER have both decided to call it a day. The overlapping personnel involved in the two bands has been making music together in various forms for a number of years. Multi-instrumentalist Mick Kenney's side project FROST is also to be no more. Each of these projects has been successful in their own right; MISTRESS having produced four unique albums, appeared on BBC's "Never Mind The Buzzcocks" and toured with then-labelmates MUNICIPAL WASTE; FROST's LPs being described as "the albums MAYHEM should have made" by Kerrang! magazine and EXPLODER opening Bloodstock 2007 alongside former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade.

The clear-out will leave Kenney and MISTRESS vocalist Dave more free to concentrate on ANAAL NATHRAKH — who will be performing at the first ever Feto Obliteration Fest (London, UK), as well as at the Maryland Deathfest (USA) in May, and at Hellfest (France) in June. Guitarist Misery will be continue to play bass in the live line up of ANAAL NATHRAKH, and will also be working on a new yet-to-be named project. Mick also has a brand new band in the pipeline and claims it contains all elements of everything he has done in the past and more. Guitarist Drunk is currently rumored to be working with post-punk "forbidden lovers of the first whore" BEE STUNG LIPS. MISTRESS bassist/EXPLODER singer Dirty Von Donovan is as yet biding his time and oiling his biceps. Dave is also scheduled to be recording a new album with death metal veterans BENEDICTION very soon, with Mick lined up to produce.

The bands leave behind them a rich legacy of abject misery, self abuse, bleak obsession with evil and fist-in-the-air, pelvic rock.

Feto Obliteration Fest will take place on May 2 at the London Underworld, featuring ANAAL NATHRAKH, RAMESSES, THEOKTONY and DEADWEIGHT.
