Infernal Re-Recording Upcoming EP "The Infernal Return"

Sweden's Infernal has issued the following announcement about re-recording the tracks for "The Infernal Return," their upcoming EP:

"Re-recordings of the first tracks are very soon finished, and will be released as a 7" special gatefold EP by underground cult label GoatHorned Productions. These re-recordings had to be done because of several reasons, but only one main reason really forced us to do this. Our previous drummer Tomas Asklund has refused to let us use the original recordings, since he plays (the drums) on them, and as well did the engineering job while I laid down the vocals at his Monolith studio, earlier this year. When we split up with him (on mutual terms) and after some serious and longer time going problems, (apparently felt from both sides, we don´t blame Tomas for what has happened, but these re-recordings would by no means been necessary if we would have been able to use original ones).

"We wanted to use the original recordings for this particular 7’ Ep, but he said that he wouldn't agree to that under any circumstances. This despite given the options to simply erase his contributions/drum tracks, but this was not accepted from him either, despite us offering him to pay money for the studio time being used. So to get this 7 ‘ Ep out, we have had to re-record everything from scratch, although it of course felt somewhat unnecessary, since we already got the stuff recorded. However, After some thinking and planning, we thought ‘Ok let´s do this all over again’ and as well let our new drummer extraordinaire Carl Engström (from Norway) do his ‘trial by fire’ wih this re-recording, in about one week.

"So, now these songs are very soon re-recorded and ready for release by GoatHorned (early next year). Check the cover illustration for this special EP entitled ‘The Infernal Return.’ Of course, this special EP is just a cool thing, the main thing now is to finish the writing of the coming full-length in 2010. ‘(T.I.R).’ This is the one and only goal now. We have 75 % of the material at the moment fro the album, and are right now in talks with a certain wellknown label about releasing it. Anyway, regardless of which label that will end up releasing the album, it will contain 9 songs and and an intro and outro and will hopfully be out around Autumn 2010.

"BTW, Here´s some footage of me (David) putting down the vocals to the re-recordings of the track ‘Godforsaken’ on Youtube, from my own Hell studio...(recorded with a cheap video cam and edited with WMM, so the quality is not very good, but this little clip still captures the essence of
what INFERNAL are all about, and always will)."
