Drawn and Quartered Issues Year End Update

Drawn and Quartered has issued the following year end update:

"Hails to all METAL WARLORDS! Here is the end of the year news for Seattle's own DRAWN and QUARTERED. In early spring 2009 we recorded the demo 'Conquerors of Sodom' a happy little ditty intended for the long awaited EVIL DEATH METAL 7" series and compilation, and agreed to a T shirt deal with RELAPSE RECORDS. I was informed by Eli Shaika from RELAPSE RECORDS that the artwork had recently been completed so the project is still in motion... In June we released our first ever DVD on MORIBUND CULT RECORDINGS. This package includes some live footage and photo gallery from the 'ASSAULT OF EVIL TOUR' 2008, High Quality final cuts of our 3 music videos, and over twenty vintage performances dating back to 1996 featuring the early era of D&Q and songs from the first two records, and early demos. The second era of DRAWN AND QUARTERED began in 2002, with our demo 'Crusaders of Blasphemy' then a SODOM cover, a 7" and 4 more records, this era had come to an end in mid 2008, when Greg Reeves quit. After regrouping Herb began playing bass, as we continued writing our next record. So far we have about 12 songs were are working on, ten will be on our upcoming demo we are woring on. The era of the DRAWN AND QUARTERED reboot V3.0 has begun. Now we are the unholy triumvirate of freakin' evil! This the first year since 1996 we haven't played a show! The wait will be worth it! The new music is tighter, faster and more solid than ever, the guitar riffs and bass lines accompanied by relentless double bass and blast beats creating the most sinister foundation of dark,brutal blackened death metal we can muster! This year will see the continuation of this demo and writing, and a return to the recording studio for real, and release of album #6! We are having our website redone, our logo reworked and artwork for a new T shirt, but Gabriel Byrne, as well as our next record cover is being discussed. And finally a return to the stage, but this will be a DRAWN AND QUARTERED you haven't seen before, performing a mix of older classics as well as amazing new material, we want to do this right. We are upgrading some technical aspects of our sound and performance, and we're looking forward to putting the 'show on the road' sometime in the future. I'm looking forward to an excellent new year, I hope you all have a good one!"
