Avulsed Comments On 20th Anniversary Plans

Spanish death metal act Avulsed has issued the following update about the band's plans for its 20th anniversary:

"2011 is the year! The year of the 20th anniversary of Avulsed, the most constant & veteran death metal band from Spain, formed back in August 1991, being the most active live band not only within Spain, but also around the world (4 Euro-tours, Russia, USA, Japan, Mexico, South & Central America...), always carrying the flag of the most genuine death metal. Having spawned 5 full length albums, 3 demos, 2 EP's and other releases making a total of 10 CD's & a DVD, the band feels stronger than ever and of course ready to prepare something special to commemorate these 20 years surviving trends & fashions and never wimping out!

"During the 1st half of 2011, a total of 18 songs taken from all their albums, will be re-recorded for a CD entitled 'Fleshcube.' Instead of just doing a compilation with the original recordings (that would be too easy & cheap), the band decided to re-record all these songs with the current line-up, the current guitar sound (way heavier than before), their current drummer (who has empowered the playing of the songs) and in general, the usual modifications that each song suffers after being played for years and years. In resume, it'll be an album with only the best songs of the band. No fillers, just classics! A special limited edition will be released, most probably a box containing a double CD, exclusive shirt, stickers, photos and other goodies, limited to the first ones to come, but it's still undecided how it'll be. We'll keep you informed!

"Needless to say that Avulsed will be presenting 'Fleshcube' after its release, planned sometime after summer, playing all these killer songs, while still working on the composition of new tunes for their 6th full length album tentatively to be recorded in 2012 with the working title of 'Ritual Zombi,' a title written in Spanish, but perfectly understandable in English too, which not only in tribute to Death, of course, but also will serve to introduce the zombie element into Avulsed's lyrics to make them not just brutal, gore & macabre, but fucking horrifying as well.

"Also, 2011 means the first agreement ever made between Avulsed and a management. Stigia Promotions & Management will handled, from now on, all negotiations regarding shows & tours for the band, so if anyone is interested in booking Avulsed on their city or festival, please, get in touch directly with: jordi@stigia.org

"A few shows for Avulsed are already confirmed for 2011. Two imminent shows, one in Zaragoza and other in Barcelona (4th Brutal noise Fest.) and then other international festivals confirmed in USA (Maryland Deathfest), Denmark (KillTown Deathfest), Germany (Way of Darkness) plus Spanish Leyendas del Rock Festival. More shows will be confirmed during the next months, so check this location for more info!

"In late 2010, Avulsed recorded a cover of Black Sabbath’s song 'Neon Knights' for an upcoming double CD in tribute to Ronnie James DIO, including some of the most relevant Spanish Metal bands. Avulsed is the only Death Metal band on this compilation and without any doubt this will be the heaviest and most brutal song on the whole tribute!

"Regarding merchandise, the band issued a new T-shirt motive called 'Breaking Hymens,' limited to 50 units of which some of them have already been sold at shows and a few are still left, so hurry up if you want to get one of this ultra-brutal design!! A few full coloured 'Reanimations' shirts are still available as well plus other motives and also hoodies, etc."
