Krisiun To Release European Mini CD

Krisiun, have been a trademark for musical violence and a steady nominee for the title of the globe's fastest Death Metal act throughout their twelve years of existence. Still, it is high time to reconsider your preconceived notions about the band. "Bloodshed" (recorded 100% analog) may not be a full new studio-album, but it's no less than 8 brand-new tracks (incl. 3 intros/outros) that show a different side of the band. It also includes four re-mastered tracks of their rare "Unmerciful Order" MCD, which was originally released in 1993 and today is being hailed as a cult underground release. "Bloodshed" grinds -- but not solely in the sense of sonic assaults crafted out of insane speed. Without losing any of their intensity, Krisiun went for some mid-paced songs that will surely surprise anybody who thought the band wouldn't be capable combining raw brutality with an ultimate technical edge and pounding groove riffs. Those who are worried about one of the last advocates of the extreme selling-out can be relieved: Unholy compositions like "Slain Fate," "Ominous" and "Visions Beyond" are underlined by the raw fury of the early tracks from "Unmerciful Order": Tracks eight through eleven bear witness that Krisiun have been and will always be a guarantee for ultra-violence. The 7-minute outro "MMIV" shows another side of the band with its spooky, almost 80's horror-film feel. Just make sure not to hit the repeat-button too early on this track. Despite a total playing-time of 40 minutes, "Bloodshed" will be available for the fan-friendly price of a mid-priced CD. About the time "Bloodshed" is released, Krisiun will go out for another round of the relentless live shows for which they are so famous. They will embark on the European "Clash Of Demigods" tour with co-headliners Behemoth and with support from Incantation and Ragnarok. Be warned that blood will be shed...

I thought their new CD was called Promo Advance? Anyway, it's a good CD, although the final 4 tracks sound like they were recorded in a basement.
