The latest addition to XTREEM MUSIC's rooster
are New York's WASTEFORM!! After a split CD
and a full length entitled "Crushing The Reviled" , the band
has just finished the recording of their 2nd opus "Innocence
For those who aren't familiar with WASTEFORM,
we can say it's a really brutal, heavy and catchy yet technical Death Metal
pretty much in the vein of early 90's NY Death Metal a la SUFFOCATION, PYREXIA,
INTERNAL BLEEDING... with a hint of DYING FETUS too.
The album will include the following songs:
01. Prelude To Apocalypse
02. Ignorance Through Sovereignity
03. Of Blind Consequence...
04. Built For The Kill
05. Faith Is Dead
06. Cycles Of Tyranny
07. Victims Bleeding
08. In The Shadows Of Resurgence
09. The Wrath
10. Indulge Divergent Senses
The album "Innocence Through Sovereignity"
is planned for an early/ mid December release. For more info about the band
and mp3 samples, please check www.wasteform.com
AVULSED leaves AvantGarde Music!! According to an statement on the band's official
"Yes, only 7 months after the release of our third album "Yearning
For The Grotesque", we have decided not to continue our relationship with
Avantgarde Music even when we had a two album-deal signed with them. This was
something we already agreeded just few weeks after the albums release, but we
didn't want to make it official until now. However, a mutual and friendly agreement
has been reached and the band is now free and looking for a new deal. We're
actually negotiating with four labels for a possible deal towards the release
of the band's 4th album due to be recorded in Summer 2004. However, other offers
might be considered as well.
The main reasons for the band's departure from the label were the lack of support
both in promotion and touring facilities, as well as a deficient distribution
policy that didn't reach the band's minimal expectations. Even though the album
has sold pretty well, we consider our label could have done better for us, but
the fact is that they never put any interest on it, and this has caused a serious
step back in the band's career, which is a shame, because this album is by far
the best AVULSED effort.
Soon the will be news about the label who will sign AVULSED. We hope not to
commit the same mistake twice...".
French brutal Death Metallers KRONOS have inked a deal with Xtreem Music.
Their second album "Colossal Titan Strife" will be recorded
in August at the CCR Studios in Belgium (same as used by ABORTED, NO RETURN...).
Studios sessions for this opus will finish in September 6th and the band is
now finishing the writing proccess for the album that promises to be much more
brutal than their debut "Titan's Awakening" from 2001.
The band has recently lost their 2nd guitarist Nicolas Temmar and is now looking
for a replacement. "Colossal Titan Strife" will hit the shelves
in December 2003, so watch out for one of France's most brutal acts!!

After a successful tour of 8 dates through Australia last February, Ireland's
most legendary and brutal Grind/ Death act ABADDON INCARNATE
have decided to accept the loss of their insane bassist and good friend Cory
Sloan. As a result, the band is seeking a replacement to fill his rather large
shoes. If you are interested in what they are... please e-mail your info to
The band is still working hard on new songs for their long awaited 3rd album
tentatively called "Sountrack For Rape"
to be recorded in october again in Sweden at Soundlab Studios with Mieszko Talarczyk
(NASUM). Most probably, the album will have Rogga from their labelmates PAGANIZER
doing some backing vocals!!
After some months of negotiations, Xtreem Music is proud to announce the signing
of the most promising swedish newcomer: VERMINOUS. A killer threesome
whose only purpose is to bring back the evil times of the darkest old school
swedish Death Metal. If you consider yourself a true worshipper of GROTESQUE
(pre-AT THE GATES), look no further, these are the best inheritors, although
their music is quite faster and even more aggressive!!
VERMINOUS was formed by Linus Björklund (guitars/ vocals), Pelle
Melander (Guitars) and Andreas Johansson (drums) in August 2002 from the ashes
of their former band DELVE, who have a MCD entitled "The Dead Amongst"
through Greek label Nuclear Winter Rec. In December 2002, VERMINOUS recorded
their first official proof of existence in the form of a 7"EP also for
the same label.
The band is now working on the last pieces for their debut album "Impious
Sacrilege" that's going to be recorded in April at the JFK Studios
and leter mastered at the infamous Necromorbus Studios for a release scheduled
in June 2003.
AVULSED's vocalist Dave Rotten was diagnosed a small fracture on a rib
after their latest presentation of their brand new album "Yearning For
The Grotesque" in their hometown Madrid last March 15th.
As Dave Rotten stated: "During the show, and after one of my usual and
multiple stage divings I noticed a terrible pain on my chest. However, the heat
over the stage and adrenaline did a good job, because I could finish the show
(we played like 105 minutes!!) without real problems. Days passed and I still
had that pain on my chest, but I though that was the typical one after a beat,
you know... so after a week I decided to visit the medics and they practised
me an x-ray, so we saw one of the ribs was slightly broken. No big deal, it's
just that I can't sing for at least a month. The good thing is that casually,
this show was the last one after a series of 10 shows we did through Spain and
we didn't have any more booked until May, because we were supposed to do an
European tour in April (with CANNIBAL CORPSE, but it didn't happen in the end),
so it's a perfect time for me to recover".
In other news, AVULSED will take part in the very biggest Rock Festival
in Spain next May 3rd. The Viña Rock 2003 is expected to surpass 55.000
people, after seeing the last years' success (45.000 maniacs). This festival,
with 5 stages and all kinds of Rock music, gathers the best and more renowned
Rock & Metal acts mainly from Spain, and it's the very first time a Death
Metal band plays there!!
The most recent addition to Xtreem Music's roosters are german Death Metallers
MISANTHROPIC, a rather new band in the

one demo released in the year 2002. This 5 songs recording got them to sign
a deal with Xtreem Music and the band is finishing the songs for their debut
album "Soulreaver" due to
be recorded during March.

class Death Metal with a heavy and catchy sound, mixing both melody and brutality
and also elements from the old school Death Metal in the vein of DEMIGOD, as
well as modern styled influences a la CENTINEX, GOD DETHRONED, etc.

point to enhance their high quality compositions which will undoubtely please
