One of Spain's most legendary Death Metal bands, CANKER, formed in 1990, are finally going to see their 3rd album "Earthquake" released next September through Xtreem Music.
Originally recorded back in 2005, "Earthquake" never saw the light of day due to various problems, but it is now when it'll finally be released. Containing 10 songs, this album keeps the band's identity intact, that killer Death Metal with a thrashing edge and a total old school feel always owned by CANKER.
Cover artwork for "Earthquake" had been painted by spanish artist Jose Vives who already did covers for bands like GOAT WORSHIP, ITNUVETH & RETROFAITH amongst many others.
Release date, tracklist, advance songs and other info will be revealed in the coming weeks, so stay tuned! You can visit CANKER's official Facebook here: www.facebook.com/canker.granada
Spanish legendary Death Metal band CANKER, will see their three albums re-issued through Xtreem Music during 2014/2015. Formed back in 1990 under the name of POST MORTEM, they soon changed into CANKER and released a killer demo in 1991 where they started to make waves within the national scene, becoming one of the leading acts back then.
First planned re-issue, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the album, is the band's acclaimed debut "Physical" released in 1994, which was produced by no other than Colin Richardson (Carcass, Bolt Thrower, Napalm Death, Cannibal Corpse, Gorefest...), and remains as one of the top Death Metal albums within the Spanish scene. This one will come out as a double CD containing the band's Demo '91 as well as the very first and unreleased 6-song Demo '90 under the name of POST MORTEM. Release date hasn't been set yet, but will be around Sept./Oct. 2014.
Next one will be the 2nd album from 1997 "Exquisite Tenderness", an album that was released through their own manager back then, who gave them no promotion and distribution at all making of this album a rare item and an underrated work. This re-issue will feature brand new cover artwork as well as some live bonus tracks from '95. No release date for this one yet.
Last of the three re-issues, although this one isn't really a re-issue, but a proper release, is the band's 3rd album "Earthquake", which was recorded back in 2005 and remained unreleased until now, so this one will come out during 2015 to coincide with the 10th anniversary of such recording.
We're sure all Spanish extreme Metal maniacs will applaud this series or re-issues since this band means an alive legend within our scene and only the most expert foreign maniacs will know CANKER from back in the days, but don't worry!! Both old and new generations will be able to re-discover this awesome band of intense and technical Death Metal with a Thrashy edge full of killer riffs and melodies!!
