Spain's new Thrash Metal sensation DEATH OVER THREAT have signed with XTREEM MUSIC for the release of their imminent debut album "Sangre" (Blood) which is undoubtely one of the strongest and most surprising recordings within this musical genre in the spanish scene.
"Sangre" is a an album that showcases a really aggressive and intense brand of Thrash Metal which brings to your mind the best moments of SLAYER & SEPULTURA (on their "Arise" days), helped with an over-the-top vocalist which outstands on this band of skilled musicians. The album possess an incredible feeling which is very difficult to find nowadays and it's mainly due to the mature compositions where the excellent production, killer solos, catchy riffs and awesome vocal arrangements, transports you directly to early 90's blending influences from the aforementioned bands and spiced with some Bay Area touches.
Release date for this album is not settled yet, as it's still in design and post-production process, but it's expected sometime in late '08 and early '09. In the meantime you can listen to 4 songs on their official MySpace www.myspace.com/death6over6threat6
The debut album of spanish/swedish band PUTREVORE is scheduled for a September release through XTREEM MUSIC under the title of "Morphed from Deadbreath". PUTREVORE is a project band formed back in 2004 by Dave Rotten (AVULSED/ CHRIST DENIED) on vocals and Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER/ RIBSPREADER) on guitars/ bass with the intention of bringing back the most heavy, purtid and dark sounds of the old school Death Metal directly influenced by bands like INCANTATION, ROTTREVORE, GRAVE, FUNEBRE, DETERIOROT...
The original band's name was DEATHBREATH, but it was changed in summer '07 after seeing that another swedish band emerged later with a similar monicker, so to avoid possible mistakes, a more brutal namd was chosen which suits much better the band's style. Composition of the songs were made between '04-'07 and it was during '07 when recordings took place both in Sweden and Spain with the help of session drummer David Ekevarn, for a later mix and mastering at swedish studios EAP Productions by Ronnie Bjornstrom who did a perfect job capturing the exact sound and feeling that PUTREVORE needed!!
"Morphed from Deadbreath" includes the following 8 songs:
1. Aeon Leviathan
2. Torn From The Abzu
3. The Skies Vomit Sulphur
4. As They Return
5. Obscene Devourment
6. Dark Surgery Of The Ancients
7. From Depths Monstrous
8. Pale Bare Skull
The album cover was made by spanish artist Juanjo Castellano (www.juanjocastellano.com) who already did works for bands like Vomitory, Demoncy, Incantation, Evil Incarnate, etc. amongst many others. PUTREVORE's album cover and three songs from the album can be checked through the band's official website www.putrevore.com / www.myspace.com/putrevore

"Supreme Authority" was recorded during the months of March/ April featuring a special session drummer which is no other than Timo Häkkinen from SOTAJUMALA, who's a really talented musician and lend his killer technical skills and speed-of-light drumming for this great album!!
Cover art for this release was done by the amazing greek artist George "Grin", and it's definitely an awesome piece of art which is at the same level of renowned names like Dan Seagrave and similars.
KATAPLEXIA will also attend to the most brutal festival in Europe this summer that will take place in germany on 12th-14th June 2008 (www.deathfeast.de) where they're going to celebrate their release party as well.
Yesterday night, our drummer Ricky suffered a loss of coscience and once in the hospital he remained in the Intensive Care Unit. It seems like he suffered a small brain stroke or something like that. this is, one of the veins was broken and some blood was spilled, so he need some surgery to take that blood out.
At this point we don't know much about it, since he liked 200 km away, and this is the information provided to us by his girlfriend, but what it's sure is that we'll have to cancel the AVULSED performance at the DELIRIUM FESTIVAL that's taking place near Paris 8France) next Saturday 19th of April. Also, right now we're not sure if we'll be able to perform at the UNDERGROUND METAL FEST in Lyon (France) next saturday 26th of April as well. We still have to see how Ricky develops from this and then we'll see, although this really doesn't depend on us.
We're very sorry for not being able to perform at the DELIRIUM FESTIVAL on which AVULSED was the headliner sharing the bill with quite some cool bands like HACRIDE + NO RETURN + DEGRADEAD + EMBRYONIC CELLS + HYSTHERESY + E-VICE. We hope our fans and the organizers will understand us in this critical situation and we really hope to play at next year's edition of the festival.
