Now 2015 sees the band returning to their most classic 90's sound, with a neat and powerful production and fucking memorable songs that will for sure please every PURTENANCE fan!!

It was in 1992 when two promising bands from the swedish & finnish Death Metal scenes, released a split album, that now, 23 years later, it's one of the most cult splits ever released in the early 90's. Unfortunately, CARTILAGE never recorded anything after that and although ALTAR did a few demos later on, they disbanded shortly after.
But the legacy still lives here and this split album originally released through former Xtreem Music label Drowned Productions, gets a re-issue in form of a double CD with 7 bonus tracks by each band taken from their early demos, a total of 14 songs (60 min.) from each one.
All songs have been remastered (not remixed!) for an optimal sound, preserving the essence from the originals and this release comes with a new cover artwork, a remake of the original one made by cult finnish artist Turkka G. Rantanen. Of course, original cover art is included on the release and booklet comes with extra photos, flyers & demo covers to complete this cult re-issue. However, we know that purists won't be satisfied with this release, so they can always go and pay a fortune on eBay to get the original (if they can). No hard feelings! For the rest, here you have a new chance to get this gem in an improved and extended way at a reasonable price. A vinyl version with the original split album tracks, will follow in the future.
Legendary british Crossover/ Thrash/ Punk pioneers CEREBRAL FIX will be entering Framework Studios in Birmingham on August 1st 2015 to record the band's fifth studio album to date, the first one in 23 years after their album "Death Erotica" in 1992.
Penned for an October/November 2015 release through Xtreem Music with a working title of "Disaster of Reality", the new album will feature new singer Al Osta (RAVENS CREED - Xtreem Music) and the return of Steve Watson on bass, also from RAVENS CREED, who already played in CEREBRAL FIX from '87-'89 together with Andy Baker (ex-SACRILEGE, VARUKERS, WARWOUND...) on drums along with original members Tony Warburton and Gregg Fellows on guitars. This means the old line-up that recorded their classic debut album "Life Sucks..." ('88) except former vocalist Simon Forrest who left the band in late 2014.
The album release will coincide with the band's appearance at Birmingham's FeatFest show in October 2015. As soon as recordings are finished and artwork is ready, we'll reveal both as well as settle a release date for the album, so stay tuned and check out CEREBRAL FIX's official website here: www.facebook.com/CerebralFixDirtbirds and you can listen to the two latest songs recorded by the band in 2014 for a split 7"EP featuring Simon Forrest on vocals right here:

One of their highest points back in early 90's, was the release of a split album with DEMIGOD and a 7"EP titulado "Never to Be Forgotten", although it wasn't until 2011 when they released their debut full length "Bloodwork" on a small finnish label without any kind of impact due to its lack of promotion & distribution, which wasn't an obstacle to get them signed to Xtreem Music that would release a MCD in 2013 entitled "Psychopath Next Door".
Now NECROPSY comes with a 2nd album, stronger than ever, under the title of "Buried in the Woods", offering another dose of heavy, crushing, catchy and rotting Death Metal that will for sure please every fan of the good old finnish Death Metal from early 90's like FUNEBRE, PURTENANCE, CONVULSE, ABHORRENCE, DEPRAVITY...

Two years after the recording of their acclaimed album "Ritual Zombi", spanish Death Metal legends AVULSED returns with a new recording in form of a 5-song EP entitled "Altar of Disembowelment" that marks the band's recording debut for new drummer Erik Raya.
Stylistically, "Altar of Disembowelment" continues the unmistakeable sound of AVULSED, forged during almost 25 years, but this time, the 4 new songs sounds a bit heavier and darker than ever before, with their traditional essence firmly rooted in the old finnish & swedish schools with a Bolthrowerish spice and the fucking low vocal register that forever remains intact in AVULSED.
The EP was recorded in three diferent studios and mixed at Overhead Studios by Raúl Fournier "Furni", ex-drummer of AVULSED between 1994-2004 for a later mastering at Unisound Studios by Dan Swanö.
Besides the 4 new songs, there's a cover version of BLACK SABBATH's "Neon Knight" that was initially recorded in late 2010 for a tribute album to DIO that ended up being a fiasco and instead of using that recording, the band decided to re-record it again for this EP.
Cover artwork for "Altar of Disembowelment" was again work of Juanjo Castellano who was also responsible behind the masterpiece cover art of "Ritual Zombi" who surpassed himself once again creating another absolutely astonishing artwork.
Track listing for "Altar of Disembowelment" is as follows:
1. To Sacrifice and Devour
2. Red Viscera Serology
3. Ceremony of Impalement
4. Tremble in the Darkness
5. Neon Knights (Black Sabbath)
Release date for the CD version of "Altar of Disembowelment" is settled for September 9th through Xtreem Music, right before the band's European Tour and the vinyl version on 10" format, will be released at the same time by greek label Screaming Victims Distro on a limited edition of 500 copies with 100 units on each five different colours (black, red, blue, clear & marble). You can visit AVULSED's official website here: www.avulsed.com and you can listen to an exclusive advance track of the EP on the following links:
