Reactivated German thrashers ASSASSIN will headline the True Thrash Fest on March 27-28, 2010 in Osaka, Japan. Also scheduled to appear are AT WAR (USA), WARPATH (U.K.) and several to-be-announced Japanese bands. ASSASSIN will perform on both days.

ASSASSIN recently parted ways with drummer Frank Nellen ans replaced him with Björn Sondermann (WICKED KEMAO). The band has also acquired a new bassist in the shape of Joachim Kremer (SKINNY BOLD etc.).

"The band is busy finishing songs for the next album and are currently searching for a new record label." According to the group, the upcoming CD will feature "old-school thrash with a modern touch!"

ASSASSIN took part in the "Chris Witchhunter Memorial Concert" on April 11, 2009 at Turbinenhalle in Oberhausen, Germany. The event honored late SODOM drummer Chris Dudek (a.k.a. Witchhunter), who died on September 8, 2008 due to vital organ failure.
