German melodic gothic metal band CREMATORY, who split up in spring 2001 after a successful, decade-long career, are apparently contemplating a comeback. The following is a message from the group posted on the Nuclear Blast Records web site:"Somehow, somewhere and sometime we will probably come back! That's what it said on our Homepage in the last news snippet in the spring of 2002. And we are, though not completely, but at least with a little proof of life for our fans, BACK!!!
After immense begging we recorded a cover of METALLICA's cult song 'One' explicitly for the METALLICA tribute album 'A Tribute to the Four Horsemen' (December 2002 release). This has been such great fun that after the recording session was over, we talked about an eventual comeback of CREMATORY. We have now begun writing new songs, and after we see how they turn out, we will decide if the comeback will really happen."
