DEAD TO THIS WORLD, the speed/thrash/black metal project led by former IMMORTAL bassist Iscariah, has issued the following update:"After some rehearsals, myself [Iscariah] and Kvitrafn will enter studio on this coming Thursday [June 14] to record the debut album of DEAD TO THIS WORLD. We feel very confident about this now and we are sure this will break some necks. DEAD TO THIS WORLD takes no responsibility for any external or internal damage to your values. This is done for us. If any criminal acts like murder, arson, suicide, mass rape, cop killings, priest molestings, child abusings, grave desecrations etc. occurs in your area....then don't even consider holding us responsible. We work with powers beyond our control...fuck you! May our children maybe one day forgive us for what we are about to do..." DEAD TO THIS WORLD's album is being produced by Bjørnar E Nielsen at Nielsen's Conclave Media Studios in Bergen.
Nielsen, who has produced albums by bands such as HELHEIM, SULPHUR, DEATHCON, AMPERA and VULTURE INDUSTRIES (of whom he is also a member), recently built a new studio with ENSLAVED members Herbrand Larsen and Arve Isdal.
DEAD TO THIS WORLD was originally founded by Iscariah (NECROPHAGIA, ex-IMMORTAL) as a solo project, but was expanded to a full lineup, releasing a three-track demo in 2005. Following the departure of their drummer, Iscariah recently announced that former GORGOROTH member Kvitrafn (SIGFADER, WARDRUNA, JOTUNSPOR, ex-SAHG) would be joining the band to record the new album. Tracks from the original demo can be heard on the band's MySpace page.
