Swedish guitarist David Parland (NECROPHOBIC, DARK FUNERAL, INFERNAL) has issued the following update:
"Since I literally have been out of the scene for some good time and living under a rock (wasting even my own creativity and a lot of time), I for some strange reason feel NOW is the time to restart everything. Why exactly now I do not know, but I work on 'if it feels right...it is right.'
"So the main reason for me reaching out again right now is because of the new music band/project I am creating. This is right now in the making. There is sadly not too much I can reveal at this moment, other than 1) it will be a return to more of a death metal style with black and thrash metal influences. But it will be brutal and catchy and very melodic. 2) Tomas Asklund (ex-DARK FUNERAL, DISSECTION, INFERNAL) is the drummer and other core member, and right now we are in the songwriting process.
"We will put up excerpts from the coming demo in a couple of weeks. This will be followed by an album in late 2009, with around 8-9 tracks.
"As for what name this band/project will go under, we will see...all we have tried to come up with so far are either taken or exist in similar forms. But it will be solved what we will be called. This is the least problem right now.
"My final concerns are right now that Infernus (real name: Roger Tiegs) will win the upcoming GORGOROTH case this month. If he doesn't, it's a shame and this means that who everelse can steal a band name regardless of position in a band and regardless if you are the creator or not. Even though it might be a complicated situation, I still say FUCK OFF to the Gaahl/King ov Hell-led version.
"Although I do not know these guys, it is pretty obvious that there is really nothing SATANIC about these guys. Who the fuck can believe in this fake theatre?"
