Former CANCER Members Complete Work On HAIL OF FIRE Demo

HAIL OF FIRE, the new band featuring former CANCER members Carl Stokes (drums), Dave Leitch (lead guitars), Barry Savage (lead guitars), and Ian Buchanan (bass), along with newcomer Rob Lucas on vocals, have launched their official web site at www.hailoffire.co.uk. The group, whose musical direction is said to be "more brutal than the last CANCER albums" (according to Stokes), recently completed work on a four-song demo at Carl's studio. The track listing for the demo is as follows:

01. Darkest Days
02. Path of the Dagger
03. Death Machine
04. Dead in Winter

CANCER announced their split on March 1 "due to the lack of comitment to the band from John Walker [guitar, vocals]."

CANCER last year released a "comeback" studio album, entitled "Spirit In Flames", on the Copro label. The group's first full-length studio album (fifth overall) since 1995's "Black Faith" was recorded over a three-week period at Philia studios in Henley on Thames, England. An EP, entitled "Corporation$", preceded the "Spirit In Flames" CD and was also released through Copro. Included on the effort was the group's cover version of the CELTIC FROST classic "Dethroned Emperor".

CANCER's most recent lineup included Stokes, Walker, bassist Adam Richardson, and guitarist Dave Leitch (PULVERISED). Leitch replaced Rob Engvikson in 2004 after Rob left the group to focus on his long-running ASATRU project (which has since been renamed DANELAW).
