Dutch metallers GOREFEST have released the following statement:
"GOREFEST discover Internet porn, quit. OK, that's not entirely true, we knew about the porn all along. But, after two albums, both of which we're hugely proud of, and about a hundred shows, all of them memorable in their own way, the question that remained for us was: what's next? The answer can be short: nothing. 'La Muerte' and 'Rise To Ruin' are two albums with which we've expanded, and indeed completed our body of work to our full satisfaction. Barring one or two exceptions, all the shows we've done since we decided to reform sometime in 2004 have been tremendously enjoyable. So why quit? Pretty simple, really: Every ride comes to an end. This is ours."
Fan-filmed video footage of GOREFEST performing at the Way Of Darkness III Festival, which was held October 2-4, 2008 in Coburg, Germany, can be viewed below (clip uploaded by YouTube user "brophdefection").
GOREFEST's latest album, "Rise to Ruin", entered the Dutch chart at position No. 61 back in August 2007. Released in the U.S. on September 25, 2007 via Candlelight, the CD was mixed by Danish producer Tue Madsen at his Antfarm studios in Århus, Denmark.
GOREFEST issued several CDs through the Nuclear Blast label in the early 1990s before switching to SPV for their 1998 album, "Chapter 13".
