Reunited Dutch metallers GOREFEST have issued the following statement:
"Due to severe problems at the side of German agency Bruchstein Records, we have been forced to cancel our entire European tour. We are extremely disappointed with the way things have been dealt with, and as such have lost all faith in the whole operation. Rest assured we're working very hard to try and salvage as much from this wreckage as possible, and hope to do most of these shows properly at a later time. Our sincere apologies to everyone who has been waiting for so long to see us, and now have to wait even longer. We'd also like to apologize to MASTER, LUNAFIELD, RESSURECTURIS, and KRAGENS. Just like you guys, we were all geared up and ready to go. Decisions like these are not easily made but as much as we wanted to do this, things have been turning rapidly into a farce. As we refuse to be toyed with, there really was no other choice. We hope we can rely on everyone's patience, so we can lay out some frightfully heavy metal for ya as soon as we get things back on track!"
GOREFEST's latest CD, "La Muerte", was released in Europe in October via Nuclear Blast Records. The album was recorded at Excess studio in Rotterdam, Holland with engineer Hans Pieters. Mixing duties were handled in August by Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, ABORTED, DISBELIEF, BORN FROM PAIN) at Antfarm studio in Denmark. A video for the album's opening track, "For the Masses", was shot with director Maurice Swinkels of LowLife Media (EXODUS, ABORTED, PRIMAL FEAR). Watch it online at NuclearBlast.de (Real Media).
GOREFEST issued several CDs through the Nuclear Blast label in the early 1990s before switching to SPV for their last album, 1998's "Chapter 13".
