INFERNAL, the project led by Swedish guitarist David Parland (NECROPHOBIC, DARK FUNERAL), has announced the addition of Norwegian drummer Carl (RECOVERY INJECTION, ASTAROTH) to the group's ranks. According to Parland, Carl will "do the job for the next couple of tracks. Whether this is a session job only, or longtime thing, is up for time to tell." He added, "We believe that [Carl] can do the job as good as our previous drummer."

The new lineup of INFERNAL will start work on new material "in about a month."

In other news, INFERNAL has posted a "very, very rough version" of the "Killing Christ" track which was previously available only as a 45-second snippet. Parland says, "It is both untight and not fully professionally performed, but this is what is the cool thing with the Net — you can post stuff that might not be up to album standards that you never ever would hear [if it wasn't for] the Internet. However, of course, this track will be recorded 100 % professionally for both the next demo and the full-length album, coming in 2010."

Check out the song at the band's MySpace page.

Joining Parland and Carl in the new INFERNAL lineup is guitarist Martin Halfdan (ex-NECROPHOBIC).

Regarding the decision to use the INFERNAL name for the new project (INFERNAL's previous lineup split up in 2003), David previously said, "When we started up again, we initially wanted to call the band something totally different, but we never came up with anything good enough, and whenever we did, we found out that these names already were taken. . . The concept still remains 100% Satanic; we see no reason to not call ourselves something less good or half-assed, just because the sound mainly is no longer the hyper-blast stuff we used to do in our earlier bands. This new INFERNAL is still purely Satanic, but generally has a more accessible sound, more melodic, but still brutal, and with some blast parts as well. We generally want to people to think of this as new band, more or less a complete rebirth of a band that once was (and still is again). We don't want people to even compare it with the old stuff since it's in most ways not the same band."
