Danish extreme metallers KONKHRA recently finished re-recording their long-awaited new album, "Nothing Is Sacred", after encountering technical difficulties which forced them to scrap some of the previously completed early tracks. A song from the CD, entitled "Religion is a Whore", has been posted on the group's MySpace page. Also available at the same location is the previously released cut "Hail to the King". KONKHRA vocalist/guitarist Anders Lundemark has since issued the following update:"OK, we got the mix! But, we have decided to record a little more for the record. Two new tracks are being recorded this weekend: 'Writhe in Flesh' and 'Doctrines of Death'. It seems like this record is turning out to be almost conceptual, and the general topic is a blatant attack on all kinds of religion. Seriously, when over half the population in the western hemisphere chooses a 1500-2000-year-old scripture and turns their collective back on scientific facts, it seems that it hasn't been done enough. Obviously though, this attack of ours ain't anchored in some Satanic antichristian adolescent haze, but an attack on everything that is replacing intelligent thought with any kind of religious dogma. We know that you can't outlaw stupidity, but at least we can try our own little wake-up call. The two new tracks are just what the record misses, we think. One is a full-on blast attack a little in the vein of 'Hail to the King'. The other is a mid-tempo, old-school death metal hymn. We should have everything ready by the first of October." KONKHRA released its latest CD, "Reality Check", in May 2003 through Code666 Records. The album was recorded at guitarist/vocalist Anders Lundemark's own Starstruck Studio and was the group's first since their split with longtime label Diehard Music.
