NAPALM DEATH bassist Shane Embury has posted the following update via the group's official web site:"We started rehearsing yesterday for the upcoming shows in Finland and the 1st part of the European tour, and apart from a rusty start everything is going good. Gonna be few surprises, I think, as we have been jamming some songs that we haven't played for a long time — some stuff from the 'Utopia Banished' period which is working nicely in with the new songs it almost seems to work better now than in the past for some reason. "It's a little too early to tell the direction of the set but I think we may be concentrating on the first four albums a lot and the last two — which means we may miss out the mid nineties stuff entirely — but we will see as things always change. "I guess we feel that with the DVD out now we can experiment with the set more as we have documented our recent set the best way we could — so anyway time for some surprises. "On another note it looks like I will be braving the Scandinavian cold in between our European dates and our English ones, as I have been asked to record a track with the NASUM guys on their forthcoming album which I am really looking forward to as it's a chance to meet up with old friends and have a good time doing it."
