Swedish death metallers NECROPHOBIC have posted the following stuio update on their official web site:
"Ain't this a fine day (Friday the 13th) to start recording some evil vocals? The day in honour, we had a very special guest in the studio. Old guitar player Martin Halfdan came by, with a case of beer, to say hello. He also helped us out a bit with some proof-reading of our lyrics and so on.
"If 'Bloodhymns' was an explosive hard riffing album, this new one, 'Hrimthursum', will be a much more cold and epic one. This time we will take some extra time with the vocals. Try out a few more voices, to put some extra dark and evil feeling to the album. Vocals is the only thing remaining and Tobias will sing every other day now until it's time for mixdown."

As previously reported, NECROPHOBIC have inked a deal with Regain Records for the release of their fifth album, "Hrimthursum". The follow-up to 2002's "Bloodhymns" is being recorded at the Dark Voodoo Studio with engineers Anders Bentell and Fredrik Folkare (guitarist and producer of UNLEASHED) and is tentatively due later in the year.
"Hrimthursum" (a word taken from the old Norse mythology which means "The Frost Giants") will feature the following track listing (in no particular order):
01. Slaughter of Baby Jesus
02. Branded by Light, Enlightened by Darkness
03. Eternal Winter
04. The Crossing
05. I Strike with Wrath
07. Sitra Ahra
08. Bitter Cold Blizzard
