REV 16:8: Another Sample Posted Online

REV 16:8, the Swedish metal band formerly known as BLOODSHED, has posted a sample of a new song, "Born From The Womb Of Chaos", on the group's MySpace page. The track comes off REV 16:8's full-length debut, "Grand Tidal Rave", which will be released on June 28 via Temple Of Darkness Records.

REV 16:8 recently parted ways with vocalist Themgoroth (ex-DARK FUNERAL, INFERNAL) "due to personal reasons." Handling the vocals on the CD and for the band going forward is guitarist Talon.

Regarding its reasons for changing the band's name, REV 16:8 previously stated, "The change is a natural step and is based on several reasons. The return of the original guitarist 'Nefastus' gave the band the edge it had lost. With new strength and new killer material, it's obvious that there's noone out there that could ever do his job better. Since the arrival of 'Pata,' the drumming has given the creative process the freedom it needs, without boundaries. It has and is continuously contributing to raising the music to a new level. The musical skills and the songwriting of guitarist 'Talon' challenges the mainstream and will always push the envelope in the band's material evolvement. The visual artist and lyrical mastermind 'Ill' with his basslines makes the band grow several steps further. To sum it up, the current lineup of musicians is the best this band has ever seen.

"The name 'BLOODSHED' has been and is being used by several groups. Continuing the use of the old name wouldn't give the band any justice. It would merely reflect an affiliation to the general mediocracy. REV 16:8 stands above the masses, it's something unique that isn't to be associated with the rest of the sheep. The new moniker marks the beginning of a new era in the band's history, and we gaze upon the future with great expectation."
