Spanish "doom thrashers" RHINO have been forced to changed their name, which they had been using since 2004, to HORN OF THE RHINO for "legal" reasons. The band says, "Nothing has changed but the name (and not at all) 'cause we carry on with our plans of releasing our third LP, 'Weight Of Coronation', in July 2010 through Doomentia Records and declaring, once more time, that this is our most brutal and heavy album, literally speaking."
"Weight Of Coronation" was recorded in March at Koba studios in Bilbao with producer Xanpe and will once again feature artwork by renowed artist Rafa Garrés, who previously worked with the band on its second album, "Dead Throne Monarch".
