SEPULTURA and OBITUARY have been confirmed for the Ilha do Ermal festival, set to take place August 28-30 in Vieira do Minho, Portugal. More acts will be announced soon."A-Lex" — SEPULTURA's first LP to be recorded without either of the founding Cavalera brothers (Max and Igor; on guitar/vocals and drums, respectively) — is available in three versions: in a deluxe digipak with an embossed cover, in a regular jewel case and on a vinyl gatefold LP. OBITUARY will release a new concert DVD, tentatively titled "Live Xecution In Bad Berka 2008", in June via Regain Records.

OBITUARY recently completed work on the band's new album for a tentative May/June release via Candlelight Records. Vocalist John Tardy stated, "It came out really sick and I cannot wait for you guys to hear it... it is heavy!!" (Thanks: Marcus Tameeris)
