THE BERZERKER Launching Record Label

Vocalist Luke Kenny of the Australian grind deviants THE BERZERKER has issued the following update:

"I'm very excited to tell you that we will be launching our brand new record label Berzerker Industries within the next few months. The first release will be our new studio album. (I can't fucking wait!) The only way you'll be able to get hold of this album is by direct mail order via MySpace and our website. This will not be in stores. Also we will be holding a remix competition with the winner getting their remixed BERZERKER version on our new CD. There will also be remixes from some of the biggest names in the gabba/speedcore scene. ROOAAGGGGHH!! Please enjoy this sneak peek track [see below] set to some New Zealand madness. For UK fans, we have been confirmed on the Ghostfest festival in Leeds on June 29th. We will be adding more UK dates added shortly. Once again, thanks for your support over all these years."

THE BERZERKER has so far released four full-length albums: "The Berzerker" (2000), "Dissimulate" (2002), "World of Lies" (2005) and "Animosity" (2007), all through Earache Records. During the early part of their career as a live act, band members were identified only as The Vocalist, The Guitarist, The Bassist and The Drummer, distinguishable on stage only by the intricate monster masks they wore. However, the group has since abandoned this concept.

A DVD documentary, "The Principles and Practices of The Berzerker" (2004), includes several hours of live concert footage, as well as the first public images of the band members without their monster masks.

Most of the band's music videos have been banned from broadcast for reasons such as the possible epileptic fit-inducing imagery contained in the video "Forever", and the horrific imagery of "Reality". The latter features graphic images of cadavers and body parts, along with appearances from the band themselves.
