THE SICKENING, the new Norwegian death metal band featuring former members of SLAGMARK and BLOOD RED THRONE, has released a five-song demo. Four of the tracks can be found on the group's MySpace page at this location.According to THE SICKENING's official bio, the band "came to life in 2003 first as a side-project of Markspist (SLAGMARK) and Beist (SLAGMARK, ex-BLOOD RED THRONE). Eventually, more time and dedication was spent on this project, making it a full-time band. In early 2007 Stjernestøv joined the ranks with his killer voices making this a triangle of death. And during summer '07 Neeraj (ex-SLAGMARK) was added as the band's bassist." THE SICKENING has scheduled a concert on November 10 at Fru Lundgren in Trondheim, Norway. Also slated to appear is BLOOD TSUNAMI, the thrash metal band featuring drummer Faust (EMPEROR, ABORYM, SCUM).
