Norwegian death metallers THE SICKENING have parted ways with vocalist Sigve Stjernestøv. The group states, "We wish to thank Sigve for all the years he has been part of us and all that he has done for this band."THE SICKENING has yet to announce a replacement singer. Fan-filmed video footage of THE SICKENING performing a new song, "Suffer For My Pleasure", at this year's edition of the Death Feast Open Air festival, which was held June 10-12, 2010 in Hünxe, Germany, can be viewed below. THE SICKENING's debut album, "Death Devastation Decay", was released late last year via Xtreem Music. The CD, which was mastered in Sweden by acclaimed producer and multi-instrumentalist Dan Swäno, contains "11 songs of relentless and brutal-as-fuck death metal, including a cover of CANNIBAL CORPSE's 'Hammer Smashed Face' in a way more brutal and bizarre style," according to a press release. THE SICKENING came to life in 2003 as a side-project of Markspist (SLAGMARK) and Beist (SLAGMARK, ex-BLOOD RED THRONE). In the spring of 2007, Stjernestøv joined the band on vocals, and during the summer of 2008, Neeraj (ex-SLAGMARK) was added as the band's bassist. In September 2007, THE SICKENING recorded its first demo, "Soiled Rotten". For more information, visit www.myspace.com/thesickeningdeathmetal.
