Guitarist Colin Davis of the Californian brutal death metallers VILE has issued the following update on the band's current activities:"VILE is in the final stages of mixing 'The New Age of Chaos' and will be finished within three weeks. Unfortunately, the release will not be available untill September but it will be worth the wait! Fans of VILE will not be disappointed! I think it's got something in it for everyone. There are some insanely fast parts and some really slow stuff. There's mid-paced stuff and theres a lot of catchy hooks and grooves.The vocals are gigantic and soaring. It's memorable music that still kicks major ass and is true to the best American death metal. But it is new. I really think the music has a newness to it. I have been really influenced by the newest wave of black metal bands and even the Bay Area sound and you can hear them in this album. I don't think there is any way anyone will ever be able to say we sound like CANNIBAL CORPSE anymore!! "Another thing that is new for us is that there is audible bass in this music now. Hearable and musical sounding bass guitar. Jack Gibson [EXODUS] has been a friend of mine for many years. But he has mostly been into thrash-oriented music. He and I always respected each other but just never had the chance to work together. Now circumstances have allowed this union and the music is all the better for it. We will also release one song from the album as an MP3 sampler but it is not known which one will be used at this time. It should be available here in a few weeks. "With respect to touring, there are plans in the works. We will definately be supporting DEEDS OF FLESH on the N. American Bloodletting 5 tour tentatively scheduled for October/November 2005. There are also plans for a European tour that will either take place immediately after that or in early 2006. One thing is for sure and that is that VILE will not be limited to the occasional tour anymore. At least two full tours per year will be the norm. Lineup changes are necessary to facilitate this but it will be the best thing for the band in the long run. There is a new line-up being formed now and I will update you when it is confirmed. Reno Kiillerich of PANZERCHRIST/EXMORTEM will be the touring drummer again though."
