Neurotic Records has announced that Swedish death metal formation VISCERAL BLEEDING have extended their recording agreement with the label by two more full-length albums. In addition, the band have named Martin Pedersen as their official vocalist. Martin already proved himself on the U.K. headline tour in May as well as on the recent European tour with DEICIDE and fellow labelmates PROSTITUTE DISFIGUREMENT.

Commented guitarist Peter Persson: "It feels great to extend our collaboration with Neurotic Records and to be a part of its ever-growing roster of elite-extreme bands like SPAWN OF POSSESSION, PROSTITUTE DISFIGUREMENT, PSYCROPTIC and so on. The new album will prove our diversity and will perhaps even be perceived as quite different from 'Transcend Into Ferocity' and 'Remnants Of Deprivation'. Tobbe [Persson, drums] and me are working hard on the arrangements and we feel that this will be the strongest VISCERAL BLEEDING material to this date. After Dennis decided to quit the band and focus completely on SPAWN OF POSSESSION, we started searching for someone who was just as charasmatic as him and who could muster the role of being a suitable frontman for the band. Finally we found Martin Pedersen and after being on two tours and doing a bunch of festivals and smaller gigs with him we feel it's time to announce him as the official vocalist of VISCERAL BLEEDING. He gets along great with everyone in the band and we always have a kick-ass time together when we're on tours. We're really excited to see what Martin can bring up to the table when it comes to vocal arrangements and different type of vocals for the new album."

VISCERAL BLEEDING are expected to enter the studio in the summer to record the as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2004's "Transcend Into Ferocity", tentatively due before the end of the year.
