Swedish black/thrash metal band BESTIAL MOCKERY, who previously announced on its web site that the group was "going down into the grave" following the alleged passing of its bassist Devilpig, has issued the following update:
"After extensive nocturnal rites under the harvest fullmoon with the guidance of the Aghori Kharma men's of the east, those graveyard dwellers and in utter necromancy of the forbidden black art Devilpig's alcohol-soaked corpse have been resurrected
"Though his soul could not be called back from the seventh gate, he is now merely a shadow of his former self and will more look like a undead in live rituals.
"BESTIAL MOCKERY is back from beyond the grave! No rest for the wicked! Did you really think we would give you mercy? We are the spawns of the father of lies and now we are even more eager for the blood of the living. Feel our sepulchral wrath dismantle on the night of the dead and restless souls 1st of November.
"New demons, ritual cloths, black adorations vinyls with unpure signs carved in them, razor barbed wire decorated hymns and insignias of the dark mark that burns will then be given to the loyal servants and soon a new unholy pact will be sealed."
BESTIAL MOCKERY's latest album, "Gospel of the Insane", was released earlier in the year via Osmose Productions.
