CANCER To Enter Studio This Weekend

Reformed U.K. death metallers CANCER will enter Philia studios in Henley on Thames, England on March 20 to begin recording their new album, entitled "Spirit In Flames". The group's first full-length studio album (fifth overall) since "Black Faith" in 1995 is tentatively scheduled for a June release via Copro Records.

According to a posting on the group's web site, "Spirit In Flames" will be "a very heavy album, and the darkest they have done thus far." Commented drummer Carl Stokes: "We are looking forward to making people's trousers flap."

A launch party for the CD will take place at the London Deathfest on June 18, with a full European tour to follow.

CANCER released an EP, "Corporation$", last May through Copro. Included on the effort was the group's cover version of the CELTIC FROST classic "Dethroned Emperor".

CANCER's current lineup includes Stokes, vocalist/guitarist John Walker, bassist Adam Richardson, and guitarist Dave Leitch (PULVERISED). Leitch replaced Rob Engvikson last summer after Rob left the group to focus on his long-running ASATRU project (which has since been renamed DANELAW).
