Former CANCER Frontman Returns With LIQUID GRAVEYARD

Former CANCER frontman John Walker has returned with his new European band called LIQUID GRAVEYARD.

According to a press release, LIQUID GRAVEYARD "has a more developed sound than CANCER yet the songs are entirely composed by John Walker as most of the music in CANCER. It is a step forward since CANCER released the 'Black Faith' and 'Spirit in Flames' albums. To those who love CANCER, you're certainly gonna love LIQUID GRAVEYARD!!"

LIQUID GRAVEYARD, whose members are English, Irish and Spanish ("it's meant to be an international band with an European heavy metal sound," says the press release), will record its first CD in 2008. A record deal is currently being sought.

CANCER announced its split on March 1, 2006 "due to the lack of comitment to the band from John Walker [guitar, vocals]."

CANCER in 2005 released a "comeback" studio album, entitled "Spirit in Flames", on the Copro label. The group's first full-length studio album (fifth overall) since 1995's "Black Faith" was recorded over a three-week period at Philia studios in Henley on Thames, England. An EP, entitled "Corporation$", preceded the "Spirit in Flames" CD and was also released through Copro. Included on the effort was the group's cover version of the CELTIC FROST classic "Dethroned Emperor".

CANCER's most recent lineup included Carl Stokes (drums), Walker, bassist Adam Richardson, and guitarist Dave Leitch (PULVERISED). Leitch replaced Rob Engvikson in 2004 after Rob left the group to focus on his long-running ASATRU project (which has since been renamed DANELAW).
