Vocalist Per Boder (GOD MACABRE, MACABRE END) has joined the Swedish death metal unit MORDBRAND. An EP entitled "Crowning Of The Apocalypse" will be released as a seven-inch single in early 2011.

MORDBRAND guitarist Björn Larsson, who is also a member of THE LAW and KARENSDAG, commented: "To me, GOD MACABRE released a true classic record ('The Winterlong') in 1993 and Per has a very distinct and powerful growl.

"When I approached Per about joining our ranks, he was a bit reluctant since he hadn't sung since GOD MACABRE split up in 1993 or so. But he proved himself to be as vital as in the death metal glory days.

"The new stuff sounds exactly how we hoped it would sound. Deadly, catchy and raw!

"We are very excited about this alliance!"

"Crowning Of The Apocalypse" will consist of three new tracks, and a reworked version of "Big Trouble In Little Chinese Graveyard" (now entitled "Graveyard Re-Visited") with the new vocalist. The track will differ a lot from the old version (which can be found on the split 12inch with EVOKE, available on Me Saco Un Ojo Records).
