HEAVEN SHALL BURN Drummer Says He Is Not Playing On New CARCASS Studio Album

German death metal and hardcore fusionists HEAVEN SHALL BURN have shot down as false rumors that their drummer, Matthias Voigt (pictured below), is playing on the upcoming comeback album from reactivated British extreme metal legends CARCASS.

In a statement posted on the HEAVEN SHALL BURN Facebook page, the band writes: "BLABBERMOUTH.NET is really cool, but sometimes rumors are just rumors. Matthias is 100% NOT playing for CARCASS! Everybody in HEAVEN SHALL BURN maintains the status as devoted CARCASS fan and does not even dare to dream of being involved with this legend!"

As reported by BLABBERMOUTH.NET yesterday (Thursday, November 29), CARCASS is putting the finishing touches on its first studio album in 17 years with acclaimed producer Colin Richardson (FEAR FACTORY, MACHINE HEAD, NAPALM DEATH, SLIPKNOT, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE). The band has yet to secure a label home for the effort, which is expected in early 2013.

Guitarist Michael Amott and drummer Daniel Erlandsson, who have been touring with CARCASS since the band's reunion was announced in 2007, are no longer involved with the group due to scheduling conflicts with their main band, ARCH ENEMY.

CARCASS is in the process of booking a number of live shows for 2013, including appearances at next year's Maryland Deathfest and Chile's Metal Fest.
