Italy's SOTHIS Becomes SAWTHIS

Italian thrash-death metallers SOTHIS have officially changed their name to SAWTHIS. The band says, "After 12 years, we have been forced to change moniker because of a homonymy with an American black metal band that has obtained the exclusive rights, although started using the moniker later.
It has been hard to accept, but we could do nothing."

SAWTHIS is continuing work on its sophomore album, "Egod", at Petemkin Studios with producer Paolo Ojetti (INFERNAL POETRY). 13 songs were written for the CD and 10 of them are being tracked for the final product.

Check out footage from the studio below.

The band's debut album, "Fusion", was released in April 2006 via Italy's Temple Of Noise Records.
