Danish extreme metallers KONKHRA recently finished re-recording their long-awaited new album, "Nothing Is Sacred", after encountering technical difficulties which forced them to scrap some of the previously completed early tracks. Two songs from the CD — "Religion is a Whore" and "Hail to the King" — have been posted on the group's MySpace page.
KONKHRA vocalist/guitarist Anders Lundemark has issued the following update:
"'Doctrines of Death' is one of the extra new songs we decided to record. It's about three minutes of 240 bpm (beats per minute) blastbeat. Think 'Dominate' by MORBID ANGEL and you'll know what I mean. Mads is dominating these tempos for sure, and it's very refreshing and unbelievably fun to play KONKHRA songs in these tempos. The fastest we did in the past was about 220 bpm. We hope that fans of the fast new-school death metal will give our new shit a chance. We still do the chugga mid-tempos a lot too, but there are three-four songs that take a bow in the MORBID ANGEL, VADER, BEHEMOTH direction. Right now, we are tracking the bass. It's not too late, so we can finish the vocals too tonight, we hope. This week, we will wrap it all up..."
KONKHRA released its latest CD, "Reality Check", in May 2003 through Code666 Records. The album was recorded at guitarist/vocalist Anders Lundemark's own Starstruck Studio and was the group's first since their split with longtime label Diehard Music.
