NAPALM DEATH Bassist, CATHEDRAL Frontman To Form Grindcore Band

NAPALM DEATH bassist Shane Embury has confirmed plans to form a "grindcore" project with CATHEDRAL frontman (and ex-NAPALM DEATH member) Lee Dorrian.

"Me and Lee have been talking about doing something for ages but I think hopefully next year we will get something together," Embury said, "Hopefully Roy Mayorga, who was playing drums in SOULFLY, will drum and Mid [a.k.a. Robert Middleton] who is responsible for a lot of the NAPALM DEATH artwork will play guitar as he now plays in a band called BAIT and used to be the guitar player for DEVIATED INSTINCT, who of course go way back to the early NAPALM days."

With regards to Embury's much-anticipated "total punk thrash grind" project with ex-NAPALM DEATH drummer Mick Harris, former BRUTAL TRUTH singer Kevin Sharp and MELVINS/FANTOMAS guitarist Buzz Osborne, Embury said, "[the group's debut album] will be out early next year as we are just searching for a label to put it out. But it's done and ready to go. [We're] gonna be recording some songs for some split records early next year as well."
