REV 16:8 To Team Up With NEFARIUM For Split EP

REV 16:8, the Swedish metal band formerly known as BLOODSHED, will team up with Italian black metal ensemble NEFARIUM to release a split EP entitled "The Unholy Communion" through Agonia Records. An early 2009 release is expected.

REV 16:8 will enter A.R.T. Studio in Stockholm on November 15 to begin recording its full-length debut for an early 2009 release via Temple Of Darkness Records.

REV 16:8 recently posted two new songs on its MySpace page. "Sole Crow's Carrier" and "In Wait" are the first two tracks to feature the group's new vocalist Themgoroth (ex-DARK FUNERAL, INFERNAL).

Regarding its reasons for changing the band's name, REV 16:8 previously stated, "The change is a natural step and is based on several reasons. The return of the original guitarist 'Nefastus' gave the band the edge it had lost. With new strength and new killer material, it's obvious that there's noone out there that could ever do his job better. Since the arrival of 'Pata,' the drumming has given the creative process the freedom it needs, without boundaries. It has and is continuously contributing to raising the music to a new level. The musical skills and the songwriting of guitarist 'Talon' challenges the mainstream and will always push the envelope in the band's material evolvement. The visual artist and lyrical mastermind 'Ill' with his basslines makes the band grow several steps further. To sum it up, the current lineup of musicians is the best this band has ever seen.

"The name 'BLOODSHED' has been and is being used by several groups. Continuing the use of the old name wouldn't give the band any justice. It would merely reflect an affiliation to the general mediocracy. REV 16:8 stands above the masses, it's something unique that isn't to be associated with the rest of the sheep. The new moniker marks the beginning of a new era in the band's history, and we gaze upon the future with great expectation."
