THANATOS: New Promotional Recording Posted Online

Dutch death metal pioneers THANATOS have uploaded all three songs from their new 2008 promotional CD on their MySpace page. According to the group, "these three songs — 'They Feed On Fear', 'Destruction, Chaos. Creation' and 'Justified Genocide' — were mixed by Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY, BLOODBATH, HAIL OF BULLETS) and will hopefully bring the band a new record deal. In the last 12 months the band members have been very busy with their other bands (HAIL OF BULLETS, ASPHYX and MELECHESH) but now it's time to concentrate on THANATOS as well again."

THANATOS in 2006 suspended the recording sessions for "Justified Genocide" at Excess studios in Rotterdam, Holland after the group's record label at the time, Greece's Black Lotus Records, announced that it was closing its doors.

THANATOS's new album is scheduled to feature nine or 10 songs, including "The Devil's Triangle", "March of the Infidels", "Upwards Spritual Evolution" and "The Netherworld". The artwork will be handled by German artist Timo Wuerz.

THANATOS' fourth CD, "Undead. Unholy. Divine" (2004), was produced by Hans Pieters and the band at Excess and was mastered by Attie Bauw (JUDAS PRIEST, SCORPIONS, GOREFEST).
