KATATONIA PARTS WAY WITH GUITARIST, BRUCE SOORD STEPS IN FOR ‘UNPLUGGED & REWORKED’ TOUR

It has been some time coming but guitarist Per ‘Sodomizer’ Eriksson and Katatonia have now mutually agreed to part ways. Per joined the band in 2010 as a live session player and after some substantial touring quickly became a steady fixture being heavily involved in the recording of Katatonia’s 2012 critically acclaimed studio album ‘Dead End Kings’.

A difference in views on the band’s current operative as well as last year’s decision from Per to permanently live in Barcelona have made his involvement in the band too problematic, both for him and for the remaining band members. They part ways as good friends and on a related note, his position within the death metal “super-group” Bloodbath remains unchanged and he will soon join his fellow band members in the studio to record their 4th album to be released on Peaceville records this fall.

Autopsy

New album ‘Tourniquets, Hacksaws & Graves’ coming this April

The US death metal legends have completed work on their seventh studio album, to be titled ‘Tourniquets, Hacksaws & Graves’ & set to be unleashed April 21st (April 29th in the US) on Peaceville Records.

‘Tourniquets, Hacksaws & Graves’ was recorded at Fantasy Studios with producer Adam Munoz, & sees a continuation of Autopsy’s pursuit of the ultimate in metallic horror & extremity, featuring the longstanding combo of Eric Cutler and Danny Coralles on guitars, Joe Trevisano on bass and Chris Reifert on drums/vocals. From all-out death metal savagery to crawling, doom-filled sludgery, ‘Tourniquets, Hacksaws & Graves’ further pushes the limits of taste and brutality with this latest relentless onslaught of terror from beyond the grave.
