ASSAILANT Splits With Record Label

ASSAILANT, the Umeå, Sweden-based band featuring guitarist Oscar Norberg ("little brother" of Emil of PERSUADER/SAVAGE CIRCUS fame and Nils Norberg of NOCTURNAL RITES), has split with Dockyard 1, the label that issued the group's first two albums — "Wicked Dream" (2008) and "Nemesis Within" (2006).

Commented the band: "We, ASSAILANT, have decided to leave Dockyard 1 just because we feel that we would benefit from either looking for a new label or starting anew. Right now we will continue working on our third album and see what the future holds."

The first three songs from ASSAILANT's forthcoming third album — "My Hate Remains", "Shades Of Grey" and "The End" — will be posted on the group's MySpace page on Sunday, January 3.

ASSAILANT's video for the song "A Day Tomorrow" can be viewed below. The clip was directed by Owe Lingvall of Village Road Film.

"A Day Tomorrow" comes off the group's sophomore album, "Wicked Dream", which was released in March 2008. According to a press release, the CD "is not only more mature than its predecessor but it shows a band that has clearly found its own path in metal, very melodic yet really hard, sprinkled with influences of rock, death metal and thrash."
