RIBSPREADER, the Swedish "old-school death metal" band featuring guitarist/vocalist/bassist Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER, CARVE, HUMANITY DELETE), guitarist/bassist Andreas Carlsson (ANOTHER LIFE) and drummer/guitarist Dan Swanö (BLOODBATH, EDGE OF SANITY, NIGHTINGALE), have posted the following message on their web site:
"The next album is now completely written and will be recorded early September. No set title yet, check the site and you will be first to know. We've put together a bunch of new, yet retardedly old-school sounding songs, and without talking shit, they all blow our previous material to pieces. It's at all times both faster, slower, heavier, sicker and more eager to rip your flesh than anything we've done, and the brutality reeks from tracks like 'Not Dead But Buried', 'Maggots (Fucking Maggots)' and 'Worms Inside Your Coffin', just to name a few of them. The artwork is as freaky as the music and looks absolutely killer, totally in the same vein as the debut album cover. And for all you wining brutality freaks, we've also chosen to incorporate some double-bass drum work in the sound this time, just to be able to fuck you over a bit more thorough than last time..."
The follow-up to this year's "Bolted to the Cross" is tentatively due in early 2005 through Holland's Karmageddon Media.
