JOHANSSON & SPECKMANN - New album in September - First details revealed
True old school to the death!
The new and third full-length-album of the deadly mastermind-duo JOHANSSON & SPECKMANN has been baptized "Edge Of The Abyss" and will be released via Soulseller Records in September 2016. The cover artwork was created by Roberto Toderico.
MASTER’s Paul Speckmann comments: “Rogga and I are looking forward to sharing “Edge Of The Abyss” with the masses. You can be sure that this third installment of the Johansson-Speckmann series is by far the best in the series, so go out and buy this masterpiece, you won't be disappointed!”
His partner in crime, Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER, RIBSPREADER, REVOLTING and others), adds: “For the third time me and Paul have decided to write some awesomely ugly and heavy Death Metal for you all. If you liked the previous albums you will love this one, as its more of just everything you have come to know as Johansson & Speckmann. This time we are not only backed up by monster drummer Brynjar Helgetun but have also a lead guitarist in Kjetil Lynghaug, who delivers some sick solo work.”

CENTINEX - "Doomsday Rituals" - Album details and new song available
Swedish old-school death metallers CENTINEX are going to release a new album titled "Doomsday Rituals" on July 8th via Agonia Records. Along with the street date, the band has revealed the first new song, which is available for streaming at:
CENTINEX originated in 1990 as a riff-oriented part of the classic Swedish death metal movement and disbanded in 2005 after releasing eighth full-length albums. In 2014 they surprisingly resurfaced with a refreshed line-up of Martin Schulman (Demonical) on bass, Sverker Widgren (Demonical, Diabolical) on guitars, Alexander Högbom (October Tide, Spasmodic) on vocals and Kennet Englund (Interment, Centinex 1999-2003) on drums. Year 2014 also saw the release of their come-back record, "Redeeming Filth".
The band dosen't want the fans to be kept waiting another near-decade for a new album. Titled "Doomsday Rituals", the record is a natural follow-up to "Redeeming Filth". Martin Schulman (bass) commented: "Heavy riffing, deep brutal vocals, everything from slow via mid-tempo to faster stuff, a perfect mix of the early 90's Florida and Stockholm sound".
"Doomsday Rituals" was recorded at Wing Studios with Sverker Widgren (Centinex, Demonical, Diabolical) behind the knobs. The cover artwork was made by Bahrull Marta of Abomination Imagery.
