CEMETARY 1213, the Swedish band led by former SUNDOWN mainman Mathias Lodmalm, will be releasing their “farewell” online EP titled 1213 Eternal later this year. It will apparently be available as a free download towards the end of November and will wrap up CEMETARY's 10+ “years of service in the name of tragedy”, according to Lodmalm. The next project for Lodmalm will be SP3(TRA, an electronic act that reportedly&nbsp features no guitars, no live drums, no growling death metal vocals. Soon to record its debut CD, Digital Neon, SP3(TRA's material has reportedly “passed thru a 3rd demo stage and has evolved about 1000% and is sounding slicker &amp sweeter than ever.” According to Mathias, “I've decided to go onto new things in music doing stuff I never thought I would do before. It's looking to be the ride of my life and for the first time since I shipped out all those Incarnation of Morbidity demos (anyone remember ??). I've got butterflies in my stomach. For those who want to stay behind I say thanks for your 10 years of support , much love &amp good things in general to you all. For those who are in for the new ride - strap your belts on - the future is go!!'
