Swedish thrashers CARNAL FORGE have issued a statement defending themselves against accusations that they have attacked CHILDREN OF BODOM's "originality" by questioning C.O.B.'s plans to use almost exactly the same title ("Are You Dead Yet?") for their upcoming CD as that of CARNAL FORGE's latest effort, 2004's "Aren't You Dead Yet?" Writing to their official web site, CARNAL FORGE said, "First of all, we would like to say that, where the fuck can you find that CARNAL FORGE has made any comment of CHILDREN OF BODOM being anything?
"All of you that want to be so original should check your facts before you make any comments at all.
"We have never seen this much people arguing about something this ridiculous.
"CHILDREN OF BODOM can name their albums whatever they want, we don't have time to even care. So to kill this discussion that CARNAL FORGE had said anything else than what's posted on our site …we say, check your facts."
CARNAL FORGE are currently working on the material for the follow-up to "Aren't You Dead Yet?", tentatively due in early 2006 via Century Media Records. The upcoming CD will be the group's first with singer Jens C. Mortensen (LEECH, REVOLVER, SLAPDASH),who replaced Jonas Kjellgren last year.
