Swedish thrashers CARNAL FORGE have parted ways with drummer Stefan Westerberg and have replaced him with Chris Barkensjö (CONSTRUCDEAD, ex-GRAVE).
Commented Stefan: "Thanks to all the fans, but now it's time for me to move on. I have joined a new band called HEADSTONE! We have also started STEEL ATTACK again with the original members and will do at least one reunion show soon. We will only play songs from the two first albums."
CARNAL FORGE returned to the studio in June 2009 to record the vocals for a new track called "Blood War" (formerly "Non Existence"). The song will appear on the band's next album, tentatively due later this year. An accompanying music video (produced and directed by guitarist Dino Medanhodzic) was filmed in October 2009.
"Blood War" was written, recorded and produced by CARNAL FORGE in the band's own studio in Sala, Sweden. The track was mixed by Medanhodzic.
CARNAL FORGE is:
Peter Tuthill - Vocals
Dino Medanhodzic - Lead Guitar
Petri Kuusisto - Lead Guitar
Lars Lindén - Bass
Chris Barkensjö - Drums
CARNAL FORGE's latest album, "Testify for My Victims", was released in the U.S. in May 2007 via Candlelight Records.
