Songtitles set to appear on the 11-track effort include "Crawl", "For God?", "Edges" and "Lost In Time". A March 14, 2005 release via Nuclear Blast Records is expected.
DISBELIEF will be teaming up with SIX FEET UNDER, NILE, DARK FUNERAL, DYING FETUS and CATARACT for the No Mercy Festivals 2005 European tour beginning in early March. DISBELIEF will also take part in the Metal Meeting in Speyer/Halle 101 on April 23. Other groups scheduled to appear include GRAVE, DEW-SCENTED, MY DARKEST HATE und DESTINATION'S CALLING.
DISBELIEF's fifth album, "Spreading The Rage", was released in North America in March through Nuclear Blast Records USA via a licensing deal with the band's previous label, Massacre Records.
