IMPALED have pushed back the release date of their upcoming EP, "Medical Waste", to early February via Necropolis Records in the U.S. and Century Media Records in Europe. "The delay may be fortuitous, though, as IMPALED have completed their first music video!," according to the band's official web site. "Directed by Sean 'Bloodbath' McGrath himself, the video for 'Operating Theatre' may or may not be included as a CD-ROM track, depending on the labels' interest in encoding the data." In other news, IMPALED are planning a 12-date European tour with ABORTED beginning with the Fuck The Commerce Festival in May. Exact dates and venues will be announced soon. Finally, IMPALED has all-new material nearing completion for their split album with HAEMORRHAGE. Coming in early 2003 from Razorback Records, this first-ever split concept album is titled "Dementia Rex" and promises to be a slab of grind from two leaders in horror and gore.
