Guitarist Matt Olivo of the reunited death metal/grindcore pioneers REPULSION has issued the following update on the band's current activities:
"Scott Carlson [bass, vocals] has recorded vocals for Nicke Andersson's [ex-ENTOMBED, currently in THE HELLACOPTERS] DEATH BREATH project. This album will be fucking badass for all of you old schoolers out there....heavy, fucking raw ass death metal in the style of DEATH, REPULSION, BATHORY, VENOM, etc. Matt Olivo provided record engineering for Scott's vocal takes. Both Scott and I are very proud to be a part of this project and look forward to its success.
"New kids CRETIN have an album recently released on Relapse Records. This slab is indeed the sickest, rawest, fastest shit to hit human ears since 'Horrified'. Pick it up or die! The group features Col Jones (EXHUMED, REPULSION),Matthew Widener and Dan Martinez.
"Matt Harvey's side project DEKAPITATOR has finished recording a new album. They're current shopping it around for a fall release. Let's keep our swords crossed for these true metal brothers!
"DEJECTA's recording of CELTIC FROST's 'Visions of Mortality' is featured on CF's webpage tribute page.
"On the DVD front we have made progress with our legal issues and continue to push to release this thing [as soon as possible]!"
REPULSION's upcoming DVD, "Necrothology: Vomitus Visions from the Vault", will feature cover artwork by Stefan Thanneu.
