Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based band VENGEFUL has issued the following update:
"After what seemed to us like ages, we are now back with some new material. Our new EP, 'Tempted By Nightmares', features two songs from our upcoming second album ('Detention', 'Nightmare') while 'Tempted' and 'Sentenced' are re-recordings from the 'Karma' album. 'Silence' is from our 'Tragedy Lies Ahead' demo.
"We intentionally wanted to save the last three for bonus tracks, but in this day and age... what's the point of having bonus tracks if they're downloaded with the album. That is also why we've only printed 100 copies of this EP, mostly to shop for a label.
"The drums were recorded by Chris Donaldson (CRYPTOPSY, MYTHOSIS) during the sessions for our sophomore release and they feature 'real drumming' with Etienne Gallo (NEGATIVA, AUGURY) behind the kit. The artwork is once again from our usual visual artist Martin Lacroix (HUMANOID, AUGURY).
"As 2008 was one of the strongest years in extreme metal since 1995, we just couldn't pass on the opportunity to release something. We believe fans of brutality will dig this stuff. If you do, keep in mind that this is just a taste of what's to come in 2009."
VENGEFUL last year posted the video for the song "Sentenced". Regarding the clip, the group previously said, "It's violent yet not gory. Artsy yet very death metal. Some of the first images [we've] seen remind [us] of 'No Love Lost' (CARCASS)."
Watch the "Sentenced" video below.
"Sentenced" comes off VENGEFUL's debut album, "Karma", which was released in 2007 via Disconcert Music.
According to a press release, VENGEFUL "plays death metal that is fuelled by pure hatred and deep anger, accompanied by a firm sense of song structure and dynamic. . . Their music shows influences from pioneers such as GORGUTS, IMMOLATION, NILE and CRYPTOPSY."
