Swedish Brutal Death metal outfit Visceral Bleeding have issued the following band update, telling about the departure of only original member Peter Persson, his replacement, a new album and the search for a lead guitarist (Martin Bermheden left last year to play for The Berzerker). Here's the full message:

"It's been way too long since we made any updates on what's happening in the Visceral Bleeding camp, we apologise for this, we know a lot of you've been wondering about what's going on.

First off, a message from Peter: "I have decided to leave Visceral Bleeding to pursue and focus on other challenges in life. There is not really that much to say about it, Visceral Bleeding took up all of our time for a lot years (10 fucking years to be exact) and we got to do some amazing tours and shows and meet great people all over Europe. But now it's time for me to focus on family and other personal stuff. Absolutely no hard feelings involved in this decision, I just feel I have other priorities in life and don't want to be a burden to the band.

I don't want to exclude any band, person or zine but I do want to mention bands that we really had some extra fun with and that's Prostitute Disfigurement, Psycroptic (or Psuckonmycockdick if you will), Spawn Of Possession, Deicide, Skinless and everyone at Massive Music booking! You guys really fucking rock! I'm glad I got to hang out with ya'll and get to know all you crazy drunks and I wish all of you the best of luck in the future. Same goes out to Ruud Lemmen at Neurotic Records, thanks for all the good times and for everything you have done for Visceral Bleeding! I'm glad I got to know you and Joel and the drunken twins. Chris at Retribute Records who was the one who gave us our first break and gave us the opportunity to release Remnants of Deprivation and thereby making everything else that we have done possible. Mankan at Pama studio and Robban at FlatPig studio who both pushed us to do our very best in the studio.

Most importantly, I wanna thank the rest of the guys in Visceral Bleeding for all the good times on and off the stage. I'm sure Tobbe, Pedro and Body will find new members to spread the Visceral Bleeding mayhem with. I know for a fact that Tobbe already has a couple of songs and a bunch of riffs in the works so keep your eyes and ears open! Ripping the disgusting vile flesh... Peter"

We're all very sad to see Peter go, things will definately not be the same without him in the band. We wish him the best of luck in the future and will remain close friends as he will always be involved in this band one way or another.

We have already found ourselves a replacement for Peter though. Benny Bats from Prostitute Disfigurement will take his place and we're all very excited about this. We've known Benny since we did our first tour together as opening acts for Deicide back in 2005. Us and all the guys in Prostitute Disfigurement hit it off right away and we've been close friends ever since. We know that Benny will fit this band perfectly and it's gonna be really exciting to start working on the new stuff together.

While the writing for the new album continues so does our search for a lead guitarist. We've tried out a couple of guys for the spot already but for various reasons it hasn't worked out. Since Benny lives in The Netherlands we would really need the other guitarist to live nearby Malmö so we can rehearse on a regular basis. So if you think you have what it takes or maybe know someone that would, please don't hesitate to contact us!"

Well I hope the new Visceral Bleeding stuff is still Visceral Bleeding then.
I love this band. I only saw them once with Deicide and Prostitute Disfigurement and, well, I didn't really know any of the three bands that well back then - but I loved it anyway.
