Desultory - Reform, Working On New Album

Pulverised Records press release:

It is with our immense pleasure to announce that we had dug up an old Swedish Death Metal gem from the late 80's and bring you the legendary Desultory. With three ridiculously under-rated albums ("Into Eternity", "Bitterness" and "Swallow The Snake" respectively) under Metal Blade Records, the band was put to sleep indefinitely and was conjured back to life only recently. We are very eager to see what form of Death Metal disaster awaits us with this classic resurrection.

The band comments: "We are very pleased to sign with Pulverised Records [for a two-album deal, Ed.] as they have a very good reputation here in Sweden. Professional guys and fans of the Death Metal scene, just as it should be. After our 3rd album in 1996, we put Desultory to sleep and went on to explore other musical directions. But now, 13 years later, we are back again, we felt the need to create some new Death Metal and that it was time for Desultory to be reborn. The new material for the forthcoming record will be a touch of the old Desultory but mixed up with new influences. It will be hard, brutal and melodic.

Two lineup changes: Håkan Morberg is now playing lead guitar (before he was playing bass) and Jojje Bohlin is handling the bass. Still Klas Morberg on vox and guitar and Thomas Johnson smashing the drums.

We´re really looking forward to see you on tour or on a festival somewhere!"

Yeah, a second reunion for today. That's sweet. It's quite rare to have two news bulletins about different bands reuniting in the same day, let alone them being twice in a row.
