INSIDIOUS DISEASE (formerly INSIDIOUS), the international metal project featuring members of DIMMU BORGIR, NAPALM DEATH, OLD MAN'S CHILD and MORGOTH, has posted a rough-mix version of the song "Boundless" on the band's MySpace page. The track comes off the group's long-awaited debut album, which is tentatively due later in the year via an as-yet-undetermined record label.
INSIDIOUS DISEASE recorded 12 songs for its debut CD at a studio in Norway with producer Terje Andersen (a.k.a. Cyrus) of SUSPERIA.
NECROPHAGIA frontman Frank "Killjoy" Pucci has co-written and contributed guest vocals to a track called "Rituals of Bloodshed" which is included on the album. Another songtitle set to appear on the CD is "Conceived through Hate".

DIMMU BORGIR guitarist Silenoz last year spoke to U.K.'s Terrorizer magazine about INSIDIOUS DISEASE. A couple of excerpts from the question-and-answer session follow below.
Terrorizer: How would you describe the INSIDIOUS DISEASE material?
Silenoz: "I'd say it's a good variation; a good mix of groovy, downtuned stuff, but it doesn't sound too modern, it's more back-to-basics. It's not really technical by any means, like some people might expect, it's more heavy riffing, attitude. It's hard to explain, but it's safe to say that the word 'extreme' would cover most of it. We have fast stuff, of course, but we also have slow stuff."
Terrorizer: Did you have any specific influences in mind?
Silenoz: Not anything specific, but me and most of the guys in the band, we grew up with the '80s extreme stuff and I think that shines through the music but I wouldn't say that we take any direct influence, it's more that feel of what was going on in that time in the late '80s. That quick and clean production on everything loses its charm so we tried to make it sound as analogue as humanly possible to digital recording."
