Drummer Tony Laureano (DIMMU BORGIR, ex-NILE, ANGELCORPSE) has posted following message on his official website:
"Alright, a quick heads up to let people what's going on with me in the next few months. Fair warning, some of this is going to sound cryptic right know, as I can't talk too much about a few things, but I will update on these in a bit.
"AURORA BOREALIS: It took longer than expected, but the new album is now done and is currently being shopped around. Hopefully it will be out early 2006.
"INSIDIOUS DISEASE: NAPALM DEATH's Shane Embury has taken the bass slot and we are now officially a four-piece. There will be some late November rehearsals where the music for the debut album will be finalized. We are hoping to record said album in the spring of 2006.
"Unnamed project one: Before I left Norway this past August, I recorded three tracks of savagely innovative black metal with members of SPIRAL ARCHITECT, SATYRICON, and LUNARIS. I will return to Norway in a few weeks to record 6 or 7 more songs for this album which is due out next spring. I understand that we are booked to play Inferno 2006 in Oslo, Norway on April 14th.
"Unnamed project two: This was supposed to be the DARKMOON album done with my former NILE bandmate Jon Vesano, but we're going to call it something else. What? We don't know yet, but a demo is finished, and we are in the process of shopping it around so we can record a full album soon. Expect militant death/black metal with anti-religious lyrics on this one. It's going to be a killer album.
"Okay, the live front is where things really get cryptic. First off, it looks like I'll be going to Japan and Korea in December with soon-to-be-named band #1. Just got news of this, and we're still working out the details, as soon as it's finalized, I'll say who it is, unless of course they mention it first. Then in late January, I will start a three-week run of select shows in the U.S., Mexico, and South America with soon-to-be-named band #2. I don't know if I'll be able to talk about this one, as the identities are supposed to be a secret, but in the last few years, the cat has been out of the bag, so I expect it will be common knowledge before long. Either way, I'll post dates on these as soon as I have the final itinerary. Hope to see some of you out there....wherever that may be."
