Swedish Death Metallers CUT UP featuring former VOMITORY members sign to Metal Blade!
Debut album to be released this summer!
Metal Blade is proud to announce the addition of Swedish Death Metallers CUT UP to it's roster!
CUT UP were founded by drummer Tobias Gustafsson and vocalist/bassist Erik Rundqvist in early 2014. After disbanding Vomitory
by the end of 2013 after 24 years of death metal duty, the two felt it
obvious to continue creating death metal together. Very soon, guitarist
Anders Bertilsson and guitarist/vocalist Andreas Björnson were recruited
and CUT UP was complete. Both Bertilsson - who was previously
and most notably in Coldworker (2006-2013) - and Björnson - also known
from Fetus Stench - share the same musical ideals as Gustafsson and
Rundqvist as well as the passion to play live.
The next months followed with hard work, writing and rehearsing, and in
November 2014 they entered the studio and recorded 11 songs for the yet
untitled debut album. With the band members' collective resume and
repute in the metal scene, you can expect nothing but violent, catchy,
groovy and grinding death metal from CUT UP.
More info on the debut album, a first track and the front art will be announced and revealed shortly!
Comments drummer Tobias Gustafsson: "I am very happy, proud, honoured
and excited to team up with Metal Blade Records once again, this time
with CUT UP! Can't stay away from playing death metal, obviously, so it
feels fantastic to have this murderous ensemble together so soon after
putting Vomitory into eternal sleep. Cut Up is not just "another
project", but all four members' new main band. We have made a debut
album that we are tremendously satisfied with, both material- and
production-wise. We can't wait to let you hear it! Cut Up aim to hit the
stages as soon as the album is released, so we hope to see you all in
the front row and in the pit!"
CUT UP is:
Erik Rundqvist - vocals & bass
Andreas Björnson - vocals & guitar
Anders Bertilsson - guitar
Tobias Gustafsson - drums
