Dutch brutal death metallers SEVERE TORTURE have started the writing process for their next album, the follow-up to 2007’s SWORN VENGEANCE.

SEVERE TORTURE bassist PATRICK BOLEIJ discusses the band’s recent activities:

“Here’s a short update to let you all know what’s been going on in the Severe Torture camp over the last couple of months. We’ve actually been working our asses off, writing the finest death metal tunes possible. We have about 6 songs down and riffs and ideas for 4 or 5 more. We’ll be finishing those in the next 2 months. Musically it’s gonna be one of the fastest, sickest and most brutal Severe Torture records ever! This stuff is gonna be fuelled by the sheer disgust of all the whimpy, lame-ass, fashion-crap that’s been polluting the music industry for years. And it made us realize all the more what we love most… Playing brutal fuckin’ death metal. The plan is to start pre-production in July and have everything ready for recording in September.

“As far as festivals go we have a pretty laid-back Summer coming up; “Neurotic Deathfest” on May 30th in Tilburg (Netherlands) and “Move Your Fucking Brain” in Barcelona (Spain) on the 4th of July. We are exited to play at Neurotic again this year and we can’t wait to play Spain again in July. Maybe we’ll throw in a new song just to try out, who knows… Check our MySpace in the coming months for more updates and video-previews of the new stuff. It’s gonna be brutal!”
