And Don't Deliver Us From Evil will consist of 7 brand new songs, that are currently being recorded at Elfo Studio (Piacenza, Italy).

Italian black/doom metal outfit Forgotten Tomb has parted ways with their long serving guitarist Razor SK. The band had the following to say:
"We announce that the show at Nihil Extreme Metal Fest VIII in Italy has been the last show for our long-time lead guitar player Razor SK, after 9 years playing live with the band as well as four albums and one EP recorded (Love's Burial Ground, Negative Megalomania, Vol 5: 1999/2009, Under Saturn Retrograde and the latest Tribute to GG Allin split 7 with Whiskey Ritual, to be released in October 2011).
Forgotten Tomb have signed a deal with Polish Agonia Records. The band will enter the studio at the end of August 2010 to record the brand-new album Under Saturn Retrograde, to be released hopefully in the beginning of 2011.
The band also added the following: "In the meantime, as you may have noticed already, the release-date for Vol.5: 1999/2009 was postponed to August 2010 due to reasons beyond our control, though by now it should be a matter of 1 or 2 weeks before its actual release. Stay tuned for news! Also, the Love's Burial Ground 2LP is in the making and should be out around October 2010 on Funeral Industries."
Forgotten Tomb have issued the following update regarding their recent activities:
"The new monumental double live in studio "VOL.5: 1999-2009" has been finally mastered and it's ready to enter the printing factory. This means we'll have it out and available pretty soon, like in June 2009 or so. Negotiations with the label who's gonna release it are work-in-progress too. An European release will come first, then a US release will follow shortly after. New samples from 3 songs of it are online now! Be sure to check them out and leave a comment, and spread the word!
In the meantime, the band has been confirmed for the big Italian open-air festival Agglutination XV and a few other gigs, be sure to check them out! The band is also working hard on the new full-lenght album "Under Saturn Retrograde", and it's negotiating a deal with labels to produce it and release it. The band could enter the studio again soon to record it, most probably in the end of 2009."
The following message was posted on the Italian Doom Metal band's website:
"The time has finally come: "Obscura Arcana Mortis: The Demo Years" is out!! This CD includes the remastered reissue of the now-classic debut Demo-MCD of the band "Obscura Arcana Mortis" (originally recorded in 1999 and released during 2000 in a strictly-limited edition of 215 copies) plus 2 lenghty and exclusive Live bonus-tracks (recorded in 2004 at Waking The Dead Fest, The Netherlands).
The CD is completed with fully renewed graphix and liner notes by Herr Morbid, including never-seen-before pictures taken between 1998 and 2000. A must to have for all the true FT fanatics worldwide!! The CD is limited to 1000 hand-numbered copies and it has been released by italian label Eerie Art Records (www.eerieartrecords.com). A cold, dark and monumental piece of pure old-fashioned Black Metal that every fan of this music should have in his collection. Fast, uncompromising and with a killer-sound too, no lo-fi bullshit here! You can order it from Eerie Art Records or directly from the band or by visiting the Merchandise page of our website."
Exclusive news was posted on the Italian Doom Metal band's website:
Herr Morbid entered the german Dark Metal legends Bethlehem as the new guitar player!! This is the announcement, directly from the Official Bethlehem MySpace: "We proudly present our new guitarist known as "Herr Morbid" of Forgotten Tomb. Bartsch and Morbid soon will start writing a new Bethlehem longplayer for 2008 which more will follow the dark path again, containing some more sick and disturbing ideas like once done on the 90s albums. All other informations who else will play on this record are given to a later date and arent relevant yet. First we have to collect some song ideas, so please dont bother bout possible vocal rumours or other useless things spred around in the underground at the moment. Thank you." Be prepared!!!
The following statement was posted by frontman Herr Morbid on Forgotten Tomb's official homepage:
"It looks like the german media (in particular: Legacy Magazine) are trying to boycott Forgotten Tomb without reserve. Not only they refused to interview the band and review "Negative Megalomania", but they refused to include the advertisement for our new album in their fucking magazines too. The nazi-paranoia going on in the german Metal scene is nothing new, but I think this time they're really going beyond any reasonable measure. Starting from the idea that ALL Black Metal bands are automatically Nazi and basing their paranoia on completely unreliable sources, these magazines are trying to boycott our band in every possible way. It seems like the band won't be able to play live-shows in Germany too, due to this fucking Anti-FT Propaganda.
Italian Black/Doom metal band Forgotten Tomb will release their new album ''Negative Megalomania'' in Spetember 2006. This album shows a significative evolution of the band, which added many new elements to their classic style, creating a bleak, perverse and apocalyptic vision of life and future. Track List:
01. Negative Megalomania
02. Blood and Concrete
03. The Scapegoat
04. A Dish Best Served Cold
05. No Rehab (Final Exit)
The album will be call "Darkness In Stereo", here is the comments of the band:
"New album of the band, the 4th full-lenght, will be titled simply "DARKNESS IN STEREO". Even if it could sound expected, you'll understand why the band decided to call the new album this way when you'll finally have the chance to listen to the new material... No other title could describe in a better way the feeling of this new opus. If you thought "Love's Burial Ground" was the absolute climax of Negativity and despair, you'll be astonished listening to "Darkness In Stereo". You can start trash all the supposedly "Depressive Black Metal" releases you bought in the past 5 years now..."
