Long-running Dutch death/thrash metal band Thanatos are busy mixing a new album. Thanatos guitarist/vocalist Stephan Gebédi has poted the following message on the band's MySpace:

"It took us a fucking long time, but in a couple of months, "Justified Genocide", our 5th full length album, will finally hit the shelves. The album is currently being mixed by Dan Swanö and it's great to see the album actually (and finally) taking shape now. After all the delays and the record label shit we've been through once again, it's a real good feeling to listen to the - almost - finished recordings now. It's pretty safe to say that this album will have the rawest, most dirty and "in your face" sound we ever managed to achieve on a Thanatos record. It features some of the fastest, most aggressive shit we ever recorded, but of course we also have some slower, heavier parts. The emphasis definitely lies on thrash metal, but as always there's also some death metal in our songs. Judge for yourself in March. We'll upload another song (rough mix) on our MySpace page in early February. We'll also make sure that the album will be directly available through our website."

The title track of the forthcoming CD as well as the song "They Feed On Fear" can be streamed on http://www.myspace.com/thanatos666.

In 2009 Thanatos will celebrate the band's 25th anniversary since they first emerged from the Netherworlds. The band recently signed a record deal with Deity Down Records.

Currently the quartet is comprised of founding member Stephan Gebédi (guitars/vocals, guitars in Hail Of Bullets), Paul Baayens (guitars, Hail Of Bullets, Asphyx), Marco de Bruin (bass) and drummer Yuri Rinkel (Melechesh).
