Essen Death Fest
Sweden Rock 2013
Vomitory is playing at Sweden Rock Festival 5-8 of June!
Vomitory 1989 - 2013
After 24 years, eight albums and hundreds of live shows across 30 countries, we have finally come to the end of the road. We in the band - Tobias, Urban, Erik and Peter - have made the collective decision to end Vomitory by the end of 2013. It has been a blast on all accounts, but all good things come to to an end, and for Vomitory it is now.
We will still play as many shows as possible during 2013, and we hope to see as many of you fans as possible there, so we can thank you for your true support during all these years!
Exclusive Vinyl Release!
"Revelation Nausea" and "Blood Rapture" will be released for the very first time on vinyl!
Release date: 22 March 2013, through Cyclone Empire Records; they will be strictly limited to 500 copies each (180 coloured vinyl), gatefold cover and artwork poster.
DENMARK SHOW CANCELLED!
Due to irresponsible and unprofessional behaviour from Club Sick, we have to cancel our show in Odense, Denmark on February 1st, 2013.
We are sorry for this.
It's been a while since our last news update at vomitory.net, but we have been quite active during the summer nonetheless. We experienced two absolutely fantastic shows at Hellfest, France in June and at Obscene Extreme in the Czech Republic. Thanks to every single one of you who attended and gave us your massive support! And a huge thanks n' cheers goes out to superheroes Danny Tunker and Anders Bertilsson for filling in for Peter Östlund on these two shows!
More shows have been added to our autumn schedule, including Gothenburg/Sweden which we haven't played since 2005, a short tour in Norway (playing Bergen and Trondheim for the very first time) and our first show ever in Greece! Finally!
Rehearsals for these shows have begun (with Peter back again), and there are some old classics that we haven't played for quite some time, that we're bringing back into our live set again. Hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!
During the last couple of months, we have also been writing occationally. A few new songs are shaping up now, and it feels great to have taken some first small steps towards a new Vomitory album. No plans on when to record and release it have been made yet though.
Regarding the up-coming shows
Due to family commitments, lead guitarist Peter Östlund will sit out on some of the upcoming shows. So therefore, we have recruited our dear friends Danny Tunker (ex-God Dethroned, ex-Prostitute Disfigurement) and Anders Bertilsson (Coldworker) to step in for Peter.
- 11 May - Kulturhuset, Örebro SWE (supporting Nasum) - with Anders Bertilsson
- 15 June - Hellfest, FRA - with Danny Tunker
- 13 July - Obscene Extreme, CZ - with Anders Bertilsson
All other confirmed shows will be done with the ordinary Vomitory line-up.

Shooting video for "Regorge" on March 19th
On Saturday we will shoot our first proper video ever (!) in Arvika/Sweden (Erik's hometown). We have hired Some Kind Of Bear Media from Uddevalla/Sweden to do the job for us. The song we're shooting for is the opener, "Regorge in the Morgue", from the upcoming new album. The shooting location is in an abandoned dairy factory, so the big stainless doors, the tiled walls and floors are perfect for "the morgue"!
We plan to have it finished in time for the release of the new album. We will try to take some pictures for you to tease you with, if we have the time... It is a tight schedule for sure.
"Regorge In The Morgue" available for streaming!
Metal Blade Records has launched a landing page where the opening track "Regorge In The Morgue" off our up-coming album "Opus Mortis VIII" is available for streaming.

New album details revealed!
We now reveal the front art and track listing for their long-anticipated eighth studio album Opus Mortis VIII!
Produced, engineered and mixed by Rikard Löfgren in his own Leon music studios, Opus Mortis VIII proves to be the best sounding VOMITORY album ever!
Tobias: "Opus Mortis VIII is our eighth album (no shit!) - our eighth Opus of Death. And I dare to say that this is one of the strongest albums we've done, and it most certainly has the most powerful production we've ever had on any album, hands down. For the third time, we worked with Rikard Löfgren in his Leon Music Studios. We raised the bar quite a few notches in the studio - both production-wise and performance-wise, and we couldn't be happier with the result. We are not breaking new death metal ground with this album - that was never Vomitorys' mission - but Opus Mortis VIII offers diversity and dynamics that you haven't quite heard from Vomitory before. Still, this is a very intense and aggressive album in the true Vomitory tradition - all the essential signature details are there. Once you hear the opening track, "Regorge In The Morgue", you will need no further proof of that!"
Opus Mortis VIII will be released their 23rd/26th of April, 2011 via Metal Blade Records in Europe! The limited first edition will be a Digipak featuring four exclusive bonus tracks. Those tracks are re-recorded versions of songs taken off the first two VOMITORY albums.
- 1. Regorge In The Morgue
- 2. Bloodstained
- 3. They Will Burn
- 4. The Dead Awaken
- 5. Hate In A Time Of War

- 11. Nervegasclouds 2011
- 12. Raped In Their Own Blood 2011
- 13. Redemption 2011
- 14. The Voyage 2011

Eighth album complete!
Last Sunday we completed the work on the eighth Vomitory album that we have entitled: OPUS MORTIS VIII
It's our eighth musical work of death, so we think it's a very fitting title + we have some nice things going on artwork-wise.
Producer and studio owner Rikard Löfgren has done a tremendous job to get the best sounding Vomitory album to date - no competition! We are so fucking happy with the result. The production is absolutely top-notch and the material offers diversity and dynamics that you haven't quite heard from Vomitory before. You will get 14 songs altogether (10 brand new songs + 4 bonus tracks). Opus Mortis VIII will be released through Metal Blade Records in April.
Recording for the new album has started!
On Sunday the 14th, we began the recording of the eighth Vomitory full length album at Leon Music Studios outside Karlstad in Sweden. Just like on our two preivous albums, Rikard Löngfgren is engineering and co-producing the album. We will be finished by mid December and the album is planned for an April 2011 release through Metal Blade Records. The album title is set but won't get official until we're done with the recording.
There is a studio diary at the official Vomitory forum at Global Domination. Click HERE to get there. There you will get updates on the progress in the studio, pictures, video clips etc.
Festivals in 2011
We already have two festivals confirmed for 2011, and there are more in the works as I type. We're planning on doing a bunch of more festivals and one or maybe two tours next year to promote the 8th Vomitory album which will be out in April 2011.
- 23-25 June: Death Feast Open Air, Airport Schwarze Heide, Hünxe, GERMANY
- 18-20 August: Summer Breeze Open Air, Dinkelsbühl, GERMANY
It's been a while since the last update here, sorry for that. We've been busy mainly with working on the new material for the new album, which we will start recording in a couple of weeks from now. Drummer Tobias Gustafsson recently went through surgery and are recovering well, and will be fit enough when it's time to start recording. Because of this, we have also rehearsed with the stand-in drummer - Emil Wiksten from Blood Red Throne - for tonight's show together with Unleashed in Karlstad/Sweden.
The new album, which is yet untitled, will follow the same path as our two previous albums, "Terrorize Brutalize Sodomize" and "Carnage Euphoria". It will be recorded, mixed and mastered at Leon Music Studios by Rikard Löfgren. The album is planned for an April release through Metal Blade Records (Europe).
Tobias sits out on Vomitory / Unleashed show
"Unfortunately, I'm forced to sit out on the show we're doing together with Unleashed on October 29th in Karlstad/Sweden. This is because I will undergo back surgery one week earlier. I'm having a herniated disc that has caused me chronical pain in the sciatic nerve in my left leg for two fucking years, and now I will finally get it fixed!
My temporary replacement is Emil Wiksten, the drummer of Blood Red Throne. Emil has already started learning the songs and the guys will start rehearsing together soon.
Even though I'm not able to play this show, the recording of the new album will run just according to plan. The recorvery time for this kind of surgery is relatively short, and in consultation with my doctor, this should not be a problem, although I have to be very careful. Recording starts on November 9th at Leon Music Studios."
New cover song available on MySpace!
Since spring 2005 (!) we have had this little piece of brutality laying in our digital drawer, and we admit it's a shame it hasn't seen the light of day until now! This version of "Mass Appeal Madness" was recorded for a Napalm Death tribute album that never saw the light of day. With this song, we want to give you fans something exclusive but also salute one of the most influential bands for Vomitory - ever since 1989 to present day.
Recorded @ Speedball studios, Karlstad/Sweden in April 2005,
Engineered by Johan Carlsson,
Mixed by Henrik Larsson in Malmö/Sweden a few weeks later

One more show just got official:
- October 29th: Vomitory + Unleashed @ Metal Clüb/Nöjesfabriken, Karlstad, SWE
A few words from the drummer, Tobbias Gustafsson
"This will be the first time ever we'll share the stage with the legendary Unleashed, so we are of course very excited about this! Unleashed was a big source of inspiration in the early days of Vomitory, so this is something we've been waiting for. Be prepared for a special night! And since this show is just a few days before we enter the studio to record the new album, there is a chance we might play a new song exclusively that night!"
New shows confirmed!
- May 1st: SWR Barroselas Metalfest XIII, Barroselas, Portugal
- May 29th: Viksholmsfestivalen - Arvika, Sweden
Re-launch of www.vomitory.net!
A re-designed www.vomitory.net has now been launched!
Nothing really new on the site, but what's new is that our Global Domination friend Maverick and Ensamvarg Design is now our webmaster and also responsible for the new design. Not much has happened at the official Vomitory website since mid-2009, but now we think it will definitely be for the better when Maverick is pulling the strings.
Your comments are welcome!
Spring 2010 update
It's been ages since the last update here. Sorry for that, boys n' girls. But it has its reasons, and partly it's because we've taken it pretty easy in the Vomitory camp since we came back from our successful European tour with Malevolent Creation in September last year, and an overall very busy 2009. Also, this website is being re-designed by Ensamvarg Design (www.ensamvarg.com), which also will be our new webmaster, once the new site is launched.
Two new shows have been confirmed so far:
- March 31: Inferno Festival - Oslo/Norway
- May 1: SWR Barroselas Festival XIII - Barroselas/Portugal (the first Vomitory show in Portugal!)
We are currently working on new material for the next Vomitory album, and so far we have two songs finished. We plan to enter Leon Music Studios in November to record the 8th, yet untitled, Vomitory album.
Official Vomitory merchandise can be purchased from our merchandise partner, In Ur Face (www.inurface.de/Shop). There you find a couple of the designs that were available at our recent European tour.
Head over to the official Vomitory forum at www.globaldomination.se/forums to keep track of the writing process, small news, ask questions to the band members etc. That's where the main action takes place.
