The follow up to their well-received 2009 EP, Welcome To The Graveyard, promises to bring the most groove-laden and primal death metal exported from Sweden in some time.

In support of their upcoming release, FERAL will join Swedish death metal masters DEMONICAL, Germany's ARROGANZ and GLORIA MORTI (on select dates) for the "Death Infernal Tour" which will wreak havoc across the European countryside this May. Vocalist Hook had this to say about the outing,


"We are thrilled to hit the road with one of our favorite bands from Sweden right now, there is no doubt that we will have a complete blast with Demonical and the rest of the lineup. We are also looking forward to finally get a chance to promote our album "Dragged to the Altar" that will be released before the tour. Europe should best prepare itself, because in early May we will open the gates and let the death metal flow!"

Formed in the small Northern Swedish town of Norsjo in late 2003 by vocalist Hook and bassist Valmer, Feral was originally known simply as Valmer & Hook. Though the duo never intended for the project to be anything more than a 'joke band,' Valmer and Hook soon saw potential in what they were doing and decided to take things to the next level. After relocating to the nearby town of Skellefteċ, the pair teamed up with guitarist Svarte Petter and drummer Damien before eventually rounding out their roster with the addition of guitarist Big Mac. With the lineup complete, the band soon began writing and performing around their native Sweden. It was during this time that they took on the name Feral; chosen to match the wild and untamed force and raw power of the band.


Soon thereafter, Feral began recording demos and playing some very high-profile gigs, including a month long European tour with death metal legends Master in February of 2009 and a mini-tour with Six Feet Under in September of the same year. In between these tours, Feral returned to the studio to record the highly acclaimed Welcome To The Graveyard demo, which caught the attention of Ibex Moon Records' owner, John McEntee, who signed the band to his label late last year.


With a solid lineup, a firm and strong sound, and all the determination in the world, the band now feels stronger than ever before! At the onset of 2010, the group recording their debut full-length CD, Dragged To The Altar, which is to be released on April 26th, 2011 via Ibex Moon Records.


Only time will tell what the future holds for Feral, but some things are certain:

The band is far from a joke these days. The Feral beast has only just been born, and it will grow stronger and bigger each day. Any obstacles will be struck down, any antagonists will be mangled. The plague will spread, the creature will roar and every time you gaze into the darkness you will see those glowing eyes staring back at you, hungry for more.
