Dutch death metallers ANTROPOMORPHIA have added a second guitar player to their ranks.

Comments the band: "After an extended journey through the mazes of darkness a new fire has been lit to illuminate our ritual masses. We are proud to announce that we've welcomed a new member to our nekromantian horde : J. (full name Jos van den Brand) is an experienced guitar player who we know for many years and played in several prestigious Dutch (death) metal acts since the early '90's. With J in our presence the preparations have begun to open the portals and to set ablaze every stage that comes on our path/journey."

Antropomorphia have reacted to a letter their label Metal Blade Records received from the German BPJM (Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons) that included an indexing request for the band's latest album Evangelivm Nekromantia. The letter claims the cover artwork of the album as well as the song 'Fleisch' illustrate and address killings and violence in an autotelic way. Furthermore they don't seem to be too happy about the album title.

Comments the band: "We've made certain people nervous and uncomfortable with our music and lyrical content. In order to 'protect' the children, it's quite possible Evangelivm Nekromantia will be banned and removed from German stores. Through their ridiculous and hypocrite way of thinking they are not letting people use their own intelligence or freedom of choice, this in an era where you turn on the news and see the world's vile and repulsive excrements in full HD. These people are nothing more than a bunch of pitiful sheep! They might think this ban will be castigation but it will only strengthen us in our opposition towards these sad shallow people that crowd the world with their insignificant lives. To us, it's the perfect representation of people without perception other than a retarded opinion about an artistic expression."

In other news, Antropomorphia have just finished another video shooting, this time around for the song 'Debauchery In Putrefaction'.
