Official statement.

There are changes in Lead Weight. The bass guitarist's position, occupied by Jesus (ex-ALLONS and NEFORMAT), was taken by VLAD, known for his work with IZVERG as a bass player and a lead singer. Also in the band there's a new drummer Scarred (ex- IZVERG). The guitar tandem Yermola-Grom remained the same. The band has been intensively practising with the new members and as soon as this summer, will come up with the new music set. The band respects its former members and wishes them well in all of their new projects.

Almost all participants of the compilation: Holy Dragons; Requiem; Neformat; Mjertvye Dushi; Black Fox and Inkarna - performed for a large audience in presentation at the "Metropol" club last night. The first disc of a planned series introduced the whole diversity of Almaty and provincial stage from techno-death "LEAD WEIGHT" to retro-power "HOLY DRAGONS". The compilation presents almost all styles of modern extreme music, except that, only excluding grindcore and industrial. This project with a financially sound first part promises to become a systematic issue and give to the audience an opportunity to get to know the whole palette of Kazakhstan's informal music.
