Swedish gothenburg outfit Engel has released a new video for the song "Question Your Place", which comes off the band's upcoming album Blood Of Saints, set to be released on May 18th via Season Of Mist.

Engel have premiered their new video for the song "Six Feet Deep", off the European release of Threnody. You can watch it below.
The band added the following: "We are very proud to announce the premier showing of our new video "Six Feet Deep". This is one of the stunning new tracks from the European release of Threnody, one of the exclusive songs available from Seasons of Mist on November the 8th so be sure to pre-order your copy now!
The video was made by Engel and the ever talented PA Nilsson for whom we are eternally grateful for his wonderful vision and helping us as always to achieve the almost impossible. PA has been a significant and much valued film director/editor and its always a pleasure to work with him as well as being a great friend. As always, making this video was great fun and the results are visually stunning!"
Season Of Mist is proud to welcome Industrial Metal act Engel!
"We're extremely proud to say that we've inked a deal with the one and only Season Of Mist!" the band comments. "It feels really great to be a part of this company and we look forward to our continued success with them on board. With an established roster of some amazing artists already on their books and Season Of Mist backing us up, we aim for World Domination, starting now!"
With 2010 already being an Industrious year for Engel with the release of their outstanding second Album Threnody launched first in Japan and soon to make its European debut the band are pleased to announce a new addition to the band line up with Jimmy Olausson now seated firmly behind the drum kit as a permanent member.
The departure of former drummer Daniel Mojjo Moilanen has been that of an amicable one and Engel wish him well for the future and thank him for his invaluable contribution over the last years.
Despite his young age Jimmy has already established himself as an outstanding musician most notably for his work with his former band Gothenburg based Marionette and is highly regarded as being one of the premier new talents to arrive on the Swedish Metal scene. Olausson has been playing drums from the age of 5 and from that first moment was immediately hooked and there was really nothing that could stop or curb his interest in drums with the experience being so memorable.
Swedish melodic-death metallers Engel have entered in PUK studio in Gjerlev, Denmark with Danish producer Tue Madsen (The Haunted, Himsa, Sick Of It All) to begin recording its sophomore album for an early 2009 release via SPV Records.
The band has also launched a studio blog featuring photos and regular updates from the recording sessions.
Swedish band Engel have split with bassist Michael Håkansson.
Michael Håkansson states:
"To all you great people out there who has shown your big support and interest in my participation in Engel. I am sad to announce my departure from Engel. It hasn't been an easy decision for me to make... It was a really hard one but at this time I felt it was the right one for me to make. I am not leaving for another band or for any personal or business related issues within the band. Not at all!
It's been a blast to be a part of this fantastic band and one part of me would still like to be a part of Engel's future. For I see nothing but success for Engel, the potential has no limits with these guys. I've been given a once in a life-time offer that I just couldn't say no to. I am now leaving my other big dream in life.
Swedish modern melodic death metallers Engel have posted a second video online, for the song "Next Closed Door". The song comes off the band's debut album "Absolute Design", which was released last year. The clip is filmed in Belgrade, Serbia with Rock The Nation. You can watch the video at this location.
Engel, the Gothenburg-based Melodic Death quintet featuring guitarists Marcus Sunesson (ex-The Crown) and Niclas Engelin (known from Passenger, ex-Gardenian, In Flames), drummer Mojjo (Lord Belial, Runemagick, Relevant Few, Dracena), vocalist Mangan Klavborn, and bassist Michael Håkansson (ex-Evergrey, The Project Hate MCMXCIX), is streaming their debut album "Absolute Design", in its entirety on their website (in the "Album" section).
"Absolute Design" was recorded at Studio Dug Out in Uppsala in the spring of 2007 and is mixed & engineered by Daniel Bergstrand (known from his work for Susperia, In Flames, Meshuggah, Soilwork, Behemoth, Strapping Young Lad and others) and In Flames mastermind Anders Fridén.
Gothenburg-based melodic death metal/metalcore act Engel have been announced as support act for Dimmu Borgir and Amon Amarth on their Invaluable Darkness Tour. The band featuring former members of In Flames, The Crown and Evergrey thus replaces Hatesphere who had pulled out of the tour due to their split with frontman Jacob Bredahl.
In addition Engel also takes part in the European tour of Atreyu and Still Remains. A complete list of dates can be found here.
