Agathodaimon - New Drummer Found, Search Still On For Vocalist

Agathodaimon's official site and label Nuclear Blast announced the following update:

Guitarist Sathonys explains:
"We are currently finishing the works on our upcoming fifth album Phoenix, but still on the search for a new vocalist as permanent member. Please note that we only consider vocalists that live in Germany; it's no use having someone that lives far away in the band, as we insist on steady rehearsals. Thanks to all those people from around the globe who showed their interest so far, but seriously, this makes no sense to us. We prefer to rehearse often, and this might become complicated if you're living on another continent. Until a new member is found, Jonas Iscariot will support us for upcoming gigs such as the one in Romania, 26th July. Skilled and motivated vocalists are invited to send info/bio and samples of their work to management@agathodaimon.de!"

"Hi Ladies / Gentlemen

Hope everyone is doing good...?

We're all real excited about making this album, we have our own studio set-up and a whole new outlook on how to make this next record a screaming fucking monster...!!!! with Andy Rosser-Davies now in the band there's gonna be lots of fresh input and a slightly different slant to the 'Slaught'...He's a very aggressive player, very much like me, so the musical violence is gonna be increased considerably...with serious amounts of shredding.......!!!!!

Glittertind - Delay With New Album

Viking/Folk metal band Glittertind has had some setbacks with the release of their new album. Pre-production for seven songs has been completed already and five more will be done by the end of this month and the full production will be done by August. However the recording of the folk instruments, orchestras and choirs had to be be delayed until September. The mixing for these will take place in October/November.

"We are making some huge arrangements and we had to re-schedule the production to reach our quality mark for these recordings. A new temporary release-date is set to March 2009 and there will be no more delays after this."
