||Danish progressive power metallers Pyramaze have posted the following update on their Facebook page: "Pyramaze are proud to announce that Michael Kammeyer's (guitars) replacement is in fact our longtime producer and very good friend Jacob Hansen (Invocator, Anubis Gate, Beyond Twilight)."
"It seemed so natural to us to bring Jacob on board, given that he has always felt like an extra member of the band anyways. He has been with us since the beginning, producing, mixing and mastering Melancholy Beast and Legend Of The Bonecarver, and mixing and mastering Immortal."
"It's no secret that Michael was the main songwriter in Pyramaze, as well as the backbone of the band in every conceivable way. However with our new lineup that also consists of original members Morten Gade (Wuthering Heights) and Jonah W. (Structure Of Inhumanity, Echoterra), longtime lead guitarist Toke S. and new vocalist Urban Breed (Tad Morose), we have split up the songwriting duties, and pledge to put our hearts and souls into this new album and the future of Pyramaze. Michael's shoes are big ones to fill, (literally) and in doing so we feel that we are honoring his legacy to the best of our abilities. Before Michael and Niels (bass) had announced their departures from the band, we had already arranged to have Jacob mix the new album, so the transition has gone smoothly to say the least."
"We want to thank our fans for standing by us through all of our hardships, and we promise to deliver the best album we can. We love you all!"
