||KRUX, the Swedish band featuring CANDLEMASS mainman/bassist Leif Edling, ex-YNGWIE MALMSTEEN singer Mats Levén, ENTOMBED drummer Peter Stjärnvind, guitarist Jörgen Sandstrom (also in THE PROJECT HATE, ex-ENTOMBED/GRAVE), and current ARCH ENEMY guitarist Fredrik Åkesson, recently entered Studioland studio in Upplands Väsby, Sweden to record a three-song demo of material to be included on the band's forthcoming sophomore album. The tracks currently being recorded are (working titles): "Lex Lucifero", "The Big Empty" and "Devil Sun". If all goes well, KRUX will return to Studioland in late December to begin recording their second full-length effort, tentatively due in early 2006 via an as-yet-undetermined label.
KRUX, who are currently unsigned, released their self-titled debut album in 2002 via Holland's Mascot Records. A live DVD containing the band's entire performance from May 18, 2003 at Kägelbanan in Stockholm, Sweden, plus a promo video for the track "Black Room" and an interview, was issued in 2003.
