||Danish Folk Metal band Svartsot have announced the following on their MySpace:
"After having been in contact with a few vocalists and trying one or two of them out, we have finally found one just two weeks before the first show with the new line up! The new man is Thor Bager of Disintergrated (DK) who only had a week to prepare himself for the first rehearsal. We have just held a rehearsal weekend with him and he has settled quite well into the band already. We can also announce that drummer Danni Lyse Jelsgaard has now joined the band on a permanent basis.
Work on the new material has already started, and we will concentrate on this over the next few months. We hope to enter the studio as soon as the material is ready and all the formal procedures have been sorted."
In January, the band already announced the addition of several new musicians: "Rhythm guitar duties will be filled by the Danish-American Cliff Nemanim and ex-Feverfew bassist, James Atkin has also joined. We have also been fortunate enough to borrow the extremely talented Illnath drummer, Danni Jelsgaard. These guys have joined Hans-Jørgen Martinus Hansen (whistles, mandolin, accordion, et.al.) and Cris J. S. Frederiksen (lead guitar), of the previous Svartsot line-up. We can also confirm that Stewart Lewis, though taking a more passive role due to his wife's illness, is still in the band."
