Dark Order Announces New Guitarist

"Yes folks, after 2 years, we now have a permanent second guitar player! It's Doug Dalton, formerly of many bands, including Grungeon. Full power has been restored to the Dark Order sound, as we continue to write the third album/DVD, which should be out June 2005. Doug's experience in the world of metal should prove invaluable. Doug's first gig was a surprise shocking appearance on the Metal for the Masses gig at the Annandale Hotel, last Friday night, where 400 metal maniacs witnessed Dark Order and its new power. The band received allot of great compliments that night, some people even commenting that Dark Order was the band of the night!

In other news, Dark Order's plans for an international tour for 2004 have been moved ahead to 2005, after the third album release, due to financial constraints suffered by singer Raul (shit happens!).

Also, Dark Order has a new web address: www.darkorder-metal.com

So from all of us, to our latest new brother, Doug...
