Norwegian power metallers GAIA EPICUS have announced the addition of drummer Ole A. Myrholt (ARCHON, DIABOLICAL, BREED, ENSLAVEMENT OF BEAUTY, I WAS FLESH ONCE, VALE, THE WHIPCORDS) to the group's ranks. "Myrholt is no stranger to the music industry as he has been in many bands," the group write on their web site. "Now he is a member of GAIA and we are sure he will do a great job of pounding the drums for the band."
GAIA EPICUS have recently uploaded their video for the track "Hands of Fate" (Windows Media). The clip was shot "outdoors in the forest" in August and features a guest appearance on drums by Robert Myrhaug (MEMORIZED DREAMS).
"Hands of Fate" comes off the group's second album, "Symphony of Glory", available now on Sound Riot Records. The follow-up to 2003's "Satrap" was recorded and mixed over a five-week period at Top Room Studios (TRISTANIA, VINTERSORG, BORKNAGAR) with producer Børge Finstad and features artwork by Michael A. Mueller (MEGADETH). The CD was mastered at Bazement Studios.
VALE, the new Tampa, Florida-based band featuring Shawn Brandon (guitar, ex-DISCIPLE 13), Dan Procengal (guitar) and Dave Bizzigotti (bass, ex-RIPPING CORPSE), have parted ways with ex-DEAD TO FALL drummer Dan Craig "due to his lack of commitment to playing," according to a press release. A replacement drummer has yet to be announced. Anyone interested in auditioning should contact the band at Valemusic@hotmail.com (only serious inquires).
