Setherial Issues Band Update

Swedish metal band Setherial has issued the following update:

"There haven’t been any updates lately but that doesn’t mean that we are not working hard as usual. We are currently working on a limited edition EP-release that will be released in early 2011. The EP will feature one new track entitled "Treason" and a cover of Zyklon-B's "Warfare". We are also in the beginning of rehearsing new material for our next full length-album."

"A limited edition gatefold LP-version of 'Lords of the night realm' has been released through Funeral Industries, the same label that did the magnificent re-release of 'Nord.' Funeral Industries has been great to work with and we hope to continue our collaboration for years to come. We have always wanted to release a proper LP-version of "Hell eternal" with the correct LP-master and if things work out as planned this will happen in a not too distant future."

"Regarding the line-up we can inform you that our rythm guitarist Thurz left the ranks last year due to lack of dedication and time. Since then we have had a session drummer from Italy while Mysteriis has been handling the bass duities. Right now we are rehearsing with a new local drummer to make things a bit easier when it comes to rehearsing, touring and so on. His skill, personality and dedication fits Setherial perfect and we will most likely sound stronger than ever when we will return to perform live rituals again in 2011. More information regarding this amazing drummer will be presented further on." More...
