Godyva Recruits New Bassist

After the separation from Nick Barah and several intensive auditions, the gothic metal band Godyva has announced new bassist Paela. The new member comments: “For me it's a huge pleasure to join this band. Everybody work professionally and with the right ambition and humility. I can't wait to play with them live!”

Vocalist Lady Godyva adds, “We've been lucky enough getting the chance to check several very talented bass players, but Paela soon seemed to be on a higher level to me ... and then it's a great wag with his hometown strange dialect!”

Drummer Enyo also states: “I've never felt in my entire life a feeling so marked and powerful between my drums and the bass lines.”

This upcoming July 26th, Paela will play his first concert with Godyva in the Italian city of Bari at La Nueva Vida.
