To-Mera Issues Recording Update

Prog metallers To-Mera have issued the following recording update:

"Yesterday we completed the drum recording at Z1 studios under the supervision of Jaime Gomez, who did a sterling job!

"Since the recording of 'Delusions', Paul has been developing a new technique, which we have dubbed 'vertical drumming'. So dedicated has he been to mastering this craft that it has permeated his very being, much as a method actor remains in character until the completion of a project. As such, Paul now exists at a right angle to the rest of the universe, and we have documented this in the photo and video below:" More...

To-Mera Part Ways With Bassist

TO-MERA, the U.K.-based dark progressive metal band fronted by former WITHOUT FACE vocalist Julie Kiss, has parted ways with bassist Lee Barrett (ex-EXTREME NOISE TERROR, DISGUST, MUSSOLINI HEADKICK). It was a decision made at the beginning of the year and a replacement is already in place.

Commented Lee: "I've had a great time playing with the band, but unfortunately my 'real-life' work dictated that I was unable to fulfil any possible future touring or musical commitments. It was only fair to the rest of the band that I left now rather than encounter any potential scheduling conflicts at a later date. I shall hopefully still be involved behind the scenes and taking care of the band's day-to-day business as I have been before, so I'll still be sticking around."

Barrett's replacement in TO-MERA is Mark Harrington, also of DEMAGOGUE.

TO-MERA released its sophomore album, "Delusions", on February 18 via Candlelight Records.

Regarding the new CD's musical direction, Barrett previously said, "All the elements present on [last year's "Transcendental"] have been greatly expanded upon. The music will display a much greater range of moods, tempos and dynamics (ranging from fragile subtlety to epic bombast via everything in between), whilst being simultaneously more sophisticated, yet more melodic and coherent than before. Julie's vocals have become substantially more versatile and powerful. There will be loads more guitar and keyboard (even drum!) solos. But most importantly, we feel this music has a much deeper and more genuine emotional impact to it."

To-Mera Bassist Speaks On Gothic Label And More

Masterful Magazine has recently published an interview with TO-MERA bassist Lee Barrett, conducted by Belgium based scribe Wouter Roemers. The following is an excerpt from the interview:

Q: How much does To-Mera identify itself with this crop of female fronted metal acts around these days? You certainly are heavier, forward thinking and don't base whole albums around your attractive front-woman.

Barrett: "People like to compare us with those typical symphonic/gothic bands, but besides having a female singer, I can't really see what we have in common with them. We're a progressive metal band who just happens to have a female singer. In the past we have turned down press opportunities where magazines were only interested in pictures of Julie, etc. She's just not comfortable in such a role and being seen in this way."

To-Mera’s second album, Delusions, was recorded in August 2007 in London, UK. The album was engineered, produced and mixed by Brett Caldas-Lima of Tower Studio, Montpellier, France and features artwork by Eliran Kantor. Delusions is slated for release on February 18th through Candlelight Records. The song 'Inside The Hourglass', has been posted on the group's MySpace page.
