Ex-CoF Drummer Performs On New Samsas Traum

Drummer Adrian Erlandsson (NEMHAIN, BRUJERIA) has posted this message on his MySpace page:

"Dear friends,

I am proud to announce that I have just completed the drums for the upcoming SAMSAS TRAUM record 'Heiliges Herz' and I will be joining them accompanying tours. I really like the music - these guys got a strange kind of humour. I agreed to the cooperation shortly after I listened to the first demo tracks.

Some of the new songs will already be presented live in September, along with old smash hits being performed for the first time every with real drums and a new lineup. 'I can't wait to play the tracks live' - SAMSAS TRAUM are eager to kill.

Meanwhile, the drum recordings for 'Heiliges Herz' were finished in a studio in London - skillfully supervised by Dan Turner."

"The result even impresses me. I can't believe that what's blasting out of the speakers is my own music", enthuses Alexander Kaschte, bandleader of SAMSAS TRAUM, suitably stunned. He adds: "I'm getting closer to the record I always wanted to make."
