Satariel Announces Return Of Founding Member

Satariel has issued the following announcement about the return of former guitarist Mikael Granqvist:

"Satariel welcome guitarist and founding member Mikael Granqvist back in the band. When Mike decided to quit after recording the Chifra EP, we lost an important creative force and also a big part of the Satariel spirit. It isn't an overstatement to say that much of our drive and resolve vanished - to some extent leading us into the long hiatus we've only just recently recovered from. Therefore, we're really happy that circumstances changed and Mike wanted back in. Fuck yeah!

"We'd also like to extend a huge THANK YOU to Simon Johansson who stepped up when Mike left. Even though not much happened during the years he was a member (sorry...), it was a great feeling having him at our side. Hopefully, he'll still put down some awesome guitar solos as a session member on the forthcoming White Ink, like he did on our last couple of albums. You rule, Simon!"

A sneak peak of the band's "White Ink" album is also available online here.
