COLDERA, the new melodic metal band featuring former CELLADOR guitarist Bill Hudson, former INTO ETERNITY drummer Adam Sagan, former OUTWORLD singer Carlos Zema and up-and-coming shredder John Slaughter, has issued the following update:
"After considering and talking to a lot of people from all around the world, we've been able to select the best bass player to complete our lineup. We're pretty sure most of you have heard of him, as his former band has become quite succesful in the last two years, especially in the USA, although he's based in the UK (hint?). This guy will blow everybody away with his technique, precision and amazing stage presence. We can't wait to take COLDERA on the road. That, along with the first pre-production track for our upcoming album will posted online during this upcoming week. Our MySpace page will also be officialy launched by then."
"If you want to check it out right now (it has no music yet), feel free to do so at www.myspace.com/officialcoldera."
COLDERA's debut album is expected to be released in the second half of 2008.
Singer Carlos Zema has left Texas prog metallers OUTWORLD due to "different views concerning the bands music, as well as to pursue other interestes in his career."
Commented Zema: "I really think it's time to explain the reasons why I decided to not be a part of OUTWORLD any longer. I had to leave my entire personal life, business, properties, and students behind in Brazil when I recieved the invitation to be a part of this awesome project. Because of that, I decided to move to the USA and start a new life from zero. My personal family issues contributed, but in reality were not the main reason I decided to leave the band.
"First of all, let me say that there were excellent musicians in this last lineup: Rusty Cooley, Matt Smith, Shawn Kascak and Bobby Williamson! It was definitely a great honor for me to play with these guys!
"Now, for the reasons why I left… First: During this period of time together, the band was starting to head in two different stylistic directions, dividing us: Rusty, Shawn and Matt started wanting to write MESHUGGAH-sounding type of mterial. They wanted a second guitarist, different type of vocals, etc. Bobby and I started having a hard time fitting in vocal melodies and keyboard arrangements. So when Bobby left the band, I decided that my efforts and vocals would be worth more elsewhere." More...
