"15 years of friendship, joy, M.E.T.A.L., tragedy, madness, sadness and really bad jokes will forever be carved in my mind. Thank you for this.

Mourning Caress has checked in with the following announcement about recruiting a new guitarist:
"Dear caressing mourners,
"We finally found a new guitarist and can officially call ourselves a five-piece again. The new guy is called Wolfgang 'Sandman' Sander, a skilled guitar player and insane metalhead.
"He joined the band directly after the recordings of the new album were completed. So you naturally can't hear him on the new output. In the meantime he got introduced to our friends and families on a very intimate and private gig we played in our rehearsal room some weeks ago. It was a blast! Please check our new facebook site for some pictures of the event.
"We're also happy to unveil the title of our third album: 'Deep Wounds. Bright Scars.' As mentioned above the recordings are done and we are now facing the mixing stage, the mastering is due in April or May. Once this all is finished we need to find a suitable label to release 'Deep Wounds. Bright Scars.' The result is sure enough a heavy and very intensive yet melancholic piece of metal which makes us proud to the bone. We can't wait to share the first songs with you, it's only a matter of time..."

"Still words cannot describe our feelings. On December 29th 2010 our friend and longtime guitarist Benedikt Bjarnason died.
