Krypteria drummer, S.C. Kuschnerus, checked in with the following recap on the Go-to-Gö festival, which took place in Görisried, Germany, on Friday (April 16) with substitute guitarist, Olli Singer. Singer is currently taking over guitar duties for Chris Siemons, who had to sit out the tour due to health problems.
"We are back from our trip to the Allgäu and the Go to Gö, which turned out to be a very memorable and pleasurable experience for us, even though driving to a gig without our axeman Chris for the first time in Krypteria's six year history felt somewhat odd.
"Nevertheless, the festival's organizers deserve high praise for setting up this amazing event in a spectacular setting while the entire Doro camp was super helpful and mega sweet as always. Due to logistical circumstances we even used Doro's backline this time which went smoothly as well.
"Thanks to the perfect conditions we were able to rock the enormous venue big time. Ji-In was her energetic self and won over the crowd, so we were able to not only enjoy the audience's fervent encore demands but also seize the opportunity to meet with the fans in a fun atmosphere.
"By the way, Chris' live substitute Olli Singer had an awesome debut...and following our performance we also found out that Olli not only is a wild thing on stage, but an aftershow party animal, too.
"Therefore we gladly give the entire Go to Gö experience a double thumbs up !!!"

Krypteria's guitarist, producer and founding member Chris Siemons is forced to hang up his live guitar for the time being.
His health problems, which had already caused the group to cancel their German tour last October, unfortunately have taken a turn for the worse. Therefore, his doctor insisted on Chris avoiding any activity that might potentially aggravate the situation and lead to permanent bodily damages let alone paralysis.
Beginning with Krypteria's performance at the "Go to Gö" festival this Friday, Olli Singer (ex-Lolita Nace) will take over live guitar duties for Chris Siemons.
Chris Siemons: "Olli is a phenomenal guitarist and a great guy, who fits in perfectly with us. And while I'll dearly miss performing on stage, I am more than confident that Olli will do a wonderful job filling in for me live."
Drummer S.C. Kuschnerus: "Krypteria's original line-up will not undergo any changes. However, Chris will focus on the management aspects of the band to a greater extent than ever. And thanks to his enormous expertise in that field it will only make Krypteria a stronger entity."
Besides working on the upcoming Krypteria album with his band mates Chris is facing a lengthy rehabilitation process which ideally will help him avoid surgery, improve his health substantially and eventually may allow him to return to the stage.

"My Fatal Kiss" was released in August 28 in Germany, Austra and Switzerland and features the single "For You I'll Bring the Devil Down."
German goth-metallers Krypteria has checked in with the following tour update:
"When it became obvious that we would not be able to do our October tour throughout Germany due to [guitarist] Chris' condition, we immediately went to work on an adequate alternative so we would still be able to perform "My Fatal Kiss" live for our fans in 2009.
"Today we gladly announce Krypteria's return to the live circuit for this December.
"Even though we have not been able to set up a full-fledged headliner tour due to obvious logistical issues, we've received a little, no, a ton of help from a friend: Doro Pesch, the metal queen herself, and her booking agency Noisegate Productions just invited us to join them as special guest on their December tour - wow !
"The Hard&Heavy icon from Duesseldorf and Krypteria have some history together: In 2008 Doro, being one of the nicest people in all of Rock'n'Roll, had asked [singer] Ji-In to join her on her single 'Celebrate'; a couple of months later they performed the song - originally mixed by Krypteria's Chris - at Doro's 25th live anniversary event with All-Girl All-Star line-up.
"With Doro and the guys in her band always kicking major ass and us being determined to royally rock the crowds as well, this should shape up to be one heck of a live double whammy before Christmas."

German goth-metal band Krypteria has checked in with the following message:
"Dear Krypterians, dear friends,
"it is with great disappointment that we announce today the cancellation of our upcoming German tour dates.
"Last weekend Chris [Siemons, guitars] aggravated a herniated disc in his neck, an injury he originally suffered last winter while skiing. Part of the vertebral body is impacting the spinal cord, thus causing severe pain and palsy. Despite Chris immediately undergoing medical treatment in order to get back to 100% as quickly as possible, him being able to go on tour in October unfortunately is out of the question.
"We were so looking forward to performing for you and meeting you guys after the show; thanks to your numerous mails we know you were as pumped about this tour as the four of us. As you can probably imagine this was a huge blow to us, one that'll take some time to recover from.
All we can do right now is to sincerely apologize to you, the fans.
"That said, our team is working feverishly to get us back 'on the road' as soon as possible, hopefully as early as December so we'll get to perform for you live after all !!!
"We hope to see you there,
Ji-In, Chris, Frank & Kusch"
S.C. Kuschnerus, drummer of German goth-metal band Krypteria, has checked in with the following recap on the M'era Luna Open Air in Hildesheim, Germany:
"We are back from an exciting trip to the M'era Luna Open Air in Hildesheim. And this is exactly what a great festival is supposed to be: Fantastic weather (albeit pretty damn hot on stage), flawless organisation, an energetic capacity crowd and a chance to meet the fans and the media after the show.
"We could not be happier right now - especially because we admittedly were a tad nervous prior to our performance, which marked our first live action in a year due to the extensive recording process of 'My Fatal Kiss.'
"But you guys made us feel welcome, so to everybody who was there: We thank you for your support and your energy and we hope to see you all during our German tour this October.
"Well, some of you we will see again at next week's Summer Breeze Open Air in Dinkelsbuehl (Sat, August 15, 2 p.m.) - looking very much forward to it.
"Btw. The new Sonic Seducer's magazine cover looks amazing - more on this later."
