Danish folk metallers Svartsot, who recently had several members leave the band, have issued the following announcement about securing a new line up:
"After having been in contact with a few vocalists and trying one or two of them out, we have finally found one just two weeks before the first show with the new line up! The new man is Thor Bager of Disintergrated (DK) who only had a week to prepare himself for the first rehearsal. We have just held a rehearsal weekend with him and he has settled quite well into the band already.
"We can also announce that drummer Danni Lyse Jelsgaard has now joined the band on a permanent basis. Work on the new material has already started, and we will concentrate on this over the next few months. We hope to enter the studio as soon as the material is ready and all the formal procedures have been sorted. We'd like to thank everyone who has contacted us, both fans and musicians, for your support. Cheers, and stay folk metal!"
Folk/Viking metal band Svartsot is seeking three new members after losing their bassist, guitarist, and vocalist. The band issued the following statement:
"After the departure of some of the members last week, Svartsot is now looking for new musicians:
Rhythm guitarist: competent guitarist, preferably baritone/7-string (standard B-tuning). Some knowledge of folk music would be an advantage.
Bassist: competent bassist, preferably 5-string (standard B-tuning). Again some knowledge of folk music would be an advantage.
Vocalist: versatile and competent vocalist, preferably with a range from growl to singing.
Previous live work is a must, and studio work an advantage in all cases. We have concerts booked for the spring, ande are working on new material for the follow up to Ravnenes Saga. So please, no time-wasters.
