Crystal Eyes Singer Leaves

Swedish power metal band Crystal Eyes have posted this press release on their official website:

After twelve years as the lead singer of Crystal Eyes Mikael Dahl will now hand over the job on the new album "Confessions Of The Maker" to former Lost Horizon vocalist Daniel Heiman. Daniel and Mikael have known each other since the early 90s when they played together in a cover band. Daniel sang the lead vocals on the song "The Wizard's Apprentice" on Crystal Eyes latest album "Vengeance Descending," and he agreed already several months ago to sing on one or two songs on the new album. A few weeks ago Mikael approached Daniel about singing on the entire album, which he thought was a great idea and accepted. Daniel IS one of the best singers in the world, and Mikael have at several occasions said that if he would let someone else handle the lead vocals in Crystal Eyes it would be Daniel. Everyone is really excited, and we truly believe that this will bring Crystal Eyes to a whole new level.

Crystal Eyes drummer Stefan Svantesson began laying down the tracks for the new album last Friday, October 15 at Andy La Roqcue's (King Diamond) studio, Los Angered Recordings, in Gothenburg, Sweden. The rest of the band will start working full time in their own studio, Crystal Sounds, on Novemeber 1 and the plan is to have a first mix ready by the end of November.

Mattias Norén (Kotipelto, Jag Panzer, Evergrey, Into Eternity) has just delivered the artwork for "Confessions Of The Maker". A posting on the band's website reads "Most of you are probably quite familiar with Mattias' earlier work, so it shouldn't be a surprise that it differs a lot from Crystal Eyes' previous albums. It has a quite dark overall feeling to match the mood of some of the lyrics on the album, especially of course the title song's." Check out the album cover here.
