KEEP OF KALESSIN/SATYRICON guitarist Obsidian C. (a.k.a. Arnt "Sid" Grønbech) has commented on the recent announcement that KEEP OF KALESSIN's vocalist, Attila Chisar, has rejoined Norwegian black metallers MAYHEM as the full-time replacement for previous singer Maniac. Writing to the band's official web site, Obsidian said that he doesn't what effect this will have on KEEP OF KALESSIN yet, but that he understands that MAYHEM will be Attila's top priority.

"I have known this would happen for some time now and we're ready for whatever effect it will have on KEEP OF KALESSIN," Obsidian said.

"KEEP OF KALESSIN has 6-7 songs ready for the next album and alot of material that just needs rehearsing and arranging," he continued. "Since I will do a new U.S. tour with SATYRICON in December, we're aiming for a studio session with KALESSIN in March with release in early summer, depending on how busy I will be with SATYRICON in January and February. The entire line-up for the next album will be revealed at a later time."

KEEP OF KALESSIN recently parted ways with drummer Frost (a.k.a. Kjetil Haraldstad, SATYRICON) due to the long distance between him and Obsidian. Replacing him in the group's lineup is the band's old drummer Vyl.

KEEP OF KALESSIN's most recent mini-album, "Reclaim", was released last December through FaceFront Records. The group's first release since 1999's "Agnen: A Journey through the Dark" (Avantgarde), "Reclaim" has been described as a new milestone in Norwegian black metal by the Norwegian press.
