Chton Announce New Drummer

CHTON, the Norwegian death metal band featuring Kenneth of KEEP OF KALESSIN and Torstein of MANES, have announced the addition of drummer Vegar "Vyl" Larsen (KEEP OF KALESSIN) to the group's ranks. "He is now our permanent drummer, and has already contributed to the songwriting process," the band write on their web site.

"For those of you who saw us in Bergen, Oslo, Kristiansand or Trondheim in 2004, [you] may be familiar with his skills, since he filled in for Vidar all through last autumn...

"We have two songs done already plus lots of loose riffs and parts, and we feel it'll be our strongest material ever! Dark, brutal and totally Chtonian death fucking metal!!!

"On a different note; we signed to Retribute Records for only one album, and we've chosen not to resign with them for our next album. Our plan is to have material for a full new album ready by late autumn 2005 and we're currently on the look-out for a label daring enough to release it..."

CHTON's debut album, "Chtonian Lifecode", was recorded, mixed and mastered at Godt Selskap Studio between April and June 2004 and was released last August through Retribute Records. The album includes guest vocals by Attila Csihar (MAYHEM, ex-TORMENTOR) and Frediablo (NECROPHAGIA, GRIMFIST). A full-length MP3 of the album track "Unholy Communion" can be downloaded at this location.

CHTON's next live appearance will take place on Saturday, July 23 at the Fosen Rock festival in Bjugn, Norway. Also scheduled to perform are GRIFFIN and TRIOSPHERE, among others.
