Nicodemus Add Keyboardist and Guitarist

Portland based progressive metallers, NICODEMUS, have secured two new permanent members in keyboardist, Erik Scholibo, and guitarist, Chris Finster. Up until the recent addition of Scholibo, all keyboards had been handled by bassist/vocalist/band leader, Christopher Morris. Finster, however, replaced previous guitarist, Matthew McGee, who had played on the band's last two releases.

Scholibo had previously filled in on keyboards for Nicodemus during a few 2003 tour dates, and had also acted as the band's session photographer in 2004. Scholibo is the owner of Geomana Studios in Portland where the band recorded their recent release, "Vanity Is A Virtue".

Prior to joining Nicodemus, Finster was the bands' engineer and co-producer for "Vanity Is A Virtue", and he had also contributed some guitar and vocals to the album. Finster is a producer and engineer at Geomana Studios, and in addition to his role in Nicodemus, plays with Scholibo in an experimental metal band named Garuda's Mission.

As previously reported, Nicodemus released their third album titled "Vanity Is A Virtue" through the Greek based Sonic Age Records in June of 2005. The album decidedly owes more to the progressive sound than previous Nicodemus releases, 2000's "Tales of the Lovelorn and Necromantic"(Dark Throne Music) and 2003's "The Supernatural Omnibus" (Dark Symphonies), which saw the band focusing on a goth/black metal based sound with progressive elements.
