Gothenburg, Sweden-based metallers ENGEL, featuring IN FLAMES touring guitar replacement Niklas Englin (PASSENGER), Marcus Sunesson (guitar, ex-THE CROWN), Michael Håkansson (bass, ex-EVERGREY), Mangan Klavborn (vocals) and Mojjo (drums), are set to issue album "Absolute Design" in North America on May 20th.

As previously reported, Engel has completed work on the promo videos for the songs 'Casket Closing' and 'Next Closed Door'. After a storming set at the prestigious Get In The Ring event in London, the band flew to Belgrade, Serbia the next morning to start filming the two videos.

Produced by Ivan Colic and Josip Colic at CODE (TYPE O NEGATIVE, DEATHSTARS, SYMPHONY X, MOONSPELL), and Rock The Nation, the band are very pleased with the outcome.

Says guitarist Niclas Engelin: “We got to Serbia/Belgrade in the afternoon, tired from the day before gigging in London so we weren’t quiet up for a video shoot, let alone two! But as soon as we meet up with Stanimir and the crew from Rock The Nation it felt like we were really beginning to fire it up. The scripts they’d written were hand in hand with the lyrics/music for Casket Closing and Next Closed Door."

"There was this easy going vibe and we shared the same kind of ideas - we just clicked. The cool thing about these guys is that they always work with a script and some kind of a story in mind. We hope you will enjoy these videos as much as we do!”

The first video to be released is 'Casket Closing', which can be viewed here:
