Destiny Announce New Guitarist

Long-running Swedish metallers DESTINY have found a replacement for the departed Janne Ekberg in former member Floyd Constantin, who played on the band's second album, "Atomic Winter", and was a member of DESTINY between 1986 and 1988. Before joining DESTINY the first time, Floyd was an original KING DIAMOND member but was replaced by Andy La Rocque before the first KING DIAMOND album was completed.

Commented the band in a statement: "Since leaving DESTINY he and the band lost contact until we (Floyd Constantin and Stefan Bjornshog) bumped into each other a couple of years ago in Jonkoping, Sweden. The next time we talked was last year when I called Floyd to ask his permission to add one of his unreleased DESTINY songs as a bonus track for the re-recording of 'Atomic Winter'. Floyd agreed and was invited to take part in the whole re-recording project that will take place later this year. After this we kept in contact and when Janne left the band both Floyd and I was interested in getting together again to see if the old magic still was there. When the Tony Martin gigs was offered we decided that this was the right time to stop talking and start playing and here we are."

DESTINY plan to record and release their new album, "Cold Fire", later this year. "Atomic Winter" (1988) will be released as a double CD with a re-mastered version of the original album as well as the re-recorded version in 2007 when the band celebrate their 25th anniversary. "Nothing Left To Fear" (1991), the band's third album, will also be part of the anniversary and will get the same treatment as "Atomic Winter", including not one but four newly recorded unreleased bonus tracks.
