ANCIENT drummer Diego "GroM" Meraviglia will shortly begin "trial rehearsals" with FIRE TRAILS to see if he will become the band's new official drummer. FIRE TRAILS is the group that was born out of the ashes of the classic Italian hard rock band VANADIUM, featuring the charismatic singer Pino Scotto.As previously reported, ANCIENT have fulfilled their recording obligations to Metal Blade Records and are currently evaluating offers for a new record deal. The band have already begun to prepare the foundations of their next CD. ANCIENT's sixth album, "Night Visit" was released last June through Metal Blade Records. The follow-up to 2001's "Proxima Centauri" was recorded at Mirage and Alpha-Omega studios and was mixed at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström (HAMMERFALL, IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS, etc.). Mastering was done at Sterling Sound in New York City.
