ARTHEMESIA Part Ways With Drummer, Postpone Album Recordings

Finnish black metallers ARTHEMESIA have parted ways with drummer Mor Vethor.

"Mor Vethor had to leave the band, because his skills didn't match the requirements of our music, thus all recordings [for our new album] are now cancelled," the band write on their official web site. "We will restart the recording sessions again in the late spring [2004] with our new drummer. And I promise our new drummer will blow your head away (we will inform his name sooner or later, let's keep some secrecy for awhile)! Consider yourselves warned!
Due to the postponed studios, the album will be out in October 4th [2004]."

The group, whose style is being described in an official press release as "an extremely powerful hybrid of black metal and death/thrash/heavy metal with a touch of classical and dark ambient music," are planning on recording and mixing their upcoming album, "ShamaNatahS - II Describe I Mind", in three different studios (Christslayer, Hellhole and Sonic Pump) before mastering it at Finnvox Studios (NIGHTWISH, STRATOVARIUS, SONATA ARCTICA) with Mika Jussila. Cover artwork for the album will be created by Mike Bohatch (Eyes of Chaos).

The complete track listing for the album (in no particular order) is as follows:

01. Mors Principium Est
02. Swampendom
03. Transcendental Mindflow - Into the Cosmos Unknown
04. Uhrikelpoisia Teuraseläimiä
05. Death Executed by Complex Actions
06. The Order of the Opposite Force
07. ShamaNatahS
08. Patheme

"ShamaNatahS - II Describe I Mind" will be released through Holland's Karmageddon Media (formerly Hammerheart Records).
