ASSAILANT Parts Ways With Keyboardist

ASSAILANT, the Umeå, Sweden-based band featuring guitarist Oscar Norberg ("little brother" of Emil of PERSUADER/SAVAGE CIRCUS fame and Nils Norberg of NOCTURNAL RITES), has issued the following update:

"Our keyboard player, Peder Sandström, has decided to leave the band due to the lack of interest. And, of course, we feel that it's a damn shame and a bit sad but we are happy for his sake. It is never easy to leave something you've invested so much time in, but then again, one should never force oneself to stay just because."

ASSAILANT's video for the song "A Day Tomorrow" can be viewed below. The clip was directed by Owe Lingvall of Village Road Film.

"A Day Tomorrow" comes off the group's sophomore album, "Wicked Dream", which was released in March 2008 via Dockyard 1. According to a press release, the CD "is not only more mature than its predecessor but it shows a band that has clearly found its own path in metal, very melodic yet really hard, sprinkled with influences of rock, death metal and thrash."

The band's debut album, "Nemesis Within", was released in 2006 via Dockyard 1.
