ATARGATIS Seeks Lead Guitarist

German dark/symphonic gothic metal band ATARGATIS has issued the following update:

"As of today, we are searching for an ambitious and commited lead guitarist.

"Our present guitarist Azmo will stay with ATARGATIS only until the end of the year for time and professional reasons as he wants to withdraw from the semi-professional sector and to consecrate himself to his side-projects. So, if you are interested in the job, you should immediately contact us: [email protected] . [We are located in Regensburg (Germany).]"

ATARGATIS will release its new album, "Nova", on November 16 via Massacre Records. The CD was recorded and produced at the Helion Studios (DARKSEED, EQUILIBRIUM) in Munich, Germany. The complete layout and design was created by Katja Piolka (PRIMAL FEAR, RAGE, LEAVES' EYES, DESTRUCTION). In addition to the cover design, the band worked with Katja Piolka on their newest promo pictures.

"Nova" contains ten songs, including a cover of ARMY OF LOVERS' "Crucified". The album includes a guest appearance by Matthias Hechler (Matze) from the German gothic metal heroes CREMATORY. The CD will also be available in digipack format (including two exclusive bonus tracks).
