ATARGATIS recently announced the addition of guitarist Maximilian Schulz to the group's ranks. Schulz joins the band as the replacement for Ernst "Azmo" Wurdak, who left ATARGATIS at the end of last year in order to return, in his words, to "no-compromise underground music."

ATARGATIS' latest CD, "Nova", features a guest appearance by Matthias Hechler (Matze) from the German gothic metal heroes CREMATORY.

Released 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 CD is also available in digipack format (including two exclusive bonus tracks).
