BLIND GUARDIAN Guitarist Joins SINBREED

BLIND GUARDIAN guitarist Marcus Siepen has joined the German power metal band SINBREED as a full-time member. Siepen previously performed live with SINBREED at a couple of shows, including the ProgPower USA XIII festival in Atlanta, Georgia.

Commented SINBREED leader Flo Laurin: "To welcome Marcus as a constant member was a obvious step and it just feels right. I'm really looking forward working with him on new meterial for our second album, coming late 2013."

SINBREED has already confirmed several 2013 festival appearances, including those in Germany, Spain and Belgium.
