Italian/Danish power-thrash metal act CHAOSWAVE has issued the following update:"As many of you know, for some time now our good friend Michele Mura has been the session bass player of CHAOSWAVE. After many months together with many shows and smaller tours, we all figured it was about time that Michele joined the band. So here's a big warm welcome to Michele from the rest of CHAOSWAVE." CHAOSWAVE released its new album, "Dead Eye Dreaming", in Europe and Japan on March 6 via Silverwolf/SPV. According to the band, "the European and Japanese version [are] slightly different from the American version. Most importantly, it contains a different bonus track. Where the American CD version had a hidden track (cover song of 'No Limit'), the European/Japanese release includes a previously unreleased CHAOSWAVE song called 'From the Stare to the Storm'. This track was originally recorded as bonus for the 2005 debut album, but never was released." CHAOSWAVE recently filmed a video for the song "10 Years of Denial" at a former mine site in Italy with Dutch director Richard Spierings (who has previously worked with ANOTHER MESSIAH). "Dead Eye Dreaming" was mixed last year by Andy La Rocque (KING DIAMOND) and features a special guest appearance by Steve Smyth, former guitarist of NEVERMORE and TESTAMENT. Commented Smyth: "I first heard CHAOSWAVE a few years ago while on tour with NEVERMORE, and absolutely loved that they had a heavy, progressive metal sound, combined with a male-female vocal duo that sound huge, and very unique together. Everyone in this band is a top-notch musician! I am very pleased to have been asked and contributed solos to the band's new album, which I believe is sure to snap many ears in their direction!"
