After 17 years with German gothic metallers CREMATORY, guitarist Matze decided to leave the band in early 2015 to concentrate on his private life and to explore new musical horizons. He has since been replaced by two musicians: Tosse Basler, who has been in the music business for over 30 years and has played in bands like POISON ASP, FORTY SHADES, SCAPEGOAT, AVALANCHE and EVOLUTION, on rhythm guitar and clean vocals; and Rolf Munkes, who also has over 30 years of experience in the business, on lead guitar. Rolf is also a producer at his Empire Studios, were he has worked with such acts as MAJESTY, Tony Martin (ex-BLACK SABBATH), Neil Murray (ex-WHITESNAKE, Gary Moore), Don Airey (DEEP PURPLE) and Doogie White (MICHAEL SCHENKER'S TEMPLE OF ROCK).CREMATORY will hit Kohlekeller Studio in September to record its new album with producer Kristian Bonifer. A spring 2016 release is expected. CREMATORY's latest album, "Antiserum", came out in March 2014 in North America and February 2014 in Europe via Steamhammer/SPV. The effort was released as a deluxe box set (including a flag, patch, poster, sticker, postcard), digipak (including two bonus tracks), 2LP gatefold colored vinyl version (including two bonus tracks), standard version and download.
