Swedish/Danish metallers CRYSTAL EYES have announced the addition of guitarist Pål Petterson to the group's ranks. "Pål is 41 years old and lives just five minutes from our studio/rehearsal room in Borås," the band writes. "He's a great guitarist with the right attitude, personality and humor and fits perfect into the band's chemistry. It's somehow strange that we really should have known him long ago since he have played with friends to the band and even previous members of CRYSTAL EYES. There's no use describing his guitar playing more then classic Eighties heavy metal style perfectly made for CRYSTAL EYES."CRYSTAL EYES guitarist Mikael Dahl has written a number of new songs for inclusion on the group's next album, which is tentatively scheduled to be recorded before the end of the year. "The band will spend the summer rehearsing and completing the new material," reads a posting on the group's web site. CRYSTAL EYES's fifth album, "Dead City Dreaming", was released last November. The CD was recorded at Crystal Sounds studio with producer Fredrik Nordström.
