CRYSTAL EYES Rejoined By Guitarist NICLAS KARLSSON

Swedish metallers CRYSTAL EYES have issued the following update:

"Paul [guitarist Pål Petterson] is out of the band and we're ready for another chapter. We're now extremely happy to welcome back Niclas Karlsson and are looking forward to once again share the path of heavy metal with this great guitarist.

"If you know your CRYSTAL EYES history, you know that Niclas started the band with Mikael [Dahl, guitar] in 1992, quit the band after short break in 1995, got back between 2006-2007 and has played with Mikael in the JUDAS PRIEST tribute band DEFENDERS OF THE FAITH since the dawn of time."

In other news, CRYSTAL EYES is featured in "Metal Munchers - The Festival Edition", a cook book and a book about some of Sweden's best rock bands today, including favorite dishes, promotional pictures and much more. It's only available in Swedish but an English edition will follow.

CRYSTAL EYES in 2009 parted ways with Danish singer Søren Nico Adamsen (ARTILLERY) and decided to carry on as a four-piece band, with Mikael Dahl (guitar) handling lead vocals.

CRYSTAL EYES' last album, "Chained", was released in November 2008 via Metal Heaven Records. The CD's cover artwork was created by Carl-André Beckston (a.k.a. Monowasp). The album was mixed at Studio Fredman with acclaimed producer Fredrik Nordström (DIMMU BORGIR, IN FLAMES, HAMMERFALL).
