Czech Republic's SEBASTIEN Taps CRADLE OF FILTH Drummer For New Album

Czech Republic-based metallers SEBASTIEN will enter Grapow Studios in Slovakia on February 11 with producer Roland Grapow (MASTERPLAN, ex-HELLOWEEN guitarist) to begin recording their sophomore album, "Dark Chambers of Déja Vu" for a late 2013 release. The band states: "All lyrics are already written (as well as on the 'Tears Of White Roses' album) by our friend and a great lyric writer, Jan Petricko! The cover artwork and all new design is [being created] right now by Dis-Art Design from Slovakia."

SEBASTIEN parted ways with drummer Radek Rain at the end of last year and has enlisted Martin "Marthus" Škaroupka (CRADLE OF FILTH, MASTERPLAN, INNER FEAR) to lay down the drum tracks on the new CD.

SEBASTIEN's current recording lineup:

George Rain – Vocals, Guitar
Andy Mons - Guitars
Petri Skalainen - Bass
Pavel "Dvorkys" Dvorak - Keyboards
Martin "Marthus" Škaroupka - Drums

Video footage of SEBASTIEN's performance at the Masters Of Rock festival — with special guest appearances by Apollo Papathanasio (FIREWIND), Roland Grapow and Katie Joanne (SIREN'S CRY) — can be seen below.
