German black metal outfit DARK FORTRESS has issued the following update:"We are sorry to announce that Azathoth [vocals] will no longer be a part of DARK FORTRESS. We all came to the decision that we have to go separate ways, due to various — non-musical — reasons. Nevertheless we do wish Azathoth all the best for his future plans in life. Therefore we are currently looking for a new frontman/singer. Serious applications, including audio AND visual (live-videos, pics) material, may be sent either to [email protected] or [email protected] We will keep you updated about any news concerning a new singer. All future live-gigs (Summer Breeze open air, Kaltenbach open-air) are probably going to be canceled. However we will play the gig in Alte Kaserne in Landshut as a farewell gig for Azathoth. This will be your last chance to see us in this lineup, so make sure you don't miss it. Furthermore, the work on our new album and its release date will be postponed." DARK FORTRESS has set "Scum" as the tentative title of its fifth album. Nine songs will be recorded for the effort, including "Cold", "Eudaimony Reversed", "A Sickening World's Protagonist", "Abhorrence Vs. Scum", "Soul Flagellation", "The Anti-Life Doctrine", "Scumshot Orgasm" and "Antiversum". late 2007/early 2008 release via Century Media Records is expected. DARK FORTRESS' fourth full-length CD, "Séance", was released in Europe in January 2006 via Century Media Records.
