DEAD TROOPER Announces New Bassist

Norwegian thrashers DEAD TROOPER have announced the addition of bassist Andreas Stenvoll (pictured below) to the group's ranks. The band comments, "Andreas plays with Norwegian stompers BLODSPOR and he is possibly one of the best finger-pickin' thrashmasters out there!!"

DEAD TROOPER last month parted ways with guitarist/vocalist Birger Larsen. A replacement guitarist has not yet been announced.

DEAD TROOPER recently released a live album with a bit of a difference. The eight-track effort, "No Tan En Vivo En Mexico", with artwork by Danny Larsen, was released digitally on March 9, and is inspired by the band's appearance at Mexico's Wild Metal Fest last year which was rained off only one and a half songs into the set. As a result, the group decided to release a live studio recording of what would have been the entire show as a tribute to the fans who took DEAD TROOPER to their hearts after they performed an impromptu set at a local biker bar following the cancelation of the festival.

The members of DEAD TROOPER, who describe their music as "groovy, aggressive thrash metal," are currently on the hunt for a label to release what will be their sophomore full-length album.

"Kiss of the Kannibal", a track from "No Tan En Vivo En Mexico", along with other songs from DEAD TROOPER can be heard using the SoundCloud player below.
