ENGEL Parts Ways With Singer

Swedish metallers ENGEL have parted ways with singer Magnus "Mangan" Klavborn.

Commented the band: "We are sad to say that Magnus will not be a member of ENGEL anymore. We had a really good run and we will miss him very much.

"There is no hard feelings between ENGEL and Magnus and we parted ways as friends, carrying with us a lot of good times and awesome memories. However, this will not affect the coming shows, since our good friend Lenne (ex-TWELVESTEP) steps up to the plate once again and fills in for Magnus during the 'Blood Of Saints Over Sweden' tour.

"Come out to the shows and support ENGEL and Lenne by banging your head on the frontline!"

Added Klavborn: “So this is it, my time in ENGEL is over.

"I'm not going to rant about the who's and why's, just say goodbye.

"I have had a lot of good times and I am sad to leave it behind, but that's how it goes sometimes. It's not a farewell forever; I'm not going to quit music.

"I'm going to miss the boys on stage, the people in the crowd and all the good friends I have met on the road.

"To the boys on stage: Good luck with all future adventures.

"To the crowd: Stay true, I will miss you.

"And to the 'roadsters'. See you again soon."

ENGEL's new album, "Blood Of Saints", entered the official chart in Sweden at position No. 60. Released on May 18 via Season Of Mist, the CD was recorded at Antfarm studios in Aabyhøj, Denmark. According to the group, the album is "a good mixture between both [previous ENGEL efforts] 'Threnody' [2010] and 'Absolute Design' [2007], but with some new angles as well! If you liked 'Threnody', you will LOVE 'Blood Of Saints'!"

ENGEL features guitarists Marcus Sunesson (THE CROWN) and Niclas Engelin (PASSENGER, GARDENIAN, IN FLAMES), drummer Jimmy Olausson (ex-MARIONETTE) and bassist Steve Drennan (LOCUS).
