ENGEL the Gothenburg, Sweden-based quintet featuring guitarists Marcus Sunesson (THE CROWN) and Niclas Engelin (PASSENGER, ex-GARDENIAN, IN FLAMES), vocalist Mangan Klavborn, drummer Jimmy Olausson (ex-MARIONETTE) and bassist Steve Drennan (AMON AMARTH, LOCUS) recently recorded two songs with Hellmans Drengar, the all-male choir from Gothenburg, Sweden. An audio sample of one of the songs, "In Darkness" (which will be released as a single), can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
ENGEL will play two shows with Hellmans Drengar at Lorensbergsteatern in Gothenburg on September 9 and September 10. The band says, "It will be two evenings where two different worlds collide into one massive, heavy and rocking HELL."
ENGEL's second album, "Threnody", was released in Europe on November 8, 2010 and in the U.S. on January 11, 2011 via Season Of Mist. The CD was issued in Japan on April 20, 2010 via Avex.
ENGEL recorded "Threnody" at PUK studio in Gjerlev, Denmark with producer Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, HIMSA, SICK OF IT ALL).
The band was previously signed to SPV Records which issued ENGEL's debut album, "Absolute Design", in 2007.
ENGEL last year parted ways with drummer Daniel "Mojjo" Moilanen and replaced him with Olausson.
