Former DRAIN STH drummer Martina Axén, who more recently spent time as the lead singer for SUPERFIX (the aborted project also featuring former DRAIN STH bassist Anna Kjellberg) and SNAKE RIVER CONSPIRACY, has posted the demo version of a new solo track, "Ghost of Me", on her MySpace page. The song, which features a guest appearance by former COAL CHAMBER bassist Nadja Peulen, can be heard at this location.
Commented Martina: "A few months ago, I went in the studio to record one of my songs called 'Ghost of Me' that had been laying around way too long. Had some really great and talented friends playing on it. Nadja from COAL CHAMBER played bass, Dean Dichoso played guitar and drums on it, and I did some sort of yelling on top of it. We kept an old lead/solo that China [SINISSTAR, SUPERFIX] had played long ago on the very first demo version of the song."
Axén has spent most of the last two years working on material for a possible solo album, which is expected to include some of the songs that were originally intended for SUPERFIX.
DRAIN STH's final album, 1999's "Freaks of Nature", was noted for the inclusion of the track "Black", co-written by and featuring lead guitar from BLACK SABBATH's Tony Iommi (who has been romantically involved with DRAIN STH's ex-singer Maria Sjöholm for most of the past decade although it remains unclear if the pair ever officially married).
