Former PARADISE LOST Drummer To Appear On CREATION'S TEARS Debut

Former PARADISE LOST/MARSHALL LAW drummer Lee Morris will make his return to the heavier end of the musical spectrum when he appears on the debut album, "Methods To End It All", from Northern Ireland's melodic melancholy metallers CREATION'S TEARS. The CD is being recorded with producers Jens Bogren and David Castillo (OPETH, KATATONIA, AMON AMARTH, SOILWORK) for a spring release.

Commented CREATION'S TEARS frontman Brian "Eddie" Reynolds: "For me, Lee Morris was responsible for bringing a whole new dynamic to PARADISE LOST's sound on 'Draconian Times' on songs like 'The Last Time' and 'Forever Failure', but especially on tracks like 'Enchantment' and 'Shadowkings', where he had a unique sound, so we're excited about what he's going to bring to the table within CREATION'S TEARS."

Following his departure from PARADISE LOST in 2004, the sticksman — who appeared on such classics as PARADISE LOST's "Draconian Times" and "One Second" — has been involved in teaching drums to aspiring young musicians as well as keeping active on the session circuit.

Stated Lee Morris: "When I was first contacted by CREATION'S TEARS about playing on their album, I'll be honest and say that I didn't really have any great desire to re-visit this style of playing again, as after nearly a decade of touring and recording with PARADISE LOST, I'd kinda just about exhausted my enthusiasm for this scene. However, after hearing this band's demos and being really impressed by the new fresh ideas they had, plus their incredible ambition, it became a bit of a no-brainer, really, on my involvement on this record.

"I am looking forward to tracking the drums with the band! I think CREATION'S TEARS will certainly impress quite a few people when this album is released."

When quizzed on influences and musical direction, Reynolds stated, "We draw influences from bands as diverse as HIM and ANATHEMA to METALLICA and IN FLAMES, but I like to think of CREATION'S TEARS more as music for the emotionally disturbed, the suicidal, and those who have been oppressed by the female of the species."
