LOKURAH Parts Ways With Bassist, Announces Replacement

French metal/hardcore act LOKURAH has issued the following update:

"Due to a lack of availability, LOKURAH decided to part of Jiu [former NO RETURN bassist Olivier 'Jiu' Scemana], our bassist since January 2007. We thank him for everything he has brought to the band and wish him good luck for all his musical projects. LOKURAH is glad to welcome Mathieu in the band! He plays guitar in LOCK 'T A WAY, already played bass for two shows with us in 2006, and he is now our former live sound engineer (Ronan will now follow the band)."

LOKURAH released its debut album, "When the End Comes", in March via Thundering Records/Pervade Productions. The CD was recorded at Conkrete Studio (JENX, WARATTAH, OTARGOS, INSIDE CONFLICT) and is the follow-up to the band's three-song mini-CD, which came out in 2005.

According to a press release, LOKURAH plays "uncompromising and brutal music" with influences from such acts as MACHINE HEAD, HATEBREED and SLAYER.
