MELDRUM, the Swedish/American band led by former PHANTOM BLUE guitarist Michelle Meldrum (wife of EUROPE axeman John Norum), are currently in the studio with producer Toby Wright (ALICE IN CHAINS, KORN, METALLICA, SLAYER, PRIMUS, JERRY CANTRELL, SEVENDUST) recording more material for the follow-up to their debut album, "Loaded Mental Cannon". The band supported MOTÖRHEAD on a Scandinavian tour late last year as well as on MOTÖRHEAD's recent West Coast run of dates and have toured both the U.S. and Europe with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY. In addition, MELDRUM singer Moa Holmsten recently recorded some guest vocals for MOTÖRHEAD frontman Lemmy Kilmister's upcoming solo album. The CD, tentatively titled "Lemmy & Friends", will reportedly feature collaborations with Dave Grohl (FOO FIGHTERS, ex-NIRVANA), REVEREND HORTON HEAT, THE DAMNED and SKEW SISKIN.
Holmsten joined MOTÖRHEAD onstage for a rendition of "Killed by Death" during the band's 30th anniversary DVD shoot at the Astoria in London, U.K. on June 16, 2005. The day before, Moa was on the set when MOTÖRHEAD shot the video for their "Whorehouse Blues" single and appeared in the clip together with the band "among some fine-looking women and 'worldwide celebrities,'" according to a posting on MELDRUM's web site.
Currently unsigned, MELDRUM released their debut album, "Loaded Mental Cannon", in 2001 via Record Heaven.
