Earlier this week, Australian thrash metal veterans MORTAL SIN announced that they have recruited Dave Tinelt as their new vocalist. Tinelt replaces longtime MORTAL SIN frontman Mat Maurer, who quit the band last month "for personal reasons and irreconcilable differences."Dave will make his live debut with MORTAL SIN this Saturday, March 17 at Venom in Sydney. The band will follow it up with a show at The Patch in Wollongong on March 31 and a few more dates to be announced. A photo of the new MORTAL SIN lineup can be seen below. Commented the band: "We are so happy to welcome Dave into our family. He's a killer vocalist and an all round top guy. Dave will re-light the fires and inject new adrenalin in us all." The group added, "The next record will pick up from where [last year's] 'Psychology Of Death' left off — it will be harder, faster and all the other clichéd adjectives we can think of, haha. Seriously, we can't wait to record with him." "Psychology Of Death" was released in Europe on November 18, 2011 via NoiseArt Records. The effort includes the group's classic debut LP, "Mayhemic Destruction", as a bonus disc in the limited digipak version. The follow-up to 2007's "An Absence of Faith" was mixed with producer/engineer Darren "jENK" Jenkins and marks the recording debut of guitarist Ryan Huthnance, who replaced Mick Sultana. Once hailed as the next METALLICA, MORTAL SIN have become legends in their home country Australia, having been inducted into the Kerrang! Heavy Metal Hall of Fame in 2005 and being the only Australian band to have played with the big five of thrash — METALLICA, SLAYER, ANTHRAX, MEGADETH and TESTAMENT — on tours in Australia and overseas.
