In other news, GOD recently parted ways with their keyboard player, Filipe 'Lipe" Colombo, due to personal reasons. The band also added a new session guitarist, Nuno M. Silva (ex-OPUS DRACONIS). As a result, GOD was forced to cancel two live concerts that were supposed to take place on June 21 at Club Lua in Lisbon and June 30 at Ritmus Bar in Corroios. The band is searching for a new keyboard player, so interested parties can get in contact with the band at [email protected] (important note: the candidates must be from the area of Sul do Tejo, Barreiro — Portugal). GOD is also in writing mode, preparing the next full-length album that is expected to be released in 2007. New songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Hydromel", "The Tribes Of Frightening Forests" and "Forefathers".
