Swedish melodic black metallers SIEBENBÜRGEN have reformed and are currently working on material for a new album, tentatively due next year. Vocalist Marcus Ehlin has issued the following statement on the matter:"Greetings fellow metalheads and all other dark creatures that follow our path! "I'm glad to inform you all that SIEBENBÜRGEN has risen from the grave and are back with full force, with a new upcoming album in 2008. "Mr. Bryngelsson [guitarist Richard Bryngelsson] and me have resurrected the band, though in a different shape and a different form, but still under the same black flag that SIEBENBÜRGEN proudly hails under. New members follows our course: Dennis Ekdahl on drums and Johnnie Gunther on keyboard. We are still trying out for lead guitar. "Richard Bryngelsson is, of course, still handling the guitar and I the vocals, but this time I have mantled the bass as well. "The music is in the same vein as before: dark and atmospheric metal. "A new start, a new beginning and a new chapter in the glorious history of SIEBENBÜRGEN. "We hope to see you all on tour soon!" SIEBENBÜRGEN split up in February 2006, explaining at the time that "after 12 years, we sadly don't have the energy and inspiration to take the band any further and it would be wrong to us and to our fans to continue without the passion that SIEBENBÜRGEN deserve." SIEBENBÜRGEN's fifth album, "Darker Designs & Images", was released in 2005 via Napalm Records.
