SLOWMOTION APOCALYPSE Parts Ways With Guitarist, Announces Replacement

Italian metallers SLOWMOTION APOCALYPSE have parted ways with guitarist Ivan Odorico.

Commented Ivan: "It's been a hard but unavoidable decision. The band is going to change its style a little and it's something I can't see myself in. I'm sure my departure will help them do well as far as the songwriting is concerned. I'd like to send my greetings to all those who followed us and supported us up to now."

The group's new lead guitarist is Manuel "Sean" Giannella (DAYSHINE RISING). According to SLOWMOTION APOCALYPSE, "he is a very talented guitar player and he is the perfect consolidating link between what we have recorded until today and the new stuff we're going to release in the future."

A photo of the band's new lineup can be viewed below (Manuel "Sean" Giannella is second from left).

SLOWMOTION APOCALYPSE released its second album, "Obsidian", in April 2007 via Scarlet Records. Recorded by Riccardo Pasini (EPHEL DUATH, THE SECRET, REPRISAL) at Studio 73 and by Ettore Rigotti (DISARMONIA MUNDI) at dB Studio and mixed and produced by Ettore Rigotti, the CD features guest vocals by the mighty Tomas Lindberg (ex-AT THE GATES, THE GREAT DECEIVER), Gianluca "GL" Perotti (ex-EXTREMA) and Claudio Ravinale (DISARMONIA MUNDI).
