Germany's SOLEMNITY has announced the addition of guitarists Robin Fischer (ex-HAGGARD, RED TO GREY) and Frank Pané (ex-VALLEY'S EVE, RED TO GREY, BURN) to the group's ranks. The band has written more than two dozen songs for its new album, which it plans on recording this summer.SOLEMNITY's limited-edition 10-inch vinyl containing a classical version of BATHORY's "One Rode to Asa Bay" backed with a cover of LIZZY BORDEN's "There will be Blood Tonight" was released in January. SOLEMNITY recorded "One Rode to Asa Bay" with the help of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra at the Ulmer Münster Cathedral in Ulm, Germany, which is said to be the highest Catholic church on earth. "This was the place to call on the ancient Gods and show Quorthon and all the Ases in Valhalla that they triumphed at last," the band said in a statement. "You will hear the original medieval church organ, string quartets, female and male choirs, timpanis, mouthdrums and things you can't imagine. All LIVE from the Ulmer Münster on 64-tracks!!" SOLEMNITY's third album, "Shockwave of Steel", was released in 2005. An EP, entitled "Another Bloody Sabbath", followed in April 2006.
