CRADLE OF FILTH bassist Dave Pybus has laid down bass tracks for the upcoming debut album from ANGTORIA, the new Swedish/British orchestral/metal band formed by female singer Sarah Jezebel Deva (CRADLE OF FILTH, THERION, MORTIIS), composer Chris Rehn (ABYSSOS) and Tommy Rehn (MOAHNI MOAHNA).
Commented Sarah Jezebel Deva: "With a few technical hitchs, but things running to plan, we have finally recorded the bass! My search for a bassist wasn't hard. I had two in mind, equally as talented and equally as amazing! Ryan Sinn from THE DISTILLERS and Dave Pybus from CRADLE OF FILTH/Six Six Six Records.
"Due to budget and time, Dave did the dirty job. It made sense because he doesnt live far from me. Personally it's a shame we couldn't have had two bass players! The tracks were recorded at Springvale Recording Studios by Mark Harwood, who is famous for various CRADLE OF FILTH work and EXTREME NOISE TERROR, amongst others.
"Finally, a dream come true for me! A song with Aaron [Stainthorpe] from MY DYING BRIDE. I've waited years to sing with his immaculate voice! It's at last happened. No title for the track as of yet but the lyrics were written by the both of us."
ANGTORIA's debut album, "God Has A Plan For Us All", is tentatively scheduled for release in April 2006 via Listenable Records. To help out with engineering the drums, the band have hired Daniel Bergstrand, who has previously worked with such acts as IN FLAMES, SOILWORK, MESHUGGAH, DEVIN TOWNSEND, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD and BEHEMOTH. A full-length MP3 of the ANGTORIA demo track "Six Feet Under's Not Deep Enough" has been made available for download at Angtoria.com. Other songtitles expected to appear on the upcoming CD include "Confide In Me" (KYLIE MINOGUE cover), "Little Girl", "Deity Of Disgust" and "I Cried Alone".
