CRADLE OF FILTH Drummer's New Band To Support THE HAUNTED In London

London-based metal band NEEDLEYE, featuring CRADLE OF FILTH drummer Adrian Erlandsson (ex-AT THE GATES, THE HAUNTED), will support Erlandsson's former band THE HAUNTED on November 1 at The Underworld in London.

Erlandsson played on THE HAUNTED's classic self-titled debut album, which came out in 1998 on Earache Records.

NEEDLEYE recently completed work on its new album, "Ode to None", at Hateswitch Inc. in London's Camden Town for a late 2006 release. The CD, which also features guest vocals from ex-MATTER vocalist and BOWLRIDER bassist Dom Lawson, contains "ten tracks of furious, genre-defying metal that redefines the NEEDLEYE sound and is set to establish them within the metal elite," according to a press release. "Ode to None" also features the skills of multi-talented instrumentalist Matt Hart of TEAR MY STRINGS, who adds a unique classical finale to the unrelenting fury of "This Machine" with his 250-year old, hand-built viola, which is worth a reported £20,000.

NEEDLEYE is the brainchild of Duncan Wilkinson (vocals) and also includes Mike Fletcher and James Howard on guitars, and Ray Holroyd on bass.
