DARK MOOR Announce New Drummer, Prepare To Record

Madrid, Spain-based power metallers DARK MOOR have announced the addition of drummer Andy C. to the group's ranks. Andy is 25 years old and has previously played in several Spanish bands, including WORMED.

DARK MOOR's self-titled fourth full-length album will be recorded during August at New Sin StudiosItaly with producer Luigi Stefanini. The new album will mark the recording debut with the band of new singer Alfred Romero and second guitarist Jose Garrido. Also featured on the CD will be guest vocalist Beatriz Albert, a "fantastic" singer who will record background vocals for the entire album and lead vocals in one song. Additional guest appearances are expected from the Valcavasian choir, which previously appeared on the group's "The Gates of Oblivion" album, and the pianist Isabel García.

"Dark Moor" is tentatively due in early 2004 through Arise Records. A single containing one album cut and two non-album tracks will surface in October.

DARK MOOR's last release was the "Between Light and Darkness" EP, which contained four newly-recorded tracks and four previously-unreleased numbers ("Dies Irae" (orchestral version), "The Mistery Of Goddess", "The Shadow Of The Nile" and "The Fall Of Melniboné"). The collection, which marked the band's first effort without keyboardist Robert Peña de Camus, was issued in April through Arise Records.
