ELVENKING Comment On Singer DAMNAGORAS' Return To The Fold

Italian "pagan metal" band ELVENKING have issued a statement confirming that they have been rejoined by singer Damnagoras.

Damnagoras left the band in August 2002 due to "health reasons" and was replaced by Kleid.

Commented ELVENKING: "After the long wait, we can officially confirm Damnagoras' return in the band. The singer who left ELVENKING two years ago has joined his fellows back in order to re-create the original heathen spirit and essence that bound every single member to each other. The band, after the release of their last album 'Wyrd' (recorded with a different singer, Kleid) entered a difficult period due to various reasons related to the musical direction to take, personal relations, business affairs, etc. Put in front of this situation, there was no choice for ELVENKING to keep on expressing themselves still being faithful to what the band was born for. Now that the original line-up is still together, things are going great and the songwriting process for the third album has been nearly completed!

"After the release of 'Wyrd' the contract between ELVENKING and AFM Records was about to end, but following the amazing results both for sales and critcs of the two albums, we're happy to announce that the band and AFM will keep on working together also for the next one!"

The follow-up to 2001's "Heathenreel", "Wyrd" was recorded in three different studios, including the Gernhart facility in Siegburg, Germany and was mixed in December at House Of Music in Stuttgart, Germany with producer Achim Kohler (PRIMAL FEAR, BRAINSTORM). The cover artwork was painted by pagan artist Duncan Storr, who has previously worked with SKYCLAD and RAGE, among others.
