Ex-ONWARD Guitarist's WAXEN Project Becomes Full-Time Band

Former DARKEN/ONWARD guitarist Toby Knapp has issued the following update on his WAXEN black metal project (formerly known as UNIT 100):

"I've turned my WAXEN project into a full-time band, recruiting members Max Livingston (21) on bass as well as 17-year-old drum prodigy Jeramy Matheson. The band is now in the pre-production stage for a five-song EP, entitled 'Redemption of the Horns'. WAXEN have no plans for performing in their hometown (Sheridan, Wyoming). However, Montana and Colorado are possibilities."

As previously reported, Knapp recently signed a deal with Metalbolic Records for the release of WAXEN's debut album. The CD, entitled "Fumaroth", consists of recordings that were completed for WAXEN's 2004 demo and includes the track "Splendid Impure Light", which can currently be sampled on Metalbolic's MySpace.com page.

Knapp last year issued an instrumental album, entitled "Polarizing Lines". He also recently contributed lead guitar work to the split CD featuring the one-man death metal band SEEKING OBSCURE and UNBURIED.
