Former MELDRUM Singer Releases 'The M in S&M' Video

Former MELDRUM frontwoman Moa Holmsten has issued the following update:

"I recorded a video for the piano version of the song 'The M in S&M', done by the talented man Mr. Erik Mossnelid, who's also playing piano on this song. The video was recorded a cold day early spring 2009 at Renskalla, a well-hidden place in the darkest woods of Sweden, and [it] turned out pretty good!

"This song is the third track from my EP, 'All Blade No Handle', that can be bought at iTunes or [via] PayPal. Also coming soon is my debut full-length album, 'Do You Want Me Death?' and a new video for the song 'Crazy' off that album is also in the works. Can't wait..."

The above-mentioned video for the piano version of the song "The M in S&M" can be viewed below.

Holmsten will release her full-length solo debut, "Do You Want Me Death?", in October via the U.S.-based record label Fill In The Blank Records. According to Moa, Fill In The Blank is run by "two extraordinary people who still believe in real music and an artist's creative freedom, something I cherish the most out of people taking care of my business." The CD will feature guest appearances by Conny Nimmersjö (BOB HUND, THÅSTRÖM) and Mattias Petersson.

Moa announced her departure from MELDRUM early last year, explaining that she "lost the fire, the dedication and the joy. My heart was not in it anymore. A heart, the only heart, I had to be honest to or I couldn't live with myself."

Moa's former MELDRUM bandmate and group leader, guitarist Michelle Meldrum, passed away on May 21, 2008 as a result of a cystic growth on her brain that had restricted oxygen and blood flow to her brain, rendering her braindead.
