Former YNGWIE MALMSTEEN Frontman To Sing On Debut KRUX CD

Sweden's KRUX, the brainchild of CANDLEMASS mainman Leif Edling, have enlisted former YNGWIE MALMSTEEN/ABSTRAKT ALGEBRA frontman Mats Levén to handle the vocal duties on their debut album, which is currently being recorded at Dog Pound studios with producer/engineer Nicko Elgstrand for a late 2002 release through Mascot Records. The guitar leads on the CD, which features ENTOMBED drummer Peter Stjärnvind and ENTOMBED bassist Jörgen Sandström (on rhythm guitar), will reportedly be performed by Elgstrand (TERRA FIRMA) and Fredrik Åkesson (TALISMAN), while it is still hoped that ARCH ENEMY/SPIRITUAL BEGGARS guitarist Michael Amott will contribute to the effort before the recording sessions are completed later this month.

As previously reported, the full track listing for the album will be as follows:

01. Black Room
02. Omfalos
03. Sibiria
04. Popocatépetl
05. The Republic Pluto
06. Lunochod
07. Krux
08. Nimis
09. Evel Rifaz
10. Enigma EZB
