KEEP OF KALESSIN recently entered the studio to begin recording their new album, "Armada", tentatively due in September via the Norwegian label Tabu Recordings, a division of Tuba Records. Vyl will be playing the drums on the album and a new bass player, Wizziac, will be introduced. MAYHEM singer Attila Chisar will be doing some additional vocals, but he will not be the frontman anymore. The band will try out different vocalists in the studio to find the one who matches the music best. The group's complete lineup will be revealed when the recording sessions are completed.

KEEP OF KALESSIN's most recent mini-album, "Reclaim", was released in December 2003 through FaceFront Records. The group's first release since 1999's "Agnen: A Journey through the Dark" (Avantgarde), "Reclaim" has been described as a new milestone in Norwegian black metal by the Norwegian press. "Reclaim" is available in the U.S. through The End mail-order.
