M.A.N Announces Lineup Changes, Prepares To Enter Studio

M.A.N ("Massive Audio Nerve") — the Swedish metal-hardcore-progressive four-piece featuring TRANSPORT LEAGUE/ex-MNEMIC frontman Tony Jelencovich — has parted ways with guitarist Nils Olsson and drummer Andreas Engberg and has replaced them with Mark Black (ex-DREAM EVIL, DRAGONLORD) on and Adde Larsson (BLACK CANDY STORE, ex-ENGEL, URBANDUX), respectively.

M.A.N will enter IF Studios, the IN FLAMES-owned facility in Gothenburg, Sweden, in February 2012 with producer Roberto Laghi (IN FLAMES, SONIC SYNDICATE, HARDCORE SUPERSTAR, LOK) to begin recording its fourth album, "Cancer Vulgaris". 12 songs will be recorded for the effort, including "Hoax", "This Generation", "Smack Down", "Young Insect", "Death Song", "Grace Of Time", "Lights Out", "Man Slaughter", "Cryosync" and "Sahara".

M.A.N's third album, "Massive Audio Nerve", was released on March 26, 2010 via the German label Tiefdruck Musik. The CD was recorded at Grand Recordings in Gothenburg, Sweden with engineer Svein Jensen and was mixed by Ulrich Wild, who has previously worked with WHITE ZOMBIE, STAIND, STATIC-X, DEFTONES, PANTERA and LIMP BIZKIT, among others. The mastering was handled by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Mastering in Encino, California.
