MINDGRINDER Part Ways With Drummer, Announce Replacement

Norwegian extreme metal band MINDGRINDER, featuring ex-SOURCE OF TIDE drummer/keyboardist Cosmocrator (on bass/vocals), have parted ways with drummer Dan. "His leaving has a mutual understanding within the band and is from the given circumstances the best solution for MINDGRINDER," reads a posting on the group's web site. "At the same time we are proud to welcome Nex (EVILIZER, ex-DISIPLIN) on board the MG-tank as a new permanent batterist! Catch MINDGRINDER, RED HARVEST and ZYKLON live at Kroa i Bø, Telemark, Norway the 5th of March!!"

As previously reported, MINDGRINDER recently completed work on their sophomore album, "Riot Detonator", at Akkerhaugen Lydstudio (EMPEROR, ZYKLON, WINDIR), tentatively due this spring via Nocturnal Art Productions. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "The Rebellion", "Concept of Honesty", "Obligation to Prevail" and "Warhead". A video for the song "Pathetic Submission" was filmed last month.

Commented Cosmocrator: "The material is extreme, brutal and intense, based on the strongest material from the first album, but taking it even further in all ways. The expression is way more dynamic, raw and complete this time!"

MINDGRINDER issued their debut album, "MindTech", last April through Nocturnal Art Productions. The CD was recorded in December 2002 at Akkerhaugen Lydstudio and was originally slated for release through Sound Riot Records — a plan that was eventually abandoned due to the label's "financial problems," according to the group.
