UNIVERSUM: New Song Posted Online

A rough-mix version of a new song from Australian melodic death metallers UNIVERSUM, "Sum Of The Universe", can be streamed in the YouTube clip below. The track features guest vocals from Christian Älvestam (SCAR SYMMETRY, SOLUTION .45) along with lead solos from both NIGHTRAGE axemen Marios Iliopoulos and Olof Mörck. According to the band, "it's one of the [upcoming] album's more melodic tracks and will be even more ballsy once Jens Bogren [OPETH, SOILWORK, AMON AMARTH, KATATONIA] is finished [mixing and mastering] it [at Sweden's Fascination Street Studios]!"

"Sum Of The Universe" comes off UNIVERSUM's sophomore album, "Mortuus Machina", which is tentatively due in early 2011. The follow-up to 2008's "Leto Destinatus" will feature guest appearances by the following musicians:

* Christian Älvestam (SCAR SYMMETRY, SOLUTION .45)
* Marios Iliopoulos (NIGHTRAGE)
* Olof Mörck (NIGHTRAGE, DRAGONLAND, AMARANTHE)
* Ola Frenning (SOILWORK)
* Tuomas "Tommy" Tuovinen (MYGRAIN)
* Paul Wardingham

In the two years since the release of "Leto Destinatus", UNIVERSUM made a major impact both in Australia and internationally and has received widespread acclaim from the media and its ever-growing legion of fans. The success of the debut album, together with live performances alongside international big guns DRAGONFORCE (Australian national tour) and CRADLE OF FILTH, a string of endorsements and a very well received video clip has seen UNIVERSUM quickly become regarded as one of Australia's premier melodic death metal acts.
