Swedish black metal band VANMAKT has issued the following update:
"Here are some updates regarding our second album, 'Ad Luciferi Regnum' (rough translation: To the Kingdom of Lucifer). As we have announced before, the album will be recorded by Bjrn Lindgren at EPM Studios during June/July 2008.
"The album will be mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studio (WATAIN, SETHERIAL, etc) and hopefully to be released during this winter.
"A new lineup is also being announced and VANMAKT has decided to go separate ways with Aamoth and Gral due to musical differences. Their spots will be filled by M. Wohlfart (YGGDRASIL, NAE'BLIS) and Liedheim (NIDRIKE).
"At this moment, we will not play any live gigs since Liedheim is just filling the drum spot for this album, but we hope to find a live drummer during the autumn since we have been asked to join a European tour in March 2009. So, if there are any good and fast drummers out there, feel free to contact us for more information!
"Our line-up for 'Ad Luciferi Regnum' will be as follows: M. Svensson (screams & guitars), V. Dahlgren (bass), M. Wohlfart (guitars), Liedheim (drums)."
VANMAKT recently inked a new deal with Pulverised Records.
The band's debut album, "Vredskapta Mrkersagor", features guest appearances by Jonas Renvaktar (SPAWN OF POSSESSION) on the song entitled "Open the Gates" and Hebbe from SKALD on the track "En Mardrm, En Strid, Ett Helvete". VANMAKT also filmed a video for the song "My Darkest Hate", which can be viewed below.
