Metal News

Great White is currently in the studio recording a new CD, to be called Back to the Rhythm, feature the original line-up. The CD should see the light of day in August.
Guitarist/Keyboardist Michael Lardie is producing.

Thomas Vikström, former vocalist for Candlemass, has joined Therion. He is replacing Mats Leven. The band explained the change as a desire to shift direction.

Sweden's Manninya Blade have reformed. The obscure thrash band released one album back in 1986, before reforming as Hexenhaus for four albums. Although the original album hasn't weathered the years particularly well, it was considered very avant-garde at the time. Mike Wead (Mercyful Fate/King Diamond) was a member of the band (twice!), although he never recorded with them. The new line-up is: singer Leif Eriksson, guitarists Nicke Johansson and Jerry Rutstrom, bassist Jan Lindberg and drummer Andreas Lindmark.
