Excitement is an enormous understatement for what I'm feeling right now

The name of the coming album will be Scarsick, and the band is focusing on the songs right now, to be recorded during the coming months. Daniel describes the albums as much more band oriented and down to the core. Threatening and disturbing. The picture above is the only part of the cover art that has been revealed so far. Now all we can do is wait...

There has been a lot of discussions on forums and by e-mail since the announcement that Kristoffer will no longer be part of the band, so we thought we might clear a few things out.

First of all, we are very sad to see Kristoffer go of course. Some fans have described this as a catastrophy beyond words, others as a "so-what" event. It is of course neither - it is what we would like to label "a big deal" - but the most important thing to remember is that this was a band decision, with focus on the future of the band.

We have decided not to stress this, we will take all the time needed to find the perfect bass player. There is no replacement bass player under consideration as of yet, but since so many bass players have already started contacting us, we might as well make clear what is needed for this task, to save some people the trouble:

The premises:
1. You are a very, very good bass player that masters slapping/tapping/finger/pick on both fretted and fretless 6-string basses.
2. You are a fast learner with a very good ear.
3. You have a good voice with a decent range and are used to singing harmonies.
4. You are driven and responsible and can learn the earlier albums basically on your own.
5. You live in Sweden, or maybe you are so rich that you can take a private jet there two or three times a week. In any case, there will basically be rehearsals that often, and you need to be able to be there somehow.
6. You are a nice girl or a boy of say 20-35 that loves music in many forms.
7. You don't do drugs, and you are very restrictive with alcohol (never a drop before a show).

The bonuses:
8. You feel at home on stage and can spend tons of energy without having your playing suffer.
9. You have a driver's license.
10. You take an interest in world issues and politics. You probably think that Gandhi's march for salt or his burning of passports were braver political actions than Bush's war on terror.
11. You look cool.

So, is this you, or anyone you know? In that case, you are welcome to introduce yourself to us, preferrably with some photos and sound samples. As already mentioned, we are in the process of recording the next album and we will most likely not bring a new member in before this album is done. However, we said the same thing back in 1998 but then we found Johan, so you never know...

Damit! I think I qualify for maybe half of one of those things.
