There is a 'new' Swedish metal band around called Avatarium. Are they new? Yes and no. Avantarium is the new band of Leif Edling (Candlemass, Krux). The band will be completed by Marcus Jindell from Evergrey (g), Lars Skold from Tiamat (d), Carl Westholm (k) and singer Jennie-Ann Smith.
They signed a contract with Nuclear Blast and the first 12" will be released already on September 23. The 12" will contain three songs:
- War pigs (Black Sabbath cover)
I'm already curious how the songs will sound.
