CHARON Guitarist Forced To Sit Out Moscow Show

Guitarist Lauri Tuohimaa of Finnish gothic metallers CHARON was hospitalized this Christmas due to a blood clot. As a result, Lauri is unable to travel at this time and he's currently recovering at home. For this the reason, Lauri cannot take part in the band's New Year's Eve show at Club Relax in Moscow, Russia. The group says, "Luckily we were able to find in a very short time a Russian guitarist who will [stand in for] Lauri at this special occasion."

CHARON has finished writing 15 songs for a new album which the band expects to record early next year for a 2009 release. According to the group, the new tracks "pretty much all kick ass."

Check out photos from the writing sessions at this location.

Video footage of CHARON performing a new song at Myötätuulirock 2008 in Hakunila, Vantaa, Finland on June 14, 2008 can be viewed below.

CHARON's latest CD, "Songs for the Sinners", debuted on Finland's national album chart at position No. 6 back in September 2005. The follow-up to 2003's "The Dying Daylights" was recorded at Finnvox Studios in Helsinki with producer Mikko Karmila.
