DEMONICAL Parts Ways With Guitarist

Swedish death metallers DEMONICAL have issued the following update:

"As a lot of people have asked us during the past months what's up with the DEMONICAL lineup, we feel that it is time to sort things out.

"Since February Pablo Magallanes [guitar] is no longer a member of DEMONICAL. Only about two months after he officially joined the band we had to part ways due to him moving back to South America and as a result of this, some of the shows during the spring were done as four-piece.

"The timing of Pablo's departure was not the best as Johan [Jansson, guitar] had already last autumn notified us that because of personal reasons he needs to take some time off from all touring activities during this summer. However, Johan will be back again after the summer and everything will be back to normal.

"We have not yet decided and feel no rush in deciding what to do with the vacant guitarist slot. We will continue as a five-piece live — that's for sure — but in which form (full-time or session member) is yet to be decided.

"As of now, we have Daniel Gustavsson and Antti Kurvinen with us to fill in on guitars and so far everything has worked out incredible well.

"The shows we have done this spring have been awesome - actually some of the best shows we have ever done — and we are all very much looking forward to the exciting festivals and club battles that we have ahead of us."

DEMONICAL's third album, "Death Infernal", was released in April 2011 via Germany's Cyclone Empire Records. The CD was recorded, mixed and mastered at Necromorbus Studio (WATAIN, UNANIMATED, DESTRÖYER 666) in Alvik, Sweden under the watchful eye of DEMONICAL frontman Sverker Widgren. Other individuals taking part in the creation of "Death Infernal" were Costin Chioreanu of Twilight 13 Media and photographer Soile Siirtola.
