CRYONIC TEMPLE Parts Ways With Drummer, Seeks Replacement

October 5, 2009

Swedish heavy metal band CRYONIC TEMPLE has issued the following update:

"CRYONIC TEMPLE is looking for a new drummer! Hans Karlin has decided to leave the band cause he feels that the time he can put into the band isn't enough.

"As soon as the spot is filled by a new drummer, a big farewell party in Hans' honor is going to take place!

"If you want to try out for the band just drop a mail to [email protected]"

"Standing Tall", the latest video from CRYONIC TEMPLE, can be viewed below. The song comes off the group's most recent album, "Immortal", which was released on November 21, 2008 via Metal Heaven Records.

CRYONIC TEMPLE was founded in 1996 and has over the years performed at such festivals as Sweden Rock, Headbanger's Open Air, Peace And Love, Gothenburg Metal, Motala Metal and 2000 Decibel. They have also supported URIAH HEEP, SAXON, LION'S SHARE and PAUL DI'ANNO.

After CRYONIC TEMPLE's successful and highly acclaimed third album, "In Thy Power", in 2005, the band went through some lineup changes and took time off to write new material before hitting the studio.

The group's new lineup features guitarists Esa Ahonen and Leif Collin alongside new singer Magnus Thurin (ex-MINDSCAPE),whose vocal style is said to be influenced by Michael Kiske, Geoff Tate and Tony Martin.
