DEMIURG — the Sweden-based band featuring Rogga Johansson (RIBSPREADER, PAGANIZER) on vocals and guitars, Johan Berglund (THIS HAVEN) on bass, Ed Warby (GOREFEST, AYREON, HAIL OF BULLETS) on drums and Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY, NIGHTINGALE, BLOODBATH) on lead guitar and keyboards — will release its third album, "Slakthus Gamleby", on July 30 via Cyclone Empire Records.
Regarding the musical direction of the new CD, Warby tells BLABBERMOUTH.NET, "Marjan Welman from AUTUMN guests on a couple of tracks and the musical style has broadened quite a bit from the last record [2008's 'The Hate Chamber']; the heavy stuff is even heavier and the atmosphere is still black as pitch but we've also incorporated some more melodic and even prog elements." He adds, "We all feel it's the best DEMIURG album yet..."
