ELDRITCH To Enter Studio In April

March 23, 2010

Italian progressive-aggressive metal band ELDRITCH will enter the studio in April to begin recording its eighth album for a tentative late 2010 release via Diversity Media/LMP. According to the group, "The title [of the new CD] will probably be 'Gaia's Legacy' and it will mark the return to the early era of the band with a modern sound. For this purpose the band announces Fab 'Shiver' Muratori [NHORIZON] at the keyboards."

ELDRITCH's "Livequake" CD/DVD was released in November 2008 via Diversity Media/LMP. The disc was recorded in March 2008 at Music Street Club in Lugnano, Pisa, Italy. The two-hour show was split into two equal parts: the first portion featuring songs from 2001's "Reverse" album and subsequent releases; and the second half containing material from the first three LPs, with all the keyboard parts played by former ELDRITCH keyboardist Oleg Smirnoff.

ELDRITCH parted ways with guitarist Rob "Pek" Proietti in October 2009 and replaced him with Rudj Ginanneschi.

ELDRITCH 2010 is:

Terence Holler - Vocals
Eugene Simone - Lead and Rhythm Guitar
Rudj Ginanneschi - Rhythm Guitar
John Crystal - Bass
Raffahell Dridge - Drums
Fab "Shiver" Muratori - Keyboards

ELDRITCH released its seventh album, "Blackenday", in April 2007 via Inside Out Music. The CD features guest appearances by Ray Alder (FATES WARNING, REDEMPTION, ENGINE) and Nicholas Van Dyk (REDEMPTION) on the song "Broken Road". On all the other tracks you can hear Laura Scappini (IN MEMORY) doing the backup vocals. The CD was mixed by R.D. Liapakis at Music Factory studios in Germany and was mastered by Christian Schmid. A video for the song "The Blackened Day" was shot in February 2007 with director Mirco Andreis.

ELDRITCH made its U.S. live debut at the Chicago Powerfest 2006.
