EVEMASTER Plays First Show In Over Five Years; Video Available

April 27, 2010

EVEMASTER — the Finnish "dark metal" band which features in its ranks BATTLELORE's Tomi Mykkänen — played its first show in over five years on April 11, 2010 at Club Rockstars in Tallinn, Estonia.

Video footage of the performance can be viewed below.

EVEMASTER's new album, "III", will be released later on June 9 via Supernova Records, a division of Bonnier Amigo. A single release will precede the full-length effort.

"III" track listing:

01. Enter
02. New Age Dawns
03. Humanimals
04. Losing Ground
05. The Great Unrest
06. Sweet Poison
07. Harvester of Souls
08. Fevered Dreams
09. Absolution

The following musicians have contributed to the making of the album:

* Jarno Taskula: vocals
* Tomi Mykkänen: guitars, synths, vocals
* Enrico Annus (KHERT-NETER): drums
* Ville Sorvali (MOONSORROW): bass
* Dan Swanö: clean vocals
* Ismo Monola (MY SWEET SORROWS): synths
* Markus Vanhala (OMNIUM GATHERUM): lead guitar on two songs
* Harri Hyytiäinen (AVATHAR): vocals

Death-Illustrated is working on the cover artwork for the CD.

According to Mykkänen, "III" is "a concept album revolving around a dystopian dream or a fall of this one pitiful man... Musically this album is the third part of the trilogy. Next album will be musically different going deeper in the emotions and darker side of human mind."

Rising Realm Records released a re-recorded version of EVEMASTER's debut album, re-titled "MMIV Lacrimae Mundi", in early 2005. Drums on "MMIV Lacrimae Mundi" were handled by CHILDREN OF BODOM's Jaska Raatikainen. According to the band, the idea behind the re-recording was to make it "as punk as possible … a lot harsher sounding and heavier than the original version."

EVEMASTER's second CD, "Wither", was recorded at Astia Studios (CHILDREN OF BODOM, WARMEN, ENTWINE) with producer Anssi Kippo and featured a guest appearance on drums by Raatikainen. Also included on the CD was a cover of TAROT's "Wings Of Darkness", with lead vocals courtesy of Marco Hietala (NIGHTWISH, TAROT, ex-SINERGY).
