Finland's EVEMASTER will enter the studio in late February to re-record their cult debut album, "Lacrimae Mundi" for a late summer release through Rising Realm Records. The reissue will include enhanced artwork and a bonus track, a cover of DIO's "We Rock". Drums on "Lacrimae Mundi" will be once again be handled by Jaska Raatikainen from CHILDREN OF BODOM. According to the band, the idea behind the re-recording is to make it "as punk as possible … a lot harsher sounding and heavier than the original version." The cover art will be designed by Jan "Örkki" Yrlund.
EVEMASTER's second album, "Wither", was released last spring through Low Frequency Records. Recorded at Astia Studios (CHILDREN OF BODOM, WARMEN, ENTWINE) with producer Anssi Kippo, the CD included a cover of TAROT's "Wings Of Darkness", with lead vocals courtesy of Marco Hietala (NIGHTWISH, TAROT, SINERGY).
