Norwegian power metallers GAIA EPICUS have announced the addition of drummer Ole A. Myrholt (ARCHON, DIABOLICAL, BREED, ENSLAVEMENT OF BEAUTY, I WAS FLESH ONCE, VALE, THE WHIPCORDS) to the group's ranks. "Myrholt is no stranger to the music industry as he has been in many bands," the group write on their web site. "Now he is a member of GAIA and we are sure he will do a great job of pounding the drums for the band."
As previously reported, GAIA EPICUS have uploaded their video for the track "Hands of Fate" at this location (Windows Media). The clip was shot "outdoors in the forest" in August and features a guest appearance on drums by Robert Myrhaug (MEMORIZED DREAMS).
"Hands of Fate" comes off the group's second album, "Symphony of Glory", available now on Sound Riot Records. The follow-up to 2003's "Satrap" was recorded and mixed over a five-week period at Top Room Studios (TRISTANIA, VINTERSORG, BORKNAGAR) with producer Børge Finstad and features artwork by Michael A. Mueller (MEGADETH). The CD was mastered at Bazement Studios.
