Israeli thrashers NAIL WITHIN (formerly EMBLAZE) have parted ways with vocalist Yishai Sweartz. According to the group's official web site, Yishai decided to leave the band "due to personal reasons." A replacement singer has yet to be named.
NAIL WITHIN's self-titled debut, which was produced by Harris Johns (SODOM, KREATOR, DESTRUCTION) at Spiderhouse Studio in Lutte, Germany, was released last month through France's Listenable Records. The 11-track effort features guest appearances by KREATOR frontman Mille Petrozza, ex-AT THE GATES/THE CROWN singer Tomas Lindberg and ASSASSIN vocalist Robert Gonnela.
