Reactivated LAMENTED SOULS Working On New Music

September 20, 2010

Reactivated Norwegian cult doom rockers LAMENTED SOULS have issued the following update:

"The band recently camped at casa Apollyon to rehearse some new stuff. Booze and beers were consumed, delicious meals as well, and we even found the time to play around with some new riffs. The result — three more or less complete new songs, in addition to the 6-7 we already have, plus a bunch of as-of-yet-unused riffs that sound very promising.

"We're not gonna start talking dates yet — experience has taught us the folly of doing so when you play lazy old doom — but these news should bode well for another LAMENTED SOULS album actually happening. Meanwhile, check out our other projects; WAKLEVÖREN, VIRUS and so on and stay doom!"

LAMENTED SOULS is looking for a proper label to release the band's follow-up to 2004's "The Origins of Misery". Interested parties can contact the group through the LAMENTED SOULSMySpace page.

After vocalist/guitar player Simen "Vortex" Hestnæs parted ways with DIMMU BORGIR last year, it was only a matter of time until his original outfit would once again rear its ugly head. The band — whose lineup also includes OJ "Apollyon" Moe (IMMORTAL, AURA NOIR),Olav Knutsen (WAKLEVÖREN, INFERNÖ) and Einar Sjursø (VIRUS) — played the Metal Merchants festival in the group's hometown of Oslo at the end of January (see video below).
