German symphonic metallers XANDRIA have entered SandLane Studio in Rijen, The Netherlands to begin recording a new EP for a summer release. The band states: "Everything we are recording right now will end up on this yet-to-be-titled EP. Not only it will contain three brand new tracks… No, here comes the fuzz: we are also going to have two remakes of XANDRIA classics and one or two cover versions for you!"
XANDRIA's sixth album, "Sacrificium", was released in May 2014 via Napalm Records. According to the band, the follow-up to 2012's "Neverworld's End" "continues the musical journey and direction" of the last CD but "brings in even more of everything people liked" about "Neverworld's End".
XANDRIA in 2013 parted ways with their singer of three years, Manuela Kraller, and replaced her with Dutch vocalist Dianne Van Giersbergen, who also fronts the progressive metal outfit EX LIBRIS.
Dianne Van Giersbergen made her live debut with XANDRIA at the end of November 2013 on a Spanish tour.
