The 11th Hour - Tap Officium Triste Vocalist For New Album

Pim Blankenstein of Dutch death doom metallers Officium Triste will be stepping in to record vocals for the upcoming The 11th Hour album.

Mainman Ed Warby has released the following statement on the matter: "Good and bad news. As custom dictates the bad first: Rogga Johansson (Bone Gnawer, Demiurg) will not be appearing on the upcoming 11th Hour album due to an illness that just won't subside. I've waited as long as I could for him to get better and he made a valiant effort to record his vocals but it's not up to his usual standard and time is running out.

Which brings us to the good news: Pim Blankenstein of Dutch doom veterans Officium Triste will be stepping in with his massive roar. As most of you know he's been performing live with The 11th Hour since the first show and I'm sure he'll prove a more than suitable replacement."

Officium Triste - New Album On The Way

Dutch death doom metal band Officium Triste are working on a new album, tentatively titled Mors Viri.

The band states in a lengthy update: "We have finished writing this album and recordings will start in April in the studio of our keyboard-player Martin in Germany. We have written six songs with an additional intermezzo and an acoustic track. Some of the song titles are: "To The Gallows", "Burning All Boats And Bridges", "Your Fall From Grace", "The Wounded And The Dying", "Your Heaven Is My Underworld" and "One With The Sea (Part 2)". These might change though. The title for the new album will most probably be Mors Viri.

We have fulfilled our contractual obligations with Displeased Records, so we are currently unsigned. We will record the album and shop it around when it is done and we're positive one or even more labels will be interested.

Next to the recordings we have some great gigs lined up for you, so you can catch us on stage again in 2011.

Next to that we can already mention that we came to an agreement with Spanish label Memento Mori to record some exclusive tracks for a split album with our German friends Ophis. This one should see the light of day in the fall of 2011.

In additional news we can mention that Ed Warby has started recording the second full-length of The 11th Hour. As you might know Bram and Pim are part of the live band and can be seen live on stage with The 11th Hour on a couple occasions.

Pim was also asked by AJ of Beyond Belief and Seth of Severe Torture to provide vocals to their new project called Extreme Cold Winter, so keep an eye out for that one too!"
