Fifth Angel - Back In Business With New Singer

Cult US Power metal act Fifth Angel are officially back in business. After a twenty year break, the band played together for the first time in April last year at the Keep It True XIII Festival. But now the band is back in full force. Here's the official press statement:

"The fans have spoken, and after many years away, their wish is granted! Fifth Angel has returned!

Fifth Angel performed live for the first time last April at the Keep It True Festival in Lauda-Konigshoffen, Germany (with guest vocalist Peter Orullian (Heir Apparent)), and the wheels were set into motion for a full-throttle re-launch of a band long regarded as legendary in the heavy metal history books.

Ed Archer (guitar), Kendall Bechtel (lead guitar) and John Macko (bass), the three original members of the Time Will Tell era of the band, along with new drummer Jeffrey McCormack returned from their critically acclaimed performance to begin the search for their new lead vocalist...

Ava Inferi - Introduce New Bass Player

Ava Inferi are gearing up for the release of their fourth studio effort Onyx, to be released in February. In the meantime, the band welcomes new bass player Joana Messias (Mourning Lenore) to their ranks.

Ava Inferi main man Rune Erickson (ex-Mayhem, Aura Noir) writes: ""To 2011! The year one!". Although Roman Castevet linked 1966 and a birth to this very phrase, we in Ava Inferi forged the same praise into our own symbolic terms for this newly charged Year. With the magick rites of Onyx soon pouring over us, we definitely sense a year of potent transformation. From cocoon to butterfly, or winged beast if you will, our impact is most certain impending. And what could a better time then now, whilst the new year still struggles to get up on its feet, to announce a new member to our Coven (?!).

Rebellion - Three Members Leave The Band

There is some bad news from the Rebellion camp: guitarist Uwe Lulis (ex-Grave Digger) has decided to quit the German heavy/power metal band. Furthermore, also drummer Gerd Lücking and guitarist Simone Wenzel have announced their departure.

Uwe Lulis stated: "Rebellion was also my band and I would be pleased if bassist Tomi Göttlich (ex-Grave Digger) and vocalist Michael Seifert will continue successfully".

The situation of Rebellion is thus extremely difficult, and the two remaining members are now deliberating whether and how they are going to carry on with the band.

Commented Tomi Göttlich: "We ask ourselves whether Rebellion without Uwe can still be Rebellion. On the other hand a band always depends on their fans, so we would be pleased if our fans told us their opinion about it."
