Danish metallers Mnemic have announced a new line-up. Tomas "Obeast" Koefoed, Brian "Brylle" Rasmussen and Rune Stigart will be replaced by the three new members Simone Bertozzi, Victor-Ray Salomonsen and Brian Larsen. Also, the band has commenced writing a new album, to be released in 2012 through Nuclear Blast Records.

The band issued the following update: "The circumstances are different now than what they where one year ago in the Mnemic camp. After playing for 10 years, times do change, and some members of the band have started taking different paths in their personal lives. The first change started with Tomas "Obeast" Koefoed leaving the band, being replaced by Italian bass player Simone Bertozzi (Empyrious, Modern Age Slavery). Simone has been playing some shows with us and has actually been with the band since Tomas left back in March/April. The second change, due to personal and musical differences, we have also decided that it is best to part ways, with both Brian "Brylle" Rasmussen (drums) and Rune Stigart (guitar)."

"Like any relationship, there things that are impossible to work out, and we are extremely sadden by this situation, but there is nothing else to do than to take a step into a different direction. We wish our brothers all the best for the future, and we hope to see them soon again in their own musical and artistic endeavors. Their replacement will be found in the two new members Victor-Ray Salomonsen and Brian Larsen from Danish tech act Vira."

Mnemic 2011 is:

Guillaume Bideau - Vocals
Mircea Gabriel Eftemie - Guitar
Victor-Ray Salomonsen - Guitar
Simone Bertozzi - Bass
Brian Larsen - Drums

Sounds like a badass lineup to me.

This band quit being good ages ago if I recall right. Not a fan of the new album at all.

Ya, their debut/sophomore releases weren't too bad for what they were, but then for some reason they decided to follow them up with complete garbage. Maybe shaking up the lines will allow some more creativity to flow.

Or it might result in a train wreck. Whatevs.

Mechanical Spin Phenoma is a very enjoyable album to me, I like to give it a play every once in a while, but everything else by Mnemic is just boredom to me. So yea, line-up change or whatever, I actually thought these guyscall it quits until I read this news...

I liked their first 2 albums. After that I kind of lost interest and forgot about them. Maybe I'll check out the new stuff when it comes out.
