American metallers Dark Empire have recently welcomed a new member to the band: guitarist Christian Colabelli. He will replace Andrew Atwood, who split with the band just prior to the recording of last year's album, From Refuge To Ruin. You can watch a video of Matt Moliti and new guitarist Christian Colabelli going through some new material for 2013.

Christian had this to say about joining Dark Empire: "It's an honor to be an official member of Dark Empire. Since I've known Matt, we've had a mutual respect and admiration for each other's playing. When he initially asked me to fill in on guitar for live performances, I quickly recognized the chemistry, power, and potential of the lineup and was amazed at how natural it felt. I know Matt and I will challenge each other as guitarists and I expect huge accomplishments for Dark Empire in 2013."

Guitarist/vocalist Matt Moliti had this to say: "I'm really excited to have Christian a part of Dark Empire. His technical ability and songwriting skills are definitely going to take things to the next level, and fans can now expect a dual lead guitar attack reminiscent of bands like Racer X and Cacophony on the new material. Yes, we have already started writing some new riffs with the intention of releasing a free 5-track EP by the end of 2013. Stay tuned to the Dark Empire Facebook page as we will be periodically updating with videos of the writing, rehearsal and recording process!"
