Mekong Delta have announced the addition of vocalist Martin LeMar (Tomorrow's Eve) and drummer Alex Landenburg (At Vance, Annihilator) to the group's ranks.

Posted on the band's official site: "Mekong Delta has found a (permanent) replacement for Leo as vocalist. His name is Martin LeMar and you might know him for his work with Tomorrow's Eve. To give you a little insight to Martin's voice, here's a remake of the track "Epilogue" from Mekong Delta's second album ("The Music of Erich Zann") including Martin's vocals."

Mekong Delta has found a drummer able to play the upcoming live shows. His name is Alex Landenburg. In the video section of the site you can find a video where you can see Alex (and hear most of the rest of the band) rehearsing "Immortal Hate".

Due to some discussions going on on the Mekong Delta forums, founding member and bassist Ralf Hubert wants everyone to know what Mekong Delta stands for with the following statement. He will explain in more detail later, but right now it comes down to this:

"Mekong Delta is, was and will never be bounded to musicians, Mekong Delta is a way of composing and every musician who is able to handle his instrument will be able to play the stuff. Furthermore I like to remember that person cult is something I tried to defend from the beginning, most of you should know that. I have to find a way to respect the wishes of you all in seeing Mekong playing live and the time situation of the musicians and as it seems to be impossible to get both together I have to make a decision for the future as for example I needed 2 1/2 years to get the musicians together for the Kaleidoscope tour. The only way to realise permanent live presence and continuos work on new stuff was to change the line up."

Well, I hope they will be able to tour more now... And we'll see exactly what Martin will be able to do, but at least he sounds better than Leo.

They keep changing band members...I liked the vocalist from Lurking Fear...and you don't need to keep changing your damn lineup in order to be on the cutting edge of music and live gigs...that's kinda stupid...

Lurking Fear was alright. i dont think the vocals were mixed very well. hopefully this guy can be more dynamic and get his vocals mixed right.
