Dark Empire - Need New Vocalist After Split


New Jersey-based progressive metal band Dark Empire have parted ways with vocalist Jens Carlsson and seek a replacement immediately.

Band leader/lead guitarist/death vocalist Matt Moliti comments: "This decision was a long time coming and it was a hard one to make, since Jens is a great dude to work with. With him living in Sweden and the rest of us in the New Jersey, it is impossible to do any kind of gigging, which is something we need to make this band continue. This was a mutual decision and there are no hard feelings at all. We wish Jens the best in his endeavors with Persuader and Savage Circus. As for a replacement, since I am already writing new material, we would like to find one as soon as possible. We're most interested in a singer with an abrasive or hard rock quality to their voice, and of course, must be living in or willing to commute or relocate to the northern New Jersey/NYC area. Send any audio or video samples to our MySpace page."

Jens Carlsson adds: "After a long consideration, we in the band made the decision for me to step down as singer for Dark Empire. For Matt and the guys to push the band forward, live appearences are essential and the fact that I live in Sweden was becoming a bigger and bigger problem. I also have Persuader and Savage Circus who need attention as well. There are no hard feelings, but something had to be done about the situation. I wish the guys in Dark Empire all the best, and you fans out there, keep on rocking!"

For me, this is by far the most interesting part of this news. Yes they do need attention! Immediately.

Bullshit, savage circus hasnt done anything besides release a dvd in the past like 5 years, im sure dark empire's demands arent THAT heavy to the point of not being able to do ANY other music.

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.

Both SC and Persuader should release cd's this year. At least according to the latest news form their sites, which aren't so new.
