ARTILLERY Announce NEW Drummer!
Danish Metallers ARTILLERY have announced that they have recruited drummer Josua Madsen to replace founding member Carsten Nielsen, who quit the band this past April "for personal reasons." Madsen previously played drums in CONSUMED (the Houston, Texas-based progressive death act). This is what the band had to say about this:
"Josua has been living the last couple of years in the U.S. playing with different bands. Last Danish band was CLUB HELL. We are looking forward to go on the road with Josua, his first gig will be at Headbangers Open Air in Hamburg, Germany: Thanx to former drummer Carsten for the 30 years of thrashing!"
This past May, ARTILLERY performed in New York and at the Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore. They also performed in Argentina, Chile and Brazil. At the end of the year, ARTILLERY will be part of the "Barge To Hell" cruise ship that will go from Miami, Florida to the Bahamas.
ARTILLERY's sixth album, 'My Blood', was released in Europe on March 21, 2011. 14 songs were laid down during the sessions at Medley Studios in Copenhagen — 10 brand NEW tracks, a remake of "Ain't Giving In" (from 1992's "Mind Factory" demo) and three bonus tracks which are all NEW versions of timeless classics from the 1985 album 'Fear Of Tomorrow' ("The Eternal War", "The Almighty" and "Show Your Hate"). The cover artwork was created by well-known Polish graphic designer Graal, who has previously worked with VITAL REMANS, SINISTER, SOLITUDE AETURNUS and BULLDOZER. Graal was also responsible for the covers of ARTILLERY's 'Through The Years' box and 'When Death Comes'.
