Switzerland’s Death / Thrashers MESSIAH have added two new members to their line-up. Here’s the band’s official statement: “MESSIAH will start their 4th era in 2022. After the successful reunion in 2018 in the original 1990s Noise line-up, with various international live shows and the new album “Fracmont” in 2020, we have to reorient ourselves. Shouter Andy Kaina has decided not to continue musically and has left the band. We had to accept that, but we remain best friends privately. After a successful session we found a new singer at the end of 2021; Marcus Seebach from Chur, Switzerland (MASQUERADE, TASTE OF TEARS). The chemistry fit right away and we are looking forward to an exciting future together. Since 2021 V.O. Pulver (GURD, POLTERGEIST, PULVER) supports us live on stage on the second guitar. V.O. is the producer of our album “Fracmont” which was recorded in his Little Creek Studio, Switzerland. Already in 1987 he played some live gigs with MESSIAH. In addition to more live shows, a new MLP is planned, to be released via High Roller Records in 2022.” For regular updates you can follow MESSIAH at www.facebook.com/messiahthrashingmadness
