ENGEL — the Gothenburg, Sweden-based quintet featuring guitarists Marcus Sunesson (THE CROWN) and Niclas Engelin (PASSENGER, ex-GARDENIAN, IN FLAMES), vocalist Mangan Klavborn, drummer Jimmy Olausson (ex-MARIONETTE) and bassist Steve Drennan (LOCUS) — will film a video for a new song on February 10 at Sticky Fingers in their hometown.
ENGEL recently finished recording its third album, “Blood Of Saints”, at Antfarm studios in Aabyhøj, Denmark. According to the group, the new CD “is going to be a good mixture between both [previous ENGEL efforts] ‘Threnody’  and ‘Absolute Design’ , but with some new angles as well! If you liked ‘Threnody’, you will LOVE ‘Blood Of Saints’!”
ENGEL played two shows with Hellmans Drengar, the all-male choir from Gothenburg, Sweden, at Lorensbergsteatern in Gothenburg on September 9, 2011 and September 10, 2011.
The band recently recorded two songs with Hellmans Drengar. One of the tracks, “In Darkness”, was released as a single.
“Threnody” was released in Europe on November 8, 2010 and in the U.S. on January 11, 2011 via Season Of Mist. The CD was issued in Japan on April 20, 2010 via Avex.
The band was previously signed to SPV Records which issued ENGEL‘s debut album, “Absolute Design”, in 2007.
