DEMONICA Taps Former SLAYER/TESTAMENT Drummer PAUL BOSTAPH For Sophomore Album
DEMONICA — the project featuring MERCYFUL FATE guitarist Hank Shermann alongside FORBIDDEN/SPIRALARMS axeman Craig Locicero — has tapped drummer Paul Bostaph (SLAYER, EXODUS, TESTAMENT, FORBIDDEN) for the band's sophomore album, which is expected to be recorded sometime in 2013.
"Hank is busy until March and he wants me to write the majority of the record with [bassist Marc] Grabowski and Paul," Locicero tells BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "I've started riffing. That's where it's at. I want Hank to contribute, so I'm taking it slow."
He adds, "For the next few months I'm really concentrating on SPIRALARMS. That's where my heart is."
DEMONICA made its "official" live debut on August 6, 2010 at Lakei in Helmond, The Netherlands. The band also played a "secret" show the night before in Copenhegen, Denmark.
DEMONICA in 2010 inked a North American deal with Giddy Up! Records. The band's debut album, "Demonstrous", was released domestically in June of that year. The CD, which was made available in Europe via Massacre Records, was recorded in the Bay Area, the Rocky Mountains and Copenhagen (Denmark), and was mixed at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado with Dave Otero (CEPHALIC CARNAGE, MARTRIDEN, COBALT).
