Swedish metallers ENGEL have recruited Mikael Sehlin (DEGRADEAD) as their new singer.
Sehlin (pictured below) made his live debut with ENGEL earlier tonight (Friday, January 4) at the Gothenburg Sound Festival at Trädgårn in Gothenburg, Sweden. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.
ENGEL parted ways with singer Magnus "Mangan" Klavborn in November and recruited Lenne (ex-TWELVESTEP) as his temporary replacement. In a statement announcing his departure from the group, Klavborn said: "I'm not going to rant about the who's and why's, just say goodbye." He added: "I have had a lot of good times and I am sad to leave it behind, but that's how it goes sometimes. It's not a farewell forever; I'm not going to quit music."
ENGEL's latest album, "Blood Of Saints", entered the official chart in Sweden at position No. 60. Released on May 18, 2012 via Season Of Mist, the CD was recorded at Antfarm studios in Aabyhøj, Denmark. According to the group, the album is "a good mixture between both [previous ENGEL efforts] 'Threnody'  and 'Absolute Design' , but with some new angles as well!"
