They are finally done recording their third album. Comments by the bassist Max Malmer: After recording for quite a long time, we are happy to be able to say that the final master of our third album is completed. A lot of meticulous work has been put into the songs, and because of that I believe that this is the best record that the band has ever produced so far! We want to specially thank Jonas Kjellgren, Per Nilsson, and Ronnie Björnström for their help with production and mixing of the album.
The band will soon be back with the title and release date of the album.
After Zonarias last tour with Nile, Zonaria decides to take in bass player Max Malmer as permament member.
Commented ZONARIA guitarist Emil Nyström: "The band really hit it of well with Max on our last European tour. He's just a badass friend and a really talented young player. We hope to get some awesome stuff set up with him in the nearest future."
Max Malmer: "It feels great being in this band, it’s a band with both great music and great people in it which can be almost hard to find these days and in this town. Also the experience of being on my first tour ever with them was amazing, I’m looking forward to many future years as the bassist of Zonaria!"
LA guitarist Caleb Bingham (Ascension, Ex- Five Finger Death Punch) has joined Swedish death/black metal band Zonaria. Zonaria is currently on tour with Nile, Dew-Scented, Melechesh and Darkrise throughout all of Europe.
Emil Nyström comments on Caleb: “Caleb has been a great friend of mine for quite some time. And while recording our third cd Simon felt like he wanted to focus on the singing. So from now on Simon will only handle the vocals and Caleb has stepped in as our new guitarist. He’s an amazing guitarist and has a fantastic view on music and guitar playing.”
Caleb comments on joining the band: “It’s fantastic to be out on the road with Zonaria. I’ve always been a fan of death metal music, especially death metal music from Sweden, so playing with what I would consider to be one of the best modern Swedish death metal bands is both a pleasure and an honor. People should most definitely expect some major things coming from Zonaria in the very near future.”
