Hungarian black metal band SEAR BLISS have started this year with a new lineup, as Zoltan Vigh from BORNHOLM replaced Csaba Csejtei on guitars due to his other commitments. Csaba is still a great friend of band and will contribute to the new album too, but he is no longer an active member of the band.
Csaba’s brother Gyula replaced Oliver Zisko on drums. Oliver is no longer into playing metal music plus he has several other projects, therefore it became more and more difficult to arrange things with him. Regarding brass, there has also been a change, as the band’s former long-time trombone player Zoltan Pal returned to Sear Bliss.
2013 is an important year for Sear Bliss, this being the 20th anniversary of the band. It will be celebrated with a huge show in Budapest at the end of the year.
Another important step is that the band started writing new songs for their upcoming album. It will differ a lot compared to the previous one, but anyone who is familiar with Sear Bliss knows they never repeat a record, however the new songs reflect the atmosphere of the band’s earlier, more epic, obscure era.
In terms of live shows, Sear Bliss will play at several European festivals in the summmer and more dates can be expected in autumn.
