A photo of SARCASM new line-up. Due to health issues etc Fredrik had to leave the band prior to the recording of the new album, and Henrik left because he had to focus on his other projects and stuff and felt that he had very little space left for this band. Although neither of them were involved in the songwriting process of the album it was still sad to see them leave, and we wish them all the best. The replacement for Fredrik is once again Anders Eriksson, Anders who played guitar on our first album was thrilled to come back to this band again. And the one who replaced Henrik is Jonas Söder, an excellent bass player who played with Peter in several bands in the 90's. The new album is now completely recorded and will be mixed next week by mr Lawrence Mackrory at Studio Maskinrummet.
L-R: Anders Eriksson: Guitars, Peter Laitinen: Guitars, Matte Modin: Drums, Heval Bozarslan: Vocals, Jonas Söder: Bass

Here's the cover art for the new SARCASM album "Within the Sphere of Ethereal Minds". The art was done once again by Raul Gonzalez Art, we loved that skeleton dude so much so we used him again (He's our mascot now, we call him Sarcor) And continues on the back cover with planets and awesome stuff, only those who buy the LP/CD will see it ;) It's not a concept album but a thematic one (hope you know the difference) and it's all about cosmos, the power of the mind, laws of the universe, the great vortex, spiritual realms etc. Almost everything written in the "non-physical's point of view" (absolutely not religious, on the contrary lol) A philosophical and interesting journey through mind indeed. As you probably know, the lyrics of this band are as important as the music, and we don't just do some lyrics about zombies and stuff, which is also cool but not for us. The music is like the first album very melodic, in many ways faster and a bit shorter songs. The album will be released in march on Dark Descent Records One of the songs can be heard very soon. And a music video etc etc. Just stay tuned.. Cheers!

Recently we've had discussions in the band whether to continue or to dissolve the band after our drummer Oscar Karlssons passing. These things are never easy, especially when a member is also a close friend. But after much talk we have decided to keep the train rollin' and complete the songs and record the album. First and foremost because Oscar loved these new material so much and for the past six months till his passing he kept telling us how important it is that we record and release these new songs, and he is right as he always was. To stop everything now is not something he'd wish us to do. That we are certain of. And the one who can truly do the new songs justice is the one and only Matte Modin, who will be playing drums on the new album. Besides being an excellent drummer Matte is also an old friend of the band and played in different projects in the past with some of our band members. We're thrilled to have him on board. The album which will be entitled "Ethereal" will be recorded in july. Album details coming soon.
