Danish metal band MNEMIC have named Frenchman Guillaume Bideau of SCARVE as their new vocalist. MNEMIC issued the following statement on the recruitment:
“As you’ve probably heard from other sources, the new singer of MNEMIC will be Guillaume Bideau from SCARVE. Now it’s official, and it’s official when we say its official. Guillaume impressed us in the rehearsal and in the studio. First off he nailed the old songs 110%, and second we did a demo one of the new songs with him, which turned out like a multilayered vocal metallic opera. He will definitely bring the sound of MNEMIC to the next level and we are more than happy to have him in the band as the new frontmonster!”
Bideau, a longtime member of SCARVE, commented further:
“I’m extremely proud and happy to be joining MNEMIC. This is definitely a big turn in my musical career and I feel more confident than ever. I was in SCARVE for almost eight years and I’m leaving this band today without any feuds between the guys and myself, they totally understand my choice and decision. Sometimes things don’t go as planed unfortunately, but the band still has plenty of time to finish the new album. I really wish SCARVE all the very best for the future, I know they’ll move on.
“MNEMIC is exactly the kind of crazy shit I was expecting to be part of! It’s going to be an amazing, open-minded human and musical adventure and I’ll be able to be 100% myself in this band. I can’t wait to join them in studio to record that damn new album! Trust me, it will be kickass!”
The band are scheduled to begin recording their follow-up to 2004’s The Audio Injected Soul at Bomb Shelter Studios in downtown Los Angeles in the next couple of weeks. Expect an early 2007 release via Nuclear Blast Records.
