Harakiri Auditioning Singers

HARAKIRI has begun auditioning replacements for
singer Matt Reese, who left the band in January. The group has
issued the following update:

“The search for a new vocalist is on. We’ve started the audition
process. We have some good candidates for sure. We’re hoping to
wrap this up fairly soon so if anyone out there, who hasn’t
contacted us already, is still interested in trying out get with us
asap. Or if you inquired about it but we didn’t get back to you,
message us again. Things were getting hectic there for a second and
I am afraid some emails may have been missed.

We are steadily progressing on the writing of the songs for the new
album (musically that is). We pretty much finished up another new
one yesterday. We’re anxious to get all this done and hit the
studio and play some shows.

Anyway, we’re alive and trying to push this forward as fast as we
can. Once a vocalist is decided upon we’ll throw up a demo track
probably.”

As Eden Burns Sign To Willowtip

AS EDEN BURNS has officially signed with
Willowtip. Formed in February 2006 in Houston, TX, AS EDEN
BURNS
play a blend of thrashy, melodic death metal at it’s
very finest. Sometimes technical, at other times straight-forward
and raw, AS EDEN BURNS seem poised to become one
of the biggest and best bands in the genre while still being a
relatively young group.

The band plans on entering the studio in late Spring / early
Summer to record their currently untitled debut full length. They
plan on touring extensively starting in the Summer of 2007.

AS EDEN BURNS released Trace The
Artery
themselves in June 2006. You can hear songs from that
ep at www.myspace.com/asedenburns.

Harakiri Loses Vocalist

HARAKIRI has parted ways with vocalist, Matt
Reese. Guitarist Chris Morrison has issued the following
statement:

“It’s a sad day for Harakiri… founding member/vocalist, Matt
Reese, has left Harakiri after 10 years. He’s left on good terms,
and we’re all still great friends and always will be. We’re really
bummed though, because not only is he a dear friend, Matt is one of
death metal’s best lyricists and vocalists. He never took an easy
approach to writing by telling tales of gore or other things
commonly associated with death metal. His vocal delivery and
lyrical wit was perfect for what Harakiri is all about. We are
honored that he recorded two albums, a CDep, and a few demos with
us. As far as Harakiri’s future… the four of us will to continue
on. We have the music for approximately 8 songs completed for our
new full-length album. We plan to finish writing, secure a new
vocalist, record the album, and get back to playing a few shows.
So, we are looking for a new vocalist/lyricist… we are not your
typical death metal band; therefore, we are not looking for a
typical death metal vocalist/lyricist. Candidates must be at least
21, preferably at least a bit older. One must be able to show us
some samples of lyrical writing style. One must be able to be in
Indianapolis for practice up to a few times a month. Other things
we’re looking for can be discussed later. If interested, email us
here.”
