DARK MOOR Parts Ways With Bassist

Madrid, Spain-based power metallers DARK MOOR have parted ways with bassist Daniel Fernández. He explained in a statement, "In the last few months, my head was not with DARK MOOR and this situation could have been damaging for the band and for my personal relation with Alfred [Romero, vocals], Enrik [Garcia, guitar] and Roberto [Cappa, drums] in a near future. Therefore after some conversations with the guys I have made this decision, which I think is the right thing to do.

"I have spent almost five years in the family, almost five years in which I do not regret of anything, in which I have learned to be a good professional, both in studio and stage, in which I have recorded three works of art ('Beyond The Sea', 'Tarot' and 'Autumnal'), in which I have shared lots of memories with the guys, good and bad, in which I have met lots of good and bad people. Five years of concerts in which I worked my fingers to the bone in order that YOU, the fans, could enjoy DARK MOOR."

He added, "I will keep playing with INNTRANCE, my main band from this moment, in which I will give 100%."

DARK MOOR recently posted a new song, "On The Hill Of Dreams", on the band's MySpace page. The track comes off the group's new album, "Autumnal", due in early 2009. The follow-up to 2007's "Tarot", was recorded in part at New Sin Studios in Italy and features a guest appearance by soprano Itea Benedicto (NIOBETH).
