Danish symphonic black metallers ILLNATH have been rejoined by drummer Benjamin Johannesen. "This is a big surprise for everyone, most of all ourselves," the band writes on its web site. "We have put everything that has happened in the past behind us, and we will focus exclusively on what is most important for ILLNATH — THE MUSIC. And when it comes to drums, we have always known that Benjamin was best for the band. Welcome back, big daddy!!!"

ILLNATH recently entered Borsing Studios to begin recording its third album, entitled "Three Nights in the Sewers of Sodom". Cover artwork will be handled by Wilhelm Steiner.

"Three Nights in the Sewers of Sodom" is expected to be released via ILLNATH's own label following the band's split with Worldchaos Production (which was supposed to put out the band's long-completed second full-length offering, "Second Skin of Harlequin". "The new material will reflect the new situation we're in — new drummer and new bass player, plus almost three years since the last album was recorded," the group previously said.
