THE CLEANSING Announce New Line-Up and Start Working On Third Album

Danish death metal veterans THE CLEANSING have announced the addition of drummer Mads Lauridsen (Konkhra, Panzerchrist) and bassist Martin Leth Andersen (Koldborn) to the group’s ranks.Mads Lauridsen of Konkhra and Panzerchrist fame joins The Cleansing as the replacement for Morten Løwe (now with Amaranthe), while Martin Leth Andersen previously of Koldborn was tapped to replace Mads Haarløv (Iniquity).The current line-up is rounded by vocalist Toke Kristof Eld and guitarists Jeppe Hasseriis and Andreas Lynge.
The band has recently started working on new songs for their yet untitled third full length album, guitarist Andreas Lynge commented on the musical direction of the new material: 

“Recently Jeppe (Hasseriis – guitar) and I started to work on new song ideas for our 3rd album. In order to keep things fresh we’re gonna try some new musical ideas that we haven’t done before. We have had a long break from writing and a lot of new and different inspirations have emerged since Poisoned Legacy and Feeding the Inevitable, and that is really reflecting the new stuff.
Of course it’s still gonna have “The Cleansing sound”, but the music will have “more of a twist” this time! Once people will hear it, they will know what we’re talking about! Right now the writing sessions are at a very early stage, so it’s too early to say more right now!

Meanwhile, The Cleansing was tapped to play Day of Decay festival as the replacement for The Burning this Friday, 18 May in Aalborg. The band is set to play alongside acts like Krisiun, Obscura, Mercenary and others.
