VANMAKT's Gorgoth (a.k.a. Tais) has issued the following update on his Swedish gothic/doom metal project EERIE:
"Since EERIE has taken a little turn in the musical deparment we have decided that we need a female vocalist that can sing at side of Tais. The new song is a little less doom and more classical goth/metal with the essence of THEATRE OF TRAGEDY, PARADISE LOST, SIRENIA and so on. A new pre-recorded song without vocals has been uploaded to our MySpace site; the song is called 'Silence'!
"It doesn't matter where in the world you live, as long as you have an Internet connection, a microphone and a recording-program, ProTools would be best since I use that. We don't care about looks, only about your voice and how you manage to arrange the vocal parts of the songs for yourself. Of course, with my guidance over the net. Sure, the best thing would be that you lived here in Karlskrona, Sweden. But I have really searched everywhere now and I can't find anyone that has the voice I want! So, now it's up to all of you out there to send me demo, tapes etc.
"Heres some restrictions.
* Female, over 20 years of age.
* Must have a recorded demo tape, or song in which we can hear you sing.
* Own or know someone that has a recording studio so that you can record your vocals on our songs.
"We have talked to several labels the past two months but no deal has been signed since we haven't got the right one. But, we are awaiting a great future with EERIE and we really want to find whomever you are!"
According to EERIE's official bio, the band "was formed by Tais in 2007, but has grown inside his mind since 2003. The love for doom and gothic/metal has always been a big part of Tais' life, and since the first time he picked up the guitar to write a song it has been melancholic tunes that have arisen. That's why he has been playing in a lot of constellations with a direction against the melancholic and melodic goth/metal."
