REDEMPTION members Nicolas van Dyk and Ray Alder (also of FATES WARNING) have recorded guest appearances on the new album from the Italian progressive-aggressive metal band ELDRITCH, entitled "Blackenday". "Ray contributes some guest vocals and I contribute a guitar solo to a track from 'Blackenday'," says Nicolas.

He adds, "For those who don't know them, ELDRITCH is a really cool band with elements of prog, power, and thrash — definitely check them out! We're very pleased to have been asked to be a part of their new CD and wish them the best."

ELDRITCH entered Bigwave studios on December 1 to begin recording its seventh album, due on April 20. The mixing was handled at the Music Factory studios in Germany with R.D. Liapakis. The cover artwork was created by Nerve Design.

As previously reported, ELDRITCH recorded its gigs in Livorno and Milano on October 6-7 for a possible live CD. The band's sixth album, "Neighbourhell", was released in February 2006.

ELDRITCH made its U.S. live debut at the Chicago Powerfest 2006. The fourth annual metal fest featuring both veteran and up-and-coming bands from various sub-genres of metal was held April 7-8, 2006 in Chicago Heights, IL.
