WINTERUS ANNOUNCES NEW LINEUP - ‘In Carbon Mysticism’ out now on Lifeforce Records
Michigan black metal act Winterus has announced its permanent updated lineup, which will embark on a headlining tour, the “Lone Wolves Tour”, in June. After the recent departure of guitarist Nathan Barnes (guitar) and Cody McCoy (drums), guitarist Les Paul and drummer Kollin Perpignani have been added to the mix, along with bassist Donovan Bates, to round out the strongest Winterus lineup yet.
“As bands grow, you find people that really get what you are trying to do,” said vocalist Christopher Erich Neu. “Things are only getting tighter.”
"We all have the same mind set, the same mission, the same goal,” added new bassist Donovan Bates.
Winterus will hit the road on the “Lone Wolves Tour” in support of its Lifeforce Records debut In Carbon Mysticism, which released on April 26th.
Ohio heavy metal outfit The Convalescence will accompany Winterus on the trek around the US.
In Carbon Mysticism, Winterus’s latest effort of black metal blasphemy, can be purchased online through Amazon.com as a hard copy CD or digital download at: http://www.amazon.com/Carbon-Mysticism-Winterus/dp/B004RIACF4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1303834493&sr=1-1.
The self-produced and engineered album was recorded last winter in Battle Creek, MI, and mastered in Los Angeles by Maor Appelbaum (Cynic, Therion, and Rob Halford). It consists of six studio tracks and three live recordings.

“…these guys nail that all-important black metal atmosphere.” – Outburn
In Carbon Mysticism sees the band further developing its blackened death metal with a subtle atmospheric edge, drawing influence from such acts as Immortal, Enslaved, Napalm Death, and Nachtmystium.
