Marc Grabowski completes Demonica lineup
Shermann reportedly chose Denver upon hearing Corruption's album, Alone, which was recorded by metal maestro Dave Otero at his Flatline studio. Grabowski passed along the disc to Shermann -- with whom he'd become friends years earlier; the former's girlfriend was friends with the latter's wife -- a few years back when Mercyful Fate stopped in Denver. Upon discovering that Grabowski was no longer with Corruption, Shermann asked him to join the band's already stellar lineup, which also includes guitarist Craig Locicero, drummer Mark Hernandez from Forbidden and longtime metal journalist Klaus Hyr on vocals.
Grabowski will begin cutting his bass tracks tomorrow at Flatline for the forthcoming album, which will be mixed in March. Later this summer, in addition to playing some shows in San Francisco, the Demonica dudes will head to Europe to play several open-air metal festivals.
