“For clarity — I will not be involved with any of the new Daath music.

I will look back fondly on what we achieved together and appreciate all of your support over the years.

Aside from Verlorener, I’m involved in a few projects which you’ll hear more about in time.


The band’s vocalist Sean Zatorsky and guitarist Eyal Levi also commented on the matter, offering:

“Hello everyone, we just wanted to confirm that Emil Werstler will not be involved with the upcoming DAATH music.

We are endlessly grateful for the amazing work we did together, and wish him the utmost success with Verlorener.

He is truly one of the greats of his generation and our collaboration made it’s mark. That music will live on forever.

Moving forward is not about replacing him as you can’t replace the un-replaceable.

The future is about blowing your minds with the new songs, new lineup, and the rebirth of DAATH.

We eagerly anticipate your reaction this October.

Eyal Levi and Sean Z

Work has been proceeding on a new EP from the album, marking their first output in over a decade. Septicflesh drummer Kerim “Krimh” Lechner was recently enlisted to oversee the percussion for that outing, new music from which is expected out in October.

In other news, the group recently posted an official stream of their 2009 “The Concealers” b-side cover of Oingo Boingo‘s “Nasty Habits“. They commented of that:

“As promised, here’s another rare track! We’ve always been huge fans of Danny Elfman, the legendary film composer. Not everyone knows that long before the film scores he had a band called Oingo Boingo. They were like a 1980s Mr. Bungle. When we recorded The Concealers in 2008, we included this cover of their song ‘Nasty Habits.’ Sadly, it never made It onto the album but it always held a special place in our hearts. Now you get to either enjoy It, or think we’re really weird, or both. You can hear It on our YouTube channel.”
