The Swedish female fronted Black/Thrash Metal act DRACENA announce their return and further plans: on January 30, 2014 the band will release brand new MCD titled “Ravenous Bloodlust“. The Drac Productions release will include 4 new songs, recorded at the famous Sonic Train Studios, which belong to KING DIAMOND guitarist Andy La Rocque. This will be band’s first release since their full lenght album “Infernal Damnation” which was released in 2006.
Dracena was formed in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1994, as an all female band. In April of 1997 the first demo was recorded and released as a limited edition of 100 copies on cassette with 3 own tracks, and a cover version of the VENOM classic “In League With Satan”. In 1998 drummer Karin left the band, but Mia (guitars, vocals), Emma (guitars) and Asa (bass) continued on, and entered Andy La Rocque’s Los Angered Recordings studio to record the second demo (April 1999), with the help of session drummer Terror (SACRAMENTUM, NECROCURSE, SWORDMASTER, RUNEMAGICK etc.). The 3 track material titled “Demonic Women” was released as a demo and a limited 7″ single on Bloodstone Entertainment. In late 2000 Mojjo (DEATHWITCH, LORD BELIAL) joined the band as the drummer, and the band released another demo titled “Labyrinth Of Darkness”. In 2002 band members decided to go separate ways and DRACENA was left with Mia as the only active member: she didn’t give up, and in 2006 DRACENA released its debut album titled “Infernal Damnation”. The same year band appeared on the W.A.S.P. tribute album with “Animal (Fuck Like A Beast)”. Now the band returns with new release and new line up, and already scheduled recording of the next full length album. DRACENA is: Mia – vocals and guitars, Piet The J. – guitars, K. – bass, F. – drums.
