Confirmation that Anand Mahangoe quit Sphere of Souls. From braveworlds:
"Sphere Of Souls are pleased to announce the addition of lead guitarist Alex Rosenhof of PICTURE OF THE MOON and drummer Milan Ridderhof, formerly of DAISY VAIN. Alex and Milan replace former members Anand Mahangoe"

A very long time between updates. Thanks to Willem again for letting me know about this. Anand Mahangoe has started working on his third Instrumental album...He has to still think about the releasing part and the CD may only be by download as the market is difficult at this time... In order to make a good studio recording at home, Anand Mahangoe has changed some of his gear and is no longer using speakers, but he just plays with the Palmer Speaker simulator and his sound has never been better! Check out these recordings and some basic sounds.
