New drummer found
Our drum auditions have come to an end, and we can say that we’ve found ourselves a new friend! We’d like to thank all drummers who participated the auditions, but there can be only one!
Our man on the bass guitar Michel Steenbekkers started to record his low tunes for our new album. Ok, we’re not jumping the gun, but we can say that we and our studio Split Second Sound are more than happy with the recordings so far! After this weekend drums, all rhythm guitars and bass should be taped.
Recordings for our new album have begun!
Today we have started recording drums for our new album. We have again teamed up with Split Second Sound for this production, just like we did with For Moments Never Done.
Snippet number 5 can be seen in the gallery and on our YouTube channel.
New songs captured on Demo!
New songs have been written and captured on a home demo recording. When all is finished we are heading towards the studio!
Some snippets have been made to give you all a tiny peek under the curtain to see what we are doing at the moment.

‘For Moments Never Done’ review from Dante Blog USA.
We are proud of this one...
Quote: “Cirrha Niva is an experienced, professional prog-metal band with two phenomenal guitarists and a lead singer with a voice from another world. Their music reflects their professionalism, their arrangements are well-balanced, their recording near flawless, and their understanding of their ability to present each song with heart and spirit is inspiring.”
