The symphonic metal band with light electronic elements noted for having a penchant for myths with an exotic flair is definitely not the same without Lisa Middelhauve. They are now officially looking for a new vocalist to replace their former leader which left 2 weeks ago for personal reasons.
Here’s the quote from their official web site on Middelhauve’s departure:
“Lisa Middelhauve is not the singer of Xandria anymore. After almost eight years of successful work together she decided to leave the band due to personal reasons. For some time now Lisa didn´t feel comfortable with her role as Xandria´s front woman anymore and wants to step aside to make it possible for the band to find someone who can stand behind Xandria completely. A step that we all regret, but is highly respected. We want to thank her for the great, successful and unforgettable time we had together and wish her only the best for the future! Thank you – your contribution to Xandria and everything you did for the band we will never forget!”
Here’s one of their last music videos with Lisa Middelhauve released in summer 2007, “Save My Life”
Most of us hate economy class, Delta’s new “Cozy Suite” seats promise to make economy class seating less hellish. The major feature of the design is a staggered layout that increases privacy while simultaneously creating a space for weary travelers to rest their heads. It also allows passengers to enjoy 31-inches of leg room (2-inches better than the competition) and the ability to recline without disturbing the person behind them.
Delta is planning to have these seats in the economy section of its Boeing 777 and 767 fleet by year 2010. It still may not be as fancy as first class accommodations, but it’s a change from what we are having.
