"A new beginning! The last couple of months we have been busy working on our follow up to 'Twilight of the Thunder God.'
"Ten songs were written and on October 1 we started tracking drums for the album in Park Studios. After a short trip to Tokyo, which included our first ever show in Japan at the renowned Loud Park festival, we continued tracking bass and guitars at Fascination Street studios. Recordings have been going well and we are now more than half-way through and the album starts to take shape.
