News: New Project of Michael Kiske

Producer Mat Sinner checks in from the recordings of the highly aclaimed new melodic metal project by former HELLOWEEN vocalist Michael Kiske and American singer Amanda Somerville (Avantasia)!
„We’ve finished the songwriting for 12 original new songs – no covers .... and a week ago, we’ve started the final recordings! Everything looks cool and the song material is amazing!“
Most of the songs are written by Mat Sinner & Magnus Karlsson (co-producer & guitarist), more songwriting contributions come from former „After Forever“ guitarist Sander Gommans, Amanda Somerville (Arise, A Thousand Suns, Set Afire) and two outstanding symphonic songs written by Mat Sinner with keyboard maestro Jimmy Kresic (End Of The Road, Devil In Her Heart). Some more song titles can be revealed for the moment: Silence, Don't Walk Away, Rain, Nothing Left To Say, If I Had A Wish, One Night Burning and Second Chance
We’re recording in two studios at the moment. Magnus is recording guitars at his own Stuntguitar Studios in Sweden and I’m working at the „Audiospezialist“ Studio in Germany with drummer Martin Schmidt (ex-Atrocity, RMC Band) and keyboarder Jimmy Kresic (Voodoo Circle). After the „Primal Fear“ European Tour, we will start with the vocal & chior recordings and I’m really looking forward to be a part of this progress. This album is a big challenge and it sounds already like something really special for me, in a time we face a hundered metal releases every month. Sander Gommans will join the team and will add some lead guitars and we’re talking to two more prominent musicians for a guest appearance.
Achim Koehler (Primal Fear, Edguy) is chosen to mix & master the album at Indiscreet Studios for a spring release on Frontiers Records.

Look out for a melodic metal masterpiece in early 2010!
