German thrashers DEW-SCENTED have issued the following update:"We have 12 new songs completed and are working on some cool cover version idea for the upcoming album which will be released early 2007 via Nuclear Blast Records. Starting by the end of October, we will record with our friend Jörg Uken at Soundlodge Studio (GOD DETHRONED, OBSCENITY, MANDRAKE, etc.) in Northern Germany and then we tapped Andy Sneap (ARCH ENEMY, MACHINE HEAD, KREATOR, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, etc.) to mix and master the album at his Backstage Studios in England. The album is still not titled, so any good suggestions (you know the pattern!), please send it our way. "As most of you will have witnessed on stages already, guitarist Flo Mueller (who wasn't part of the recordings for 'Issue VI' and its first touring leg) is back in the band. Good news indeed. Him and Hendrik have been writing some killer material for this new album and we can't wait for you to hear it. Our longtime friend and stand-in guitarist Marvin Vriesde (who played with DEW-SCENTED last year as replacement for Flo) is currently on the road with his main band SEVERE TORTURE on a really long European tour with Polish death metal masters VADER. "DEW-SCENTED is supporting American metal shooting stars TRIVIUM on three club shows in Germany early December: Dec. 4 in Munich, Dec. 6 in Frankfurt and Dec. 9 in Cologne. Additional support comes from Sweden's WOLF. We are happy to team up with TRIVIUM again at last. It has been awhile, as (probably news to you) we first met TRIVIUM some years back when they played their first ever show in Europe with us in Eindhoven / Holland on October 17th, 2003. Opening band that night was PROSTITUTE DISFIGUREMENT. Time flies... "We are proud to announce that DEW-SCENTED will be at last debuting on Greek stages. It's long overdue to meet our fellow thrashers in Greece, so we look forward to this great opportunity! See you soon at the following shows: Feb. 24 - Athens (Greece) - An Club
Feb. 25 - Thessaloniki (Greece) - Mylos Club "After vocalist Leif was already featured with guest spots some years ago on the NIGHT IN GALES album 'Nailwork' and also on HOLY MOSES' 'Disorder Of The Order', he entered studios with French extreme death metallers BENIGHTED to leave some shouts on their 'Identisick' album. Also, he appears on the Lifeforce Records album 'Bloodred Salvation' by FALL OF SERENITY. "Bass player Alex has a new great death metal album out with his longterm band OBSCENITY via Armageddon Music. Guitarist Hendrik is appearing with some lead guitar stuff on the second RECKLESS TIDE album 'Helleraser', soon to be out on Armageddon Music as well. Of course, Marvin has a new cool album entitled 'Fall of the Despised' out with SEVERE TORTURE on Earache Records and our buddy Reno Kiilerich (who played drums with us on the European tour with NEVERMORE last year) has a new PANZERCHRIST material out and most likely tons of other stuff going on."
