A brand new, as-yet-untitled song from former MEGADETH guitarist Chris Poland's OHM: project has been posted online at this location. The track comes off OHM:'s forthcoming third studio effort, tentatively titled "Circus of Sound", which is expected to arrive in early 2008. According to a press release, the new material is being described as "slightly heavier, but still very much still uniquely OHM:" Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Circus of Sound", "DD214", "Leap of Faith", "The Black Hand", "YDK", "Steps from Home", "Pan" and "Mr. Brown". Art for the album is being handled by Skip Snyder, who also created the artwork for "Return to Metalopolis - Live", a live recording from the 1991 tour to support Poland's legendary instrumental heavy metal recording "Return to Metalopolis" (1990, Enigma Records).
"Return to Metalopolis – Live" was released on May 25 via Lion Music. Mark Poland (Chris Poland's brother) plays drums and David Randi (who later joined Poland's 1993 project DAMN THE MACHINE) are featured on the live recording. The live release is a chance for the fans of the metal side of Chris Poland's playing to hear him on his first solo tour after leaving MEGADETH. This release will also contain unreleased live and studio material from Poland's archives, not to mention a live enhanced video of his band OHM: performing a reworked version of the classic "Return to Metalopolis" track "Alexandria".
