German modern melodic death hopefuls FEAR MY THOUGHTS are scheduled to release their new album, "Isolation", in Europe on July 21 via Century Media Records (July 18 in Germany). The follow-up to last year's "Vulcanus" was recorded at the band's own Black Halo Studios by guitarist Patrick Hagmann. The artwork concept and design was created by Markus Ruf (guitar) while new vocalist Martin Fischer composed, played and recorded all synthesizer and organ parts. The vocal recordings and the mix were overseen by Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES, SOILWORK, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD).
Commented guitarist Patrick Hagmann: "Were pretty excited about the reactions on the new album. We know it differs from the old stuff, but it still has the 'FEAR MY THOUGHTS flame' in it and we fuckin love it. We do not want to limit ourselves or repeat the same ideas over and over again. The new songs represent perfectly the wide range of our musical tastes, from metal to rock to punk to jazz to progressive music. Martin brought in some fresh blood and as he is a highly versatile artist, he also had an impact on the songwriting. FEAR MY THOUGHTS fans are known for being open minded and not submitting to the latest trends and fashions in the music biz, so get ready for the new musical challenge called 'Isolation'."
