FEAR MY THOUGHTS Putting Finishing Touches On New Album

German modern melodic death hopefuls FEAR MY THOUGHTS are putting the finishing touches on the follow-up to last year's acclaimed "Vulcanus" album.

Commented the band: "We are currently working our asses off on the new record! Drums are being recorded with the help of Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES, BEHEMOTH, SOILWORK) and the guys of Arsen studios who supplied us with some high-end gear. At the moment, we're about to finish the vocal recordings, and the result so far sounds simply amazing. Martin [Fischer] is doing a great job and his vocals come across more variable than ever before. While Martin is basically working on his own in Karlsruhe, the others were busy recording guitars and bass in Freiburg, Grenzach-Wyhlen and Weil am Rhein... Actually, we spent most time travelling from one city to the other...arghhhh!

"It is pretty hard to describe how the new songs sound. While listening to the rough mixes, I'm trying to find possible comparisons...sometimes it feels like SLAYER, sometimes like PINK FLOYD. You can definitely hear a strong progressive rock vibe in the vein of PORCUPINE TREE or TOOL, on the other side it's straight-forward rock and metal more than ever before! The new record is definitely shaping up well, but probably in a way you would not have expected!"

The new FEAR MY THOUGHTS album is expected to surface in July 2008.

FEAR MY THOUGHTS' Century Media Records debut, "Vulcanus", was released in Europe in January 2007. Helmed by acclaimed Danish producer Jacob Hansen (RAUNCHY, COMMUNIC, MAROON, HATESPHERE, MERCENARY), the CD contains 12 new tracks covering a wide variety of styles, incorporating influences from death and thrash metal to Seventies hard and progressive rock. A personal highlight for the band was the guest appearance on "Accelerate Or Die" by DESTRUCTION frontman Marcel "Schmier" Schirmer and guitarist Mike Sifringer.
