Swedish rockers M.ILL.ION are currently mixing their new album, "Thrill Of The Chase", at Bohus Studio studios with Tobias Lindell. A late May release via Germany's Metal Heaven is expected.
Commented band founder B.J Laneby: "How does it sound? Hmm, 'melodies and muscles' might be one way to put it. I don't think you will be disappointed... I'm very excited and it rocks, baby!"
He added, "Later this year it's time for M.ILL.ION to do some touring, don't you think? This will be helped by the fact that we, after a couple of weeks of mail contact and a good face-to-face meeting, recently signed to the new booking agency Sweden Metal Music Entertainment. We are also in talks with a couple of more good companies for different markets. Gig and touring offers have already started to drop in and Germany, Sweden and Italy are among the countries that might be Millionized in a not too distant future."
Majestic Rock in 2006 released a M.ILL.ION compilation album, entitled "1991-2006 ... The Best So Far", featuring songs from the first five M.ILL.ION albums plus previously unreleased material, including the following: "Evil Inside" (from the "Kingsize" recording sessions), live version of "Candyman" (recorded at the succesful Firefest gig in Bradford, England in 2005) and the video for "Backdoor Queen" (filmed at the launch party show for "Kingsize" in the boys' hometown of Gothenburg in Sweden). The artwork was handled by none other than U.K. artist Hugh Gilmour, who has previously designed album covers for IRON MAIDEN, BLACK SABBATH and MOTÖRHEAD, among others.
