MEHIDA Hard At Work On Second Album

MEHIDA, the Finnish/Swedish melodic metal band featuring former CANDLEMASS/current THERION singer Thomas Vikström, has issued the following update:

"The recording of the second MEHIDA album is going on full steam and all the people who liked the approach of the first one can expect the follow up album to be even stronger and more powerful. We'll be working with the album during the spring 2008, and the second album should be out in next year or so — still depending on schedules and such."

In other news, MEHIDA has posted the Christmas song "O Holy Night" ("O Helga Natt"), performed in Swedish, on the band's MySpace page.

MEHIDA earlier in the year inked a deal with Napalm Records. The group's debut album, "Blood & Water", came out in August.

"Blood & Water" was recorded and mixed at Fantom Studio, co-produced and mixed by Samu Oittinen (DIABLO, SILENTIUM etc.). The CD contains "over fifty minutes of energetic modern metal," according to a press release.

MEHIDA is:

Thomas Vikström - Vocals
Jarno Raitio - Bass
Mikko Harkin (ex-SONTATA ARCTICA, KOTILPELTO) - Keys
Jani Stefanovic (ex-AM I BLOOD) - Guitar
Markus Niemispelto - Drums
