Italian traditional heavy metallers MESMERIZE have commenced the recording process for their fourth album, tentatively due before the end of the year through Dragonheart Records. The follow-up to 2002's "Off the Beaten Path" is being recorded in part at drummer Andrea Garavaglia's Octopussy studio with engineer Giovanni Spinotti, who has previously worked with LABYRINTH. Songtitles set to appear on the as-yet-untitled album include "The Burn", "Princess of the Wolves", "Bitter Crop", "Hot Lead, Cold Steel", "Field of Heroes", "Bloody Mary", "Best Place for a Knife", "Windchaser", "Triumph of the Darksword", "Lure of the Temptress" and "Monkeys In Sunday Best"."We are very happy with the songs," the band write on their web site. "They surely fit into the MESMERIZE style, but there are also some new elements that will enrichen our sound, like some very fast parts, some folk-like insers, some orchestration here and there and very probably the participation of a female voice. We tried to build articulated songs, but with power and melodies that strikes you since the first listening."
