Germany's METALIUM have commenced the songwriting process for the follow-up to last year's "Hero-Nation Chapter III", tentatively due in late 2003 through Massacre Records. "The boys gathered in the past weeks to listen to the songs (as you should know meanwhile ALL musicians in METALIUM are writing music...) and arranging as well as pre-produce the stuff," according to the band's official newsletter. "Next week they will finally START with Mr. Ehre on drums for the REAL take of '... — Chapter Four'. As birdies told... the ones who heard some of the demo stuff confirmed: 'THE STUFF IS F.....G HEAVY'" and a bit 'MORE DRIVING' than 'Hero-Nation'. But don't worry, the METALIUM-typicals are always present as usual."In related news, METALIUM bassist Lars Ratz was recently asked by ex-URIAH HEEP keyboardist Ken Hensley to appear on his upcoming CD, due later in the year. "As a huge URIAH HEEP fan, Lars agreed, of course, and feels very honored to be part of the Ken Hensley solo CD this way," states the newsletter.
