German metallers METALIUM have finalized the track listing for their sixth album, "Nothing to Undo – Chapter VI", due in February 2007.
Commented the band: The lyrical themes are about the deepest innerside of a human being…. Lies, betrayal, false friends… but also about honour, loyalty and blind understanding. In general, the most direct and dramatic lyrics of METALIUM so far and more related to reality than the other chapters. Once more, the lyrics were written by Lars [Ratz, bass] and Michael [Ehre, drums] and we feel that we are getting more and more closer with our style of writing, even though both writers kept definitely their own style, as always."
"Nothing to Undo – Chapter VI" track listing:
01. Spineless Scum
04. Straight Into Hell
05. Mental Blindness
07. Way Home
09. Follow the Sign
10. Show Must Go On (QUEEN cover)
