NOCTURNAL RITES bassist Nils Eriksson has posted the following message on the band's official web site:"Just dropping by to let you know that we are still alive (not the song) and well. Songwriting is going very well indeed and the album is shaping up to be a mother of metal. We have some rough plans as to when/where we'll record, but still everything is in the planning phase. We'll be back very soon with some pictures from our pre-production recordings and maybe a few songtitles and hints in general." NOCTURNAL RITES' latest album, "Grand Illusion", was released in September 2005 via Century Media Records. The follow-up to 2004's "New World Messiah" was recorded and mixed at Toontrack Studio in Umeå, Sweden and features guest appearances by Stefan Elmgren (HAMMERFALL), Jens Johansson (STRATOVARIUS), Henrik Danhage (EVERGREY), Kristoffer W. Olivius (NAGLFAR) and the Swedish cross-country skiing world champion, Per Elofsson.
