NOSTRADAMEUS drummer Esko Salow has posted the following message on the band's web site:"Hello Nostras!! Just wanted to tell you that the recordings of the fourth NOSTRADAMEUS album is going as planed. [Guitarist] Jake [Fredén] and [vocalist] Freddy [Persson] recorded their first parts [on Nov. 11] and during that week Jake recorded all his rhythm guitars and Freddy managed to deliver the vocals for seven songs. [Guitarist] Michael [Åberg] joined Jake and Freddy in Malmö the following Tuesday (the 25th) and started to record his guitars, lead and rhythm, and at the same time Freddy & Jake continued with their parts. And by the end of this week Friday the 28th everything was finished except for some additional background vocals that will be recorded in about two weeks. (Might be one or two surprises amongst the background vocals...) I really look forward for this coming release since we all think that this is the heaviest and best NOSTRADAMEUS album ever recorded and I know that you will LOVE IT!! See you on Tour!!" The follow-up to this year's "The Third Prophecy" is being recorded at Roasting House studios in Malmö, Sweden for an early 2004 release through Germany's AFM Records.
