SONS OF SEASONS has finished mixing its debut album, "Gods Of Vermin", at Mastersound Studios in Fellbach, Germany for a spring release via Napalm Records. EPICA singer Simone Simons — who happens to be Oliver Palotai's girlfriend — has confirmed that she makes a guest appearance on the album.

Check out a couple of short audio samples on the band's MySpace page.

The third in a series of behind-the-scenes clips from SONS OF SEASONS can be viewed below. This clip focuses on the vocal-recording sessions with singer Henning Basse (METALIUM, FIREWIND).

SONS OF SEASONS is:

Oliver Palotai (KAMELOT, DORO, BLAZE) - Keyboards, Guitar
Daniel Schild (BLAZE) - Drums
Jürgen Steinmetz - Bass
Henning Basse (METALIUM, FIREWIND) - Vocals

Formed in January 2007, SONS OF SEASONS was launched as a "melting point" for all of Oliver Palotai's skills, as a musicians, composer and producer.

The group's first singer, Tijs Vanneste (OCEANS OF SADNESS), proved to be a great musician, but the band's future touring plans didn't fit the tight working schedule at his job, resulting in his departure. However, some of the songs on SONS OF SEASONS' debut album are said to have been inspired by his ideas.
