Lyrically woven around the tribalism of the Middle East and expanding terror," "Damascus Steel" will feature a guest appearance by Mirai (SIGH). A May release via Supernal Music is expected.

The third THE MEADS OF ASPHODEL album, tentatively titled "The Passion and Death of Iesous", is scheduled for release in late 2005/early 2006. According to the band, "The album will document the last days of the Christian Messiah. The concept will utilize non-canonical works as well as the Gospels in piecing together one of the greatest of all human moments. The concept is one Metatron has been studying for more years than one would care to recall, to separate myth from fact, thus telling the story applied to a mortal Jew and troublesome Zealot set against a ruthless Roman world order."
