VANDEN PLAS: Studio Footage Posted Online

German progressive metallers VANDEN PLAS will release their new album, "The Seraphic Clockwork", on June 4 via Frontiers Records. The eight-song concept CD was produced by the bandmembers themselves at Bazement Studio with engineer Markus Teske.

A drum solo by Andreas Lill which was recorded during the "The Seraphic Clockwork" sessions can be viewed below.

The "The Seraphic Clockwork" storyline was written by Andy Kuntz and tells about a journey in time. The protagonist who lives in 16th century Rome comes under the spell of an Old Testament prophecy. He travels back to Jerusalem in the year 33 anno Domini where he must face his God-given destiny.

Commented guitarist Stephan Lill: "I think that my preference for heavier bands shines through more than ever before. Heavy riffs, elaborate keyboard and orchestra arrangements plus catchy hook lines come together in a perfect symbiosis which marks VANDEN PLAS' characteristic style. I feel that we were much more adventurous on 'The Seraphic Clockwork' than ever before."

VANDEN PLAS' last album, "Christ 0", was released in 2006 via InsideOut Music.
