VINTERSORG mainman Andreas Hedlund (a.k.a. Vintersorg) has issued the following update regarding the group's current activities:"We're working hard on the new material. The songs feel very artistic, some progressive elements are of course there, but it's taken a more symphonic approach. The recording of the piece will take place next year and we're really looking forward to it. With so many ideas and visions, we feel that we can produce a very good album. I've also written material for a MCD that takes a look back to the past, while remaining innovative and inspiring. We plan to to record it in 2005 as well." With regard to his FISSION project, in which he is joined by VINTERSORG live session drummer Benny "Hägge" Hägglund, Hedlund said, "In the FISSION camp everything is great. We have four songs for the next album and are now fine-tuning our sound. So be prepared for a very energetic and thrashy album, where melody is still present. It will have some very haunting moments as well."
