DESTINY: In Re-Recording Mode

Long-running Swedish metallers DESTINY have almost completed the basic tracks for the re-recording of the band's debut album, "Beyond All Sense", originally released almost twenty years ago. On DESTINY's most recent album, "Future of the Past" (yet to be released outside of Scandinavia and the U.K.), Mats Olauson guested on keyboards on the title track. According to Stefan Björnshög, DESTINY's bass player and only original member, "We might approach Mats again to play keyboards on 'Beyond All Sense 2005', if he is available. On the other hand, we plan to expand the band from a five piece to a six piece band, adding a permanent keyboardist. If we can find one fast enough he or she could be featured on the album. It would be great if we could find a female keyboardist that also was a god singer to add an extra dimension to the music. The important thing is the keys though, so any one interested, male or female, should contact DESTINY through [email protected]"

"Beyond All Sense 2005" is scheduled for release on March 14, 2005, twenty years after the original album release (March 13, 1985). "If everything goes as planned, we will also have a special twentieth anniversary (of DESTINY's first release) concert in Gothenburg, March 13, 2005," Stefan writes. "All former members will be invited, at least the once we can get hold of. Hopefully all the guitarists and singers will guest on one song each of their choice. Of course this is a big project and it might fall through but it would be a cool both for the band and the fans if it can happen.

"At this time, we will, however, concentrate on playing live as much as possible to promote the new album 'Future of the Past' (GMR). In between gigs we will continue to work on a second album of re-recordings called 'Found Somewhere In Time'. So far we have completed all the drum tracks for that album. It will feature mostly songs from 'Nothing Left to Fear' and probably two songs from 'Atomic Winter' as well as four previously unreleased DESTINY songs from the eighties with new lyrics by Kristoffer Göbel. A 2005 release is expected.
