DEVIL'S TRAIN Begins Work On New Album

DEVIL'S TRAIN — the band featuring MYSTIC PROPHECY mainman/producer Roberto Dimitri Liapakis, ex-STRATOVARIUS drummer Jörg Michael, guitarist Lakis Ragazas, and ex-SYMFONIA/STRATOVARIUS bassist Jari Kainulainen — has commenced the songwriting process for its sophomore album, to be, once again, recorded at Prophecy & Music Factory Studios in Germany with Liapakis in the producer chair. The CD is expected sometime next year via earMUSIC, the Hamburg, Germany-based international rock label which is part of Edel Group.

Commented Liapakis: " Once again, it will be a feast of pure rock 'n' roll, with all the heaviness, and, as always, full of heart and soul. But at the same time, we feel like we are taking everything to the next level in terms of composition, flavor and edge. The four of us have a great chemistry together, and this will show once more, only a lot more."

DEVIL'S TRAIN is already scheduling new concerts for 2013.

The band's self-titled debut album was released in February 17 via earMUSIC.

DEVIL'S TRAIN is a project Liapakis had been working on with Greek guitarist Lakis Ragazas for a year and as soon as Michael heard it, he asked to become part of it as the group's drummer.

Liapakis previously stated about the formation of DEVIL'S TRAIN: "I am rock and roll down to my veins and I always had diverse influences in my music, a great part of which are expressed in the music I write with MYSTIC PROPHECY. However, the style of music I have been preparing for DEVIL'S TRAIN with Lakis Ragazas isn't the style that would fit MYSTIC PROPHECY and this is why I decided to initiate a side band. Luckily, other people with whom I have common musical background share my vice for rock 'n' roll and Jörg, as I found out when we toured together [in] January [2010], is one of them."
