Finland's LULLACRY have set "Killer" as the working title of their forthcoming album, tentatively due in January 2005. "We have made lots of new amazing songs and I must say they're heavier, faster & more hellish heavy rock than ever," stated main songwriter Sami Vauhkonen. "We'll make something like 20-30 songs and choose the best ones and you can definitely wait next album to be the best LULLACRY album to date."
The follow-up to 2003's "Crucify My Heart" will contain the following tracks, among others:
02. Fire Within
03. The Stranger In You
04. The No. 1 Rebel
05. Close Your Eyes
06. Killing Time
07. King Of Pain
09. You Are The One
A new single or EP will precede the album before the end of this year.
