Guitarist Mike Wead (MERCYFUL FATE, KING DIAMOND) has teamed up with longtime friends Snowy Shaw (KING DIAMOND, DREAM EVIL, NOTRE DAME), Sharlee D'Angelo (MERCYFUL FATE, ARCH ENEMY, WITCHERY) and Simon Johansson (MEMORY GARDEN, ABSTRAKT ALGEBRA) in a brand new band called FIREGOD. A singer for the project has yet to be announced.

"I'm more than thrilled to be joined by some of the guys I consider to be the most creative and talented in Scandinavia," Wead said in an official statement. "Me and Simon [have] been working really hard for almost two years writing and demoing something like 40-45 tracks... These tracks will be the perfect frame for what I'm sure will become a concept album that will stand out among the rest! People [who are] into our older bands as well as our current ones WILL NOT be disappointed!"

FIREGOD expect to record a full-length album later in the year for a tentative early 2004 release.
