Italian traditional heavy metallers MESMERIZE have completed the recording process for their fourth album, tentatively due in February 2005 through Dragonheart Records. The follow-up to 2002's "Off the Beaten Path" is being recorded in part at drummer Andrea Garavaglia's Octopussy studio with engineer Giovanni Spinotti, who has previously worked with LABYRINTH. Songtitles set to appear on the as-yet-untitled album include "The Burn", "Princess of the Wolves", "Bitter Crop", "Hot Lead, Cold Steel", "Field of Heroes", "Bloody Mary", "Best Place for a Knife", "Windchaser", "Triumph of the Darksword", "Lure of the Temptress" and "Monkeys In Sunday Best".
"We had the pleasure to have a talented young violinist, Vito Gatto, record some great melodies that really enrichen the sound of four songs," the band write on their web site.
"We're beginning the final remix just this week; we're gonna have a forced break next week, so we're planning to have the final result by mid-November. After that, the mix has to be mastered, so we should be able to deliver the finished work to Dragonheart by late November; if everything goes smoothly the album will be released around February.
"We are still working on the cover concept that will also influence the album title, which still has to be decided."
