SINERGY To Record New Album In February

Finland's SINERGY will enter the studio on February 1 for at least six weeks to begin recording their fourth full-length album, tentatively due in June 2004 through Nuclear Blast Records.

"Me and [guitarist] Alexi [Laiho, also in CHILDREN OF BODOM] spent the first two days I was back in Finland [after a recent two-month trip to the States] showing each other new riffs we had, and then we started rehearsing with the band a few days ago," SINERGY singer Kimberly Goss wrote in a recent online posting. "Let me tell you, I'm soooooooo pleased with what we have so far! I can't wait for everyone to hear it!

"The lyrics I've written so far on this next album are not as dark as they were on [last year's] 'Suicide By My Side', but there won't be any lyrics about flowers and rainbows either. [laughs] And definitely no lyrics about elves, kings, swords, battles, thunder or steel. [more laughs]

"We're gonna try some cool new things that we've never done before, like for instance putting a bass solo somewhere in at least one song (or maybe even two or three, who knows?). So it would be two guitar leads and a bass lead all back to back. It should sound killer since our new bassist can do with a bass what Alexi and Roope [Latvala, also in CHILDREN OF BODOM] can do with a guitar!

"So basically we'll be writing and rehearsing new material whenever [CHILDREN OF BODOM] is having breaks from the rest of their tours this year. Then in January we'll do some non-stop rehearsing just before entering the studio. Speaking of studio, we haven't decided where we'll record yet, but we've been exploring many options and we'll make a decision by the end of this month [August]."

In related news, Goss will publish her autobiography in Finland (initially available only in Finnish) in June 2004 to coincide with SINERGY's next album release. As yet untitled, the book will chronicle the life and times of Kimberly, revealing many exclusive stories and facts about her life that she has never even spoken of in any interview. It will dig deep into her early childhood and go onward to tell about the struggles she's faced as a woman in the heavy metal business. You will read stories of child abuse, life growing up in America, her early years in the metal scene, her radical decision to leave her home country in an attempt to turn her passion for heavy metal into a career, exclusive stories about what is was like playing in her first bands and touring with them, the ugly side of the music industry, her personal life, the formation of SINERGY, and much, much more. The book will also feature many never before seen pictures from her childhood and of her adventures traveling throughout the world with various bands. The biographer also plans to interview many other people in Kimberly's life — past and present, friends and foes — in order to present "more than just Kimberly's version of the events chronicled in the book."
