STEEL PROPHET: Burning Building Halts Recording Session

STEEL PROPHET have issued the following update on the recording sessions for their new album, entitled "Beware":

"All drum tracks are finished for ten original songs and one cover song. Guitar dubs will start in a day or two. On Sunday we had a strange situation develop when the lights started flickering in the studio. It didn't seem too bad for a few minutes, and we continued to listen back to a track called 'Leatherette'. Eventually, we decided we should save this track before anything happened with the power, but we were too late because the power shut off and we were in darkness. We decided to investigate, but the whole building was pitch black and so we went outside, and as we came out of the door we were hit with an intense heat and smoke the building next to us had erupted in flames! There were about eighty firemen around the building trying to put out the fire. There were about ten fire trucks in front of the studio and the street was closed off. It was complete chaos, and the flames were so high and so close we thought our studio would catch fire too and all the work we had done would be for nothing. Well after a tense hour or so, they got the fire under control and it soon became more smoke than fire. The place was burnt to the ground, but we were very thankful to get out with our skins, equipment and completed tracks! Needless to say that was the end of that day's session."

As previously reported, "Beware" is tentatively due in Europe this summer through Massacre Records. U.S., Asian and South American release dates are still pending.

"Beware" will mark the group's first release to feature new vocalist Nadir D'Priest (ex-LONDON, D'PRIEST) and guitarist Pete Skermetta. Songtitles set to appear on the album include "Heavenly", "Beware" and "Transfusion Vamp".

STEEL PROPHET, who recently parted ways with drummer Karl Rosqvist and replaced him with returning skinsman Kevin Cafferty (STEEL PROPHET's "Messiah" album), released their last studio album, "Unseen", in 2002 through Nuclear Blast Records.
