THE DEVIN TOWNSEND BAND drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen has issued the following update on the status of the as-yet-unreleased debut album from his Vancouver, B.C.-based band TERROR SYNDROME:
"We've narrowed it down to a couple awesome guys to mix the album. Both are well known for their jobs. We have found an awesome guy to master our album as well. This guy has worked with some amazing, well-known acts as well. Our debut album will sound sick. We'll announce these people very soon and when they'll get started.
"As for the label/distribution part, I think we're very close to finally making a decision! I want the announcement to happen in November sometime — that's if all goes as planned. Basically, you all have some great news to look forward to and I think it's exciting times for sure!"
Guest musicians on TERROR SYNDROME's upcoming debut CD include Alex Skolnick (TESTAMENT), Trevor Dunn (MR. BUNGLE, FANTOMAS), Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, DEVIN TOWNSEND BAND), Byron Stroud (FEAR FACTORY, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) and Christofer Malmström (DARKANE).
