Yngwie Malmsteen and drummer Patrick Johansson reportedly went into Malmsteen's Miami, Florida studio in July to begin recording demos for the next YNGWIE MALMSTEEN'S RISING FORCE album. Doogie White (ex-RAINBOW) will once again handle the lead vocals on the CD, which is expected to surface in early 2007.
YNGWIE MALMSTEEN recently completed a U.S. tour in support of his last two projects, "Unleash the Fury" and "Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra" DVD.
"Unleash the Fury", which hit stores July 26, 2005 through Spitfire Records, has been receiving rave reviews from critics and fans alike and has even been hailed as one of his best works to date. Also released last year was Yngwie's long-awaited "Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra" DVD, which was filmed in 2001 with the New Japan Philharmonic, conducted by Taizo Takemoto. Malmsteen has performed his concerto suite live with an orchestra just seven times. An interview with Malmsteen is included as a special bonus feature.
