After finishing his studies to become an audio engineer and getting his life back on track again, Erik started re-recording the ten songs which had already been recorded as demos, but were never released. Within one month he did all the drum and synth programming, playing guitars, and screeching and grunting his guts out. During that time he was supported by BjÃ¶rn and Alf as assistant engineers, and both of them were so enthusiastic about the material that they asked him to evolve the project to a real band. The drummer's place was filled by Marc, and the guys were ready to kick ass live on stage!! For unknown reasons, Marc left the band in August 2004, but life went on without him.
The new man behind the kit is Andreas Schneider, and he's performing very good.
Since early December the four are working on new material to record the new masterpiece in late 2005. And you can be sure: It's gonna be great.
