Die reunierten Thrash Metaller DEFIANCE haben folgendes Update zum Stand der Dinge gepostet:
"As of yesterday, DEFIANCE has finished tracking the new album for Candlelight Records! Candlelight is looking at a September release date for first album from DEFIANCE since 1992's 'Beyond Recognition', released by Roadrunner Records.
"We finished up at Trident Studios on Sunday with Jim [Adams; guitar] and Mike [Kaufmann; bass] completing the last of their parts, and Steev [Esquivel; also of SKINLAB] came down to help arrange some last-minute additions to the lead sections with Jim on a couple of songs. Snake came by in the afternoon to deliver all the completed vocals he recorded at his studio in Berkeley, Greendot Studios.
"All we have left is to get Glen's [Alvelais; FORBIDDEN, TENET, TESTAMENT] solos and to have Juan [Urteaga, producer] finish mixing and mastering the album!
"DEFIANCE is working with Travis Smith on the album cover artwork and concept.
"Once the album is released DEFIANCE will be looking to support the effort in Europe and perhaps the U.S., if the right opportunity arises."
