Word has it they will be writing for their next release...currently looking to hit the studio come spring. Chimaira - in the studio in Ohio (see Chimaira's ARTIST page for more detail). In a nutshell, they started recording in late November, and look to finish recording come early January...and then mixing, and then mastering. goneblind - see Chimaira update above...goneblind, too, is in the studio right now, having started in late November and looking to finish up come early January. However, not in Ohio, goneblind is at 4th Street Studios in L.A. with producer Jim Wirt. Ill Nino - writing away, they are...writing fools, they are to be...word has it, they have already laid down four new tracks to tape during rehearsals. Expect them to record the follow up to their Revolution...Revolucion debut starting February. Killswitch Engage - touring & working on writing for their next release...what will be their first with vocalist the Howard Jones (known in some circles as 'the hammer'). Rumblefish - recording finished...just waiting to get this bad boy mixed. Should happen before the end of the year. Spineshank - in Vancouver right now, doing some overdubs to tracks already laid down...should be finished come 12/22, and then mixing in January. Type O Negative - the band has been in a studio in sweet home Brooklyn recording since November 12th. The recording of this as of yet unnamed release should be completed come late January.
