The Law Completes Recording of New Song

Swedish metal band The Law has issued the following update:

"Many things have happened since we last talked. We have recorded a new track entitled 'High on Power' with the Big balls productions-crew, who will release the track on a compilation disc this summer (with other splendid acts such as TORTURE DIVISION, INVASION, THE GENERALS, KARENSDAG etc etc). I SO wish you could here this new piece since it really gives you an idea of what the upcoming disc will be like. Our plan is to record the follow-up to 'Distorted anthems' in late 2010. 'Intricate thrash and heavy metal' may be a fitting description to our upcoming mayhem."

"In other news, we are currently booking gigs with the magnificent mosh machine F.K.Ü., and so far a couple of swedish and danish gigs are planned - and we'll head out in february/march this year! Can't fucking wait. More info on this will of course be presented here when it's all official! "
