"That being said, we had a couple tracks left over from those sessions. While I was in the Bay Area this summer, Techno (producer/mixer for NMFTS and the Trumpets EP) and I recorded a couple acoustic songs. I'd written a few more acoustic songs and once I'd finished the mix on TPOI I started tracking a few of them in between doing demos for the next electric album. Techno and I started talking about releasing a short acoustic EP, and I got serious about doing songs for it. More...

Heathen metallers Hauk have issued the following update about recording a new album:
"Still working like a madman to get 'The Path of Ice' finished. Spend the entire day working on the song 'Green.' My mixing philosophy is pretty much start with the drums, and then add instruments one at a time to make sure everything is crystal clear.
"Of course, first things first, I need to make the drums crystal clear. And that ain't easy, especially when Chris is wailing like the madman he is! Making sure the bass drum is crisp and dead on, then adding in snare, then checking fills on the toms, and making sure the overheads aren't bleeding in too much... I get a good sound on the snare, then find out it's also in the mics that were on the toms and hi-hat, so I trim that down and aim for clarity- it ain't easy. But it sure is fun! :D Lots of work, but fun.
"All in all, I'm really happy with where this one is going. We've got a real nice choral sound on the vocals (Uber Props to Kristy Hanson!) and some really sweet solos from Boyd. Plus the usual doomy and death lyrics and my Odinic howl up front. I used an SM7B for the vocals, and it's really sounding good and strong.
"All in all, it's a nice little group of songs. I've got rough mixes of everything except Karma, and that should be done in another week or so. Then polishing, then mastering, then victory. I'll try and have a couple songs up on Myspace soon for y'all to listen too."
The track listing for the album will be as follows: More...

"Just a quick note to say I am alive and well- the trip east was one of truly epic proportions. I've landed in New Haven CT, and am getting up and running. I should be in the new apartment next week, and then finishing up 'The Path of Ice' for release on Itunes. I've got a bunch of new songs written, and I can't wait to start album #6.
"Can we say Workaholic? Yes we can! Hope everyone is well!"

The heathen metal band HAUK (USA) will release their new EP "To Hear the Trumpets Call" on September 19, 2008.
The EP contains 2 brand new songs, a re-recorded metal version of the classic "Lamentation," and a remix of "Raven Wings."
Front man Hauk commented: "This EP for me is really a perfect combination of music and Heathen spirituality. Every song on this album has Heathen Anthem written all over it- they are unrestrained songs about the impending victory of the Gods and their people at Ragnarok. Nothing was held back recording this one- we didn't think a minute about reviews or record labels or anything while we were recording. We just went into the studio and made the music we wanted to make, channeled the Gods and let the full fury of the North Wind rip through our songs. The arrangements were stripped down, sticking with just the live band- no extra fiddles or flutes, just pure guitars, drums, and keyboards. In the end, what we've accomplished is the soundtrack to Ragnarok, a call to arms for all Heathens- No Mercy For the Slain, not now, not ever."
Here is the tracklisting for "To Hear The Trumpets Call":
1. To Hear the Trumpets Call
2. Love Song 4 (Burn Rome)
4. Raven Wings (Thrashing Ravens Remix)
The title track can be listened to for streaming at the band's MySpace page.
