Dallas traditional metal act, featuring Ex-Omen members George Call (vocals) and Danny White (drums), have announced that the band's forthcoming sixth release will be entitled "Fire Eater." The album is set to drop on September 27th via Pure Steel Records. The album is the first release since 2007's "Absolute Power."
"Fire Eater" is described as powerful with lots of drive and passion, as with the band's former releases. Melodic and straight heavy metal with a typical ASKA sound, George’s distinctive, rough and high power-voice, perfectly placed high-pitched screams, and some classic Maiden-Twin-leads: everything that a metal fan might wish for can be found on this newest release.
The track list for "Fire Eater" is:
1. Everyone Dies
2. Dead Again
4. Son Of A God
6. Harlot Of Eden
7. Red Cell
8. The Ripper (Judas Priest Cover)

Texan metal band Aska has issued the following update:
"We've been a little inactive here on myspace of late. All for a good reason though: We've been in the studio steadily working on our sixth CD release which is geared for an early second quarter 2010 release!"
"And since it's Christmas time we wanted to give you a little present: We've put up one of the new songs, 'HARLOT OF EDEN,' for your listening pleasure. Get your sneak peek in while you can and turn it up loud. This track is unmixed and unmastered but you can still see that we're messing around!" More...
