Swede's Faster Katt has issued the following update about the recording of a new album:
"Heydiho! Reporting from the magical shores of the Mekong river, accompanied by an icecold BeerLao, I'm childishly happy and proud to announce the release of four sparkling fresh tunes, including a cover on Manowar's old jawbreaker 'Each dawn I die.' Actually, another one of the songs is also a 'cover', though only a lyrical one, a free translation of an old Swedish classic. See if you can figure it out, if not, ask your grandfather.
"This time, we've really worked together as a band and, in our humble opinion, improved especially on the vocal arrangements, which were put on tape in yours truly's wardrobe (see pictures here). Patric's new oversized vintage-style Gretch drumkit, as always recorded by Chrille in Studio Evil Grill, didn't hurt the sound either.
"Once again, Mattias has done an awesome mixingjob and Jonas whipped together some funky new artwork, and so we ceased the opportunity to pimp up the myspace layout, making two flies pregnant in one blow. Well, hell, enough blabbering, we hope you'll enjoy it as much as we did producing it! All the best!"
Sweden's Faster Katt has issued the following brief update about the process of recording new material:
"Studio update: the drums is finished and this week the bass is coming to its place, maybe....? We are on a little time limit because our singer is going to Asia the 1st of December for 2 months to work on his body and soul...mind and spirit...."

Guitarist Jonas Rydberg of the recently disbanded band Burst has new joined a new project titled Faster Katt. Sample Faster Katt tracks can be heard at the band's MySpace page. Faster Katt also issued the following statement about the band's formation:
"About six months ago, the signs for putting together a full line-up for Faster Katt and make a 'real band' out of it, were finally auspicious. Since our first recording, made in 2005, me and Putte often discussed this when we were drinking, but for some strange reason nothing happened.. Until now, that is! Or, as I said, about six months ago, when the good old jolly band BURST decided to throw in the towel and left our we-go-way-back-friend and evil genius Jonas Rydberg free of duties. Cunning as we are, we quickly enticed him to pick up an axe of ravaging rawk-storms and join forces with us! A couple of months later, Mattias Engström, my dear partner and master of prog-metal-might from MEMFIS, finally managed to escape the Mordor of Wermland, from which we all hail, to live in Gothenburg with us. Hence, he had no choice but to strap on his awesome-to-death Thunderbird and team up.
"So, I had some 'new' material which we arranged and recorded at a pace way faster than katt! The creative skills and the diabolic devotion of our new members was exactly the fix needed to turn this corpse into a zombie again! After some rehearsing we set off to our friend, and drum-sound ninja, Krille's home Evil Grill, to get the drums on tape. After this we recorded the bass-guitars and vocals at home. Very comfortable, non-stressful and cheap. Big thanks to Peter for letting us use your wardrobe, and for McGyvering a golfbag into a microphone-stand. More...
