The follow-up to last year's stellar "The Great Bazaar" (reviewed here) is about to be officially tracked! Subterranean Masquerade just issued this message online to fan:

"We are excited to let you guys know that in a few days we enter the studio to record our 3rd and new full-length album. We don't want to reveal the title just yet but we can say that this album is taking everything you enjoy from Subterranean Masquerade up a notch. It's heavy, complex, rich and full with so much information, it will be a shame to even try to categorize it. We will keep you updated and post photos from the studio from time to time. We are also working on a European tour prior our show at the ProgPower festival in September - so stay tuned for live dates as well.
Wish us luck!"

Guitarist and songwriter Tomer Pink comments: “After a year of the tunes playing in my head, a challenging journey to India, months of band rehearsals and lots of editing and rearranging, this is finally happening and I couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome. This album is so schizophrenic sometimes I wonder if the tunes are playing with me or the other way around."

"Writing and arranging this new album was a completely different experience than the one I had with 'The Great Bazaar',” says keyboardist Shai Yallin. “With the Bazaar, we had written the album not as a band but rather as individual players; I actually only met Tomer and the guys after the album was recorded, for a PR photography session we held after Kjetil’s vocal sessions. This time around, we’re a real band. My parts have evolved during rehearsals and practice sessions. Some parts were written for me by other players, while I wrote more string parts than in the previous album and even adding some brass and accordion parts. Add to that Tomer’s insistence that we do not repeat ourselves and you get some really interesting combinations of timbres and instruments."
