Italian "extreme epic metal" act STORMLORD has issued the following update:

"The recording sessions of our fourth chapters have begun! We entered The Outer Sound Studios (NOVEMBRE, NECRODEATH, KLIMT 1918) one month ago together with the producer Giuseppe Orlando, as usual. We'll keep on working for about twenty days more. We decided not to give you any news until now in order to fully understand how good this work is. This album is such a great bet for us, it'll see STORMLORD going back to an epic sound near to our first album 'Supreme Art Of War' that almost ten years ago was able to influence tons of bands still growing strong in the scene, even if the style of our recent albums will not be missing. You'll find some surprises like an acoustic song, folk instruments and even some sitar parts, everything mixed with an extreme-epic attitude like it was back in the days, but with the nowadays production and a well developed technical skill."

"The Legacy – 17 Years of Extreme Epic Metal", a double "best-of" collection from STORMLORD, will be released on February 22 through Scarlet Records. The first CD contains 13 songs spanning the band's 17-year career as of one of Europe’s most respected metal merchants, including the rare EP "Under the Sign of the Sword", originally released in 1997. The second CD contains a full live show recorded in Montreal on June 14, 2006 during the band's Canadian tour.
