Savage Circus Posts New Song, "The Ordeal," Online

German progressive metal band, SAVAGE CIRCUS, has posted the first song, "The Ordeal," off their new album on their MySpace page. SAVAGE CIRCUS has also posted the following personal letter to their fans:

"Hi to all the good folks,

It’s been a long time... and if you say too long, you are damned right! Well, there is not really one overall reason for this absence; it’s more or less a combination of smaller and bigger things in the life of the individual band members. But there’s been one thing for sure, that struck all of us at the same time: the separation from Thomen. This hit us right in the middle of the first songwriting process for the follow up album to 'Dreamland Manor' and – as you may imagine – was not really a boost to our creativity. This had to be 'digested" for a while...'

"While 'digesting' in Umea, Sweden a lot of things did happen. Jens and Emilio got involved in the annual House Of Metal Festival (where SC played in 2007). This is quite a lot of stuff to take care for and indeed is time consuming. Yet another quite time consuming activity can be reported from Jens: he built a house! And nevertheless Emilio has encountered the maybe by far most time consuming thing in the world: the man got married! Congratulations and welcome to the club!"

"But also in Hamburg time moved on. In early 2006 my 3rd (!) daughter was given birth and she’s just sweet as honey. By now she is 3 years old and started kindergarten in October 2008. This finally gave me back the time I needed so bad to finish up my songwriting for SC! In the year before it has been my job to take care of the little one during the day... I thought, songwriting is best at night, so no problem. Unfortunately I forgot, how much energy such a little thing draws from you. Those of you with kids of their own know, what I am talking about. So this whole thing turned into a more or less unplanned Sabbath year for little Piet. The only thing I managed to do was to play 2 US shows with my other band Iron Savior (check www.iron-savior.com for more details on this) and to come up with a handful of riffs and melodies for the SC songwriting."

"At this point the whole band would like to thank all of you for your patience big time. And your patience shall be rewarded! We are in the final process of the songwriting and a good 90% of the songs are finished and ready to get recorded."

“But it will get even better - Jens and Emilio have already recorded vocals on the first track and they added some pics from the recording that can be found on www.savage-circus.com. So the pre-production of the follow up to the great debut album has started! And as a proof of life you will find the first teaser track "The Ordeal" on www.savage-circus.com, too!"

"So enjoy the first demo-sounds from the forthcoming album and check back this page very soon for more infos!"

"All the best to all of you!
Emilio, Jens, Mike, Yenz and Piet."
