Heathen metallers Hauk have issued the following update about recording a new album:

"Hail all!

"Still working like a madman to get 'The Path of Ice' finished. Spend the entire day working on the song 'Green.' My mixing philosophy is pretty much start with the drums, and then add instruments one at a time to make sure everything is crystal clear.

"Of course, first things first, I need to make the drums crystal clear. And that ain't easy, especially when Chris is wailing like the madman he is! Making sure the bass drum is crisp and dead on, then adding in snare, then checking fills on the toms, and making sure the overheads aren't bleeding in too much... I get a good sound on the snare, then find out it's also in the mics that were on the toms and hi-hat, so I trim that down and aim for clarity- it ain't easy. But it sure is fun! :D Lots of work, but fun.

"All in all, I'm really happy with where this one is going. We've got a real nice choral sound on the vocals (Uber Props to Kristy Hanson!) and some really sweet solos from Boyd. Plus the usual doomy and death lyrics and my Odinic howl up front. I used an SM7B for the vocals, and it's really sounding good and strong.

"All in all, it's a nice little group of songs. I've got rough mixes of everything except Karma, and that should be done in another week or so. Then polishing, then mastering, then victory. I'll try and have a couple songs up on Myspace soon for y'all to listen too."

The track listing for the album will be as follows:

1. Green
2. City of Fallen Angels
3. The Ghost of Johnny Cash
4. Frostbite
5. Cold (Love Song #5)
6. Hookers and Blow
7. Gasoline
8. All Souls
9. Crossroads
10. Karma
