Virgin Steele's David DeFeis has sent over another exclusive studio update (here's the first and the second update) from the recording sessions for the band's new album, "The Black Light Bacchanalia," indicating that they're nearly done recording and will soon be mixing it.

We are currently completing the remaining vocals, stray bits of orchestration and guitar solos....It looks like we will be heading into mix mode quite soon, and will hopefully remain on schedule! I am working non-stop to meet our deadline. New studio gear will be arriving this week and will certainly enhance what we are attempting to achieve. The album as I stated earlier is quite long, and also the bonus disc will also be pretty lengthy, as the spoken bio that I am doing is nearly 30 minutes at the moment...I hope to not simply have the bio sound like a dry dull history or science class assignment. I hope to add bits and pieces of music in there that will connect the various sections. I may use various tracks from the album, like an orchestra section or strings, that you normally would not hear that well, what with all the guitars and drums wailing away...so...it will hopefully prove entertaining.

The cover artwork is nearly ready. As I mentioned we are doing 3 distinct yet related covers. The images I have used here come from my travels in the world of History, Mythology, Anthropology and the Occult. There will be strange wood etchings used on all 3, that depict how the later "new religious" folk saw the earlier Gods & Goddess & their worship...

Anyway...it is a long hot summer here, as there is no air conditioning in the studio...and I am currently gushing water like monsoon season....It is time for one very quick leap into a nearby ocean, and then more black coffee and vocals....I shall switch to wine for the evening...

Thanks for listening and all the absolute best to you ALL!
