Astral Winter Comments On Upcoming "Winter Enthroned" Release

Australia's Astral Winter has checked in with the following update about the release of the "Winter Enthroned" album:

"Long time no update. For people still following this I apologize for the lengthy delays in the Winter Enthroned release, but all I can say is each delay is for the better in terms of how it will sound in the end. As for the progress, pretty much every song is finished recording on my end, minus a few solos which shouldn't take long to finish.

"I now have a kick ass drummer lined up in Brisbane, whose going to be recording in mid January. And also have someone from a studio whose going to do a final mix and master for me. Phil should also be doing vocals now replacing me in this position. I'm currently working out all the vocal melodies and making demo vocal tracks for Phil to base his off.

"If all goes according to plan (which if history tells us anything, it wont) this should be done in a few months. I'd like to remind everyone that the 2 album preview songs are just that, they're previews, not final versions. They will sound a lot better on the actual album.

"As for the actual release, I was contacted by Octobers Mist Records a few months ago and they're interested in releasing 1000 copies of Winter Enthroned. They offered to release it this month, but I wasn't ready yet. So April 2011 will be the estimated release date.

"In other news I've also been writing songs for the 2nd full length album release 'Forest Of Silence' (working title). There's about 40 minutes worth of material so far, with each song averaging about 10 minutes in length. The songs have a slightly darker more atmospheric feel to them. I'm aware that myspace seems to be slowly dying so I might try and get a website going or something in which to use as a primary source over this. Thank you to all! And apologies again for the delays/lack of updates. I'll more then likely have this album out before 'Time' by Wintersun comes out."
