Sander Gommans Posts Update On New HDK LP

HDK guitarist Sander Gommans (After Forever/Trllium/Kiske-Sommerville/Ex-MaYaN) posted an update on the forthcoming sophomore effort from Dutch band HDK. The album is the follow up to the 2009 release "System Overload."

The update reads as follows:

"As promised a little update about the follow up of HDK: System Overload. Nearly all the keyboard parts are finished, they just have to be fine tuned a bit for the actual album. It's very cool to work with two keyboard players this time (Uri Dijk and Erik van Ittersum) since they both give a unique input to the songs.

"Koen Herfst is working out the drum parts at the moment, they will kick some serious ass! Tomorrow I´ll visit Geert Kroes to check new vocal parts, they will be recorded under the supervision of Amanda Somerville (Trillium, AVANTASIA) as soon as we can find some time in our schedule. As I mentioned before, I´m a busy man, but there´s been a lot of progress!

"System Overload was full of agression and experiments, this album will be a return to the After Forever sound with more heavy elements-more guitar oriented. The songwriting I did for After Forever, HDK, Trillium and various other projects have led to this record, and I really excited about the input of the awesome musicians I´m working with this time.

"I´ll be posting some previews the upcoming months and I´ll keep you updated.

"Thanks for supporting me even though I´ve been out of the picture when it comes to playing live....really appreciate that! Thanks to you, musicians like me who prefere writing and teaching music, can still release an album once in a while."
