2003-02-04 - Silence? What silence...
As you might have noticed, the band had an extremely busy last year following the release of the "Inwards" album. We played several succesful tours and festivals-shows and therefor we have now decided to fully concentrate on the songwriting for our next album...
As scheduled, we will be recording the next album again with Andy Classen at Stage One Studio in Bühne, Germany. We will be starting to track the new songs around late April and then proceed with the mix by early June.
Our label Nuclear Blast is looking at a September 2003 release for the still untitled 5th album (you might already guess that the title will start off with an "i", right?), so feel free to look forward to that! We have some 8 completely finished new songs and are still working on many more as well as spending time with good brainstorming about possible cover version-choices to use as special bonus tracks. We also plan to be re-recording a song from "Ill-Natured" as bonus track...
Knowing that for a Thrash Metal band like D-S, the most vital things (as well as the one we enjoy the most) is playing as many shows as ever available, it feels sort of weird to totally skip gig options for several months. Hmmm, this might actually be the longest time-off from stages that we have ever had in a row since the band started long years ago?!
Then again, we have chosen to rather spend the time with concentrating on the new song material and making sure to have the album as prepared as possible for the studio! Song titles and other details about the album should follow within the next weeks...
Nevertherless, we have already confirmed some shows for later on in the year, starting on late May with shows in Hungary and Austria:
FR 23.05. Gödöllo [Nearby Budapest] (H) - Trafó Club + Cadaveres De Tortugas, Watch My Dying, Casketgarden & Monastery
SA 24.05. Vienna (A) - Planet Music "(The Return Of) Mosters Of Death" Festival + Shadowcast (CD Presentation) and many other bands, as well as a small metal market, etc. The show starts at 7:30 PM.
There is a chance we might add another show in Austria for Sunday, 25th of May. We should see soon...
Also, some cool festivals will feature Dew-Scented this Summer:
SA 21.06. Herborn (D) - Burger Bürgerhaus + E 605, Lay Down Rotten, Sarx und Final Breath + Accu§er
SA 12.07. "Kaltenbach Open Air": Spital / Semmering-Steiermark (A) + Disbelief, Desaster, Enthroned, Mörk Gryning, Centinex, Belphegor, Suidakra, etc.
SA 19.07. "Steel Meets Steel" Open Air, Castrop Rauxel [More bands TBA]
31.07. - 02.08. "Wacken Open Air Festival", Wacken (D)
This is the first time since 1998 (that was actually the last official show for our previous guitarplayer Shotte...) that we get to play at the biggest European All-Metal festival and we are really looking forward to that! Other bands confirmed to appear there are Slayer (!!!), Sentenced, Assassin (reunion show), Dark Angel, Stratovarius, Vader, Nile, Cradle Of Filth, Iced Earth, The Crown, Dismember and many, many more. Check the festival's website for updates and complete running orders once available!
21.08. - 23.08. "Summer Breeze Festival", Abstgmünd (D)
Another total highlight, as this festival has been growing strongly year by year. We last played there in 2001 and the line up for this year is already looking amazing with acts like In Flames, Darkane, Children Of Bodom, Napalm Death, Amon Amarth, etc. scheduled to play. Nice...
There are several more shows in the works and to be announced soon, so please feel free to keep visiting the section "Shows" on the website for further details!
Other than that, Dew-Scented have also been confirmed to appear at this year's edition of the mighty X-Mas Festival Tour, booked by Metallysee Agency. The tour will last 15 shows (starting on the second week of December) and it covers the main Central European Metal-Clubs. More info on these shows should be available soon, but looking at the tentavive Line-Up of bands (including plenty of old touring friends of ours...), this is promising to become a total KILLER:
"X-Mas Festivals 2003":
Hypocrisy / Destruction / Vader / Nile / Dew-Scented / Disbelief / Misery Index

What else? There is a DVD/Video Compilation release of last year's With Full Force festival which includes a live sample of Dew-Scented's set ("Life Ending Path") and also Party-San Festival has released a Live Video Compilation of 2002 featuring D-S material. Make sure to check those out, in case you are interested!
Ok, this is all in news for this moment. Take care and keep it heavy in 2003...
