2003-07-09 00:00 - WRITING OF SIXTH ALBUM CONTINUES:
The writing of the long awaited sixth BAL-SAGOTH album is now entering its most intensive phase, with recording scheduled to begin during the late summer.
The sixth opus will take fans on a darkly sublime voyage to the very frontiers of primal horror and extradimensional malevolence. And old favourites, such as the long awaited continuation of the Obsidian Crown saga from "Starfire Burning..." , will also appear on the new album. Fans of all five BAL-SAGOTH albums to date will find something on the new opus to both thrill and enthrall them.
The album will be released through Nuclear Blast late in 2003 or early 2004, and will be a fitting opus to mark the momentous occaision of TEN GLORIOUS YEARS OF THE MIGHTY BAL-SAGOTH.

"THE POWER COSMIC" OFFICIAL LYRIC BOOKLET... AT LAST!
All who lamented the lack of a full lyrical supplement for the fourth album "The Power Cosmic" will be pleased to know that there is now a new edition of the album available which contains a full colour 12 page lyric booklet.
This new edition of the fourth album is available on CD and is sublicensed from Nuclear Blast by Irond Ltd. for sale in Russia, Ukraine, Baltic States and Belarus. (The lyrics are printed in English.) Check out http://www.irond.ru for more.

BAL-SAGOTH COMICS:
Work on the series of graphic novels set within the BAL-SAGOTH lyrical universe is also continuing. As an exclusive prelude to these stories, the Official Bal-Sagoth Website will soon be unveiling several pages of BAL-SAGOTH comics written by Byron and illustrated by official band artist Martin Hanford. Watch for them in a future site update! http://www.bal-sagoth.com
Additionally, the first prose novella written by Byron and set within the world of the BAL-SAGOTH lyrics is nearing completion. This thrilling story will significantly expand the adventures of Caylen-Tor and his epic struggle against the armies of the sorceress Zyrashana, a tale which first appeared in the song "To Dethrone The Witch-Queen Of Mytos K'unn (The Legend Of The Battle Of Blackhelm Vale)" on the album "Starfire Burning Upon The Ice-Veiled Throne Of Ultima Thule".
Also, fans of the BAL-SAGOTH stories will be pleased to know that a totally revamped and expanded Glossary of all the characters, places, events, artifacts, etc. appearing in the tales will soon be unveiled at the Official Bal-Sagoth Website, including new information from the fifth and sixth albums.
Additionally, a new and comprehensive version of Byron's complete BAL-SAGOTH lyrics incorporating all six albums and featuring special extended editions of the fourth album's stories (TPC ver. 1.5) will be uploaded soon at bal-sagoth.com to co-incide with the new special edition Glossary.

MUSIC TO ROLE-PLAY TO:
BAL-SAGOTH keyboardist Jonny Maudling has recently been working as part of a team of composers creating music for a new MMORPG (Massive Multi-Player Online Role Playing Game) called Adellion. Visit the official Adellion site for more info on this epic fantasy game: http://www.adellion.com
