Hi everybody!! This has been an extremely full week as many things occured for the band!

Nick's new guitar is on it's way aftersome modifications made by Halo Guitars and it should arrive in time for the recordings.

Fragiskos (drums) is beginning the recording session in Saturday at Esoteron Studios (GR) and we hope that by the end of the month all guitars, bass and drums will be finished and we'll enter Angelight Studios for the keyboards and vocals session.

Keyboards are right now being rearranged and new stuff is being added as well as some vocal lines from choirs and a female vocalist.

In August some of us will travel to Germany to mix and master the album with the well known Markus Teske (Symphony X, Vanden Plas, Mob Rules, Red Circuit) at Bazement Studios.

We try also to aproach organisers and bands from abroad to book some live shows and we hope to achieve booking some live shows outside of Greece.

In the forth coming album, entitled "Hunters" we hope to have also some guset appearnces, aside from Markus Teske playing a keyboard solo. Contacts are being made and we hope to soon have more info.

The complete tracklist if the new album (with the 2 untitled songs, which are baptized by now) will be :

1. Hunters
2. Powerlust
3. The Fires Burning Bright
4. Dead Within
5. Lie Down Free
6. Golden Wings
7. Fall Into Oblivion
8. Hear Me Calling
9. Duat (Land Of The Dead)
10. Timechaser
11. .com-fusion

Of course changes might be made. Also in the new album we will try to include a video clip for one track as well a "making of" clip, all included in a multimedia section with new photos and info on the band.

More good news from the X-Piral camp. This time the news is about Nick and a great opportunity that occurred for him and the band.

Some weeks ago Nick was given the chance to sign an endorsement contract with Halo Guitars from California, US. Nick was very excited about that since he was planning to buy one of those guitars. After a short period of discussions with Halo Guitars, Nick just yesterday signed the endorsement contract. Right now his new PT-VII is being modified to match his needs and after receiving it a photo session will follow for commercial purposes. The timing seems to be just right since he will start recording the new album by the time his new guitar arrives.

Nick wanted to state that we was really amazed by the professionalism and the way all the people at Halo Guitars made him feel really nice and comfortable while the discussions were taking place. Nick sends a big thank you to all the people at Halo Guitars for this unique experience!
