It has been quite in the last couple of weeks, the release promotion on “Inside of the Machine” has ended, so I looked after and met with Goran in order to see what´s going on…
Goran, first of all, do you have any Band-related news for us?
– Well, I have spent the last four months writing new songs and at this very moment, I have enough good material and ideas for the next album. The songs have been passed on to the guys and Gert, Heiko & Sven are working on their parts, but is actually a process where everyone looks to get the best out of it, we communicate and discuss, re-arrange some parts here and there before we finish the pre-production and move to the recording process.
When do you expect to start the recordings?
– There are some conceptual thoughts about the record that we I to finish first and some general decisions on questions about the vocal crew, production studio and mostly the time schedule of all involved persons needed for finishing the production. Once this has been done we will have all relevant information to announce a realistic date…
