CALLENISH CIRCLE plan to enter the studio again in January 2003 to record the follow-up to the "Flesh Power Dominion" album. Their 4th album "My Passion, Your Pain" will be recorded again at Stage One Studio with producer Andy Classen while the artwork is supposed to be done once more by Niklas Sundin. Some new songtitles are ‘Dwelling In Disdain’, ‘Soul Messiah’, ‘This Truculent Path’, ‘Once More’ and title-track ‘How My Passion Is Your Pain’. Musically the new material is supposed to be in the same vein as "Flesh Power Dominion" but probably even more intense and more extreme, without loosing the sense for catchy melodies and atmosphere which always have been trademarks in the band’s sound. Callenish Circle is furthermore confirmed to take part on the annual "No Mercy" Easter Festivals in 2003. Other confirmed bands are Testament, Marduk, Pro Pain, Nuclear Assault, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, Malevolent Creation, Graveworm and Arkhon Infaustus. Another as yet undisclosed co-headlining act will reportedly be added to the bill (rumours are speaking about Morbid Angel or Dark Angel). Former Chemical Breath bassplayer Rene Rokx will be the new bassplayer of Callenish Circle. He’s replacing Roland Schuschke and already played with the band on the Stonehenge Festival (NL), Party San Open Air (GER), Brutal Assault Festival (CZECH), in Hof Ter Lo / Antwerp with Dimmu Borgir (BEL) and on their latest mini-tour in the Benelux with Primordial and Mercenary. Painkiller Records from Belgium will again license the rights to release the CALLENISH CIRCLE album on vinyl. The release is expected in late 2002. The album will be in luxury double gate-fold and in a limited edition of only 500 copies. More info at Painkiller Records: laurent@painkiller-records.com
