Belgian power metallers FIREFORCE are preparing to enter The Prophecy Music Factory studios in Germany to record their new album. Greek producer Roberto Dimitri Liapakis (MYSTIC PROPHECY, SUICIDAL ANGELS, DEVIL’S TRAIN, CRYSTAL TEARS) will helm the effort, which is tentatively due in early 2013.
FIREFORCE was recently rejoined by guitarist Steve Deleu, who has previously toured with Blaze Bayley (IRON MAIDEN, WOLFSBANE) and Tim “The Ripper” Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN).
FIREFORCE‘s latest album, “March On”, was released in March 2011 via 7Hard. The CD artwork was designed by Eric Philippe, who has previously worked with RHAPSODY, RIOT, MOB RULES, TNT and many others.
Formed in August 2008 by former DOUBLE DIAMOND members Flype and Erwin, FIREFORCE‘s lineup was completed by THB (drums; ex-DD), Joeri (guitars; ex-SELF INFLICTED) and Patrik (bass; ex-GRINNING GHOUL). In February 2009, the band entered the studio to record a four-song EP with producer Roberto Dimitri Liapakis. Joeri subsequently decided to leave FIREFORCE for family reasons and was replaced by Steve Deleu (ex-GWYLLION).
