Track 'Dreams Lie Down and Die' is now available to lsiten to below.
Doogie White: "I am not someone who remembers dreams but I guess I must have them. But this song is about the dreams we have for ourselves. Paul Logue sent me a huge rolling riff with a really heavy drum rhythm.

"I wanted to make each verse about the way we feel when our desires or wishes in life veer off in a different path. I was reading the newspaper that a man had killed the girlfriend who had cheated on and then left him. I guess most of us have felt that way but have never actually acted on the impulse.
"So I included the horror of the act of slaughter, the whispering of the last words in the bridge and then the remorse. I guess I would say the first impulse is probably not the one to act on."
The list of guest musicians involved in the recording of 'As Yet Untitled' looks impressive: Drums - Patrick Johansson (Yngwie Malmsteen), Thomas Broman (Glenn Hughes); Keyboards - Derek Sherinian (Black Country Communion), Tony Carey (Rainbow); Bass - Neil Murray (Whitesnake), Greg Smith (Ted Nugent), Paul Logue (Edens Curse); Guitars - Pontus Norgren (Hammerfall), Marcus Jidell (Royal Hunt), Phil Hilborne (Queen Musical), Mick Tucker (Tank); Guest vocals - Patti Russo (Meatloaf, Cher).
The album was recorded at various studios in Florida, Germany, and Scotland but most of the production was handled in Sweden with Pontus Norgren (Hammerfall) at the helm.
Metal Mind Productions set the release date for the 24th of October in Europe and the 8th of November in USA (via MVD).
