German melodic death/thrash metallers BURDEN OF GRIEF are currently working on material for their new album, tentatively due in early 2010. The follow-up to 2007's "Death End Road" will contain 10 songs, seven of which have already been completed, and will be mixed and mastered by Swedish producer/multi-instrumentalist Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY, BLOODBATH). The limited-edition version of the album will include a bonus CD featuring cover versions of the following eight metal classics:
* IRON MAIDEN - "Aces High"
* METALLICA - "The Four Horsemen"
* PANTERA - "Mouth For War"
* SEPULTURA - "Refuse/ Resist"
* WHITESNAKE - "Fool For Your Loving"
* BLIND GUARDIAN - "Valhalla"
* AC/DC - "Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be"
* THE DOORS - "Break On Through"
On July 13, BURDEN OF GRIEF's debut album, "Haunting Requiems", will be re-released by the Polish label Metal Mind Productions. This remastered re-release comes in a limited, hand-numbered digipack with a new 16-page booklet and four previously unreleased bonus tracks from the band's 1996 demo tape, "My Blood".
BURDEN OF GRIEF released its fourth full-length album, "Death End Road", in March 2007 via Remedy Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Fields of Salvation" was recorded at Krachgarten Tonstudio in Kassel, Germany and was mixed at Jailhouse Studios in Denmark with producer Tommy Hansen (HELLOWEEN, PRETTY MAIDS, HATESPHERE).
