It contains two new tracks — "Rebellion In Nightmareland" and "Burn This City" — which were recently recorded at Abyss studios in Pärlby, outside Ludvika, Sweden with Biggs, who joined the group this past summer.

A new SONIC SYNDICATE album is tentatively due in April/May 2010.

RAISED FIST's fifth album, "Veil Of Ignorance", was released on September 7 via Burning Heart Records. The CD was recorded at Dugout Productions in Uppsala, Sweden with producer Daniel Bergstrand (IN FLAMES, MESHUGGAH). The follow-up to 2006's "Sound Of The Republic" was approached with the same enthusiasm and balls-to-the-wall attitude as before.

RAISED FIST shot a video for the song "Friends & Traitors" in the band's hometown of Luleå.
