SPIRITUAL BEGGARS guitarist Michael Amott has posted the following studio report on the band's web site:

"As usual, recording here at Studio Fredman is wild and strange experience. Mr. Fredrik Nordström is crazier than ever!

"In the 4 days we have been here, we have put down all the basic tracks (we are recording drums, guitars, bass and keyboards live on to 2" tape) and it is sounding really warm, big and heavy! Our producer, Fredrik Nordström, has got a phenomenal sound out of Ludwig Witt's brand new custom built (by himself!) kit… and of course Ludwig is beating the living shit out of the drums (the 28" bass drum sounds HUGE) and cymbals as usual — it sounds very killer so far!! It's a really different way of recording…no pro-tools and/or triggering of drums. This is the old-school way…like SABBATH, PURPLE, HEEP etc used to do things back when heavy metal was born…it's fun and very satisfying! Today we are going through all the bass tracks and checking if there are improvements to be made there. Monday will be a keyboard day — time to lay down the Hammond, Mellotron, Fender Rhodes stuff, that's always a fun part of the recording, Per IS the keyboard wiz!"

The follow-up to 2002's "On Fire" is tentatively due before the end of the year.
