ENGEL, who had previously recorded a self-produced demo that Tue Madsen (MNEMIC, THE HAUNTED etc) mixed at Denmark's Antfarm studios in February, are currently working on new material which is "coming out real strong," according to a posting on the group's web site. New songtitles include "Propaganda", "Shatterday" and "My Hero". In the meantime, you can still download a live performance video shot in the group's rehearsal room of a new track entitled "Someone Died (And Made You God)" at this location (Windows Media required).
