Labyrinth are currently working hard on the songwriting for their highly anticipated comeback album, which is planned for release on Frontiers Music Srl in 2017.
"We have written, so far, seven complete songs which we are very pleased with," says guitar player Olaf Thorsen. "We have some very heavy and fast songs and a few more proggy and melodic. We will end up writing 10 or 11 songs for the new album. We think we know what the fans are expecting from us and I am absolutely confident that everyone will love the new songs. There are lots of killer melodies and the sound will be definitely and recognizably 100% Labyrinth!"
Labyrinth's reunion line-up features founding members Olaf Thorsen and Andrea Cantarelli on guitars and the return of Roberto Tiranti on lead vocals along with none other than John Macaluso (Yngwie Malmsteen, James LaBrie, Riot, Symphony X, Starbreaker, TNT and ARK) on drums, Oleg Smirnoff (Eldritch, Vision Divine, Death SS) on keyboards, and Nik Mazzucconi on bass.
"The new line-up is stronger than ever!" continues Olaf. "Me, Andrea and Roberto are enthusiastic for the contributions that the new guys are bringing to the band and their style will certainly enhance the Labyrinth sound and bring it into 2016 and beyond!"
Labyrinth's first show with this new line-up will be at the Frontiers Metal Festival at the Live Music Club in Trezzo Sull’Adda on October 30th. The band will be exclusively playing their entire hit album Return To Heaven Denied plus a few more fan favorites!
More international shows are planned for next year in support of the release of the new album.
