- Cynic will release a new album Kindly Bent to Free Us soon and apparently it's very proggish,
- The all girl Finnish group Indica return with Shine so a bit of pop to look forward to,
- Within Temptation have Hydra due for release featuring many guest stars,
- The Smoke Fairies return with the imaginatively title Smoke Fairies in April,
- Lydia Loveless follows up her raucous Indestructible Machine from two years ago
- And finally Blueneck promise a new as yet untitled long player
hope springs eternal though that the Nephilim may rouse themselves one more time but it's never worth holding your breath on that !
