We found this latest update on the MySpace page of Denmark’s eminent doomsters:

We think that now is the time to let you in on what is currently going on in camp Saturnus…

As you might know we went through a substantial ”re-grouping” last year. Thomas and Brian is of course still in the band handling vocals and bass while lead guitarist Rune Stiassny, who already participated in two European tours, also is a full-blooded member of Saturnus. We are looking forward to present our drummer and a rhythm guitarist as well when the time comes.

While we are humble towards the achievements of the past we are at the same time confident that we are able to carry on the flame and create a new Saturnus album. When exactly a new album will see the light of day we can’t say for sure. But what we can say is that we are currently i the process of writing new songs and that we will do some pre-recording for our album this Spring.

The new material – in our opinion – is promising indeed. But if you would like a peek listen as to how it actually sounds like we have uploaded a youtube clip at this site from our performance of the new song ”Wind Torn” in Madrid last fall. We hope you like it… (our former drummer Jesper and Martin from Nightlight/Iron Fire helped us out on this tour – thank you!).

Season of Mist just signed the first South American band of the label's history! We are happy to welcome Chile's MAR DE GRISES to the roster. The band's third full-length album should be released later this year.
"We are very happy about this deal with Season of Mist", the band comments. "For a young band like Mar de Grises, it is really exciting to be part of an impressive roster with big names such as Morbid Angel, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Mayhem and Cynic, among many others. We are also proud to be the first Ibero-American band working with this company. It is an important motivation to continue composing this kind of music on the other side of the world, in Chile. This partnership with Season of Mist represents a big step for us. It is exactly what we were looking for, as it enables us to share our music with more metalheads than ever before! We are nearly done composing the new album and are about to start the recording process. We couldn't wish for a better incentive than to know we will have the best support for our upcoming campaigns. We can't wait to come back to Europe!"
