NEW VANDEN PLAS ALBUM: 12 SONGS ALREADY COMPOSED:
Press Release / A new Vanden Plas album is on the horizon! Stephan has already composed 12 new songs and Andy is working on the lyrics and vocal lines. There will also be more songs coming from Günter and Andy. Which songs and how many will be featured on the cd will also depend on the story. The band is thinking about a release in fall 2009. Once again, the band will work together with engineer Markus Teske and the album will be recorded at Bazement Studio near Wiesbaden, Germany.
Andy Kuntz: "The new Vanden Plas CD will once again be a concept album. It is also planned to bring it on the theatre stage one day. The working title is 'The Journey of the Watchman' and The story unfolds in Rome in three different time periods. It is about the watchmaker 'Tao' who, under strange circumstances, takes possession of a magic chronograph. This clock enables him to 'stab' a hole in time. It was once filled with 2000 years but there are only a few grains left. To dive deeper into my science fiction story which should be based on well researched historical facts, similar to 'Abydos', I travelled to Rome and stayed at a monastery for a couple of days. Close to the roots of our Christian history at the 'Santa Croce de Gerusalemme' where some holy relics of Saint Helena are still kept, I was able to gain a lot of inspiration. Based on Stephan's songs I already started to work on some vocal lines. I guess it will take until June to finish the songs. Then let's enter the studio and release the album!

Same here. I also love "Christ 0" and I have an enormous respect for the sort of refined musicality that this German band creates within the realms of prog metal. I've been a fan since the "Gos Thing" days and probably I will continue to be.
 
      Kind regards.

I just checked their website and they've had some new News items, but nothing regarding a new album.  I wonder what is happening with that?

Wikipedia lists the album in their discography with a 2010 release date, but who knows if that's accurate or nto.

The new Vanden Plas album "The Seraphic Clockwork" will be released on 04 June 2010 by Frontiers Records. The 8 songs were recorded at Bazement Studio by engineer Markus Teske and produced by the band.

The story of the concept album was written by Andy Kuntz and tells about a journey in time. The protagonist, who lives in 16th century Rome, comes under the spell of an Old Testament prophecy. He travels back to Jerusalem in the year 33 anno Domini where he must face his God-given destiny.

Stephan Lill about the new album: "I think that my preference for heavier bands shines through more than ever before. Heavy riffs, elaborate keyboard and orchestra arrangements plus catchy hook lines come together in a perfect symbiosis which marks Vanden Plas' characteristic style. I feel that we were much more adventurous on The Seraphic Clockwork than ever before."

i can´t wait... Clap
