Control Human Delete update: CHD 2.0. CHD 2.0, Why 2.0?
Couple of reasons, first.. we're working very hard to create our second album. We think it will be a huge leap forward musically, sonically and creatively. Second, our line-up from Terminal World Perspective changed, we became much stronger with the addition of guitarist Axis, his prog background is adopted into the future CHD sound.
The biggest suprise in the new line-up is Fractal. Yes, he is a drummer. Does this mean CHD will no longer use a drumcomputer? No it doesn't but Fractal will play a huge percentage of the drums for the new record. Besides his drumskills Fractal also plays guitar and keys so his contribution on the next album will be enormous.
With Axis and Fractal added to our line-up we're back in the same form as we were during the Error Spectre era, this obvisiously means we're reaching back into that era and mingle it with the power of the TWP era.
I can't tell you much more other than we got 50% written, we're working from different places with our mobile studios and demo'ing our asses off. I think we got much more influences into our new songs compared to previous work. Void has got new conceptual writing going on as well. We hope to bring you some rough new material and studio-vids any time soon on this page.
We're a bit in a transition period right now, we're mostly writing for the new album so the number of gigs will be small, we're also rehearsing for upcoming shows with Fractal on live drums. Announced gigs on short notice will be done old fashioned with drumcomputer and with material from TWP.
People ask us frequently by mail and on this page how long they'll have to wait for the new album, all I can say about it is that we're heading towards recording our new album somewhere in 2010... so hope yall can wait that long! Mail and praises about us and the future are appreciated, hope you'll continue to do just that!

Are you going to play live to promote Mind's Portrait?full interview
If so, do you intend to invite on stage one, or more vocalists?
Or maybe AEON ZEN is a studio project?
I can say that Aeon Zen will definitely be playing live. I am currently working and rehearsing with a live band consisting of musicians in the UK. The plan is to use one lead vocalist, alongside two guitarists and a keyboard player, as well as myself on bass and Lloyd on drums. Right now, I can confirm that guitarist Reece Fullwood (Eumeria, solo artist) will be a part of the Aeon Zen live band, and it is great to have an amazing player like him on board. So there is even more talent in the Aeon Zen ranks! It is sounding fantastic so far, so I can assure you that we will definitely be one to watch once we get out there playing shows! I am in regular touch with all of the guests on the album and hopefully our paths will cross live.
I've got 11 new songs finished and everything is ready to record a new album. The recording starts next week on Monday, July 13 2009 with drum tracks!
My plan is to record a few video clips from each day of the album recording, write some text and publish it all here for every day of the album recording. So, you'll be witnessing "the making of" videos before the album is even finished!
The working title for the album (and probably the one that will stay in the end) is Destination Unknown.
I'm taking you on this journey with me and we'll see where it takes us, our destination is still unknown ;)

Losta Vreto gets the rockrace treatment!:
Kosta Vreto: I cant just name one guitar player or musician. I grew up listening to all kind of music and players, so everyone has theyre little share. If i had to name three guitarists though, i would definitely say, Paul Gilbert, Mattias IA Eklundh and Greg Howe...full interview
Kosta Vreto: Inspiration for the new album...well, that's a really personal thing.So let's put it on a bigger picture and say, life.The new album is gonna be more direct and in your face so to speak.There are songs that are complicated and aggressive and some really laid back tunes as well.There are going to be some songs with classical and acoustic guitars and a song with no guitars at all. This time the music was all about getting my self and my feelings out, so you can expect a variety of music in there.And of course, some really cool guest appearances...
