The latest AFM signing, the German-Swedish band DIONYSUS, having such known musicians such as Olaf Hayer (LUCA TURILLI singer) and Ronny Milianowicz (ex-SINERGY drummer), will release their debut album in summer 2002. The songs were recorded at the Rhön Studios in Fulda (a.o. EDGUY, AVANTASIA) and produced by EDGUY mastermind TOBIAS SAMMET. The songs were mixed by Tommy Newton, who already produced both legendary "Keeper Of The Seven Keys" albums of Helloween. He is currently working on the DIONYSUS songs in the AREA 51 studios. Everyone, who wants to get a first listening impression can get this on the AFM Homepage and/or on the AFM label sampler "The Next Generation Part 2". On both you will find the demo version of "Time Will Tell", with which they got the deal with AFM Records.
