Andy Winter (WINDS, AGE OF SILENCE) has posted an extensive year-end summary on the official WINDS forum located at The main points from the posting are as follows:

* WINDS are still working on the new album. Andy says they have now sifted through the "terra-quads of music" that was recorded, and the guitars, drums and vocals for the album are now finalized. He plans to re-record his piano parts before taking the album to mix some time in the spring.

* The possibility of an additional guest appearance on the forthcoming WINDS album by Dan Swanö has been discussed. Dan's performance on two songs has already been confirmed, and the possibility for a third song is, according to Andy, "definitely a possibility" at this point.

* Andy mentions that AGE OF SILENCE wants to record the new album soon, but will have to wait until WINDS is finished before they can pursue that avenue. As previously announced, the songwriting for the new upcoming AGE OF SILENCE CD has been completed for quite some time, so it is just a matter of finding time for recording.

* The as-yet-untitled solo project by Andy is also slowly taking shape. Hellhammer (MAYHEM, DIMMU BORGIR) has recorded drums for four tracks and will do another five tracks some time in the new-year. Andy is getting in touch with old friends to fill possible vocalist spots for the project.
