Original news, posted on 17.06.2009

Floor Jansen, lead vocalist of the now-defunct band After Forever, has announced the through her myspace page that she has started a new metal band. Due to her new commitment in this band, her project with Jorn Viggo (Pagan's Mind), Sinh, has been put on hold to give the new metalband full priority. The information of the line-up and name of Floor's new metal project has yet to be released.

The complete message reads as follows: "It's been a bumpy year so far and I would like to update you a little. Unfortunately my band After Forever stopped and that meant the start of a new period. Looking back I realize how many great and amazing things I got to do and that inspires me to go full speed ahead with new music. Hereby an update about what I do today and what my plans for the future are:

After the final stop I started missing the metal scene and it's music and decided I wanted to come back ASAP with a new metalband. To accomplish this I want to work with other songwriters to first write and record an album. A live band will be formed after that to get me back on stage where I long to be so much!

When Waldemar Sorychta (Grip Inc., Enemy Of The Sun, ao) contacted me; the first composer was found. As a fan of Grip Inc. the idea of working together was a big honour and a first step in creating a sound! The combination of Waldemar's unique style and experience as songwriter/producer made my dream come closer to reality. I also asked my After Forever colleague Joost van den Broek for his great synth sounds and arrangements. Despite his busy schedule he wanted to come on board immediately with great enthusiasm and the songwriting team was complete!

The sound will become a unique blend of the personal style we know these musicians from, but not yet together in one album which is to become heavy and very metal!

The songwriting has just begun! Who will join this team in the future is not known yet nor which label will release the album. All we can say for now; next year there will be new band and a new album!

I will keep updating you and I promise to give you a preview as soon as possible!"

FANTASTIC news! Floor is too talented to not be fronting some other band since After Forever disbanded. I can't wait to hear more about it, and hear the music itself!
